    Sacred Strides Chapter 9 - Running Hurt

    Sacred Strides Chapter 9 - Running Hurt

    Dan and I have been walking through my most recent book, Sacred Strides. We're going chapter by chapter providing some insights into the stories and some add-ons.

    You know, kind of not quite behind the scenes of the making of it per se, but more like, what are the themes and why are they important? And do I still believe the things I said when I published this book. This week we go through Chapter 9.

    Sacred Strides Chapter 7 - Tripping Over Myself

    Sacred Strides Chapter 7 - Tripping Over Myself

    We are walking through the book Sacred Strides. Dan is asking questions, and we're re-narrating this book because it's cool. And I'd like to get it in your life somehow, shape, or form. So Dan has known me for a very long time; we've been partners for, goodness gracious, like a couple of decades, and we've done many different works together. And so he has a unique take on my work and what I'm doing with it. And it's been fun to walk through these chapters, have Dan point stuff out, and show me where the work could have made this a better project. - What a terrible podcast! I'm kidding. Join us as we go over the lessons and stories of Chapter 7.

Thanks for the honest and helpful conversations!

One of my favs

The start of the third season of this podcast jumps right back into the depth it started from with a cut-to-the-quick kind of conversation about justice, mercy, power, race...all the things we need to have conversations about. I’ve listened through the first 2 seasons, and that’s what I love most about this podcast. It’s about real situations and artistry that have important impacts for all of us in community together and it challenges us as listeners to continue learning, to create, to speak up, and do something beyond simply being informed.

It’s also encouraging to hear the stories of Justin’s guests who are people in all sorts of areas of expertise and status in life with one main thing in common — they are all people of passion who aren’t willing to just sit and watch the world spin. I love that this show isn’t just about one genre or one topic, but multiple conversations that overlap and all matter in our current culture and climate. They are all people worth learning from to say the least, and Justin leads the shows with great guiding questions and insight so I come away from each episode feeling connected to their stories and with a desire to dig deeper.

Engaging and Inspiring

Refreshing to hear honest conversations, with thoughtful questions and great content. Just found this through the Ryan O'Neal interview, but I'm hooked!

Geek comment : I do think the audio could be compressed a bit more so that the audio is louder and voices clearer while out and about, but even still turn it up and give a listen.
