At the inception of The Nantucket Project, co-founder Tom Scott was told: “the heart of your work is creating conversations.” That was in 2011. Seven years later, it’s all happening. Along with New York Times best-selling author, Kelly Corrigan, Tom speaks about the benefits of connecting with people through honest and meaningful conversation. 2018 marks the introduction of TNP’s newest arm, the neighborhood project, where the people behind the beloved annual gathering on Nantucket bring the event to living rooms around the country. As Tom promises: “We’re going to go out and continue to look for meaning, package it and share it.”

Episode 2 - Wow
Listening to this and loving it. Like the pacing and how there is time to hear the whole story from the guests. They're not being rushed along, or redirected. So much comes out when the space is provided. I'd heard part of the story elsehwere, but this provided the chance to hear it in its fullness.
