We have launched another MWB Podcast – Spark-o-Creativity – hosted by MWB Creative Savant Marc Leffler (that’s me). The new podcast joins MWB Creative Fire as another in the agency’s line of content focused on the mission of #Create4Good. Specifically, Spark-O-Creativity revolves around an endeavor to increase digital and creative literacy among young people in Mississippi – particularly those in under-served communities (more on this at a later date).
The inaugral MWB Spark-O-Creativity podcast features Jackson area youth music group Tribe 3. Ish Gray and his friends – who¬†are Tribe 3 – are high school juniors who mix beats and create hip-hop with their laptops. (they’re self-taught, btw.) Find out how this free-form digital music-making has become their “second voice.”
In this edition of the MWB Podcast, Tim talks with MWB CFO Mike Booth. After a trip to the village of Assisi, Italy, Mike was inspired to build his own architectural show place in rural Mississippi. And we mean literally build it himself…. down to planning his own 2x4s from trees on his own land!
We’ve often said that creativity permeates every person and function at MWB. Even an accountant-by-trade has creative inspiration flowing through his veins at MWB! Listen to Mike recount his moment of inspiration overseas, how a miscalculation led to a signature feature of his home, and newest project… a self-built windmill to aerate his fish pond.
It’s all in this week’s journey into creative chaos and enigmatic innovation that is the MWB Podcast.
