Ep. 20 — Kim McCann
Our guest Kim is an actor/performance artist for a historical museum, a writer (fiction, playwright, fan-fiction), and the quintessential artist type. The overarching theme for this podcast is how art, in its highest form, can evoke powerful emotional responses in people. This is a huge motivation behind the creative process, and in itself a fulfilling currency for many artists—tangentially, we talk about the ways our current economy can be crippling for creative types. We also discuss self-talk and how it relates to artistic validation and confidence, as well as the necessity of adversity in creative pursuits.
When she's not working the job of her dreams, Kim is finishing up a few literary works and dabbling in booze infusion/cocktailing. You can find her on Instagram @kim.indy (https://www.instagram.com/kim.indy/).
