Women-Led Art Podcasts For Every Mood
We've got our fair share of them in the art world...
Art Stuff 08 Feb 2022

There are more podcasts in the world that you could possibly ever listen to, and we’ve got our fair share of them in the art world. In a decade where everyone and their dog is trying their hand at creating a podcast, it can be hard to find the ones that are really worth a listen. It’s been estimated that there are over 2 million podcasts in the world, and over 50 million podcast episodes. If we’re generous and say that each episode is half an hour long (which, trust us, some of them would benefit from being that short), that makes one and a half billion minutes of podcasts.

We also know that podcasts aren’t all suitable for the same moments in your life, and that some suit some moods more than others. We’ve tried and tested a few – to save you some time – to ensure that you’re getting top quality listening.
