A great podcast
A really great episode as was Kwame's last week. Really looking forward to more episodes. As an emerging podcast producer I had an idea quite similar. Hey ho, the BBC got there first and and of course doing it better than I could!!!
Real insightful podcast
Beautifully playful and insightful glimpses into the real life of these artists and their idiosyncratic creative processes. A must listen for anyone interested in art.
Which Studio ?
I thought the intention was to hear from Artists specifically within their Studio about their process, but, the theme seems to have wandered and is now an interview that occurs wherever is convenient. Too much theatre stuff. The interviews with some writers have been entertaining, but lets hear from more of those Visual artists like Hockney and Ackroyd and Perry in their actual studios.
