We live in such a fractured society, that only seems to be getting more so. Research shows that the way people change their minds about ideas and the way they shift their worldview to include others is through stories and relationships – not shame or statistics. In service to that idea, we run a series on YouTube called ‘Welcome to My World’. It’s an interview show where I get to talk to fascinating folks from all walks of life twice a week about something in their lives the rest of us should know more about. I’ve chatted about Japanese gaming culture, the universal law of attraction, what it means to be a ghostwriter, and more. Find the series on our youtube channel. I’ll see you there.
