You may know him as @daringtodad on instagram... we've got men's coach, father coach, Ryan Walton on the show today.

We go deep down the rabbit hole on fatherhood. What Ryan was faced with when he became a parent. And how though he "went into the ring ready", he was greeted by a punch in the face.

How parenting forces us to face the parts of ourselves that maybe we don't like so much and some of the stories th...

This week we've got men’s embodiment coach, group facilitator, and evolutionary guide, Mr. Jason Lange on the show.

We kick things off talking about the "worst date of Jason's life". And what he learned from it. (Listen to the end to hear my own "worst date story").

But this is all about the power of finding presence and stillness as men in relationship (A...

Today we've got The Fear Guy, Ben Harris on the show!

He coaches, mentors and creates content that is all about helping people "free themselves" from the fear in their lives.

This one starts out all about fear and then gets into a deep discussion of masculinity and what it means to be a man. So good.

We get into how some of the fear that we hold on a daily basis is NOT even our own fear (others perhaps projected this fear ...

Boxing Day Special!!

Perhaps I am taking the punny humour a step too far, but naturally had to wait two months to release the episode with Boxing Coach (and just fantastic dude), Cleveland Hughes on Boxing Day.

Without a doubt one of the toughest dudes we've had on the show. He started Healing Mitts Boxing Gym - which is unique in that it's intention is NOT to produce the next Iron Mike Tyson.

INSTEAD, it's intention is to...

Today we've got former collegiate baseball player turned sport scientist turned entrepreneur, Mr. Dallen Reber on the show!

This one is all about the power of SELF-AWARENESS.

One of the ways that self-awareness is built is through the practice of journaling. Dallen takes us through how journaling is THE thing that led him to leave a job that others would perceive as "super cool" to follow what he REALLY wanted in life. Th...

Today on the show we've got former NBA Scout for the Cleveland Cavaliers and former College Basketball Coach, Mr. Steve Done (A.K.A. Coach Done).

Of course we talk a little (ok like a significant amount) of ball. But we go deeper than just talking basketball.

This one gets into CHARACTER. And what character means. And how Coach Done identified this trait in young up and coming players as a scout.

We talk the importance of AWARENES...

Our guest today has written a book, is a health coach and is in relentless pursuit of "living damn well".

Jorge Roman joins us and we get into first, what it means to "live damn well". How it is SO important for each of us to ask ourselves this question. In asking what optimal health really means to us. WHY do we work out every day, why do we eat what we eat? What is the point of it all for US.

We go down SO many rabb...

Our guest today is someone who I would call a “spiritual badass”. We’ve got Chess Edwards on the show. Who spent 20 years as an adventure travel guide and then took a huge career pivot becoming a different kind of guide – a spiritual guide/meditation teacher. 

We get into how in his career as an adventure guide, he was exploring the most amazing places on earth, all in an attempt to avoid turning inward and exploring himself. Living...

Today we’ve got the founder of nutrition company, Alaya Naturals (awesome clean, organic superfood supplements) on the show. And as you will surely realize when listening, just an amazing woman.

But today we're not talking nutrition. We're talking finding your authentic voice. Something Shauna was forced to do when writing a memoir of her life (and literally laying it all on the table).

We dig into how many of us "edit o...

As Taylor Swift says, "Two is Better Than One" and so today we have TWO guests on the show - Nicole Girouard & Laura Moon. Of Bare Slate and hosts of the awesome "Ask More, Get More Show".

This one is all about asking yourself two (very important) questions.

1) Who am I?
2) What do I want?

And how once we dig into the answers to these questions (which takes a whole lot of time), we can no longer be offended. Becaus...

After experiencing a tragedy in his life, Mike made the decision to change the lives of men.

We talk creating spa...

Love is in the air! We've got Love Coach, Shaun Galanos on the show talking all about why when it comes to relationships, slower is better.

Great empires (and relationships) aren't built overnight. We dig into where this rush to get into relationships stems from (hint: it is an attempt to avoid the existential loneliness of being human).

He tells us how we can gauge if a relationship is moving too fast. What WE can do if we a...

We've got acclaimed author, Robin Clare on the show and her central belief is that all "addictions" (i.e. alcohol, food etc.) are REALLY just addictions to suffering.

And that while pain is inevitable in life, suffering is a choice. And many of us continually choose it.
