About the Show

I believe conversations aren't about facts and answers, they're about trying on ideas and wrestling with complex, elusive, ridiculous & difficult questions to see what's possible. I want to understand who people are, how they think, & how they can expand my perspective. Most of my guests are people in creative fields, some aren't, but all of them are fascinating to me. These are civil discussions where I'm willing to be wrong, I'm willing to disagree, I'm willing to cultivate crushes, and I'm willing to fall in love with human beings.

Creative Minds for me is all about casual conversations that aren't rushed or forced; conversations that find their depth naturally. I used to love running across old episodes of Dick Cavett and Charlie Rose and wonder why they were so damn short; what they would be like without commercial breaks, and "we're out of time." To me, Creative Minds is a late night radio talk show: just two people talking low, getting lost in the dark, and digging up bones like no one is listening.
