Episode 031: Lauren Sesselmann - The Woman Behind the Cleats

May 25, 2017
00:0000:00

Lauren Sesselmann @lsesselmann is a defender for the Canadian national soccer team and plays in the new NWSL (National Woman's Soccer League). She won a bronze medal in the 2012 Olympics and a gold medal in the 2011 Pan-America Games at Guadalajara. 

 
Lauren is more than just a hard-working athlete. She is a fitness instructor (just releasing her second Fit as a Pro program), a mentor - focusing on helping younger girl athletes find success in sports, a growing influencer via social media, an actress, and TV host. 
 
Soccer is the most prolific sport around the world and reaching new heights in North America. But woman's soccer, though growing rapidly, is still stuck with a negative stigma in the quality of play. The bus and Lauren challenge this notion while exploring woman's sports science and injury recovery compared to men's (such as ACL tears are greater during menstrual cycles). 
 
This episode not only explores Lauren's injuries and experiences as a woman in sports, it also takes a look into her depression and coinciding new confidence and creativity as she approaches retirement. Lauren's passion is mentoring and we also talk about everything from racism and sexism to nutrition, dating, social media, acting, and her side projects. 
 
Lauren was one of the most fun people we've had in the studio thus far. She is intelligent, motivational, hard-working, insightful, funny, and has no problem pointing out the bus driver being in love. You're going to absolutely love this show. 
 
This episode we learned some of the same struggles we had from a previous Olympic hopeful, Jared Firestone. Take a look at his episode here if you'd like to listen to another sports topic.

Episode 027: Zach Weinberg - The Evolution of Media in Big Music and the Marleys

April 28, 2017
00:0000:00

The Bus talks with Zach WeinbergHead of New Media at Tuff Gong Worldwide - Ziggy Marley's record label. Music is evolving rapidly as social media and new streaming tools converge... and Zach is sitting at the forefront of this evolution. Besides new media, Zach is also one of the historians for the Marley estate and their licenses and works with major industry leaders like Universal Music, WME, and others. 

 "Music is a marketing tool," in this day and age and this leaves many questions about where the industry is headed, for artists, consumers, and marketers alike. Such questions as: How will music evolve and survive in the day of low-cost streaming? How do we find new fans through rapid changing market preferences? What are technologies coming out to disrupt the market?

There is another battle going on though; the battle between art and making that art seen by the world. So how do you merge raw talent with what the market wants - without removing their artistic integrity? These are just a few of the many questions we ponder in this episode. 

As with all of our guests - we explore Zach's love and interest in his occupation and how he reached his current role. This bus ride also explores the potential for A.I in the music industry. As a coup de grace to an incredible episode... Zach gives us some historic and detailed cognizance into the rise of Bob Marley. 

This is an interesting take on the social + marketing side of music.  We also had a conversation with Joe Silberzweig, marketing manager for Live Nation and festival promoter extraordinaire that you can check out if you enjoyed this conversation.

Episode 026: Michael Hinden on Botany, Buds, and Education

April 22, 2017
00:0000:00

Michael Hinden took a chance and moved out to California during the medical marijuana gold rush. He sought after his passion for botany and plants and left behind a job in his father's law firm. 

Michael and his company Private Stock Veganics are in a pursuit to provide the highest grade cannabis-derived from truly natural and organic techniques. He's made a brand that's respected for its quality above all else. They are on a mission in order to bring the marijuana industry back to a more natural approach to raising their plants. 

This episode isn't just about plants. The boys cover an array of topics from education, technologies, medicine, mimicking aspects of homo sapiens, as well how to return to cohesion between humans and animals.

Looking for another show about the marijuana business or drug politics? We had a conversation with Danny Perdeck (CEO of Green Roads World) talking the growing CBD and Marijuana industries.

Episode 025: Jared Firestone - Sacrifice

April 18, 2017
00:0000:00

Jared Firestone,@jfireskeleton, is an ex-collegiate track athlete attempting to break into the ranks of the U.S. Skeleton and Bobsled teams.  He recently just returned from the U.S. Nationals and is currently preparing for training sessions with the Elite Development Group in Latvia and Norway.

 

Jared ran track at Tulane and after college, he wasn't willing to give up on his athletic dreams. After watching skeleton one T.V. one day, he took a leap of faith to jump-start his career. 

 

As with many of our guests, Jared has had to show extreme determination, risk, and sacrifice to make the impossible - possible. He has had to forgo his law career and has had difficulty finding a stable job that will support him while he trains. And beyond the potential for failure, skeleton is a dangerous sport. To Jared, the risk is worth the reward.

 

This episode explores the psyche of a strong-willed and determined young man not willing to accept mediocrity. We also talk skeleton training techniques, the potential of athletes as influencers in the 21st century, and intangibles of success. 

 

Looking for another show about athletics? Our conversation with Wes Byrum – Life After Sports, explores difficulties athletes have when they are finished.

Episode 019: Darryll Fish - The Power of Awareness

March 1, 2017
00:0000:00

Darryll Fish aka DFish (@darryllfish) is a 31-year-old professional poker player known not only for his skills at the tables but his shrewd social awareness and community building. He spends his time traveling the world playing both tournaments and cash games.

 

Some of his career highlights include a WSOP Circuit victory in Palm Beach Florida, 2nd place at WPT Montreal, and 3rdplace in the 2013 WSOP $5,000 bracelet event. He is sponsored by Seminole Hard Rock and has recently found himself doing commentary for live stream play-by-play.  

 

His experience playing a game that focuses on the emotions and nuances of his opponents has opened up awareness in other areas of his life (more on this in the show).  Darryll can elegantly connect and engage people from different walks of life inconsequential conversation.

 

This episode becomes a deeply meaningful conversation that explores the ego (such as Darryll’s poker ego) and different forms of social connection. We do a lot of critical analysis on the generational divide between millennials and their parents while discussing those different mindsets and searching through solutions to work out the differences. 

 

Highlights from this episode include Darryll’s recent poker trip to Australia, resolving deep-rooted pain from childhood, and some tricks for setting intentions. 

 

You can see one of Darryll’s most important poker hands at his 2nd place WPT Montreal finish here.

 

This is our second episode featuring a professional poker player and there were some interesting similarities and differences between the conversation with Adam Levy and Darryl.
