This week I’m joined by Casper - founder of the queer music podcast Homoground, and the virtual co-working space Focus/Time. They’re also a new-ish employee at AIR media (Association of Independent Artists in Radio). I discovered Casper on Instagram through a sponsored ad they placed promoting homoground, and learning about a podcast dedicated explicitly to queer musicians made my heart happy. We discuss what it takes to fundraise for a creative project, the idea of kicking perfectionism out the door as soon as possible to get your project started and build some momentum, some of the best ways to sustain a project over time, and we also learn a bit about Casper’s more recent choice to align their neutral pronouns with their identity as non-binary. I’m particularly excited to have this chat merging my lifelong passion of music with a more recent passion of podcasting. I hope you get as much out of this episode as I did!What stood out to me most after speaking with casper was their ability to always look for the opportunity in the set back. Living a meaningful life takes courage to stand by your values, to put the work in to see your vision through, and to be willing to honor the creative voice inside you that sometimes is hard to hear. Sometimes its a simple as just showing up again and again asking the question “how can I be of service to my creative voice today”. When it’s hard to hear that voice maybe it’s knowing when to step away, create some stillness, and attune yourself to what’s happening internally. Casper found themself drawn to music at an early age, and over the years has built a life to support that passion. What a privilege it is to wake up and ask the creator inside “how can I be of service to you today” — I hope that’s how I can start all my days - co-creating a life I am inspired to live.Homoground podcast Airmedia New Voices Fellowship Focus/Time Instagram Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/howwegetby)
