    Jest: Humour in storytelling

    Jest: Humour in storytelling

    This week we’re talking about humour in business and storytelling while also trying out our own stories inspired by the word “Jest”. What role does humour play in professional relationships? Why is it worth including some in your professional interactions and how might you go about doing that?

    Vishal and Katie talk improv, stand-up comedy, and just generally having a go at taking live a little less seriously.

    Dealing with frustration in a creative process

    While dealing with a big creative frustration of our own, we thought we’d talk about frustration and the creative process. It’s inevitable that we become frustrated at some point in a creative process. So, why do we need it? How can we deal with it? And how does it help us to develop new and better ideas?

    In this episode, Katie Annice Carr discusses her personal experience with frustration in creative processes and how she has learnt to deal with it, as well as sharing some insights from others.
