Fuck Finding Your Passion

This podcast originally aired in January 2021. 2021 has arrived with the ‘new year, new me’ mantra everywhere. Millions of souls are inspired with resolutions and  following advice like ‘find your passion.’ Unfortunately, it’s kind of shitty advice. In short, telling people to find their passion could suggest that passion is within you, just waiting to be revealed. It. Is. Not. Telling people to follow their passion suggests that passion will do the lion’s share of the work for you. It. Will. Not. We look at the effects of both fixed and growth mindsets and their impact on learning, curiosity,

Momma-T in the House (my mom is awesome)

This podcast was such a special experience and one I will forever remember. The first ever guest has been a huge influence in my life and one of the most loving souls one will ever meet. All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my mom aka Momma-T. She is a beautiful woman, loving mother, great friend, instinctive philosopher, and one of the coolest people I’ve ever met. We talk education, growing up in 60’s, raising children and grandchildren and a few other fun topics. The episode is rough around the edges, has a few errors,

da Vinci | that Curious Bastard

Did you know Leonardo was an illegitimate child born during what scholars have called a ‘Golden Age’ for Bastards? How did he fuel his curiosity? This was a man who believed ‘learning never exhausts the mind.’ That is to say he was always learning. His early years were spent living on his father’s family estate in Vinci. During this period of his life, he was also influenced by his uncle, who had a love of nature and had a hand in rearing him during his formative years. He had a very short formal schooling, he was largely an autodidact. He

Color Your Self Calm

Recently, without thinking twice, I picked up a crayon and began to color my self calm with my kids. It was only after a couple of minutes that I came to a few realizations: 1) This is therapeutic and calming. This moment of zen was short lived, because I also realized; 2) I don’t even have kids and I was coloring by myself. But it did get the curious and creative hamsters on their respective wheels and here we are. It’s May. And according to NAMI, the National Alliance to Mental Illness, it’s Mental Health Awareness Month. During this show
