The Human Project is founded on a simple premise - that everyone has a story, and that if you take the time to listen, that story emerges. It's a biweekly, independent podcast hosted by 22 year-old Pedro da Silva. Join him every two weeks as he sits down with people from all walks of life, to hear their stories about everything from first love to strange encounters to finding home in a foreign place. Each season, the people whose stories you hear share a single aspect of their identities with one another. The Human Project is always about the person behind the aspect.

A breath of fresh air

Pedro da Silva does a beautiful job reminding us of the humanity in each and every one of us. The Human Project is raw and allows us to see into the lives of people from various walks of life. With immigrants being questioned, terrorized, and having their basic rights increasingly threatened, it is more important than ever to be reminded that immigrants and children of immigrants are people just as much as anyone else. Pedro’s podcast demonstrates exactly that, that every single person experiences fear, love, sadness, joy, loneliness, surprise, and the span of emotions. There is always something we have in common with others, even complete strangers. Every single person has a story to tell and something to teach us.

I especially love the way in which Pedro structures this podcast. He begins by showing us a snapshot of someone’s life, then he more formally introduces them and provides some context. He asks a variety of questions about people’s lived experiences while intermittently including background info to help the listener better understand the interviewee’s personal narrative. With his smooth, gentle guitar-playing in the background, he helps set a reflective mood. One of the things I love most is that he lets the listener hear background noise during the interviews, boisterous laughter, awkward silences, and hesitant responses. It’s almost as if I the listener am witnessing the conversation as it happens.

I eagerly await each new episode and am so excited to continue hearing more fascinating narratives from the Human Project.

You can't fake authenticity nor can you force the mundane to be interesting. This podcast manages to do both, in an accessible, riveting, and easy-to-digest package. I loved it and look forward to more.
