    Welcome to Accession

    Art contains exactly half of an old and powerful magic. It can build entire worlds from nothing but paint and canvas, tell epic stories inside a single frozen moment, and transport us across time, space, and ourselves. This show is about making that magic. Welcome to Accession.

Intimate and beautifully crafted

I just met Ponders at a panel he was on at Podcast Movement and was intrigued at the concept. I listened to the episode on Night and was blown away. Incredibly immersive, intimate, with gorgeous writing and highly technical sound design. Can’t wait to listen to the rest!

Delightfully informative

I’m always learning something new from this podcast. Can’t wait for Season 2 which is going to give us a cross-country look at museums while exploring the theme of “Home.”

In one word, amazing.

T.H. Ponders makes studying art enjoyable. If you’ve never taken an interest in art or art history, or find it to be a bore, listening to his podcasts makes you completely rethink that outlook. Ponders has a passion for art that emanates through his recordings. Take a listen and you’ll see why many of us agree that this is an excellent podcast.
