Master of Articulation

I really enjoyed listening to your most recent podcast with Joy Redstone. She will go far as an artist with her skills to describe her thoughts, process, and motivation for creating art. That’s a level of competence which seems to flow so naturally through her.

So Good

I enjoy Todd and Wes’ as host as much as the Artists they talk to. They allow me as a listener to really get to know the art process and the artist they talk to. I really appreciate the links they give in each artists written blurb, I can listen an look at the images as they talk as if I was in a gallery.

Masterpiece in the making!!

Tenet is a great podcast on so many levels. The hosts Todd Pierson and Wes Brown interview a wide range of visual artists and those connected with the art world from curators, to influential figures in the art world. It is educational for upcoming artist and legends in the field. They dive deep into the lives and stories of some of the most fascinating people in the art world. Their great topics from humanity to mental health and the importance of art and how it crosses all walks of life. It is funny, entertaining, educational. It is a recorded history in the making. As the pod cast evolves, the host hone their skills is bringing out the best of those who they interview. A must listen to.
