I love this podcast! The inclusion of music alleviates the focus on purely the visual which could get oppressive. An interesting take. All of the stories and personal histories are wonderful to hear and are inspiring. Occasionally the host’s view towards Christianity gets a bit bitter but he’s otherwise kind, generous, and a funny, delightful interlocutor👏.

This is without a doubt my favorite contemporary art podcast. I feel like I’m in the same room as Brian & the artists he interviews. Conversations wander in many directions but always include educational influences, stories of growing up & dealing with issues that helped & hindered artistic careers & music. Brian is the ultimate interview. He knows when to just listen & how to draw out ideas from introverted guests. His liberal arts background as well as working artist life style really shines in this podcast.
