Amanda Palmer is an Indie Rock Goddess, Queen of Asking and an Amazing Entrepreneur.

We discuss the decision to leave her label and do her own thing – opening an office, employing staff and managing her own business. We talk about the balancing act between being an artist and business person and the ups and downs that go with that – especially in light of the news reports about Kesha over recent weeks.

We also talk about engaging with crowdfunding, alternative business models for artists and how even the Queen of Asking herself sometimes struggles with the inherent vulnerability in asking.
