The Four Eric/ks

Episode 106: The Four Eric/ks 

In what he calls “a story of common threads”, JDK focuses on what he learned about himself from four people with one common name – Eric (or with a ‘k’), from early childhood through to today. Four different people, four different experiences (and a couple of them not-so-good) that ended up being uncommon sources of inspiration, humility, and growth.

The True Legend of ‘Goat Butt’

Episode 105: “The True Legend of ‘Goat Butt'”

JDK relays a deeply personal story about one of the most important experiences in his life, one that – unbeknownst to him at the time – prepared him to face the biggest crises he’s ever faced. Yet, it also prepared him to accept so much more good in his life than he once thought possible.

Painting A Larger Historical Picture

Episode 104: “Painting A Larger Historical Picture”

With March being Women’s History month, JDK takes a look at the “democratization” of historical narratives over the past half-century, and why these efforts are still necessary and why they need not be seen as threatening to anyone. He also explores why these stories receive so much pushback from some quarters, and how they can push each of us – no matter who we are – to grow and learn to live with discomfort AND better connection with others.
