Excellent bite-sized nuggets of wisdom and reassurance and the occasional smack upside the head. Discovered only recently, but back-tracking to the beginning to be a part of the journey. Thanks, David.

I can’t tell you how helpful this is in my own creative process. Just what I needed. Thank you so much.

You speak to my soul. I can relate to This..
LK-Mattis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/21/21
I am currently making my way through all the back episodes and finding it a great way to start the day along with a copy of David’s Soul of the Camera. As much as I would like to attend one of his workshops or training programs, these podcasts and resources are the next best thing. Thanks David...Read full review »

I hit a low place this weekend, believing that I was alone with my struggles with my writing. Simply put, I convinced myself that I was a fake and had no talent. Then, I discovered David. I immediately bought his book “Start Ugly” and began reading. I found out I’m not alone with my self doubts...Read full review »

This podcast is my all-time favorite and each episode provides powerful insights to ponder. While this podcast focuses on the creative process, it is applicable to all facets of life. David DuChemin analyses creation with remarkable depth and stamps his stories with keen wit. This is a podcast...Read full review »

“A Beautiful Anarchy” is an EXCELLENT show. David’s presentation is thoughtful and concise (and really wonderfully friendly), and I always come away with at least one new mind-altering idea from each episode. I love journaling along with each short episode. I’m a writer and a teacher, and often...Read full review »

This podcast reminds me of that fantastic little restaurant you've found in your home town that you simultaneously don't want to tell anyone about so that you can hoard it all for yourself, AND you want to tell everyone you know about what a treasure you've found! (P.S. I have shared...Read full review »

The first three episodes are really inspiring. I hope David can keep up the pace and continue in the same captivating style. There is some poetry there among the analyzes and advice. I’m looking forward to following this podcast. A year ago I wrote the above and I am still listening to the...Read full review »
Goran_B via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 03/10/21
This has been my favourite episode yet. Your direct approach to death and its inevitability is refreshing, I share your belief that the fact we die is not the big issue, it is rather the way in which we live our lives. I love the idea of channelling our creativity into how we create each of our...Read full review »
somersetness via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/10/21
I can’t say enough about this podcast. I recommended it to all of my friends who create. David voices all of the thoughts that hide in shadowy corners for artists- and by bring them out into the light, gives us the opportunity to connect and feel valided. A much needed shot in the arm, kick in...Read full review »

David is a philosopher, cunningly disguised as a photographer.
Street Newbie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/08/21
A short podcast that always packs a punch. This is one of my favourite podcasts. David always has a unique way of looking at things & his insights often spark new ideas for my creative work.
Maree Kim via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/06/21
David speaks to me. It resonates loudly and makes me think about art differently. I question myself more and really think about the themes David talks about. His books are amazing too!!
another shutter bug via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/21
... but I have one question for you. Did you secretly interview me for this, perhaps while I was sleeping longer just to avoid getting up and facing being a creative who doesn’t create? Honestly, I’m several episodes in and as yet, you’re only talking about me. Perhaps you should try making some...Read full review »
BmoreRobin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/21
David’s podcasts are like seeds, in every one there is a statement, a thought, a position presented in such a way it is like a seed that I can plant, nurture and grow, often challenging a thought pattern that I have around creativity and who is a creative or an artist. Highly recommend this...Read full review »

Alli_J_2018 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/20
I’ve been a full-time self-employed creative for fifteen years. A graphic designer friend recommended this podcast to me some time ago and thought it would connect with me. She was right. David’s a skilled writer and speaker, and I get something valuable from each episode. It might be a new...Read full review »

So much inspiration and encouragement found in these podcasts! David is a talented photographer, writer and teacher. I’m so glad I found his work.
krizzlecreates via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/20
Podcasts are short, succinct and completely lacking in product plugs or advertising! I have listened to the first 5 so far and find them thoughtful and inspiring. As a beginner artist (photographer) this is just what I need!!
x1111111 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/06/20
This is the perfect podcast series. It is always a good nudge to push me further and every episode is something totally unexpected.

Spongebrain62 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/09/20
I’ve binge listened to your podcast today! I think I got through more than half of the season! Fabulous!
fabulous past 50 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/31/20
Each episode brings so much wisdom and insight presented in such a lovely way. I don’t know how he can continue to have so many brilliant ideas to share, but each episode is another gem. So pleased I discovered his podcast and will look forward to reading his books.

I look forward to listening to David’s take on the creative life ( mostly) every week. In fact I feel a small pang of disappointment on that 4th week where there is no podcast but then I know my e mail has a small nugget of inspiration waiting for me 🤗 I’ve started reading his book “Start Ugly”...Read full review »

I have to drive 40 minutes to go for the work, and 40 to get back home. I decided to listen to all the podcasts again. I find them so interesting and inspiring that I hope there’s traffic jam. Many thanks David for your podcasts.
Ghislain60 via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 08/05/20
David gives very wise advice, nothing really new but nicely told. Thank you!
Yenzus via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/02/20
This is my favorite podcast. I look forward to David’s thoughts and suggestions every week. In the end, much of the advice and guidance becomes simple, almost common sense, but it takes someone with David’s insight and gift for writing to distill these things to their essence. David is like a...Read full review »
oddbotkin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/20
I’m so enjoying this podcast! Yes, I’m into photography but I also enjoy creating visual art with other mediums and I make jewelry. The first 3 episodes alone have me changing notification settings and really thinking about how I’m spending my time as well as realizing how I’ve let comparisons...Read full review »

I love David Duchemin’s podcast. I have also read many of his books, so I am familiar with his work. As his work, also the podcast, is very insightful and beautiful.

David's style of delivery is warm, friendly, conversational and apologetically Canadian. Hidden beneath the engaging veneer are messages that resonate so deeply I need go go back for a 2nd and 3rd listen. Through doing this for example today I learned about James Victore and embracing my...Read full review »
