A Pipeline Artists original podcast about nothing and everything. Hosts Sadie Dean and Jeanne Veillette Bowerman share the truth, and nothing but the truth, about the challenges and benefits of living life as artists, striving for freedom to create in any medium, even ones you never thought of before. It's honest—no sugarcoating or selling hope. We tell it like it is, while always finding ways to make lemonade out of lemons. Think of us as Michael Bay, but with action items that don’t explode.
