About This Show
Hey! I’m Luke Frazier, the host of WHY. I love to gather stories about purpose. Many of the people I interview don’t necessarily feel a strong connection to their purpose, but through the act of attention and curiosity we speak our purpose into being and are able to see it more clearly. It is my belief that the telling and sharing of stories reorients us all to our own intrinsic value. My hope is that these stories help you to build curiosity about your own purpose or strengthen your connection to the purpose of the path you walk. When we hear each other’s stories, we feel more strongly connected to one another and more deeply motivated to live with clear intention.
