Benefits of Looking Back

I am in a celebratory mood for this episode and allow me to tell you why. So, I started this podcast back on Nov 30th, 2019, right before the pandemic hit, so you could consider this a pandemic project podcast. But in reality, this was a rebrand from my old show KDOI Podcasting where I was talking with artists and doing projects, and commenting on what art means to me. All of this was done to encourage you to get into the arts and provide you with a place to share your work. In these three years and close to 200 episodes, okay so a bunch were rebroadcasted of KDOI, I have interviewed artists and provided you with a great deal to think about when it comes to stepping into the water and creating art. In this episode, I want to take a look back at 2022, reflect on what I have done, and then look at 2023 as I am already planning the year out. I have some new ideas about what we will cover in the new year and the direction of this show.

What Will The New Year Bring

I ended a podcast I had called Clearly Obtuse, however, I am going to merge them in with Create Art Podcast, they will just have their own page dedicated on the website. I am going to rebroadcast the old episodes and a few other episodes from podcasts that I have done in the past. Other things that are coming up, I am looking at making this podcast every two weeks an episode pops up on your feed. I will continue to do my other podcast Find A Podcast About, which you will hear about as more episodes drop. I like the way I have that show formatted and will be formatting this show in a similar format. I am also planning on going to more conferences, mainly podcasting conferences, but also creativity conferences. I think it is important to surround yourself in a community that encourages your art and creativity. I will be letting you know what other podcasts I am listening to when it comes to creativity and will share them with you here on this podcast, hence why I am tying my other podcast with this podcast.

One last thing I want to leave you with is an important issue for many of the listeners of this podcast and that is individual liberty.

Individual Liberty

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

What Can You Do

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit donations 4 abortion dot com. That’s the number 4.
