Authentic. Bold. Collaborative.

Austin & DeRae create, cultivate, and deliver an outstanding platform to explore our humanity. Overall, this is an exceptional invitation for us to dive deep into the dynamics our connectedness and universality offer us to evolve. Be better, together. Invest in yourself and our global community by taking the time to listen in… laughter, thought provoking questions and meaningful memories included! Take yourself to the place where you might be afraid to go. Get curious, ask questions, be willing to get uncomfortable… for there, you may help yourself discover what you’re really capable of. Can you imagine that you are potentially much more capable than you ever even knew was possible? Go find out. Do it scared!
…Cautiously, of course!

Refreshingly honest dialogues we need more of in the world

I’ve recently started listening to Cautious Coffee and find it to provide a refreshing break from the typical emotionally inciting and politically biased media debates all around us searching for clicks.

Austin and DeRae have an honest dialogue about serious issues in a way that acknowledges their own biases and brings them to the table to further grow and learn.

Listeners of this podcast can learn more about issues through diverse perspectives and also use it as an example for how to engage tough issues with others in the world using empathy and grace.
