Happy Little Podcast

One of the most recognizable programs PBS has ever broadcasted is The Joy Of Painting With Bob Ross. Although the man known for his “happy little trees” passed away in 1995, his how-to show continues in reruns and his gentle style of artistic instruction has reached the type of pop culture saturation normally reserved for reality TV stars and failed politicians.

And now PBS is bringing Bob Ross to a new generation with the Bob Ross Podcast!

Starting today, April 1st, PBS will be presenting all 403 episodes of the classic series The Joy Of Painting With Bob Ross as a podcast (one episode per week) to enchant an all-new audience of millennials. Each podcast is taken from the master tapes of the original series and presented exactly as shown on PBS. Plus, all the audio has been digitally remastered to enhance every brush struck.
