09: Passion and Purpose

Following your passion is a phrase we hear constantly, but is that possible for everyone?  What does passion mean to you?  Does everyone have a passion?  In this podcast we engage in an animated discussion about the nature of passion, how it differs from purpose, and the importance of both passion and purpose for today’s society and future generations.  We also talk about some of the things we are passionate about with our special guest and Executive Producer, Shawn Meaux.
