About Us

A creative leap of faith from Jason Gots, producer and host of Think Again – a Big Think Podcast. For anyone who’s ever made something strange and beautiful that never saw the light of day, Clever Creature is the end to all our good excuses. Each episode starts with an algorithmically picked random word. And Jason has just one day to write short story and a song inspired by it. Could that word be "buttock?" Absolutely it could. Whatever it is, Jason has to roll with it. There's nowhere to hide.About the host: From 2015-2020, Jason hosted Think Again – a Big Think Podcast, spontaneous, down-to-earth conversations on surprise topics with thinkers and creatives including Neil Gaiman, Jaqueline Woodson, Terry Gilliam, Margaret Atwood, David Sedaris, Marlon James, and over 200 more. The show was an iTunes Best of 2015 pick and won praise from Salon, Inc. and The Huffington Post. Jason’s also the author of a memoir coming in 2021 from Hanover Square Press.
