Sinopsis

Greater than is a storytelling platform. We tell stories about people and organizations that overcome, that keep on despite the desolation they've seen or been through. And we ask ourselves, how can we use these stories to tackle systems of injustice, inequality, racism, poverty, and shift narratives?Hosted by Dhanya Addanki and Jenn Junod, this show curates spaces for uncomfortable but necessary conversations about vulnerable issues. It's designed for an audience who isn't afraid to be frustrated at the state of our world because they understand hope prevails.
