I Love this podcast. Minnie is a delightful interviewer; tho' I don't know most of the folks she interviews, it doesn't matter. What matters is the warmth and intelligence in the conversations and I always come away feeling enlightened.

really like these interviews, keep up the good work!

Description

Minnie Driver questions everything... and her acclaim as an actor and musician is undoubtedly rooted in her enraptured observations of the world around her. Now, Minnie sits down with experts and trailblazers across disciplines and asks them the same seven mini questions, showing even small questions can uncover larger truths about happiness, failure, love, loss and belonging. In interviewing a range of characters, Minnie questions... how are we the same? How are we different? How do we become who we are? Minnie questions... because it is the questions we ask that help us understand the world around us, and ourselves.
