Reinventing City Hall with New York City Mayoral Candidate, Art Chang-Ep.19

Chris and Jason celebrate the "Friend of the Lab" title and lament the pain involved in repeatedly delivering a poor punch line (or watching someone else do so). Chris quizzes Jason over the five most full democracies and the five most authoritarian regimes based on five criteria. Then the two interview New York City mayoral candidate, Art Chang. Art talks about why he's running and spells out some specific systemic changes he plans to make to avoid past mistakes and push the city into the 21st century technologically.  Art talks about his work for the last four mayors and his work in organizational change with JP Morgan Chase, as well as the importance of empathy in the process of making the city work for everyone.

Listening to Ourselves with Musician and Coach Carrie Akre-Ep.26

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.   ...

Comedy & Authenticity with Zane Lamprey, Part 1-Ep.17

The show gets off to a rough but hilarious start. Zane explains how he balances being a TV show host for Thee Sheets and Four Sheets, the head of an environmentally friendly clothing company, and getting ready for a nationwide stand-up comedy tour. Zane goes deep about how to stay real without coming on too strong with your personal beliefs (except that if you hate trees, Zane thinks you should go to hell right now). Chris tells Zane he refers to him as the "Anthony Bourdain of Drinking," and Zane shares how he approves and how Bourdain was a mentor to him, along with a few stories. The two and Zane talk about authenticity and its importance in all of Zane's endeavors. This leads to Zane talking about his preparations for his comedy performance and some lousy advice he got along the way. Jason gives Zane a "great" grade for his episode of Chug in Sydney because he gets to real Aussies and maybe taught them a thing or two. Then the three get into the inevitable discussion of the cultural difference between Americans and Australians. ...
