Customer Reviews

Just what I needed.

I just started a creative project and told two friends who rolled their eyes and said sarcastically “That’s original.” These are the little fears and insecurities that keep us from even trying to do something. I’m so glad I was reading “Big Magic”at the the time. It’s like having that encouraging friend in your back pocket. This podcast is that same friend in my ears. Thank you, Liz.

Magic is real

I am going to be one of those people who compliments this lovely podcast by saying how I dislike most podcasts.

But I have to say that because this is the only podcast I've listened to in its entirety so far. In fact, I've never finished a single episode of any other podcast, even one on topics I love and with people I enjoy.

The format of Magic Lessons is remarkable and fun. I'm an advice column junky; I love listening to Liz Gilbert speak and I love creativity, so this is the perfect meeting of those things. The blend of wise experts with the regular people like me offers something new. The interactions are beautiful, and I've learned a ton.

Magic Lessons is lively! It's a podcast with so much laughter and joy that it's such a pleasure to listen to. This is no serious, quiet discussion but a love fest with creativity and inspirational people.

Magic is real. If you didn't believe it before, this podcast will show you.

My weekly dose of inspiration

I love love love this podcast. Every episode is somehow always relatable, and I feel like even when the situation seems so far from mine, the advice offered is always spot on with something I've found myself going through as a creative and as a business owner of a creative business. This is full of inspiration and solid advice, and I am absoloutly over the moon to hear season 2. Thank you for creating such a wonderful podcast!
