A Statistical 1st for Creative Ops

Hello creative type person!

Today I’m giving a quick update on the podcast as it enters its 3rd year of being. I record in Grand Rapids, MI. Often I have local guests and we talk face-to-face. So I understand why the most downloads always come from Michigan (according to Podbean’s stats).

But in December of ’21, two things happened. First, the show hit an all time high in yearly and monthly download highs. The second thing is really part of the first thing, I suppose, but here it is. For the first time, Michigan (the home state of the show) was NOT the leader in downloads.

It was California.

So if this continues I guess I’m moving out west.

(Get it together, Michigan…)

I’m excited for 2022. My book is still set for release this summer. My podcast is still going. Some of my new friends are starting podcasts. I’ve got some collaborations planned with both seasoned and noob podcasters. I feel like this is going to be a fun year. Hopefully you feel the same. If not, go do something creative!

If you aren’t caught up on my podcast, Creative Ops, you might start with the Top 10 Most Downloaded Episodes of 2021. Or, if you want a clear look at ALL the guests, peep this Breakdown of Every Guest by Creative Genre.

For the latest episode, where I interview my mother on how to raise a creative genius (LOL), look no further:

Ep.49 | How to Raise a Creative Genius with Special Guest…MY MOM! (First show of 2022!) Creative Ops

Ok, so the title may seem a bit outrageous, but it's supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, people. Rather than get interviewed by someone else or perform an autobiography in the vein of a get-to-know-your-host style program, I interviewed my mom about what it was like to raise me. As we talk about, I hated school and decided to almost completely tune out for the last half of my public education. I was most commonly described by teachers as "smart but he doesn't apply himself." I graduated high school with a 2.01GPA. That whole time, my mom was always about as cool as a person could be in that situation, which is probably why that part of my life hasn't deterred me from doing what I **really** want to do. If you were kind of an asshole as a kid, this might be an interesting memory jogger. If your kid is kind of an asshole now, this might be informative and relieve your soul a little bit. Or not. I don't pretend to know about stuff like that; I'm just a creative genius with a cool mom. . . .

Thanks for checking it out. If you leave a review on Apple Podcasts, I’ll sing it on the show. Hit me up on Twitter and/or Instagram, like and follow on FaceBook, and all that shit.
