About

 
 

Truer Words is a podcast about the work of making art. It’s created and produced by Melissa and Kathryn, two friends who care deeply about feminism, classic teen movies of the ‘90s, and #virgoproblems. Each episode, we’ll talk to artists about their inspirations, creative routines, and, above all, their day to day hustle.

You can subscribe to Truer Words on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, and Stitcher, and follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
