If you're anything like me, doing uncertain things scares you. It's not bad to be scared, but we shouldn't let it hold us back. The greatest things we will ever accomplish in our lives are going to be somewhat terrifying. There's an unknown you can't ever remove when you consider the future, but what you can make sure of is that you are better tomorrow than you are today. My guest today is David Richards. David is an international best selling author, ex-marine, current yoga instructor, and life strategist. If those things seem disconnected, it's because they are all very different, but what they provide is challenge and purpose. That's what we talk about today, overcoming the biggest obstacle: Yourself. Let's take steps towards realizing our dreams! It's almost unbelievable that I've been in the top 3 education podcasts on Podbean for nearly two months now. That's all thanks to the listeners who take a brief moment to rate the show five stars on iTunes, Spotify, or Audible. It helps the show grow in ways you can't imagine. Also if you have not already, please tell someone you know to listen to this show. Word of mouth from listeners gets more people to listen than any other form of promotion I can ever do. I'm always looking for new topics, guest ideas, and questions from the audience.

United States, with top states Illinois and California. 2. United Kingdom. 3. Australia, led by Victoria. 4. Brazil! Enjoying it's first time in the top 5 I believe. 5. Canada, led by Alberta and literally a single listener away from being beaten by Sweden.
We've gone down in the trenches with mental health before, but never like this. Today we are going the full distance to the worst possible outcome... Suicide. My guest today is Frank King. Frank has been a comedian for almost four decades and wrote for The (very famous) Tonight Show for Twenty years. He's spoken at Seven TED events, and has several books available all on the topic of mental health and suicide. I'm also aware I've had a couple mental health episodes not far apart. I promise I'm bringing back the variety and this will be the last in the mental health series for quite a while. However, I want to do right by this serious problem and acknowledge that it's not a small issues. Most people probably know at least one person in their life who has committed suicide, and that's one too many. I don't want any of us to feel like that is our only way out. I've said it before and I'll say it again: If don't know who to talk to, or you have no one else, message me... Please.  Let's reach out to those we care about... before it's too late.

It's stories like today's that make me think we let ourselves down more than we are victims of life. And if we could just get it together, we could spend so much of our wasted time on helping other people My guest today is Samantha Pillay. Samantha is a urological surgeon, public speaker, business owner, and seven time children's book author. I feels like I should mention that Samantha was born with a debilitating spinal condition, overcame it to be the first female urological surgeon in all of Australian history! We go in a couple directions with this interview, but really it breaks down to overcoming your shortcomings to help others overcome theirs. If you want to help the show grow.

So often you're told growing up that college is the only way to secure your future. But what if the job you want doesn't require a degree? Do you still go to a nice university and take out loans just to say you did it? Sure the social aspect is an experience unlike what you'd find in your hometown, but it's not the only way to develop skills or make money. My guest today is Charles Chadwick. Charles earned two college degrees before realizing he was better of working a trade job and forgoing all the formal education he thought he would need. He has dedicated his life to helping students reduce college debt, if not eliminate it by finding an alternate route to happiness, fulfillment, job security, and income. Through his stories you'll see how this "Blue Collar Worker" has been able to travel from Albania to South Korea on a company dime.

We've covered some odd jobs on here before, but this takes the cake I think. Audience survey: Put your hands up if you would willingly crawl into a ditch on the side of the road and wrestle a snake three times your size? My guest today is Amy Siewe. Amy actually quit being a real estate agent several years back to pursue being a python huntress in Florida. She is one of only a hundred in the United States to have that job title, and I can't imagine there are many anywhere else on the planet.

Canada, with British Columbia and Ontario tying for the top spot! 5. the most contested spot all month goes to... Ireland! Narrowly winning over India.
I'm sure many of us have heard of dogs being brought into colleges to help reduce anxiety during finals, but never saw them ourselves. Well today you're going to hear all about these special Therapy Animals. My guest today is Larry Grogan. Larry Grogan is actually less well known than his lovable therapy dog Scrappy, and that's exactly how he prefers it. This is honestly a really interesting topic that I could see growing from the rare occurrence it is now, into something truly huge. Final reminder that I'll be in San Jose, California August 4th to 8th if any listeners want to hang out while I'm down there.

I think we have a pretty gentle outlook on alcohol, at least here in the United States. Its readily available from any corner convenience store and we accept that kids will be kids when they start drinking or throwing parties under age. However, I think most of us probably know someone who has several drinks a night, every night of their life. Not only does that make them a clinical alcoholic, but it also threatens to shorten their natural life by 30 years! My guest today is Andrew Culkin. One day he met the love of his life, Amanda, they got married and had a son, all while she was drinking full a bottle of wine per day. Things only went downhill from there. Amanda moved up from one bottle to over two a day, and multiple DUIs and accidents, lost close friends, and went to not one or two... but seven rehabs before ultimately passing away. Andrew now carries her story forward as a cautionary tale and tries to help others find help and understand the risks they are taking on.

Bumping a whole bunch of other contenders down a rung.
Whips and chains, leather and lube. That's the sort of image most people get when they hear the phrase BDSM, and it's not wrong. But the BDSM lifestyle is just that, a lifestyle. It's not something you should be ashamed of or unwilling to listen to.  This one is not for children, shield their tiny ears! My guests today are Slave Karma and Master Joshua. Karma Said was once a conservative reporter infiltrating Master Joshua's collective to write a scathing article, instead what she found was freedom and a new sense of identity. They are both here to discuss the pleasures and pitfalls that can come with choosing a non-traditional route of exploration with your partner and others.

Mental health. We use those words a lot, but we never allow ourselves to talk about in public. As if discussing it will make us seem weaker, or informing people around us will only hold us back. That's flat out not true though. Some people might always be insecure jerks looking to bring you down, but there are also many genuinely good hearted people who need you to speak up. This is going to be a kind of heavy episode with lots of potentially unpleasant topics. I do think it's important for as many people to listen as they can though. My guest today is Sonja Wasden. Sonja struggled with depression, bipolar, obsessive compulsive, and anxiety disorders for 30 years before  attempting suicide. She is now a keynote speaker and award winning author talking publicly about the need for more mental health awareness.

United States, losing ground to other countries and now with top states California and Oregon. 2. Australia, still led by New South Wales. 3. Canada, new top province Alberta just barely beating out Ontario. 4. United Kingdom 5. Germany, narrowly bumping South Africa down to #6. If you didn't know, I've switched things up a bit and am doing episodes twice a week for now. I hope you enjoy the extra episodes each week. I'll see you all Thursday for the next, scandalous episode.
Rise and grind. That's what we hear everywhere, every day these days. All of this really breaks down to how free you are to live the life you want without answering to a corporate ladder. That's where you get the side hustle. My guest today is Nick Loper. Nick is a best selling author and award winning podcast host of the Side Hustle Show which goes out twice weekly to a massive audience.

Yikes, today I learned that amongst people who succeed in losing all the weight they want to, only 3% actually keep the weight off for good. That's a 97% failure rate for a really common goal that we have all probably set at least once. My guest today is Elizabeth Sherman. Elizabeth has been a life, health, and weight loss coach for closing on two decades. She is also the host of the podcast "Done with Dieting" where she explores all things health related with various guests. She's here to give up the top tier tricks for achieving our weight loss and exercise goals. Let's learn how lose some weight and finally keep it off!

Happy bonus episode listeners! I hope you are ready for a brief trip through what it's like to have a stroke, because that's the show today. My guest today is Marcia Moran. Marcia suffered a major stroke back in 2014 and decided she would not stand by and let her new disabilities control her life. She spent a lot of time in various therapies as you'll soon hear, recovered almost completely, has written a book discussing the entire experience, and is now certified as the only civilian without a medical license to provide microcurrent neurofeedback. A treatment that Marcia credits a large portion of her recovery to. DumbEnoughPodcast@Gmail.Com  See you next week for our normally scheduled episode!
You know... when I was setting up this interview I never imagined I'd hear the line: "I employ a woman because the studio makes me".

Did you know there's a difference between Collectable and Collectible? I didn't either, until I started putting this episode together. My guest today is Duane Scott Cerny, Founder and Co-owner of the Broadway Antique Market, the oldest antique shop in all of Chicago. He is also the author of several books which have spent time as #1 on the best seller list, and here to speak about selling dead peoples things... also known as antique dealing.

How much would your life change if you could see a status window for your real body? If you could actually watch fast food decrease your overall health, or if reading a book gave you a physical confirmation that you are smarter. That's "gamification" in action. My guest today is Yu-kai Chow, a man who many credit with the creation of gamification as we understand it today. He owns businesses, has written novels, speaks publicly, and advises privately on all aspects of gamification and how it can be applied beneficially in almost any field. This was an extraordinary opportunity to talk to someone who literally created a new field of study in the world. A huge shout out to all of the new and existing listeners. The growth I've been seeing has been so amazing that it's hard to believe. Downloads of this show have nearly tripled in just one month! That wouldn't be possible without people like each of you taking the time to listen to the things I do and people I talk to on here. Also the newest episode of the Iconoblast Podcast, #85 Megalodons and Dinosaur Poop, just came out today and I'm the guest star on that. Coop and Joel are great guys and the show is super funny, albeit much more crude than this if that bothers you.

Did you listen last week to hear how you could write your own story and get it read? But what if you don't have a natural talent for writing or storytelling? Perhaps your best bet to garner attention for your creative endeavor, business, or startup is through PR. My guest today is Dick Grove, Chairman and CEO of Ink Public Relations. Dick brings over 50 years of PR experience, making him one of the most experienced guests to appear on the show. He was also on the team responsible for one of the greatest marketing pivots in  all of history when Coca-cola had to backpedal away from "New Coke" back to "Coke Classic". We were both going through some unfortunate weather which made our connection through video suffer somewhat, apologies for that. But for now, Let's earn our place in the news. If you want to help the show grow, rate it five stars on iTunes, Spotify, or Audible. By far the best thing you can do is just to tell someone about this show.

Let's write something  that wont be ignored! My guest today is Maddy Osman, Founder of The Blogsmith, as well as author of "Writing for Human & Robots". She specializes in beating the algorithms of the digital age and helping creators not be buried in search results. Sorry my mic quality is noticeably worse for this intro, I promise it doesn't effect the rest of the show, but I'm doing all my post production work on my laptop while in Texas. If you're in the Austin area, let me know so we can hang out. I'm around until Tuesday and so far only have Thursday fully booked up. Reach out: DumbEnoughPodcast@Gmail.Com or on any of the social medias! I didn't get a chance to read the rankings, but I'll still list them here: 1. United States.

The United Kingdom. 5.  Netherlands. Congrats on your first time in the top 5!
Therapists going to therapy?! Well what respected therapist would do something like that... except... you know... any reasonable person? My guest today are Joan and Jane or the "Therapy Twins" are, as you might guess, identical twin sisters who worked professionally as therapists for a combined total of over 60 years. Despite being twins they lived very different lives, experiencing trauma through different filters and processing in different ways. Being upfront This interview is a rollercoaster. It's the first time I've got three people talking on the show instead of two and took some effort to keep us all together. This episode has an explicit tag for a reason, things get a tad intense. Also I want to give a huge thank you to all my listeners. The podcast has just hit the number two featured spot yet again on the Podbean streaming service and the amount of attention it's been gathering world wide has absolutely blown me away.

The states Oregon and California firmly on top. 2. Australia, Victoria at the top. 3. Canada, with Ontario holding it's top province spot. 4. The United Kingdom 5. India If your country, state, or province isn't in the top 5, share this podcast with others in your area to climb the ladder and earn recognition.
