Relentlessly Human Tour: Info Sheet

When everything is awful, the best we can do is love each other. 

When it’s happening: Nov. 17, 2021-Nov. 17, 2022

What it is: Podcast, YouTube Series, Blog, possibly a book with photos, and eventually a movement

History & Inspiration: This began in conversation with Matt Crouch on the Big Island of Hawaii, and out of a desire to reconnect in person with the people we’ve missed because of the pandemic and the way Life has scattered us. 

We’ve been locked down, separated, disconnected, and often scared and lonely. We lost deep important connections with friends and family--the connections at the root of our humanity. 

As I made a list of who I wanted to see and hug, I realized most of my friends are artists. It struck me that this tour and its public-facing components could be a fitting way to honor the art, artists, and creativity that helped us all through the pandemic. (And will probably continue to help us through the next however many years we will be dealing with this disease.)

This tour’s public-facing components are a podcast, video series (YouTube and IGTV), and written blog, with the ultimate goal of creating a movement of radical acceptance, love, and kindness towards our fellow humans.


How you can support: When possible, I am traveling in my 2008 Toyota RAV4 that has almost 200,000 miles on it already and sleeping on friends’ couches. I travel with my dog, Oakley.

This week is different from my usual short, pithy, show, as I indulge in a longer conversation with Isabel Hundt about emotional health. We talk about how to protect yourself as an empath, what our purpose is as nonprofit leaders, and even how to recenter and reclaim your emotional space in the middle of a typical...

I don't know about you, but I can sometimes be hot-headed. When someone says or does something that pushes my buttons, I have a tendency to react (poorly) rather than to respond (thoughtfully). In a recent improv workshop I learned how to listen to others and then the three questions to ask myself before I respond to...

The benefits of strategic partnerships far outweigh the potential downfalls. This week I talk about the best practices around building strategic partnerships and how I spotted an opportunity in disguise.

Activism took center stage at the recent Oscar awards, which is thrilling for this nonprofit leader. Then came the missed opportunity of all missed opportunities, and what could have been a soaring moment for our nonprofit community left the audience confused about where to park their majestic high horse. Here's what we...
