Baha’i Blogcast with Rainn Wilson – Episode 71: Todd Steinberg

Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson.

In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick.

In this episode, I’m joined by my dear friend Todd Steinberg, who helped out in the early days of SoulPancake and runs a teddy bear company – yep that’s right – teddy bears! Todd shares how he found the Baha’i Faith and how grateful he is for finding it. We talk about how systems are as important as the people within them; the importance of being in tune with our hearts and the importance of service. He tells us a little about his work with prisoners, and shares a couple of stories about Abdu’l-Baha. I hope you enjoy the conversation!
