Battling Your Muse


A recent podcast from Radiolab explores, among other things, how to talk to your muse. As our communication design students pounds their collective heads on the wall (metaphorically, I hope) trying to shake out ideas, this podcast makes a case for talking to your creative genius. And not just talking, but arguing, haggling and even threatening. Although, as a responsible disclaimer, it is seems pertinent to disavow Oliver Sacks' method for self-motivation. Take a listen and find out what kind of relationship you and your muse might develop.
