Amy Beecher is a visual artist working in installation, digital imaging, sound, and text. In 2013 she created a podcast, The Amy Beecher Show, as an excuse to invite people to her 160 square foot Brooklyn apartment. She's since moved, and The Amy Beecher Show has moved with her. Like an easily amazed and distracted therapist, Beecher opens doors to the inner workings of her subject's artistic lives, inviting guests to reflect on their work, their process, and, mostly, everything else.

Listen, learn, laugh

Great conversations, esoteric introductory monlogues, and a through line of curiosity. One my favorite studio-listens.

Personal and powerful conversations

Highly personal and textured conversations with artists and the like. I often get as much out of their commentary on life and such as I do with the art talk. Amy is a powerful interviewer!
