# About Freedom Matters Podcast
The Freedom Matters podcast (opens new window) explores the intersection of technology, productivity, creativity and society.
Our collaborators are the leading productivity and digital wellness voices of our time. They share their powerful stories and guidance on how to nurture productivity and reclaim control over technology.
This is not another ‘productivity’ podcast which puts more pressure on listeners to obtain unrealistic life goals. Our stories are real, and the advice is pragmatic, authentic, and designed to support a healthier, happier and more productive life.
