DATING AN ARTIST: Love Beyond 30


Fresh off the heels of Valentine’s Day, we go into the sometimes complicating life of dating an artist.


Have you dated a creative person?  Are you one of the afflicted?  Perhaps it’s like being trapped in a shark tank for both parties.  Common relationship challenges such as Financial Instability, Narcissism, Trust Issues (Infidelity), among other issues are cited.  So what’s the trick to making it work, and what exactly is it that we, as artists are thinking during the course of a relationship?


Dating into one’s 30’s proves to be yet another challenge, (not just for artists).  Everyone is having babies!  Justin goes on a Tinder date.  Two heavy metal concerts in one week! (Every Time I Die, August Burns Red, Protest The Hero, ’68), All of this and more on today’s episode!
