I often listen to podcasts while I travel from A to B and this week brought a real treat from Alec Baldwin's podcast Here's The Thing. His interview with Patti Smith is just wonderful. They talk about her history, from childhood and a pure desire to do something creative, to her extraordinary relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe. I loved how she described meeting her future husband, Fred Smith, as being "like a song" and how her passion for art and music runs so deeply in her. So inspiring. You can listen to the podcast here.
