10,000 HOURS is an interview series about craft, creativity and putting in our time.
In his book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell examined and popularized the theory that any given skill takes ten thousand hours to master. How accurate is that? More importantly, if there’s any truth to the theory, how does it change the way we look at doing work and putting in time?
Brought to you by entrepreneur Grant Spanier and writer Vince Koci, 10,000 HOURS is a weekly discussion about the different ways people work hard to do what they love.
Joined by guests from around the world with diverse backgrounds— topics will touch on everything from entrepreneurship, creativity, productivity, personal philosophy, living your passion, and everything in-between.

Excellent show about creative powerhouses
10,000 Hours does a fantastic job of showcasing creative leaders and diving deep into issues that affect us all as makers and creators. Awesome job, Grant and Vince!
I. Can’t. Stop. Listening.
Grant and Vince are so knowledgable and interesting. I love the Minneapolis creative scene, and it’s great to listen to two people who are so ingrained. Top notch guests, topics, and segues. You guys are awesome. Keep it up.
So much potential
The idea and format of this show is almost exactly what I want as a creative and graphic designer. But honestly, it is super frustrating how the hosts constantly talk over the guests. I appreciate their insight but I’m here for the wisdom of the people being interviewed. I thought that if I came back after a few months they would be a little more considerate of their guests and their listeners but I was wrong. I guess I will check back later. Seriously guys, just chill out a bit.
