    Revealing Plane Ride with President-Elect Biden

    Up next on Way of the Renaissance Man, A revealing plane ride with the President-elect.
    What’s it like to take a cross-country plane ride while sitting next to the now President-elect, Joe Biden?
    Interestingly, what Jim found out about the man while doing just that is sure to make you pause, and make you laugh.
    In this special audio essay, Jim reads his 2008 article, “We All Scream for Ice Cream, A Joe Biden Tale”, a piece he wrote that details his impressions of then Senator Biden. Jim also adds a new introduction to the essay to put it in the proper, current context.
    If you want to find out more about one of our next president’s rather peculiar habits, then this special audio essay is for you.
    And now, here’s Jim’s reading of, “We All Scream for Ice Cream, A Joe Biden Tale.”

    Wisdom Wears Chanel

    Wisdom Wears Chanel

    Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods
     
    Today's insight was inspired by French fashion designer and businesswoman Coco Chanel  
    “How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”
    –Coco Chanel
     
    The classic fashion icon became world renowned for designing unique, elegant and sophisticated women’s clothing. But her immense talent and success didn’t really take off until she decided, as she puts it, to “be someone.” I think we all can learn a lesson from Coco, because before we can be great, we must first decide to be someone.

    Smoking Cigars With Saddam Hussein

    Smoking Cigars With Saddam Hussein

    Up next on Way of the Renaissance Man, smoking cigars with Saddam Hussein.  
     
    What’s it like to be responsible for guarding the highest-profile prisoner of the Iraq War? That’s a fascinating question, and the answer is equally fascinating, equally complex, and equally spellbinding.
     
    In this episode, Jim speaks with Kelly Hillyer, the U.S. Army officer in charge of Saddam Hussein’s security detail. And while you might initially think guarding a tyrant would be an austere detail what you’ll discover is that the job was much more nuanced, and much more human than you can imagine.
     
    From smoking cigars together, to reading poetry, the two men developed a relationship that is guaranteed to surprise you. Very few men have the opportunity to do something as unique and with as much historical significance as Kelly Hillyer.
     
    And in this episode, you’ll find out just how this exemplary soldier handled the difficult duty,with class, skill, and with true American virtue.
    And now, here’s Jim’s conversation with Kelly Hillyer.

    On Casting Your Shadow

    On Casting Your Shadow

    On Casting Your Shadow  
    Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods
    Today's insight was inspired by English writer, literary critic, and librettist   E.M. Forster
     
    “We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand.”
    — E. M. Forster
    The great novelist knew the importance of one life, as we all make a difference, and we all cast a shadow over the people and circumstances in our lives. Keep this thought in mind the next time you face an important decision. Remember, your shadow matters to the world.

    If you ever have to confront an assailant in a life or death physical struggle, what do you need to know to survive?
     
    In this episode, Jim speaks with expert combatives instructor Troy Coe, founder of Reality Defense Training, an Arizona-based self-defense academy that emphasizes what’s called a survival-based approach to martial arts.
     
    In this fascinating discussion, Jim and Troy talk about the nature of

    The Wisdom of Wallace

    The Wisdom of Wallace

    Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods
     
    This insight was inspired by Scottish knight and one of the main leaders during the First War of Scottish Independence, Sir William Wallace.
     
    “There’s a difference between us. You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it.”
     
    –William Wallace
     
    The great Scottish freedom fighter knew the proper role of political leadership in society, and he fought to make that happen during his pugnacious lifetime. I want you to remember his words when you go to the polls on Nov. 3.
