Meant to be “contemporary art talk without the ego,” Bad at Sports features conversations with artists and curators that are meant to be like talking with a good friend over beers. If you’re really looking to binge, we recommend this podcast– it’s been producing episodes for over a decade!
This podcast asks the question that everyone wants to know, but is too afraid to ask. How do artists make and handle money? Host Honor Eastly interviews successful artists and asks questions about their financial situation. The episodes range from practical–such as how to do taxes or ask for a raise–to personal.
Hosted by: The Jealous Curator (Danielle Krysa)
In Art For Your Ear, Host Danielle Krysa brings up-and-coming artists to gossip. Seriously though…get the inside scoop on these artists as they talk about their personal lives, motivations behind their work, and other artists they have worked with. But don’t tell anyone! (JK)
