Phil Ogden ,

Rich, textured dialogue about creativity through humanity

I had modest expectations about this podcast and the usual bullet-point, paint by numbers, digestible nuggets I can take from podcasts. To my joyous surprise, Kat O’Leary champions a much deeper discussion about creativity by wanting to know more about the guest and their journey. I absorbed a lot from her Ep5 discussion regarding mental health which lead wonderfully into how her guest was creative through those things. I would recommend this cast highly as I learned something new about creativity while at the same time being validated in it. Check it.
