10: stalin on a fixee
This week Robin & Justin return from a long hiatus to talk about sustainable creativity. How do you keep doing the work you love when nobody wants to pay you unless your article has gifs? What keeps us going when the well runs dry? Is "loving it" enough?
Robin tries to figure out whether making your work into work is a problem, her dog has opinions about Tchaikovsky's vocabulary, and Justin gets lost in a long metaphor about bowling bumpers that he promises to clear up next week.
That Cord Jefferson is a pretty good writer. He should get a raise.
It's hard to do what you do when you don't get paid.
Sometimes getting paid makes your work less honest...
...but maybe sometimes it's the reason you make good work.
