Problems like these are not uncommon. But there’s a really good chance they’re not even problems; they might be polarities. In this episode I speak to Kelly Lewis, who with Brian Emerson, has published the book Navigating Polarities to help us identify and nimbly find our way through polarities.

    70: Tony Quinlan, Downgrading Your Certainty

    When we face intractable problems — wanting to change the trajectory of our lives and stalling, wanting to change the direction of our community and failing — an important area that we often don’t examine are the stories we tell ourselves and others. In this conversation I speak with Narrate CEO Tony Quinlan.

Powerful, Insightful, Impactful

Gideon manages to bring together the intellectual and the impactful, while entertaining as well. His curious line of questioning has listeners connect deeper to his guests and how their personal narratives informed their current roles and passions; while bringing forth interesting and educational conversations that keep the listener engaged. If you enjoy dynamic, slightly geeky, and uniquely informative conversations- then you will enjoy Where Genius Grows.
