While the podcast itself is centered around self-improvement and growing through challenges, the guests seem to vary so widely. Below are the answers to your most Needed and Known questions. If yours isn’t on the list, add it in the comments below!
Who are the guests on Needed and Known?
On the Needed and Known podcast I interview a variety of friends. Guests are selected based on their personal stories and willingly agree to be interviewed. I’m not a friend who begs others into discomfort. Many guests are generally positive because that’s who I surround myself with. But they also share openly share their struggles and challenges.
Do you know them all well?
No. While most people I interview I do know well, some guests are people who are field experts I respect. I also ask “big” or “important” people who I think will say “no” because why the heck not?!
Do you agree with everything every guest says?
Who is coming up with these questions?! ???? Of course not! I strive to surround myself with people I don’t necessarily agree with, but with whom I can have deep and meaningful conversations that propel us toward improving together. I encourage you to do the same!
Many of your guests seem to be Christian…
That’s fair. But I also have friends who are atheist, Muslim, Jewish, LGBTQAI+, and so on. As with any interview I want to allow anyone I interview (or befriend) space to be themselves. The purpose of Needed and Known isn’t to broadcast my perspective beyond what it looks like to practice truly listening to others and seeing their perspectives. If I can help others practice hearing from those they don’t understand or think they agree with, then my goal is met.
