Work of Art

This podcast is a work of art in itself and the depth of the conversations so far are amazing! Helping all of the arts become more affordable and span all classes of the population is indeed a worthy mission! Thanks for sharing!

Smart

So glad I found this podcast. The arts are often looked upon as a luxury and rarely given the same respect as the sciences and yet it is the arts that brings together ideas and images the best reflect this moment in time. This is an enjoyable and thought provoking show.
