Hey pod fans! Nice to see you again, please accept this latest offering of Studio Audience with our compliments. Your spotter’s card for this episode includes the phrase “sibling-cum-romance vibe,” an unsubtle call for cake and Liv Siddall interjecting weirdly. Oh yeah and more art and design chat that you can waggle a stick at. Not sure why you’d want to do that though.

In the first section we talked about last week’s Frieze art fair and questioned whether some of the stick the event gets is fair; we also discussed The Design Museum’s programme for next year and Morrissey’s autobiography being published in the hallowed Penguin Classics series which has upset some people.
As three Calvin & Hobbes devotees we welcomed the news that Bill Watterson had given an extremely rare interview to Mental Floss magazine and we asked whether creatives are within their rights to let their work speak for them.
