    #11 Q&A With My Dad: George Bailey

    Back from the long break with a special episode!

    My father is one of the most interesting people I know.
    Among other things, he’s a Vietnam War veteran, helicopter pilot, sailboat captain, non-fiction book author, artist, designer, boat builder… the list goes on.
    During his recent visit to Lisbon, I had the chance to ask him some questions about life, career, and some eventful moments in his 76 year (and counting) run on the planet.

    #10 The Leap of Faith

    Have you noticed the "leap of faith" trope in fiction? You've certainly encountered it.
    Why don't we bat an eyelash at the fact that something akin to "leap before you look" seems to be great advice for characters in fiction? Why do we buy into this idea, so often encountered in stories?
    In this episode we explore the critical role this motif plays, both in stories and in how we make progress in reality.

Outstanding

Really makes me think about stories in a new light. Love how the host uses the abstract ideas to give practical, helpful advice. And the story segment at the end!!

Full Circle

TCA turns us toward comfort by providing an eclectically personalized awareness of the directional inspiration always available in our shared stories whether fiction, art, history, science, religion, philosophy, or you.

Our worries are fractals of simpler factors. Khemit’s philosophy guides me to reintegrate my complexities back toward their more sensible points of fracture which are increasing more universal characteristics of the human condition. In this resimplification of self, we rediscover our likeness to strangers... our source code.

Your ideal path flows through the dead center of your paradox.

Flow with it... Flow with yourself.

Listen up!

Just two regular dudes with an abnormal capacity for watching, digesting and reviewing books, movies and other interesting topics. Their fun banter makes me enjoy even topics that I wouldn’t normally be interested in; my commute flies by with their help!
