I’m a little late to the game when it comes to podcasts. But I have found several channels that I just can’t get enough of. And one of them is Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations. This one was an interview she did with Brian Grazer who has produced some of the most famous movies such as A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13 and The Da Vinci Code. In this interview, Oprah sits down with Brian to discuss his book, “A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life,” in which he writes about how expanding our curiosity should be as much a part of our culture as creativity and innovation. Brian not only attributes his success to curiosity but also says it’s his daily spiritual practice. “It does get me into the place of truth within the person I’m connecting with,” he tells Oprah. “It’s the deepest emotional connection.” Plus, Brian reveals how to optimize your curiosity in order to live a more satisfying, connected and soulful life.
