The Up and Comers Show
About This Show
The Up and Comers Show is a podcast for Millennials who care—millennials because it’s geared toward young professional who are dealing with unique problems for the first time (like the internet, iPhones, Google, and a general cultural secularization) and who are truly just getting started in their journey of life, and it’s for those who care because you’ve got to be motivated to ask the hard questions required to find the Truth and develop a lifestyle in accordance with the Truth. Facing these same obstacles, Thane and Adam are seeking to develop a community of like-minded people to share knowledge and habits to help us on our way toward becoming wise, productive, and meaningful humans.
