About

We’re Only Human is a website and podcast that explores stories of ordinary people welcoming change into their life..

I interview people from all walks of life and dig into their rollercoaster journeys to learn from their growth, awakening, and the key moments along the way.

We’re not perfect. We’re not alone. We’re only human.

Tim Jahn

Hi! I’m Tim. I’m a father, son, brother, friend, and storyteller.

In 2019, I experienced what insurance companies call a qualifying life event: divorce.

Since then, I’ve accidentally embarked on a journey to more fully understand who I am, how I feel, and redefine who I want to be.

I created We’re Only Human to surface others who decided to live intentionally and to remind you and I both that we’re not alone in our journeys. Countless times, I’ve found invaluable strength in the stories of others who have traveled down a path similar to mine.

A storyteller at heart with an innate curiosity and empathy for understanding others, I interview people from all walks of life and dig into their rollercoaster journeys to learn from their growth, awakening, and the key moments along the way.

Prior to starting We’re Only Human, I interviewed over 200 creative entrepreneurs from around the world to learn how they overcame obstacles and failures on their journey to success. I’ve also produced and hosted dozens of storytelling events for people from all walks of life to share their stories of struggle, growth, and awakening.

People say nice things about the podcast:

“This podcast is real. Tim helps people feel comfortable being vulnerable and sharing real stories and emotions. I find myself glued to each episode.”

“It feels very warm and inviting in a situation that can be really vulnerable for people. I applaud you for doing this and surfacing it and helping people feel comfortable in those moments where they are probably the most vulnerable. I think that’s a really hard thing to create and you’ve done it well.”

“You’re a masterful interviewer and you made a very difficult topic a wonderful conversation. I hope others enjoy this half as much as I did.”

“I am absolutely blown away by Tim’s talent, dedication and empathy as an interviewer & host. I’m a former journalist and find him to be the most talented interviewer I’ve ever met. He has a unique ability to make his guests comfortable sharing their stories while leading them through some of the most intimate or difficult topics. And the conversation flows so organically, thanks to his empathy, humor, vulnerability and meticulous research of each guest.”

“This was one of my favorite interviews to date, Tim! Thanks for the opportunity to share a part of my story that most people don’t ask about.”

“Thank you for providing a different perspective on things that hadn’t even crossed my mind. This was a great conversation.”

“You’re a very awesome interviewer. This is a great show!

“I appreciate the way that you are connecting with people who are willing to get vulnerable and to share. Please keep doing this because you’ve got someone who is really enjoying the conversations you’re having and your approach to people. It’s really spectacular.”

So inspired by your work on this, Tim. Keep it coming.”
