Hello Friends! Your life is a book. How good is your book going to be when your story ends? Let's face it. Life isn't fair. You want to get to the top of what you do? To get to the top, you have to learn from others... otherwise you're going to get learned from. Listen now to the guest talks to gain a broader scope on other professions and perspectives OR to how the books I read can be applied directly into your life. As an Anthropology & Religion major with an expedition to “dig-up” stories for you (Pun intended), I'm your host Shiva Dhanasekar and let's talk. https://linktr.ee/shivadhana

    9. Rapping, Radiator Springs, and DMT ft. Rodney Alan

    AJ, also known by his artist name Rodney Alan, is an old friend of mine who has jumpstarted and accelerated his music career. He discusses his struggles as a rapper and artist and how he has reached over 65,000 streams in 2 months. He shares how he started and how you can start too! We then dive into the topics of DMT and drugs on the brain and transition lastly into multiple dimensions and how that, along with death, gives life its meaning. If you want a sneak peak of one of his songs, wait until the end where I replaced my normal outro with a segment from his music! Want to hear more of him or see more of what I'm up to?
