"The best way to judge a relationship is by how much better-- or worse --you've become by being with them." - Rodney.  If you enjoy a good love story, this is for you... I was the MC at Soky and Vanier's multicultural wedding reception in December 2022. 3 months before the wedding, I sat down with the couple to hear their story as part of my preparation for their big day. What transpired was a conversation that was worthy of a podcast episode. Soky describes their relationship as transformational. She details how Van changed her perception of how relationships should be and the things he made her feel. Van shared the poetry Soky inspired on the night he first laid eyes on her at a games night event in Abuja.   Soky on IG: @ soky_bechina Vanier on IG: m1sta_v IG: @theyounggodpod Twitter: @iamtheyounggod ------------- Extended Listening What Makes A Person Irresistible PART 1: What Makes A Person Irresistible PART 2: What Makes a Person Irresistible PART 3: How to Not Suck at Relationships: Other links:

"if you want to deepen the connection you have with someone – if you want to give yourselves a chance to build something meaningful, something that goes the distance, learn the balance between absence and presence in seduction." - Rodney. One of the surest ways to ruin a potential relationship of any kind is to be too eager, too available... too desperate.

"While we're fans of sleep, we are fans of something far more powerful, as well... While others enjoy their dreams, we wake and watch them come true."

My speech has everything -- a little bit of pettiness, a lot of gratitude and a few nuggets of wisdom. Dare I say, I gave the ultimate acceptance speech.

"Sometimes, it isn’t just that the person died. It’s that the part of you that only they could bring out will never be brought out again…" A tribute to my friend -- and [post-humous] number one fan -- Sofia Gambino, who passed away a year ago to the release of this episode. I reflected on her life, my grief, and our special relationship. This reflection took me down a rabbit hole where I entertained some unusual ideas about my own mortality, Jesus Christ's human experience on earth, and my envy of dead people! In loving memory of Sofia Gambino.  Listen to my conversation with Sofia here: Marriage, Mafia, and Building a Coffee Empire
