This time we use an email from David French as inspiration for a discussion on whether success in art depends on specializing in one thing. In a world that celebrates "renaissance people" and "multitaskers", why is it some sneer at the "jack of all trades"? And what does that term even mean?
It's a walk around the role of focus, determination, and finishing when pursuing a creative lifestyle in this audio-only episode.
