Here we are: 100 episodes, and we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you listening to our conversations and interviews. When we started this over two years ago, we didn’t actually know how far this would go or even if anyone would even listen. To our surprise, we are still here and y’all are still listening. So, thank you! You’ve been a great audience, and we are honored to provide new content for you each week. Here’s to another 100 episodes!
This week Ryan and Garreth are joined in the studio by painters Ian C. Hess and Miguel Carter-Fisher to talk about the suffering artist. We have all heard about it, and many of us have deep experiences in this area, but what we experience and what is culturally understood may be different things. Do we have to suffer? Is there something positive about suffering? There’s a lot to talk about, so much so that we had to bring in two more folks just to plot out the field.
