Wonderful topics, beautifully discussed. I'm so glad someone is taking these topics of DIY, fairly paying artists, collaboration, touring, etc and discussing them in a public forum. 10/10. Will listen again.
This podcast is full of wonderful conversation about how can we be more effective in what we are doing. This deals specifically with art, but as someone who is in ministry I find this be a tool that not only gives me fresh ideas about how to promote myself better, but also convicts me to truly evaluate why I am doing things. This is an amazing podcast no matter where you find yourself in life.
Find some great new artists and get a taste of who the people behind the music really are.
