New Year, new episode of our Studio Audience podcast and we’ve played around with the format a bit so much did we enjoy the multi-voice approach of our festive free-for-all. So join no fewer than four members of the It’s Nice That team as we digest and discuss some big stories from the art and design realm which caught our eye this week.

After the usual introductory chit-chat we got down to talking about the rise and rise of Snapchat and the strange tale of their recent dealings with Facebook as played out in the pages of Forbes magazine. Then it was straight onto the stunning new Hieronymous Bosch book from Taschen, before a jingle, and then attention turned to Tom Eckersley and how important it is for creatives to appreciate the history of their discipline. Finally Maisie Skidmore talked us through some of the highlights of London Collections: Men and its increasing;y significant place in the sartorial calendar.
