Hey kids, Daddy’s back in the hot seat this week (Rob insists that we call him that), returned from his polar adventures and ready to take you on an art and design voyage like you’ve never experienced before – unless you’ve listened to the podcast before, in which case you’re probably quite familiar with the format.

In the first section we discussed Rick Owens’ latest show at London Fashion Week and wondered whether it was as ground-breaking as people had hoped, took a closer look at Thomas Cook’s new in-house designed logo and introduced the work of Phil Toledano whose practice explores censorship in the Arab world.
Section two saw us looking at Sarah Lucas’ body parts after a visit to her new show at The Whitechapel Gallery and mourning the loss of Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad, a show that’s captured the world’s interest like no other.
