Bridget Riley Podcast Episode

That Art Podcast

A couple years ago I started a podcast. It was about as frequent as this blog, but that was before I found a new app and Smart But Scattered’s Guide To Success which teaches people how to improve their executive functions, like procrastination. So let’s see how it goes.

The first few episodes were pretty risqué, so if you don’t like swearing and/or you’ve only just met me recently, do us both a favor and do not listen. Why do that to yourself? (I had undiagnosed sensory processing disorder and it turns out, swearing is an awesome stim when you’re overloaded all the time. Much to my beloved Uncle’s dismay.)

The new and improved podcast is just getting started, but oh man, what a start.

The source links are at the bottom, so let’s get to the paintings.

I’m going to start you off *channels Ms. Tina Turner* nice. And easy.

Now, we’re gonna do it nice…..And rough.

Seriously, if you get motion sickness or have any other issues with crazy optical illusions that may make you miserable, stop now. It’s only going to get worse from here.
