Make yourself comfortable with a cup of tea to discuss art, culture, character, and Scotland with Joy Clarkson. Johann Wolfgan von Geothe once said, “One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.” This podcast aims to help listeners do just that. Each week Joy explores three pieces of art (visual, literary, and musical) centred around a theme. An arts lover and doctoral candidate residing near the North Sea of Scotland, Joy believes in the power of story and beauty to help shape us into well-rounded people and to help us think with complexity and compassion about the world. This podcast is for those who love art, who want to educate themselves by engaging with good books and beauty, and who want to hear the occasional escapades of an overly idealistic doctoral student who loves tea and trains. So sit down with your favourite hot beverage and enjoy an hour of culture and conversation.

Absolutely delightful!

I’m so glad I stumbled upon Joy’s podcast! Each episode sparks such thoughtfulness and contemplation. She speaks in a beautifully articulate and insightful way that always leaves me feeling full of wonder and appreciation for God.

I want books, music and beauty

I really like the podcast where Joy is talking about books of music and art and the connections between them. The podcast where Joy is interviewing someone else or talking about various other topics I do not enjoy as much. I hope that joy will stick with books music and art. When I hear those I always learn something new.
