Love the podcast

You ladies are doing an awesome job. I especially liked your interview with Sarah Richardson. The topic of cursing was brought up on the episode and a couple of things had to be beeped out. While you have the freedom to use whatever words you choose always remember that cursing is to speech what ink blobs are to calligraphy.

Who would’ve thought?

It was hard for me to imagine that a podcast about such a visual art could be good, but these ladies are killing it! I am a calligrapher with 10+ years of experience and I learn something new with each episode. I’m so glad the Calligraphy Podcast connects me with others who share the love for this art.

What every writer needs!

If you are searching for an inspiring conversation about the art of calligraphy, listen to these artists. The sound quality is excellent and the information rich. The mentoring found here on The Calligraphy Podcast is what every writer needs. Whether your a beginner or a master, you’ll enjoy this place of learning and discussion. Season 2 has been extra special with interviews from extraordinary people like Suzanne Cunningham (episode 3), Jake Weidmann (episode 9), and Heather Held (Episode 12). I can’t wait for more!!
