  1. I just discovered this podcast. I live in a small town in Virginia and I am a Polish expat. I do not feel connected to any art community where I live. Thanks to this podcast I learned about so many good artists. I especially liked the interview with Ali, maybe because she is a mom like me and close to my age, but also because she is a great artist and a wonderful human.

    1. That’s great Paulina, I’m glad you are finding them useful.

    John Dalton! Hands down, you are the BEST interviewer I know of-you listen-you focus-and let the artists come forth in all their glory. Unusual high quality.
    Thank you-if I had $ I’d send you a box full. Instead, having none, I send a heap of gratitude and accolades.

    1. Thank you for the kind words Kathy, I really appreciate them.
