The Artist Politic is a talk show focused on the thoughts and wisdom of creative folks.
Starting with exploring the creative process of each guest, we quickly work into discussing what is going on in the world. We explore topics of the day that are important to all of us: Racial Equality, Gay Rights, Gun Control, Mental Health, Politics, Climate Change, Immigration, Feminism, etc.
And, most importantly, we explore where these topics and artistry intersect.
