Theirs is a marriage of two like minds. Ben and Jeannine share a lifelong passion for knowledge—a desire to pursue their intellectual curiosity, wherever it might lead them. Languages, history, culture… anything can spark the flame of interest, the excitement about learning something new. “That’s kind of how I’ve lived my life, just following the breadcrumbs of knowledge. It’s brought me great joy,” says Jeannine.
Knowledge Network is a source for learning that they both depend on, using their computer to access the programming whenever they like. “The quality is so high that I don’t have to spend a couple hours looking for something good, which is what I find on other streaming platforms,” says Ben. “If you find media sources that leave you with better questions, broader questions, deeper questions on the matters that mean a lot to you, I think that’s where you want to go.”
Deciding to become Knowledge Partners took little thought for the Victoria couple, who share another passion—supporting things they believe in. Beyond their enjoyment of the programming, they value the sense of belonging to a shared community. “Knowledge allows us to be part of kind of a virtual commons,” says Ben. “We know that we’re taking part in something that other people are also watching and engaging with and learning from.”
“It’s just been such a gift this past decade,” says Jeannine, “having Knowledge in our lives.”
