Podcasts for Creatives | The Jealous Curator: Art for Your Ear by Danielle  Krysa
I’ve been pulling together a list of my favorite podcasts for creatives, and this next podcast is one of my favorite new finds (well, new to me anyway).  The Jealous Curator: Art for Your Ear features relaxed and thought-provoking conversations between host Danielle Krysa (aka The Jealous Curator) and artists and illustrators from around the world.  Danielle has been a speaker at TEDx, PIXAR, Creative Mornings, CreativeLive, and was interviewed for several video segments on Oprah.com. ART FOR YOUR EAR brings you stories from some of my favorite contemporary artists. When I studied Art History, the best part was, well, the gossip. I loved finding out why artists did certain things, what was going on in their personal lives, and behind-the-scenes details about other artists they knew and worked with. This podcast is exactly that … inside-scoop stories from the artsiest people I know. You’ll hear first-hand from these talented, successful, full-time artists (who also happen to be regular people with hilarious stories) BEFORE they’re in the Art History books.” – Danielle (aka The Jealous Curator) One of my favorite episodes is an interview with artist and self-proclaimed “late bloomer” in the art world.  Lisa, now a well renowned artist and illustrator, started her career in education and started dabbling in art in her late 30s.  In the interview they go deep into imposter syndrome, inner critics, and the challenges that self taught and formally educated artists face.  My favorite piece of advice from this interview is to accept that every creative (no matter their achievements or accolades) faces imposter syndrome.  It’s not something we can get through after we reach a certain goal or income level.  It’s something we have to learn to manage and face every time we start a challenging project.
