Karamo Brown Is Culture
Play • 1 hr 41 min

You can’t grow if you don’t confront that which limits you. So face it. Ask for help. Have the hard conversations. Commit to the work. And I promise, your life will change.

I’ve seen it come to pass countless times—in myself and many others.

But few have more experience with personal transformation than Karamo Brown—a man who overcame tremendous adversity to enliven the best in others.

The ‘culture’ expert on Netflix’s massive hit show Queer Eye, Karamo is a father, former social worker, and psychotherapist who was first introduced to audiences on MTV’s The Real World in 2004. He continued to build their trust as a host on Dr. Drew Live, HuffPost Live, and Access Hollywood Live.

Karamo’s self-titled primer on emotional healing, Karamo: My Story Of Embracing Purpose, Healing, is an inspiring must-read for anyone grappling with adversity. In addition, he is the founder of 6in10, an organization that provides mental health support and education to the LGBTQ+ community, and the co-founder of Mantl, a skin-care line for bald men.

Today he shares his powerful story, dropping pearls of guidance in the process.

This is a conversation about culture beyond art museums and the ballet. It’s about how people feel about themselves and others, how they relate to the world around them, and how their shared labels, burdens, and experiences affect their daily lives in ways both subtle and profound.

It’s also about the culture of Karamo. Raised in the South by a Jamaican father and Cuban mother in predominantly white neighborhoods, it’s a story of overcoming personal issues of colorism, physical and emotional abuse. Alcohol and drug addiction. And public infamy.

But more than anything, this is a conversation about what holds people back. It’s about the importance of exploring our difficulties. And what’s required to transcend our past, move forward, and ultimately live our best lives.

I adore this man and I love this conversation.

Morgan Housel on The Psychology of Money
This week’s conversation is with Morgan Housel, a partner at The Collaborative Fund and a former columnist at The Motley Fool and The Wall Street Journal.  He is a two-time winner of the Best in Business Award from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, winner of the New York Times Sidney Award, and a two-time finalist for the Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. Morgan recently published a book titled, The Psychology of Money, and it’s the impetus for why I wanted to talk to him. If you’ve listened to this podcast for a while, you know I live by this stance: having a philosophy for your life is imperative... What I hope you take from this conversation is that the same can be said for how you think about money. There isn’t simply one "right" way to manage your money, but it should align with the greater values you live by. At one point in our conversation, Morgan shares that he doesn’t have a mortgage on his house, that he owns it outright. I was a bit stumped at first because it would appear, especially in our current climate with how low interest rates are, that this is foolish. Isn’t there a huge opportunity cost to that? But Morgan is clear on his principles, what makes him feel secure, and what’s “enough” for him... not having to think about a mortgage is something that’s important to him. So this conversation isn’t focused so much on what to do with your money, but the importance of having clarity on the reasons why you choose to do, what you do, with it.  ----- Please support our partners!

Roy Kinsey | The Rapbrarian
My guest today, Chicago-born and raised, Roy Kinsey, is a bit of an anomaly. A black, queer-identified, rapper, and librarian or as he puts it, Rapbrarian. Roy’s escape from trauma and creative outlet as a kid was writing and music and also a love of books and learning. He began sharing his words and beats, rapping at a young age, but really began to elevate his pursuit of music-making in college, performing and refining his craft. Graduating, he began making a name for himself, performing, recording and releasing albums, while simultaneously earning degrees that would find him working as a librarian by day and an artist by night. A few albums in, Roy began to feel like an essential part of him was being kept from his music and also his community, so he made the decision to come out as queer on an album at a time very few others in the space of rap and hip-hop were out. It was a moment that would transform him and his music. Roy has since released a series of powerful albums, including his latest powerful reflection, KINSEY: A Memoir (http://www.roykinsey.com/shop). He’s been featured on the cover of major local publications like Chicago Reader and the Chicago Tribune, in and on major national, and international publications like Billboard, LA Times, NPR, WBEZ’s Vocalo. And Roy has even found a way to bring his love of music and books together, running workshops as a librarian in the Teen Services/Youmedia department for Chicago Public Libraries.

Tame Your Dragons, Train Your Brain and Take Back Your Happiness – Dr. Daniel Amen with Dave Asprey : 798
This episode of Bulletproof Radio goes deep into the dragon psyche. No, not “Game of Thrones,” but specifically our inner dragons.  “A dragon is an issue you're dealing with, that your brain is listening to, but it's not helping you,” says brain expert Dr. Daniel Amen. These dragons are the ones that “breathe fire on our emotional brain,” like anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness and more (you can find out what yours are at www.knowyourdragons.com). As a physician, double board-certified psychiatrist, professor, and author of 30 books, Dr. Amen has a lot to share about taming the beasts that beset us.   In his newest book “Your Brain is Always Listening: Tame the Hidden Dragons that Control Your Happiness, Habits and Hang-ups,” he talks about those dragon origin stories, their triggers, your reactions and how to tame them. He has a lot of tips for how we can step outside of our mind to distance ourselves from the dragon’s fire, like tuning into your pleasure centers, and how to guide your mind to look for what’s right rather than what’s wrong. “It's like a little treasure hunt,” Dr. Amen says. “And I look for even the micro moments. What are the smallest things that happened today that just made me happy? And it sets your dreams up to be more positive. These little habits are so helpful if you can make them part of your everyday life. You literally can train your brain. And when you do, your life is happier.” We talk about the ways past physical and emotional trauma may impact the way we heal, how our dragons are always interacting with other people’s dragons, how this is all affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and much more.  Dr. Amen gives practical tools you can use to stop feeling sad, mad, nervous or out of control and start being happier, calmer, and more in control of your own destiny.  Enjoy!

#161 How To Keep Your Brain Healthy At Any Age
Today’s episode is a little bit different to usual, it's a special compilation episode, all about how to look after our brains. The brain is our most vital and complex organ and it controls and coordinates all of our actions, thoughts and interactions with the world around us. It’s the source of our personality, our sense of self, and it shapes every aspect of our human experience. Yet most of us don't actually know or think that much about how our brains really work, and what we can do to improve its performance. So, this special episode aims to bring you some of the highlights from previous episodes of my podcast, all themed around the brain. You're going to hear about growing new nerve cells, how learning a new language can impact your brain, the powerful effects of music, as well as the importance of movement and human touch and so much more. My hope is that by the end of this podcast, you will have learned some new fascinating information about the brain, as well as some practical brain boosting strategies that you can adopt immediately. I really hope you enjoy listening.

Control Pain & Heal Faster with Your Brain | Episode 9
In this episode I describe the science of how and why pain arises in the body and brain, and how we can actively control our experience of pain. I discuss inflammation, stress, acupuncture, limb damage and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). I review protocols that leverage the lymphatic and nervous system to accelerate pain relief and healing in a variety of situations. Other topics discussed include how heat versus cold impacts neurons and wounds, red-light, sunlight, stem cells and more.

Most dreams never come true, and if you really want to succeed in business, you finally have to take action on your ideas and overcome every obstacle getting in your way. People you love will tell you, “that will never work.” But with that said, your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them. In this episode of Impact Theory, Tom Bilyeu is joined by Marc Randolph. As co-founder and founding CEO of Netflix, Marc laid much of the groundwork for a service that’s grown to 150 million subscribers and fundamentally altered how the world experiences media. Tom and Marc explore how Marc managed to take action on his dreams and succeeded against all odds. Marc shares how he started Netflix and how they tweaked their business and stopped it from failing like most businesses. Marc shares the single most fundamental problem why most people never take action on their ideas. Furthermore, Marc reveals the skilla he is good at, which he calls “the entrepreneur’s secret weapon” and how running for a plane taught Marc the right mindset to chill in the midst of chaos and much more. SHOW NOTES: The one-sentence Marc has heard 1000 times from his friends, his family, basically everyone when pitching the idea of Netflix. [1:24] What Tom tells his team of what’s really important when it comes to good ideas. [2:30] The fundamental things Marc learned in his 50s while skateboarding that helped him build Netflix [3:25] How Marc started Netflix and how they tweaked the idea to stopped it from failing like most businesses. [5:27] The even better approach to “there are no good ideas” to generate winning ideas. [7:49] The single most fundamental problem why most people never take action on their ideas. [9:05] What separates an Entrepreneur from a dreamer. [9:46] What Marc looks for in Entrepreneurs when Angel Investing to see if they´re on the right track on how to apply this principle to any other business. [10:14] The fundamental misunderstanding of Entrepreneurship and the deep-seated psychological fear everyone (even Marc) struggled with for years. [15:41] The idea of “two-way doors” Marc teaches young Entrepreneurs to practice to escape the traps of perfectionism and take immediate action. (And prevent them from taking too much risk.) [20:21] The fundamental truth about knowing what to test.  [21:42] Where 98% of Netflix´s revenue did come from initially and why Marc decided to give up that revenue. [24:06] The skill Marc is good at, that he calls “the entrepreneurs secret weapon” [27:20] This “Canada principle” made Netflix strong and beat the competition. [29:42] This brutal moment destroys most business relationships and how Marc handled this “big ego” moment. [32:48] Why the person who starts a company is not necessarily the right one to run it when it´s big. [37:58] The real challenge in Marc’s life that he is most proud of when he looks back. [41:10] How Marc managed to maintain his relationship while building his businesses. [43:04] How running for a plane taught Marc the right mindset to chill in the midst of chaos. [45:26] The three reasons why Marc loves running in Alaska. [47:24] The rules Marc´s father taught Marc, and he passed them to his children. [49:14] The core principles Marc instills in his kids. (Not what you think.) [52:07] Marc’s new podcast about how to take ideas and make them real. [54:40]     QUOTES:   “Stop thinking. Start Doing.” [9:49] “You don´t need to build an app. You don´t need to start a business. You don´t need to raise money. You just need to figure out a way to quickly test your idea and collide it with some reality.“ [15:15] “The speed, getting it out there fast, is so much more important.” [19:42] “Most ideas are not one-way doors. Most things are two-way doors. You can step through, look around, and if you don´t like what you see, you step right back. Train your ability to separate a one-way door from a two-way door. Then you just blast through that door because you know: If I don´t like what I see, I can step right back. No harm.“ [20:42] “We decided that it was way better to take this long shot at a great success than to take this pretty sure path to mediocrity and eventually to go out of business.” [26:50] “It´s extremely rare that the person who had the skillset to start something, to grow something, is the same person who takes it all the way.“ [38:23] “Culture isn´t what you say. It´s what you do.“ [44:24]   FOLLOW MARC: “That Will Never Work” Podcast: Apple Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/that-will-never-work/id1550777106 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3AABlfn5yx0hLKMYE5LVlh?si=iJkUfQTUSva6ytMdoLhb0A&nd=1 Google Podcast: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9yc3MuYXJ0MTkuY29tL3RoYXQtd2lsbC1uZXZlci13b3Jr Website: www.marcrandolph.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marcbrandolph Twitter: https://twitter.com/mbrandolph Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatwillneverwork/

Ep. 9: Dr. Reshma Shah - Food and Family
Last week, we spoke with registered dietitian and author, Brenda Davis, about her latest work called, Nourish: The Definitive Plant-Based Nutrition Guide for Families--With Tips & Recipes for Bringing Health, Joy, & Connection to Your Dinner Table. This week, we continue with part two of this important topic with co-author, Dr. Reshma Shah. Dr. Shah is a board-certified pediatrician, mother, plant-based home-cook, teacher, and student. She has nearly two decades of experience caring for children and families, and currently sees patients at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and serves as an affiliate clinical instructor at Stanford University School of Medicine. We know it’s hard to bring an entire family on board the plant-based journey with you because there is a real fear around community, judgment, and nutrition requirements. We also know that you want what’s best for your families and it’s time we have positive conversations around food — with your doctors, friends, and especially your family. Dr. Shah reveals some of the tools, resources, and recipes from the book that will bring joy, abundance, and nutrition back to the family table. It will also instill confidence in knowing that you’re making powerful and positive decisions for the benefit of your entire family for years to come. It's never too late to make changes and bring the family along the adventure with you.

Best and Worst Foods for Alzheimer’s Disease | Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai
Eating fast food can be traumatic for the brain. In turn, the toxicity can increase the chance that you may develop Alzheimer’s disease. On this episode of The Exam Room™, Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to explain why foods loaded with fat, sugar and salt can send brain cells into a frenzy! These are the very foods that are staples of the standard American diet! You will also learn the enormous number of calories the brain burns every day and how much better it can function by eating a healthy diet that contains plenty of whole fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. Eating these foods every day can also dramatically reduce the odds that you will become one of the millions of Americans who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Plus, Team Sherzai, authors of The 30-Day Alzheimer’s Solution, reveals the brain power boosting foods you need to bring home to your kitchen! — — — 30 Day Alzheimer’s Solution Book https://amzn.to/3sDnqwX — — — Team Sherzai IG: @sherzaimd Twitter: @SherzaiMD — — — PCRM Alzheimer’s Resources https://www.pcrm.org/alzheimers — — — International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine 2021 Register: https://pcrm.org/icnm — — — Chuck Carroll IG: @ChuckCarrollWLC Twitter: @ChuckCarrollWLC Facebook: https://wghtloss.cc/ChuckFacebook — — — Barnard Medical Center Telemedicine Schedule Appointment https://bit.ly/BMCtelemed 202-527-7500 — — — Physicians Committee Twitter: @PCRM IG: @PhysiciansCommittee Facebook: https://wghtloss.cc/PCRMFacebook YouTube: https://bit.ly/PCRMYouTube — — — Share the Show Please subscribe and give the show a 5-star rating on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or many other podcast providers.

Approaching climate change like a game of chess with Dr Jonathan Foley
In *Episode #119* I sit down with *Dr Jonathan Foley*, one of the worlds most highly regarded Climate and Environmental Scientist's. Jonathan has published over 130 peer reviewed papers in the the field of sustainability in highly prestigious journals such as _Science_ and _Nature_. He is also an author, a highly sought after guest speaker and is the Executive Director at Project Drawdown, a not-for-profit organisation which is widely considered as the worlds leading resource for information on climate solutions.

And of course, share it to any friends or family members who you think may benefit from hearing from Dr Foley. *Resources:* * Project Drawdown * Jonathan's Bio * Jonathan on twitter * Jonathon's blog 'Beef rules' * Jonathan's blog on seeing Climate change as a game of Chess * Confused about holistic grazing and whether grass-fed beef is a real climate solution?

We’re all just trying to figure out what this world and this life are all about, and do our best at living well. At least I know I am! But wouldn’t it be nice to have a little help when it comes to recovering from traumas, treating anxiety and depression, understanding spirituality on a new level, successfully overcoming addiction, and even reducing our fear of death? Well, research and clinical trials in the field of psychedelics is showing that we can.  Psychedelics were the subject of serious medical research in the 1940s to the 1960s, when many scientists believed some of the mind-bending compounds held tremendous therapeutic promise for treating a number of conditions including severe mental health problems and alcohol addiction. By the mid-60s, research into psychedelics was shut down for decades. After the blackout ended, the doctor we have on the podcast today was among the first to initiate a new series of studies on psilocybin—the psychoactive compound in “magic” mushrooms. On today’s mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Roland Griffiths, a Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurosciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Griffiths’ principle research focus in both clinical and preclinical laboratories has been on the behavioral and subjective effects of mood-altering drugs.  His research has been largely supported by grants from the National Institute of Health, and he is the author of over 360 journal articles and book chapters. In 1999 he initiated a research program at Johns Hopkins investigating the effects of the classic hallucinogen psilocybin that includes studies of psilocybin-occasioned mystical-type experiences in healthy volunteers, psilocybin-facilitated treatment of psychological distress in cancer patients, psilocybin-facilitated treatment of cigarette smoking cessation, and psilocybin effects in long-term meditators. In this episode, we discuss the therapeutic benefits of psilocybin for the treatment of addiction, and how a single dose of psilocybin substantially diminished depression and anxiety in cancer patients.  Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Roland Griffiths here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/DrRolandGriffiths/ For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

I’m a huge fan of morning routines because I think they can transform your ability to focus, sleep well, and get the most out of your day, especially in this busy, modern world.  What I’ve found is that the best way to begin your day is to feed your body the right information or the right nutrients. That’s why Dr. Hyman and I created the Pegan Shake. It’s a nutritionally packed morning blend designed to support healthy blood sugar, energy, and brainpower.   It contains some of my most favorite brain-boosting foods like MCT and avocado. It also features acacia fiber for healthy gut function and collagen, pumpkin, and pea protein to support muscle synthesis. Check it out at getfarmacy.com/peganshake.

36: What You Gain by Slowing Down
We often feel like we have to make a decision, make a change, make a difference, or achieve a goal quickly. But if we want the benefits to be meaningful and lasting, shouldn’t we be willing to take our time? In this episode, we consider the downside of rushing into a decision to change without considering the realities of trying to create change in too much of a hurry. Then, we'll explore some alternatives. Takeaways: * Knowing or understanding how to do something isn’t the same as actually doing it and experiencing it. Better to gather less information and apply it than to gather lots of information but never to put anything into action. * Sometimes, learning how to slow down and be more deliberate is part of what we need to learn to do in order to get to the result we’re seeking. * Before deciding to commit to a new goal or challenge, be sure you understand what it will involve and whether you’re actually willing to do what it will take. * Things we acquire or develop through slow steady work have a better chance of becoming long-term habits. Lab Experiment Think of an area of your life where you feel like you are in a hurry to finish or achieve something. And ask yourself: * Is trying to get there more quickly actually serving you or just causing you to cut corners? * How could slowing down actually enhance either the process or the result (or both)? * What do you need to adjust about either your actions, beliefs, or self-talk to allow yourself to slow down? * What parts of the process (rather than the outcome) can you focus on that will bring you pleasure and satisfaction?
