    39. Gimme a Break | The Importance of Taking Time Off

    Taking breaks is an important part of our mental health... whether it's 15 minutes to make a Sonic run (you know we love our Happy Hour!), an impromptu weekend out-of-town, or three weeks off the grid. This week, we're talking about why it's so hard to take meaningful time away,  different types of breaks and their unique benefits, our tips for giving ourself permission to rest. This'll be our last episode until August. We're taking our own advice and planning a podcast break to get us through our busy summer schedule in the studio.

    38. That's So Cliche | Resisting the Urge to Paint with a Broad Brush

    This week we're looking at a handful of cliches and how creativity helps us understand them better (or debunk them altogether). We also dive into the stereotype of a "typical artist" to understand why it can be hard for so many people to discount their own creativity.

    35. Hey, Can You Make This? | Tips for Doing Business with Creatives

    One of the greatest joys of the creative process is gifting things to friends. On the other hand, one of the greatest frustrations is navigating the actual process of selling your work. In this episode, we're talking about a few things we wish people understood about purchasing handmade goods and passing on tips to help consumers do business with creatives. Fair warning: We jump on a few soap boxes in this one :)

    Communication is tricky. No matter how hard we try to be understood, what we say isn't always what other people hear. This week we're talking about the lessons we've learned from creativity that have helped us become better communicators.

Wonderful podcast

Over the last 2 weeks, I have listened to the 30 episodes out so far. This is so much more than I expected. The insights shared not only apply to creativity, but also to life in general. I am especially thankful for episode 7. I had to go back and listen a second time. Thank you to Jo and Madison for sharing your thoughts.
