Art in Liverpool podcast 17 February 2010

This week we bring you Shops Up Front, The Liverpool Map plus the Philosophy of Fidgets.

I am getting into the habit - good or bad of posting the Art in Liverpool podcast to posterous just to spread the word so to speak. It then sends it on to my blogger site which is sorely neglected for content these days. I seem to have fallen right out of the habit of posting to it. But there again do expect to have a great deal of time in the future where i will be able to post to it once more - although trying to distinguish between what content i should post where is getting harder and harder.  So maybe i should just post and be damned.    

Any way I hope you enjoy this weeks art in Liverpool Podcast
