Episode 6 – Van Gogh’s Brother Tito

July 24, 2017



The friends delve into Heather Rose’s Museum of Modern Love. Ez reflects on the triumph and tribulation of walking the Great Wall of China for love, and discussion moves on to the value of art in a world often driven by consumerism. Iz has been reading The Barefoot Investor so there’s a smattering of money-talk, but fear not, the friends quickly return to art, the brilliance of Van Gogh, and whether his brother’s name was Tito or Titho (*it’s neither). Between fits of laughter and hilarity, Iz and Ez bring you episode six of their “not-so cutting edge” podcast.
