30,000 is the number of years ago Neanderthals lived and number of years dogs have been domesticated. It’s also the current download count for CHF’s podcast for artists–quite a landmark. The podcast first aired in July 2015 and is also available on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play Music, and various devices (like Alexa, Sonos and Google Home) via TuneIn. Early episodes featured renowned artist C.W. and business manager Rebecca Mundy discussing their partnership and what fame has meant for the artist’s career; a gallery director explaining how artist-entrepreneurs are at the core of city revitalization, creating economic growth; and a working artist detailing how business training and deliberate collaboration propels an art practice. Since then, guests have included a CEO advisor, arts and labor journalist, teachers, curators, and a variety of business experts. The podcast team is committed to interviews and content listeners won’t get anywhere else. Accessible 24/7, The Thriving Artist delivers educational content to a busy audience in a digestible format that artists already consume.
