Podcast 018: Think Harder

In This Episode: Kit thinks we should go deeper into the featured story to really understand the “thinking” implications: it’s not all about laughing at a funny tagline. Plus, I explore Kit’s approach to coaching a bit more, since I had some questions after hearing her on a couple of other podcasts! And: another segment in No Longer Weird.

Podcast 017: How to Lose Everything, Instantly

In This Episode: More on the story about the loss (to fire) of the Hewlett-Packard archive of papers about their early formation, with a special guest connecting in from the coast to talk about how that could have been prevented. Because H-P’s loss has a lesson for all of us, which is why I called the story “Wake-Up Call”. Plus, another segment of No Longer Weird. Show Notes: https://thisistrue.com/podcast17

Podcast 016: Unfit for Office?

In This Episode: A new co-host, an interesting question from a reader, another segment in No Longer Weird, and a story about a political candidate who is …a bit “out there.” WAY out there. And, of course, another segment of No Longer Weird. Show Notes: https://thisistrue.com/podcast16

Podcast 015: That’s Legal Now

In This Episode: A complaint about last week’s featured story, which leads to why prices online end in “77” (vs “.99” offline), another segment of No Longer Weird, and how to be so stupid you can get busted for possession of marijuana in Colorado — where pot is legal! Plus: why Uncommon Sense doesn’t have “sponsors”. Show Notes: https://thisistrue.com/podcast15

Podcast 014: An Act of Charity

In This Episode: A mostly seasonal segment for No Longer Weird. Then, it seems like just a funny story, but a crusty donation to a food bank maybe isn’t so charitable after all, and — when you think about it — demonstrates the value of thinking about your actions before doing. Show Notes: https://thisistrue.com/podcast14

Podcast 013: How ADD Made TRUE Possible

In This Episode: Society seems to think ADD/ADHD is some sort of curse. Yet when properly managed, it provides “superpowers” that are an absolute gift. Randy and a special guest — his high performance coach (who specializes in entrepreneurs with ADD/ADHD) — talk about why that is, and what it takes to get away from the “monsters” that are created by society dealing with our neurological types. Plus, an extra-fun segment of No Longer Weird. Show Notes: https://thisistrue.com/podcast13

Podcast 011: Cassini: The Bigger Picture

In This Episode: From California, where I came to see and reflect on the End of Mission for the Cassini spacecraft — its so-called Grand Finale. This isn’t about the mission per se, but rather the thinking behind it, how that fits into True’s mission, and how that ties into this week’s Honorary Unsubscribe! In other words, The Bigger Picture.

Podcast 010: Zero Tolerance

In This Episode: No Longer Weird: An obliviot trying to pass a 99-cent “$1 million bill”. And it’s Episode 10: you’re darn right it’s time to do a bit of a rant on zero tolerance! We talk about an older case that was so clearly a case of “Sue ’em!” — that the family did. But it sure wasn’t an easy road, in part because the offending school fought it hard. Show Notes: https://thisistrue.com/podcast10

Podcast 009: We Need Better Heroes

In This Episode: When the people in charge fail our kids. And what, really, is the lesson kids learn when sports gets high priority, but the things that they’re actually in school to learn are cut? There’s a direct connection to this week’s Honorary Unsubscribe here, and we delve into both the school story, and that “awe-inspiring” Honorary Unsubscribe. Show Notes: https://thisistrue.com/podcast9

Podcast 008: A Little Bit Brighter

In This Episode: A “new” term is introduced to be the contrast to “obliviot” — and something else really bright (or is that dim?) from Real Life this week: Randy is at a loss for words trying to describe the total solar eclipse. Show Notes: https://thisistrue.com/podcast8

Podcast 006: The Best of Humanity

In This Episode: While the stories in This is True usually point out the pitfalls of not thinking (or “obliviots doing stupid things”), the Honorary Unsubscribe holds up the best of humanity. This episode not only features a interesting example, but adds some extra details and commentary. Show Notes: https://thisistrue.com/podcast6

Podcast 005: Politics, Religion, Oh! And…

In This Episode: Politics and religion can’t be talked about in polite society? Don’t forget sex (eek!) A new occasional segment, “No Longer Weird” (stories that are too commonplace to be featured as a This is True story anymore). Show Notes: https://thisistrue.com/podcast5
