27 episodes

We grew up in a world we didn’t create. And one idea after the next—whether it was culture or society—we were told how to look, how to feel, and who to be. We were told that if we checked off the “right” boxes (think: career, car, money), we’d feel good, we’d be whole, and—naturally—we’d be set. But, turns out, there’s more to the story.

On The Great Unlearn, Cal dives into unlearning and questioning what the world taught us, and—in the process—how to be the truest version of yourself, minus the b******t. Whether it’s figuring out how to navigate a relationship, dealing with your emotions, diving into spirituality, or just feeling comfortable in your own skin, Cal and friends navigate the choppy waters of what it really takes to unlearn all the ideas we took for granted, and how to be the best version of what, sometimes, can be so hard to be: yourself.

    Luke Ryan | Exposing Corruption in the Justice System & Unpacking White Privilege

    Luke Ryan | Exposing Corruption in the Justice System & Unpacking White Privilege

    Today’s guest, is an old college buddy of mine…when I say old, I mean over 25 years ago. Today I welcome on Luke Ryan to the Great Unlearn. At the age of 16 his best friend committed suicide, something that as his college roommate I knew nothing about. By the time he got to Amherst in 1990 Luke didn’t have a drugs-and-alcohol problem as much as a drugs-and-alcohol solution. By age 26, he found sobriety and got involved with a church-ministry group that was more than tapped into racial justice. Through the group, he realized that white privilege kept him from becoming a convict. We dive into Luke's past, present, and so much more in today's episode!
