From porn stars to empathy researchers, and cartoonists to climate scientists, no topic is out of bounds. Listen and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
WELCOME TO THE ART OF ASKING EVERYTHING, the PODCAST
Do you know that I love to talk to people? About hard and uncomfortable things? Well, I do. For this podcast, I sit down with (or occasionally, phone) guests from all walks of life: doctors, sex workers, musicians, writers, teachers, painters, parents, activists, TED speakers, friends….basically anyone who wants to have a deep and honest conversation with me about The Big Stuff. This podcast is professionally produced and includes music, tangents, and best of all: NO BRANDING OR PAID ADVERTISEMENTS because we are 100% patron-supported. My patrons also get access to the podcast book club, blogs and behind-the-scenes stuff, plus a live chat with me and almost every guest to ask us their own questions and catch up with each other, so please join to support us...and keep us ad-free! Listen and subscribe to the podcast: https://linktr.ee/AskingEverything and join the Patreon: http://patreon.com/amandapalmer.Read More
