4 podcasts for creatives

It took us a little while to discover the joy of podcasts, but now that we have, we're hooked! Ideas, information and interviews, brought to us at our own desk (or, as it may be, kitchen table) at any time of the day, while we sip a cup of hot tea? YES PLEASE!

There's a wealth of inspiration available, not to mention advice and coaching, and the brilliant thing about podcasts is that you can access them anywhere, anytime. Listen whilst you're walking the dog, or stacking the dishwasher, on your commute or in bed at night. However you want to fit them into your life, these tailor-made radio-style shows have so much to communicate to you. Here's our pick of four fantastic podcasts for creatives...
