Hey folks! The show is officially 2 years old. Woo! Thanks to all the guests who've been on, people who've listened, and friends I've made along the way. This show means a lot more to me now than it did at the start. It used to feel almost like a chore to get them out on time, especially when it felt like hardly anyone was listening. Now I get as many downloads in a day as I used to in a month. So thanks for everything. Truly. Other stuff on this episode: Happy Birthday to Brandon Scott (Episode 8)–>buy his books! Book News: Shooting for a June release date. See more about my upcoming book, Switchers New original music for the show Last week recap Next week teaser A heartfelt thanks (like the one above) Thanks for listening. Now go be creative!

Creative Ops | 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. . . . Find me, Christopher Tallon, on http://www.christophertallon.com, or on your favorite socials @TallonWrites. (My mom doesn't do social media, but I'll tell her you said "Hi")
