The monkey is your inner critic. It’s the voice inside us that says, “This [whatever creative thing you want to do] is a mistake!” Dare to draw and the monkey will hurl insults at your work; try to write and it’ll screech.

Join Danny Gregory, artist and best-selling author of Shut Your Monkey and the artists, authors, therapists and creatives he interviews. Together we'll learn how to shut our monkeys. In this premiere episode, Danny tells you how to identify the monkey’s voice before it mugs your creative endeavors.
