    How is Johnny Depp perceived now? Cancel culture affecting creators. And... modesty principles.

    How is Johnny Depp perceived now? Cancel culture affecting creators. And... modesty principles.

    I had a camera fail. Lost camera 2 but 1 and 3 managed to film wide and close. Lost the seated camera footage.  

    In this episode I talk about:  

    00:00 Johnny Depp and the perception of Depp post his defamation trial win. 

    08:20 The effects of cancel culture on creators and creatives. 

    14:48 What is modesty if we view it from a non-muslim perspective rather than a muslim perspective and how is their freedom within modesty. (I waffled a lot in the third segment but there we have it!).  I will be very happy to revisit any of these subjects in the next episode. Please request.    

    RECOMMENDATIONS:  Get this book to discover and recover your creativity. I read it after coming out of a traumatic experience and it became my go-to book and journaling practice to help get me out of my funk: https://amzn.to/2VSWJ9j (This link also pays me a lil sumthin so I appreciate your support).  My favourite microphone for podcasting and recording in general is: https://amzn.to/2JRlZK0 (Again I benefit from this link only ... it's a fabulous microphone but you will need an XLR and also a soundcard/interface: https://amzn.to/2Ij1966 THIS is the one I have and I have leved it. If you're a musician - or aspiring - then it's definitely comes highly recommended). But a simpler soundcard/interface - middle person between your mic and computer - would be a FOCUSRITE https://amzn.to/3ooEOmX. Now I don't have this but so many have recommended it. The Yamaha that I have recommended gives 2 inputs. It's also phantom powered. It comes down to your individual preference ;).
