Professor’s Resource

I just found DTP while searching for open educational resources. I’m an art history professor, ferreting around for fresh and engaging material to excite students’ learning. I assigned Episode 14 “Is It Art?” this week to an Intro to Visual Arts class with a blog requirement. Students are connecting quickly—most of whom have never listened to a podcast or taken an art class. I just listened to your interview with Michael Cothren—what a “goosebumpily” treat that was. You can bet students in my survey class will be tuning in to hear their author.

Thank you Stephanie! You’re offering lots of gifts to the field. I’m going to now become a “Medici to your Botticelli” on Patreon to help you stick to that microphone.

So much more to it

Hearing the behind the scenes dialogue in this podcast has given me a much deeper appreciation for the artwork we have in the world and around us every day... crazy to think that what starts as a spark in the artist’s imagination requires so much more effort on the part of so many people to preserve the work so it can be put in front of us at an exhibition. Thank you!

Educational and Calming

This is not a podcast that I expected to connect with so much. Disturbing the Piece is a great podcast which introduce subjects that end up with a surprising amount of depth.

Example: the episode about Presidential Portraits taught me a lot about a subject towards which I had never put much thought.

Some of the editing can be at times a bit wonky but the audio itself is largely very good.
