The Introvert, Dear Podcast is devoted to helping introverts live more peaceful, meaningful lives. We're here to remind you that you don't have to be an extrovert to be happy — and there's nothing wrong with being quiet and spending time alone. This biweekly show is hosted by Jenn Granneman, author of The Secret Lives of Introverts and founder of IntrovertDear.com, and Bo Miller, founder of iSpeakPeople.com and The INFJ Personality Show. Featuring prevalent introvert influencers and experts, we help introverts (and those who love them) understand themselves better and grow.

I started listening to this podcast at a time in my life where I was feeling very broken. Hearing about others who think and feel as I do, tips and strategies about how to stay true to who I am, while navigating this extroverted world, has been just what I needed
Insightful, honest, encouraging
Really love this podcast! Jenn does a great job bringing on other introverts and Myers-Briggs nerds who do an excellent job breaking down all things introverts. One of my favorite podcasts!
What a savior!
I'm in my 40s and thanks to Jenn, her book, and this podcast, I can finally know "me" better. Thank you. Now that I know "me" I can be much more efficient in my life. I will always be a loyal listener!
