Everyday Photography (Every Day)" is a weekly podcast where you get to listen in on a chat between a photographer (Rubin) and a regular human (Suzanne Fritz-Hanson) with an eye on making your pictures amazing and helping you enjoy your photography more. No technical stuff. No talk of gear or software. Just photography for the fun of it.
Rubin brings a unique perspective to consumer media: a student of Jerry Uelsmann; an amateur photographer for 40 years; formerly of Lucasfilm, Netflix and Adobe; director of The Rubin Collection of Photography; and founder of Neomodern, he's long been passionate about advancing the language of photography.

Why make photographs
I particularly like the "why" of photography. Sounds like an oxymoron to listen to people talk about photographs - but they do a great job and make it work. Give it a few listens and you'll get hooked.
Fantastic breath of fresh air

Find your muse in an entertaining conversation
As a long-time casual photographer, I have sometimes found myself in a rut--bored of what I'm producing, but unsure how to change things up. Sometimes I've reinvigorated my interest with a purchase (a new lens, say), sometimes with an exercise (textures, triangles, etc.), and sometimes with some inspiration. This podcast is an inspiration for anyone who likes photography, and needs a little push to expand their horizons. Mike and Suzanne do it, not by bamboozling you with technical specifications, but by helping you develop your eye. It comes across not like being instructed, but more like a cocktail conversation that has you itching to speak up as well. I'm glad I got turned on to this.
