About Kismet

The Kismet podcast is the brainchild of Brooke Lamb and Lindsey Sampson, born amidst quiet conversation in one of Nashville’s most beloved coffee shops. Brooke had been envisioning a podcast for years, but knew it would take the right time, the right place, and most of all, the right co-host. Lindsey’s creative energy and theological wisdom met with Brooke’s psychological expertise and spiritual passion, and the dream of Kismet emerged.

Kismet exists for the purpose of highlighting the abundance of extraordinary stories hidden in the ordinary. When humans listen to one another’s experiences of suffering, healing, and transformation, life is brought forth within the listener. Everyone has moments like these, but they are very rarely witnessed by others at all, much less in great focus. Humanity appears to be more divided than ever, but the universal nature of Kismet moments demonstrates that we are all more alike in our internal realities than the surface may show.

The hope of the Kismet team is that you notice more fully the presence of Love in your own life as you receive the stories of others, and move forward into sharing your own moments with your community.
