It’s pretty cool!

I’ve been a listener for a while now. These women are extremely informative on the topics they discuss, and listening to them talk is like hanging out with good friends talking about art, which is awesome. This podcast not only covers all the art I’m interested in, it also provides a feeling of being a part of a group of friends which is filling a huge void since the pandemic for me. Thank you so much for this!

I have three main issues when it comes to this podcast though. The first is the sound quality. I’ve watched some of the YouTube videos of these episodes, and always see hand-held microphones which produce different levels of loudness depending on how close or far away you are from the mic, and it definitely comes across in the podcast audio where some speakers are louder than others. It makes it difficult to listen to because I’m often turning up volume for some speakers and quickly lowering it when the audio gets too loud. I think even some cheap table top mics or headphones would produce a better, more stable, audio quality than the hand-held ones.

The second issue is it would be really cool if there was more equality in who talks on the podcast. I get the sense that Corrie is the main one who leads the podcast because she is the main one who speaks most of the time. It can sometimes seem as though Corrie is taking most of the spotlight and it would be really nice if there was more time for the four Babes to speak, especially Jen and Ginny who seem less frequent on the podcast than Corrie and Natalie.

Third is horoscopes. I get that you gals are into astrology and witchcraft sort of things, and that’s totally cool. My only wish is for talk about these things to go down a bit because it’s not really relevant to 99% of the art you’re discussing.

Thanks for hearing me out! I know that hearing criticism is always hard, and I only mention these things because I think that it will make the podcast that much better. I’m a huge fan, and these really are only minor issues. Keep up the amazing work!

a little less wine

These podcasts wear thin fast. If you have no background in the subject (which is fine, most people wouldn't) then you'll get some interesting, basic perspectives -- the same stuff everyone reads in basic textbooks. But while the chatters have plenty of personal opinions (not art historical opinions -- personal opinions) I'm amazed that four people with advanced degrees have nothing whatsoever to add to the actual subject of art history. I thought this was sort of fun at first, but it got tedious, vapid, and depressing pretty fast. They like themselves, as a subject, more than they like art. Juvenile.

Banging

I personally love this podcast. It’s like talking shop with my fellow art history nerds over a glass(es) of wine on a Friday night and I’m here for it. I want to be your friends so badly. You guys make me laugh and I love the community you create. I really thought your most recent episode was not on toys but ~seggs~ toys and I was wondering, can you guys do more podcasts on the female rep/ poster art/ talk about art and seggs and marketing? Would love to hear your opinions on this topic throughout the ages (based off your individual expertises) because who doesn’t wanna talk about the scandy stuff in art? Love you guys!!! -kae
