Who Are We?

We’re two thinkers who met in a philosophy meetup group, became friends, and decided to start a podcast.

We connected because of similar values. We both loved reading books that explored living purposefully. Our friendship grew as our conversations centered on how to improve the quality of life in our society.

A close friend urged one of us to start a podcast, and said if we did, he’d do all the technical stuff. Two and a half years later, here we are.

We believe that the modern world values things, dead, inanimate things, at the expense of the living. And as this preference for the non-living becomes more poignant, we, the living, suffer.

We take our listeners on a journey into the awareness of our current societal values. We discuss ways we can rethink the way we do life in order to prioritize the living. We discuss writers and thinkers who have said the same things. We interview those who can attest to it all.

Lacey Delayne is an advocate for humanistic values and rethinking the way we do life. She wants to see a society that better accommodates our human needs.

Sonya Larrea is an avid reader and seeker of good conversation. She is passionate about incremental changes that move the world to a better place.

Modern culture values the dead. And it's making us sick.
