A Gem of a series

I happened upon Make/Time podcast when searching for information about a particular artist, and that podcast was filled to the brim with gems—why one makes work, how one makes work, both the nuts and bolts as well as the bigger picture. And, I found myself downloading more episodes and continually being stopped in my tracks. These podcasts inspire, bolster, foster the world of making and making in the world.

Thanks to Stuart Kestenbaum and the Makers for such candid, lucid, inspiring podcasts.
