The important writers, actors, musicians, athletes, scientists, researchers, and thinkers of our time are known for certain things—their Nobel-winning area of study, those big superhero movies they made, or the book they wrote that sold five million copies. But what about those things that they're deeply, obsessively into that we don't know about? That's what I'm interested in, and that's what I'm asking our guests about on the brand-new podcast, My Particular Fascination.
Do you find it fun to listen to interesting people talk about the super-specific things that they're deeply interested in? Have I got the podcast for you.
