You're listening to Ticked – a podcast that explores the motivations, and frustrations, of driven individuals. We are all quick to make a list of the things that tick us off. And, surprisingly, we can all get behind the same irritating list, like it has some unifying power. Are we as quick to make a list of inspiring things that set us apart, those things that make us tick? What sparks your creativity, your passion, your drive to tell your story? In this podcast, hear from everyday people with everyday ticks…some that unite us on our bad days and some that identify us as we pursue individual passions.

SO fun and SO INTERESTING to see what makes people tick!
I was a guest on Ticked, #127 and it was absolutely the best experience I have had yet as a guest on a podcast! Ben is absolutely amazing and allows one to express what makes you tick and what makes you TICKED off. He is so funny and knowledgeable. YOU GUYS---LISTEN! So full of great content and laughs as well.
Great guests. Interesting, provoking fun. Ben is a great host.
Honest and relatable - A staple
Ben has such a youthful curiosity with his guests, I love listening to his questions as much as the guests answers. Very insightful with just a pinch of humor to make it feel human. A diamond in the rough.
