What podcasts you listen to, besides 3 Point Perspective?



  • OH my thanks for all the recommendations @CLCanadyArts and yeah i listen to podcasts all the time. 3 point perspective is of course my favorite one, but chiustream is awesome too!

    Artcafe with Maciej Kuciara has some great episodes too.

    Besides that Will Terry And Jake Parker has really great videos on YouTube that you can Just play when you are drawing.

    @idid I love Levar Burton Reads. It’s not an art podcast, but just him doing a phenomenal job reading short stories. They are great for filling the creative bank account. Just gets the mind going...

    @Pamela-Fraley Levar, is wonderful. Reading Rainbow was my everything when I was a kid. I'll be sure to listen to these.

    His voice gives me the same feeling that Bob Ross' does. ❤

  • @idid guardian children’s books, is good too. Unfortunately they’ve not updated it in a few years



  • In the art related field I listen to One Fantastic Week (1FW), I think they upload it as a podcast, but I listen to it on youtube. It's for fantasy artists, but I've found it helpful to have a healthier relationship to art in general and get you thinking about art business strategies. It's a great motivator to get to work.

    For fun podcasts-
    Criminal- It has a variety of crime related, real stories that are very interesting. Sometimes it can get dark, depending on the episode.
    This is Love- Sister podcast to Criminal, focusing on interesting, real stories related to love- not just romantic, but all kinds.
    Ear Hustle- Podcast run in a prison. You learn about the lives of prisoners and prison culture in that particular prison.
    The Jordan Harbinger Show- Has a variety of topics and guests, and is generally geared toward self improvement.

  • Wow, so many great suggestions! Truly love this forum. Thank you everyone!



  • I tend to listen to pod casts about topics im interesting in creating things about. Like fairy tales or food or something.

    I listen to comiclab because it’s hilarious about webcomics

    I listen to Gastropod because it’s about food and id like to write a food comic!

    Art history babes is about art history grad students hanging out and taking about about particular art history topics. I learned a lot about the origin of purple paint (mind blowing)

    What kinds of topics interest you?


  • SVS OG

    ComicLab is great, informative, and hilarious:

    The Afternoons with Josh and Ken is hilarious

    ForceCenter for Star Wars discussion:



  • I'm totally going to revisit this thread and broaden my inputs. Thanks, everyone, for the list of podcasts



  • @JoannaH yeah. I bookmarked this thread. I am on @CLCanadyArts's first suggestion The illustration department. So good.



  • @xin-li , definitely agree with you! Nick’s passion for picture books is like ink bleeding through my radio. Would be such an honor to one day be interviewed on his podcast.


  • SVS OG

    Bookmarking like crazy. You already covered the ones I listen to. Thanks everyone!



  • Hello!

    A podcast that I follow closely: Art Side of Life.
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_8EF6wpafOGN6X5lnM6YFQ

    It is really cool to hear personal stories of many artists and illustrators all around the world.

    Jake Parker actually participated in on of the episodes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuB5RylZZw0).

    Very inspirational! 🙂
