Are Podcasts Becoming Too Popular?

We Buy “The Why”

“And the Golden Globe for the best podcast adapted show goes to…”  could be a phrase we will all be hearing in the near future. In fact, I believe I may have heard an early rendition of it on the most recent awards broadcast.

I marvel at the juxtaposition of billionaire Steve Jobs and his mammoth, international corporation Apple having invented the iPod which ultimately gave power to the lowly individual to change the world.  

With a single device, one can record an “iPodcast” and their lone voice could be heard around the globe at any time. It is this rugged individualistic counter-culture ability that gave Apple its appeal to its consumers. However, I find it ironic that the Apple Corporation, being a huge international conglomerate, has empowered the individual to change the world.

Podcasts To Listen To: Scandal...Stan Lee's World

Stan Lee

Pop Culture Icon

I can not think of any other artist who has made the kind of pervasive and persistent impression on Pop Culture as comic book genius Stan Lee has.

The characters he created are enmeshed in the fabrics of our lives through varying media and an endless stream of branded product. From blockbuster commercial movie success to the Spider-Man pajamas my son adorns at bedtime, his mark has been left indelibly on our society and we are the better for it.

With this kind of generational, lightning in a bottle success comes a massive empire of riches and assets. Stan Lee had amassed the kind of wealth that most common working folk cannot even begin to wrap their heads around.

Having that kind of lucrative empire attached to the iconic nature of Stan’s illustrious career tends to bring people out of the woodwork day and night angling to secure some sort of benefit from Stan’s vast comic kingdom.

9 Things I Would Tell My 18-Year-Old Self

Inspiration Through Gratitude

Reflecting Back

In life, you have to suffer through challenges and failures but hopefully grow as a result from enduring them. There is plenty of advice being offered all around us when growing up, but when we are young, we are predisposed to often tuning it out.

While I have compiled here 9 nuggets of advice to relay to my 18-year-old self, this perspective can most likely only be learned over time and through actual life experience.

Putting aside the current limitations of time travel, if I was somehow able to bestow all of these suggestions to my 18-year-old self, I am not sure it would have made a bit of difference in my life. Words and suggestions can help guide and cajole, but life experience is indeed the ultimate teacher.

The #1 Keto Diet Mistake You Need To Avoid

Keto Diet

What Is Keto

The keto diet, short for ketogenic, is a dietary strategy that focuses on restricting carbs in favor of consuming high amounts of healthy fats and eating moderate amounts of protein.

There are varying methods and sub-strategies under the low-carb umbrella like modified keto, the carnivore diet, low-fat keto, and high-protein, although keto purist might argue against some of these as being methods that do not produce a constant state of ketosis.

Ketosis

Our bodies can reach a state of nutritional ketosis as a result of extended, restricted carbohydrate intake. We begin burning fat for fuel, instead of sugar from carbs, and begin producing ketones which can be a powerful fuel source for our bodies and brains.

When I am in ketosis I feel alert and clear-headed with a steady and sustainable source of energy. I initially came to the ketogenic lifestyle to shed a few extra pounds but I have stuck around with this strategy of eating to keep reaping the mental clarity and sustained energy benefits.
