Today the subject of money was on my mind, and I found me asking myself this question; are you doing it for the money? I was in the kitchen making a coffee, and the question popped into my head. My answer was instant, almost like both the question and answer came at the same time. And to be honest, I was a little surprised. My answer was, no.

The New Podcast For Creatives
Larry presents The Larb, a weekly podcast for creatives. Every week you’ll get a new episode discussing the creative process, how to find and build your audience, how to market your work online and how to find creative success while staying true to the art. If you are a small business owner or a creative who’s thinking about it, this show is for you.
Challenging authority at all levels is vital in our building of a healthy society. And for the creative, there is hardly a greater imperative. In systems of education, national and local government, in work environments, sports clubs and organisations. Wherever there are those who would assume authority over others there must be those who are willing to challenge them no matter what.
There’s a new religion taking hold. In fact, there are many of them, lurking in the minds of righteous and well-meaning people. In my country, Ireland, the unobstructed march of the righteous, initially well-meaning in their pursuits, ultimately brought about the exact opposite to that which they preached. The Catholic church and their unconscious disciples held high the moral benchmark for society. So high, in fact, none of us could reach it.
The mere exposure effect says I can manipulate you easily. I want to cleverly influence you towards doing what I want without you so much as suspecting I’m a crafty bastard. You’re asleep at the wheel you see and ripe for this manipulation. I have an agenda and I intend to act purposefully to get what I want from this transaction.
Yesterday I celebrated (well I didn’t really) 100 Episodes Of The Daily Larb. The Daily Larb wasn’t a show I did a whole pile of shouting about. I did very little marketing for the show actually. As such listenership numbers are low enough. It was an experiment that I conducted using my iPhone and an iOS app named Anchor.
