Episode 7

May 21, 2017

Justin and Matt just finished their workout before the episode so we chat fitness for a good bit. We talk about the importance of listening to our bodies. This includes both our physical selves and also the energy and emotions within us. As teachers and facilitators, we discuss planning or not planning for each gig. As people who share content online we talk dealing with negativity and knowing the difference between possible constructive criticism and a troll. We finish again with a question from the CC community about bouncing back from setbacks and bad days.

Episode 6

May 14, 2017

Matt goes in depth about his US tour, including the unfortunate passing of his student. We talk about death and how it can be the ultimate motivator for making the most of our time here. Jordan calls bullshit on “masculinity” in our culture which somehow leads us to balancing downtime and productivity when not having a 9-5. We then answer a question from one of our community members about pivoting when faced with a major setback.

Episode 5

May 7, 2017

Recorded the day after Matt returned from his US Spring 2017 tour, Jordan and Justin share their experience after attending Periphery's hometown show. We share why this podcast began and the steps we took to publish Episode 1. With this in mind we go deep on resistance and fear and how to strike the balance between planning and execution. This leads us to the importance of expanding one's self awareness...even when it's hard. Deep shit, indeed.

April 30, 2017

We discuss the social dynamics between artists and fans and go deep into strategies for connecting with others in business and life. Recorded just before Periphery's 2017 Spring US tour, Matt discusses his daily routine when on the road and why breakfast is his meal of the day. We start and end with Matt geeking about the new “It” trailer. (Justin's intrigued. Jordan's asleep.)

Episode 3

April 23, 2017

We were all challenged by Matt in Episode 2 to try his exercise answering the question, "What do I want to do with my life?" This week we report back in this exercise of self awareness and goal setting. We also spend the first half of this episode discussing how we create boundaries between our personal needs and business responsibilities. And how's this for bookends...we end with our childhood "show and tell" stories and start with proper technique for taking a shit.

Jeff Holcomb is well on his way to becoming the real "most interesting man in the world" and Matt took some time out on tour to interview him. Jeff is Periphery's lighting director, but he's also a talented director, musician, out-doors-man, traveler, and professional risk taker.
