- "What is the biggest lesson you've learned in life so far?" Insight in Progress is a weekly podcast where each episode is an in-depth conversation with a new guest all about their answer to that question and more.
- Most episodes also include the second question, “What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned in your...” creative endeavors, career, pursuits of passion or notable accomplishments, IF it is different from the guest’s "biggest life lesson." This allows for delving into more specific topics, depending on the guest’s background.
- Although guests are given time in advance to think about their answers, I do not know what the guest’s lessons are before we record the interview, it is a genuine discovery and conversation.
- The tone of the show is just like life, often funny, sometimes serious and occasionally both at the same time. It is all about being in the present of each conversation.
- The show is not about me, or even the guests in and of themselves, it is simply about relating to each other through our collective lessons and experiences in life.
- I view every episode as an “audio documentary,” in that they are edited for length and focus based on the theme established in each conversation.
- Insight in Progress is hosted by me, Jason Street.
- My background is in visual arts and film, but I am literally a “student of life.”
- I am passionate about several topics, such as film, food and comedy, but the common link is that I am passionate about discussing them all, as well as life itself.
- “Why should I listen to this?” We are all trying to figure life out and it can be interesting or even helpful to hear what others have learned about living it. If you’re into introspection or you enjoy good focused conversations about life, this is for you.
- “Why should I take advice from a (type of guest I am questionable about)?” This is not an “advice show.” It’s a “relating to each other show,” and no matter what walk of life you come from, someone can probably relate to the life lessons you have learned, whether through commonalities or contrasts.
- I like to think of the show as building a mosaic of several different people’s lessons and seeing the connections, similarities and differences as the picture gets larger.
- The goal is for the show to be something that anyone can listen to and gain something from. Although the show aims to be fun, I take its value to the listener very seriously.
- Look for a new episode every Monday!
- The views and opinions expressed in the interviews are solely those of the individuals being interviewed and are not necessarily the same as mine. In other words, just because a guest says something does not necessarily mean I agree with or condone it!
- Please note that these can be frank conversations and may sometimes include explicit language and topics.
- I laugh a lot, talk fast and tend to censor my expletives by using only the first letter of the word. In addition, depending on the day and the conversation, I can be very serious or very silly.
