I want you to know that I’m still working on putting my own podcast together. It’s a huge project, and is going to take some time.
The Working Artist: A Step by Step Guide from Feather to Wings doesn’t have a launch date yet, though it’s definitely getting closer. And I’m getting more and more excited to share it with you.
To learn as much as I can about the genre, I’m listening to other podcasts every day. Most of them are aimed at artists, like mine will be.
I’ve come to realize that there’s something for everyone in the Podcast World.
That’s why I wanted to share what I’m learning with you through this series of Recommended Podcasts for Artists. Not everything I’m going to suggest will appeal, but if you stay with me and stay curious, I think you might just find a few shows that really speak to you. I know that I have.
Feel free to keep sharing your favorite podcasts with me as well!
Here’s what I’m listening to this week:
Art and Faith Conversations is a podcast that’s aimed primarily at Christians but it doesn’t stop there. The conversations are intelligent, wide-wide ranging and inclusive.
The host asks wonderful questions and even the introduction to the series piqued my interest:
“A podcast for the spiritually curious to explore our human and spiritual identity through the integration of art and faith. Discover how we are innately designed to be creative and to find deeper meaning in life through artistic expression. Guests include musicians, dancers, painters, poets, writers, theologians, speakers, and teachers.”
A few of the episodes that I recommend include this interview with painter Natalie Salminen Rude, who brings haiku poetry into her work.
And this episode with artist Chris Soal was an interesting example of following where our work takes us. I was super-curious to learn more about Chris and his sculptures after listening to him speak.
And now for something completely different:
You will either love or hate this completely irreverent show. It’s hosted by two sisters who claim they “feel dead inside” so each week they explore a different work of art to test if it makes them feel more alive.
The first episode is titled “Gaughin Is A Bad Bad Nasty Bad Man,” and it includes their List of Grievances toward the Impressionist artist.
It doesn’t really matter if you agree with their conclusions or not, this show is hilarious and thought-provoking and completely authentic and original.
Back in the more traditional podcast vein, Liron’s Art and Creativity Show is a series of quick podcasts from an artist out of Tel Aviv.
A few of the episodes I liked include
How Long to Get Good in Art as well as
The Future of Art: Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, and How To Sell Your Artwork
And finally, I’m not afraid to admit that I’ve become hooked on the show Cooking by Ear. It’s a cooking podcast that walks you through the preparation of a dish. There’s much more to it than that, I’m advising you check it out yourself.
I listened to this episode and made a Swiss Chard and Spaghetti Frittata as I cooked along.
Proof of my success can be seen the photo above!
