pearla moon ,

Yes yes yes!

Excellent! Love it! Useful, funny and interesting!

Gentlewave ,

Chime

Creative people so often don’t have the opportunity to simply talk about the nite and bolts of creativity and this helps fill that void.
I know it’s a good podcast when I find myself wanting to chime into the dialogue and ask questions or give my penny’s worth.

Chuckielove69 ,

Really grounding!

I really get ton's out of these two. They're a perfectly matched duo. They both strike me as very different and at the same time their differences really deepen the conversation on process, and beinag a creative artist.
