Q & A with Jessica from Top Artist Podcast
When did you start podcasting?
After quite a lot of research to make sure we got the setup right, we interviewed our first guests in August 2020.
In October 2020, the first episodes of Top Artist were released.
Why did you start podcasting?
Top Artist is part of My Modern Met, a popular arts and culture website.
We really wanted to be able to tell the stories of our favorite artists in an in-depth way and podcasting felt like the perfect vehicle to do so.
What’s the name of your show and what is it about?
The My Modern Met Top Artist podcast is a bi-weekly show with a rotating roster of hosts, who are all writers for My Modern Met and passionate about art.
Each episode we sit down with a top creative and spend about 30 minutes picking their brain about their early career, creative process, and some of their most memorable projects.
We’ve interviewed everyone from legendary photojournalist Steve McCurry to Iris Scott, who has a successful career as a finger painter and Jason deCaires Taylor, who builds vast underwater museums.
What’s your podcasting set-up?
I’m using an Audio Technica ATR2100 microphone and Audio Technica ATH M30X headphones.
All of our interviews are recorded using Squadcast and we record any additional audio using either Audacity or Adobe Audition. To make the editing process easier, we upload our files into Otter.ai and annotate the transcript for our editor. To create social media and promotional materials we use Canva, Headliner, and Adobe Premier.
Every episode has its own article feature on My Modern Met, but we also have a specific Instagram and Facebook for the podcast.
The podcast also has its own website where people can sign up for a newsletter and receive information about new releases. We’re now expanding out into doing collaborations with other like-minded podcasts to help build our audience.

My Modern Met discovered that they could highlight featured artists and allow their audience to hear their true voice with a podcast, so they created Top Artist. Their contributing writers sit down and have one on ones with the creative community. Does your company have more to say, is there some insights that don’t come across with just the written word. Start a podcast it can be shared with just your company or publicly. We can help you get started!
