That Creative Life
That Creative Life is a podcast hosted by one of my favorite YouTubers, Sara Dietschy. Sara enjoys the creative process and wanted to find a way to be able to share it with the World and discover how others take part in the creative process.
This podcast also dives into topics like personal branding/marketing, technology, self-improvement, and business. Sara is fun to listen to and brings a casual approach to her interviews. Her guests are given the attention they deserve, and she is genuinely interested to learn more about them.

Waveform: The MKBHD Podcast
Technology influences the way we live as well as who we become in today’s society. The benefits are plenty but there are always road-bumps.

Marques’ YouTube channel is more focused on mobile technology, but he shares his thoughts on the industry as a whole on Waveform. Marques will also interview big names like Bill Gates and Elon Musk as well as other content creators focused on the technology products.
