ShaunMillionaire ,

Wow, I’m becoming endeared to these guys

I love high intellect and deep insights. So much amazing content. I’ve been listening at 2x speed for half a day.

My only complaint would be with Apple or the podcast app that doesn’t seem to let me play from the oldest podcast forward to the most recent. It’s even replayed a few episodes. They aren’t going in order, and that’s lame, but I’ve abandoned trying to manage them one by one.

Palettehead ,

Wide-ranging, wry discussions on life and art

Stan and Marshall bring out the most reassuring AND thought provoking points. And, often hilarious! The discussions embrace a wide range of the human creativity experience, which has me noting (and reading) books, authors, writers, and appreciating the conceptional, natural modes of all Creatives- some I had personally experienced, and others I’d never heard of. While I didn’t go to a fine arts school, (just graphic arts in trade school, just at the advent of computer typesetting) I kind of feel these guys are my Tribe! So glad I found them! PERFECT to listen to while prepping and making art! Cheers to them, and James Gurney for leading my attention to them! - Pat in New Hampshire, US

Love the show

Listen to you guys a lot, love the podcast. That sound Stan made had me laughing hard. Also gave me the epiphany that I forgot in my older how good just silly humor can be.
