It has been said that I am someone who likes to talk. I’m not going to disagree with that. What I will say is that most of the time I do try and have something interesting and engaging to share. I’m not one to waffle and I’m a firm believer in finding and sharing the joy in simple communication. It also turns out that I have a lot to say. So, after considering the idea for some time, I invested in a podcast production studio and The Connection Cast Podcast was born (or launched, like a ship - there was a celebratory brew involved). What the Connection Cast IS The Connection Cast is a carefully created collection of podcasts which I hope will interest a broad audience. It will entertain, engage and allow me to talk without limits. You can see why this podcast has been something of a passion project for me. My vision for The Connection Cast is simple and revolves around three keywords… Curate… Create… Culture Curateas in “Art Curator”. You don’t need to be an art expert to enjoy the arts, at least not the way I talk about it. There will be no stuffiness and complicated talk here. I believe in jargon-free enjoyment for all. Create encompasses a range of topics from ceramics to photography and more. It’s all about communicating something in a way that you are comfortable with. Culture covers a multitude of topics and a few sins. Listen to my take on the latest news, global trends, local stories and the mysteries of the world that should be talked about. There’s very little that you can’t explore, enjoy and discuss that comes under the culture heading. The Connect Cast also allows me the opportunity to feature some very special guests and interviews. What The Connection Cast is NOT This is not a podcast focused purely on art although it will of course feature, given that I run a gallery, am a keen photographer and am passionate about both. This is not a business podcast. This is not my opportunity to share my life story. I’m saving that and all the saucy stories and scandals for my autobiography.
