Dec 11, 2014

How does one make their way and, dare we say, innovate in a world of binary opinions and blueprints? How do we trust ourselves? Oh and the Star Wars trailer.

The approaching winter, family games, Indiana Jones, Amanda Palmer and asking for help, hard conversations, being right or being happy, believing your thoughts.

Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving from Serious Business. We talk holidays, hygge, gratitude, warmth, slowing down and pregaming for the long winter ahead.

Nov 20, 2014

Our most serious and inspirational business yet. Toni and Mike talk about handling change and work—asking what's possible, callings vs. careers, what else is out there, leaps of faith, sticking to it vs. instant gratification, advice for writers, Julia Child, and being a novice.

Discussed: Kid Halloween vs. Adult Halloween, Toni's birthday, toe socks, personal flamethrowers, the Hulk's student loan debt, motivation and being on The Track. We also cover experiential learning, the value of hard work and changes of scenery to unlocking creativity. Of course there's also a fart story or two.

Discussed: Adventure Time, Doctor Who, binge watching, and garlic! We also cover the mind-body connection, being a germaphobe, passing on your anxieties, depression and medication, Space Ghost, Weezer, nesting dolls of yoga teachers, why Toni's not doing a Zombie Run but IS biking to the ends of the earth, fear, and the ivory tower of "what if."

Feeding your dang picky family, flaccid versus crispy bacon, gallows humor, inclusion, political robocalls, yearly plagues and panics du jour, pop-up camping disasters, methy campgrounds, Jerry Taft, the immortal dumpster in Mike's driveway, and what prompted Toni to smell it. "That was audible! It ties in!"

Oct 2, 2014

Drinking, in particular Coors Light and vinegar. Acupuncture. Being super reactive to mammals. Damp body types. Sugar makes mucous. Listening to your gut, literally, in both eating and cooking. Personality assessments and owning our labels. Something something iPhones and Apple Watches. That's as stupid as it sounds.

Discussed: Fussy coffee, why we can't have nice things, living for the present, gender bias, field trips to Google, soup, App Camp For Girls, the Henry Ford museum, and an extended riff on technology in the classroom. We also say "on the regular" on the regular. We recorded this episode before being part of Misfit Radio, so pardon our blatant disregard for our beloved patron network and ignorant pre-iPhone-6 tech punditry.
