Excited to announce the launch of a brand new podcast on the We Own This Town network entitled Devalued with Mike & Caroline; brought to you by the titular Michael Ackley and Caroline Bowman. The impetus behind the show works great as an explainer for what to expect:
We started this podcast because as two creative people, we wanted to have the conversation in public that every creative person is having in private: How do I make it? What is ‘making it?’ Why bother creating anything at all? What is my work worth? Should I let the rest of the world define the value of my work?
This series is all about exploring these questions. Our intention is to give you a Roadmap, a Guide, and some encouragement to continue to live a creative life through open-hearted conversation with incredible people.
Being a creative person and tackling the hardships of running a business are very disparate headspaces to exist in. Writing and recording an album is not at all the same as releasing and promoting that album. The same applies to the fine arts and just about any creatively fueled endeavor.
Mike & Caroline will be having honest conversations with wide range of musicians, fine artists, business folks and anyone involved with struggling with these questions. It’s not easy to figure out how to navigate these realms if we don’t ever talk about it. So, let’s talk about it!
The first episode is a doozy and will be released in early July. Give that teaser a listen and then subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon Music, Stitcher, Overcast or anywhere you listen to podcasts.
