This job is pretty lonely, I share a studio with someone, which helps, but when I’m drawing It’s usually in a room by myself. I’ve been listening to posdasts for a few years now, there are so many amazing shows avaialable now totally for free, and on demand, that it is mind blowing. Here’s a few that I use to keep my mind stimulated while I draw:
The Long Shot Podcast - With Eddie Pepitone, Sean Conroy, Jamie Flam, and Amber Kenny
I can’t get enough of Eddie Pepitone, I’m new to this one, but I like it so far.
The Dana Gould Hour - Dana Gould is a terriffic comedian, and he used to be one of the head writers for the Simpsons. It’s very well produced, and funny. There’s a gritty B movie undertone to this show that I really love. Eddie Pepitone is on this a bunch too.
WTF with Marc Maron (of course) This show is pretty popular, I love hearing artists talk about what they do, and Maron is a great interviewer.
Bullseye with Jesse Thorne - This is the show that got me hooked on podcasts. I absoultely love it. It’s fun, and they’ve introduced me to lots of awesome stuff.
The Nerdist - More great interviews, and the “Hostfull” episodes are just as fun
Illustration Underground - I used to listen to these two guys years ago on different podcasts before I started working professionally. This is a new show , and there’s only a few episode. It’s pretty good so far.
Adventures in Design - Speaking of good Illustration / Design podcasts… This is absolutely my new favorite. The two hosts of this show, are super talented illustrators, the show is entertaining, and informative. I just wish there where more episodes.
Radiolab This show is wonderful, it is beautifully produced, and its its inspiring. Also, you’ll learn something, probably.
I listen to a bunch more, and I’ll post more in the future. If you know of any good ones, please let me know.
