About the Podcast

As individuals, we make sense of our place in the world through our own personal experiences. We weave a unique narrative, but the world we recognize comes from those who came before us. The Road to Now podcast seeks out those stories through a series of conversations with pioneering individuals. In short, we look at the road of the past to understand how we arrived in the present.
