Always looking for new podcasts to pass the time on my daily commutes, and the ones that are off the beaten path are very hit-or-miss. Live2cre8 is definitely the former - a big HIT - with really cool insider stories and great insights into the minds and habits of uber creative people. Whether you're a creative type or not, you'll find something useful in here. I can't recommend it highly enough!
Calling all creatives and anyone with a desire to be inspired! This is a must hear pod cast. Tune in and be ready to hear some incredible interviews of how the human race grabs onto their dreams and turns them into their realities. Whether you want to learn how they mastered their goals or ignite your own creative fire within, this is the podcast for you. Highly recommend adding it to your day!
You had me at “Prince!” As a professional singer, the music themed interviews intrigued me. Within the first 5 guests, I get the Grammy-winning producer who worked with Prince and basically created the sound of the 80’s, as well as the guy who invented that insane Marble Machine? Can’t even begin to imagine how Shane found these people, but I’m sure glad he did! I think it’s safe to say this is my new "favoritest" podcast on iTunes.
