Always wanting to hear more

This show scratches my philosophical itch and then leaves me pondering even more.

Fantastic concept, engaging host

Conversations around hot button topics have become increasingly difficult to engage in with those on a different side. This podcast provides an opportunity for us all to consider another perspective in a non-threatening and grace-filled way. Luke offers intentional and thoughtful questions, allowing the guest’s story to be respected. He never gets in the way of that story, giving space for them to tell it as they wish. By framing these challenging topics around personal stories, he is gently showing us all to be more open.

Intriguing interviews that challenge you to examine your own beliefs

Luke T. Harrington has created the most interesting podcast I have stumbled onto in a long time. He seeks out people who have done a complete 180 in a core belief. His non-judgmental but unapologetically probing interview style digs into the root causes for why each guest believed XYZ and what caused them to shift to believing LMNOP. This podcast is a refreshing break from the trend toward a polarizing agree-or-disagree attitude so prevalent in our world today. Open your mind, launch this podcast, and you’ll find yourself thinking more deeply about your own beliefs and what has caused you to change your mind...or not.
