    In this episode, we discuss the shift that has been challenging us to learn as we go.

    Learn, Learn, Learn, Do, is out.

    The journey is the outcome

    At one time or another, we’ve all had these sparks of motivation that propel us in our creative endeavors, helping us to realize a dream or ambition.

    But what about those moments when the sparks don’t come? When it feels like we may never finish the project.

    We’ve both dealt with this feeling before and felt we owed it an episode. What we realized might just help you too, if you’ve been feeling stuck of late.

    Do you really want to know what’s trending?

    You never know what you’re going to walk into when you open up your social media feed.

    Who did what now? What’s canceled? And how was your last post so wildly misconstrued?

    Such was the case for Elle Hunt, a journalist who sent a seemingly harmless tweet that led to an internet explosion, thanks to a bump from Twitter’s Trending Topics feature.

    In this episode we explore healthier ways to engage in online discussions and build meaningful relationships.

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.
