These are the voices in my head that have helped to shape my life as an artist and writer. Admittedly, one of these is my own podcast... just paying it forward people =P.

Listen to deeply personal, insightful, and thought-provoking stories from the world’s leading thinkers and doers including best-selling authors, artists, peak performance psychologists, happiness researchers, entrepreneurs, startup founders, artists, venture capitalists, and even former bank robbers. Former guests have included Tim Ferriss, Seth Godin, Justine Musk, Scott Adams, Rob Bell, David Heinemeier Hansson, Elle Luna, Jordan Harbinger Brett Mckay, and Simon Sinek.

I've been listening to Srini's interviews for over 5 years! This is not your typical interview show, Srini asks deeply thoughtful questions, in fact it's not uncommon to hear guests on this show gush about how they've "never been asked that before." Just like every one of his guests, Srini Rao is truly unmistakable.

Discover new art in an unexpected way. 1000 words is actually a vast understatement for what a photo, or any work of art, is worth. Each episode of Art Ink takes you on an art-inspired adventure triggered by a single piece of art. Sometimes you'll be entertained by fiction that relates back to the featured work, and other times we'll give you a glimpse into the lives of our featured artists through narrative nonfiction. PS: Yes this is a shameless plug my own podcast, which probably would not exist if not for the 2 shows above it. Love and gratitude for all the voices in my head ;).

Another long-term art podcast, Artists Helping Artists is full of all kinds of tips targeted mostly toward painters. Leslie is a marketing genius and often shares tips far beyond the typical social media advice. There are occasional interviews with working artists and rotating cast of regular co-hosts, who are all wonderfully charming.

ART FOR YOUR EAR brings you stories from some of my favorite contemporary artists. When I studied Art History, the best part was, well, the gossip. I loved finding out why artists did certain things, what was going on in their personal lives, and behind-the-scenes details about other artists they knew and worked with. This podcast is exactly that ... inside-scoop stories from the artsiest people I know. You'll hear first-hand from these talented, successful, full-time artists (who also happen to be regular people with hilarious stories) BEFORE they’re in the Art History books. - Danielle (aka The Jealous Curator)

I've only listened to a few episodes of this podcast, but the ones I did listen to have impacted me in a big way. Danielle Krysa is a fun, down to earth, host whose eager curiosity is palpable.
