Best podcast find in ages
Interviews about “story, strategy, & structure” intentional communities and the folks building them!
Like “How I built this” with more personality. Also, instead of ‘startups you know’, the subjects are delightful communities that you might not have known.
Fascinating stories, fresh hosts and easy takeaways
I love this podcast! In a society that values individualism so highly, it’s nice to be reminded that community matters, and building it is possible!
