The Art of Process with Aimee Mann and Ted Leo is the newest artistic collaboration from legendary singer-songwriters Aimee Mann and Ted Leo. Every other week, Aimee and Ted talk to friends across the creative spectrum to find out how they work. And sure, they're friends with a lot of musicians, but weirdly not as many as you'd expect. So you'll hear from comedians, directors, novelists, show creators - ok, yes, some musicians - writers, producers and more, as they discuss the process of turning an idea into art.

Love this... entertaining, smart and mind opening
Craft is important and really hard to discuss in an interesting way. These two (and their well curated guests) make it seem super easy.
ps. Aimee, I worked on a music video you shot with Katherine Dieckmann in a lake house north of Ithaca, NY. You were super cool and came around to everyone (including me as a PA) and thanked us all and were open to conversation and questions. Super classy.
An exploration in craft and inspiration that is illuminating.
Two really smart and thoughtful people talking to other really smart thoughtful people. It's what a pod cast should be. There are way too many out there with people just spouting stuff they have not really thought about or don't know much about. Even an interviewer with little prior knowledge of a subject needs to ask the right questions. I do think there is something to be said for experience and historical context.
