The podcast launched in October 2016.
Across my open campus of downtown St. Paul, MN, I learned to talk to strangers. I sought conversations on Metro Transit, in local businesses and on the street. I learned to ask teachers and mentors for advice when in need. I began to develop the muscle of conversation.
Following graduation from the Theatre Department at Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists in 2015, I began traveling nationally and internationally. Wherever I went, wonderful people crossed my path, sharing their lessons and stories.
For a year at that point, I had been a daily podcast listener. My favorites included The Tim Ferriss Show (teaching the importance of providing immediate, practical material), Waking Up with Sam Harris (exemplifying the necessity for intellectually honest discourse), Very Bad Wizards (demonstrating the value of intertwining humor with information), Bulletproof Radio (providing protocols to expand my capacity of well being) and The Duncan Trussell Family Hour (illustrating the wonder of imaginative monologue).
I attended the 4th Annual Bulletproof Conference in Pasadena, California during September 2016. It landed me in the midst of high-profile, experienced professionals. I wanted to share the experiences and insights that I gained during that time with others. The idea for a podcast flourished, and John Lee Dumas' Free Podcast Course provided specific steps to begin.
This podcast is my method of self-education, while simultaneously, an ongoing test of it. I seek strategies, recommendations and inspiration from guests who appear here. The evolution of my work is a reflection of their influence on me and my application of their lessons.
Together, we learn. Together, we create a new reality.
