Welcome to Snap Sessions!, a podcast that looks at artists and their creative pursuits from Northern California to Europe and beyond, as well as investigating provocative articles and broadcasts across the political spectrum. On a daily basis we are overwhelmed by a variety of writings and programs in a dizzying array of venues. And scores of creative people respond in a multiplicity of imaginative genres. Snap Sessions! talks to contemporary artists about their creative ventures, and digests political articles that we miss.
