Show Notes

Soccer pro (Portland Thorns, Western Sydney Wanderers, Sky Blue FC) and performance coach Kendall Johnson shares why she really came on the Podcast and then dives into her five-year journey overcoming a concussion.

Kendal discusses the untapped potential in athletes in the emotional and spiritual space and society's pressure to listen to others instead of what your body is telling you. She talks about what makes Sydney so special to her and what playing in Portland's massive crowds was like.

Jason and Chris ask Kendall about what's next for her, and she talks about somatic work and her "come forward." She discusses how she uses energy more intentionally and productively in her workouts, now being her "own guru."

Increasing Life with Christy Turlington-Pt.2, Ep.29

Chris, Jason, and Christy pick up where they left off and somehow transition from race inequities in maternal care to noir movies in Nordic countries.  Christy describes the good news of how the current Presidential administration is approaching maternal healthcare and takes on a myth to debunk before describing Every Mother Counts' "special sauce."  Then the three talk about coming out of the pandemic and some of the good things that come with them, including Christy going to a baseball game to see Chris's favorite team, the San Francisco Giants. Chris and Jason catch up after the interview, befuddled by the realization that Maternal health was such a problem in the first place. Then the two rant about the problems with guns in America and gambling in Australia. Chris shares some Good News and the two discuss the next episode with Doug Keene.   MealPass inquiries, please contact Jason Graham-Nye at [email protected] ...

Jason & Chris have a conversation with musician and creative coach Carrie Akre who fronted the bands Hammerbox and Goodness and then contributed on vocals to the Rockfords with Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and went on to a solo career. She has opened for Iggy Pop, Oasis, & Pearl Jam.   Jason presses Carrie for stories from Seattle's crazy music scene in the 1990s, and Chris inquires about what subcomponents of being a musician are soul-filling and what is soul-killing--stumbling into a story about Elliot Smith and musicians who have "that thing."   Then the three get into discussing introspection, surrender, and life direction to improve creativity and performance.   Carrie can be found at https://www.carrieakrecreative.com/, and her Podcast is Between You and I.   ...
