Josh: The Podcast, Episode 14: Here come the conventions!

The time we next speak, it'll be nominating day for Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, and we'll be just days away from the Democratic National Convention. Do the conventions matter? What's it going to be like in the wake of all the violence the past couple of weeks, particularly in Cleveland — where officers have been involved in a couple of highly-criticized shooting deaths in the past couple of years and with Ohio being an open carry state?

Josh: The Podcast, Episode 13: Declaring independence

flag

When, in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one person to look around at the landscape of today's world and do his best to keep his head from exploding, maybe it's time to just remember where we came from in the week after Independence Day and read the Declaration of Independence.

Happy podcast day.

Josh: The Podcast, Episode 12: Hello, Birmingham. Plus: Kids shooting kids (again)

I spent a couple of quick days in Birmingham over the past week, and I came back to a 10-year-old accidentally shooting his 8-year-old cousin. You know how I feel about this, right? And then a 5-year-old in New Jersey shot a 4-year-old with his mom's gun. Sigh.

10-year-old shoots 8-year-old, parents say, "They know better"
5-year-old boy playing with mom's gun shoots, kills 4-year-old brother

Bonus material for patrons is about doing some research and having good discussions.

In the bonus material for Episode 10, I asked Lewis Howes' question about three truths you know. Listener sent his three. I think they're worth sharing.

• When in doubt or despair there is always a way to fight or push through — never give up.
• There is no magic pill — there may be many different roads but every journey will require hustle and hard work.
• Don't get stuck on money is everything. Yes you need to support yourself and your family and determine where you are comfortable but more importantly, you should do something you love every day. As unrealistic as it sometimes sounds, it can be done. Find joy in your daily life.
