Creativity: Why Classical Music Isn’t Enough


I had an idea: “Hey, Imogen, would you like to record a podcast with me? We could discuss all those wild unschooling thoughts that keep bubbling up inside of us.”

My 20-year-old daughter nodded, and asked, “What shall we talk about for our first episode?”

“How about creativity?”

“Sure!”

So I made a list of questions we could explore. We set up our microphone. I pressed the ‘record’ button, and Imogen said, “You’re listening to the Wild Inside podcast!”

Amongst other things, we explored the following questions:

  • Why are some people more creative than others?
  • Can you be an artist and not be creative?
  • Can everything be approached creatively? What about maths?
  • Will there ever be another Mozart?
  • Why is a diet of classical music not enough?
  • Are all classic novels good?
  • How can we encourage our children to be creative?

After we’d finished recording, I saved the audio file, deciding to edit it another day. But when I returned, I couldn’t find our podcast. I couldn’t remember what I’d called it. So for several weeks, our podcast was lost somewhere on my computer. But today I found it!

So here’s our first episode of our Wild Inside podcast. We hope you’ll listen!

The Angels of Abbey Creek
