Release date: Wednesday 8/14/19

To say the past decade has been a difficult one for Joel Hawbaker would be a huge understatement. Divorce, bankruptcy and foreclosure are all challenging enough without the grief of also losing a parent.
We talk openly about how he overcame those obstacles and his depression with determination, therapy and faith.

We also talk about his current work as a professional speaker and coach, helping blended families learn to live more cooperatively and positively with each other.

He is also the best-selling author of the book 'Inverted Leadership: Lead Others Better By Forgetting About Yourself' Which you can get in ebook or paperback here:

RELEASE DATE 8/9/19

I have an in depth conversation with DJ DISTANT LOVER about music, travel and the dichotomy of beauty and danger in modern day Detroit. We also get into self determination, self awareness and building a set of coping mechanisms that will serve you. It's a pretty deep conversation about learning to manage your mental health and owning those aspects of yourself in a culture that is still struggling to have a conversation about mental health.

This week on the show I talk to the incredibly funny author, blogger and podcaster Sean Paul Mahoney about depression, anxiety, addiction and recovery. We also talk about his book "Now That You've Stopped Dying" and how the reality of recovery and addiction is not like it is in the movies.

Peter Higgins is a pretty emotionally evolved dude, which may be due to the fact that he was raised by a therapist in a house that wasn't afraid to talk about mental health. We talk about that, the challenges of balancing personal goals with parental responsibility and his new music with the band WIFF.

FRIDAY 7/19/19

Where do you even begin with someone as prolific as Greg Behrendt? The answer for me was to pick a spot and just let it unfold. The resulting conversation is as winding and varied as his career. We talk about our experiences with being bipolar, learning from disappointments and what you can learn about yourself from success. Of course we also touch on comedy, music and the omnipresent impact of his best seller "He's just not that into you".

FRIDAY!

Musician Chris Mercer of the band Sliver returns for a fiery conversation about the growing lack of empathy from Denverites who seem to prioritize magic mushrooms over the lives of the homeless. We talk about the very personal stakes he has in bringing awareness to youth homelessness in particular, the mental illness factors involved and the real dangers of toxic masculinity.

This week I talk with Model Vanessa Heart about surviving an interesting life. I've said before that playing it too safe won’t get you many stories and there are few better examples than this woman’s incredible tale of overcoming abuse, assault, attempted suicide and existential crisis to emerge out the other side an intact and intelligent, compassionate human. WHEW! We talk about all of that and MORE.

This is a deep one, so get ready.
