Ep-21: Guy Hasson's fantasy and science fiction cross-media work (and his secret commercial job).
Updated: Oct 2, 2019
He writes award-winning prose, short stories, novels and graphic novels (also for the blind!), he directed plays and films, and he's currently working on "his life project": The birth-to-death story of a Joy Shelley, which he weaves through a fantasy book series titled "Lost in Dreams" and an online blog and podcast titled "The Squashbuckler Diaries". But when pressed hard enough, Guy Hasson also admits to being a world specialist in a multi-billion dollar industry you probably haven't heard of.
Forget your expectations and drop your biases - this episode will redefine and challenge your preconceived notions of what it means to be a "creative professional". Give in and enjoy listening to Guy Hasson take us on an immersive journey through his stories - both fictional and real.
Weaved through it are imaginative tales of ordinary (?) characters experiencing extraordinary realities, and also some great inspiration we can all borrow for ourselves.

"If you're an expert and you give your expertise for free, people pay for it, and you help people improve whatever it is they want to do. But if you're not an expert and you're trying to get there, what you want to do is: you can have a podcast, where you document your journey there, and then it's authentic. [...] and it gives people pleasure in some way."
