Max Temkin

EMax Temkin is not your average human. He formerly advised on the Obama for America campaign, worked with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and is also the creator of the much-loved game Cards Against Humanity. Max and his team’s approach to creativity is rather simple. They think of weird ideas until something makes them laugh. Beyond that, it’s exploring which of those new ideas, might not work. They talk it out until something sticks. A rather novel approach to business on the whole, one could argue. The secret to the success of Cards Against Humanity might just be Max and his trusty Dixon Ticonderoga No. 2 pencil. As every new idea he has, he writes it down with this preferred writing implement. I’ve already ordered a box. We talked to Max about Chicago, his love for magic, the newly founded Mural Registry, and many other random (but important) topics. Ever wonder how Rock the Vote got started? Want to know why you should listen to birdsong? Interested in mastering a new ski...

Derek Hess & Hope For The Day on Mental Health Awareness

EWe kick off season two talking about mental health and creativity. (Warning: this episode talks about suicide + dark subjects within mental health awareness (plus, has some swearing) that may not be suitable for all listeners.) We’re joined by world-renowned artist Derek Hess and founder of the nonprofit “Hope for the Day”, Jonny Boucher; both advocates for mental health awareness. Recently, Hess went on tour for his new book, “31 Days in May”, full of art pieces he posted in 2017 for Mental Health Awareness Month that each have a story related to his own struggles. Boucher just opened Chicago’s "Sip of Hope" - the first coffee shop that donates 100% of the proceeds to support mental health education and suicide prevention.
