Your True North
About the Show
Your True North explores how values serve as a compass, creating a life rich in meaning, accomplishments, and personal satisfaction. Just as a compass is used to determine true north, the guests on Your True North have used their values to direct their life’s journey.
Storytelling is a key feature of each interview as guests relate the story of their lives. Interviews are a powerful avenue for modern-day storytelling. In the tradition of one of our greatest oral historians, Studs Terkel, listening to people talk about their lives is an ennobling activity for both the storyteller and the listener. As you will hear, some of our guests base their values in their religious commitments, while others do not. What they all share, however, is a life that has been directed by a set of strong guiding principles or core values.
