Guided by the notion that curiosity, empathy, and listening are catalysts towards a better understanding of ourselves and our society, Same Wavelength is an exploration of histories – cultural and personal – as a means to reframe our present moment through the artist’s lens.

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!
