A Must Try!
Stumbled upon this podcast, and honestly have been underwhelmed with industry-isn type podcasts that seem to fumble around and never truly have engaging content… Pleasantly surprised with Go Creative!
Binge-listened to 3 episodes the night I discovered it. Thank you Ben for all your work!
