    Thots and Fears

    Thots and Fears

    In preparation for spooky season, this episode is all about fear. We talk about the fears of today (and fears experienced by your co-hosts) that are exploited within pop culture by taking a closer look at House of the Dragon and She-Hulk. We think critically about the relationship of fandom and violence and how contemporary fears are used to drive TV plot lines.

    Taking fear back to its roots, we look at the use of fear in art history as a visual tool of propaganda in religion, politics, entertainment, and storytelling.

    CONTENT WARNING. When discussing House of the Dragon, we talk about violence against women and child bearers and bodily freedoms concerning abortion.

Accessible, Hilarious, and Genuine

APT is such a good resource for learning about art and pop culture. All discussions are super accessible and get rid of confusing academic language everything that stopped you from liking that art history course in college. These ladies are so genuine and make me cackle with laughter. APT is a must-listen!!

A Voice to Art Enthusiasts and Art Apathys

ArtPop Talk is such a breath of fresh air when it comes to podcasting. Gianna and Bianca discuss different art and pop culture in a very informative and knowledgable way. A clearly well researched podcast, filled with facts and well reasoned opinions on a myriad of contemporary and non-contemporary art history topics. They also do an amazing job relating to the audience in a fun and engaging way. This podcast is for people who know Kiki Smith to the people who think the Mona Lisa is the best art piece out there.
