We really like you, but can you be serious? I hear that a lot now I do breakfast radio. Apparently somewhere along the way I’ve found myself into a pigeonhole. That’s the funny guy, and he probably doesn’t have the capacity to be serious. We’d love to have you as an MC but don’t think…

When I was in my 20’s I had big dreams. I wanted to change the world, write book, speak to thousands of people, travel the world, get married, ride unicorns and punch Titans.

I’ve been battling a little with Normal. I just don’t think the measure for normal is correct. What constitutes normal? What makes our family normal? What means that all things at home are normal? Is it health? Finances? Equilibrium? It seems that what is normal varies household to household. Your normal isn’t my normal and…
