I’m a podcast listener. I listen while doing house chores, while walking or jogging around my neighborhood, and whenever I need to get out of my head but don’t want to read or watch television. Surprisingly, I never listen to podcasts while drawing or painting.
Here are my favorite (mostly visual arts) art-related podcasts:
