The Pursuit of Something Podcast

The Pursuit of Something is not your typical podcast.  There’s no theme or simple focal point, but rather an attempt to pursue what’s currently in focus.  It’s a podcast for people with questions.  We go deep on a wide range of topics with the intent to analyze and break down the human experience.
