Art and pop culture aficionados may want to check out Art Matters, a podcast that "explores the interesting ways art meets popular culture and non-traditional art topics." This biweekly podcast is hosted by art historian Ferren Gipson and has two seasons available at the time of this writing. Frequently engaging with important contemporary themes such as inclusivity, Art Matters regularly features guests from a variety of art history fields. Recent episodes include discussions about art and visual culture in scientific spaces (featuring Katy Barrett, Curator of Art Collections at the Science Museum, London), artistic influences in RuPaul's Drag Race (featuring Corrie and Natalie from the podcast Art History Babes), and twentieth-century art references in The Simpsons (featuring Todd VanDerWerff, Critic at Large for Vox). Each approximate half-hour episode is accompanied on its page by numerous images, a written article, and links to additional resources. Art Matters is produced by Art UK, a nonprofit organization focused on showcasing the UK's public art collections to the world. Those interested may download episodes and subscribe via iTunes, Stitcher, and other platforms.
