Make/Work: A New Rumpus Podcast


We’re excited to announce Make/Work, a new Rumpus podcast hosted by Scott Pinkmountain.

Every creative laborer has a different story to tell about how they negotiate their relationship between their creative work and their paycheck and how they balance their lives to sustain their creative practice. In Make/Work, Scott will speak with emerging and established artists working in a wide range of creative mediums about how they survive, how they make a living, and how they maintain their work over the long term.

To kick the podcast off, Scott sits down with celebrated writer Maggie Nelson in her converted Tuff Shed writing studio in L.A.

Listen to Episode 1 (and subscribe to Make/Work) now in iTunes. Or get the direct download. New episodes will be released every other Thursday.
