In this episode, I'm in the hot seat as my friend Cristina unleashes her inner journalist on me to find out what's behind my love of social radio, which has become my latest passion project. I also talk about how I got into Internet radio and my time at Radio Warwickshire. I also reveal my plans for the reboot of the Musical Journey show.
#AudioMo Day 14. I get reacquainted with the Triggering Town.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. - Helen KellerThis quote has been with me for a long time. In my youth, adventure was my north star. I shunned the mundane. I hated the idea of living an ordinary life, doing ordinary things with ordinary people. I joined the military because as the recruitment poster said, “It’s not just a job, it’s an adventure.” Post military, I continued my pursuit of adventure - jumping out of airplanes, rock climbing, mountain climbing, racing down mountains at break-neck speeds on a mountain bike, canoeing, adventure traveling, you name it, I was doing it. I became a thrill-seeking adrenaline junkie. And life was good.At some point, domestic life caught up with me - wife, kids, corporate job. The raging flames of adventure settled down into a smoldering fire on the verge of going out. Over the past decade, I’ve settled into my role as a domesticated primate. I do interesting things. I get a bit of excitement from time to time, but no BIG adventures, no extreme uncertainty with death as a real possibility. I haven’t put my life on the line in ages. I haven’t felt that rush of adrenaline and extreme focus that comes with knowing that one small mistake, one lapse in concentration, could cost me my life.Normal people my age are thinking about retirement or buying that little cottage somewhere in the country where they can settle into old age comfortably and peacefully, entertain the grandkids from time to time, and tranquilly wait for death to come calling.Me, I’m hearing Dylan Thomas whispering in my ear:Do not go gentle into that good night,Old age should burn and rave at close of day;Rage, rage against the dying of the light.And I’m thinking how can I turn up the heat and go out with bang instead of a whimper.

#AudioMo In the last couple of days I've been able to get into flow state. I love that feeling. It's awesome. So what have I been doing to get into flow state?
I've been threatening to go on hamburger adventure for many years, now I think the time is ripe. We've been cooped up for a year dealing with this whole pandemic thing and now that we're finally allowed back out, I'm ready to hit the road. In the episode, we lay down the foundation of our burger rating system.

After a year of Zoom meetings, we now need to relearn how to look people in the eyes in order to establish trust.
 In which I discover I can't do it all, much to my dismay.
I'm feeling a little lighter today. Maybe because it's Thursday and the workweek is coming to a close. Or maybe it's because I'm lifting heavy weights again after a year off because of the pandemic. Doesn't matter. What matters had a good lunch session on soulcruzer on the radio, which by the way, I think I'm going to rebrand to an old brand I use to have sport - The Musical Journey show. I explain more in the audio:

From his bunker somewhere deep in the heart of Warwickshire, Soulcruzer talks to you about the slippery slope of time and how he’s not bothered about dying and is going into middle age gracefully. He also explains why he’s not qualified to give anybody advice on how to live their life. He also shares how Hunter S. Thompson’s Better Than Sex inspired him to live a Gonzo life, an attitude he hopes to bring to the show.  Also in this episode, Soulcruzer goes down the rabbit hole with Goombah on a Bike to talk about time.
From his bunker somewhere deep in the bowels of Warwickshire, Soulcruzer talks to you about his recent podcasting epiphany, trying to preserve the memory of himself post-apocalyptic pandemic. He also talks about his broken body, joining the e-bike revolution, and why he hates army hospitals. He also shares how he tried to bring back the old normal and failed, his Baine impression, and what you can do to get your very own Soulcruzer goombah badge.
In this episode, I catch up with my friend Laura Heeley to chat about Vishen Lakhiani's little gem of a book: The Code of the Extraordinary Mind.
