Completely hooked on this show! I keep binge listening to certain episodes until my ears ring. I don't consider myself a creative, and hearing that it's something I can learn and improve on through diligent practice is SO exciting.

Great podcast and excellent presenter
Saw her at the Wisconsin Library Association convention in 2017. Easily the highlight of the conference for me. Signed up for her podcast before the program was over and have also found that very helpful. The notion that creativity flourishes with prompts or with appropriate structure, while other structures simply crush it is obvious when stated so eloquently and clearly. Her podcast brings in other top pros in the field and is now a staple for me.
