    EP#73 - How to Stay Motivated When You're Happy

    EP#73 - How to Stay Motivated When You're Happy

    Each January is new chance to be introspective and set new goals for self-improvement. But what if you’re happy already? Do happy people not need to improve? Won’t that lead to stagnancy? On this episode of Knowing Nothing I want to think about just that. How do we find the balance between motivating ourselves to improve and being happy with who we are now? Let’s talk about it.

    EP#72 - Travel Log #2 "What's So Great About Italy?"

    EP#72 - Travel Log #2 "What's So Great About Italy?"

    I just got back from Italy yesterday, and I think I'm a little different now. Italy is absolutely incredible. It is historically rich, the culture is cool, the food is f***ing INCREDIBLE, and the people are so so different, and also just like us. Traveling really does change you, at least for a little while. In this episode I share with you what changed in me from my experience in Italy. (Hey that rhymed).

    EP#71 - Travel Log #1 "Rome & Florence"

    I am sorry this episode is coming out late. Finding public wifi while traveling has been more difficult than I anticipated. But here is a new episode of KNOWING NOTHING! Grant Crawford (from Twenty Somethings Podcast) and I have been traveling around Italy, and we're learning so many new nothings, it's almost embarrassing! This episode is about the initial culture differences we've noticed during our travels.

    EP#70 - Why We Put Trees in our Houses on Xmas!?

    EP#70 - Why We Put Trees in our Houses on Xmas!?

    Ho Ho Ho! Merry freaking Christmas everybody! On this episode of Knowing Nothing I thought we ought to get to the bottom of a question that’s been bothering me since I was a wee boy leaving cookies out for Santa. Why the heck do we christmas celebrators put trees in our houses for the holidays? What a strange tradition! So today we learn what that’s all about.
    Then– Because it’s Christmas, I thought it would be fun to answer three other questions I’ve had all year too. 
    Why is popcorn the food of choice at the movies?  Why do we blow out candles on our birthday?  And 3. Why do we ‘knock on wood’ whenever we don’t want something bad to happen?
    So let’s learn some Nothings!

    EP#69 - Lucky To Complain

    Behold! After a one week hiatus, amidst all the stresses of life, a new episode of Knowing Nothing appears!  Doesn’t life just get so busy when you agree to take part in it? Sometimes so busy all you can do is complain? Isn’t that just awesome? What a great privilege it is to complain about life. It’s the best bad thing that’s ever happened.

Very nice production and easy to listen to

Mickey's voice is very easy to listen to, and he explains things so well. The speed in which he delivers the conversation reminds me a lot of This American Life. I also love the production quality, audio is top notch.

Uplifting Listen

Episode 5 was a fantastic listen after a crappy day. Brilliant stuff to make me appreciate the great things in life and to not let one unfortunate event ruin my mood.

Keep up the great work
