We're starting something new. Let's see where it goes.

The Sound of Awesome - Episode 115 - What's Up With Small Talk?

I talk a bit about small talk and how it is hard for some people to start chatting with people they don't know. I am not one who is very good with small talk but I try my best. I do know many people who have no idea how to begin, end, start, stop, etc. They are completely lost. They prefer (much like myself) to skip over the small stuff and treat people as if they are kind of awesome right away.

The Sound of Awesome - Episode 114 - Hard Connections

I talk a bit about friends and being vulnerable and how it is those two properties of people in the world are what makes life and friends worth having and nurturing. Life can be hard and when we feel like we must carry all burdens on our shoulders without having anyone to help us out... that sucks.

The Sound of Awesome - Episode 113 - Research Into My Brain

I've been thinking lately about how I should do a podcast or some sort of creative sharing that includes reporting on things I learn... but not make it as boring as it sounds. I have often tried to start these sorts of projects but my schedule doesn't allow for it and some of the things I talk about daily worm their way into my personal projects. This is an attempt to not let that happen.

The ShaneCast - Episode 65 - When You Get Another Piece of Someone

I received a piece of someone the other day and it reminded me of just how important that is. I can't say enough about the act of creating a letter and sending it to someone else. The mere effort to make a physical object and sharing it with another human being makes such connections much more important.
