I noticed that I have not been fully transparent on this podcast, and for that I apologize. I have talked about my background with guests on the show, but not given you the full story of who I am and where I have been – that’s pretty much podcast 101, so today I am going to hit the reset button and start over. Consider this my trailer episode that never was. The origin story of a boy who never grew up and still calls himself a lost boy – bangarang by the way.
Americans are the unhappiest they’ve been in 50 years. 50 YEARS. A COVID Response Tracking Study, conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. It finds that just 14% of American adults say they’re very happy, down from 31% who said the same in 2018. “It’s been one thing after another,” a woman named Walker said, when asked. “This is very hard. The worst thing about this for me, after so much, I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
That’s the point! None of us know what’s going to happen. Get out of your comfort zones, this idea that you are in any way in charge of the world. Pull up your bridges and get over yourself.
