Always Interesting

This podcast focuses on the different dimensions of creativity through interviews and Mr Greenwood’s personal experiences. The shows are fun and inspiring thanks to Greenwood’s masterful interviewing and storytelling skills. He is fascinated by the people he interviews and that makes us want to learn more about him. His personal story episodes are just as interesting and often as chilling as the best fiction. I look forward to each new episode.
