“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

― Leo Buscaglia

“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.”
― Ernest Hemingway

There are downsides to multitasking; however, I find that filling some of the spaces in our daily routines with things that make our gears turn rather than simply placate our boredom  or entertain us, is a great way to multitask during workouts, long drives or empty evenings.

Stations I highly recommend:


Waking Up with Sam Harris

Revisionist History with Malcolm Gladwell


TED Radio Hour

Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting

NPR Fresh Air

Outside Podcast

Beth-El Mennonite Church Sermon Recordings
