We’re coloring outside the lines today with a life coach-comedian-author-and viral slam poet, and it’s one of the more interesting discussions we’ve had on the podcast. Justin Blackburn joins us to talk about connecting to source, purpose, and feeling good, rather than struggling to fit in, accepting a ready-made identity, and believing our own bullshit. We touch on everything, from Carl Rogers, psychiatric medications and mental institutions, spirituality, and negative self-talk, to creativity, fraternities, and the frustrating paradox of marketing oneself to help others.
