A Pipeline Artists original podcast about nothing and everything. Hosts Sadie Dean and Jeanne Veillette Bowerman share the truth, and nothing but the truth, about the challenges and benefits of living life as artists, striving for freedom to create in any medium, even ones you never thought of before. It's honest—no sugarcoating or selling hope. We tell it like it is, while always finding ways to make lemonade out of lemons. Think of us as Michael Bay, but with action items that don’t explode.

    The Artist Mindset with Multi-Hyphenate Dusty Wright: Don't Let Fear Hold You Back

    The Artist Mindset with Multi-Hyphenate Dusty Wright: Don't Let Fear Hold You Back

    Dusty Wright has done it all—musician, William Morris agent, creator of a magazine, interviewed the likes of Led Zeppelin and Ron Howard, and so much more.

    His story will not only inspire, but also humble every artist who hears it.

    This one isn't just for musicians. It's for artists of all stripes! We dive deep into the mindset of the creator.

    (Apologies for Jeanne's sound sucking in the intro. Don't worry, it's fine for the full interview. Turns out earbuds can't compare to a real mic.)

    This one has more resources than we even realized, and even more to come, so check back later for Sadie's list of writing books!

Easy Listening…

Love turning this on to zone out. Sade and Jeanne are excellent together. The topics are geared more toward writing, but most anyone in the arts would appreciate this one!

Writing Partners ep

Hey I really enjoyed this episode- very entertaining and thought provoking. My writing partner and I just wrote a script and I would have loved a little more direction on where to locate partner specific contracts/agreements with WGA. Maybe even a link😘
