HeathersArt ,

Passion is key with this podcast!!

I love finding new and fun podcasts I can listen to/learn from as I work on my Art!! This podcast does not disappoint!! In my humble opinion, The common denominator in these stories told are stories of wonderful people sharing the love for what they do with others.I love the stories told from band directors, drama teachers, coaches.... and I can personally relate to how those experiences with extra curricular activies have helped shaped me into the person I am today!! But above all, These stories sell the Passion of the people we meet so that we can help inspire others to pursue those goals, dreams.... Hard Work also plays a big part of that too!! I'm a little partial because I had a great band director myself (Ahem, Dr. Nichols!-LOL)
