    In this short solo episode, Adam Williams explores the mind-bogglingness of the Universe and our human arrogance to think it gives a fuck about what we give a foolish fuck about. He wades into our relatively insignificant places as humans in the vast universe and considers what our true significance actually can be.

Episode 117 with Victoria

This is the only episode I’ve listened to. I’ve been aware of Victoria and her work for some time now, but this podcast effectively expounded on it in a very thoughtful way. I can presume that other episodes would be equally interesting.

Heart and Ear!!!

Adam is so intentional and diligent with his interviews. He really knows how to center his guests and get to the heart of both the message and connection. Please share this podcast! It is truly one of the best out here if you want to get deep, charged and inspired!

Adam is brilliant!

I have know Adam for three years and I am blown away with the evolution of his creative adventures. He interviews and references other creative artists, but if you want a real, down to earth, honest, inspiring and motivating conversation, Adam is brilliant. He is the voice of the creative future. I look forward to hearing all of the interviews with others and his own conversations that help us overcome any and all obstacles to being the most creative people we can possibly be. Thank you so much Adam for being vulnerable, honest and real. You are truly a gift. ❤️
