Our Land of Rustics // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY

What does it mean to be an American? It's not a concept that we've really defined, but we have a history that helps us begin to piece together the roots of Americanism. In this episode I talk about our rustic heritage, using a cool story from history, and how US made brands like Origin USA are helping restore the American story of industry and creative independence.

Healing the Past // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY

You've likely seen it on movies: A man sits down with his therapist and is walked through his past memories in order to bring closure to his emotional trauma. However, this can be misleading as it is not necessary to remember the past in order to heal it. While a helpful tool, dredging up old memories simply helps us access emotions that we have not learned to process in a mature manner.

Why Men Pick on Each Other // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY

It's inevitable. When a group of men get together and they begin to feel a bit of ease around one another, they will pick on each other. Some guys relish in this, others can't stand it.

When I hit 230lbs, I knew I had to make a change. I'm no fitness model, but I've been able to maintain a healthy weight for well over a decade. Fads are fun, but if you want to make a long term difference, you've got to change your mindset about yourself, your relationship with food, and your lifestyle will follow.

The Reverse Hierarch of Needs // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY

We are at a time when many of the basic needs have been met, but it feels rather artificial to many men. We've lost a direct connection in providing for our fundamentals and it can lead to anxiety and unsureness for us as we seek to better ourselves.
