Adventures in Arting Podcast: Little Rowan Redhead

I'm pretty sure that Rowan and I could have talked non-stop for about six hours.  But we had to limit ourselves to just one hour.  She's smart, funny, hard working, thoughtful, and you're going to love today's podcast.  Give it a listen:

If you do not see the podcast player above, please click on this link.  On the off chance that you've never listened to a podcast or don't get why anybody would want to, here are some facts: (1) Podcasts are convenient. It's a recording that is available to you whenever and wherever you'd like to listen. You can pause, stop, start, fast forward, and rewind. Stream it through Apple Music or any podcast service. (2) Podcasts are great for listening to while making art. They provide intellectual stimulation and create a bit of company (like hanging out with friends) without the visual distraction of the TV. (3) Podcasts can inspire and educate you. I often find myself jotting down notes when I listen to a podcast. There's so much I want to remember.

If you enjoy the podcast, please tell a friend about the show.  This helps other people find the show.  Thanks so much!
