A moving podcast

I wasn’t sure I wanted or needed any sort of “self-help” or “self-improvement.” But luckily, this podcast is entirely different. It’s a powerful and moving conversation that encourages you to experience great truths. Try it out! It may give some comfort or peace that you need, even for an hour. Sometimes that’s all you need.

The power of audio

I don’t what the past two reviews are even about so if you’re reading this start with this one.

This is an incredible experience. Emphasis on the word experience. Listen to this when you have the time and space to be present. On a calm walk or intentionally in your home. Be open.

This series is an excellent example of how audio can transport you, especially in the right hands. Not only is the writing and the project itself well thought out, from concept to interviewees and how they weave together, the sound design is masterful and beautiful.

I’m going to send this to as many people as I can. As a lesson in shifting worldview. As a lesson in listening. As a lesson in practicing connecting with others across time and space and deeper into ourselves, and coming out with calmer and stronger insight to shape a better world.

The first meditation exercise unleashed a powerful emotional response in me.

Thank you Long Time Project, thank you Scenery, thank you Headspace studios, and all of the guests. I can’t imagine the work that went into this. Thank you to everyone who played a part. I’m sad I haven’t listened sooner but I believe this came into my life at the right time.

Not really groundbreaking

While this podcast does present some interesting ideas about viewing our lives over a longer timeframe, it seems to really be concerned with convincing listeners to take action on issues such as climate change and inequality and disparaging our modern economy and systems as unsustainable. While these issues are important and worth thinking about, it would be nice to hear some balance in the ideas and interviews.
