Is there a way that you can use comedy to conenct with your co-workers better? Besides using your standard dad jokes? (please stop doing those)
This week, Dan speaks with comedian Chris Tabish, the co-founder of Venture West Consulting and the author of the new book "Comediology: Be More Effective and Fulfilled in Business With Comedy." Chris was like many people, stuck in a job that was taking a toll not only on himself but on his family. He was able to use stand-up comedy as a way to not only find himself personally, but find himself in business. It enabled him to break free of living outside of his heart and soul and find his voice, be present, and stop doing things for reasons other than experiencing joy and fulfillment.
Things discussed in this episode include...
- Why owning who you are is the ultimate way to bring true happiness in your life.
- The power of the "F It!" point and what you should take action when you feel you're ready.
- How asking yourself "WHY" can give you clarity in your current situation and where you want your life to go.
- Why making a career change may not be the right move and how to know it.
- How building the right environment around you can change yourself and your situation.
- Why the process of finding yourself can be just as powerful and fun as getting to where you want to be.
- How the fear of failure isn't necessarily what you think it is.
- Why you should recognize your success and give yourself more credit for what you've accomplished.
- How the fundamentals of comedy can actually be a way for you to build better connections with your co-workers.

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
