Show Notes

This week, we wrestle with creativity; is making something “good” a struggle? If it’s not, are you doing something wrong? Plus a listener sends in a great list of things to help you find your purpose. We also walk the line between art and pornography (and wonder whether the government should pay for it) with our Photographer of the Week, Robert Mapplethorpe.
