We’re really excited to introduce you to The Knowledge Project Podcast, which explores ideas that help expand your mind, live deliberately, and master the best of what other people have already figured out. Produced by Shane Parris of Farnam Street, an organization that helps people develop an understanding of how the world really works, the podcast covers everything from decision making to living life more fully. It features interviews about science and the humanities that will help you connect ideas and explore meaning.

Pretty powerful, huh?
