The Quinn Spinn: A Discussion About Life, Relationships, and Podcasting with Kaelyn Warne

Kaelyn Warne is a Ph.D student and the host of Seasoned & STEAMed, a research-based podcast about art, science, history, and wellness, delivered in a fun, quirky, and educational way. We connected with Kaelyn as an ambitious fellow podcaster at Helping Our Music Evolve (H.O.M.E.), and have had the opportunity to watch, as she has launched her new podcast from scratch.

One day, we were in the studio, taking her through the setup process as she prepared to record her first episodes. We sat down to test out the microphones and, before we knew it, we had an unexpected episode of The Quinn Spinn on our hands!

During this episode, we discuss what it’s like to build a platform like ours from scratch, and the ways in which our passions dictate our free time and impact our relationships — familial, romantic, and otherwise. This is a can’t-miss conversation for anybody with a creative pursuit!

In the digital space, it can be easy to seek outside validation, and measure ourselves by the amount of likes, comments, and shares we receive on our work. When we get it, we feel great. When we don’t… it can play tricks on our self-esteem.

We invite you to check out this week’s #UMCRealTalk on the topic. Then, tell us the ways you build self-worth in the comments!

However, there’s always hope on the other side — and that’s where we may find the light and meaning in the struggle.

UMC Real Talk: The Process

Each of us is on our own creative journey. With that comes a process that is guaranteed to teach us lessons. Some of them are easy. Others are a little more hard-earned.

Here’s why it’s important to trust in that process, no matter how things turn out in the moment.
