Educational with a twist fun and spark

I have been in entertainment for 40 years working behind the scenes. As a curious person I can say that this podcast has some great guest and info.

When do you know enough? When is a painting finished?

Thought provoking interviews on a multitude of topics is what keeps me coming back.

If you are like me and always learning, then download a few episodes and you will be hooked.
