We believe in the pursuit of growth - mentally, physically, and spiritually. The desire to expand our worldview and be patient with unfamiliar perspectives. To use audio as a means of capturing the collective wisdom of people and practicing the art of listening.
We believe that although we may all live different lives, we hold universal experiences which allow us to emotionally connect with everyone. To have an unquenchable curiosity for the emotions, experiences, and wisdom of others.
We believe in the value of letting seemingly mundane conversations evolve into something greater. The types of conversations where a slick awkward silence sparks the ambiance needed for a moment of intimacy & vulnerability. The moment that allows us to feel seen, understood, and hopeful. We’ve learned that hearing the experiences of others can be what teach us the most about ourselves.
We believe in risking everything for authenticity. To let go of love, admiration, and respect, if it means bringing us closer to who we are at our core.
We want to do the opposite of what you think a podcast should look and sound like. Does every show need to be made in the same boring studio? We're making every episode a visual feast for the eyes, because let's be real, if you're gonna listen to people talk for hours on end, at least have cute visuals! And don't even get us started on episode length - we're keeping it short and sweet. If you're not sure if it's a podcast or a show... well, good.
Guiding and supporting teenagers through the power of media.

We exist to comfort you during rough times, to be the first place you turn to when you don’t have the answers. We want to give your heart a hug when there's no one else around. To sit in the rain together and soak in the sun when it shines. We’re in love with preserving those precious memories, impactful conversations & feelings of our shared humanity that we often wish we could relive. We believe we're all interesting.
Want to share your story with the world? Tell us your name, age, and a topic you enjoy talking about and we'll reach out when we have a show we think you'd be a good fit for. No experience necessary! (Must be based in LA or NY)
