Superior podcast for artists
Thank you for all of your amazing podcasts. You always seem to know the right questions to ask you guests! I enjoy every moment of listening and learn a lot. Thank you!
The Left Brain Artist
This podcast never fails to inspire. The artists that Suzanne interviews are interesting and diverse. There is always a wealth of inspiration here! Thanks Suzanne!
So Left-Brained! I love it.
Suzanne’s podcast combines interesting and in-depth interviews with a logical and sequential follow-up podcast. Many of her topics are exactly what I need without even knowing it. Some are things that I’ve thought about, but I haven’t really taken the time to consider and then investigate and make action plans. I appreciate her ‘take aways’ at the end which help me do just that. Thanks for helping me develop my left brain!
