For the last year, auctioneer and appraiser Martin Willis and co-host
Phyllis Kao have reported on nearly every facet of the antiques hobby through their independent Website AntiqueAuctionPodcast.com. Across 25 different segments, the two record and broadcast live interviews with notable personalities, dealers and artists on topics ranging from $1 million comic books to what it’s like to be a real-life American picker.
Guests range from silver expert William Whetstone and company, authors of the book World Hallmarks, Vo. I to Reyne Haines, author of the book Vintage Wristwatches to artists Mark Stock and Mark McNair.
Willis has more than 35 years of experience in the auction business
working in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Colorado and California, who’s handled tens of thousands of antiques, collectibles and
fine art pieces. Kao is a classical violinist and scholar who has recently returned to her antique roots by immersing herself in antique auctions, specializing in silver flatware and silver hollowware.
