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 falls smack in the middle of the busiest week of my year, so it's only fitting that I run the episode about how to prepare for your busy season. Remember, self-care at this time is not selfish. It is critical to your success as a leader, so don't slack on it. Enjoy the show!

Yes, this is episode 100 of the podcast, and it is *not* a "very special episode." It got way too close to Festival time for me to do that. But I will tell you, I'm planning something cool for the 2 year anniversary of the podcast in early September, so keep your ears open! In the meantime, enjoy this summer rerun about...

Next up in our summer reruns series is an interview I did with financial coach, Melissa Thomas. She had great insight as to why our individual donors are so valuable to our organizations--even beyond their financial gifts. Enjoy!

This week's summer rerun is about boundaries. You know you need them, but it can be so hard to maintain them. In this episode I interviewed Jen Moff, a certified relationship coach, about boundaries--why they are important, why people encroach on them, and how to maintain them. Please share this with a friend who...
