    Talks 277 - Dr. Jim Rentz, Sr., Vietnam War Chaplain & Family Therapist

    Talks 277 - Dr. Jim Rentz, Sr., Vietnam War Chaplain & Family Therapist

    The growing network of Spaniard contacts led to Dr. Jim Rentz, Sr., a retired marriage & family therapist inspired to help work toward peace after serving as a U.S. Army Chaplain during the Vietnam War. Perhaps destiny led here as well, since Jim is a stroke survivor, because this talk happened 9 years to the day after Spanny’s own stroke. Jim discusses the turmoil that led him and his wife to adopt a Vietnamese orphan … surviving bitterness as a scorned veteran … appreciating the resilience of his father after tuberculosis … and more.

    Talks 276 - Scott Adams, Dilbert Creator/"Loserthink" Author - Return Visit

    Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, is on Spanny’s podcast again? It was unbelievable the first time (way back in Talks 144, December 2017), and it is again. Scott’s new book is ””Loserthink: How Untrained Brains Are Ruining America.” He discusses how this book grew out of thinking patterns that he observed on Twitter … his own ability to analyze with detachment … using silence for defense and ego as a tool … and more.
