The T. A. Barron Podcast
Lifting our hearts, one story at a time —
Inspiration from nature, heroes, and creativity.
In season 2, we journey far and wide to the minds of courageous and visionary leaders like Jane Goodall and Isabel Allende, guided by the uplifting wisdom of T. A. Barron. We explore the wonders and inspiration of nature (as well as the challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss) and the power of young people to make a positive difference in our world. Plus, you’ll hear T. A.’s amazing stories from his three decades as a wandering bard — as well as his views on the wonders of “light”, as we can find both in the stars and in the eyes of a loved one.
Season 2 episodes are released every Monday beginning October 2 through mid-December, 2023!

After graduating from UCLA School of Theater Film and Television, Carolyn fell in love with guitar and devoted the following decade to songwriting. Known for her fairylike melodies, she has toured the world sharing stages with Lang Lang, Karla Bonoff, The Lil Smokies, and many more. Finding solace in Colorado, Carolyn founded the indie-folk band The Heartstring Hunters, nominated for best folk band by Denver Westword, and later became a vocalist for the Daniel Rodriguez Band (Elephant Revival) where she performed across the country, over public radio, and on his latest record Sojourn of a Burning Sun. She recently released a synth-pop album Lovelight, that explores themes of desire, codependency, and sensuality, and published her first book of poems titled Photographic Memory Camera which sold out of its small batch print.
