A slightly different kind of episode this week. I've decided to try a 'creativity clinic', answering listeners' questions submitted online. If you have something you'd love to know, or an area you'd like me to tackle, get in touch by email â€“ firstname.lastname@example.org, on twitter @hackcircus, facebook hackcircuspodcast, or instagram @hackcircus.
This week questions range from favourite colours to world domination.
I have a lot of experience of making all sorts of different kinds of things, and if I don't know something, I probably know something who does. So send your questions in! I would love to help people out if I can.

Flamenco dancer Rosamaria Cisneros Kostic discusses her craft, how to stay grounded, calm and physically aware in a hectic world, and the fascinating dance/tech research she's involved with at C-DaRE in Coventry. Rosa grew up in the U.S. but has lived and worked all over the world.
She's a professional dancer, dance historian and critic, Roma scholar, Flamenco historian and peace activist. If you want to check out her beautiful Flamenco skills for yourself, Rosa's dance film Saeta: The Mourning is online here.
