Chase is honestly the best host I ever ever heard. He always asks exactly what I’m thinking and exactly what I want to know about his guests. I can’t get enough. This is a MUST LISTEN!

Creativity + insight

Chase has great topics, great guests, and good conversation! Definitely geared toward the creative, but Chase often has guests on that everyone could find interesting. He asks thoughtful questions and brings a wealth of his own experiences to the conversations. Chase has this authenticity and a quest for insight/knowledge that really shows through. For me this podcast isn’t only a source of reference, advice, community, but a place where I can discover new artists, photographers, and authors. Just listen. You won’t be sorry.

Rank #1: Brené Brown: Daring Greatly to Unlock Your Creativity

Podcast cover
Read more

You guys know how much I love Brené. She’s been the show multiple times-- in fact, I think she holds the record for most number of times on the show. Her philosophies on fear, vulnerability, and courage are so so powerful and when you realize how these things are acting in your life, you can unlock a whole new level of understanding around the things that have been holding you back.

Today I’m going into the archives to share her first ever conversation with me on the show three years ago. It’s not available here on the podcast and it’s so valuable I wanted you could take this talk on the go. If you’ve heard this before, you already know re-listening to Brené is never a bad thing. So many ah ha moments in this talk and we waste no time getting into it.

In this episode,

* Brené talks about how as a culture we’re raised to believe that vulnerability is weakness and so acting brave is being strong. As a society, this attitude creates a bravado - a sort of “postering, fake bravery”.

* Brené shared something that, for me, has stuck with me all these years and that’s, as creatives, we need to and get to decide whose opinions matter and whose don’t. She pulls out a short list of the people whose opinions matter to her, literally from her wallet.

* We talk about how you heal when someone kicks you while you’re down, and Brené talks a lot about building a support structure, whether that’s a therapist, coach, or your community. Your support team is a huge resource, even your greatest heroes relied on their communities to find and maintain success.

Enjoy!

Rank #2: Ramit Sethi: Change Your Habits, Change Your Life

Podcast cover
Read more

How many times have you told yourself “I know I should _____, but [insert excuse here]”? And how much progress would you have made toward your goals if you were able to silence that voice and get rid of the excuses that keep you from putting in the work that you know you should? If you’re like most of us, you’d rather not answer those questions— but as you’ll learn from this great conversation with Ramit Sethi, the answer is simple: change your habits, and you’ll change your life.

In our talk we discuss: * what separates the best from those who want to get rich quick: patience, discipline, and sacrifice * be more comfortable saying no and focus on a couple things you can be great at * carving out weekly time in the schedule to think big. think strategy. * and Ramit confesses something that few other legends of his stature will confess… namely about how he might only have 1-2 big ideas per year, but you need to go through the mess to get to those gems

... and much much more.

Enjoy!

Rank #3: Become A Master Communicator w/ Vanessa Van Edwards

Podcast cover
Read more

Vanessa Van Edwards bills herself as a “behavioral investigator” - what that means is that she is absolutely amazing at unpacking what makes people do the things they do and turning that into proven, actionable techniques for others to hone their own people skills. She’s written for publications like CNN, Fast Company and forbes and is the author of the brand new (and incredibly good) book “Captivate: The Science Of Succeeding With People.” You’ve heard me talk many times about the critical importance of soft skills in building a successful career as a creator, and Vanessa is THE authority on this mega-important topic.

Today on the podcast,

* She talks about the difference between decoding and encoding emotional signals and how to apply that idea - for example, monitoring the micro-emotions that you are encoding with your body language and facial expressions (if you suffer from RBF this segment is for you!)

* Tons of amazing little hacks that will help you hone your people skills. As just one example that takes literally just a few seconds, when you see a closeup of someone’s face on tv, try making that same face - it will help develop your ability to feel empathy because you’ll find that you start feeling the same emotions that they’re feeling

* Vanessa is also a master negotiator, and gets into some ninja negotiating techniques. You’ve heard me say that you need to raise your rates and these are the specific tactics you should be using to do so - this is the kind of specific, tactical stuff that I love

Rank #4: Transform Your Consciousness w/ Jason Silva

Podcast cover
Read more

If you’re familiar with Jason then you know he’s an incredibly unique human. And if you’re not, then I'll do my best-- but you really just need to check out his work. He’s a brilliant and insanely insightful creator whose work sits at the intersection of philosophy, personal development and film much like my own work. You may know him as the host of Nat Geo’s “Brain Games,” from his short film series “Shots Of Awe” or his latest show “Origins” which is in its debut season. It’s really tough to put a label on his work, so instead of trying I’m simply going to echo his words - he calls them “espresso shots of philosophy” and while that’s a bit of a mouthful it’s also a very accurate characterization.

Today on the podcast,

* We talk about how Jason got his start on Al Gore’s cable channel Current TV

* He explains why the "one man band" approach is the best way for him to work and how technology has made that possible for an entire generation of creators

* In the tail end of this episode we get into a bunch of heady, somewhat esoteric stuff that you will absolutely love if you’re a fan of Jason’s YouTube stuff - everything from transhumanism to psychedelics to metaphysics

Enjoy!

Rank #5: Seth Godin: How to Do Work That Matters for People Who Care

Podcast cover
Read more

Legend alert!!! Seth Godin is a force of nature and a shaman to so many creatives and entrepreneurs. He has taught and inspired millions of entrepreneurs, marketers, leaders, and fans from all walks of life, via his blog, online courses, lectures, and his 18 (yes, count them - 18!) bestselling books. If you’ve been following his work, you’ll know he’s one most brilliant marketing minds of our time. Seth’s latest book, This Is Marketing, helps reframe how thinking small is the new big! More precisely how we will find success if we at first make our products - whatever they are — for the smallest viable audience.  Seth believes your most generous and insightful work needs this help - YOUR HELP - finding the people it’s meant to serve....

If there has been a guest that can speak directly to that little voice in your head - and help you get this marketing stuff RIGHT - it’s Seth. Pure sage. And purely actionable.  

In this episode:

  • The riskiest thing you can do it make average stuff for average people and pitch it to the masses. Instead, focus on the smallest viable audience (e.g. your patrons at table 4 of your restaurant) and bring magic to them, they will come back and they will bring their friends.
  • If you try to please everyone, you’ll stop pleasing the people you care about. Seth shares some strategies on how to focus on the people that care about your work and better serve them.
  • We all want to do work that matters for people who care. But we trip ourselves up thinking we need to become an evil marketer and spam the world. Fortunately, the best way to achieve your marketing goals is to help others become who they want to be.
  • and much more…!

Rank #7: Brené Brown: Rising Strong in a Digital World

Podcast cover
Read more

She calls herself a shame and vulnerability researcher, she’s a storyteller, and has one of the most popular ted talks of all time. Brené Brown studies and talks about subjects we’re all intimately familiar with, but most of us rarely discuss. She has deeply, deeply inspired me. She’s a life changer, and a game changer and she also has 3 NYT Best Sellers in the top 10, including her latest book, Rising Strong.

I love this conversation with Brené and we go deep into the things we face as creatives and are working to make sense of. For example, we get into failure, dealing with critics, and how to handle those gremlins in your head telling you you’re not good enough.

Enjoy!

Rank #8: How to Build Real Confidence with Mel Robbins

Podcast cover
Read more

Mel Robbins is the most booked female speaker in the world, an American on-air CNN commentator and television host, contributing editor for Success magazine and author of The 5-Second Rule. Her TED Talk around the 5-second Rule is a simple framework to turn inaction into action and has garnered over 10 million view.

Mel has been on the show previously, and this week, I wanted to share a portion of a class she gave on CreativeLive on building self-confidence. Confidence is an important part of success and when those 3AM gremlins creep in, we all need a set of tools we can use to help give us the courage to put ourselves out there, and try something we’re not 100% sure about. Mel helps us unpack the what confidence is, how to build it, and gives us 5 habits that enable us keep us on track.

What I love about Mel is not only is she insanely inspirational she is also super super actionable. I love to share her content when I can and today is a lesson on self confidence that we all need to hear.

Rank #9: Tim Ferriss on Creativity, Simplicity and the Power of Audio

Podcast cover
Read more

You know him, you love him, you’ve heard him here before… today’s podcast guest is A DEAR friend and a legend by any measure. It’s the one and only, Mr. Tim Ferriss!  Author of five #1 New York Times best sellers, including his most recent Tribe of Mentors, star of his own TV show The Tim Ferriss Experiment, and host of one of the most popular podcasts in the world, The Tim Ferriss Show which has over 300 million downloads to date. In today's episode, we focus on Tim’s shift from writing as a central pillar of creation to a world where his podcast is central to most of the other media he creates (books, videos, blog posts etc). To say that this episode is “rich” with insight would be a dramatic understatement. In this episode we tear into… - WHO are his epic guests, how does he choose and land them? - WHY is he focused on his podcast? There’s some really good reasons... - HOW he does it…exactly what’s his workflow and key equipment - WHEN / where and all the rest of it ;)  Tim also has mastered the ability to set a goal and break it down into small actions that make insanely huge goals seem reasonable. So we get tactical on goals he sets for himself around the show…and his life.  We see a rarely before POV heard from Tim (I think he went deep here because we’ve been homies for about a decade) about his overarching life perspective about doing the things that bring you joy, and doing it in a way that's easy.  So whether you're a classic “Tim” fan, interested in starting or growing your own podcast, OR just simply looking to do more of the things you love, this show is a must. 

You’ll also learn:

  • Tim doesn’t start many projects with a simple “how much money will I make from this?” A better question that he asks himself to vet the quality of his next endeavor is “what relationships can I develop and what skills will I learn in accomplishing this project?”
  • If you wait until you’re ready, you’re never going to start. Tim didn’t have a name for his podcast, didn’t know how he was going to monetize it, and admittedly knew nothing about the technical involvements of starting a podcast. He just had to jump in.
  • The most important piece of the puzzle is being different. You will not find success in a crowded marketplace (like podcasting) by being 10% better.
  • We couldn’t have Tim on the show without talking about time efficiency. Tim breaks down into deep detail the how and why he batch records his episodes and how he structures his week around recording. Regardless of what kind of content you’re creating, Tim shares so many useful tactics that you can poach.

Enjoy!

Rank #10: How To Stop Waiting And Start Doing w/ Roman Mars

Podcast cover
Read more

Roman Mars is the host of the wildly popular design podcast “99% Invisible” and has been called “the Ira Glass of design.” With several hundred episodes in the can over its six years in existence, it’s covered everything from “Unsung Icons of Soviet Design” to Love Park’s place in skateboarding history to DIY space suits, all through the same lens of - as he says - “telling stories that make you notice and appreciate the world in a different way,” drawing attention to the world of design around us that is 99% invisible (hence the title of the show). He’s also the creator of the world’s most popular design-focused TED Talk and co-founder of the podcast collective Radiotopia.

Today on the podcast,

* He says that “lack of success gives you a certain amount of freedom” - I love this because I see so many people stressing about the fact that they aren’t a household name yet - embrace it! This is your chance to try crazy, cool stuff - and if you mess it up then it doesn’t matter because nobody’s watching.

* We get into something I talked about recently on this show which is finding your personal style - he has a great way of putting it: try on as many things as possible until you find your voice.

* He gets into what he’s learned as the show has scaled and relies not just on him but on a team. This is tough for many creators who are super comfortable doing things alone and have to make a lot of adjustments once it becomes a team effort.

Enjoy!

Rank #11: Start Before You’re Ready with Humans of New York Brandon Stanton

Podcast cover
Read more

If you don’t know Brandon, you definitely know his work. Brandon is the creator of Humans of New York which has accumulated over 20 million followers worldwide and turned into two NYT-bestselling books (Humans of New York and Humans of New York: Stories). It has also spawned an entire genre of similar blogs. Hundreds of aspiring documentarians have followed in HONY’s footsteps, telling the stories of countries, cities, and communities across the world.

During a PhotoWeek session we had at CreativeLive, Brandon shared his story from getting fired at a job he hated to selling everything to move to New York to try to be a photographer. Brandon shares what he has learned along the journey of interviewing thousands of people and how they have shaped his storytelling.

If you love this episode, you might also want to check out the video version of this talk to see some of the photos he shares during his talk. You can do that by logging onto creativelive.com and searching “Brandon Stanton”.

In today's episode:

  • There’s a subtle but crucial mind shift that needs to happen if you want mental freedom. You need to consciously decide what you’re going to spend your brain power on and consciously decide what you’re not. Focus on the things that make you feel the way you want to feel and do the things you want to be doing.
  • You can plan all you want, but you won’t know if your plan works until you start executing it. The original Humans of New York plan looks nothing like what the project has turned into today.
  • Choosing the work that you do is a better goal than not working at all. Following your dreams is hard work, but success is getting to spend every day doing what you want to be doing. Worth it.

Rank #12: Ramit Sethi: Make More Money

Podcast cover
Read more

No one has single-handedly given me better insight about the business side of art than the New York Times bestselling author, Ramit Sethi. He’s a business savant, mindset master, habit king, and money maker.

Ramit is a regular on the show by now, and this episode is the first one we did together. It was such a hit and I still get so much positive feedback on how powerful his advice is that we had to share it with you on the podcast. Our conversation is packed full of both mindset shifts as well as tried and true tactical advice so you can earn more money. And we’re not talking nickels more. We’re talking 10x more. Give it a listen and give the techniques a try.

In this episode:

* If you can learn to understand your client, find solutions they need, and communicate in their language, price becomes a triviality.  Show your future clients you’ve done the work by using “the briefcase technique.”

* We talk about negotiating. If you’re a freelancer, are you getting paid by the hour? We need to change that to value-based pay…

* Ramit shares how to, step by step, land your next pitch, freelance gig, double your rates, make more money.  I’ve always felt very competent in this world, but Ramit’s knowledge helped me drive a step change into my growth around the business of creativity.

Rank #13: How To Get The Press + Public To Notice Your Work w/ Ryan Holiday

Podcast cover
Read more

Ryan is an author, entrepreneur and one of the sharpest marketing minds out there. He got his start working for bestselling authors like Tucker Max and Robert Greene and has since worked with folks like Tony Robbins, Tim Ferriss, Evan Carmichael, and John Grisham among many others - and he’s written 5 books now including TWO last year: Ego Is The Enemy and The Daily Stoic. This episode was originally recorded back in 2012 when he was promoting “Trust Me I’m Lying,” which was his first book - releasing an audio version now as many of you have requested.

Today on the podcast,

* Why Ryan dropped out of college at 19 when he realized that he had better opportunities - specifically to go work for American Apparel, where he was Director of Marketing during the era in which they were on fire and really driving a huge part of youth culture

* He says “You are your own chief marketing officer” - a great way to capture something that only becomes more true with time, which is that creators have an imperative to PROMOTE their work in addition to MAKING the work. If you listened to my interview with Levar Burton a while back he talked a lot about this too.

* There’s also a ton of super practical, hands-on tactics on how you can get organic coverage of your work - for example how American Apparel got tons of blogs and magazines to run their ads, but not as ADS but as part of editorial content. This is something almost all creatives struggle with and ask me about, and we get deep into it.

Podcast cover

Neil Strauss is a seven-time NYT best selling author. He became an international celebrity and an accidental hero to men after writing The Game, where he went undercover in a secret society of pickup artists for two years.

If that wasn’t enough Neil is an award winning columnist at the New York Times and Rolling Stone, for which he’s well-known for earning the trust of some of the most guarded and secretive celebrities in the world.

Today on the podcast...

* We dig into vulnerability. Neil says the things that you’re most afraid to share are probably the things you to. If you’re feeling it, other people will too.

* We also talk about the inner critic - the programmed messages you carry that aren’t true.

* And we tackle fear: where it comes from, and how your best work can come from it.

Rank #15: Elle Luna: Should vs Must

Podcast cover
Read more

If you’ve ever asked yourself - as almost all of us have - “how can I find and follow my calling and my passion,” then you’re going to get a lot out of this conversation. Elle has a book describing her own search for an answer to this question which is called “The Crossroads of Should And Must” which explores the tension between the expectations that parents, friends, and culture put on us (what she calls “should”) and who we are and what we know to be true (what she calls “must”). 

Today on the podcast,

* She breaks work down into 3 categories: jobs, careers and callings. So many of us are stuck in one of the first 2, looking for a way to get to the 3rd.

* Accountability comes up again - a common theme in a lot of these conversations as a really key part of the creative process, to help get us across the finish line and actually COMPLETE our ideas. For Elle, the key is attaching a human to it - she says “if someone I love is counting on me to deliver something, I won’t let them down.”

* Another familiar theme that comes up again is structure- some creatives resist structure, but I am a firm and passionate believer that structure doesn’t hinder creativity, it helps it. Elle talks about how she uses structure-- one of her little hacks is setting a kitchen timer in 17 minute increments, and during that 17 minutes she can’t deviate from the task at hand.

Podcast cover
Read more

You know Gregory Heisler, or at the very least, you've seen his work. Gregory is a prolific photographer best known for his 70 cover portraits for TIME Magazine and has graced the pages of Life, Esquire, Fortune, GQ, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, and The New York Times Magazine. 

We recently had the pleasure of hosting Gregory in our CreativeLive studios to present his talk on embracing one’s own uniqueness. Now, I attend a lot of keynotes, speeches, and presentations. Not often do I stand in the audience yelling “PREACH!” like I was during Gregory’s presentation. His thoughts on prioritizing the expression of your own voice, vision and style over technique is spot on and follows the career path of so many professional and prolific creators in my circle. Listen in, take heed, and let me know what you think. If you'd like to see the video version of this talk, you can watch it for FREE here: https://cr8.lv/2v39iS2

A few topics from this episode,

* Making what you can’t help but make is how you find your own unique style and it helps you get paid for your art. It’ll be easy because you can’t help but make it anyways, it’ll be your best work because it’s what comes naturally to you, and people will hire you to make more of what you can’t help but make anyways.

* The three main components of making art are vision, technique, and style. Too many of us get hung up on the technique, but vision and style is what differentiates you from the rest of the pack. Lean into your own vision and develop confidence in your style.

* If you want to be a professional creative, you’ve got to get comfortable being uncomfortable. Making art is an uncertain path and there will be days where you may not be able to pay the rent or even make a good photograph, but trust and own the process.

Enjoy!

Rank #17: Austin Kleon: Productivity is Overrated

Podcast cover
Read more

Austin Kleon likes to call himself “a writer who draws.”  He is the best selling author of three illustrated books (Newspaper Blackout, Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work), and one of the most insightful voices on the topic of creativity. He’s been featured on media institutions like NPR’s Morning Edition, Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and PBS Newshour and speaks for organizations such as Pixar, Google, SXSW, TEDx, and The Economist.

In today’s episode we talk about:

*  Creativity & creative “genius”. Creative genius can be as much about your network (and how you use it) as it is about your work. It’s by looking around and seeing what people are doing, and also what they are not doing that new ideas form.

* We also talk about morning routines. One of the things that Austin likes to do, which I also subscribe is to, is do the creative stuff first.

* We also talk a bit about productivity. There’s a lot of pressure to hustle. He challenges that idea by saying to not focus on the hustle but focus on doing good work.

Enjoy!

Rank #19: Overcome Fear & Self-Doubt w/ W. Kamau Bell

Podcast cover
Read more

W. Kamau Bell is a veteran standup comedian, the creator and star of the hit CNN show “United Shades Of America” which is kicking off its 2nd season, host of a couple podcasts, one of which has probably the best title of any podcast ever - “Denzel Washington Is The Greatest Actor Of All Time Period” - and author of a bestselling book among many other things he’s been part of over the course of his career. The word prolific does not even begin to describe this man.

Today on the podcast,

* How he went from his humble beginnings doing open mics in coffee shops and bars to getting his first TV show

* He shares some super candid stuff about how despite appearing unflappable, on the inside - as he says - “it’s all flaps.” 

* You’ve probably heard me talk about the idea of “create the work you want to be paid to create,” and Kamau has an amazing story about how he applied that exact idea

Enjoy!

Rank #20: The Things All Creators Must Know + Believe

Podcast cover
Read more

One of my most popular, widely shared, and (so I'm told) most impactful blog posts is one I did a few years back called "The 10 Things All Creatives (That's You) Must Know," a collection of hard-won lessons I've learned from my 20+ years in the trenches as a creator. And although it's a few years old I feel more confident than ever about the timeless value of these lessons -- and so this week on the podcast I'm bringing you an audio version of that blog post. Here's a sneak preview of what you can look forward to:

* Experts aren’t the answer. * Clients cannot tell you what they need. * Don’t aim for ‘better’, aim for ‘different’. * Big challenges create the best work. * Aesthetic sensibilities actually matter. * Simple is good. * Make mistakes, learn quickly. * “Value” is different from “price.” * A-Gamers work with A-Gamers. * Real artists create.

Enjoy!
