Welcome to Snap Sessions!, a podcast that looks at artists and their creative pursuits from Northern California to Europe and beyond, as well as investigating provocative articles and broadcasts across the political spectrum. On a daily basis we are overwhelmed by a variety of writings and programs in a dizzying array of venues. And scores of creative people respond in a multiplicity of imaginative genres. Snap Sessions! talks to contemporary artists about their creative ventures, and digests political articles that we miss.
Hosted by Doug Nunn, longtime performer, writer, and educator, Snap Sessions! visits creative people in their studios and workshops and asks them about their artistic lives, work, and opinions. Combined with these interviews are explorations of various important articles and programs in the news and across publications in the last few months. Snap Sessions! takes a critical and sardonic look at the present-day world of art and politics.
Snap Sessions! will aim to produce two shows a month, with interviews conducted and articles perused by Doug Nunn, and tech and sound engineering provided by Marshall Brown. Voiceover artists include Ken Krauss, Christine Samas and Steve Weingarten. We will interview artists from Northern California to Germany, France, Britain and beyond. Our aim is to give you a local and international perspective on the arts and a critical look at world politics. Our goals are to salute the power of creativity and to foster international understanding & solidarity.
