    Episode 71: Eric White - How To Build A Constructive Life Through Dialogue, Podcasting, Pursuing and Living

    Eric White is the creator and host of theEWpodcast. He doesn't podcast just to be a "sage on the stage" but to have valuable conversations with people who interest him and can bring value to a greater audience.
    He and I have that in common.
    Eric and I talk about his backstory-- including a bout of depression and recovery from it-- then discuss what it means to find purpose and meaning in life. Finally, we have a meta conversation about podcasting: why we do it, why it brings us value, and how having interesting (even difficult) discussions a.) makes us better people; b.) empowers people in our circles of influence.
    Enjoy this conversation with my friend and yours, Mr. Eric White

    Episode 70: How To Honor Children -- Jeanine Fitzgerald

    Episode 70: How To Honor Children -- Jeanine Fitzgerald

    Honoring children-- that's Jeanine Fitzgerald's MO. In this interview, she explains what it takes to be a positive influence in the life of each child-- each person -- that she interacts with.
    Jeanine's child-first philosophy is evident in all of her work: Her book, "The Dance of Interaction"; her frequent keynote speeches (which she delivers internationally); her work as an educational and family consultant; and in her career as a teacher, working with children in the Fitzgerald Community School, the school that she founded in Massachusetts.
    Today, she and Zach discuss the differences between standard schooling and education. Per Jeanine, the latter is something that happens by way of honoring children and everything they bring to the table: their strengths, their passions, and their natural sense of curiosity.
    In other words, Jeanine Fitzgerald doesn't teach kids how to be different people; she assists them as they grow into the best versions of their authentic selves.

    BONUS Episode | Eric White: Trauma, Depression, Purpose, Meaning, and "theEWPodcast"

    BONUS Episode | Eric White: Trauma, Depression, Purpose, Meaning, and "theEWPodcast"

    Today I spoke with my friend and fellow podcaster, Eric White. 
    Eric is a deep thinker and a compassionate human-- skills he shares with the world via his podcast, "theEWpodcast". 
    We talked about Eric's past traumas and how he uses those experiences and memories to build a meaningful life now and into the future. 
    We also talked about his basis for podcasting in the first place (which he does mostly to be helpful to others). 
    Lastly, we had a meta conversation about why hosting podcasts-- engaging critical thinkers in good-faith conversations-- is such a useful way of sharing one's experiences and skills as well as contextualizing oneself in the world. 
    We had this conversation remotely, of course, but you could easily imagine us on a couch in a living room with adult beverages . . . . that was the casual nature of this conversation. 
    I hope you'll enjoy your early access to this first of two interviews with Eric White.
