136. The Podcast turns 50 (soon)!
flipping the script for a special episode of the sneakyart episode.
Later this summer I will hit Episode 50 of the SneakyArt Podcast. You can help me celebrate this milestone!
I started the SneakyArt Podcast in Sep 2020 as a way to stay in touch with other artists during the pandemic. I figured it would be a good way to continue learning in a time of social isolation.
Growing out of this simple idea, today it receives over 6000 plays per month from listeners in over 45 countries.
Podcasting is intimate media.
Every week I hear from new listeners who appreciate the particular way I produce the show and the real connection they feel with the guest.
I believe long-form conversations are special in this respect. The more time you spend listening to people, the closer you feel to them. Sometimes it can even feel like you’re in the same room!
Podcasts occupy a special space in the life of the listener.
Sometimes they are a morning routine. Sometimes they help them relax in the evening. They can be a companion on long walks or runs or drives, or during the day’s chores.
A listener once reached out to share that they listen to me while mountain-biking! That same week another listener shared that they listen to the show while pulling weeds in the garden.
With Episode 50, I am flipping the script!
This milestone episode will be hosted by Uma Kelkar (my guest in Episode 4) instead of myself. I will sit on the guest’s chair to answer questions posed by her, other guests of the show, and you - the listeners!
Help me celebrate! Grab this opportunity to ask me anything about my work, the podcast, or any specific episodes.

Dear listener, what is the show worth to you?
This message is part of my summer fundraising drive to keep SneakyArt independent and continue to do the work I love.
It is my pleasure to put together this library of good ideas in the form of a podcast. And I am proud to make it exactly the way I like it, feeding my own curiosities and following my own thoughts.
It takes a lot of time and effort to do things my way. Even though today I have a clearer sense of my mission, and have picked up several skills that streamline my workflow, my ideas and ambitions have also grown in tandem.
The result is that publishing a new episode today feels just as challenging as the first time!
