Tried to find an art history podcast for soooo long (it’s difficult to discuss art through audio) and this one checks all the boxes. Not voiced by a bored sounding dude, not a limited series, not bouncing back and forth between tipsy sorority sisters. Just a calm, descriptive lady choosing really interesting pieces. I only wish there was more content! Thank you for your wonderful show

Incredibly Informative

I grew up with an artist mother who would drag me to museums all of the time. Subsequently, I rebelled and embarassingly now know NOTHING about art. I know I enjoy it but I know nothing about it. I love Allyson's podcast. She makes art accessible and relateable. I learn so much and I'm able to retain the information becuase of the way she presents it. Absolutely reccomend for the art lover and the art dummy (like me) ;)
