Creatives always seem to get a bad rap. They’re too strange, too unconventional, too sensitive, too fickle, too disorganized, too... misunderstood?
Join hosts Kate and Jess each week to explore the stories behind famous (and not-so-famous) creatives that have somehow changed the course of history. From globally renowned artists to unfamiliar risk-takers, our hosts will cover these fascinating stories to figure out — are creatives really the worst?
RuPaul Andre Charles was born in San Diego, California, before moving to Atlanta, Georgia at the age of 15 to study in the performing arts.
After contributing to several smaller creative projects over the years, he finally broke through to the mainstream with the dance hit “Supermodel (You Better Work)” in 1993.
RuPaul would go on to become the most famous drag queen in the world, an Emmy award-winning host of multiple hit television shows, and a bonafide household name.
This week, we’re asking the question: Is RuPaul the worst?
Fleetwood Mac was formed in London in 1967; the brainchild of guitarist Peter Green and drummer Mick Fleetwood.
They would record several albums and endure countless personnel changes before guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and singer Stevie Nicks would eventually join in 1974.
This lineup would lead the band to worldwide success and widespread acclaim, but their creative environment was anything but healthy. Addiction, drama, infidelity, and “rumours” seemed to follow them wherever they went.

“Who you gonna call?”
In 1984, a Hollywood studio took a massive risk, spending millions of dollars on an ambitious science-fiction comedy film.
Ghostbusters was the brainchild of Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, who starred in the film alongside SNL alumni Bill Murray.

The result was unlike any comedy created before or since and is widely considered to be one of the greatest films of all time.
