A podcast that makes sense of how different creators live. I talk to creators that are based here in Cebu or anywhere in the world about how they started their craft and everything that revolves around it. They could be content creators, entrepreneurs, designers, startup founders, artists, software developers, or anyone that creates meaningful stuff! Main interview episodes on Fridays. Creative Tidbits on Wednesdays. Powered by The Company Cebu and Ambidextr.
