Fri Sep 01 2023


Todd Henry, author of The Accidental Creative: How to Be Brilliant at a Moment's Notice, began The Accidental Creative podcast in 2005. Fifteen million downloaded episodes later, the podcast is a staple for creative professionals.

His weekly podcast strives to answer the questions "Where do brilliant ideas come from?" and "Is it possible to do great work under pressure every single day?" Some of Henry's most popular episodes include the beginning of his four-part miniseries on preparing for the new year. In the first episode of that series, Henry poses four questions to help listeners self-assess their current work situation before the beginning of 2023.


Podcast guests include top artists, business leaders, and thinkers to offer tips on staying "prolific, brilliant, and healthy." This year alone, Henry welcomed guests such as Danielle Feinberg, Pixar's director of photography for lighting, and actress Anjali Bhimani.
