One of the greatest hurdles for artists is fear. In this podcast, NYC based artist and self-diagnosed clown, Rose Arscott invites artists and art-humans around the world to join in a conversation about their fears and how that relates to their work. The conversations cover the ground in and around art-making, touching upon love, family, sex, bodies, queerness, gender, self-care, productivity, community, growth, activism, plants, and more. Together we are cultivating creativity through an expanding community of artists by sharing stories of learning from fear.

Lovey dovey land!
What a dream. This podcast is so gently vulnerable, and a great listen for everyone who experiences fear! We all have those demons telling us to be smaller, and Rose does a great job on shining a light on them so we can see what we’re really afraid of: our greatest potential! So grateful for this woman and her mind, give it a listen peeps!
Soup Killed My Family
I hate soup, soup killed my entire family. This podcast made me see that not all soups are responsible for the actions of one bad soup. I can now enjoy soup again - thank you Rose
I am so excited about this podcast!
I am a singer songwriter, and I deal with imposter syndrome regularly. It’s to the extent that I have nearly talked myself out of doing music at all, several times.
I love that you made a podcast for those of us who love art and also struggle to accept ourselves. Amazing!!!
