Hugh and Stef take a call from Jason White, co-founder and executive creative director at Leviathan. Jason shares his experiences with being a super-talented artist, the pressures faced by those in leadership roles, imposter syndrome, and learning how to power through all that to get to success!
Hugh tells Stefan the story of a consultation for a new product launch. The consultation was to come up with ideas to support the launch. In keeping with the original theme of this podcast, those ideas went nowhere.
Hugh and Stef are joined by Kim Alpert, creative strategist and founder/director at Make Amazing. In a conversation that spans everything from risk aversion to ice sculptures, they’ll explore the highs and lows of being a modern creative professional.
Hugh and Stef are joined by Mike Heneghan, an Irish writer who shares his idea for a story that deals with the fallout from the House of the Mouse’s widespread acquisition of intellectual properties. Mike also jams with our hosts on some ideas from previous episodes—like A.R.K, and ahem, “Handiwork“—and introduces us to a frightening Disney Princess that never was!
In this episode, comedy writer + producer Jon Friedman joins Hugh and Stef to talk about his hilarious work. In particular, Jon recounts the tale of “The Rejection Show“, Jon’s live comedic event where his guests—comedians, cartoonists, TV writers, etc.—explored their rejected material.
We highly recommend you check out Jon’s YouTube channel, where he regularly replaces disgraced celebrities with an adorable alien, adds horror-synth to TV favourites, and creates fantastic originals!
