A podcast about creativity – what motivates us to make things, how to make space in our lives for creative adventures, and how to have more fun with it all. Hosted by Kim Werker, author of Make It Mighty Ugly and host of the Online Community of Creative Adventurers.
Music & Crafts
As I begin fiddle lessons (!), I see so many connections between my desire to learn folk music and my fascination with handcrafts.
I Had 7 Minutes
I had seven minutes of relative quiet for recording, and I tried to make the most of it. Featuring: me, playing the violin, very badly. (And some crochet for challenging times.)
Serenade & Feminist Rage
Wherein I learn to play Happy Birthday on the ukulele for a tuba duet and rekindle my commitment to dismantle the patriarchy. There's... no good description for this one. You're gonna have to hear it for yourself.
Tiny Creative Joys
We're gonna be in this for a long while, dear listeners. We'll be experiencing waves of grief over a long time. So it's time to focus on tiny joys, and on how our creativity can help us create some of those joys for ourselves. Plus: Be a part of next week's call-in show!
Time Is Warped
When time is all screwed up, and when we may feel inclined to think we have way more of it on our hands than we actually do, does the challenge of fitting in creative projects go away? It sure doesn't. Have a listen.
Dispatch from Quarantine
We're nine days into self-quarantine because the last person we saw before going into self-isolation last week called a few days later to tell us he'd been exposed. In many ways, this isn't any different an experience than what we'd been expecting, except we can't go shopping for groceries and the like. Which, at this point, actually seems like a massive difference. My kingdom for a change of scenery beyond what we get walking the dog.
