A Podcast About Work. Vocation. Calling.

Some people know from an early age what they want to do with their lives. Others go through their entire life in search of their “life’s work,” going from job to job, career to career, never quite feeling like anything fits. Either way, a lot of people constantly deal with dissatisfaction, or impostor syndrome, feeling the happiness that eludes them is just round the corner if only they could find a way to do what they truly want to.

Is this struggle a modern problem? Is it a sign of great privilege to even have options? Is the dissatisfaction so many of us feel actually about our work, or about what we bring to it?

The Distiller is a podcast about these questions.

How do we find meaningful work?
And how do we find meaning
in the work we do?

The Distiller is a podcast about the soul of work.

What does that mean: “the soul of work?” It means conversations with regular people, about the work they do. How they found their work, and how they find themselves in and through their work. It’s a podcast about work possibilities, a podcast about work fears. We generally have a drink while we speak…because these questions are hard for a lot of us, and sometimes require some courage. We’re trying to figure out what to do. It’s that simple. To distill it down into something manageable. And hopefully hearing these conversations will help you make a little sense of it for yourself.

Well how kind of you. The Distiller is a labor of love for everyone on the team. All our time and effort is voluntary, because we believe these conversations are meaningful, and that examining our relationship to work is important. As such, all the costs associated with the show come out of our own pockets. Website hosting, equipment, even drinks for the guests during shows. If you’d like to help cover some of those costs, even for as little as a dollar a month, visit our Patreon page, and pledge your support. You’ll be helping us keep The Distiller coming your way regularly, and we’ll send you a little something in return.
