Adam J. Kurtz's Audiobook Picks

"There's just something so intimate about hearing a voice over your earphones, especially when it's the author themselves. Here, I've collected audiobooks by guests of my YOU ARE HERE (FOR NOW) podcast, a similarly-intimate experience as we discuss life, change, fear, creativity, and figuring out who you are." —Adam J. Kurtz, author of You Are Here (For Now) and Things Are What You Make of Them.
