Five Artists who inspire Holy Holy’s Timothy Carroll.

The spoken word: The Memory Palace ( Podcast)
Nate DiMeo’s ‘The Memory Palace’ is an incredible example of what radio and podcasting can be. This is a one-man cinematic time machine. You can be listening to this standing at your kitchen sink, and suddenly you will be standing in a bamboo forest in central china in 1845. It’s incredible.

He was one of the first writers ever to make me cry and laugh out loud in a novel.

If you ever visit a gallery with one of his works definitely take some time to view it.
