We are on a mission to collect wisdom nuggets. Our goal is to spotlight people with stories concerning honesty, courage, love, transcendence and everything in between. If we sit down with the right people, ask the right questions, we will come away with a piece of their wisdom to launch ourselves on our own hero's journey. Whether you're listening on your morning commute, or lounging on a Sunday morning, grab a cup of coffee, get comfortable, and join us in our journey to collect wisdom nuggets.

Love you, Schiller!
It's beyond wonderful to hear my great friend, the one and only, Zach Schiller put conversations he has with people every day into the form of a podcast. The episodes feel thought-provoking, soothing, relatable, and inspiring - and it's awesome to hear voices of college colleagues and friends. Love listening to the important work of forging relationships and sharing narratives/experiences.
Informative and Fun
I have listened to a good chunk of the In The Area catalogue now. Zach Schiller has done a wonderful job, hosting a range of guests, that bring their own flavor and story to each episode. During each episode, I learn something new, and I always laugh and enjoy. This is an insightful, fun, and well-produced podcast.
