EP 44 | Not That Kind Of Love w/Jonah Lehrer

EBefore Jonah sat down and wrote A Book About Love he thought he’d never write again. He was at rock bottom.

And yet, he was in the midst of experiencing a type of love that we don’t normally see in the movies. The type of love that has changed the course of this podcast forever. Tune in to hear All About Love.

EP 43 | Proving People Right w/Strauss Mann

E“10 yrs ago, I met a kid called Strauss. He was little, wise and a complete rascal. One day, he told me he wanted to become a pro hockey player. I replied with a cheap cliche line, something like, 'if you work hard anything can happen'. He wasn't impressed. He said that I had no idea what that would take. I didn’t. But he did. Now he’s 21, a sophomore at University of Michigan playing D1 hockey and inspiring me everyday. Tune in to this week's episode to hear what it takes.” - Essie.

EP 41 | A Self Declared Playboy w/Leo Nguyen

EHe may approach dating casually, but when things go wrong in the bedroom maybe it’s a sign for something greater in life. In this episode Es and Grace sit down with former guest Leo to casually chat about casual sex, leaving us wondering “how comfortable are we with this?” In retrospect, we can all say we’d do things differently...and Leo is calling himself out on his own actions. Maybe he’ll change, maybe he won’t. But acknowledging the issue is half the battle.

EP 40 | Now, I'm Listening w/ Yahdon Israel

EIt’ll be years until he learns how to truly hear people, especially women...but mostly himself. Raised as a boy that should be seen and not heard, Yahdon did a lot of listening. And now, he sits down with us to discuss how he’s used his writing to better understand the terms for which society set for him vs the ones he’s trying to set for himself. And now, it’s our turn to truly listen to him...and maybe help us better understand ourselves. Yahdon Israel is a writer, college professor and creator of Literaryswag, a cultural movement that intersects literature and fashion to make books cool. Visit yahdonisrael.com to learn more. Please know this conversation was recorded in the Summer of 2018
