Creativity church

As a creative, writer, musician and entertainer- Dr. Nancy’s podcast are like church/school/therapy and a chat with my closest friends all rolled up in one. Her ability to create a safe space to talk to real people about the creative process and/or the process of being and becoming a thoughtful human being cuts across all genres, classes, and generations. Whether she is talking to an icon and household name like Dolly Parton or someone just starting out - it’s the same relaxed, thoughtful discussion about BEING in the entertainment industry.
