Exploring Kodawari

We are two classical musicians exploring the many manifestations of kodawari in the world.

Kodawari is a beautiful concept word from Japanese. Although difficult to translate succinctly, kodawari essentially means pursuing perfection in a craft. It is the pursuit of an ideal even though you realize you can’t arrive there.

Kodawari is what drives musicians to spend countless hours in the practice room. It motivates a chef to make the perfect meal, a writer to suffer over their words, and a barista to craft the perfect drink.

But it is also an approach to life. We want to read books, interview people, discuss topics, and discover amazing content that will keep our kodawari fire burning.

It is our excuse to continue growing as musicians and as people, and we hope that you'll join us!

This show is a philosophical podcast about the chase for (unachievable) perfection - the opposite of cutting corners, to quote the host. The two hosts usually complete interviews with people from a range of backgrounds. It’s quite an intellectual show (though Harry Potter pops up too). ? The show starts with a very distinguishable theme - you get the sense that the hosts have a classical music background. The show then opens up in to an in depth conversation around the topic of the episode. Overall I can’t think of another show quite like this. Fine work. If you’re looking for something different, give it a try.
What an amazing, fascinating, and original concept! This show is entertaining and informative with hosts who are fantastic performers. I've been fascinated by Carl Jung's work, so I love hearing them talk about it in action. It's definitely worth hitting that 'subscribe' button!
