    Deep Natter 58: Discovering All the Time

    In this episode, Sean gives me some valuable advice for starting my own YouTube channel, which leads into a terrific discussion around the importance of identifying what motivates us to make. Plus, we gush a little about Justin Hawkins.

    Deep Natter 57: Sometimes You Just Know

    Deep Natter 57: Sometimes You Just Know

    In this episode, Friend of the Show Maarten Rots joins me from his mobile studio in the Netherlands to talk about how a space can have an affect on what kind of work we produce in it. We also talk about the difficulty in breaking out of creative habits and the challenge of when to take our work in a different direction.

    Iteration 70: The Medium is Irrelevant

    Iteration 70: The Medium is Irrelevant

    The other day, a friend of mine texted me a link to a podcast, along with a single sentence that read, “If I could be a small fraction of the photographer Sally Mann is, it would really be something.” Now, this friend is a terrific photographer but, like so many of us, he sometimes gets stuck in the rut of comparison. I get it. I really do. Sally Mann is an iconic photographer, but one of the most challenging—and I think harmful—things we can do to ourselves as artists is to unreasonably compare ourselves and our work to others.

    Question:
    Do you compare yourself or your work to others? If so, how does it affect the work you make?

    The Paris Review recently posted (or, maybe re-posted) a fantastic interview with the great James Baldwin. In it, he talks about what inspired him to became a writer, why he left America for Paris, and some of his inspirations. If you aren’t familiar with James Baldwin, I recommend his novel The Fire Next Time or I Am Not Your Negro, which is a documentary based on his unfinished novel, Remember This House.

    Deep Natter 56: A Collaboration with Technology

    Deep Natter 56: A Collaboration with Technology

    In this episode, Sean and I are talking about how some of the evolutions in technology will impact the way we make art and, in some cases, blur the line of creativity between humans and machines. We also trade links to some of the things each of us has found interesting over the past week or so.

    Deep Natter 55: Go with the Questions

    Deep Natter 55: Go with the Questions

    In this episode, Sean and I have an honest and, at times, revealing discussion around how comparing our work to others can often lead to creative paralysis. We also talk about the importance of finding an accountability buddy who can give us the support and feedback we need—whether it’s positive or negative—that can really help us move forward.

    Deep Natter 54: You Only Have the Journey

    Deep Natter 54: You Only Have the Journey

    We’re a little all over the place in this episode, from Kate Bush and Stranger Things to Top Gun: Maverick, to the importance of the creative journey and how sharing the what and the how often yields greater fruit than simply playing our processes close to the vest.

Creative content ,

essential listening for anyone interested in making

I’ve said it elsewhere, but this is hands down the most important podcast I listen to. All of Jeffery’s work is excellent, heartfelt, and honest and the Deep Natter conversations with Sean Tucker aren’t to be missed. I play them when I’m out searching for pictures to take for a photo book I’m working on. Their conversations put me in the right headspace, are upbeat and positive, but cut through to the essentials of living a creative life. It’s like having two sincere friends encourage you every step of the way. Not sure I can say thanks enough.

Sir John Horginton Maller ,

Hmmm

Granted they have the right to talk about whatever they want to discuss, I used to love when this podcast was focused on creativity and not politics. I find myself less and less interested, but this is just my opinion.

SherriSM ,

Jeffery Saddoris is...

...one of the best interviewers I've listened to! With him, interviewing/podcasting about art and creativity becomes an art all of it's own.
