My name is Amira Rahim and I’m one of the many artists that love to listen to podcasts while I work. This is a great addition to the mix and like the episodes. Short and sweet but packed with info. Can’t wait to see how it progresses.
If You’re Involved with Art, This is It
I’m host of the show, so writing a review could be considered suspect. EXCEPT, that the show is really the creation of the GUESTS, and they are STELLAR. If you’re a WORKING ARTIST, ART COLLECTOR, or ART INDUSTRY professional (restoring, storing, transporting, curating) visual art, this show is likely to meet a core need. The range of guests, depth of insights, and array of topics makes it an amazing resource.
Insightful & practical
In addition to being fascinating, this podcast offers its audience terrific practical information. I'm not an visual artist, but as someone who works in a "creative" field (for which I received no formal business training), I find the guests' advice to be insightful, as well as applicable to my work. Also, as a journalist, I appreciate how well the host guides the discussion, asking the right questions, and keeping the interview moving without getting in the guest's way.
