The Tenderness Revolution

Conversations about the pivotal moments of tenderness that help shape our lives

A series of conversations between journalist Yvonne Gavan and a range of guests about the moments of tenderness that shape our lives. Because these experiences tell us about what it means to be human and invite us into a new way of experiencing the world and each other. 

About Us


The Tenderness Revolution

The Tenderness Revolution is a podcast and a movement that's on a mission to change the way we think about ourselves, each other and the world around us. One conversation at a time. 

Because we all have a tender heart at our core that longs to be present in the world, yet gets covered over with the beliefs and difficult experiences that we have throughout our lives. And the three C's: compassion, curiosity and courage, help show us the way back to tenderness.

British journalist, Yvonne Gavan, is the creator and host of The Tenderness Revolution.


American journalist, Aisha Chowdhry, is a producer on the show.
