A podcast about authentic people doing beautiful things. 

 

On The Block Radio was founded on the belief that a podcast about transformation would be relevant and engaging for a diverse modern audience. The show emerged from a simple idea, a question really: What is the relationship between creativity and transformation? This show is the beginning of an answer to that question. An answer that has as many facets as there are authentic experiences. 

Tune in, engage and hopefully be refreshed. There are some amazing people in this world, often closer than you think.
