Episode 076 with Singer/Songwriter & Blind Author Heather Hutchison - Seeing More Clearly
Heather Hutchison is an award-winning singer/songwriter and the author of Holding On by Letting Go: A Memoir. Blind since birth and having struggled with mental illness from a young age, she is passionate about educating people on disability and mental health through her music and writing. An avid traveler, Heather has spent time living and teaching English in Latin America, and her memoir catalogs her story - "Being blind since birth, a once-spirited kid with big dreams now finds herself in a locked psychiatric facility--a wounded young woman in the midst of a global pandemic. This memoir spans decades and continents to tell a story of the beautiful similarities that make us all human. From meeting unlikely allies in the dirty streets of some of Latin America's most impoverished neighborhoods to discovering difficult truths about discrimination in her home country of Canada, Heather Hutchison offers poignant insight into mental health awareness, and what it means to strive for an ordinary life when you are often treated as anything but ordinary. At once heartbreakingly honest and strikingly witty, Holding On by Letting Go is the unforgettable true story of one woman's journey through despair to acceptance and hope. Ultimately, it is a portrayal of the light that can be found in the darkest of times."

Episode 068 with Abrielle Dunn - The Sense Making Sickness Series - Wait Why Are We LARPing
The Sense-Making Sickness Series is a Junkyard Love Podcast side-step towards creative conversation, collaboration, and problem-solving surrounding the events unfolding in many of our daily lived realities. The episodes in this series remain a part of the larger Junkyard Love Podcast while having a certain flair and spark of their own. These conversations hold no misconceptions of grandeur and though the subjects at hand are often very serious - I approach them without taking myself to be immensely serious, correct, full of wisdom, or as an arbiter of all the right answers. I merely seek to shine a light on different ways of perceiving information and understanding one another. With these talks; I hope to usher in internal epiphany within listeners, I hope to spark broader conversations of the sort, and I hope to unwind narratives within us that no longer serve our best interests. This chat takes place with Abrielle Dunn, whom had no indication that this conversation would be posted under "The SenseMaking Sickness Series" here on the podcast until nearing the end of the 3.5 hour talk. Abrielle and I often find ourselves writing and contemplating back and forth to one another surrounding these similar subjects - so the natural candor of these curious and metacognitive discussions are not unusual to our friendship or natural ways of speaking to one another. This conversation covers a bit of the madness of the western world, the deceit of "bad othering", delusions of truth through our media channels, conspiracy theories, false news narratives, emotional regulation, blindly living different realities, tribalism, mistaken authenticity, living the WWE reality, getting caught in kayfabe, political LARPing, the race to the bottom of the brain stem, societal trauma, cultural shadow, gratitude, being unknowingly lost in our minds, relating to others, bringing compassion to others, trump-ism, woke-ism, belief systems, projection, the downfalls of close-mindedness, the fluidity of life, general mental illness, our mistaken identities, addiction, the art of listening, the importance of accurate conversation, thinking differently than others, accidental victim mindsets, fast-moving technology and algorithmic changes of who we are and how we interact with one another, relaying and relating to one another, changing our narratives, false panic, the race to the bottom of the brain stem, reporters, truth, camera angles, companies and corporations, looking through different windows, echo chambers, and horse sized ducks.

Episode 067 with Intuitive Healer Jaycie Randall - A Path From The Past
Jaycie Randall is an intuitive empathic healer who works with women experiencing strain or pain around mental blockages, childhood trauma, sexual trauma, victim mentalities, triggers, holding onto past experiences longer than helpful, and finding their true Self within. Jaycie speaks elegantly and with compassion about all subjects related to healing and integrative shadow work. This episode brings up various views of things like healing, growth, trauma, therapy, victim mindsets, the Power of NOW, shifting perspectives with grace and dignity, and moving through changing perceptions. We speak on some of the transitional times in our personal lives, we talk about reframing life narratives, growing out of our stories, the pitfalls of creating "bad other" to feel more righteous, identifying with the lack and victim presets learned in younger years, being the 'mediator' of your best self, feminine energy, masculine energy, shadow work and inspection of the places within us that we deny with ego. Our talk reaches concepts like imposter syndrome, self-belief, accepting praise and compliments, feeling fake and downtrodden, upgrading to the 2.0 version of yourself, comparison to others, and comparison to your past self. Jaycie and I share some remedies and actionables for things like journaling, meditation, prayer, and positive affirmation - and we talk about 'cringing' when remembering past behaviors. We connect on experiences with altered states of consciousness, (emotionally and chemically induced) living as a modern spiritual being, the Meyers-Briggs personality test, we talk about being INFJ’s, we touch on co-dependency, being intuitive, being empathic, we speak about channeling, being clairvoyant, understanding, presence, compassion, experiences in therapy, and the current rebirth of the shaman archetype into our culture. I am grateful for Jaycie's willingness to come onto the podcast and share some of her personal stories and speak about her work in these fields. To have so many types of healers and wisdom bringers on this podcast platform is truly a blessing. Thank you for listening, I hope this helps. For more on this guest - checkout her website lookingwithin.squarespace (she does free consultation chats!) and follow her on instagram @jaycie.randall. Books mentioned: “The Power Of Now” by Eckhart Tolle “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay Notable quotes from the guest on this podcast: “The world is happening FOR me not TO me” “That was what kind of shifted my mindset to looking at my past from “ Oh my gosh poor me” to: “It doesn’t fucking matter, all I have is right here right now - and I create that moment.” “You’re able to shift. When you’re in victimhood you often don’t realize you’re stuck in the victim mentality until you have someone point out ‘yeah you have this going on but here’s the reality of the situation.” “Pain is energy but energy forms into your reality.” “We have huge social media platforms with high expectations, that most of us feel like we have to kind of ‘upkeep’ with - when in reality.. who gives a shit?” “That’s something I have to always hold onto - I know who I am, I know what I bring to the table, I know all the change and growth that’s really happened. As long as I keep continuously showing up for myself, that’s enough and we’re good to go, it doesn’t really matter what other people think.” “I think the behind the scenes: your ‘being’ your ‘soul’, your whole identity in that moment, is rejecting the new identity that you’re creating.” “You can be extremely intuitive, psychically smart, spiritually intelligent, and still be a human being who wants to do nice things for yourself like have nice clothes, have nice hair, nice stuff, all in the same swing.”

Episode 065 with Josh Gebhardt - It's Open Mic Night For Being Yourself
Josh Gebhardt is a successful Director Of Sales at a large business and travel expense management company based in the Pacific Northwest. Since I've known him, Josh has exuded flair and confidence - and in this episode, I attempt to draw a deeper understanding on how he placed himself in the positions he is in, and how he built up such inspiring levels of authenticity, confidence, and action in the face of adversity. Mr. Gebhardt intertwines his work with purpose and fulfillment and sparks interior lights of self-belief in others by simply exuding his genuine self. Josh talks being one of the only people in the room without a college degree, creating a brotherhood environment amongst co-workers, pushing social limits, expanding comfort zones, removing barriers with action, and being confident in his sexuality. We talk being 'liked' and magnetic to the right types of people, balancing different aspects of our personalities, the influence of social media on our behaviors, attracting certain types of relationships and friends, chasing wrong connections, showing vulnerability, and the difficulty of "trying" to be authentic all the time. Josh questions me on some of my influences as an artist, and we talk about our past experiences with music, singing, festivals, twelve dollar beers, and dancing our faces off. I hope you find some value in mining the heart and mind of the wonderful Josh Gebhardt - as I know I sure did. If you enjoyed this episode - consider hitting like, following or sharing with a friend.

Thanks for listening. A couple good quotes I grabbed while listening back: "I was always able to be 100% myself, My family always made me feel like I could do anything I wanted to do." "I had the chance to be myself without any baggage of who you think you are, or the way you grow up, or who you're around, or pressures of hurting the people around you by being your authentic self." "I would prep, I would give myself a pep talk on the way in the car - I'd be like 'Ok you're gonna go to the bar, you're going by yourself, you don't have a single friend, you don't know a single person in L.A. - you have to go and have the ability to start a conversation with someone face to face - and so I would do that, just go to the bar and approach people."

An important series introduction is presented in the form of a short audio essay that exists in the first ten minutes of this episode. I encourage you to listen for a better understanding of what to expect. In this coming series of episodes, Spencer and I will attempt to make sense of what is going on in our world to cause such division and confusion amongst neighbors and fellow humans. We will stumble and ramble our way to formulating the questions that need asking and the answers that present themselves. We will try to police our own bias and emotional states, our own judgments, our wrong assessments, and our own blind spots. As new problems emerge for the human condition - we must present and practice new ways of conversation and problem-solving. Neither of us claims to be fully right, to be the most educated, to know the most truths, nor to have the correct psychosomatic tools. But we embark on this multiple part series because it is difficult, important, and we just don’t see many trying to meet the confusions from this lens of perception. Rather than claim the ability to educate the listeners - we hope to usher in individual epiphany by way of exploring and widening our own thoughts. These conversations will undoubtedly be messy at first, but as we determine the correct definitions and jump from stepping stone to stepping stone - we hope the path shows itself and the journey creates sparks of wisdom for different types of listeners at different points of their lives along the way. We have no grandiose ideas of being special, omniscient, or even particularly wise on the subject of sense-making itself - but we choose to pick up our swords and proceed towards the battlefield nonetheless. If individual sovereignty formulates group coherence and strengthens our human ability to process information and make sense of moderns life's complexities - this is the way. In an effort to better understand the division and changing times we are faced with as humanity and civilization - following every episode, Spencer and I will assess what we did wrong, what went right, what could be explained better, what could be thought more in-depth about, how we can discuss what's important for the next episode, and how we can continuously adjust our conversation style and subjects to better explain our findings and ideas for the next conversation. Here we propose that there is a sense-making crisis, we discuss the meaning of truth, self-sovereignty, dogma, bias, thesis as a human, obtaining a why, meeting each other at the wrong playing fields, types of conversation, examples from the political climate and much more. This chat seemed to set a decent groundwork for where we can go next. The map will form itself and we are hopeful the territory will present soon after. These episodes (we hope) will become more formulated and precise as we progress. Enjoy your day and go out of your way to be nice to someone whos not like you. Cheers
