TT30: Tackling Mindfulness

On Today’s episode, Isaac and I discuss an extremely popular topic, mindfulness. People all over the world are experimenting with journaling, meditation, and methods to enact mindfulness in their own lives. Isaac and I break into what mindfulness is, where things are not well supported, and where there is supporting evidence behind it. We touch on the concept of “flow” and how mindfulness blends with reaching an optimal state of performance. Finally, we discuss how meditation is really filling a gap created from moving away from practices that have existed for thousands of years.

TT29: Moral Slavery and Squid Game

On Today’s episode of the podcast Isaac and I discuss the TV show most likely to ruin Halloween. We’re talking Squid Game mostly because of the real lessons it has the ability to highlight for all of us. This is a show that has had an impact on the way that I have been thinking about life a lot lately. Isaac and I draw out the themes from the show like debt inducing us into slavery, equal playing fields not resulting in equal outcomes, and the importance of having a moral compass. Check out another awesome episode.

TT 28: Breaking Ranks

On Today’s episode of the podcast Isaac and I discuss the concept of breaking ranks through the lens of Lt. Col Stuart Scheller. Lt. Col Scheller is well known for his video that went viral the same day as the death of 13 service members in a suicide attack in Hamid Karzai airport in Afghanistan. Lt. Col Scheller called for accountability of leadership and slowly went down a path that landed him in the Brig. Isaac and I discuss this concept and need to break ranks when the organization has failed to do what is expected and when to stay in line and change the organization from the outside or within. Tune in to hear our take on Lt.Col Scheller’s controversial action.

Tune in for an interesting discussion on why the American People need to hold sacred certain ideals or be doomed to suffer from their downfall.
