    Episode 5: Linking Ideas

    In an interview with Wired magazine in 1996, Steve Jobs said, “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.”
    Creativity is simply linking ideas. I buy it. In fact, this podcast is a product of linkages. Find out how in this episode.

A unique approach to telling unique stories

There was more of a set format in the early episodes, but now it's more free form and so much more interesting. The stories have always been unique. Now the presentation is just as unique.

Well Done!!

What I like best is that there’s no set format. One show is an interview. Another show is a monologue. Another show is a television pilot. It’s a bit weird, but I like it.

Keep up the good work

It’s good!
