- Three Uncanny Four Adds “The Passion Economy” Podcast to its Growing Show Roster
Weekly episodes available across all major podcast platforms starting Wednesday, June 3.
New York, NY – May 20, 2020 – Leading podcast company Three Uncanny Four today announced that The Passion Economy—the podcast about everyday people who have cracked the code to success in the 21st century economy—has joined its show roster and will debut weekly episodes starting Wednesday, June 3 for the first time outside a paywall.
Hosted by Adam Davidson, the Peabody-Award winning co-creator of NPR’s Planet Money and a successful journalist and author who covered economics for The New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine, The Passion Economy is based on Davidson’s acclaimed 2019 book of the same name and explores how individuals from all walks of life have overcome professional and financial roadblocks and created new paths of fulfillment by channeling their entrepreneurial spirits and pursuing their passions. The trailer is available now.
Each episode will spotlight the stories of people who push the idea of career and business success beyond the fetishizing of billionaires and Fortune 500 CEOs – a drug dealer turned fitness mogul, a teacher making waves in the fashion industry, farmers with creative vision, a former Iraqi translator who reinvented himself as a D.C.-area limo company operator – to offer lessons that listeners can apply right away to their own life and business.
Said Davidson, “Passion Businesses and Passion Careers often emerge through times of crisis—when an old, familiar way, no longer works. And they also come out of times of self-reflection, periods when people have the time to think and wonder and experiment. This current crisis, for all its real pain, is forcing us time to look at how things are done normally and imagine how they might be done differently. This show is about people who have figured out a way to thrive during a time of chaos and uncertainty by building around their skills and interests. Now is exactly when people need inspiration and clear models of how to succeed in an economy that is operating according to different and much scarier rules.”
Listeners can subscribe to The Passion Economy across all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and more. Click here to listen to the trailer. The podcast’s companion book, The Passion Economy also outlines Davidson’s perspective on how to thrive in the 21st century economy and is available now.
