I've only just discovered Podcasts in the last year or so. As an artist and designer, I spend many hours in my studio creating. Sometimes I do so in silence, letting my mind wander and often becoming so focused on my work that I completely block everything else out.
But, when I feel like I need a pick me up, I'll play one of my many playlists on iTunes and even plug in to Songza (now google play - which I have to say, I don't enjoy nearly as much) now and then for some fresh music.
However, about a year ago, I was introduced to a few Podcasts. I would tune in when I needed a change or felt like some inspiration. It wasn't until recently that I discovered a few great podcasts that I now tune-in to regularly. Some I'd recommend specifically for creative entrepreneurs and some are just fun and interesting stories that inspire creativity in other ways. I just love to hear first hand, stories and situations that real people face as well as lessons learned and advice from those experiences. I hope you find a few new favourite podcasts to listen to within my list!
Check out my 7 Podcasts for Creative Entrepreneurs List!
Being Boss - My favourite by far! I love the range of topics that Kathleen and Emily choose to cover. And they sound like girls that I'd like to be friends and hang-out with!!
Raise Your Hand and Say Yes with Tiffany Han - I started a list of 100 Asks inspired by this very interesting series of podcasts!
Elise Gets Crafty - Covers a great range of topics from business, to creativity, to blogging.
The Jealous Curator: Art for Your Ear - So much inspiration here and on her Instagram feed too!
Magic Lessons with Elizabeth Gilbert - If you haven't read Big Magic yet, go to your local bookstore, Kindle, Tablet etc and read it! Enough said.
Serial - We listened to the entire season 1 while driving to Florida at Christmas. Love how they deliver bits of information and interviews.
Vinyl Cafe Stories from CBC Radio - This is a new one for me. A friend of mine suggested it a few weeks ago and although I haven't dived in deep yet, the narrative and story telling is fantastic!
Let me know if you have any favourite Podcasts that I need to listen to!! I'd love to check them out!
