Curiosity in Focus is a bi-weekly podcast that dives into the personal stories of influencers and intellectuals. I'm a curious person, and I love to learn about everything the world has to offer. As a creative and educator, I find learning personally empowering. I created Curiosity in Focus to share this passion in others and to use their stories as a lens into culture and science.

A Podcast By Curiosity In Focus.

Hosted & Edited by Daniel Kwan.
