Ginger and Jonathan discuss the myths of who gets to be called a “real” creative, everything from tortured geniuses to fame to education. We go down six or seven tangential rabbit holes all of which provide pearls of unparalleled wisdom or at least some useful/entertaining tidbits. We talk about ways to overcome those myths or at the very least get perspective on those and how to know if you are, in fact, a real creative. What happens next will astound you.
