Interesting and timely topics for artists
John is an engaging interviewer with the credibility that comes from being a successful artist himself. He asks questions and shares information about the issues and practices that working artists are concerned with. Highly recommended.
Not Just for Artists...Thoughtful, Relevant Interviews
I recently discovered John T. Unger and Art Heroes Radio, and I can't recommend it to enough people. John is a warm, talented interview with a sense of humor and playfulness that creates an interesting repartee with his guests. John and his guest artists share real-life examples and fresh ideas relevant to artists and business people alike.
Very Well Done
This podcast features interviews with artists and art industry professionals in a variety of different aspects of the discipline. It touches on a wide variety of topics that are relevant to artists from business, spiritual, motivational, and practical angles. It is incredibly informative. We learn a lot about the life of artists everywhere, their struggles and goals, and their triumphs as well as their missteps. John does this all in an informal, conversational tone that is engaging yet not intrusive--a perfect way to spend an hour in your studio simply listening and working. He draws forth insights from his guests that are pertinent to lives of artists regardless of their medium, and shares his own story at the same time. It's truly an educational experience to listen to these, and you'll be developing your understanding of what living the life of an artist is really like. Highly recommend this one for any student, pro, apprecianado, collector, gallery owner, or simply the curious.
