Far Out With Faust (FOWF)
Rewriting Traumatic Code to Optimize Performance | Dr. Don Wood

Far Out With Faust (FOWF)

On this episode of the Far Out with Faust podcast, we're delving into the necessity of exposing and resolving dysfunctional programming caused by childhood trauma to achieve peak performance, stress relief, and happiness. Dr. Don Wood, creator of the Inspired Performance Method, is a psychologist who applies the principles of neuroscience to transform destructive thought patterns and optimize performance on a cellular level. Dr. Wood was inspired to continue his education to discover whether he could facilitate the recovery of his wife and daughter from autoimmune disorders. He's written two books: You Must Be Out of Your Mind, and Emotional Concussions.He tells Faust that before any progress can be made, we need to understand that a person's “atmospheric conditions” are responsible for making us who we are. Hint: it's got nothing to do with the weather outside.Learn how to determine what state you're in (it's not a geography lesson), and how this colors your worldview in ways you may not even be conscious of. We're getting into the undeniable relationship between our emotions and mental and physical well being, and how the “code” our brains write can be hazardous to our health. Stay tuned to hear Dr. Wood's hypothesis on how this ties into your genetics — it will change the way you look at sickness and chronic disease.Find out about glitches — and how they're preventing you from reaching your potential.In several revealing moments, Faust goes “far back,” recounting how he's been able to overcome much of the painful programming from his childhood.Wood's methods have led him to become a respected authority in the world of elite sports training. Hear his inspiring accounts of working with professional athletes — including Kenyan marathon runner Marco Cheseto, a world record holding double amputee, Spartan champion and special forces green beret Rob Killian, and golf's long drive champion Tim Burke.Learn exactly what it means (scientifically speaking) to be “in the zone,” and how Wood coaches these athletes to perform at levels their competitors can't touch.It wouldn't be Far Out if we didn't bring it all back to the infinite wisdom of the universe, and the perfect beauty of nature, in the end.Learn more about Dr. Don Wood:https://www.inspiredperformanceinstitute.com/Connect on:YouTube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTKWCHeUmPZSqkvuRTblajAFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/inspiredperformanceinstituteTwitter:https://twitter.com/inspiredperfor2Order his books:https://smile.amazon.com/You-Must-Out-Your-Mind/dp/1387571338/ref=pd_bxgy_img_1/131-7279873-6195132?pd_rd_w=YBZX8&pf_rd_p=c64372fa-c41c-422e-990d-9e034f73989b&pf_rd_r=MZ9VBGPFDKVRQ59FY18X&pd_rd_r=c576ac69-fe57-458f-8093-30e90fb9bd96&pd_rd_wg=tbVXf&pd_rd_i=1387571338&psc=1https://smile.amazon.com/Emotional-Concussions-Understanding-Experiences-Throughout/dp/0578679108/ref=pd_bxgy_img_1/131-7279873-6195132?pd_rd_w=SfdNM&pf_rd_p=c64372fa-c41c-422e-990d-9e034f73989b&pf_rd_r=J7143ZBP40Z6WQN9SNTA&pd_rd_r=7a09c32f-db0d-4173-a4e8-7404d79786d1&pd_rd_wg=PXdpM&pd_rd_i=0578679108&psc=1

After three years of reporting out stories that originated on Reddit, the WBUR podcast https://www.wbur.org/podcasts/endlessthread (Endless Thread) parted ways with the social app this year, and started asking, "What else can we say about the internet?" "Follow Friday is a great example of how there's so much out there, and we felt like we had more work to do," says Endless Thread co-host Amory Sivertson. "So that's where we are now, telling stories that paint a broader picture of our online interactions and the communities that are formed." And most recently, Amory and her co-host Ben Brock Johnson have been tackling the history of some of the internet's greatest memes, including Rickrolling, Scumbag Steve, and "Woman Yelling At Cat." "A lot of times the image kind of speaks for itself, or at least it brings a vibe that — as long as people put a caption on it — is understandable to you, you can enjoy it and you can pass it on," Ben says. "But there are multiple layers to memes." Today on Follow Friday, Amory and Ben recommend four of their favorite accounts from across the internet: A https://www.youtube.com/c/cnliziqi/videos (cinematic and pastoral YouTube channel) about food in western China; a curated and approachable https://twitter.com/womensart1/ (collection of women's art) on Twitter; a https://twitter.com/kenyatta (pragmatic meme expert) who's making the internet a better place; and a https://www.instagram.com/sheldricktrust/ (Kenyan nonprofit) protecting elephants, rhinos and more.

She hopes to provide a safe place of support, to celebrate the women athletes as people, provide legal aid and mentoring through the new Program. Many women from around the sports world have offered help and support and we are there behind her too.  Womens Athletic Alliance founderFollow her here“The women deserve better.

Phil Wall is an award-winning filmmaker who has written, produced, directed, filmed, and edited three feature documentaries, and is currently in post-production on his fourth. A coach's son, Wall played for his dad at Roanoke Catholic High School and traces his filmmaking journey back to creating highlight videos for his team's championship seasons. He lives in Brooklyn, NY, where he works on independent and commercial narrative content.   Inspiration for The Standard (2:45) The Standard is a feature-length documentary about a 48-hour endurance challenge hosted by special forces combat veterans. Anyone can sign up to participate, but very few finish. GoRuck, a company that makes military-grade bags, apparel, and more, created the event to mimic combat situations and test their products.  Phil had worked on some early marketing videos for the company and participated in one of their 12-hour overnight challenges. Most participants finish this overnight challenge because it's centered on team building, but it was one of the most physically rigorous activities Phil, a longtime athlete, had ever done.  GoRuck ramped up their events a few years later and created their 48-hour challenge, a condensed version of the special forces assessment and selection criteria.   Takeaways From Filming (9:55) Both the participants and the cadre hosting the event enter an agreement: participants train and show up ready to do whatever the cadre tells them to; meanwhile, the cadre's job is to urge them to quit. They target the ones falling behind and give them special attention to convince them to quit, but a switch flips as soon as they do. The attitude turns to one of encouragement for how far they made.  It becomes clear their cadre are playing a role: one that's in indirect conflict with what they actually want. It's that conflict that inspired Phil to film The Standard. Whoever is out in front is winning, and the cadre capitalizes on that to make you feel like you don't belong. But the real standard is not quitting.  You can be the weakest link or lowest common denominator, but you might be the strongest in the next iteration. So it becomes getting to that next thing by redefining your role as needed and supporting those working around you. Recognizing when you're the weakest is invaluable and talking it out with who you're working with is the key to taking that next step forward. Filming The Book Keepers (18:20) Phil's recent documentary, The Book Keepers, is filmed from Phil's perspective. It follows his dad as he travels the country to promote Phil's mom, Carol Wall's, first book after her death. She received a book contract in 2010 for her memoir, Mr. Owita's Guide to Gardening, about her experience with breast cancer and how that coincided with a friendship she developed with a Kenyan gardener.  The book was released in 2014, but her cancer had returned during the final months of editing. She died in December of 2014, just one week before her book was named in the Top 10 of the Year.  Due to her illness, Random House canceled many promotional events and interviews, and she could never properly advocate for her story. So, Phil's dad began attending events on her behalf after her death.  For Phil and his family, it was a journey of loss many others could relate to, and The Book Keepers grew out of the need to capture that power of emotion. Storytelling was a way for not just Phil to heal but his family and his audience as well. The film premiered at the Austin Film Festival in August 2020 and won both the Jury Prize and Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature. What you'll learn in this episode: The inspiration behind Phil Wall's feature documentary, The Standard.  What Phil took away from filming.  Background on Phil's mom, Carol, and her memoir, Mr. Owita's Guide to Gardening. How his dad's journey to promote the memoir after his mother's death inspired his film The Book Keepers..

Greg interviews Lindsay Kiptiness, the Kenyan Ambassador to Thailand. Ambassador Kiptiness begins by introducing himself and explains his responsibilities as ambassador to Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Burma. He explains his unfortunate arrival during COVID times, and his desire to really explore Thailand when it fully re-opens. The Kenyan healthcare system is behind Thailand's, but he notes that Nairobi did serve as the center of COVID treatment for UN officials.  Greg asks the Ambassador about Kenyan products, and the Ambassador regales Greg with pitches for Kenyan coffee and Kenyan purple tea. No, that's not a typo, and the Ambassador assures us it is the best tea in the world. :)  The conversation continues on to cover cultural misconceptions, the fickle nature of the global community in times of crisis, and the expatriate Kenyan (and African communities) in Thailand, which is growing, and the Thai community in Kenya, which unfortunately is not. Greg and the Ambassador discuss the reasons for this, and the Ambassador contends there is simply not enough information about Kenya and Africa in Thailand. In fact, the Ambassador makes the point that Greg has made many times on the podcast: all expats are to some extent ambassadors for their home country, and Mr. Kiptiness encourages all Kenyans in Thailand to do their best to promote their home country.  Don't forget that Patrons get the ad-free version of the show as well as swag and other perks.
