I listened to this podcast by Kevin Kaiser and Robert Liparulo and it was great. The podcast wasn't meant to be about creativity, but they talked a lot about creativity. It was great.
They talked about how alpha waves are what your brain makes right before you have a good idea.
They talked about the decline of creativity because children watch too much media (visual media) and how school is focused too much on quantifiable results (read math and science).
They talk about quiet and solitude and deep focus and boredom being very important to creativity and art.
It's an hour commitment to listen to (less if you listen to it at higher speed) but it's really good stuff. Enjoy!
