    To our PFC community,
    As we sit here reflecting on the journey, we’re overwhelmed with gratitude and emotion. Today marks the release of our final PFC episode, and we wanted to take a moment to express our thanks to each and every one of you.
    From the very beginning, your support has been the heartbeat of this podcast. Your enthusiasm, feedback, and dedication have fueled our passion to create content that we hope has resonated with you on a profound level.
    It's been an incredible ride filled with laughter, learning, and moments of genuine connection. Together, we've explored topics both heartfelt and lighthearted, delving into the depths of the creative experience and sharing stories that have touched our hearts.
    Your engagement, whether through messages, reviews, or sharing episodes with friends, has meant more to us than words can express. Knowing that our conversations have sparked dialogue, inspired change, or simply brought a smile to your face has been the ultimate reward.
    It’s just time. We’ve grown, both personally and professionally, and we’re in very different places than we were six years ago when we launched PFC. 100 episodes felt like the appropriate time to step away.
    While this chapter may be coming to a close, it’s not the end of our partnership. 20 years of friendship and we’re just getting started. We are working on a new project that we’re really excited about and will be sharing news of it with you soon. We think you’ll like it.
    As we bid farewell to PFC, thank you for being a part of our community. Your presence has truly made all the difference, and we’re deeply honored to have shared this journey with you.
    Until we meet again, keep creating things that you want to see. 
    Michelle & Steve

The Thoughtful Creatives

This podcast hits on two of my favorite things: 1) it’s a podcast and I love podcasts so it has that going for it and 2) it’s an authentic and interesting conversation about creativity. These hosts really have thoughtful conversations each week to get me thinking and they are different enough to provide multiple perspectives. A great podcast gets the listener to a place where they are thinking, intrigued to stay the course to the end, and leaving with something to relate to. This pod accomplishes all three.
