Fantastic!

Hello Atelier is on my must-listen list. I live the variety of creatives they talk with and the insightful questions asked. As much as more Hello Atelier is always best, I enjoy the length of the episodes. Thank you, Betsy and Jonathan!

A beautifully produced show for makers

I’ve listened to almost every episode of Hello Atelier and it’s a lovely show. Unlike many craft podcasts, this show is highly produced which makes it very easy to listen to. The interviews are tightly edited for great story telling. Betsy knows her stuff and I’m so glad she’s making this show!
