These podcasts wear thin fast. If you have no background in the subject (which is fine, most people wouldn't) then you'll get some interesting, basic perspectives -- the same stuff everyone reads in basic textbooks. But while the chatters have plenty of personal opinions (not art...Read full review »

These ladies are great - intelligent, fun, accessible, well researched… I’m ‘in the field’ (but not an art historian) & have a BA in fine art… we’ll done ladies, or as we say here in Italy ‘complimenti’!

I personally love this podcast. It’s like talking shop with my fellow art history nerds over a glass(es) of wine on a Friday night and I’m here for it. I want to be your friends so badly. You guys make me laugh and I love the community you create. I really thought your most recent episode was not...Read full review »

To all those saying they should be less giggly and focus on the art….. you’re terribly wrong! Art history is SO interesting yet it is often taught in such a flat and mundane way. I loved this. My first one was the one about architecture with le Corbu ironically 😂

I want to love this podcast so bad but there’s so much talking about non art content and way too much giggling. Please please become more serious and deliver the fastening podcast we long for. Thank you.

Looking forward to more trips. I won’t be able to go on this one but hope it goes well so there will be more! I really enjoy your podcast and have been listening for years. I think the podcast is still true to it’s original state which I appreciate. It’s informative but not exhausting to listen to.

I wanted to listen to a structured podcast on art history, not “babes” talk about watching cat videos with their boyfriend or whatever other boring garbage these people consider necessary banter
Tate Causea via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/30/21
These ladies are exceptional in and out of classes! I cannot recommend them enough. I stumbled upon their podcast a few years ago and I have been a dedicated listener ever since. They make art history even more fun and engaging. I am so happy to keep on listening to them after graduation....Read full review »

As an Art History teacher for high schoolers, it’s great when I can find art history resources/media that aren’t super dry and overly academic. The AHBs are a fun mix of historical info and regular social conversation. It’s enjoyable to listen to and keeps me fresh as an educator. Love it!
TiredArtTeacherMom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/01/21
These baddies got me interested in art history, which says a lot because I’m not interested in anything! 😁🙏
Mischa_12 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/17/21
I’ve been a listener for a while now. These women are extremely informative on the topics they discuss, and listening to them talk is like hanging out with good friends talking about art, which is awesome. This podcast not only covers all the art I’m interested in, it also provides a feeling of...Read full review »

Smart minds Let’s thank stellar topics Not even pop or trendy I can’t believe you’re afraid of the deep end Take a crack at a tough topic you can really wrap those brains around. Art in the city?! Really. That’s all you’re going to do. It’s Art not soft porn. Good luck. I’ll listen again.
mac the light via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/21
So excited that the AHB are doing an AP Art History series with the BB episodes! I’m a high school teacher currently teaching that class and I can’t wait to incorporate the episodes into my classroom this coming school year! For those who read the reviews- I really enjoy that way this podcast...Read full review »

I love this podcast and I think the subjects are always interesting and well researched. The discussions and the hosts perspectives are genuinely thought provoking. These women deserve a lot more respect than reviews bashing their intellectual content based on their voices and giggling. The...Read full review »
ghostofbabu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/23/21
Some episodes are really good. It took me a couple of episodes to get used to the banter. These women really know their stuff and make it entertaining, but a little too much extra lately. The color theory episodes are gold! Let’s get back to basics, drunk art history is fun, as long as it’s art...Read full review »
TominLouisville via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/21
Love the art info. The banter is fun and while sometimes I wish for a teensy bit deeper dive into the history, the truth is I’d get bored quickly if this was a straight info podcast. The warmth between you all is infectious.
Awsome face 1254 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/21
I will start by saying this is not the show for me. I recently have gotten back into art history. I listened to a handful of episodes, I thought they were well researched and gave enough info for me to walk away understanding the history of the artist. I thought they had some good ‘editorial’...Read full review »
lzzrdpnappl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/25/21
I would want to listen to their knowledge on Art History, but their recent episodes are mostly about their life experience (nothing to do with art), what their doing in the weekends, and what they plan to do. This is far from an art history podcast and something across the lines of a chatting and...Read full review »
nikki34&6 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/06/21
I love this podcast. I get to learn of the art world, history and other topics through fun conversations of these bright ladies. Recommended. I especially enjoyed the older episodes, so it is worth going back to their first years and listen all the way to now.
soldemaryvolkan via Apple Podcasts · Ecuador · 04/04/21
Just feel like there could be a lot more editing out the side chatter. A lot of times when historical blurbs are actually read, they sound bored and have major vocal fry. Also, it’s cool to admit you don’t know something but this is a podcast- look it up and answer it for your listeners. That’s...Read full review »
>kat.Lea< via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/21
Been a long time listener but recently the quality and professionalism has dropped. Inside jokes are not funny to anyone but the hosts. The tangents are getting ridiculous and I end up skipping the majority of the episode just to listen to the scattered bits of actual information.
Botticelli’s babe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/14/21
These women have a lot of knowledge and insight but it was hard listening to all of them together. I get the idea of the casual conversation among friends approach but it ends up being somewhat annoying as others have mentioned. A little too casual for my tastes.
alamobob via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/10/21
Just talk about art history and comment on that historical time.
s-corleone via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/07/21
Love you guys.. you make my commute interesting and entertaining
Kriskriskriskris55677777 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/28/21
To much chit chat. Voices are sharp and hard to listen too.

I've listened to the magnificent ladies for years, andd I just finished my straight chronological run through of all of their episodes. Thanks for helping me brush up on my art history knowledge, and thanks for helping me get through the nightmare that was 2020!Read full review »

This podcast reminds me of the first Art History class that I took in college - my teacher was the bomb! I love listening to The Babes, and I can’t believe that I just discovered them! Big fan here in Spring Hill, TN
Little Miss Sweet Tea via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/24/20
I like these knowledgeable ladies! Learning a lot of new info and I they’re funny too. Thanks Babes!
tiruwalla via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/15/20
Too much “babes” and not enough art history.
Milgo Vonne Fraun via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/20
Too much giggling and inane banter, very little useful information.
LCDR Philanderer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/20
I really love this podcast and missed it while you were in hiatus completing your book. I know there were some episodes, but I miss the ones with all four of you. The recent one in the color yellow was wonderful! Unlike some others writing in, I enjoy your lighthearted banter along with your...Read full review »

These babes are my favorite! I’m a middle school art teacher who is obsessed with art history. I have heard of the art history babes before, and when we went into quarantine in the spring, I started listening to the AHB on my long walks with my dogs. I love the history and the funny moments. Wish...Read full review »

I love the show
ian_painting via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/29/20
I have an art degree but these ladies are always turning up new information and artists that I’ve missed or forgotten. Honestly the balance of the show really works for me, super dry history podcasts alway lose me- but they strike a really great balance of goofing off and solid info. Love it!
lindseysigmon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/25/20
These ladies make you feel a part of their group and you learn while having so much fun! They are real, down to earth ladies sharing their passion and knowledge. They make art history relatable and cool. Highly recommend a listen.
KaitHeck via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/20
These girls feel like friends. Been listening since the beginning, stumbled across them one night and have never looked back. I want to hang out and drink wine and talk about art and stuff with these lovelies. Give them a listen to learn, laugh and feel like you’re in a convo with your oldest...Read full review »

While the art-focused content and commentary is fascinating, I unfortunately have to agree with other similar reviewers that the hosts’ exchanges and mannerisms detract from the listening experience. There are nearly twenty minute long conversations about frivolous topics that don’t pertain to...Read full review »

It’s a fun way to learn about Art History!
Gern70Blanston via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/20
I forced my self to listen to 3 episodes, which I’m not going to lie, they do have kind of interesting content. However, when they would comment on the topic, I couldn't help to find my self a bit annoyed. They could do so much better, their comments do sound like that of a tipsy 17 year...Read full review »
nena de montreal via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/29/20
I miss them dearly between episodes. The discussions about art are enriching and so much fun, you feel you’re spending time with your own drunkish friends... I can’t go without them when I’m working from home. The art club I wish I had around the corner! Thank you babes!
sdecangas via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 08/27/20
I wanted to like this podcast. I like most art podcasts, from beginner artist to E-Flux, I devour it all in the background at the studio, but this show is the worst. The tone is too snarky for me. they seem to play to type, matching the stereotype of an art history major, without the...Read full review »
Bushwickbeergarden via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/19/20
It feels like I’m chitchatting with my friends but learning so much. I hate that I haven’t heard from these girls earlier! I loved the content and the format of the podcast❤️ It helps a lot as I am in art school... Sending much love
amanda21401 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/12/20
Enjoy the friendly chatty tone of this podcast. Playful but serious at times, not afraid to bring awareness to social injustice. As an artist it makes art history relatable. Great to get access to some in depth explorations on feminist art/artists- more of that please...
Vcat2 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/05/20
Wow, was I looking forward to these. Wow, was I disappointed. I tried three different episodes; I felt like I was accidentally trapped in a toilet cubicle with four tipsy, immature fourteen-year-olds (sorry, fourteen-year-olds) giggling on the other side; highly amused by each other, and using...Read full review »

I heard about the Art History Babes on another podcast. The promo was intriguing so I decided to give it listen. The promo did not do them justice. The Art History Babes are so much better. The podcast is entertaining, educational and just fun to listen to. I definitely recommend this to...Read full review »

I found this podcast at the beginning of the quarantine, and the art history babes ended up being the best company for these times. In the midst of this pandemic, where you can't hang out with your friends, listening to them feels like I'm drinking wine with my girlfriends. It is fun, but...Read full review »

I absolutely love this podcast. It makes art history so accessible and enjoyable for everyone which can usually a bit of barrier when viewing historical art.
