Holy Mother of Podcasts, You’re Doing WHAT?!? (Update)

Podcasts are a living organism. As we go on this journey, looking to encourage one another and experience life together, changes will occur. Socrates once said that the secret to change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new. The last few months have given us great insight into what works, what doesn't; what is fun, what is status quo; what is entertaining, what is… not. In this update, Brian will share about what we can expect moving forward and all the fun stuff that lies in our future!

Happy Superhero Friday! We are thrilled to welcome Kevin Bachelder to the show, a podcaster with whom both Brian and I go way back (Brian longer than I). We met Kevin during our time at TV Talk, where he and Brian started an Arrow podcast, which they brought over to Golden Spiral Media and added me to the fray. Kevin's adventures in podcasting have led him around the sci-fi/fantasy world, from his long-standing podcast Tuning into Sci Fi to his newer podcast for Wynonna Earp. Look inside for links to check out more of Kevin's work!

Never Trust a Leader Without A Limp | The Monday Experience

Whether the struggle and pain we face manifests itself in a visible physical ailment, or it is something less obvious, simply be not talking about it doesn't make it not real or not prevalent.

Make a Frackin' Decision | The Monday Experience

On one extreme we have the impulsive, in-the-moment decision maker who takes little time for contemplation or reflection; on the other extreme we have the overly-cautious, analytical type who is paralyzed by the contemplation of an impending decision. As with everything in life, here at the Real Brian Show we hope to help you think about finding a balance between these extremes because sometimes situations call for us to lean toward one or another side of this spectrum without going overboard.

Rest | The Monday Experience

Rest | The Monday Experience

Do you make time to rest? Intentional, unadulterated rest? Between professional responsibilities and home life, it's easy to get swept away and forget to return to a basic fundamental like resting. It's more than sleeping, it's taking a break, both body and mind, from the strenuous activities that otherwise occupy our time. The idea behind rest is to recover and there are some things as human beings we cannot do to recover, sometimes it requires not doing.
