Live The Questions
About This Show
This show is an attempt to document how some people court challenges with persistence. It’s about how their struggles have led them where they are, and how they think about life, and work, and the world around them. There are no hacks. No tactics. Just lives. And their itches. Interests and obsessions. Questions and discoveries. It’s an effort to provide a window on to our own struggles, and hence, trigger an inquiry towards a more meaningful life.
