I absolutely adore this podcast. I first started listening to it years ago to give myself a break from the true crime podcasts that got me into podcasts in the first place. Ben’s easy interviewing style, along with the variety of guests drew me in and inspired me to seek out ceramics classes for...Read full review »

this is still without a doubt my favorite time, when i actually have the free time in my car and my mind is not swamped with errands, i can sit and listen to a great conversation. Most of the time it makes me laugh, and all the time it makes me think. as always, thanks Ben.
MacPottery via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/16/20
Thank you for creating such an insightful podcast! Ben asks the best questions, allows the potter or guest to answer, no matter how long it takes. And he usually asks the question that I would too. My favorite part (that happens almost every show) is when there is a “heavy” discussion and the...Read full review »

Love listening to this show. A fascinating and wide ranging podcast about all things ceramic. Have learnt such a lot. Ben is a great interviewer.
Sucada via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/08/18
I listened to the podcast about Pewabic Pottery and loved it! Like all TRCR podcasts, I learned a great deal. I'm a collector, not an artist, and your podcasts increase my knowledge of the history of ceramics, various techniques, and artists themselves. Thanks so much!Read full review »

Listening to the show has become an addiction. I am a high school ceramics and sculpture teacher in Tampa Fl. Listening to artist talk about their work and practice is insightful in to my practices . It’s the ultimate fly on the wall experience!
drscrs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/17
Thanks Ben for a kaleidoscope of ceramic perspective. I feel my studio is at the nexus of academia and studio experience. I have been planning my exit from the tech world for a decade and just about to launch out into the wilderness of ceramics. I have left my tech tools in favor of mud. Your...Read full review »

CV Potter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/21/17
I have no idea how I stumbled on your podcast. Probably from one of those artsy magazines/newspapers in Santa Cruz. I tuned in and really liked the story of the female artist/potter from Australia you were interviewing. I found out you had moved to California from Georgia and I felt an instant...Read full review »

I'm so glad this podcast exists! I've listened to all of them, mostly in the summer during my hour-long walks to and from the studio. It's a teaching tool and personal inspiration but primarily an insightful connection to the community. Thanks Ben Carter and interviewees.Read full review »

Ben does a great job interview different ceramicists and artists. I listen to The Tales of a Red Clay Rambler frequently in the studio, on long car rides, and walks with our dogs. I always learn something new and am never dissapointed. They are conversational, personal, and ever insightful!

Thoughtful, insightful, well-researched and down to earth conversations with a diverse range of artists. Ben Carter is serving and documenting the ceramic field with generosity and sincerity.

Ben has this way with his questions that he asks his guests throughout interviews that so often leave me pondering for hours after I listen to each episode.
