about us

honestly, dear listener

We were born to create. So why do so many of us let fear and insecurity keep us from creating? Honestly, Dear Listener is a fortnightly podcast that seeks to answer that question and solve that problem. We tell the truth here. And the truth is that art is hard, but anything worth doing is difficult. Here you'll find honest conversations about how to slap fear and insecurity in the face and embrace freedom.

With an emphasis on storytelling, we interview artists of all mediums and showcase new music, poetry, and short stories. Honestly, Dear Listener exists to inspire creativity by championing vulnerability and community.

Listen to our first episode here.
