Heart, Hustle, and Soul
Gary Vaynerchuk has become the standard bearer for hustling. He is a showman without a doubt, but the fuel for Gary’s rocket ride to becoming one of the most iconic online persona’s today is the value he consistently provides with his content and the integrity with which he has built his brand.
Gary seems heartfelt in wanting every single person he touches to break free from the soul-sucking trap of the rat race. He implores people to take definitive and immediate action in pursuit of their own entrepreneurial dreams. Read More
A Stitcher Original Series Podcast
I would imagine that most people could relate to feeling some sort of sense that there is something better for them out there in the world.
At one time or another, most have probably felt the pull of an opportunity offering the promise of a purpose and an upgraded lifestyle if they just remained focused on the goal with positive intentions.
If cultivated in the right manner, these desires could be used to harness action towards a worthwhile pursuit in life. If left unchecked, these yearnings could be preyed upon and taken advantage of without the slightest hint of impropriety ever being revealed in the offering until it was too late and the damage was done.
The Dream is a brand new podcast offering hosted by award winning journalist Jane Marie that takes a hard, investigative look at multi-level marketing, a model of selling and distributing products peer to peer with a tiered sales recruiting component being the fulcrum of the entire operation.

The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast
Top Of The Podcast Game
Podcasts have exploded over recent years. There seems to be a show available to fit anyone’s interest from the broadest of ranging topics to the most narrow of niches.
To me, there is no one creating better podcast content than Joe Rogan. He is a prolific producer of shows and his guests are consistently captivating.
Joe is a comedian at heart but his podcast show does not revolve around comedy. Quite often the discussions center around deconstructing life and examining current social issues. Those are the topics that have always most fascinated me about his show.
While there are countless individuals from a wide range of interest and walks of life who have made repeat visits to the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast there is one individual who I believe is the undisputed best and greatest recurring guest. That guest is Duncan Trussell. Read More

An Era Of Unlimited Content
We live in a remarkable time right now where access to information and content is at the tip of our fingers ready to be streamed at a moments notice.
The leveling out of content distribution, via low-cost and low-barrier outlets, has allowed for a proliferation of content creators to rise up from seemingly out of nowhere to allow their voices and stories to be heard.
All of these videos being shared throughout the social media landscape have served to empower others to open up, be vulnerable, and bravely share their own stories.
Anyone looking to make a single step towards some positive change in life or a radical and wholesale change to their entire lifestyle can simply jump online these days and get lost in the countless on-demand videos of hope, information, and inspiration. The first destination those individuals should want to visit is Goalcast.

Words Matter Podcast
A Stalled Political System
Politics in the United States is beyond a hot mess and it has been for years. The car crash analogy is a fitting one: As painful and sad as the wreckage all appears to be I just can not turn away from looking.
On one hand, I am completely fatigued by the incessant churning of the 24-hour political news cycle while on the other hand I am routinely drawn into getting a daily fix of stories and analysis.
I will put this out there right up front, I am left-leaning, but I suspect like the majority of Americans I gravitate towards the middle.
While I am fully supportive of the social freedoms the Democrats espouse, I am disheartened by their lack of vision and incapability of voicing a cohesive message. In the face of our mounting federal debt, I am intrigued by fiscally conservative principles touted by traditional Republicans, but where are the supportive actions and policies? Bush exploded the debt while in office and the trickle down theory is a joke in practice with wealth disparity raging out of control. Read More
The Wonder Of Our Bodies
Our bodies, their functionality, and their intricate design are truly something to marvel at. Our bodies can also, unfortunately, veer off into dysfunctional physiological behavior, firing off discomforting or even bizarre outbreaks of symptoms at times.
Oftentimes, many of us ignore rashes, bumps, or other more alarming signals from our bodies in hopes that whatever the heck is causing the current malfunctioning will simply go away.
When we do finally find the time or get up the necessary courage to go see a doctor, we are often treated to a 5-minute crash course visit with an overworked and seemingly uninterested healthcare provider who quickly grabs for a prescription pad prior to even having an in-depth or probative conversation with us.

The Top Fantasy Football Podcasts
Fantasy Football Goes Mainstream
Football is back and that is a beautiful thing. While my interest in other professional sports has seemed to wane a bit as I have grown older and started a family, my passion for NFL football has increased tenfold and borderlines on an obsession.
There is no doubt that my love for fantasy football has fueled my continued and increasing interest in the NFL. The way that pro football is covered by major sports media these days, highlighting fantasy stats and catering to fantasy players, is a clear indication that I am not alone in this doubling down of interest in the NFL. The explosion of fantasy football and the ascension of the NFL seem to go hand in hand. Read More

Common Sense With Dan Carlin
Common Sense #318 - For Whom the Bell Trolls
I know I am late to the party with a commentary on a political podcast episode that was released a couple of months ago, but every breath that Dan Carlin uttered on his Common Sense podcast Show #318 is still very relevant and will be so the foreseeable future.
