Shortly after Thomas started taking portraiture seriously, he realized that he spend more time talking with my subjects than photographing them and it might make more sense, when inviting people to have their portrait taken, to focus on people he wanted to talk to. Respect was his compass. He started to invite people whose business, art, or general demeanor he found admirable. Within the first week, he noticed that not only were things going exceedingly well for his business, but his mentality was much clearer. It began a season of insane personal growth which lead him to think, "If these conversations are so helpful to me, there have to be other people out there that could benefit from them as well" and thus the podcast was born.
