The Revolve One Story and the Importance of Creativity – BtR 159

Brother and sister duo, Rudy and Crystal Garcia, share their story about starting Revolve One podcast and the importance of creativity.

The Importance of Creativity

Rudy first reached out to his sister Crystal with the idea of a podcast that talked about marginalized topics. They wanted to discuss the types of things that were important to their inner circles that are often not covered by mainstream media because they don’t fit the traditional news cycles.

Since starting Revolve One, they have covered areas related to the legalization of marijuana, entrepreneurial startups, dying of cancer, and more!

The endeavor turned out to be a great outlet for Rudy. It was the next thing they did with their show during Season 2 that cracked open the importance of creativity. Their audience desperately needed what they had to offer, and they are doing their best to deliver.

The Psychology of Creativity

One big element of the Revolve One Podcast story is how creativity led to hope, healing, and understanding for their listeners. Crystal’s poetry became a staple of the show, and live events are something their audience desires from them.

Brandon and Jerry are not the experts when it comes to Psychology. Here is a list of articles that will help you better understand creativity in psychology.

Types of Creative Thinking

Creativity is about thinking in a new and unique way for yourself. There are different types of creativity, so don’t panic if you think that we’re saying podcasting is the only way you can express your voice or message. Here is a list we pulled from Simplicable.

  • Brainstorming
  • Abundance mentality
  • Counterfactual thinking – that sounds like fun!
  • Storytelling – even writing a journal

Here are some other ideas as well.

  • Music performance
  • Dance
  • Painting or sketching
  • Photography
  • Sculpting

Write out your creative skills list and pick a way you would like to express your creativity.
