I'm Thom Pollard, a filmmaker, adventurer and mountaineer. My journeys have taken me around the globe, from Easter Island to the summit of Mount Everest. In my travels I've come to develop an awareness of the nature of people, what makes them tick and the steps that it takes to achieve happiness, no matter what the circumstances. I believe that positive people make a difference. Have you ever wondered why true happiness exudes from some people while others are steeped in loss and depression? When we begin to live and speak our inner truth it is only natural to walk our path with discernment and passion. Happiness will walk hand in hand. On Baker Street with Thom Pollard we explore the real meaning of existence, how to unlock simple truths that keep most of the seven billion inhabitants of this planet in ignorance. We'll meet special guests and influencers who have made their intentions a reality. I'll also share many of my incredible adventures that I share in my public presentations. Stop in and pull up a chair! Make yourself comfortable. Timely topics and issues include adventure, religion, the environment, music, sports, success stories in business, politics and life.

A soothing auditory journey

If Snap Judgement and The Tim Ferris Show had a baby, you would get Baker Street. A clever mix of smooth tunes, insightful interviews and storytelling; Baker Street is an immersive audio companion for anyone looking to relax and reflect on life. Keep the episodes coming, I am hooked!

A good man

Baker Street is a wonderful experience, shared by a good man. I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Thom, and everything I hear on Baker Street is just so Thom. Quintessentially genuine and generous. Baker Street is a metaphor for all that is good in one’s journey.

Inspiring and interesting.

Even if you have it all and know it all I think that you will enjoy Baker Street. Thom is taking a thoughtful look at what it means to follow one’s dreams and live a life of thought and purpose. While doing so he is also introducing the audience to a variety of people from a range of disciplines; the message being that we all strive or can strive to be our best and live as true of a life as we can.
