Love it!

Beyond & Back is a fantastic podcast for anyone interested in creativity. I think the host, Krissy, has such a warm, gentle soul and that helps her guests feel comfortable opening up about their lives, their work, and their creative process. The editing is also top notch, so it’s a joy to listen to.

Insightful Questions

Krissy has a beautiful way of asking questions of her guests that elicit so much honesty and authenticity. She often invites her guests to reflect out loud, perhaps for the first time, the moments in their creative journey that mattered the most. SUBSCRIBE now, you won't regret it!
