Episode Info:

Rachel describes herself as a self-proclaimed Kansas Ambassador as does this month’s guests, Bryan Lisbona. Bryan is driven by the philosophy #lovewhereyoulive, and he invests in that philosophy and takes daily steps to live his truth. Through our conversation listeners will uncover details of Bryan and his family’s journey into small town life after their decision to leave one of the state’s (sub)urban areas. Listeners uncover the benefits of smaller towns, and why Kansas offers distinctive qualities of life such as knowing your neighbors; the ability, perhaps necessity, to get involved and impact your town in concrete ways; and living in communities whose energy wellspring is generated by the various personalities and characteristics and actions of the town-folk themselves, not by the depth of restaurant reservation wait-lists and number of new openings of entertainment venues.

We talked and uncovered A LOT, so the ‘links in the show notes” are pretty long!
