This episode is titled something like 5 tips for embracing your inner weird, and creating great work but the real title, the secret title is actually: 5 Lessons From a 6 ft 3.5” Rabbit. So this rabbit I mentioned goes by the name of Harvey, and he is a pooka. (I’m not going to go into it in the episode but you should totally google what is a Pooka …
 
On today's show, I'm having a conversation with Connor Frost, a Musician and Educator, hailing from just outside New York City. He has toured extensively both as a solo act and with his band, Dizzy Bats, throughout the US, as well as internationally, and has self-released seven albums over the last decade. We talk about the fear of taking first ste…
 
This picks up on the thread I started in the recent episode on People Pleasing, when I mentioned our habit to people please stems from our need to bolster our self-esteem, and promised an episode focussing more on that. Since reading the book, "Birth and Death of Meaning" by Ernest Becker, I have a lot of new ideas about self-esteem and about “fitt…

According to the good ol Merriam-Webster: “A ritual is a sequence of activities involving gestures, words, actions, or objects, performed in a sequestered place and according to a set sequence.” Whatever it is, ritual can be seen in a wide variety of symbolic behaviours and are incredibly common regardless of where - or when - you are on the earth.…
 
On today's show, I'm having a conversation with Peter Limberg, creator of the Stoa, an online space, "where we can gather and talk about what matters most right now, at the razor’s edge." I absolutely loved having this opportunity to talk to Peter about what it means to live truthfully, facing the unknowingness, and - a pet topic of mine - the Daim…
 
In this week's episode of the Creative Introvert, I'm exploring my changing definition of WHY, but also: what happens when your WHY (reason to do/be whatever it is you do/are) needs to change. What happens when thought you had a WHY and it’s sort of... stopped working? POWERED BY PATREON This podcast is made possible only by means of my generous su…
 
Are you a "people pleaser"? This is something that I hear creative introverts say a LOT about themselves, and I thought it was time to tackle this in today's episode. I cover why people pleasing isn't necessarily a bad thing, as well as what happens when it gets out of control - and what to try in order to remedy that. POWERED BY PATREON This podca…

You might have heard of the concept of a Muse before. Even if you haven’t considered it in the way I’ll speak of it today, you’ll have said it: amusement, bemused, museum, music I argue it’s more than just mere entertainment - we’re speaking about something that captivates us - like a great work of art in a museum or the first time you heard your f…
 
Today's podcast guest, Azhelle Wade, has worked in the toy industry for over 10 years with companies like Toys R Us, Horizon Group USA, and now Creative Kids, as the VP of Brand and Product. Azhelle launched The Toy Coach when she noticed that too many inventors attend toy shows or pitch meetings with “half baked” ideas that they’d spent too much m…
 
This episode of The Creative Introvert has come about from my personal, recent experience with "re-branding" (I also cover why I'm so averse to that word) and the tips I have for you, if you're feeling like you have outgrown your current "brand" and want to give it a refresh. I've also made a handy dandy little pdf guide to guide you through the st…
 
This is a bit of a different episode of the Creative Introvert… I’m going to share the recording of my recent monthly astrology forecast meetups with you. Already I can here many of you skipping this podcast, I know not everyone will be into this – I’m sharing it for those who are and for those who are maybe a bit astro-curious… I know before I got…
 
We need to discern what works from what doesn’t, what we’re going for and whether or not what we’ve done hits the mark. It’s built into our genetic code or something. We are discriminating creatures, all living beings are - and when we fail, it can mean the difference between life and death. Naturally it’s a big deal to us. But "bad" judgement is *…
 
Today I'm talking with Scott Stroud about how we can use our imagination to unlock our creativity, find meaning and basically feel like we can take on the world. Scott works with various types of individuals and teams from artists to software developers, managers to medical professionals, and every day normal people navigate their own language and …
 
“Loneliness is as much a reality of life as night and rain and thunder, and it can be lived creatively, as any other experience. So I say, let there be loneliness, for where there is loneliness there is also love, and where there is suffering, there also is joy.” ~ Clark Moustakas In today's episode I'm going to be taking a deeper dive into the sub…
 
Why am I talking about dragons? Well... these fearsome creatures have become quite a dominant part of my inner landscape over the past year or so, and I think it's high time they get some recognition through my creative work. I also feel there's a lot we can learn from our dragon friends, from coping with anxiety to finding your buried creative tre…
 
I’ve been thinking a LOT about calling. What we’re destined for. This idea of a path that we’re meant to walk and if we just figure out what that is, we’ll be happy. My problem is, that I - and maybe you too - had been convinced that our calling is something like: shaping the universe around us to meet our desires. Oh, and that when it’s shaped jus…
 
Today I’m tackling a topic I’ve been musing over for some time now. Maybe even years at this point. I’ve also had people - clients, listeners of the podcast, people in the League - all asking about this, and quite frankly I find myself asking questions about it regularly too. The mysterious topic is: intuition. Now, like with all of these episodes,…
 
Studies have shown that people would rather definitely get an electric shock now than maybe be shocked later, and show greater nervous-system activation when waiting for an unpredictable shock (or other unpleasant stimulus) than an expected one. I think we can all agree that uncertainty is something we all want to avoid, and we can go to extreme le…
 
This episode of the Creative Introvert is all about evolution. As in, the evolution of YOU, your work, your life, your... you. I'm going to share with you some of the changes that have been occurring in my primary creative project (THIS!) as well as what you can expect from upcoming Creative Introvert shows. I'm also going to share with you a proce…
 
On today's show I have Julia Bainbridge of the Lonely Hour podcast to talk to us about the loneliness epidemic, what it means to experience loneliness (even if you're an introvert), the challenges of isolation we face in the age we live in, and some thoughts for living with loneliness. POWERED BY PATREON This podcast is made possible only by means …
 
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” ~ Dr. Seuss That's the quote that prompted today's episode of the Creative Introvert... But it turned into an hour+ of me talking about all sorts, from Jung's model of the Psyche to excavating the Shadow to communicating with your Daimon and much more! Prepar…
 
Today I have Karen Curry Parker on to talk about Human Design, a system you may have heard of before. I found Karen's work when trying to decipher the mysterious chart that had been generated (you can get yours here) and was so grateful for her way of explaining things. We talk about the five different types that are described in Human Design, the …
 
One of the biggest challenges creative introverts face, at least the ones I encounter is, self doubt. And this is what I'm seeing as the root cause as well as the fuel for what I'm calling "The Cycle of Stuckness." If you feel stuck in any way on your creative path, this episode is for you!

Today I’m interviewing my co-host on my other podcast, The Seeker and the Skeptic, the marvellous Rebecca Fox. If you haven’t checked our show out already, we’re basically exploring all sorts of belief systems, people and places who tend to divide public opinion. So far we’ve investigated ayahuasca – first hand – we’ve been to an alleged UFO sighti…
 
In this video I'm talking about the value of taking breaks, treating rest time as recovery time, and simple yet effective ways we can integrate breaks into our lives for increased enthusiasm, joy and creativity. FOR THE FULL SHOW NOTES: https://www.thecreativeintrovert.com/break If you’re interested in booking an astrology reading, you can find out…
 
On today’s show I’ve got Claire Summers here who is a fellow digital nomad and a fellow Brit and I knew I had to get her on after learning so much from her blog, her books and as I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my year of travel, I thought it would be wise to get a pro in to talk more in depth about life on the road. We discuss… • How Cl…
 
Today I’m talking about the stages of creativity and how we might work with them in a really practical way in our lives. I’ll also be launching monthly Creative Moon Circles as of TODAY! These will consist of me talking a little bit about the particular full moon we’re experiencing, how it might play into your creative work, and provide you with so…
 
Mark Rogers is a Portland-based artist whose work I've been obsessed with for quite some time. I was keen to chat to Mark because I was so curious about his creative process (when you see his work you'll understand why!) and the journey he's been on in becoming a professional artist. We discuss: • Using our imagination as “grown ups” • Thought form…
 
What is creativity anyway? What does it mean to create, to be creative? Is it something we all have? Can we all do it? Can we all be it? And if so, can we become more creative? Is there some kind of definitive measuring stick for creativity? Now that’s the INTJ in me speaking, but really I think it’s a great starting point for a juicy episode of th…

Next to her non-fiction work, she is currently working on a YA urban fantasy series, and she writes LGBTQIA* sexy romance with Sìne Màiri Ní Ailpín under a pen name.

Today I want to talk to you about wanting things, all the things - and why we simply can’t get what we want. Ever. Sorry to burst your bubble. I promise there will be something redeeming and positive in today’s message: I want to prove to you that it can actually be a GOOD thing - it might just take a while for us to get to it. It’s worth it though…
 
Today’s guest, Josh Ryan is a designer and illustrator based out of Houston, Texas. He specializes in creating products and visuals that connect people through shared experience, emotional connection, and quirky humor. Josh’s work has been featured on HuffPost, Forbes.com, Houstonia Magazine, the Houston Chronicle, and - most importantly - his mom’…
 
This maybe the podcast I’ve done most research for in the history of the Creative Introvert, and not just book research. It’s a topic that’s been brewing somewhere in my mind, whether it’s consciously or otherwise, and I finally have my ideas in a place where I’m ready to share and fairly confident in my ability to give you something that’s genuine…
 
On today's episode I chat with Heather Hollick all about what networking really is and how to build real relationships especially if you're an introvert. We have a super fun conversation talking about: How to help your friends to understand your introversion How Heather learnt networking skills and reinvented the meaning of networking in the proces…
 
This is something that’s taken me quite a few years and many, many chats with various creative introverts to discover: not all tips to be productive work for me or you or anyone for that matter. Yeah, I know. Mind = blown. Maybe you already knew that. But maybe you didn’t and you were like me, wondering why the fuck the advice of this hyper-product…
 
Today’s podcast guest is a business and marketing consultant and strategist - and one who has a refreshingly different take on those things that as creative introverts we tend to want to avoid - namely that sales, marketing and general putting-self-out-there piece. We have a super fun conversation talking about: Why it's okay (and even preferable) …
 
If you remember back to 2018, my theme for that year was FUN. I attempted my year of fun, trying one new fun thing a week, and I learned a lot in the process about what I call fun. This year I decided to focus on… adventure. I’m still not sure what I mean by adventure, but this is what the dictionary says: : an undertaking usually involving danger …
 
Today’s guest is someone who I’ve been meaning to have on the podcast since… before it even existed. Andy Mort is the host of the Gentle Rebel Podcast, a musician, an undertaker and someone who is very much on my wave length (fellow INTJ too!) We talk about: • The challenges introvert musicians face • The stigma attached to sensitivity in our socie…
 
In this episode of the Creative Introvert I'm asking the question: What's Your Calling? In my experience, there is NOTHING as powerful as knowing what your calling is for fuelling your actions. Willpower is something we have to manage, like our energy. Like a muscle, it get’s tired out. It gets drained by making decisions, by stress, by lack of sle…
 
According to today's podcast guest, being single does not mean being broken, lonely, or desperate. And whether or not you already knew that, it can feel like society at large is sending us another message. I rarely talk about matters of relationships on the podcast - mostly because I'm certainly no expert there - but I've been eager to broach the t…
 
Everything we've experienced to this point plays a part in our overall story. And they don't all have to flow together neatly into some overused Heroes Journey (though, it is overused for a reason, I'll grant you.) The story I most often tell is how I left my job. I use this to illustrate how vital it was for me when I finally started paying attent…
 
Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Lauren Sapala, author, blogger, and writing coach. I’ve been following Lauren for quite some time now on the Intro-Twittersphere and have found her to be a fount of advice on writing, marketing your writing and doing it all as a highly sensitive, creative introvert. After reading her book Firefly Magic a…
 
Long before I started the Creative Introvert I had come across the term creative block. It was probably at art college I first had a taste of it. The solution? Didn’t seem to exist. It wasn’t the kind of question I even considered asking my lecturers about. Over the years I’ve got to know creative block even more intimately, and whilst I’m sure we’…
 
Today I have arguably the most controversial guest I’ve had on the show (don’t worry it’s no one political) and I say controversial because of his take on introversion. And it’s not just any old take on introversion: today’s guest is a lot more qualified than I am or many other professional online introverts are to talk about this stuff: Scott Barr…
 
I’ve just completed Stoic Week! What the heck is Stoic Week you ask? It’s an online event in which people from all over the world attempt to live like a Stoic for seven days. It’s run every year by the Modern Stoic and basically provides a framework for everyone to join in with, for free, for one week. I have another podcast that dives much deeper …
 
Today’s podcast guest is someone I have a scary amount in common with and is someone I first spoke to over two years ago, and I’m so glad we’ve kept in touch. Victoria or VK is a true multipassionate, multitalented entrepreneur. She’s an excellent writer, and her purpose is to provide insight + support that cultivates your curiosity + confidence to…
 
Today I’d like to talk to you about WFHing - ok, translation: working from home. This is something I’ve been doing since 2013 and it’s given me an incredible amount of freedom I wouldn’t trade for the world. I can pick when I work, for the most part, where I work: as long as I have wifi - and how I work. For many introverts, particularly those of t…
 
Today's podcast guest is a writer, introvert blogger, a self-taught marketer… and a life-long learner. He also claims that his bio changes about as frequently as he eats Nando’s chicken... so I guess this could be different by the time I publish our chat! Jas is also an INFP, an HSP (which we'll be discussing in depth on today's show) and a multi-p…
