Giving Your Right Brain a Regular Workout

Podcast: Violent Femmes’ Brian Ritchie on Creativity

Occupation: Curator (MONA FOMA) and Musician (The Break, Violent Femmes)
Hometown: Milwaukee, North America

Having something interesting to listen to while sketching, hurtling towards a last minute deadline or making a toasted sandwich can help to keep the creative juices going. We recently had the chance to chat with legendary Violent Femmes guitarist and curator of the MONA FOMA Arts Festival, Brian Ritchie. Rather than whack this in our regular interview format, we thought we’d try something a little different so thanks to the wonders of the internet, you can continue working while you enjoy our chat in podcast form:

A few questions to ponder while listening: Do you think crowdsourced funding is better than traditional publishing models? Have you ever used Kickstater before? Do you create better work when you’re travelling far from home? We’d love to hear your thoughts on the conversation with Brian Ritchie. Please leave comments below, or get in touch via Twitter .
