My Favorite Podcasts for Artists

Yes, I am still listening to podcasts for artists like crazy.

Podcasts for artists

Yes, I want to continue to share what I’m listening to with you!

And yes, it’s going to be awhile before my own podcast is ready to share with the world. (why do projects always take so much longer than we imagine they will?)

Below you’re gonna find a list of some shows I’ve been paying attention to and drawing inspiration from. Keep sending me your recommendations of podcasts for artists too.

Happy listening!

The Fiber Artist Podcast with Cindy Bokser

This show is aimed at fiber artists but Cindy is a really great interviewer who asks wonderful questions. Don’t let the genre throw you off.

For example, I found her interview with Instagram influencer Eduardo Morales really inspiring.

If you’re an art history geek like me, you might enjoy The Modern Art Notes Podcast. I love listening to smart people get together and go deep into an artist’s work.

There’s so much here to choose from! My favorites episodes include the fascinating survey of 19th century photographer Carleton Watkins and this interview with one of my favorite painters, the incredible Wayne Thiebaud.

Dave Conrey has had a long-standing podcast for artists about creative conversations and it’s still going strong!

This episode on the new creative economy and how it’s hurting artists was really thought-provoking. He talks about a lot of different things here and left me with much to think about.

This episode was about Dave’s thoughts after agreeing to do an art show at the last minute and pulling it together in record time.  The premise made me laugh but the episode itself had a lot of valuable takeaways.

Finally, Elizabeth Gilbert’s podcast Magic Lessons is aimed at all creatives, not just artists, and it’s super-inspiring.

Be sure to check out the episodes with Brene Brown on “Big Strong Magic,” (season 1 episode 12). Also don’t miss “Dear Creativity and Fear” (season 1 episode 9).

There’s some summer podcast listening for your holiday weekend. I hope you find something there that you really enjoy!
