Episode 39: Tech Geek Artist – Kieran McKeefery

First off… apologies to Kieran!

Several times I asked him to increase his volume, but in the end, his sound was better than ours! Turns out it was our speaker output volume that was the issue and NOT his mic! #LifeLesson #MaybeItsMe! #LessonLearned! 🤓

The other thing you’ll hear in the background on our end is NATURE! We love to sit outside whenever the weather is nice, which it was on this late winter day. The “peepers” in the bog (wetland area) down the hill thawed out to sing an early song of spring… and, they are very loud!

But back to Kieran, we thoroughly enjoyed our time discussing what he’s done and what he’s thinking of doing more of. We ended up doing a bit of spontaneous ideating around whether he’ll start his own podcast and what topic he might do. And while Kieran doesn’t consider himself an artist, as you’ll glean from this podcast, creativity and creating in the zone takes on all kinds of creative forms!

 

Speaking of lessons learned, in this episode we discuss:

  • Important metrics podcasters should tune into
  • How a passion for creating something transcends time and space
  • A favorite movie that blends math and art
  • Kieran’s daily productivity habits
  • The event that occured that made Kieran famous in UK forever
  • Brainstorm ideas for what kind of podcast Kieran might do as he embarks on that next adventure in his life.
  • Ideas for identifying what kind of podcast to do
  • Ideas for creating a different podcast format
