Off to a great start!
The host of the show has a rather pleasant voice. It would be nice if she introduced herself so as to create more of a relationship with the audience though. Having said that, the tone of the show is rather accessible and conversational nonetheless, so listening to the show is like sitting around the kitchen table or at a coffee shop with a friend or two.
I also liked that this episode, at least,was presented in a way where I could stop and come back feeling like I hadn't missed a beat. 43 minutes in this day and age is something of a commitment. What's more, the subject of art can get pretty heady, so it is nice to absorb and reflect the content of the show without feeling overwhelmed.
