We all know the stories of how creative people get into the business of creating for a living, but how did they start using their imaginations in the first place? On the Beginnings podcast, writer and performer Andy Beckerman asks well-known and up-and-coming comedians, musicians, writers and artists about their earliest creative acts and about other formative childhood experiences.

On today's show we talk to musician Darwin Smith. Originally from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Darwin moved to New York after attending Wesleyan for a short time and began playing in indie rock bands like The Creaky Boards and eventually his own group Darwin Deez. Their first self-titled album made a big splash in 2010, and they're second album Songs for Imaginative People came out earlier this year. It's pretty darn sweet.
