  1. Hello Mr. Green, I truly enjoyed your podcast, is a fantastic outlet in support of the arts. The interview with Catherine Grenier was excellent and very informative. Honestly, I didn’t have a clue who Alberto Giacometti was, and after coming across this podcast, I became familiar with his sculptures. Thank you so much for supporting the arts and for dedicating your time to this platform as a place to educate your listeners. Your show is so inspiring, and it motivates me as a multimedia journalist to continue creating content in support of the arts. I became a new subscriber to your website, and I will certainly keep up with your weekly episodes. Thank You.
