Entertaining and Informative

This is one of my Go-To podcasts. Each episode delivers something different - including gems of inspiration to maintain your creative habit. Their most recent episode was about creative block, which is something that has plagued me recently. Their discussion was honest and real and really hit the spot. They also run a brilliant Facebook group which is full of different creatives using every medium imaginable. Another source of inspiration that you shouldn’t miss. Jay (aka Roving Jay)

Just lovely -

It’s so fun to listen to these ladies banter back and forth. Between the laughs is some sincere inspiration and encouraging advice. So grateful for them sharing their experiences with others.

WONDERFUL!

Just discovered these lovely ladies and am a new fan & follower! Very inviting personalities and fun, interesting and informed conversations. It will be fun to go through their episodes and catch up before 2023!
