A close look at the Denver Art scene and beyond.

If you care about art, artists, making, curating, museums, galleries… this is the podcast for you. Todd And Wes do an intimate interview with real people. They ask great questions and really listen. As a long time Denver artist I can tell you that I have learned a lot from this Podcast. It’s interesting, funny and thoughtful. I appreciate that they take the extra time to promote people doing meaningful things. Thank you guys for taking the time, it means so very much ❤️

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.
