Episode 58: Ben Tinsley
When I first started the show back in 2014, I made a list of all my friends who were musicians/creative folk, and reach out to all of them to be on the show. Ben Tinsley was one of them, and while it’s taken a bit to get him on the show, it’s been worth the wait. This conversation is part interview, and part just two guys catching up who don’t get to see each other much anymore.
Getting older seems to put a major cramp in being a creative person. There are expectations and demands and responsibilities that now seem even more pressing than they may have before. One of the main themes of our talk is how we’re both still trying to keep one foot in the creative world that we once spent all of our time in. I think it’s important to have these honest conversations with fellow creators about the balance of life, and how to keep that part of yourself at it’s fighting weight. I think it's important to keep in conversation with people like Ben. It helps you remember why you did what you did in the first place: the people you meet.
