30 Days of Thinking Out Loud
Today marks the beginning of a dream I've had for a while, but couldn't bring myself to embark upon until now. I'm making a podcast. Actually, it's more like a 30-day mini-podcast, in which I dive into the things I've been reading, watching, and listening to, in under 5 minutes.
It all started when I was listening to an episode of the Design Matters podcast, in which Debbie Millman interviews Sam Winston. At the end she reads a quote from him about creation over consumption, and it got me thinking about all the stuff I consume in any given day, but never really engage with or talk about. An article or a twitter feed might spark something in me, but how often do I actually take that spark and do something with it?
Thus was born Thinking Out Loud, a podcast about ideas and inspiration, and being intentional with the information we consume. I wanted it to be a 30 day challenge because I want to push myself to learn as much as I can about this new medium, and hopefully, I'll get better as I go along. There's something exhilarating about doing something completely out of my creative comfort zone, and this definitely falls into that category.
So, without further ado, here is the first episode of Thinking Out Loud:
I'll be posting new episodes daily, and you can see the complete list in the Podcast tab above. Links to everything mentioned will be in the episode description.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
