About time!

I've always wanted an interesting artist podcast by artists for artists so I was thrilled to find The Conversation. So many great interviews conducting in an intimate, informal setting. Subscribe now!

A worthy listen for anyone in (or interested in) the arts

Though The Conversation's artist-centric episodes are definitely worthwhile, I've enjoyed the podcast more and more as Shaw has expanded the guest list to include other members of the art ecosystem. To me, there's a lot of value in hearing a practicing artist engage with gallerists/dealers, writers/critics, and other characters about how they see their roles and the industry overall. The somewhat different line of questioning tends to lead to less practiced, more revealing answers than those types of guests are used to giving. And the listener benefits.

If you want to learn more about how the art world works -- without suffering your way through too much dry prose -- subscribe.

Direct and relatable

Michael Shaw's conversation style is friendly, but get to the core of an issue when one is at hand. At times it might not work with certain personalities in the art world who attempt to cloak themselves in mystery, but Michael rarely interviews that type of person. This is a great podcast especially those in Southern California or if you just want to know what is going on in that area.
