Illustration Podcasts

Sometimes freelancing can be like solitary confinement. Big projects, tight deadlines, (and if you’re in the Pacific Northwest, terrible weather) can all keep you locked up in the home studio. To ward off cabin fever I like to listen to a small selection of podcasts, some illustration-related, some business-related and others general interest to stay current with the rest of the world.

Sadly, I haven’t found a technical illustration podcast, but here’s my playlist:

    I have never really gotten into podcasts, I just listen to pandora and music all the time to drown out coworkers.
    Nice illustration for the post James!

    I have listened to Howard Stern everyday since I was in grammar school and he was on AM radio in NYC. Pandora is pretty cool as well, I love my ” TOOL” Channel.
