This week we are joined by Barry Lam (Professor of Philosophy at Vassar College and host of HiPhi Nation) to discuss Terry Gilliam's manic time travel science fiction masterpiece, 12 Monkeys! We explore how the film manifests the philosopher David Lewis's theory of time travel, while also depicting the madness of foreknowledge and the futility of attempting to change what's already happened. We discuss the possibility of closed causal loops, the challenges of political activism, pandemic tie-ins, and how the film uses Brad Pitt as a spokesperson for Gen-X dissatisfaction (something he would more famously go on to embody in Fight Club a few years later). So climb aboard this nightmare train to madness and keep an eye out for hamste

What is the liability of adding special and personal items to your short-term rental? Make sure your manager takes special note of items that may inadvertently get taken or damaged. Try not to be accusatory if something happens, chalk some of it to the cost of doing business, things will happen. Purchase extra items that may wear over time or break easily (dishes, towels, linens). Matt talks about the major platforms and some tips on how to optimize them. Airbnb- Lower fees than most, good protections, flexible scheduling, streamlined platform. VRBO/Find Home Away- Not as many protections, good visibility, well known, more expensive than others, different audience (Gen X or older). Consider using both and be as detailed in your setup, include all the amenities that you have, and check every box that applies! Re-visit the platforms every few weeks to make sure there are no new options or changes to optimize your listing. Get great photos, pay a photographer, it will be one of your best investments. Get some video and show off all the amenities available. Highlight showpieces of your property and focus on lifestyle, what is your ‘X factor'? Get photos of amenities, appliances, special features, details, details, details! Consider adding specifics of your unit title use keywords such as; pool, ground floor, king bed, 10 minutes to the ski resort, etc… Pricing: Know your market, price high for 1–2-night stays, discount for multiple nights stay.

One of the things Debbie is starting to think about is where and how she and her husband Sam might want to live as they get older - a lot older than their current 70. Like many Boomers, they are repelled by the idea of a retirement community.This week on the podcast she turns to Skylar Skikos to learn about new options. Skylar, 40, is a philosopher at heart and a financier by trade. He's a real estate developer and investor who specializes in hospitality and senior care and he's Chief Development Officer of Modern Elder Academy in Baja, MX. You've heard Debbie talk before about MEA, the world's first midlife wisdom school. Skylar is fascinated with how to create places that help people flourish, particularly as they age. He thinks there's something missing from age-segregated communities and Debbie couldn't agree more. She wants to run screaming when she sees glossy ads for age 55+ retirement communities like The Villages in Florida because... who wants to live only with old people where the focus is solely on recreation and having fun?This episode is her first attempt to start unpacking the topic of where and how older people can live where they can be part of a mixed-age community, still contributing and living productively, and avoid the loneliness and isolation that many of us associate with retirement communities. Debbie and Skylar talk about several alternatives. One is intergenerational housing that mixes age groups. A number of intergenerational developments are underway right now in different parts of the U.S. They also talk about something called Regenerative Communities, a concept being pioneered by MEA. Skylar joined MEA to help them develop a collection of Regenerative Communities, each of which will include mixed-age residents, a midlife wisdom school where you explore how to grow and thrive in the latter stages of life, and a surrounding regenerative farm. The first Regenerative Community being developed in the U.S. is outside Sante Fe, NM. Debbie and Sam are so intrigued with this concept and are hoping that MEA will turn its sights towards the East Coast, which is closer to home and family for them. MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE OR USEFUL: Skylar Skikos on LinkedInNavigating the Youth-Midlife Divide: Musings Approaching a 40th Birthday by Skylar Skikos (Wisdom Well, Nov. 2, 2021)Modern Elder AcademyMEA | Regenerative CommunitiesDon't Mind the Gap in Intergenerational Housing by Karrie Jacobs (New York Times, Sept. 2, 2021)New Model of Active  Adult Senior Living Is Coming to the Austin Area  (Cantina)Cantina CommunityRight Place, Right Time: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Home for the Second Half of Life by Ryan Frederick (‎Johns Hopkins University Press 2021)The Villages (Your Retirement Adventure Starts Here)Public philosopher Tom MorrisSerenbe (a wellness community near Atlanta) NOTE FROM DEBBIEIf you've been enjoying the podcast, please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts.

In this episode Chris interviews alumni WFW guest Michelle Nezat about the challenges of changing lanes in life.  (Note: We use the term "Gen X" in this podcast which refers to the generation ages 40-55.) Show Notes & Links: -When we feel the "nudge" toward changing lanes we need to seek God's voice for guidance. -First step: consider the challenges of change: who is affected? Talk to the people in your circle and find out how change will affect them. -Am I really hearing the voice of God leading me? Pray about the motivations involved in the voices you hear.  -Michelle's biggest lesson: Don't stay longer in your present lane because you feel you're irreplaceable.  -Good advice to the person who replaces you: You are not filling "my" shoes. God gave you your own pair of shoes.  -God's plans for us aren't always revealed to us from beginning to end before He asks us to step out into something new. Keys to hearing God's voice: -The enemy is an accuser. God's voice is not.  -The enemy is a liar. Make sure you stay in God's word and pray to detect any lies you might be hearing. -Michelle's biggest tip for changing lanes. Don't miss this!

The Connected Yoga Teacher Podcast 244: Create & Share Audio Recordings with Claire Villarreal   Description: The pandemic has forced most yoga teachers to teach yoga online, but a less common alternative (or addition!) to videos is audio recordings. A lot of yoga teachers think doing audio recordings is difficult, but this isn't the case. Claire Villarreal has a wealth of experience in creating audio recordings, and she shares all her expertise on this episode.   Claire works to adapt traditional Buddhist teachings for the demands of modern life, particularly focusing on guided meditations. She began meditating daily in 1997 in the Theravada and Vajrayāna traditions, and she has traveled to study and meditate in traditional settings around the world. She is the former Programs Director for Dawn Mountain Center for Tibetan Buddhism and former board member for Compassionate Houston. Currently, Claire contributes to a GenX dharma teachers community, and she is funded by the Hemera Foundation to write and podcast about what Tibetan teachings on reincarnation can teach us about living well.   Claire explains how you can record good quality audio using only your phone and a set of earbuds, as well as the software you can use to transcribe a meditation, how to edit and store your audio, what format to save it in and more technical details. This episode is for you if you want to create audio recordings for your students to take home or as a freebie to build your email list - it is a quick and easy starting place to explore if audio recordings are the right fit for your yoga business.   Key Takeaways: [4:28] Shannon introduces her guest for this episode - Claire Villarreal. [7:14] Shannon gives a shoutout to Schedulicity. [11:55] What does Claire do and who does she do it for? [13:01] A lot of people think that creating audio recordings is too difficult, but it's not! [14:01] What is the quickest way to get started doing audio recording with our phones?

[17:36] What is the best way to edit audio to make it sound good? [20:31] Shannon pops in with an update on the episode on closed captions for Zoom with Landon Stacy and to talk about the transcription tool she uses. [24:07] What does Claire recommend doing with the transcript of your audio recording? [26:03] Claire recommends recording a live session or training you are doing and using the transcript of that as a starting point for a script you can read. [26:56] Claire shares some tips around where to record. [28:40] Claire talks about her process of recording and what she does after she has recorded her audio. [30:54] Tip: If possible, record in a wav format rather than mp3 format. [33:27] Claire makes a note about recording directly to your computer vs. to your phone and transferring to the computer. [35:57] Audacity is a good option for audio editing software that you can use to clean up the audio recording.

But once you have your setup the way you want it, it's pretty easy to just go back in and record another episode."   "You have to figure out the right relationship between the microphone and your mouth."   "If possible, it's great to record in a wav format instead of MP3."   "Experimentation is the heart of finding your audio sound."   "How you're feeling comes across so clearly in your voice."   "I think it is better to put stuff out there and get feedback and grow than to hold back because you think you're not good enough."

Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

Public radio personality, podcaster and author John Moe (Wits, Hilarious World of Depression, The Depresh Mode), joins the show to discuss his decision to talk openly about mental health, shifting from a public radio voice to his own voice and how it coincided with success, battling depression, Gen X's fear of being vaporized in an inevitable nuclear war, his childhood, his father's alcoholism, losing his brother to suicide in 2007, hating Don Henley, OCD, forgetting what he felt shame about more. We also took your questions, and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and Hey Go F*ck Yourself.
