Since working freelance, I’ve valued listening to podcasts about creativity and business. I find it interesting to learn how others implement balance in their work and lives. And I’m always fascinated to hear about the creative journeys of others. Today I’m sharing five inspiring podcasts for creatives along with the beautiful Emma Bridgewater Retro MK II Radio.
INSPIRING PODCASTS FOR CREATIVES
Make it Happen – Jen Carrington
I’m a huge fan of Jen’s work, so much so that I signed up for her coaching sessions when I decided to quit my day job. Her podcast consists of interviews with creative business owners and mini episodes covering topics like ’embracing a season of enough in your creative life’ to ‘you can run an online business without losing yourself to the internet.’ It seems whatever worry I might have Jen has an episode covering it!
Magic Lessons – Elizabeth Gilbert
I couldn’t publish a post about creative podcasts without including Magic Lessons by Elizabeth Gilbert. Elizabeth is the author of Big Magic and is truly passionate about the important business of creativity! I enjoy her discussions because she’s inquisitive and she helps people shake up their fears and move forward. I also find her voice extremely calming on a busy day.
Ctrl, Alt, Delete – Emma Gannon
Emma Gannon is a blogger, author, speaker and digital consultant. In her podcast, she interviews inspiring creatives often focussing on the online world, a subject she covers in her book Ctrl, Alt, Delete How I Grew Up Online. She interviews a great mix of people and in a recent episode, she chats to writer and broadcaster Miranda Sawyer about getting older. Definitely worth a listen.
Blogtacular – Kat Molesworth
Blogtacular is ‘the place for people whose hearts beat with creativity to come together to meet, share and inspire.’ The podcast is perfect if you’re a blogger, independent business owner, creative or simply want to listen to inspiring folk. Kat’s positive style is infectious as she encourages creatives to share their stories. There are always lots of useful tips and things to learn and most of all it’s a joy to listen to some of my friends!
Creative Pep Talk – Andy J. Miller
Andy Miller is an illustrator and in each episode, he shares the tools you need to help get the very best out of your creative work. His podcasts are inspirational and uplifting and he never fails to make me smile. Another great one to listen to!
EMMA BRIDGEWATER VQ RETRO MK II RADIO
In September, I attended Emma Bridgewater’s charity open garden weekend and became fascinated by her work. She lives in a stunning period property in the Oxfordshire village of Bampton. I can no longer look at her designs without thinking of her home and some of the inspiration she must have found there.
Coincidentally I was recently contacted by VQ to try out their Emma Bridgewater Retro MK II Radio which I was happy to accept. The radio is available in six designs and I received the famous rose and bee print. It’s a sweet little thing, the quality is good and the sound is terrific. It has been a delight to listen to my favourite podcasts on this retro beauty!
