Thank You Adam Davidson!

Love the idea of this podcast. Intimate and engaging interviews with creatives as they follow their passions. Very relatable to everyday listeners.

Truly unique in a very cliche podcast space

This show touches on passion over payout. Fundamentally a unique show which highlights individual journeys into personal specific expertise. Refreshing to hear stories based on turning interests into careers... but focusing heavily on identifying the interest. Lovely show.
