Raw View of the Human Condition

I’ve been searching for content to help me along the journey of life and struggling with art and design. This podcast has been a complete breath of fresh air that assures me that we’re not as special as everyone says we are, we all have struggles, we all have strengths.
We are as special as what we do, think and react. Question everything, enjoy the good and the bad, for that is life.

I'm along for the ride

It's been an interesting road from Random Badassery to where we are now, but Chad clearly has a love for what he does and brings to others. There's definite value in every iteration of the podcast and I'm just happy to see where I'm taken next.

One of my favorite podcasts

Love this podcast because of its dedication to exploring creativity from multiple angles. I loved the old format but also am enjoying the new format. Excited to see what the future holds for Creative Minds.
