The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  I’m really interested in how our show evolves today, because I think today’s topic may be the most challenging we have ever discussed. What we are going to talk about is something that money can’t buy, translates into all languages, and yet it takes enormous desire, time and discipline to cultivate. And it may be the most important measure of who we are in a free society. And that is… the subject of Character. My fear is that accomplishments, acquisitions and blatant consumerism have blinded us to that which really matters. It’s not about what we have; it’s about...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today I plan to dedicate our show to an unsung but essential topic: I want to discuss the potential shortcomings related to economic and social aid to the Developing World, (or in old terms, 3rd World countries). Basically, the question is this: is your investment in the poor and disenfranchised in the Developing World being administrated with the longer term needs of communities being considered, or… is it about short term walk away money? My guest, Darrel Larson, has vast philanthropic experience in several foreign countries, including Fiji, the Philippines and several...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  I think the show today show is so timely for June of 2020. Not only is the entire world continuing to contend with the limitations and restrictions of a pandemic, we in the US also find ourselves in a time that calls for deep reflection, both personal and social. Our show today is all about deep personal reflection. I so look forward to chatting with successful entrepreneur Ashley Stanley about the kinds of mindsets and beliefs that keep us stuck in our own sandbox. The intent of the show today is to uncover some of our own Limiting Beliefs. Each of us possesses unique...

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...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  According to my calculations at the time of this recording on May 27, 2020, we are in our 11th week of quarantine. How have you managed in the disconcerting time? You know for me, this time has provided, or forced, an opportunity a deep philosophical thought. For instance I have been reading Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, Viktor Frankl and TS Eliot. Whew! I think I’m in the mood for the calamities of a pleasant John Grisham novel. Today, Paul, I’d like to initiate a two-week series on Thoughts in Quarantine, instead of Conversations in Quarantine. I’d like to begin with the...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  You know for the last couple of weeks I seem to have focused a lot energy on this idea of Navigating with No Map. Today I plan to kinda continue with that thought but with an entirely different take, which is about: “When to Go with Your Gut.” I’m a “gut guy.” I believe that humans have millions of years of evolution updating our knowledge of the role of intuition in decision-making. It has only been since the industrial revolution that we have begun to use numbers and analyses as fundamental guidelines for our significant choices in life. Although such a move has...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes Hey Paul, did you realize that when this show goes live we will have been in some kind of quarantine for 10-12 weeks? Now, for those few of us that are old and introverted, this really hasn’t been all that difficult. But I think of many others… people with kids, or couples in relationships that are not so good or, worse, what about those tragic occurrences of abusive homes. Man… I can’t imagine. My heart genuinely goes out… But, on the other hand, I think for the majority of us, this time of quarantine is more like a gross inconvenience than any thing else. Sure I miss my...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes In keeping with the intentions of our current series “Conversations in Quarantine,” it has been at least one year since our guest today and I have met face to face… and he lives within 10 miles of me. I guess that tells you about friendships with an introvert. It’s not that we don’t like people. We just don’t want to wear out our welcome. I have been trying to get today’s guest on the show since our inception. Well, here we are 150 episodes in, and we finally have with us, Glenn Parrish—the guy I like to refer to as “the Smartest Man I Know.” Glenn comes to us...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Paul, I am really excited to introduce our listeners to my friend, and philanthropic colleague, Graham Hodgetts. Graham’s possesses an impressive resume as a successful engineer, scientist, entrepreneur, and devoted philanthropist. His Masters Degree in Engineering was earned from Crayton Tech in the UK, where Graham was born. Now, I first met Graham in 2017 in Uganda where his company was drilling water wells for Wells of Life, the NGO I work with. Graham is the co-founder and president of a company named CEED, an acronym for Christian East African and Equatorial Economic...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  The show today is being recorded on April 22, 2020, and we’re more than 5 weeks into our California state-wide quarantine in which most of us are expected to stay at home, going out only for food or what’s being called “essential” needs. Basically, it’s a never-ending Home Alone or Ground Hog Day movie. Now, today we continue with the 4th edition of “Conversations in Quarantine” in which I call an old friend I have not spoken with for months or years even, as was last episode with Caitlyn Doemner who I hadn’t talked to in a decade. Today’s conversation is...

Show Notes 

For the last three shows I have attempted to discover the basic tenets of atheism, theism and a form of Hallucinogenic Spirituality, all in an effort to understand how people approach their inner and outer lives.

After the three shows aired Paul asked a handful of people their impressions of the show. The overwhelming response was: we just don’t really care at all about religion or politics—both are so messed up. 

So Paul and I at the last minute decided to take on this subject, no notes, no plan. Except: to talk about why so many people are not interested in voting, declaring party affiliation and even more important the subject of God. 

The result was a fascinating discussion. I hope you enjoy.
