I really enjoy this podcast, it shows art in the light that goes beyond a gallery wall -- art in life. Art as something we all create and can be a part of. Way on the fringes, living life as art, as a connection to the spiritual and to the Earth. Excellent podcast.

Awesome!

Rank #2: Raw Material Season 5: San Francisco— Stories From The Model City

Podcast cover
Read more
Season 5 of Raw Material takes inspiration from a 41 x 37-foot scale model of the city that was recently unearthed, refurbished, and distributed in pieces to neighborhood libraries. Listen in as residents tell stories of life in this vibrant, diverse, and ever-changing frontier city. Produced by award-winning radio documentarians the Kitchen Sisters, this season examines themes of urban development and identity in a city poised on the edge of the continent and built on landfill, steep hills, and the dreams of immigrants and pioneers. From memories of the luminous Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island to recollections of the freaky fun house at Playland, from North Beach to the Mission, Stories from the Model City brings to life the fascinating and troubled evolution of San Francisco.
