The intensifying rhythm of an anticipating heart is finally quieted by the sound of the first note meeting your anxious ears. It is only the first note, but it sounds off with the authority of a starting gun initiating the great race of life.
As the first note reverberates down your spine in a familiar rhythm of its own, we go.
and we follow, and we race, and we time… We try to survive, we can even thrive, but eventually, we will lose…
…and THAT is just musical chairs!
Games have a profound impact on our youth… Does that competitive spirit just… go away with age?
Maybe the game changes, but life is a game… and it can be won!
From throwback childhood games to existential references and mathematical counter-points… Elon Musk, Conway’s Game of Life, Monopoly, Golf, Stan and Stitch all get in on this debate!
THAT day, unfolding so seamlessly and flawlessly hour by hour that your smart phone can only project “magic” in the forecast?
THAT day, that ‘trending toward perfect’ one, where the sequential events tend to naturally build momentum into a domino fall of happiness. A pattern of statistically significant goodness, raising expectations and a smile.
How about THIS DAY? Deceitfully mirroring the same image of “THAT day”, yet fated to be the ‘Bizarro’ of Cinderella stories.
Have you ever had a day of good things leading up to a dinner of FREEOld Fashions and Premium Steak at a fine New York Establishment — hosted by your best friend………. which ended with plantar fasciitis and shin splints?
No News is Good News… …but No New York Travel is even better!!
On this episode you will hear one of the great New York day trips turn into a nightmare; a nightmare turn into awkward work colleague travel; and awkward work colleague travel turn into heroism and lasting lower-limb problems.
You’ll also learn how to flag down a cab as a New York visitor trying to catch a night flight, and why we should have a healthy distrust of the News and Uber.
Tonight, at 11:00p!
‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!
>> “”and i start my run. and I run. and I run. I start sprinting. and I’m spinning in and out of people with my bags, picking my obstacles, choosing escalators with people or static stairs with none. I was like a ninja warrior.”” >> “That’s substantially cooler than me ordering “Mean Girls” on demand.” >> “cortisol? is that what makes me horny?”“
ALL SHIPS are given sail by means of an unseen sea of seemingly majestic ebbs and flows.
It forms the bonds that pull; it forged from poles that bind.
From the moment Mother Yin and Father Yang first lovingly united in their division, Polarity was born… and with it, a means to feel the invisible connectivity and infinite possibility between us all: Magnetism!

High-five for mediocrity! Each confident clasp we reward ourselves with today hauntingly echoes the dreams and memories of our tomorrows. Yet, for now, we triumphantly march together in the lemming line.

In this episode, discover the single most important attribute you need to break the lemming line, be yourself, and thusly, the best version of you that you can possibly be!
‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!
>> “is a lemming a real thing, like an animal?” >> “i also love that you’re the albert einstein of the toilet seat!” >> “i know women that skip entire days, or so they say.” — “just women? like it’s such a dirty secret that we sometimes pooh.” >> “i’d rather use a leaf from the backyard.” >> “i come with my homeruns, then miss a game or two.”

Behind all of your priorities, decisions, and daily ‘whatevers’, there is one question. A single, often unnerving, unknown — which dictates your daily grind and puppeteers a million other doubts and anxieties.
Amidst life’s innumerous uncertainties is a sole question… the soul question.
If you’re ready, then join Stan and Stitch as they play the part of philosophical Blues Brothers and cover the soul, man!

Now, replay that imagery as the Jaws theme is overlaid on top of it!
