What podcasts you listen to, besides 3 Point Perspective?





  • @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, thanks for all the recos!

    I've added Draftsmen, Illustration Department, and One Fantastic Week to the list.

    I may have to cut this list down a bit now that I've added three more art ones 😅



  • 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! 🙂
