Material Feels is a podcast that explores the intimate relationships between people, their creative practices and the materials they have fallen in love with. Each episode focuses on a maker and their material of choice. Producer and host Catherine Monahon spends quality time with each guest, explores the history and cultural context of the particular material and shares personal asides here and there. A theater kid, art educator and psychology nerd, Monahon crafts a show that is educational, inquisitive and expressive.
