About This Show
This isn’t your typical career day.
It’s stories from real people about life, identity, belonging, and how career fits into that picture.
Carissa Weiser left audiology and a professorship to explore personal journals of complete strangers all around the world about who they are, how they balance life, and the reminder that, underneath, the ordinary is truly extraordinary.
Every Tuesday by @CarissaWeiser.

Through a series of hilarious, challenging, and sometimes heartbreaking events, Rehaan discovers how the quest for the perfect chair ultimately brings him to a fuller understanding of both himself and what's truly important.
