Stephen Christian, former frontman of the now-defunct Anberlin, has launched his own podcast, called The Art Collective, through the Jabberjaw network. Christian's main objective, according to the podcast's homepage, is to interview “musicians and authors to explore how the two worlds influence each other and our culture as a whole.” Having just kicked off recently, there is a brief introductory track available along with the podcast's first episode, featuring musician John Mark McMillan. You can listen to both below and check out The Art Collective's website here.

“Here I am, attempting to dive into other people, learn about myself, learn about the creative process, learn about inspiration, and this is what I came up with,” Christian explains. “I'm so excited. It's something I've wanted to do for a very long time now, something that's been slowly in the works, but it's here.”
