The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  We have a very important social issue in our culture today that receives little press, or… really… any kind of attention… Except to those in the middle of it: Care for our Aging population. Especially those with that require medical, professional or just more regular personal attention. On today’s show we have gerontologist and dedicated advocate of society’s disenfranchised, Dr Jacque DuPont. Jacque is so uniquely gifted. She demonstrates that rare combination of superior intelligence with an overwhelming heart of compassion. On this episode of the Next Chapter with...

#186 Terry Hershey: Talking to Ourselves show art #186 Terry Hershey: Talking to Ourselves

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today Terry Hershey and I explore one possible reason that America is a radically divided country. And each side is firmly convinced that they are right, as each will cite “supposed factual information” in support of their beliefs. But… information itself is not the problem. It’s about the source of our information. One of the big reasons for our strong battle lines just may be that our information is too biased. We tend to rely only on information that supports the stance we have already agreed upon. Therefore we end up talking to ourselves. Is a middle ground even...

From the Archives Jenn Bork: From the Archives Jenn Bork: "Feeling" Fully Alive

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today I really look forward to the show, not so much because of the fascinating content but more because of our ultra fascinating guest… my dear, dear brilliant friend, Jennifer Bork. Now, Jenn comes to us with no breathtaking resume, has authored no books, has no blog, podcast or business that places her atop the so-called social scale of that which most Americans secretly strive for. Instead, Jenn Bork is a wife of Jon Bork, mother of two amazing children August and Tessa, a Facebook Make up guru, and a gym and boxing fanatic … but mostly Jennifer is a woman with as much...

#184 Lindsay Davis on Life: A Burning Ball of Desire show art #184 Lindsay Davis on Life: A Burning Ball of Desire

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  On our show with Lindsay Davis today we explore the very core of human existence. I think we can best sum it up with the words of psychologist Phil Sutherland, “As human beings, before we are anything else, we are a “burning ball of desire.” Lindsay and I probe the ROLE of burning desire in every single move we make. We ARE desire. We express desire. Without desire we are barely more than automatons. But with desire we are hungry. We are fruitful. And we can find extraordinary pleasure and productivity in life. And why should our lives NOT be pleasurable and productive?...

#183 Jamie Lerner Self-Care: If You Don’t, Who Will? show art #183 Jamie Lerner Self-Care: If You Don’t, Who Will?

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today we have an important discussion with therapist Jamie Lerner on the value of taking care of yourself. Our thesis is this: if you don’t exercise intentional care for yourself, you will be absolutely no good to anyone else. On this show Jamie and I are keenly interested in the details of self-care, both emotionally and tangibly: What exactly can you do on a regular basis to build your own emotional bank account so that you have plenty to give to others. A bit of background on Jamie Lerner: After earning her MSW at Loyola University, Jamie Lerner spent several years in...

#182 Terry Hershey: Your Truth is What You Honor show art #182 Terry Hershey: Your Truth is What You Honor

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  The episode today is certainly the most philosophical shows we have ever done. As you will quickly discover, Terry Hershey and I do what I am fond of saying: “we go down deep, and stay down long.”  Here’s the question: Do you believe something because, it is True, or is something True because you believe it?  Is truth a matter of choice? Is there substance to the thought that… truth is simply a matter of whatever one chooses to believe? That is the question Terry and I ponder over the next hour. We had great fun and I hope you find your own truth in this...

#181 Charlie: How Patience Suffers from Selfishness show art #181 Charlie: How Patience Suffers from Selfishness

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  On the show today Producer Paul and I do a deep dive into the vastly ignored virtue of Patience. Typically, we just don’t do well with being patient. I’m reminded of the prayer, “Lord, give me patience; I need it now!” An interesting discovery in the midst my conversation with Paul was that perhaps the greatest obstacle to patience… is our natural proclivity for… selfishness. We fall into that ever so annoying trap of thinking that life is all about me. What I want (or perhaps feel that I need) almost always takes precedence over anything else. I hope you enjoy...

#180 Terry Hershey:  In Awe in the Ordinary show art #180 Terry Hershey: In Awe in the Ordinary

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  I really needed this show today for my personal sanity. As you may know, I am hooked on the idea of awe and wonder. Today Terry Hershey and I talk about finding awe in the ordinary. Typically, the idea of awe seems to be most often restricted to some sort of event: like travel or museums. But in these days of Covid, travel and museums are no longer available. Yet, for the keen mind, awareness of the awe in the ordinary everyday aspects of our lives can easily be discovered. I really enjoyed this discussion with Terry. He truly “get’s” awe in ordinary. It was Einstein...

#179 Rand Sperry: The Disappearance of the Nuclear Family show art #179 Rand Sperry: The Disappearance of the Nuclear Family

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  This podcast is a thought-provoking examination on The Disappearance of the Nuclear Family. Our guest, Rand Sperry, above all else, is a dedicated family man. And in this show discuss we devote the entire second half to the value and need for family unity. In this time of vapid individualism, it seems we have put all our eggs in the “what’s in it for me” basket. So Paul, How about what’s in it for us? Rand Sperry gets very personal about his all-out commitment to his family of 6 children and 10 grandkids. And oh… Rand also happens to be a high profile CEO known...

This is a continuation of last week’s interview: Part 2 of my conversation with a man I have admired for years. Daniel Klein. Daniel is the author of the book I regularly refer to: Travels with Epicurus.

Our last conversation just didn’t cover enough material, so we did a second interview.

In this episode we talk more about the meaning of life for daily living, the use of “thought experiments”, and how the protected use of psychedelics help Danny understand the philosophy of life.
