How The Show Started

We often listen to podcasts and watch videos about people making all the amazing achievements, but often times, we are too far off from getting to where they are. We want to tell stories in a different way – we tell the stories of creatives who are still making it.

Of those people, some of them have great stories full of a-ha moments and we are so grateful that they agreed to share them with us.
