#146 Conversations in Quarantine Taryn Voget-The Gypsy Genius

April 7, 2020 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes 

Today we’re doing something new… again. Since we are all sheltering in our homes, in quarantine, I have found many suggestions for maintaining sanity. One of the best suggestions out there is the one that satisfies a fundamental human need for connection: And that is “making phone calls” to friends, especially long lost friends.

So, what I decided to test is making one of the conversations on the podcast—live. The format is that I have contacted the person beforehand, just to let them know I wanted them to be on the podcast. And then I call them from the show to hold our “catch up in life” conversations.

Today’s conversation will be with my dear friend, Taryn Voget, a genuine gypsy in life and work. Still, very successful… and unique.

I hope you enjoy this experiment.

NOTE: we have just started testing the process, so expect a couple faux pas.

Change: Here It Comes Again…

April 5, 2020 by Charlie Hedges − 2 Comments

The one constant in our lives is change.” Dan Gilbert

One thing I can say about our lives in the USA for the past 4-5 years: As a nation, we’ve been stuck. The tedious battles between left and right have gotten us nowhere but alternating states of anger and angst.

#145 Terry Hershey: The Life-Giving Role of Pause and Connectivity

March 31, 2020 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes 

Truth is, the original podcast today lost good audio connection in taping, and could not be published today. I hope to publish another version next week.

So, instead of failing to post a podcast, Producer Paul, Terry Hershey and I did a 30 minute unprepared and unedited show on some interesting ideas of coping with the quarantine on “renaming” the situation we find ourselves in—one of opposites: the need for solitude in a crowded home and the need for a supportive and dependable community to depend on in these kind of circumstance.

No prepared questions with just a little prepared content direction, mostly just a conversation of three guys discussing probably the most awkward time of our entire lives.

Of all three ideas we concluded with please experiment with Terry’s free e-course on The Power of Pause that can help you adapt to these trying times. And allow a moment for your souls to catch up to these crazy times.

Love and Despair

There is no love of life without despair of life.”― Albert Camus

He was an active leader in the French Resistance in World War II when Albert Camus wrote those words. The world had found itself in a time of uncertainly and great despair. Yet Camus discovered a place for the love of life even in those most globally desperate times.

#144 Terry Hershey: Hope Has Not Been Cancelled

March 24, 2020 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes 

We are doing a timely show as we are deep in the initial stages of the Coronavirus on March 18, 2020 where virtually everything is cancelled or closed: schools and churches are cancelled, bars and clubs are closed, restaurants are closed to the public except for take out, no gathering of people at all so all events are cancelled from concerts to all sporting events to all conferences. And worst of all, Starbucks is limited to drive-through.

But, as our friend Terry Hershey wrote in his blog, Sabbath Moment, last Monday, one very important thing has not been cancelled, and that is HOPE. Hope has not been cancelled writes Terry.
