TLC Podcast #13: Creativity for Non-Creatives
With a temporary exodus by Taylor and Nathan, Rachel and Dan are left alone for a playdate. The two explore an important question: how can people who don't consider themselves creative discover opportunities for creativity every day? To answer this question, the two talk about how language traps us, the importance and many forms of play, and how play can help deconstruct conventional narratives around productivity, creativity, and selfhood. Other bases covered: what Dan learned from his experience in improv, boundary-testing in solitude, and how play is crucial to the construction and development of Every.
