I appreciated having a long-form format to talk about my show with insightful questions that made me think about my work on a deeper level than I otherwise might (because I’m trying to make pots and not overthink it!). It’s inspiring to sit down with someone who has had experience doing the very thing you’re doing and can offer their unique perspective and guidance. As a listener, I enjoy hearing about the many facets of my fellow art-makers. None of us is just one thing. We are all kaleidoscopic and the podcast gives me an opportunity to discover what other people are doing/creating/interested in and that could spark an unexpected and wonderful conversation and/or collaboration. We’re all so busy and it’s hard to see people outside of structured time (i.e. the run of a show) but the podcast has the ability to keep us connected.
