Q & A’s with Lisa from The Adventurous Creative
When did you start podcasting?
I did a trial run through Blog Talk Radio a couple of years ago, but I stopped when I realised that they like to own your content.
When people kept telling me they were still listening to those shows (2 years later!!) I knew it was time to start a real podcast. So I launched The Adventurous Creator about a month ago.
Why did you start podcasting?
I wanted to have the conversations that no-one else is having.
People keep telling me there is something about my voice and the way I explain things.
Being primarily a writer, I was seeking a different outlet, preferably one that didn’t require hair and makeup everyday. Podcasting was the obvious choice!!
What’s your show about?
Creating your ideas… being creative. Allowing ease into your creative space.
What if the adventure of creating is about going beyond where you’ve been?
What if writer’s block is a myth? What if procrastination doesn’t exist? What if your 50 seemingly unrelated ideas could become one brilliant project? What if there is no ‘creative block’ that cannot be changed if you are willing to play with new possibilities?
“The Adventurous Creator’ Podcast with Lisa Murray invites a new conversation around creating in unconventional and unpredictable ways.
It’s the end of brainstorming and the start of creating through awareness!
Join us for transformative and nurturing conversations with overwhelmed, stuck or stifled, yet brilliant, people.
Together, we discover the creative-edge clarity you know is possible but haven’t been able to find.
You’ll also be fascinated by interviews with world-leading creators and pioneering entrepreneurs who have very different ways of creating their ideas.
What inspiration can you receive?
What’s your podcasting set-up? Hardware, software, CMS, etc.
Oh wow… it’s definitely still evolving!
I am so clear that I desire better quality everything (not a perfectionist at all!!)
I am hosted via Libsyn. I record via Skype or free conference call HD using a CAD U1 mic. Do my audio edits in Garageband.
I learn something new every week!! This is the part that is the trickiest for me. For a long while it stopped me completely as none of it made sense… grateful for the She Podcasts group in finding out all of the info I needed to start!
How have you promoted your podcast?
So far – in my Love Notes to my email list, on social media, via Soundcloud and iTunes, via my guests. I am going to play with QR codes on Moo cards soon too!
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
It takes more time than I imagined. I’m in the midst of setting up systems so I can outsource everything except the actual interviews and show recordings. I wish I’d had a simple but comprehensive checklist of what pieces needed to be set up in which order.
