I love what you guys are doing through this podcast! When I listen I get the same feel I do from reading books by Brene Brown. You are giving your listeners freedom to be vulnerable by showing us we are not alone in the areas we feel alone and jacked up in. I love how you bring on guests who are so open about their struggles and failures. But, you also add to this by giving us this realization that we can do something about the problems we face individually, culturally, and in the world. The practical ways to give us to walk in freedom and power and be apart of something incredible makes this podcast one of favorites! Love it! Tasha

Rank #1: talking porn with the beach prophet- tony litster

Podcast cover
Read more

tony litster joins wes today in which we need to learn to love ourselves first and foremost. in order to avoid self-sabotage during this process, we need to shift the mindset from “if you really knew me you wouldn’t like me” to “the real me is awesome!” instead of focusing on the darkness within, we need to recognize the light.

when we learn to love ourselves, we can share our authentic selves with others and make change for the better. according to tony, there’s a difference between intensity vs love. in regards to porn and sex, it becomes an addiction of adrenaline, no longer making a fulfilling love connection. the more we intentionally connect experiences with someone we love, we shift the addiction that porn creates into something good that we then crave. we get back to the natural laws that are self-evident in which are bodies simply tell us by how good we feel, and it just makes sense (like gravity). you chose the story, but then you take action; you start with self-love, learning to accept yourself with the shadow. make an allowance for the humanity and realize that we’re all human.

Rank #2: project semicolon- amy bleuel

Podcast cover
Read more

we have crossroads in life, and sometimes the path we take will dictate the way how the rest of our life flows. today wes and ryan spoke with amy bleuel, founder of project semicolon on the importance of choice. you are choosing to pause and state that your story isn’t over yet; you’re continuing on. when we make the choice to help others instead of just focusing on ourselves, we find a bigger purpose. we find love.

when we create tangible reminders, we find power in what we are capable of as we shift self-destructive patterns to a simplicity of helping others. it’s the ultimate hope that if they can push on, so can i; some of the experiences we face are preparing us for something greater later on. this forms a pay it forward mentality to help others as they have helped you because you know that there is something better coming up.

Rank #3: his childhood – with jack canfield

Podcast cover
Read more

wes and ryan are able to make some incredible connections with jack canfield in today’s podcast, in which we learn some little known knowledge of jack’s childhood, which he described in one word as “challenging” helped shape the rest of his life.

the energy we create around us is fueled by finding our life purpose which we can then share with others. when we are able to visualize something, whether positive or negative, we have the power to make it happen, so doesn’t it just make sense to focus on the good?!

Rank #4: love wins – a convo about gays

Podcast cover
Read more

was today really a good day? did the gays really win?

today we had a ruling that will forever change the landscape of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. in this episode we talk about today’s ruling and what we should be bracing for in the future. sanctity of marriage hasn’t always been a government thing, it’s been a religious thing but now there’s a difference between holy matrimony and the union of marriage because the government approves of someone’s humanity.

it’s about having the right kind of conversation. are we celebrating victims or an act that should never have been an issue in the first place? love didn’t win today; the law won. the greatest strength we can take from this is to learn to love and move forward by starting a conversation.

Rank #5: how to talk about the “g” word

Podcast cover
Read more

When sharing a message and it comes across as “I’m better than you” rather than look at how much I am loved, feelings of worthlessness and not being good enough take over our self-worth. Religion walks a fine line of condemning sinners and lifting people up to become better than they currently are. Wes and Ryan have a very open discussion on religion and share a few “secrets” (they’re really not because it’s so simple) that they have been able to use to help lift up others, especially our youth. Perfection is not possible, so instead of shooting for that and continually failing, choose instead to become great.

Rank #7: a pastor, god and sex – kris vallotton

Podcast cover
Read more

how do we identify the misconceptions of breaking out of shame? love your neighbor AS yourself. special guest kris vallotton joins wes and ryan in a riotous podcast talking about their favorite subject; themselves. if you don’t love you, you won’t love them, meaning everyone else. confidence comes from identity, and identity comes from god.  developing a healthy soul is essential in our social interaction. our souls NEED attention.

the more we value someone, the more worried we are for rejection. when we believe we’re not the right one for ourselves, we’ll never find the right person. love is the key.

Rank #8: people over profit – dale partridge

Podcast cover
Read more

what are we actually chasing to bring fulfillment in life? wes chats with dale partridge that when it comes to finding true success in life, it’s about learning how to balance business and family life, creating purpose and connection with family while pursuing one’s life career. what started us here isn’t what’s going to get us there if we don’t take the time now to focus on what is non-negotiable in our life.

so where do we find our balance and worth? we’re not going to find it in things, but we will find it in our family relationships and accomplishing something. that act of caring for something else in its simplest forms teaches principles that can be taken back into the career world to show priorities and a sincere focus on what matters most in life.

Rank #9: how 2000 dead geese make Canada #1

Podcast cover
Read more

we have become a society full of catchy titles and cell phone videos posted online with the hopes of going viral. so does that mean that we’re suffering from a sickness? because the content has become garbage, what does that say about us as a society? according to wes and ryan in today’s podcast, writing is quickly becoming a thing of the past.

instead of focusing on real issues and problems instead of having a conversation about them, red herrings are thrown around in the form of unexplained phenomena. news has become a misconstrued version of one person’s opinion tossed out as fact, without any fact checking or research. this has not only been used on even reputable sites but is now considered acceptable, so when we as a society are actually presented with evidence and facts, we refuse to believe it because of one person’s opinion being louder than the sound truth.

EDITS BY A REDHEAD

Every so often, Wes and Ryan get their facts a little off. Little did they know that by having a redheaded history and English teacher do their show notes, they were also going to get called out when they don’t get their history right. I’ll try not to make fun of them as well, but you never know what you’re going to get with a redhead, so sometimes you’ll see this section and sometimes you won’t. Below are a few clarifications from statements made during today’s podcast:

  1. Princess Di was killed in a car crash in Paris
    1. Besides the fact that I still remember walking into my house after my first day of work from my first job to watch the news reporting the tragic death of Princess Diana, I also walked right past the very tunnel that she died in while visiting Paris. She did not die in London, Ryan!!!!
  2. Pulitzer and Hearst
    1. Clearly Wes does not have the soundtrack to Newsies memorized like some girl who shall remain nameless does. This same redheaded girl may or may not have also had a huge tween crush on pretty much every newsboy in the movie, but “The World Will Know” is pretty clear about which big business tycoons they were talking about.
    2. Rockefellers (they were oil big wigs) were NOT mentioned in Newsies, but at least Wes got the right time period, so that’s something, I suppose.
  3. 1994 article of Michael Fey caning
    1. This style of journalism, stating facts and using direct quotes without one’s own personal interjection has become a thing of the past, but it also allows the reader to make up their own mind about the issue.
  4. Yellow journalism
    1. What Ryan and Wes are describing with bad journalism getting content out without fact checking isn’t new. In fact, it nearly started a war with Cuba!
    2. Here are some examples of yellow journalism- present and past and the ignorance of yellow journalism as used by Marshawn Lynch.
  5. Canada is not always #1
    1. Wes will be greatly relieved to know that after looking up multiple sources on world rankings in education, Canada may always be towards the top of the list, but it’s not always #1. That honor almost always goes to an Asian country. Or Finland.
  6. Google search “fallacy” 
    1. One of the greatest, albeit difficult, helps I received while learning how to write historical papers came from learning how NOT to commit a historical fallacy.

Rank #10: failing forward – noah elias

Podcast cover
Read more

noah j elias, famed for his art in disney,  joins wes and ryan to share how important it is to find one’s life purpose and seeing the art in living. at 28 he hit a wall with a mid-life crisis and now helps people get to their “you,” meaning their unique contribution to the world.

it doesn’t take a million bucks to live like a millionaire. success can quickly become boring. if we want to succeed, we have to get uncomfortable. many have the desire to change the world, but it will do little good if our own houses, meaning the relationships at home, are not in order. the world is going to gets its greatest value from us that way.  we’re meant to do life together, and that’s when amazing things get done.
