Our creative process


The creative process. It comes easily for some and is complicated for others.

Dr. Dan Gottlieb and his guests discuss what’s part and parcel of our creative process and what gets in the way of it.

We’ll hear from psychoanalyst Barry Panter, founder of the Creativity and Madness Conference; Rachel Simon, author of New York Times bestseller The Story of Beautiful Girl; and writer Andrew Shaffer. His book Literary Rogues: A Scandalous History of Wayward Authors came out earlier this year.

    Hello, I am teaching a course at Neumann this fall entitled Human Potential and the Arts. It is so fortunate that we are currently talking about creativity and the creative process at the EXACT TIME that you are doing this topic on your show.
    Just one tiny glitch… I would like my students to listen to this but most, including me, are not able to tune in today. Is there a podcast? How do I get it?
    Thank you so much.
    Respectfully, Monica Malseed
