E38 John Kim Used to Be a Miserable F*ck

In the aftermath of heartbreak and divorce, John Kim discovered a passion to help others and went from an aspiring screenwriter to pursuing a career as a licensed therapist. To process his feelings and frustrations during that time, he began documenting his hero’s journey in a blog he titled The Angry Therapist.

“Why am I angry? Because the system is broken”

While working with troubled youth to collect his required hours for certification, he began to notice a painfully common theme among them: the physically and/or emotionally absent father. Because this rang true for him as well, his passions focused toward studying men’s issues, masculinity, and what it really means to “be a man.”

In this episode he shares about his own upbringing and experiences that have led him toward cultivating his own definition of “being a man. He believes every man must craft this definition for himself. He ultimately wrote a (soon to be released) book about it, titled: I Used to Be a Miserable F*ck: An Everyman’s Guide to a Meaningful Life.

The discussion also turns to the challenges of dating in the present social climate, the importance of “tribe” while on a path of self-betterment, why it’s ok to feel anger, and why dogs are the best therapists.

“I love the word Tribe because I think the greatest misconception about self-help is the word self. We actually are not meant to do life alone.”

Whether you’re a man, a woman, or neither, this episode definitely has something for you. We really love this one and are so curious to know your thoughts and feelings about it, too. We can see some great discussion coming from this one, please come back and share after you have a listen.

E31 Exploring the World of Music w/Incendio Band

Join us for a wonderful, exploratory, musical conversation with JP Durand and Liza Carbé of Incendio Band. 

From their website:

Formed in the summer of 1999 by Jim Stubblefield, Jean-Pierre Durand and Liza CarbéIncendio (which means “fire” in Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish) became a vehicle for the influences and compositional talents of the three musicians. Echoes of music ranging from classical, to jazz, to rock, to flamenco, to Celtic, to even bluegrass can be heard in Incendio’s music. It is no surprise that this eclectic blend of influences has led to a sound that is a truly unique one.
