The Yellow Podcast
By Giulia Woergartner
The Yellow Podcast revolves around stories about photography, the great outdoors, travel, life as a freelancer, the battles of a creative, and all the little things that drive us to follow our creative calling. I am a big believer that you can learn from anybody. Every person you meet in your life made mistakes and had their successes, everyone has a story that you can learn from. I also hope to bring the community closer together by sharing these experiences and inspiring people out there to follow their true creative call.
