Each episode host LOREN KLING sits down with a different guest and asks them to share 5 stories, events, or experiences that had an impact on their life. Paths altered by a person, a place, or a moment in time. The format of the show is unique in that the guests have already thought about the questions (what are the “5 Things” that changed their lives) and the answers (why those moments are important to them) before they ever sit down to chat. Previous guests come from a wide range of backgrounds: actors, authors, writers, mentors, teachers, doctors, animal advocates, and business owners.
