Informative and entertaining

I’m really enjoying this series. It dovetails nicely with the Ken Burns documentary, but stands on its own as well. Looking forward to seeing the museum again on our next visit.

I’m so excited I found this podcast

But where are all the season 1 episodes. They don’t come up. I really want to hear Mary Chapin Carpenter.

Good insights

Some of the artists I know well and some I hardly know anything about them at all. But each episode has been interesting and insightful. Good interviews and good music.
