inspiring guests and great relevant applicable conversations in todays digital age!
This podcast gives me the spoonful of inspiration and motivation I need on my morning commute. It really feeds a niche that I haven't discovered in any iTunes podcasts yet, which really speaks the the freelancers, creative entrepreneur, artists lifestyle. Its a larger conversation than solely about art and process, but also in the greater scheme of todays rapid media consumption how do you sift thru the noise, stay relevant, and come up ahead.
MergeLeft is a MUST LISTEN!!
As an artist I love listening to Mergeleft. The people on it are all unique and interesting! It's really cool to know their process in their work, and how they've reinvented themselves again and again. As someone trying to do exactly that, it's fascinating to hear their routine! Especially people from all different backgrounds- great podcast and Kristyna keeps it light and hilarious! A MUST LISTEN!!
Great new podcast, I will be subscribing. Interesting conversation and ideas, looking forward to listening to the next one!
