Climbing gyms have become big business. Giant gyms are popping up all over the world, with bigger walls, more holds, and massive square footage - but what of the community? Is it being left behind in favor of selling memberships? Not necessarily. Long time climbers Josh Muller and Regan Kennedy own Bolder Climbing Community in Calgary, and through their branding and community focused efforts, they've built a thriving business that withstood the pandemic and still keeps them excited to climb. In this episode I sit down with Josh, gym manager Jordan Jasper, and photographer/videographer Nic Nolet to discuss the idea of community and what it means to each of them. In this episode we discuss: Why having “community” in the name is important. How a welcoming community draws people in. The role of mentors. Should gym mentorship extend to the outdoors? How gym layout and merch can help build community. How building community translates to good business. Find Bolder Climbing Community online. Bolder on Instagram. Josh on Instagram.

Momentum on climate action is unstoppable. Investors, businesses, and the public are demanding policymakers get serious about reducing emissions. Legislation from the U.S. and EU offers challenges and incentives for businesses worldwide. How will these proposed laws impact companies, and importantly, can they deliver on the promise of making tangible progress in the fight against climate change? Our latest episode of The Sidley Podcast grapples with those questions and many others. Join host and Sidley partner, Sam Gandhi, as he speaks with three of the firm's thought leaders on the subject — Nicolas Lockhart, Andrew Shoyer, and Brittany Bolen. Nic is a partner in Sidley's Geneva office and a member of the firm's Global Arbitration, Trade, and Advocacy practice. Andy co-leads Sidley's Global Arbitration, Trade, and Advocacy practice and is a partner in the firm's Washington, D.C. office.

On the show this week:Well done, we've made it through the first week of 2022! We celebrate with some chat about three kings, public holidays and friends who bring the gift of beer. Nic wonders whether he's old or if it's only the pandemic that's preventing him from clubbing, while Simon just wants to go to the pub with his mates. Thanks to a listener, Simon questions whether every kebab is really great after his forced introduction to Hawaiian style kebab, while Nic talks about his German family's reaction to a humble PBJ sandwich. We check in on the new German government and talk about the obvious fault lines in the new coalition that the German media seem so gleeful to exploit. Is the criticism really fair or is it just a case of a slow news week?To finish, we talk about government plans to improve the quality of food production, how that may impact the price of the average shop and how this connects to a new law that protects millions of chickens from being destroyed.

Shame is the ultimate form of self-limitation. It holds you back in ways you can't even imagine and takes the shine off your soul. The only way you'll ever become the person you were born to be is if you confront the sources of shame in your life.

It's the fear that we're not good enough." - Brene Brown “if you want to enjoy the rewards of being loved, you also have to submit to the mortifying ordeal of being known.” - Tim Kreider

Nic McKinley, the founder of the counter-trafficking organization DeliverFund, joined The Protectors Podcast ™ to talk about the important work they are doing to support law enforcement through direct intelligence support. About DeliverFund: DeliverFund was founded and is operated by a group of uniquely qualified and trained individuals. They have decades of experience from our careers in the CIA, NSA, Special Operations, and law enforcement, and leverage cutting-edge technology into the ultimate weapon against human trafficking. The traffickers have gone online, so follow them and track them down, using the same technologies that they're using against them.About Nic McKinley: As an Operative who served as a Country Chief for a Special Unit within the CIA, Nic witnessed not only the epidemic of child trafficking within illicit markets but also the unrealized opportunity to apply his understanding and training to influence this global crisis. As Nic began to work with experts to better understand the problem in the United States, he found it impossible to turn a blind eye. As a result, DeliverFund was officially established as a 501c3 in October 2014 and our counter human trafficking organization, focused on ending sex slavery in the United States got to work.Nic spent 11 years in US Special Operations as an Air Force Pararescueman prior to being recruited to the Central Intelligence Agency. Due to his highly specialized training and experience in both special and intelligence operations, Nic has a firm understanding about these illicit, illegal markets and has the highest levels of training to effectively combat them.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/theprotectors)

Dopiero niedawno „ciężka praca” stała się powodem do dumy, a nie wstydu z powodu braku talentu, finezji i, przede wszystkim, sprezzatury - Nassim TALEB Uwielbiam ten cytat. Jest genialny. I bardzo głęboko wnika we współczesną psychologię - czyli potrzebę ekspozycji, pokazania swojego cierpienia (jakie to do głębi chrześcijańskie) oraz szukania poklasku i akceptacji grupy - no i , co dziś najważniejsze, emocjonalnego ekshibicjonizmu w czasach, kiedy środki do celu (np. "przepracowywanie" swoich traum z psychoterapeutą czy bycie na diecie - tu wpisz sobie czy keto czy wege) stały się, same w sobie, celem. Oczywiście myk polega na tym, że kluczem do sprezzatury jest ciężka praca - ale ciężka praca którą ukrywasz a nie którą się chwalisz. Ale my dziś, rzekomo, żyjemy w czasach transparencji. Jeśli nie wiesz co oznacza transparencja - spiszę z wyjaśnieniem. Transparencja oznacza brak klasy, pretensjonalność, narcyzm i potrzebę przypodobania się. W skrócie - jest przeciwieństwem autonomii, tudzież osobistej władzy. A to właśnie autonomia, czyli budowanie i utrzymywanie władzy osobistej, jest tematem tegoż jakże wyczekiwanego wpisu. Wybitny amerykański kompozytor, dyrygent i pianista Leonard BERNSTEIN nauczał, że prawdziwy artystyczny performance składa się z TRZECH elementów: DECORO: czyli z ciężkiej pracy, treningów, wysiłku, często w pocie czoła oraz samotności. Idąc za FRISELLĄ i GROVEREM z poprzedniego wpisu - to jest faza przygotowywania do wygrywania. SPREZZATURA: to faza druga, czyli sztuka lekkości, nonszalancji, zainspirowanego działania, przepływu w skrócie. Jest ona, oczywiście, niemożliwa bez fazy DECORO. Czyli mamy tu paradoks, który paradoksem nie jest: ciężka, świadoma praca, tresura (nieładnie to ujmując), prowadzi do spontaniczności - o ile jej i sobie na to pozwolimy. Potem, jak uczył BERNSTEIN, następuje jeszcze faza trzecia i ostatnia, czyli: GRAZIA: czyli gracja, czyli światło wielkości i geniuszu, które to unosi się nad artystą, który przez fazę DECORO przeszedł do fazy SPREZZATURY. Mówiąc inaczej, metaforą: jeśli SUKCES jest górą, DECORO to 9/10 góry, z jej podstawą włącznie, SPREZZATURA to wierzchołek, czyli jej szczyt a GRAZIA to słońce, które nad tym wierzchołkiem się unosi. Czyli: DECORO prowadzi do SPREZZATURY a SPREZZATURA rodzi GRAZIE. DECORO bez SPREZZATURY to wyrywanie sobie zębów. SPREZZATURA bez DECORO to pewna klęska. DECORO plus SPREZZATURA równa się GRACJA - bo ostatnia rzecz której chcesz, jeśli mieszkać w krainie martyrologii i samoudręczenia. Mistrz ciężkiego uderzenia w lekkim stylu, Pan Charlie WATTS, the ROLLING STONES (foto: NYTimes.com) Pamiętam jeszcze czasy, to było ze 20-25 lat temu, kiedy nasza wybitna wtedy reprezentacja piłki nożnej biła kolejne rekordy w minutach bez strzelonego gola. Któryś z dziennikarzy miesięcznika CKM napisał wtedy dowcipnie, że trudno w sumie ich za to winić, bo nie każdy dobrze czuje się z piłką, czyli okrągłym przedmiotem którego nie da się ani położyć ani postawić. Jednak nawet wtedy nie brakowało chłopakom bojowości w znajdowaniu kolejnych wymówek ich chujowej gry oraz - co bardzo ważne kiedy jesteś przegrywem - bezwzględnego i bezwarunkowego poczucia wyższości moralnej - niezależnie od okoliczności. Tak się bowiem dziwnie na tym świecie dzieje, że (o czym wspominałem we wcześniejszych materiałach) naszym życiem rządzi słowo na S - i nie chodzi tutaj o SEKS, tylko o STATUS. Wszyscy bowiem jesteśmy w biznesie zwiększania tudzież przynajmniej utrzymywania naszego statusu. Nic nie poradzisz - stadne z nas zwierzęta. Znawcy tematu STATUSU, w tym autor Will STORR wyróżniają w temacie STATUSU trzy rodzaje gier: Gry DOMINACJI Gry NIESKAZITELNOŚCI i Gry SUKCESU W grach DOMINACJI twój status opiera się głownie na budzeniu STRACHU czy RESPEKTU. Przykładem jest tu np. kariera w mafii [w "majfii" jak mawiał jeden z bohaterów książki "Chłopcy z ferajny"] czy jednostkach specjalnych.
Nic Novicki, actor, director and stand-up comedian, joins the program to discuss why he has decided to become a global advisor for Billion Strong, as well as the Easterseals Disability Film Challenge.

We always feel great when we go above and beyond as teachers, but we know--especially right now--that going above and beyond is not always feasible. Sometimes--oftentimes--we need to go back to the basics. Listen to this episode from the archives as Nic talks about the building blocks of a good curriculum, and how she helps students develop the basic skills that will set them up for future success.

The wonderful Nic Rouleau, Broadway's record-setting Elder Price in The Book of Mormon, joins David on this episode to share his love of the magical world of Disney. Nic is a true Disney fan--he shares that it was the music from the Disney movies that truly was his gateway into loving the brand--and discusses how watching "The Little Mermaid," "Hercules," and, his favorite "A Goofy Movie" as a kid cemented his love for the Mouse. As a California native, Nic visited Disneyland in his youth, but when he was around 10 years old he visited Walt Disney World for the first time and it was a game-changer. He and David discuss the coincidence of playing a role on Broadway that is equally obsessed with the Orlando Park, and why the Parks are such a magical place to visit. Nic shares his experience of playing Woody from "Toy Story" on The Disney Cruise Line, a character he loved, and continues to love--and how he was introduced to Pin Trading while at sea--while also being "friends" with Prince Phillip. Listen as Nic discusses a perfect day at Walt Disney World, as well as his love for Chip & Dale, Marie from "The Aristocats," Space Mountain, "Pete's Dragon," and Expedition Everest. After Nic reveals a traumatic experience he had once at the Disneyland Resort, he and David play "Two by Two: Disney Edition," a game where David gives a clue referring to a famous pair of Disney characters, and Nic has to identify them.

We couldn't let the year end without one final Marvel Monday episode of Breakfast All Day. Christy and Nic have a lengthy discussion about “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which we both loved — so it's kinda like she made her kid do work over winter break, but not really. We talk about how nuts our theater went at the many revelations, the interplay between the various characters, the film's notions about the possibility of rehabilitation in a world of good vs. evil, Aunt May‘s fate, how terrifying Willem Dafoe is, whether “No Way Home” should be a contender for the best-picture Oscar and the many Easter eggs along the way. Thanks so much for supporting our little Marvel series — we've had so much fun doing it, and we hope we've brought you a little joy this year. Here's to a happier and healthier 2022!
In this episode from early in 2021, Nic welcomes Daniel Bryant, an art teacher from Charleston, South Carolina. Daniel explains how and why he always chooses joy, and how that shapes his teaching and his worldview. Listen as he and Nic discuss joy, reconciliation, and the projects he develops for his students.
