Episode 113: A Survival Guide for Aspiring Creatives

Ep. 113

Hold up. What's this?

Some random artist made a Facebook comment. It's about what's an artist and what isn't.

Boom! Artist all over the Philippines had violent reactions. The whole thing blew up!

And we're here now to give you our thoughts about this rather thorny subject. Could two weeks of a little R&R really be that bad?

Aside from this, we're giving you unsolicited advice on how to make it as an artist in this Third World Country.

Perk up your ears, podpals, and doodle while you listen to another brain-stimulatin' telebabad session.
