After a quick Inktober chat, we get deep into Tiff’s not-that-seedy past at a Broadway costume shop. And yes, it is just as cool as you imagine.
We need to work out some feelings. Insecurity, overenthusiasm and overexertion, joy, worry. They’re all there.
Tiff is back in the studio, and Julia is itching to get back to hers after a month on the road. What have we learned from having to, well, make do with what we had? Also, a big reveal!
We watch the documentary Gerhard Richter Painting and ponder what makes an artist great, and how the sound of paint shmooshing and scraping makes us feel.
We answer some listener questions, from suggestions for specific pens to more philosophical musings about productivity and profitability.
What do you do when someone else says the things that you say to yourself? Why do they like to feed our impostor syndrome?

We tried reading a book and gave up. So we talk about self help or inspirational books, and about giving up.
We get a visit from Merlin Mann, and talk about - well, a lot of stuff. What to call yourself, tall poppy syndrome, and micro-creativity.
Why are we mean to our younger selves, when they were trying out new things? Can we be nicer to our now-selves by being nicer to our then-selves? Also, did Julia ever really like hockey?
Julia is very excited about some workshops she’s been taking lately, and we talk about the ups and downs of taking different kinds of classes to try new things or improve your craft.
