  • Magnificent!

    Ben Luke is one of the very finest and most likable journalists in the arts. Almost ridiculously knowledgeable and informed, his palpable enthusiasm for good art is wildly infectious. No one else draws out such fully realized portraits of artists and their processes. I am completely addicted to this podcast.

    I love, love this podcast! The conversations with artist are both informative and inspirational. I always receive some NEW thought or eureka moment from the featured artist. Approx 60 min in length, but real in-depth interviews. I love the format of the show, and the tip on where the artist is currently showing their work! This is my all time favorite podcast. Keep it coming!
