Baker Street with Thom Pollard

By Thom Pollard

Inspirational, intimate and unfiltered “Stories That Inspire”. From adventurers to NY Times Best-selling authors, leaders in the entertainment industry, comedians, musicians and Jungian analysts, topics and conversations discuss what living a meaningful life is, how successful people make their intentions a reality by following the core passion of their hearts. Connected, engaged, passionate people inspire us to discover our own truths, and help make our lives more meaningful. I'm Thom Pollard, a filmmaker, mountaineer and inspirational speaker. My journeys have taken me around the globe, from Easter Island to the top of Mount Everest and everywhere in between. I'm fascinated with the nature of people and the human condition, what makes us tick, how extraordinary individuals find meaning even in the midst of tragedy.
