Ted Mills is a wonderful interviewer! Great show. Love it!!!
I stumbled upon Ted Mills' podcast and am so glad that I did. His conversations with artists are open and engaging. They remind those of us who-are-not-artists-but-love-art that you don't have to be an expert to get out and enjoy the art and artists in our community. Bravo!
