TEDx producer, filmmaker and rabble rouser, Suzanne Taylor looks for what could get the world to massively change. We need to deal with the good of the whole and not just with personal gain. Change minds and we change the world. From physicists to spiritual leaders, theater curators, social activists, professors, vegan luminaries, wealth managers, and more, Suzanne probes thought-shapers of many stripes who can help us become who we need to be in the world we need to create. We’re in it together and we need conversations as if our lives depended on them, because very possibly they do. This description is from Searching for Unity in Everything.

Suzanne Taylor is looking for what could get the world to massively change. How can we get to where we are dealing with the good of the whole instead of focusing on personal gain? In her podcast, Suzanne is talking to people who could help us become who we need to be in the world we need to create. She won’t be dealing as much with issues as with our mindset. Change minds and we change the world. The podcast is meant to involve thinking people in conversations about what could be done. Let her know if what you hear matches your thoughts, or if you’ve gotten a better understanding of our predicament, or if you’re inspired to think differently or to act to change the world. Or, perhaps you disagree with what’s said and you have better ideas than the ones you hear, or you have things to add to wise up the rest of us. All that is worth sharing. And, ask other people to listen, to inform and to inspire them. We’re in it together and we need conversations as if our lives depended on them because, very possibly, they do.
