Engaging, positive and encouraging

There are many podcasts out there, most with a hint of elitism, a heavy dose of it’s all a mystery and isn’t this the hardest life ever. I find Erika’s podcast so refreshing, aimed at all the makers, and encouragingly delivering the message to just be you at whatever stage of the game you are at. Bravo! I’m officially hooked.

Best Podcast

I am a young woman just starting my career in the arts. Came across this podcast at the perfect moment in my life. It’s so empowering to feel connected with a community of artists who share their own struggles, successes and advice. Thank you, Erica, for doing this. You’ve given me confidence to keep at it!
