Radio Honey

Radio Honey started out as a podcast for a thesis project. These are the beta recordings. Watch for a reprise of this project to showcase the journeys and successes of my initial guests and others.

Why do we create? That’s the question I have to ask. I ask it of myself and I ask it of other artists. Is it a blessing or a curse? Sometimes madness. Sometimes ecstasy. As kindred spirits, it’s up to us to inspire and motivate one another. Many go the route of knocking down whomever is in their way.  No matter what we choose, we have a profound affect on one another. 

I won’t go so far as to say the Hive is a support group like AA or church. But artists get depressed. And we also get really up. We feed off of each others’ energy.  Maybe this is a way of keeping a good perspective and not getting locked in our rooms with our work—isolated and immobilized.

Radio Honey is the podcast of Local Honey’s Kelly Brown. Local Honey is dedicated to cross-pollinating the works of independent artists and creating buzz [in a commercial world where the little voice is seldom heard].
