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's summer rerun is a look at suffocating negativity. For me and my board, especially this time of year, it is easy to get caught up in the stress of the moment and go really negative. This week's episode will help all of us avoid that trap!

This week's summer rerun is a look back at personality profiling. This is by far the most downloaded episode of my 95-episode streak, so clearly people resonate with the information. When you're done listening to this, pick up a copy of Gretchen Rubin's "The Four Tendencies." It is the perfect accompaniment to this...

If you are a Patreon supporter, you already know that I lost my voice this past week. As you can tell, it's really bad, so I'm turning to my backup host for the intro and outro. This week's topic covers many of the things you need to be aware of in the interview process. It's a mashup of summer rerun and new...

This week is our first week of "summer reruns" so I wanted to start with my most popular episode: Tools. I've taken the original "Tools" episode and a "Tools 2" episode and edited them together. I hope this brings you value!
