Episode 019: Darryll Fish - The Power of Awareness

March 1, 2017

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.

Episode 018 : Joe Skipper - Crickets and Other Alternative Protein Sources

February 21, 2017
Sustainability. Sustainability. Sustainability. 
 
It's a topic that is on the tip of many tongues and debated
across an array of industries, especially on buses.
 
The real question, though, one that we often forget to ask. 
What can I personally do, engender a sustainable planet?
 
This week's guest Joseph Skipper - who also goes by the nickname
Cricket Guy - literally quit his job one day to farm Crickets.
His reasoning? A deep inner yearning to farm coupled with a 
desire to create a viable impact on our planet. He is now owner of Seginus Farms @seginusfarms, first urban cricket farm in Florida devoted exclusively to raising human-grade entomological products
 
Joe recognized that crickets are a sustainable and healthy
source of protein just now starting to be eaten in
The United States. Outside of the U.S. crickets are eaten by billions of people
as both a major source of protein and a delicacy. He wants
to capitalize on a potentially huge growing market while also creating
a positive environmental impact.
 
In this episode, we talk all things bugs. Heck, we even eat
a few on air. Joe talks insect eating regulations, their 
diet, and his experience at the Insect Eating Convention
in Detroit. Among other things - this conversation obviously
becomes a great one about nutritional hacking. 
 
You can find out more @seginusfarms and you can also purchase
the prized Moringa Cricket Power Mix (which we love and use) to make Cricket Brownies.
 
Here is a good article to learn about the power of cricket protein or visit Grubbly Farms the company from Forbes 30 under 30 positively 
impacting the chicken feed industry.
 
Since we are on a role here with alternative nutrition and medicine.
Our most recent conversation with Danny Perdeck, Owner of Green Roads
World explores how CBD oil provides health hacks.

Episode 016: Storm McGowan - Acid, Salt, Fat and the Chef Collab

February 14, 2017

Michael McGowan a.k.a. Storm. is a young entrepreneur and classically trained chef in the culinary capital of New York City.

Storm graduated top of his class at one of the top culinary schools in New York. He has worked at famed Michelin star restaurants, is a co-founder of @gophercase, and has his own baking company with his fiance Bake Shop 314. All by the ripe age of 27 years old.

This is a very special episode to us as we tried something a little bit different to share with you guys.

We joined up with Storm and his fiance to each create an elaborate dish together one evening, and then met in the studio the next day to talk about the meals, everything from the food prep to the taste, techniques, and cooking mindset.

Besides the meals, we also talk about the highly competitive and cutthroat world that is food in NYC. Storm answers all the questions about sourcing great produce and teaches us some tricks for the gourmet kitchen. There is no shortage of nutrition talk for those millennials working on their diet. 

Get your knives ready (but keep them tucked in while on the bus). You're about to take a culinary journey.

Episode 014: Adam Levy - In the Mind of a Poker Pro

January 17, 2017

Adam, known to many as @Roothlus, is a professional poker player who exited a life on Poker’s biggest stage in an attempt to forge a new path. Though he’s taking risks in the entrepreneurial and marketing game these days, it’s his diverse skills from playing Poker and Magic: The Gathering that helped open the floodgates.  He’s quite the social experimenter, has some wild stories from his poker days, and is known to make a stir with his top 10 lists. Plus, he’s just much happier when he can share an opinion or two.

His most celebrated poker achievement undoubtedly had to come back in the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) main event, where he placed 12th overall. It wasn't just Adams audacious poker play that propelled him to fame but more of his casual celebrity run-ins, with the likes of Phil Hellmuth and Justin Beiber! 

We talk about the grass being greener outside Adam's comfort zones as well as the evolution of slang and language through ebonics. This conversation is great for any 20 something year old who thought the best way to optimize his or her's human experience is through fame and fortune.

Episode 012: Troy Wiggins - Reggae and Wise Words

December 27, 2016

Music is Emotional. And musical creation elicits emotional responses. But what is the inspiration behind a song? And what about its lyrics? Cue Troy Wiggins.

Troy is the Drummer from Reggae band - Roots of a Rebellion (R.O.A.R.), based out of Nashville, TN. A grassroots band with 6 members, Roots of a Rebellion just played at Bonnaroo Music Festival and released their second album, A Brother's Instinct. Their music can be found on every major platform and their reach extends from America to Europe and the Caribbean.

A thoughtful speaker and songwriter (despite being the drummer), Troy shares an insightful conversation with us about his band’s inception and we were blown away to learn how well they function together behind the scenes. Besides great topics such as augmented reality at music festivals and dread culture, Troy shares some personal moments with his band about a song he wrote for his father.

You can connect with Troy on Instagram @treece_wiggs and on Facebook at Troy Wiggins. You can find the band @rootsofarebellion on Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube.

Episode 010: Kevin Wong - The Invincible Travel Budget

December 12, 2016

Kevin Wong aka Kwongeroo (more on that nickname in the show) is a 26 year old world traveler from Canada known for his ability to globe trot on a $25USD per day budget. 

 

His keen interest in traversing the world in the cheapest and most fulfilling way possible has unlocked his ability to optimize travel at all levels. Kevin can tell you the most cost effective (and savory) places to eat when you step into a new and foreign place and how to save money on transportation. 

 

His current trip is 20 months long and spans over 50 countries. This episode becomes an insightful conversation about the mission to break the 9-5 job barrier and travel near forever. We make the intrinsic fear on the road something tangible for discussion, whilst breaking down the psychosis of travel anxiety. 

 

Highlights from this episode include how American politics are viewed outside of the U.S. (Spoiler Alert: they care a lot more than we do) including the ripple affect abroad, Kevin's trip to see the Chernobyl Metal Dome, and tips and travel tricks for the newly adjusted backpacker. 

Chernobyl Dome

BEEP! BEEP! The Bus is pulling in for a stop!  Got our first return guest and yes you guessed it, it's Dr. Money P (aka Jeff Morris). Somehow the podcast continued on the topic of body dismemberment yet we pivot towards religion, science, medicine, food and diet.
