# 66 | Will Strom - From Exogenous to Endogenous Drugs
We are drugs. Every activity and interaction elicits a chemical response triggering reward and suffering. Many things in moderation won’t kill you and those things will trigger different chemical signals in your body. People, to a varying degree, act out routines and ambitions to achieve a chemically driven goal. Sometimes we go awry and pursue chemical bliss despite the consequences - we become alcoholics, caffeine fiends, binge eaters, tweakers, etc. What’s even more common is the mild addiction that doesn’t ruin your life, but is burdensome like the overeating, overdrinking, or athletic training despite an injury. In this episode, I sit down with Will Strom. He’s an avid outdoorsman who wrestled with substance abuse. Will has climbed the mountains throughout the Cascades, including Mt Adams and St. Helens. We talk on his transition from substance abuse to pursuing the rugged peaks and valleys of the Northern Cascades. The archetypical relationship between purpose, suffering, and bliss is fascinating. Overcoming addiction is a herculean challenge and I admire anybody who rises to the occasion. Will Strom is a great guy and it was a joy to listen to his story.

#65 | Guest Post - " Spontaneous Sundays With AllOne Ep.18 featuring Drip 'N' Drive "
This week, I'm guest posting Allone's show, Spontaneous Sundays. It's an improv hip-hop show staring AllOne, DJ's and other MCs. Spontaneous Sundays is a weekly series I created in an attempt to continue creating with people and communicating through improvisational art. It is a no-ego, no-frills, no bells, no whistles, "warts-and-all" exploration and celebration of freestyle rapping and the incredible experience of spontaneous creation. The series is going to be a presentation of some cyphers I will be having weekly with friends both new and old of various artistic disciplines from all walks of life.

Some people spend their whole lives pursuing mastery of a craft, doing whatever it takes to play, perform and evolve. Austin Daffron is a fascinating Jiu-Jitsu athlete, in his early twenties he positioned himself to spend most of his time doing the things he loves rather than being caught-up in a conventional career.

Alfred Murillo has committed a great deal of himself to Jiu-Jitsu, in the name of pursuing what excites him.

What makes somebody commit atrocities and how do we handle that as a species? This question, at once, fascinates me and causes me to shutter.

Looking past any assumptions and you’ll see a curious and thought provoking fella.
