Most great and successful creatives understand the idea of “what goes in must come out.” Your work is the sum of your inspirations. This inspiration can come from countless channels: nature, conversation, literature, and in the 21st century: podcasts.
There are numerous podcasts out there that inspire creative thought and action. Some with that exact mission, others less direct. Perfect for long car rides, or during basic and thoughtless tasks.
5 Podcasts to Make You More Creative:
Go behind the creative process of your favorite musical artists. Find out their inspirations, motivations, and stories that make up your favorite songs. “Song Exploder is a podcast where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made.” It’s fascinating how detailed some processes are, and how random and miscellaneous others can be.
Some of my favorites:
– Stranger Things Theme Song
– The Killers’ “Rut”
– Chvrches’ “Clearest Blue”
