Iconoclasts is a Sundance Channel show with the tagline "Change the way you see celebrity". In this original series, leading innovators and creative visionaries come together to discuss their passions and creative processes to provide viewers with an inside glimpse into the inspiration and motivation that made these iconoclasts who they are today
This show pairs two leading creative innovators from different fields including film, literature, architecture, food, music, and business. One "Iconoclast" acts as a guide into the world of the other to explore their creative process, their inspirations and their passions. Unlike an ordinary interview program, "Iconoclasts" captures the essence of these headline-makers through the eyes of the creative visionaries who respect and admire them the most. Set outside of a studio at a location meaningful to one or both of the subjects, each pair provides viewers with an inside glimpse into the passion, inspiration, and motivation that made these iconoclasts who they are today and offer insight into the real people behind the public personae
This is a great show!! Check out some clips from past seasons

KINDNESS OF STRANGERS PREVIEW
John Legend has included this song on the set of his "Show Me" tour.
It is one of my favorite Beatle’s songs.
5 time Grammy award winner, Legend started the "Show Me Campaign" after being motivated and inspired by Jeffrey Sachs‘ book "The End of Poverty". John Legend had already written a beautiful song called "Show Me" which charts a conversation with God about the State of the world and the individual’s place in it. These simple things form the founding principles for the "Show Me Campaign" which was launched as a platform to contribute to the betterment of the world.
The mission of the "Show Me Campaign" is to fight economic and spiritual poverty through fostering sustainable development (personal, social, educational, economic) at the individual, family and small community levels. The Show Me Campaign is a grassroot movement that engages all of its participants as agents of transformative change from the bottom up.
The Show Me Campaign operates from a basic principle of thoughtful action versus mere words and calls on all of us to commit to making a difference in this world. We see power of individuals working in concert toward tangible ends and believe that we all have responsibilities to address the issues that imperil our collective human future.
