Joan of Art is Joan Juliet Buck’s new Radio Free Rhinecliff podcast devoted to human expression in the age of tentpoles and bots, at the dawn of AI. It's about culture in all its forms. Joan of Art is a weapon in the fight against the machines Joan of Art is the flag waving over the battlefield where institutional interests try to crush the people who make what’s called either 'Product" , or 'Content'. Product? Content? No: Art. Movies. Books. Plays. Exhibitions. Poems. Murals. Museums. Streamers. Essays. Concepts. Joan Of Art is reviews --but also interviews with people who write, think, paint, direct, dance, perform, who use the arts to enhance, elevate, and question our lives. It's not a show about solutions, it's a show about questions. As a critic, Joan Juliet Buck crisply and coherently shares her enthusiasms. Today there's more at stake than when she wrote for the classic primary pollinators of culture, the arts pages, features sections, and magazines. Today, the newsstands are closed, many of the magazines have become the living dead. What's left, on paper : Harper's , The Atlantic, New York Magazine, The New Yorker. The LRB. Guardian weekly. Online: Flying headlines. Trending information. Aggregated opinions. Rotten slimy tomatoes. Joan Of Art is a guide through what’s out there. It will feed your soul, and provide the jolt of insights with the thrill of the new.
