4. The Jealous Curator | ART FOR YOUR EAR
ART FOR YOUR EAR brings you stories from some of my favorite contemporary artists. Hosted by Danielle Krysa who has studied Art History, the best part she found was the gossip. She loved finding out why artists did certain things, what was going on in their personal lives, and behind-the-scenes details about other artists they knew and worked with. This podcast is exactly that ... inside-scoop stories from the artsiest people. You'll hear first-hand from these talented, successful, full-time artists BEFORE they're in the Art History books.

7. Janina Ramirez
Art is the truest expression of the workings of the mind, free from learnt language. More than that, it is the visual expression of culture, politics, society, religion, emotion, zeitgeist, channelled through the brush, chisel, or hands of creative individuals. Understanding art allows us to understand history: to pin it with images, and pepper it with the faces, colours, drama and expression of its time. This series is designed to give bite-sized insights into the world of Art History, bringing one image to life across 20 minutes through discussion with experts.

8. Art History Babes
This is a podcast by four babes getting their masters' in art history, toiling over their everyday grad student duties, and drinking a lot of wine all the while. We find that our research interests, while incredibly specific, consistently draw parallels to our modern lives. These conversations are usually facilitated by a few bottles of wine and the result is always a fun and insightful discussion.
