Excellent show about creative powerhouses

10,000 Hours does a fantastic job of showcasing creative leaders and diving deep into issues that affect us all as makers and creators. Awesome job, Grant and Vince!

So much potential

The idea and format of this show is almost exactly what I want as a creative and graphic designer. But honestly, it is super frustrating how the hosts constantly talk over the guests. I appreciate their insight but I’m here for the wisdom of the people being interviewed. I thought that if I came back after a few months they would be a little more considerate of their guests and their listeners but I was wrong. I guess I will check back later. Seriously guys, just chill out a bit.

I. Can’t. Stop. Listening.

Grant and Vince are so knowledgable and interesting. I love the Minneapolis creative scene, and it’s great to listen to two people who are so ingrained. Top notch guests, topics, and segues. You guys are awesome. Keep it up.
