Thanks for listening! Attention Engineer is a show where I seek to make the best use of my own valuable time and attention by having deep conversations with fellow artists about creativity, grit and determination.

My aim is to consistently remind you - and remind myself - that creativity really is for everyone….because it really is. Let’s kick that inner critic where it hurts, and have a thought provoking time in the process. You don’t *have* to make something of your own after listening to this show - there’s no homework! - but please know that you can if you want to.
In this conversation, we discuss: writing about the truth, rejecting society’s expectations and demonstrating alternative ways of living; finding creative freedom in limitations; sensitivity as a superpower; and home recording – Juliana’s tough transition from analogue to digital recording, and how her brilliant new album “Blood” is her most misanthropic yet.
