Intrinsic is a podcast about what makes life worth living. It’s about the innate value of each individual and the fundamental motivation that drives us.

What if we could align this value and motivation with our jobs? What if we could support ourselves and our families doing what we are good at and enjoy doing? How would that affect our society? What would such a society look like? These are the questions we’ll be asking in Intrinsic.

Intrinsic is produced by Forge Collective, an alliance of creators for radical honesty. Theme music and sound engineering by Jon Notar (jonnotar.com).

    Lifting the Community in Dark Times

    Lifting the Community in Dark Times

    Guests: Christine Hein and Michael Berg

    Christine is the Executive Director at People’s Place in Kingston, a not-for-profit organization feeding, clothing and responding to the needs of the people in Ulster County with kindness, compassion and the preservation of human dignity since 1972. She is one of the busiest people I know, as the needs for their services never let up. But she handles everything with grace and warmth that make you feel hopeful.

    Michael is the executive director of Family of Woodstock, serving the various needs that include intervention, prevention, food insecurity, and more, in the Hudson Valley. He is truly the face of the organization and of the true spirit of Woodstock. His compassion for humanity and justice is exemplary of the peace movement that began in the 60s and still lives on in the backstreets of Woodstock.
