Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
Conversations of Humanness + Creativity | Humanitou is about humanness and creativity. These interviews are about cultivating a space for vulnerable, courageous dialogue and sharing. And in the process, I’m challenging all of us to truly listen, with openness and empathy, to others’ stories and to hear ourselves in them. Together, we will challenge the truths we hold about ourselves and each other. The Humanitou Podcast is about connection and empowerment through conversations of humanness and creativity, yours and mine.
