What did we get right and what did we get wrong? Have any lessons been learned?

This Well is Deep!

Creativity can come in many forms, and it’s clear that Branan and Anson understand this very well (no pun intended there).

Whether you’re a writer, actor, musician, or another type of craftsman, this podcast is for you! By providing this listening space, Branan and Anson invite us to explore along with them the kaleidoscope-like process of creativity. It’s refreshing to hear artists admit that it’s not always a beautiful and sublime journey towards creation. It can be downright brutal and terrifying. Listening to these two individuals share their honest experiences with their craft and talk with other artists about their process gives me the motivation to continue honing my own craft. Thank you Branan and Anson! You’ve made a fan out of me :)
