Finally

Finally, a podcast that talks about issues close to heart for immigrant artists and/or artists of color. Justin is warm, funny and thoughtful also! A great listen

Gracias Favi.

As a Latina who snuck her way into the art world without a formal degree, the imposter syndrome is real. I’m so grateful for this podcast for helping to demystify aspects of the art word with people I can relate to. Every episode is a true gem. Gracias Favi.
