We aim to have a positive impact, to share interesting conversations, and to gain insight into our collective humanity. We seek to investigate the tiny, huge moments that comprise people's lives, and through these contemplations, move toward common ground. In each episode, we ask a question. We talk to experts and ordinary people. We reflect on their experiences and perspectives and relate them to our own. And even if we don't always find the answer, there's a sense of peace when we relax into the question.
