Amazing feminist power

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a while and it is just the easiest and most wonderful thing to listen to during the day. It is packed with art historical narratives and context!! I have learned so much and it has given me an amazing appreciation for art and the messages, whether cultural or political, that art can illustrate. The focus on feminist discussions and art is so enriching and inspiring.

Valley Girl art history

If you like “Oh my God!” Valley girls talking… this show is for you. I am an Art Historian and the topics are not very well researched and they use profanity which is not appreciated. They are silly, annoying, and insipid. They do not elevate the conversation of art at all. Rather they discuss it to a sophomoric level any ten year old will understand. Thier knowledge of art can be found on any Wikipedia page…google it yourself and save yourself valuable time.

No meat on the bones

The topics are not well researched- (at time frustratingly so) - the podcast does not listen like history or art history it listen like social chatting - I think it’s a fine social podcast,but not what I’m into and not what feels to be advertised.
