Everything humanity has ever achieved once began with an idea. Ideas form our reality. And the best way to share ideas is via storytelling. Through telling stories we open the door to action for the greater good.



This is the purpose behind Changing the Story. Our podcast features a dialogue between thought leaders in which we offer a new story and a new vision as to what is possible to transform our world. Every week we consider ways in which we can improve society through the confluence of art, technology, culture, and innovation. The format is free form and casual, intended to provide a plurality of ideas to move our collective conversation toward positive change.



Please join hosts Michael Ashley and Neil Sahota on this journey!
