Creative journeys

Since leaving my full-time job to build my own creative business, I’ve enjoyed listening to podcasts. I find it valuable to hear from people who are further along in their creative career, and I love to learn how others manage their businesses. Most of all, it’s fascinating to listen to the creative journeys of others. So, here are five podcasts I tend to dip into when I’m at my desk:

Five podcasts for creatives..

1. Creative pep talk, Andy Miller

2. The jealous curator: art for your ear, Danielle Krysa

3. Inspirational creatives, Rob Lawrence

4. Raise your hand. Say yes, Tiffany Han

5. Magic lessons, Elizabeth Gilbert

Emma Bridgewater VQ retro radio

In September, I attended Emma Bridgewater’s charity open garden weekend. Emma lives in a stunning period property in the Oxfordshire village of Bampton. When I look at her designs, I think 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 – I received the famous rose and bee print. It’s been a delight to listen to my favourite podcasts on this retro beauty!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful day.

    I listen to some of these, I find I need to like the persons voice as to whether it becomes a long term listen!

    Natasha after a busy workinging day i sat down to read your post and became absorbed with the podcasts. I have now taken to my bed (an early night for once) and I am still listening with crochet hook in hand!
    The best thing about a podcast is that you can do other things whilst listening to them, so happy to have found some new ones to listen to, best wishes for a lovely weekend enjoy!

    I’m currently on the hunt for new podcasts to listen to, so this is a great find. The radio looks lovely too – it’s very clever how your phone connects up with it.

      Thanks, Rachel. The phone connection is really simple and it’s great to switch between podcasts and 6 Music!

    I’ve never really listened to podcasts before but these sound really interesting. I might check them out to listen to while I’m at work. Love how you’ve styled the radio too.

    I usually listen to serial killer podcasts (I know right?!) so I might try your suggestions instead, slightly cheerier! I love the radio sooooo much
