Informative, yet enjoyable
Although the content is interesting, to be honest the reason I started listening was for a play I was in recently. It was necessary to aquire a Russian Accent. This podcast was a delightful start to my aquisition. Enjoy not only the in depth analysis of art, but also the way it is delivered.
A candid slice of the LA art scene
Leave it to a Moscow transplant with a pedigree from the Hermitage to put a finger on the pulse of the diverse LA art scene. Articulated in a crisp Russian accent, Edward Goldman applies his unique and candid perspective on the galleries, art, artist and institutions that make the LA art scene.
Smart, Informed, Personal, Current
This podcast is wonderful for keeping up with art in LA and current issues in visual art, contemporary visual art. Goldman is smart and supports his comments with clear thought and is entertaining to listen to.
