    Ep. 38 - Authentic Warrior Radio feat. Bobby Ellingsen

    Ep. 38 - Authentic Warrior Radio feat. Bobby Ellingsen

    In episode 38, I had a real conversation with my friend Bobby. We discussed resilience, boundaries, self-awareness, parenting, compassion, broken government programs, not spreading s****y day energy, how we think and feel about the experience of authenticity, and his negative first impression of me. 
    This episode is packed full of value and meaningful dialogue. I included an intro that focused on what I've learned and taught about boundaries. The outro, featuring Claire Sarff-Foden, a licensed therapist, discusses the task of communicating with a friend about seeking counseling. 
    This episode is different than most of the ones I've posted. Please let me know what you think about it!

    Ep. 37 - Authentic Warrior Radio feat. Claire Sarff-Foden

    In episode 37, Claire and I went hiking up Chuckanut Mountain together, and took turns answering 12 questions, as a response to this article.  This is the first of three episodes we'll be recording, each with a set of 12 questions, totaling 36. The questions are supposedly designed to facilitate vulnerability and exposure. We decided to turn it into a playful experiment. Let us know what you think!

    Ep. 36 - Authentic Warrior Radio feat. Benji Warrior (Interviewed by Claire Foden)

    Yo! It's been a while! I'm back, with Authentic Warrior Radio version 3000.0!
    For the first time ever, I've decided to be a guest on my own podcast. In this episode, Claire asks me some questions about the podcast, including what I've been up to since I stopped posting, why I took a break, what I've learned, what I've inspired me to start this podcast in the first place, what inspires me to continue it now, and what changes I plan to make going forward with the show. We also talk a bit about a zillion other things.
    I have a backlog of episodes from last year, that I'll be posting between new episodes. I implore you to email me or message/comment on social media, to let me know what you think about the changes I mention, what you'd like to see and hear going forward, who you'd like me to have on the show. What were your favorite qualities of AWR, before? What would you like to hear more or less of? Are you or a friend inspired to be on the show?
    Thank you very much for checking this out. I'm looking forward to connecting!!!

    Ep. 35 - Authentic Warrior Radio feat. Wil Nelsen

    Wil Nelsen has been a father since he was a teenager. Watching family, friends, and co-workers work very hard to continue to live an unsatisfying lifestyle, Wil set out to learn from their success and failures. His curiosity grew into a podcast, an audio log of people living diverse experiences, and it’s effects on our common day-to-day lives. For example, if a rock climber has to overcome fear and the demand for responsibility, is it easy to be organized and confident in life?

    Ep. 34 - Authentic Warrior Radio feat. Jenna Goodman

    Welcome to episode 34 of Authentic Warrior Radio, featuring Episode 24's very lovely Jenna Goodman, a friend of mine who is a local artist and a very thoughful human. This episode of AWR, hereinafter referred to as "AWWWRRRR!!!" is brought to you by Taj Eye, the maestro of video, music, and paint who was featured way back on episode 10. If you appreciate the cover art of this podcast, go over to tajeye.com and have a look-see at Taj's beautiful works. You can also go to authenticwarrior.org/friends and find a link to his website. If you're like me, and you have eyes, and a heart, don't miss this opportunity to feed your heart the artistic visual substance that it's always begging you for. It's begging because it's a human heart, and those things need art in order to continue cultivating spirit in the world. Would you starve your kid, or your pet? Unless you're some kind of abusive, rotten, toxic, neglectful, demon-plagued, psychopath, you had to have answered no to that question. If you didn't this is not the podcast you'll like, but it might be the one you need. And if you did answer no, then dude, by gosh, feed your heart before it turns to stone and you start rampaging through the city, committing hate crimes. I know that it's complicated and it might seem like a stretch to believe, but if you look in a text book at a college, it will tell you that the eyes are the mouth holes that feed art to your heart. So go to TajEye.com, right now, to avoid becoming a psychopath. You can also go to www.sunspotseries.com and prevent yourself from committing hate crimes by consuming her beautiful, fascinating art.

    Ep. 33 - Authentic Warrior Radio feat. Megan Galley

    Enjoy this episode of Authentic Warrior Radio, featuring the marvelous, the merry, the majestic, mixed bag of magical magnetism, Megan Galley. Megan is a human whose magnificant, massive energy is more meaningful and moving than my meager mind can muster the must-have magnitude or mutterings to macrame together even a make-shift monstrosity of words to accurately describe. She's funny, sweet, beautiful in all the ways, loving, compassionate, vulnerable, real, intelligent AF... and here I am making my morose, sad excuse for a masterpiece, while you listen mindfully, your motivation dwindling, me missing my moment to mack on your curiosity. I've met my match, mofo.

A great new podcast, he should be known!

A cleverly put together podcast by a driven man. Very witty, silly humor keeps your attention. He gets the message out there to inspire kindness, courage and to educate ourselves. Very well spoken gentleman, can't wait to hear more.

Excellent!!!

I've listened to every single one!!! Unpredictable, intelligent, creative all around, and entertaining. I like hearing about other people's experiences in that raw way that happens when two people are privately talking. Benji's podcast is raising my awareness of the people in my community. I'm waiting for the next one!!!!!
