Customer Reviews

Art 101

This show is great for children and adults who have never seen a work of art in their life. Wish it was longer so we could dive into the artists' history and process more, instead of [what ultimately breaks down into] 5min of coverage.
As for celebrity friends, their names are helpful to draw attention, but have almost nothing to contribute other than glowing praise for whaever they're standing in front of. Again, could use more than 3min with each guest so that they have time to come up with at least one original thought or idea.
And as someone else said in the reviews, why not make this about upcoming artists? Newbies, struggling young people, underground talents? They would really benefit from a show like this, and so would the audience, who I hope already know the same 5 intro-level facts about someone like Picasso.

Disappointed

I love Abby on Broad City! I was so looking forward to this podcast, especially as it was recomended by Jessica and Phoebe. Alas, listening to 3 episodes in the car last week, I found it pretty bad. It feels like it's created for elementary age children. The art commentary is so incredibly bland and basic, it was hard to bear. I'm well-informed about art, but by no means an expert, but I found it embarrassing. Sorry to do this but I'm unsubscribing.

Abbi's passion is addicting

I was amazed to see such bad reviews on this podcast. For those who aren't art snobs, this is a perfect look into what makes art, art. Abbi's love & passion for the pieces easily makes you feel the same way just from listening.
