Out of an 1980’s San Francisco concept, today’s Burning Man abides by ten “radical” guiding principles. Many “burners” as they call themselves, return year after year to build up and burn down this make shift cultural phenomenon. We hope you enjoy the wonder through OhThePeopleYouMeet‘s founder, Michaela Guzy’s eyes as she experiences her first Burning Man.

It’s a ride of a lifetime to encounter first hand accounts from veteran burners, corporate executives and even a high school student. Witness beautiful human connection, behold the mecca of larger than life art, and experience the transformation that happens when 70,000 individuals come together for a week on the digitally disconnected playa.

Join Michaela Guzy, on a new kind of journey–one that takes us across the desert plains of Nevada into a makeshift community that stands for one week alone: Burning Man. Immerse yourself in wonder with this episode.
