About the show

Welcome to "Boldly Going: Creative, Brilliant, Inspirational People of the Universe on Planet Earth." If you’re anything like me, you crave inspiration. There is something within us that longs for heroes to rise amongst the ordinary to show us that we can all be better. It’s why we love the underdog, why we passionately tell the incredible story and why we flock to the superhero genre. We need the "creative, brilliant, inspirational people of the universe living on Planet Earth" to do what they do, to drive us to do what we can do. The reality is that we are all creative, brilliant and inspirational in our own way. The difference is many of us never “boldly go” and show it. That’s what this podcast is about – sharing with you conversations I have with people all over the world that inspire because they are boldly going and proving the critics wrong. #BoldlyGoing
