Summer Listening: Podcasts for Artists

How your summer’s going? I’ve been working hard on preparing for the release of my new podcast while still trying to learn everything I can about other podcasts for artists.

I love sharing my discoveries with you. I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback from artists who are finding value in some of these shows. So I will carry on!

This week I want to start by introducing to The Arty-Time Podcast.

This show really spoke to me in a big way, I wonder if you’ll like it as much as I do?

From the first episode when artist Adam Millward shared his story, I found myself nodding along in agreement, laughing out loud, and wishing I could be there to join in the conversation.

This is an artist’s podcast about being an artist, buying art, and selling art. To be frank, I don’t agree with everything that’s being said by Adam and his co-host Germdee, but they admit that art isn’t a cookie-cutter industry. Take what you need and leave the rest.

But there is PLENTY here to fill you up. Usually I recommend a specific episode, but for Arty-Time Podcast I suggest that you start at the beginning and keep going!

Your Creative Push Podcast

This show is advertised as the podcast that pushes you to pursue your creative passion. There are hundreds of episodes to choose from and from what I’ve heard so far, they all have value.

Two of my favorites include “Name Your Monster”with guest Jeff Wright. Even though Jeff isn’t a traditional artist, his story is fascinating and holds a lot of wisdom for all creatives.

Jeff was a history teacher who suffered a brain injury and was no longer able to continue doing the work he loved – until he found a creative way to change his story from tragedy to success. If you’ve ever faced a challenge that felt might define you in a way you weren’t comfortable with, this episode will speak to you.

Give episode #332 a listen as well. “Guard Your Attention” with guest Daniel Robinson was full of wisdom for creative people serious about their craft.

Daniel is a screenwriter but again, all artists share the same hurdles on this journey so it doesn’t matter the medium, there is wisdom to be shared. In this episode, Daniel reveals his own long struggle to success and how he overcame his demons along the way.

 The Potters Cast with Paul Blais

This show advertises itself as “Picking up where the art degree ends.” This long running show (now over 500 episodes to choose from!) mainly focuses on artists who work in ceramics but I found a lot here to listen to.

I recommend you start with this episode titled “Building A Brand: An Interview with Bhairavi Naik.” ‘Nuff said.

The last podcast on my list is not necessary a podcast for artists but I’m going to recommend it for you anyway. I recently met the incredibly inspirational couple Scott and Marla Berger, founders of the Tree of Life Movement.

They gifted me one of their powerful Intention Stick necklaces when we met. You can see the three of us showing it off in the photo above!

The more I learned about the Bergers and the story of the movement they’ve started, the more interested I became in their work. Obviously I’m not the only one because they’ve been invited to work with the Pope, yes the Pope, as well as the Queen of England, and many other Thought Leaders have been drawn to their mission.

This interview with Marla explores some of her philosophy and practices around using intention.

To learn more about their global Intention Stick movement, visit their website.

I hope that you enjoy this new round-up of podcasts. I’m having a blast listening to them. And please feel free to tell me about your favorites!
