A brilliant podcast for creatives

I started listening to this podcast a few months ago, and I’ve found every episode interesting, inspiring and full of great advice for creatives. It’s a joy to listen to interviews with a varied ranges of guests, and there always be something I can relate to. I’d recommend this podcast to anyone who is trying to get their work/ life balance right, and also likes hearing positive/ driven/ confident people talk about what they love to do!

Stop interrupting

I wanted to love this podcast. The guests are all great and I’m interested to hear their stories, which is why it’s such a shame that Lizzie always diverts the conversation back to herself. It would be great if she could take a step back and do more asking and listening rather than making it all about herself. The episode with Kristabel was particularly hard for me to listen to, Lizzie constantly interrupts. I also find it very off putting that there always seems to be eating cake or something which isn’t nice to hear in the background.
Sorry, I don’t want to sound like a troll, I love the music, it’s well put together and the guests are all very relevant. Interrupting the guest constantly just feels very rude and it’s awkward to listen to.

Love this podcast

I absolutely love this podcast series, really enjoy hearing how other creatives have approached and navigate through their careers. Especially loved the Lola Hoad episode in season 2.
