Episode Notes

For this very special episode, June, Isaac, and Rumaan answer listener questions about creative work. A video producer wants to get better at reacting to negative feedback. A musician wants to know how to avoid ripping off her heroes. Plus, Rumaan answers a question he’s frankly tired of hearing from aspiring writers.

Send your questions about creativity and any other feedback to or give us a call at (304) 933-WORK. That’s (304) 933-9675.

Podcast production by Cameron Drews.
