Episode Notes Lest you think your creative practice will or should be a linear progression to mastery and achievement, we pull back the veil on some of our current experiences in our creative practices that really drive home the notion (you’ll see what we did there when you listen) that creating is indeed a practice. […]
Episode Notes In this episode we talk about the kind of narratives in our lives that are like icebergs. We tell a story about a kid on the playground who just wanted to imagine he was on a ship. And then we bring him again. And again. Our narratives, whether we create them ourselves, they’re […]
Episode Notes This episode marks a new four-ish part series on narratives, what they are, how they affect our ability to start or maintain our creative practice, and what you can do to change those narratives that are not so helpful. We start with everyday narratives because those are the low hanging fruit of introspection, […]

Whether it’s housework or social media or just general ennui, it happens to everyone and that’s okay. The question is how do we […]
Episode Notes Ginger and Jonathan discuss the interior struggles and rewards that go along with your creative practice. We discuss Ginger’s transformative residency at MASS MoCA and the nature of frustration and breaking through. Toss in the lyrical concept of Begeisterung (be-spirited-ness), the use of metaphor to examine the world, curiosity and processing your world […]
