A great podcast by a good looking guy from Western Mass

Really enjoying this podcast

There’s so much honest, thoughtful and enlightening content on this podcast. I find it challenging and inspiring as an individual, but also affirming and instructive as an artist. I don’t know of another podcast that collectively illuminates the real experience of being an artist, the deep cultural and political issues we all face, plus the meaning and influence of art, all in the same place - so I’m thankful to Michael and the artists involved for this. And the first episode being with Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards was the best sort of icing!

One of the best interviewers out there

Michael has a profound talent for connecting with artists and making them feel comfortable, and getting them to open up. His ability to listen rather than talk over his guests makes him one of the best interviewers I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. Throught-provoking and extremely engaging. Nice job, Michael!
