In the second half of our deeply Uncomprehensive exploration of creativity, Chris and Isaiah try to nail down this slipperiest of concepts. What exactly Is creativity, and in what habitat does it flourish? Extreme stress? Meditation, procrastination, poverty? All of the above? And why does it only seem to come when we're not trying? Plus: who's going to volunteer to discuss the uncomfortably undeniable efficacy of certain chemical aids? If you've ever written a novel in your head, chased a poem across a field, or sung to the universe, this is the podcast for you. Bonus Feature: the introduction of our recurring silent foil, Straw Man Tom Hardy.
