    We Were Here with Adam JK

    This final episode of the You Are Here (For Now) book tour podcast was recorded like 1 hour ago and uploaded in its unedited form. I discuss what I learned in in the process of releasing this book and podcast and thank the people who made it possible. 

    But mostly I want to wish you well as you continue on your own journey because there's so much more to come for all of us, but for these dozen episodes, unbound by time and place, we were here together.

    You Are Here (For Now): A Guide To Finding Your Way is available wherever books are sold including my own website, AdamJK.com. Thanks so much for listening.

This chapter is about the work of being happy – setting expectations, creating boundaries, and if necessary, asking for help. Followed by a bit of guided introspection, our sort-ironic-sorta-not audio treatment for the visual art portions of the printed book.

Such deep and adorable conversations!

These episodes feel like a therapy session. Adam is so open and his guests are as well, which I think comes from Adam making them feel safe and welcome. I’m so glad Adam started this podcast, I’ve been wanting to hear more from him. I also like to discover people trough his guests curation.
