Hey there, I'm Tim Durr and I love sharing stories with people. I believe we can all learn from hearing about one another's experiences, perspectives, and beliefs. That's the vehicle I want this podcast to be. I bring seven years of journalism experience, 27 years of being a human, and a bit of inquisition in this attempt to discuss what makes us all human. I invite you to come along for the ride.
