The Artists of Hill House is a bi-weekly podcast featuring discussions with the recipients of the Crosshatch Center for Art & Ecology's Artist Residency Program. The podcast will present interviews with current and past resident artists, and highlight some of their work. The podcast will also provide news and updates on the alumni, previews of their new works and information on the artists' upcoming events.


Episode 1 of Artists of Hill House.


Podcast Format

•Each episode will begin with an interview of a resident that highlights their work. Artists are encouraged to share examples of what they are working on with our audience. These samples may be recorded live during the interview or provided later by the artist(s) for inclusion in the segment. 

•The middle section will highlight a Hill House alum and follow the same trajectory as the opening segment.

•The podcast will conclude with alumni news, such as awards and reviews, and will also provide notices for upcoming events, such as openings, performances and new releases––basically anything that the artists wish to share. 

•All participation by the artists is voluntary.


Podcast distribution

•The podcast will be available on SoundCloud, PRX, embedded on my website and possibly Crosshatch’s site, and promoted on social media. I will also produce short, interstitial teasers to maintain distribution continuity during off-weeks.

•Everyone will be encouraged to download, link to, embed and share the podcast and collateral content with their friends, fans, critics, agents, the press and others. The use of permalinks will make it easy for the artists to include interviews and web extras in their Electronic Press Kits.

•I am going to produce tighter versions of the podcast segments to pitch to local NPR stations and upload to PRX, and I will also produce quirky sonic IDs to give to the local NPR stations to increase the chances of getting the artists on the air.

web extras

•All accompanying web extras, excluding extended interviews, will be presented subject to the permission of the artists.

•Each podcast episode will be embedded on my site and will be accompanied by photos and other appropriate media, such as extended interview segments and samples of and/or links to the artists' work discussed in the interview. 

•The collateral for each episode will also include clear links to the artists’ websites and other information that is presented in the closing segment of the show, such as tour and release dates, upcoming events and reviews, and previews of new or upcoming releases.
