    Rebranding This is a True Story Podcast

    Rebranding This is a True Story Podcast

    So I am rebranding This is a True Story Podcast.
     
    The past year I really loved sharing transformative stories and ideas. From the first story of finding love and near death in death valley to hiking the PCT, to discovering oneself by experimenting with plant medicine, silent meditation, solo travel and many more stories. All I loved equally and fully. I found a ton of happiness in publishing these stories. The podcast did rise fast with lots of support in the form of downloads and I am forever grateful. Thank you.
     
    So here is where the podcast is going. The podcast is now called Minimalism with Intention and here I will share stories, ideas and conversations focused on minimalism and intentionalism. A lot of the stories I shared on This is a True Story we’re very much stories of intention, meaning living an intentional life, a life centered on one’s core belief and value and purpose. I also shared quite a few episodes focused specifically on minimalism. So you will see some familiar themes moving forward. This podcast is for sure going to share a lot of transformative and inspiring experiences and ideas. I hope you will take part!
     
    Check out these minimalist stories here (I have many stories of intentional living published too!):

    Programming Pause for This Week and First Week of Janua

    Programming Pause for This Week and First Week of Janua

    I hope all of you are doing really well. We’re coming to almost a full year of sharing true and very transformative stories and also transformative ideas. I am really grateful for you, the listeners, and for the guests that have shared their amazing stories and sat with us afterwards to let us dig into their lives. This week and likely the first week of January we will have a pause in programming as I regroup for another year and prepare to release a few new projects. 
    Don’t forget, this is an underdog podcast and you can make a huge impact by quickly reviewing this podcast in Apple podcasts and or by hitting the buy me a coffee link in the show notes. This helps offset costs.
    I am excited for our next year and look forward to publishing more stories that will impact your soul. Much love, peace.

    What I Learned From Interviewing the Most Adaptive Individuals on Earth

    What I Learned From Interviewing the Most Adaptive Individuals on Earth

    I am about to share what the most adaptive individuals do in order reach their goals and better the world despite incredible adversity.
    The past six years I’ve interviewed hundreds (really likely much higher) of individuals that faced unimaginable adversities. Some have died. Some have lost a loved one. Some have lost the ability to move. Some have not only lost their health but at the same time have been abandoned by family and friends and thus forced to journey alone. Some have survived war and returned without limbs. Yet, as these storms surround these highly adaptive individuals, they’ve found a way to improve their position and make the world better. How? I will tell you what the most adaptive individuals do....

    Opt Out and Reclaim Your Life

    Opt Out and Reclaim Your Life

    My schedule was full of responsibilities. I had a bunch of social commitments I didn’t want to attend. My email and home inboxes were full of stuff. I paid for a bunch of packages, but I really only used one service. In my quest to get after life, my list of goals kept growing and many weren’t essential. When acquaintances, non-profits or other entities asked for help I almost always said yes...and while all this was going on I was having health complications. My body was breaking down and I was losing a bit of my mobility. I needed to learn how to opt out.

It Doesn't Get Any Better

Inspirational, transformational, and personal growth stories from real people like you and me, to the host's professionalism mixed with approachability, equates to a podcast that simply can't be topped. Scott Davidson is changing lives by being his authentic self. These true stories give everyone hope for better tomorrows.

Great format and host

I love how this podcast starts with the reading of a story. So unique! Then the host expertly integrates question which relate to the story and reveals the author's journey. Top notch!

Attention to detail

I have been listening to Living Adaptive for a few years now and Scott’s attention to detail is amazing. By far one of the best podcasts out....
