Check out the Accidental Creative podcast.

accidentalcreativeFor many designers the Accidental Creative might be the first and only podcast you actually listen to.

The Accidental Creative podcast is produced semi-regularly by Todd Henry. Each audio essay is 7 to 15 minutes in length and focuses on challenges common to many creative pros.

Past essay topics include: What do you do when you’re creatively empty? How does mediocrity creep into a creative organization? Do you feel pushed along by your work, or are you ahead of it?

Todd also produces two other related podcasts. Each exploring the world of professional creativity from slightly different perspectives: The Creative Leader features longer discussions about leading creative teams; and Creative Pops with quick one-minute creative insights.
