In our productivity obsessed culture we struggle to justify investing time or money into something that doesn’t have a defined outcome—this podcast is a journey to turn the lens of curiosity back on itself and nudge the rest of us 'grown-ups' to take their curiosity more seriously.

One of my Favorite Podcasts
This is one of my favorite podcasts. Jonny Miller asks wonderful questions and deeply listens to his interviewers. Each episode is a lush conversation that often spans a variety of topics!
A gentle, challenging cure for loneliness
Perhaps unwittingly, this podcast is a cure for isolation and loneliness, because in its wise, gentle, and generous way, it illuminates how interconnected we all are. Jonny Miller and his guests reveal that when we open ourselves to broader experience and curiosity, we amplify our contribution to a harmony that extends far beyond ourselves and our present understanding of the world. The lessons offered here are exceedingly kind, challenging, and hopeful.
Deep Dive Thoughts
This podcast has become one of my dearest friends. I savor every conversation, and ruminate on them for days and weeks. Jonny is a profoundly inquisitive and wise person in his own right, and it is a privilege to be a fly on the wall during his deep dive talks with other curious humans. Somehow intensely philosophical, but also exceptionally lighthearted and full of integrity.
