The Art of Process with Aimee Mann and Ted Leo is the newest artistic collaboration from legendary singer-songwriters Aimee Mann and Ted Leo. Every other week, Aimee and Ted talk to friends across the creative spectrum to find out how they work. And sure, they're friends with a lot of musicians, but weirdly not as many as you'd expect. So you'll hear from comedians, directors, novelists, show creators - ok, yes, some musicians - writers, producers and more, as they discuss the process of turning an idea into art.

Brilliant.

Never fails to get me to see something in a new way or give me something to think about once the podcast is over...

Something New

There's no shortage of podcasts where creative types (bad phrase, sorry) talk to each other about their "process," but this is the first one I can think of that actually *focuses* on process. It's gotten tiring to listen to, say, a comedian or actor be cagey about choices they've made, or to pretend like they didn't make choices at all, that their work just woke up like that. The idea that "things just happen" is certainly true, and is *one* part of the creative process, but it's probably 95% of what gets discussed in interviews and even in many corners of creative education. Aimee & Ted have a terrific way of drawing out details and specifics from their guests, and obviously it helps that these are two veteran professionals who have no qualms about discussing their own processes and blind spots. I recommend this show for anyone striving to do anything. For real.

Even if the convo’s just about Kranch

I will happily listen to Aimee and Ted about anything because their brains play off each other beautifully. Listened to the Eric White ep twice; it was so full of insights and invisible hamster wheel moments. Will be flipping SWIMS upside down in my head to send myself to sleep from here on out.
