A podcast dedicated to the greater LA Art world, following artist, Thomas Adams, around the city interviewing artists, gallerists, curators, and museum directors- but mostly, artist. This podcast is an attempt to introduce the LA art scene to a larger audience that might not be exposed to art as much as they would like to be but also to have a forum for us to talk about our art world to each other.

Excited for what's to come.
Mr. Adams is one of the best people I know who is a part of one of the best families that I know. Only one episode, thus far, has been pulled out of the cauldron of amazing ideas I'm sure this guy has got brewing. I love how he got started by sharing his plans for the show and his intentions. "I wanna talk about the real stuff here too." Nothing but support for the journey of this show. I'm super excited for what's to come!
