    055: 1000 Years From Now

    I know... we're supposed to be in the in-between, in the season break, but I have to clear the air. I have something to share with you. But first, a question.If someone said they were going to take a picture of you and a thousand years from now, the photograph will still look as it did the moment the photographer took it, would you feel any pressure? Would you travel 2,000 miles by car to sit for that photo? Just listen to the episode, I'll explain everything. * * *If you...

    054: You Gotta Go To Know

    Change is in the air. Baja Summer is making her graceful exit. October is just around the corner. It’s happening so fast but that seems to be how it works.Once things start to ramp up and the tectonic plates of life start to actually move; it’s only at that point, that I’m able to glance back and say, ah… that’s what that was all about.We all know change is hard and that the transition period before the big change can be fraught with discomfort. Sometimes we cope with this discomfort by ...

    053: Someone Had To Do It

    I don’t know why I ended up in that little surf village. It just looked like a cool place on my paper map, stashed way out there on a desolate point of land like the last berry on a branch drooping close to the ground.Oh, the things we discover when we load up the car and drive to a place we've never been. A place, that weeks before had been nearly wiped off the map by a hurricane. A place where, if you pause long enough, the idea you were searching for might just drift acros...

    052: Breaking Bread

    Anthony Bourdain said food is everything we are. It’s an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It’s inseparable from those. It may not be the answer to world peace but it’s a start. But what happens when your love affair with food turns sour? When what used to excite you leaves you cold. When culinary apathy sets in and nothing tastes good anymore. When you realize you just might know the answe...

    051: Gods Among Us

    How do I even begin to describe this episode?Well, in 1963, Paul Zahl, head guy at National Geographic coined a phrase when referencing the Coast Redwoods and Giant Sequoias in California. He called them the Mount Everest of living things. Fossils and seeds from these majestic beauties have been discovered in a place that can't be explained. Some date back 45 million years. What started as a simple assignment from my acting coach turned into an expansive journey that left me t...

    050: Commitment Chronicles

    "It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through." –Zig ZiglerEpisode 50! It's a pretty special day for us here at The Mind Unset because a little over a year ago, episode 1 went live. I remember feeling excited, overwhelmed, and so far behind everyone else in the game. The numbers told a tale that did not bode well for new podcasts. For example, of the 2.5 million podcasts out there in the univers...

Essentials

Today I really needed to listen to this perspective on the cycles of life. You see exactly 5 months ago, Sam left this world. He was my mate for 23 years, but, he was battling cancer. I am trying to reinvent myself and it is kind of fun and kind of scary, I am 72 years old with the spirit of a 20 year old. I am a Reiki practitioner who wants to help people feel better. I miss Sam today and feel a little sad, but your podcasts always give me cool stuff to think about, and I thank you for that.

Love this guy

Everything about Chris feels like talking to an old friend. His voice, his phrasing, his content. Thanks dude for being really great voice in a world that seems to be perpetually yelling. Your podcast is a bit of an oasis. Keep it coming - I am listening 🕺🏼

Incredible way to share a cup of coffee

A very soothing podcast with a cup of coffee. This podcast is always worth a listen and constantly thought provoking. Chris has such a calm and easy way about him, whether it’s on the podcast such a great variety of guests, or if we’re tearing through a bottle of Hornitos. Looking forward to more episodes.
