As promised, it looks like the new episode of BIPT is finally up! Check out their new site! I actually was in the room while they were recording… pretty cool. :)
For anyone who doesn’t know, my fiance and his co-host/fellow cartoonist/freelance illustrator Kevin Cross, are the two guys giving tips and advice, personal experience, and a lot of humor to what it’s reeeeeaaally like freelancing on this Podcast. They talk about their work-week and answer questions from listeners. It’s pretty fun to listen to because they also add some funny jokes and have a really unique way of looking at freelance that’s kind of “punk rock” and “in your face.” Meaning, they don’t sugar-coat it… which I think, is why people loved the show so much. I’m not where they are as far as making my living solely on freelance, but living with Josh I get the sense that it truly is a love-hate kind of job. In any case, listening to the show can be pretty inspiring and also just a nice way to know “you’re not alone.” :)
I also know that there are a number of other shows that talk about similar subjects but I think -aside from the fact that Josh co-hosts- BIPT is unique because I think they are the most candid. So check ’em out and judge for yourself if you like. :) It’s all in good fun.
On another sort of related note, Josh and I have been listening to The Adventures of Philip Marlowe on ITunes. We are fans of these stories and just the character himself. When you can’t find a lot of time to read, listening to stories is almost as great. The sound effects and voice acting is just so awesome… I love it! :)
I’m sure we’ll have to find more like it when we’ve heard them all… I wonder if they have any Twilight Zones like this… hee hee.
Ok, I’d better try to paint something.
