Constant Wonder: The Best Way of Living

Marcus Smith, content manager and host of “Thinking Aloud” and “Constant Wonder” shares his insight in this exclusive interview.

He says that our lives are more than just information. In fact, he believes Constant Wonder is an antidote for hectic living.

Marcus also doesn’t believe in balance. He says, “There are endless opportunities and we can’t pursue them all. We have to say ‘no’ to so many opportunities… Once you start saying ‘no’ judicially, you are pushing away even some nice opportunities; and the remaining opportunities are the chances for more deliberate, more qualitatively satisfying experiences.”

Finally, you’ll learn how music becomes symbolic to the show, Constant Wonder.

Don’t miss this exclusive interview with Marcus. Watch now. Be sure to check out Constant Wonder weekdays at 4PM ET (2PM MT).

The Apple Seed: The Intersection Between Storytelling and Real Life

Sam Payne, producer and host of The Apple Seed, lends his insight into storytelling – including sharing his own story! 

Sam says “I think the best story is always the story that speaks to the need you have at the moment. I have a saying that not every story needs a moral, but every story needs a reason and sometimes your reason is just you need a story that makes you laugh, sometimes you need healing for deep wounds, sometimes you need to learn about the world… The best story is the story that respond best to the needs you have at the moment.”
