A Therapist Explains Why the Way We Work is Broken (Ep. 21)

A Therapist Explains Why the Way We Work is Broken (Ep. 21)

The modern workplace can be stressful–to say the least. Most of us work out of necessity, and yet we also have unique motivations that fuel our creativity. What inspires us not just to work but to do our very best? Is there a right or wrong approach to work? What drives highly ambitious or ultra competitive people? To help answer these questions, I’m joined by Eugene Chang and licensed therapist Tim Long. Tim helps us interpret our different approaches to work through the lens of a professional counselor, and sheds light on the hidden forces at play (no pun intended) in how we approach our careers.

Many thanks to Tim and Eugene!!!

How to talk about White Privilege (and still stay friends!) & Tim Keller and the Kuyper Prize (Ep. 19)

How to talk about White Privilege (and still stay friends!) & Tim Keller and the Kuyper Prize (Ep. 19)

White privilege is not an easy topic to talk about. In fact, arguably in certain circles the number one rule about white privilege is you don’t talk about white privilege. Jennifer and Jeremy return to provide a thoughtful, respectful, and personal conversation about racial privilege. What it is, why it’s so hard to talk about, and ways we can move the dialogue forward in a healthy way. We also discuss Princeton Theological Seminary’s recent decision to rescind the Kuyper Prize from Pastor Tim Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian Church.

Thank you Jeremy and Jennifer for another insightful, deeply entertaining conversation! Listeners, let us know what you thought of the show. 🙂

How to be an Ironman (Ep. 16)

WJH? UNSCRIPTED – How to be an Ironman (Ep. 16)

It doesn’t seem humanly possible. Swim 2.4 miles in open water. Bike 112 miles–farther than the distance from Manhattan to Philadelphia. And then, assuming you have any energy left, run a full length marathon, 26.2 miles. All back to back to back, in less than 17 hours. That is the Ironman triathlon—widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world. (And not to be confused with “Iron Man” Tony Stark of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.) Today, I speak with three men who have all completed full length Ironman races and are training for more.

I ask them to do a bit of soul searching–while I do a bit of my own–as they talk about what drives their ambition to compete in this crazy race. They discuss what it takes to finish an Ironman and whether or not it’s fair to describe Ironman training as “selfish.” (Lots of shout outs to significant others in this episode!) We talk about training schedules, logistics, nutrition, and the mental challenges of completing a race. And in a twist, regular contributor—and triathlete in her own right—Jennifer Lee Koh joins us to reveal what it’s like to be an “Ironmate.”

Many thanks to Rob Koh, Jack Chen, and Sam Chung for taking the time to talk and reflect! Sam, Jack, and Rob are all part of the Trinity Endurance Club or TEC—a group that Sam started to build and foster a community of fitness fans. This was such a fun conversation, and I am so inspired by your stories!

Thanks for listening!

The Future of Evangelical Christianity (is it DOOMED?) and the Fight over Sanctuary Cities – WJH Unscripted (Ep. 13)

Room2

WJH? UNSCRIPTED – The Future of Evangelical Christianity (is it DOOMED?) and the Fight over Sanctuary Cities (Ep. 13)

We are HOURS away from the inauguration of President Donald Trump and I am THRILLED to have Jeremy Weese on the show. And even more good news, regular contributor Jennifer Lee Koh is back. We didn’t scare her away! 🙂

We take a deep dive into why white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump in such large numbers and why Jeremy thinks evangelicals “don’t know how to vote.” Jennifer explains what sanctuary cities are and we discuss the looming battle between federal and local governments over immigration. Thank you so much Jennifer and Jeremy for coming by! Enjoy the show!

Post-Tiger Parenting in the Age of President Trump (Ep. 8)

WHAT JUST HAPPENED? – Episode 8: WJH UNSCRIPTED: Post-Tiger Parenting in the Age of President Trump

When I first started podcasting, I had initially envisioned a debate and discussion type format with regular contributors, along the lines of Slate’s Political Gabfest. That idea eventually evolved into the “storytelling” format I use for regular episodes. But I finally had the opportunity to try the gabfest format after my friends Jennifer Lee Koh and Grace Ong agreed to join me for a conversation I’m calling “Post-Tiger Parenting in the Age of President Trump.” This was a really fun and interesting discussion and I hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much to Grace and Jennifer for playing along! 🙂

There will be more content coming to the podcast in the forthcoming weeks, including a full more “traditional” episode as well as my interview with an inspirational speaker.
