Cast/Crew. Besides being the creator and host of Humanitou, Adam Williams is the show’s writer, interviewer, producer, editor, photographer and designer.
The Creator. After having gone from soldier to journalist in his 20s, and then transitioned from journalism to content marketing in his 30s, Adam left a corporate career as head of content marketing for a global manufacturer, essentially “retiring” from that life, at 41.
He created Humanitou in 2017 as an online, text-based interview and photography project. There are 75+ of those interviews archived at humanitou.com. He started an apprenticeship in yoga the same year. He began teaching yoga and showing art in galleries the following year.
Humanitou moved into podcast format, launching in March 2020.

“Humanitou podcasts are bringing people together one conversation at a time. I don’t know you do it, but almost every guest is someone that I could see myself being friends with in real life. The stories that Humanitou’s guests share touch me in deep, personal ways. There are always multiple moments in each episode when I find myself saying ‘Wow! That’s totally what I believe!’ or ‘I can completely relate to that!’ or ‘I’ve had those exact feelings and experiences.’ The guests on the Humanitou podcast make me feel like I’m not the only one in the world who thinks a certain thing or feels a certain way. This program makes me feel close to people that I don’t know. Every time I listen to a new episode, I feel the way that I feel when I open a treasured book in which the beloved characters are my dearest friends.” — Vanessa Little, via email

THE QUESTION FOR YOU
“How do you live humanness and creativity in your life?”
That’s the core question Adam asks listeners to consider for themselves at the end of each conversational episode of Humanitou, in which they’ve just listened to a guest on the show vulnerably share their stories of humanness and creativity for 60 to 90 minutes.
So … how do you?
