    DUMB IT DOWN FINALE

    DUMB IT DOWN FINALE

    If I could count how manny people I've met, Lessons I've learned and friendships that have became from Dumb It Down, That would take some time. Because there is not a number that high. I was just a kid peer pressured by my parents to talk into a microphone. I had everything I could possibly need to succeed, but only I could flip the switch and make a podcast. And that was STILL hard to do, But once I did, I never looked back. I got so much wisdom from the best people in the best places, I got friendships from the friendliest, most welcoming people on earth, I got connection, I got money, and I got listeners, I got to travel too, I got to speak and sell for some of my dear friends and families companies. I knew I could never match that feeling of happiness again. My point is, as a twelve year old with tens of thousands of listens from all over the globe. My life was and still is AMAZING! And I know this is super cliche' but none of that feeling wood happen without, The support from my parents 24/7, the guests who took time out of their busy schedule to talk to some kid with a microphone and all my listeners, and every single one of you have built up my heart and my inspiration to keep creating. There is no feeling quite like being listened to by that many people.Ya'll have heard me laugh, and you have heard me cry, you might of heard me tell a terrible joke, but most of all, Ya'll have heard me grow. So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!  Thank you for every memory, every good comment on my website, Every word of inspiration, every hour you would take out of your day to listen to me. Your love is not un-noticed and deeply appreciated. Dumb it down will always be marked in my book of life. But it is time to close the show. This was the podcast that built me, this is what I did to be happy. Over the last year or so, I lost that happiness and did not have the same feelings for podcasting as I did before. But I am back, And I couldn't cling to an old podcast. I still love it, But doing something new always fixes a feeling of boredom. To keep the same love I had, I had to do something new. My new approach is "Just have a good time" Interview the right people and spread to more people like you. Alright, Im out.

    (sensitive topic) Kaden and Jorge Garcia on Suicide Prevention

    (sensitive topic) Kaden and Jorge Garcia on Suicide Prevention

    Kaden and his father Jorge Garcia are the founders of the stylish and trendy clothing company "Your tribe clothing." Here is the story of how it started. Kadens best friend died of suicide in 8th grade. Also, Jorge had a heart attack and considered suicide himself. After all these unfortunate events nothing happened. It was when  Kadens friend at Springville High School committed suicide and Kaden was the one who decided to make a difference. A week-long text conversation between Kaden and his father Jorge led to the company "Your tribe clothing." Sending the message of love and togetherness inspiring all those thinking of taking their own life. With a word strong word (in a good way) on the front with the shirt and a well-designed letter I (using the semicolon for that is the sign of suicide awareness). Words such as Fight, Running, Amazing, Loving, or someday Dumb It Down (just kidding don't want to destroy their company.)
     
    Here is an article I have read about them on KSL down here.

    Chat with my friend Savannah McCulloch

    Chat with my friend Savannah McCulloch

    A quick back story to this episode. Savannah used to be my neighbor, I would hang out with her and her brothers about all day 4-5 days a week. Then they moved to Europe for a while and are still there. So I had texted her a lot since she left but never talked to her. So I decided to chat with her over the phone about Europe. Here is how it went.

    Med Student Podcasters Sam Wilkinson and Bridger Battaglia

    Med Student Podcasters Sam Wilkinson and Bridger Battaglia

    I loved every second of talking to Sam and Bridger. At first, I was a little scared for this episode. I figured there are a lot of med student podcasts and let alone med students in the world today. So what made these two so special? I found out during the interview, It is not what they do that makes them special, It is who they are. These two are people who recognize the smallest and largest miracles in life such as Birth or Heart Surgery. Bridger was inspired to do this at a very young age Watching his younger brother get glass removed from his back. Sam was inspired because of personal loss. These two are both smart, kind, creative, and special Individuals. These guys taught me that even the most accomplished put in the work when nobody is watching.  People listening at home, I am just glad I got to talk to both of them. PS If you noticed I asked a few questions twice, That is because my battery died halfway through.
