  • Excellent

    Great interviews, insightful and well prepared. One suggestion: can you include images of the artist works ( particularly the ones mentioned in the conversation) on the episode page ?

  • Love this podcast so much

    Many of these artists are new to me and each one is absolutely fascinating. I love the conversation each time and I love the fact that there is a standard list of questions (what music do you listen to when you work? What work of art could you not live without, what are your literary influences, etc). Ben is a great listener / interlocutor. Since I started listening I have been back to see pieces in museums by artists who have been interviewed and have a whole new appreciation of their work.
