tl;dr — Creative South Podcast is changing it’s name to Feasting on Design and coming back with new episodes early next year.
I want to thank all of you who have listened to and supported the Creative South Podcast over the last 3 years. A few people know this already and I will be announcing it publicly tomorrow, but next week will be the last episode of the Creative South Podcast. I’ll be taking a break and coming back Jan/Feb with Feasting on Design. Overall the podcasts will be similar, the same basic format of an interview show, but I am hoping to talk to chefs, restaurateurs, bartenders, etc. as well as designers. I’m still figuring out the day to day of the show and I’m sure it will evolve over time, but for now, I plan on putting out episodes every 2 weeks. If you already subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher you won’t need to resubscribe, I’m keeping the same feed.
Mike Jones and I talked back in late August/early September and he told me he was trying to take CS back to its roots. Part of getting back to the roots was letting go of the podcast. Don’t worry, I’m still on staff with CS and there’s no bad blood between Mike and me.
I’ve been lucky enough to ride on the coattails of the Creative South name for the past 3 years, and for that, I’ll be forever grateful to Mike for getting on board with my crazy idea to do a podcast talking to past CS speakers. While it’s scary going it on my own, in reality, I’ve been doing that with the podcast from the beginning. I’ve been a one-man show booking guests, lining up sponsors, hosting the show, editing and producing episodes, all of the social media stuff etc. has always been just me.
Hopefully, this change will allow me to do something that I’ve struggled with in the past because the podcast was associated with the Creative South name—being invited to other conferences. Hint, Hint Matt Dawson, bring me to Crop! I can do a podcast, moderate a panel, and give a talk all for one low price! But that’s not all, if you act today I’ll throw in free hugs!
Again thank you all for the support over the past few years, and hopefully for continued support with Feasting on Design.
