Refreshing and insightful
A wonderful discussion about the act of art as well as looking beneath the surface of burdens and socio-political fear/terror that artists especially in Thailand must overcome to express themselves. The commentary is fresh and nuanced in its approach to race and class as the outsiders looking in, while hosts Donald and Colin also bring the work to the listener in a full understanding and appreciation of the art in context of the artist and the world, and the artist's world. Definitely worth subscribing.
Totally different podcast
Not like any other podcast- with an interesting blend of Thai arts culture and science fiction this podcast is certain to be unique. Looking forward to how it develops from here on out!
The best conversation online about Mars and whales is also the best conversation about creating art in attitude adjusted Thailand. Sounds niche. It isn't. Donald and Colin and their guests illuminate what it is to make life and art in these endish/liminal days.
