The. Best. Podcast. Ever.

While I am deeply interested in the subject matter, and while Tamar approaches and presents it in a clear, captivating, and innovative way, I would probably listen to any podcast she created. The production value is so high, and the combination of her excellent radio voice and the pace of each show is almost meditative, yet engaging at the same time. So thank you for this beautiful creation, and in the future if you produce The Lonely Beet, or The Lonely Housefly, I’ll probably listen to that to.

Challenging and Reassuring

If Ken Burns ever decides to do a 10hr doc on American artists, I hope he talks @lonelypalette into doing the narration. Avishai’s voice is deeply reassuring while challenging your preconceptions. If you haven’t heard, you’re missing out.
