About the Podcast

What's Art Got to Do With It?
Unleash your aesthetic consciousness.
What's Art Got to Do With It? is communal pondering with creators and others about aesthetic experiences and approaches to art and life. Rooted in the idea that we share a mutualism with one another and the natural world, conversations are wide-ranging and often veer off course.

Nothing is off-limits. We have fun. Go deep. Keep it real.
