Open Source Creative Podcast

Episodes of the Open Source Creative Podcast, a weekly podcast where I ramble about creativity, process, and open source software during my commute.

Listen to me talk, maybe learn a thing or two, vehemently disagree with me, and rejoice at the fact that my clutch pedal no longer squeaks in the background… because I no longer drive a car with manual transmission. Also, fair warning, I tend to use profanity. So if you’re sensitive to that, listen with the volume turned lower.

Intro and outro music was shamelessly pilfered from the very talented Sam Brubaker.

Open Source Creative Podcast #31 – Keeping Your Project Data Safe

This week’s episode is about some critical stuff: making sure that the digital data that we produce doesn’t get lost. So we’re talking back-ups, passwords, and encryption. It may not sound like as fun and exciting of a topic as other things we’ve discussed, but it’s monumentally important. And really, the technical bits of this… Read more »

Open Source Creative Podcast #30 – Let’s Talk about Social Media

Late release this week folks; sorry about that. I have reasons (which I go into during the intro), but no excuses. I’ll have it up at the right time next week. We’re on this week, though, and this week we’re talking about social media networks and the kind of love/hate relationship we have with them…. Read more »

Open Source Creative Podcast #29 – The Making of a Podcast

A fun little meta show this week. This one’s a nuts-and-bolts, step-by-step walk-through of the process I go through each way to deliver podcasty goodness to your earballs. And I do it all with free and open source software. The following is a quick breakdown of each step in the process. You can use it… Read more »

Open Source Creative Podcast #28 – Defeating Comparisonitis

This week we have a more positive (I hope) follow-up to last week’s rant. We’re talking about comparisonitis… that feeling of “I can’t do that” when you see the incredible work of another artist or find out about another person’s level of success in a field similar to yours. I give a little hat-tip to… Read more »

Open Source Creative Podcast #27 – How Not to Discuss New Releases

Missed last week, but the show is back! And boy, oh, boy… this is a ranty one. Short version: we need to change the way that we discuss the new releases of open source software tools. There’s this propensity for wanting to discuss other software or, worse, make gross generalizations about the viability of a… Read more »

Open Source Creative Podcast #24 – 2017 Goals

Happy New Year! Short introduction this week, folks. This episode is all about goals for the coming year. What are your creative goals for the year? What do you want to get done? Part of my goals include continuing to do creative work each day and [try to] post it on the Daily Creative group… Read more »

Open Source Creative Podcast #23 – Making Time

This week’s show is all about making the time you need to produce your creative works. Well… it’s mostly about that. I get to that point by briefly talking about how I read an article on The Digital Reader about a super-cool eink device called the reMarkable. I’m extremely excited about seeing how this device… Read more »

Open Source Creative Podcast #22 – Requesting Features

Hi there! In this episode I talk at length about another little distraction that I’ve had over the last year… a little feature request site for Blender called Right-Click Select. But, that’s just the launch point. What this episode is really about is the best way to make feature requests in an open source software… Read more »
