Amazing Insight for Creators

I just discovered this podcast and was originally binge watching on YouTube, but there’s more here. This is such a great resource and is so informative for people who work in this industry. I definitely enjoy hearing the insight from so many different personalities who are killing it as creatives.

Creatives vs the World!

My brother and I came across this podcast on YouTube and literally have been hooked since. Being full time freelance creatives, we can get lost in the sauce. This podcast has completely helped us advance our business. The transparency that Ben and Dave deliver in every podcast is exactly what every creative needs to hear. We have had countless moments that felt like we were sitting down talking face to face with them. It’s nice to know that some of the same mistakes trials and tribulations that we go through a lot of other creatives have as well. If you’re questioning listening.. stop questioning and start listening!!!

Best. Podcast. Out. Right. M...F…… NEOOOW!

Yooo I’ve been listening to the BWNC podcast since it came out three years ago (also was probably one of the first 100 members of the online group) and it’s definitely one of the best podcasts out right now regardless of genre. Wow Chloe, but how is this podcast relevant to me if I’m not in media or music? WELL… Storytelling is extremely valuable across disciplines, and Ben, Dave, and company tell compelling stories on the podcast. Media, music, and entertainment are daunting industries to break into, and even if you are in the industry you might find yourself in a rut. I looooove the range of guests and the fact that they’re sharing their experiences of how they got to where they are and any advice they have for others. I’m kind of a TDE stan so some of my fav episodes where when we heard from Keem, Matt Genius, Ben’s AMA, and also the episode where Dave shared his entrance into BWNC. The podcast goes to show that what matters the most in this industry is RELATIONSHIPS! Keep up the great work Ben + Dave — looking forward to more from BWNC.
