LOVED the Love Letters ❤️
I listen to lots of podcasts (including Dear Artist) and love hearing interviews with artists. But this episode was different - it broke out of the usual format and gave the selected interviewees full reign of their content. Each artist had such thoughtful, heartfelt advice or ‘love letters’ with totally different perspectives, encouragement and inspiration. It was just a really refreshing listen and it moved me so much. Thank you for this!
Really affirming and encouraging.
I really enjoyed listening to this. It gave me a great deal of encouragement and I definitely felt seen listening to someone else’s process and struggles. I’m looking forward to going back through all of the earlier episodes and listening to them as well.
