I have started to listen to podcasts while editing along with Victory by my feet! So I thought I would share these podcasts with you. Below are a few recent podcasts that I found inspirational and interesting to listen to and I think that others will enjoy as well!
On Being: Mary Oliver: The famous poet discusses her journey as a poet. Mary Oliver does not give many interviews, so it was very interesting to listen to her speak about her life and her craft — very inspiring, indeed! Plus, she is a dog lover!
Good Life Project: Ed Catmull: The founder of Pixar, discusses how art informs and teaches us and the connection between artistic thinking and entrepreneurship. In his recent book Creativity Inc., Ed Catmull discusses how creativity is cultivated, what is required, and his own journey from studying physics to founding Pixer. My favorite quote from this podcast is, “When you take art, the thing you are actually learning to do is to see.” This is so true. So much about art and creativity is actually based on how you see and interpret the world.
Chopra: Elizabeth Gilbert: Discusses creativity and moving through fear. Elizabeth Gilbert also has a new book coming out later this year entitled, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. There is also an interesting brief Ted Talk by Elizabeth Gilbert on creativity and failure, which is quite interesting and worth watching!
Alt Summit: Lisa Congdon: An artist, illustrator, and author was the keynote speaker at the recent AltSummit. In this talk, she discusses her art career, her art identity, and big lessons that she learned along the way. I found these words inspiring to listen to.
