The WILD with Sarah Wilson Podcast
Wild is a global conversation with the world’s leading philosophers, creatives, poets, scientists (and at least one nun!) that goes to the heart of how to live fully on this one wild and precious planet. Her guests and topics are era-defining and always “wild”.
Margaret Atwood gets fired up about creating a utopia; Pop singer Sia riffs on the gifts of living with bipolar; Peter Singer talks about effective altruism; the nun from Dead Man Walking discusses what a prisoner on death row can teach us about love.
Join Sarah as she wrestles a path to the beautiful answers.
“My favourite podcast to engage in the topics that matter, and be reminded there are great minds out there working together to find answers for the complexity of today’s world. Each episode motivates me to take that next step to support the important issues.”
