    045. Navigating Opportunities: The Writing

    We’ve all had a lot more time on our hands over the last few months than possibly ever before. For most of us, that means we have had more of everything: sleep, food, and hopefully studio time. The studio can be a tough place when the ideas aren’t flowing, and maybe there is something you ...

    The work of a maker can be extremely solitary at times, but that doesn’t mean those voices we contend with stop. Even when the voices of other people are quiet, there is a constant discussion in our heads of whether or not the work we are creating is good or should even be made. Some ...

    040. “What Did You Mean By That?” with Ian C. Hess

    For our 40th episode, we decided that it would be good to take a step back and revisit a few of the topics we have covered over the last year and a half. To help us clarify, our good friend Ian C. Hess joins us for the first in a recurring series where he quotes ...

Not just for artists

I stumbled upon this podcast and am glad I did. Although I’m not an artist “per say”, I can’t stop listening to the hosts and how they address life in general with such an insightful wisdom. I love the deep and thoughtful conversations that address some very common issues we all face in life. Plus they had me busting up laughing! Highly recommend subscribing to this podcast. You’ll be glad to did.

Encouraging and thought provoking

Shockoe Artspeak is extremely encouraging and thought provoking. Ryan and Garreth are tapping into a lot of foundational elements and thought that surround art and design. This has been a helpful window into cultural engagement. They are dealing wonderfully with what sits at the foundation of art and what drives a lot of the cultural content that we all come across daily. It’s been great to learn from these guys and their guests!
