Lovely, real, and thought provoking
I'm not an artist( of any kind) I'll never be an artist but when I listen to this podcast I can feel, just for a moment, that I'm having a confidential conversation with a number of artists or writers. Whether it's Raul Pizarro speaking about how we are all beasts and experience enlightenment at different times in our lives or Trebor Healey speaking about how creating a fictional character can actually cause you to visit places you never would, thereby building your life experiences. I love the stream of consciousness conversations of this podcast. I highly suggest it!
A great listen
I love this podcast. I find it so interesting to peek into the lives and inspiration of up and coming artists and writers, really helps me get a broader perspective from my own life. The host keeps the conversation interesting throughout and does a great job in bringing interviewees out of their shell.
Art creates culture, culture creates art
I highly recommend this engaging, thought provoking podcast about artists of various mediums (paint, photography, performance, poetry, writing, theater, etc).
I’ve listened to 6 episodes so far and they keep getting better and better.
Episode 1 features artist Raul based out of Southern California who paints with passion as he deals with muscular dystrophy.
Episode 3- my favorite so far, features Trebor Healey, writer, poet, world traveler and covers topics of Argentinian culture along with gay fairy culture.
I’m learning so much as I dive deep into the featured artists’ lives and passions all hosted by Anthony Moses Sanches whose voice is great for radio and podcasts.
