A new episode of +The Busy Creator Podcast is now live on our site and on iTunes! This week is the proceedings from our live event where we commemorate 100 episodes of The Busy Creator Podcast and remark on the journey! This event was a crossover with the New York City Podcast Meetup, recorded at +Small City Co-working space in Brooklyn.

Joining Prescott on stage are musician +Joaquin Cotler, UX designer +Rashan Casseus, and video publisher/entrepreneur +Gabby Wallace. Together we discuss daily practice, creating projects and nurturing them over time, and our own experiences with podcasting.
