Welcome to 20 Minutes in Lockdown! A video podcast devoted to learning fascinating lessons from interesting humans all around the world, all in 20 minutes or less!

20 Minutes in Lockdown was born in early April of 2020, when we were in fact, in lockdown, and couldn’t do much of anything. Realizing that more than ever, people could benefit from learning from people outside of their comfort zone – people with interesting stories to tell, people with good advice, people with useful ideas that could help improve lives, we started hosting short Facebook video interviews, and we grew from there. Having hosted another 20 minute podcast (you can find that here fasterthannormal.com) in the past, we know that 20 minutes is the magic number. Not too long to be annoying, but long enough to provide value.

You can find all of the videos on Facebook or YouTube.

Do you have an interesting story that you think should be featured, or know anyone you believe should be a guest? Reach out!
