Weekly Remix #1

Weekly Remix Podcast Roundup

Happy Monday, friends! I thought I'd try out an idea: to share a collection of interesting podcasts that I've listened to while working on art. My main rule for sharing is just that they have to be thought provoking or alter my perspective in some way. If you listen to any of them, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

1. Conscious Uncoupling - The Jess Lively Show

Admittedly, I was a little skeptical of listening to this episode, because I'd only known about 'conscious uncoupling' from all those gossip articles about Gwyneth Paltrow. But, this episode presents some really interesting ideas about how to approach and view relationships and breakups in a refreshing way. I don't think this episode is just for people going through a breakup, but I think we can all benefit from the perspective illustrated here.

2. This is What Happens When You Reply to Spam Email - James Veitch

This is a really entertaining talk about a guy who decided to actually respond to one of those emails that promises to make you rich. A fun and lighthearted story, that I found to be a great reminder to have fun with your curiosities.

3. Make Piles of Crap, Kate Bingaman-Burt - Art for Your Ear

I loved hearing Kate talk about how her life evolved as an illustrator and her philosophy as an educator. It was really fascinating to hear her walk through the thought process behind one of her highly personal projects, Daily Purchase Drawings.
