Mark - Relationships, love, and communication

Hey guys, today I spoke with Mark. Mark cares about love, relationships, and acting. I met Mark in the same acting class as a few other guests, and you’ll hear a similar appreciation of the experience as you did from them. Mark's spent a lot of time reflecting on his experiences with relationships, and that topic makes up a big portion of our show. We also take a deeper dive into what love means for different people and different communication styles. Hope you enjoy the chat with Mark!

Steve - Living Life to the Fullest

Today’s guest is Steve, and what matters to him is living life. Specifically, Steve looks for a memorable moment from each day, one day at a time. Because of this, he’s one of the first people who comes to mind when I think of the word "successful". After getting to know him over the past few months, I can honestly say he lives with purpose and has a sincere grasp on what fulfillment means to himself. We discuss finding adventure every day, why he’s a hopeful romantic, lost hospitality...

WMPodcast: Dylan - Purpose, acting, and knowing yourself

On the show today is Dylan. What matters to him is finding purpose and living it. He was one of the most eager guests to be on the show and he did not disappoint! Dylan was a blast to speak with—in large part because he’s obviously spent time thinking about these topics before. We cover acting, gratitude, displaying emotions, and much more in this chat—and if I had to predict which guest so far would make a second appearance on the show, it might be this guy. So let’s get to it—please...

Lamis - head, heart, and fighting for Lebanon

Hey guys, today I’m speaking with a woman named Lamis. What matters to her is the well-being of people in her home country, Lebanon. This is a heavy interview, but as you’ll hear Lamis is absolutely exceptional, and if anyone has “seen it all”, she has. As a young child, she enjoyed relative comfort, but serious family health issues and conflict in her homeland left her with nothing but the will to pick herself up and a maturity level far beyond her years. Our interview is enlightening, at...
