When I am stuck in a creative rut, one of the things I do to get inspiration is to listen to podcasts. There is nothing like listening to a person whose work you enjoy getting excited about something. I find that it either inspires me to try new things or opens my mind to other ways to look at the world. Below are the 5 podcasts that I listen to the most to find creativity.
1. Being Boss
This is one of my favorite podcasts. It’s very focused on entrepreneurship. It is hosted by two women: Kathrine and Emily. They have some of the best dynamics when they’re talking to each other, but they also bring on guests on many episodes. The episodes are conversations about a specific topic which can range from mindfulness or even using Tarot for business, to analytics and success stories.
I have been listening to Andy for years and his enthusiasm is still just as contagious as it was when I first started listening. The episodes are either him talking about a topic or sharing a life lesson, or an interview with a fellow artist.
Dan Berry is a comic book artist and illustrator who interview other comic book artists and illustrators. He loves to dig into the creative process and how an artist works. It’s very interesting to me to listen to how someone might approach their work and what their mindset is. It’s always good to open your mind to other ways of doing.
This is another podcast hosted by a couple of female entrepreneurs:Abagail and Emylee. it is very similar in structure to Being Boss mentioned above, but since the personalities of the hosts are different it doesn’t feel similar when you listen to it. It focuses on business and marketing for small business and their guests are always very interesting people.
Let me know in the comments below if you listen to any of these, or if you have any recommendations for other podcasts!
