I created this podcast because i needed to find a way to stay in touch with my friends, social media acquaintances, and life-coaching clients while I built a life for myself in Moscow, Russia. Yes, after 30 years in North America, I relocated back to the place that birthed me. The concept here is simple: send in a three-minute Voice Note with anything on your mind. A question. A thought. A song. A message. An observation. A complaint. Anything. It doesn’t even have to be three minutes. It can be a total of 10 seconds. There are no rules except that you relinquish control to your Voice Note once it’s been sent. After which, I dive into the depths of myself to come up with an adequate answer to whatever it is that you’ve said. Perhaps, this will evolve into a dialogue in which I’ll send back a question your way through my answer. Perhaps, i’ll ask you to never Voice Note me again (kidding). The point is to challenge ourselves to be daring enough to record, bold enough to send something + to let it go, + patient enough to see where it ends up in the process of creation. Like you, each episode will vary. There are no guarantees except for the guarantee that you’ve put something out there.

    The Fear of Being / From Jeff Carpenter

    The Fear of Being / From Jeff Carpenter

    This is Jeff. Jeff found me via a friend. A friend I had met nearly ten years earlier…

    While I was a young kid getting started in a new career. Living in Pittsburgh, working for the Pittsburgh Penguins, a Sam discovered a deep-seeded question in me: what if there’s more, in me, and in the world around me. Sam introduced me to the beat writers. He introduced me to Nick Drake. He introduced me to philosophical conversations which didn’t need to have some sort of completion. I was 21. And at 31, a good ten years later, I found myself in New York, hosting a workshop on emotional intelligence with a Jeff who was sent to me by Sam.

    Such is life, in that, we never know why we met the people that we meet and how their presence will forever affect us. You see? In some way, the way in which Jeff and I are communicating in this podcast, touching on the question of the fear or being, is parallel to the very questions I was asking Sam. It is, after all, very much all connected. So thank you, Sam. Thank you, Jeff. And thank you Jon Krakauer for asking the very question we discuss in this episode by actually going out and finding your answer.

    How are you? (a simple question) / From Mike O'Day

    How are you? (a simple question) / From Mike O'Day

    This is MIKE. Although in my mind, he’s always mike o’day.

    I met Mike at one of my workshops. My first Men’s Workshop in New York. He ended up attending quite a few, including the last one I did before I left the States for Russia. Really, I don’t know much about him aside from the things I see on social media. He has a show on instagram which airs at 11:59pm titled The 11:59pm show. He has a great sense of humor. He works hard at the work that he does. He seems to me outgoing, and a person who’s always doing something and meeting someone. Most importantly, he’s always been kind. At least from what I’ve seen in the way he’s acted with me and those in workshop.

    Because of this I’m not surprised by his question >. It’s seemingly simple yet unexpectedly loaded with a million different undercurrents. It seems surface but is simultaneously extremely personal. It’s probably the question we ask the most and also the answer we listen to the least. It is QUITE PERPLEXING and iMPORTANT.

    So, Mike, I poke fun at this a little to get our listeners listening (and thinking) but I end up with something quite serious. My answer below.

    What are you doing in Russia? / From Jeff

    What are you doing in Russia? / From Jeff

    This is Jeff. Jeff’s a friend. He’s also a curious person who likes to walk around New York in his free time observing the world around him. When we get together we talk. We talk about the hard stuff, the easy stuff, the sad stuff, and the funny stuff. No topic isn’t a topic. Which means all topics are a topic for us to discuss. I wasn’t sure what to expect from his VN but it ended up being about Russia. Not as straight up as you see it here > but with added descriptions and little pokes at me and poignant observations of society at large. Simply put: basically calling me out on my bullshit and my ability to sidestep any question directly tossed at me.I took this as a challenge (thank you — I needed this) to answer a question many of you have been asking: what are you doing in Russia and what’s it like? My answer below.

    About Jeff. You can/should follow him on instagram @insta_gambler .
    Listen to his mixed tapes “Badlands”.
    Watch this video he filmed of me about absolutely nothing happening, and any other video we’ve ever filmed and/or created on YouTube.
    Finally, the best advice he’s ever given me when stuck in life is to go outside, commence walk, and begin taking photos until you get something. Even if that something ain’t v good, as long as you’ve seen the city with different eyes, you’ve already won.LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE ON APPLE PODCASTSAbout this podcast: I created this podcast because i needed to find a way to stay in touch with my friends, social media acquaintances, and life-coaching clients while i built a life for myself in Moscow, Russia.
