  1. I’m glad I found 176. Knowing it was ‘live’ since May 27th makes me wish there was some notification…maybe there is somewhere. I am so ready to do the big/little data challenge. You make it not only interesting, but compelling, like I want to fall into a vat of visual data recordings to see it all. I feel hesitant only in knowing multiple ways to represent data. There is much to learn, and I will check out your links to that. I loved hearing Tammy and can’t wait to do my own response to ‘breakdown’…. I have one suggestion for CMP, but it is tiny in comparison to the breadth of your podcast….but you do focus on ‘moms’….more than once…(a bar graph? lol)…..and I feel that closes off and excludes those of us past the ‘child rearing’ years….creative art is for all wherever you are on your journey. I love the links to children’s books, and will always love that connection you make, but you also give links to adult reading….and adult challenges and issues that span those with young children and those who aren’t so lucky….so really? So a podcast well done in interestingness, relevancy, and timelines….compelling being the most important. You make the listener want to pick up that pen and write/draw/record/ or just doodle that moment. And that is the best ever result you could have. I am a forever listener. o

    1. Thank you for the feedback. I have been pretty vocal about the “mom” element not being totally relevant to the podcast at this point. The release of 175 and 176 were both announced at Facebook and at Twitter. Following at Facebook is a great way to be alerted when a new podcast comes out. It is unfortunate that the show has been dropped from iTunes. I will work on that later this summer.

  2. Amy, I had this podcast on my phone waiting to be heard for weeks and finally, finally, listened on my walk this week. It was marvelous! I’m a pretty analytical person and absolutely adored your talk on big data. And what a fun idea, to capture in info-graphic format some aspect of the day. The options for subject matter could be hilarious or illuminating or both! And the thing is that you are a creative mom – trying to steal some time for art – in the midst of a busy life. PS. I appreciate the opportunity to contribute a prompt, and am honored at your kind words.

  3. You’re podcasting again!!!!!! So awesome! Would love to add it to iTunes! I started listening to your podcasts before we had kids and now I want to go back and listen all over again, this time with more context for me.
