The Arts Now Podcast #1

Welcome to first episode of The Arts Now Podcast, a show about the Toronto arts scene. The podcast's hosts are myself, Ella Cooper, and Amil Niazi.

Each week we'll be talking about what's happening in the arts around town, interviewing local artists and reporting back on events we went to during the past week. We'll also be giving our picks for what's worth checking out during the week to come.
