"I want to challenge and evolve ideas, intuitions and convictions. This world, is quite simply, nuts, and often terrifying. Yet, this same world is incredibly beautiful, inspiring and mesmerizing. I want to get to know people who are interesting, who hold varied opinions and have life experiences different than my own.
This podcast is my humble attempt to bring a grain of sand of goodness, conversation and inspiration to the beach of human experience. This podcast is my love letter to the world, and to what it means to be human."

Honest conversations, coming from a place of good intent. Each and every guest has been an incredible source of thought provoking insights...I’ve learned so much from their experience. The host, Anuj navigates through diverse conversations bringing out something completely new and unexpected from each guest. Highly recommend if you are commuting!

U'll Love it.

Full disclosure, I am huge fan of the man known as Anuj, AND had the honour of being a guest on AWOKENWORD - none of which changes the fact that his podcast is AMAZING, intimate, in-depth, insightful, and passionate.

If U care deeply about LIFE, LOVE, and BEING; subscribe, delight and thrive! BLESS ON!

Engaging and insightful

This podcast is engaging and insightful. The host, Anuj Rastogi, has a voice that is both confident and vulnerable. From a place of kindness and compassion, he poses questions that speak to the core of the human experience and then analyzes potential answers (which he humbly calls hypotheses). He brings the listener along on this journey as he explores various topics and welcomes interesting guests. Listening to the AwokenWord brings up a personal desire in me to reflect and create. I would recommend this podcast to anyone looking for an intellectual and thought-provoking (and ultimately uplifting) podcast.
