Like this show a lot but

I love women discussing art history in a casual conversational manner! But my main issues from giving 5 stars are because 1) the audio quality is terrible. I know they are still in the early stages and maybe haven’t got the funds to get better equipment yet, but in order to up their game professionally I feel this is an important investment. Volumes differ between speakers which is very jarring. 2) sometimes they get too excited and speak over each other or giggle way too frequently 3) ads cut in at random times- literally in the middle of someone’s sentence. All of these little things add up to such a bother that I can’t finish episodes sometimes.

Excellent podcast

I heard about the Art History Babes on another podcast. The promo was intriguing so I decided to give it listen. The promo did not do them justice. The Art History Babes are so much better. The podcast is entertaining, educational and just fun to listen to. I definitely recommend this to everyone. Keep up the good work.

v important pls read

These ladies are absolutely wonderful. I love the variety of topics they cover (different types of artists, styles, art eras, etc). I know a lot of people have commented saying they laugh too much & go off on little tangents, but in all honesty, that’s what I really love about them. I am an artist myself and when I listen to them I feel like I’m having an organic conversation about art with them. So I’d say it’s definitely personal preference if you like something more lecture like, or more of a conversation. They certainly do their research and I learn something new every time I listen to them. The first one I ever listened to was “Weird Putti,” and oh my god, I laughed so hard. It was informative but also hilarious. Highly recommend this podcast if this style fits your vibe.
