  • 121: Lucas Cullen, founder of Struggle Creates Strength, on dark times, pushing outside one's comfort zone ad figuring out one's purpose

    Jul 16 2021
    Lucas Cullen is the founder of Struggle Creates Strength, a mental health advocacy organization based in British Columbia, Canada. He’s also a podcaster, a traveler and a former semi-pro hockey player. In this conversation, Lucas and I talk about the power of story, of sharing our stories vulnerably and courageously and even publicly, so that they can help others. He shares his own story of mental health struggles as a teen and young adult coming up in the hyper-masculine culture of competitive ice hockey. We talk about the rocky and sometimes dark road that ultimately led Lucas to launch Struggle Creates Strength. We also talk about joy and life purpose. Among other things. More at humanitou.com. ----MORE---- Humanitou is created, produced and hosted by Adam Williams.

  • 120: James McCrae, poet, meme artist and author of Sh#t Your Ego Says, on ayahuasca, karma and the art of our times

    Jul 1 2021
    James McCrae is a poet, a meme artist, and the author of the book, Sh#t Your Ego Says. Naturally, this conversation dives into James' thoughts on the ego. We also talk about karma, existential crisis and ayahuasca, poetry and meme artistry, which James is convinced is the most potent and powerful art form of our times. In fact, he has a new book coming out through Thought Catalog later this year that just might be the first in the world to combine poetry and meme art in the way that he does. We talk about that and all the things, the stories that weave along James’ road from an idyllic childhood in tiny-town Minnesota to getting washed out of New York City on his first attempt to live there, and then seeking refuge on the Puerto Rican island of Culebra. We talk about James’ “dark night of the soul” experience while on Culebra, a sort of existential crisis, and how it was pivotal to his spiritual and creative voice, the one he’s publicly known for now. Among other things. More at huma

  • 119: Yassine Diboun, Ultramarathon Trail Runner, on addiction & sobriety, DEI & racism, the power of community & forest bathing

    Jun 16 2021
    Yassine Diboun is a professional ultramarathon trail runner, coach and entrepreneur (Wy'east Wolfpack) in Portland, Ore. He's also nearly 17 years sober. In this conversation, we talk about Yassine's story of addiction, which started at a really early age. And we talk about sobriety. Serious topics no doubt. But we have some good laughs along the way too. We also talk about Yassine's transformation from, as he tells it, spiritual bankruptcy to spiritual awakening, and his becoming a pro athlete and a community leader, on the trail and off. Among other things, like diversity in the outdoors and the Japanese concept of shin-rin yoku ("forest bathing"). More at humanitou.com. ----MORE---- Humanitou is created, produced and hosted by Adam Williams.
