The Opposite of Small Talk

. . . a celebration of Self

About us

Real conversations with real people

The Path to Authenticity starts from the assertion that we wrest our true power from our individuality.

We talk to various types of writers and artists as well as therapists, coaches, teachers, entrepreneurs, and professionals of all kinds. Our guests possess one common trait.

They’re people who know who they are.

We talk about what makes them who they are, how they became who they are, and how we might become truer expressions of who we are.
