[00:00:00] Ollie: Hi, my name is Ollie Palmer and this is my new podcast called Hold the Space. It's about people who have a creative practice, but who also teach. Each episode features a conversation with someone whose work and teaching I find inspiring. I'll be talking to artists, designers, musicians, architects, experience designers, futurists, and more. People at different stages of teaching and creative careers with different backgrounds in different countries. How did they come to be the practitioner and the teacher they are today?

[00:00:39] Ollie: I'll ask them _what_ they do, _why_ they do it, and _how_ they do it.
