Nonprofit Organizations (NPO) with Mickey Desai

Nonprofit Organizations (NPO) with Mickey Desai
Did you know that legally speaking: Only one group of individuals in a Non Profit Organization cannot make a profit? That seems wrong, but it's just one of the many things which surprised me in talking to our expert today. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts. Sorry for the delay in episode from Monday to Tuesday, my original episode had some major audio problems that require more attention. My guest today is Mickey Desai. Mickey is a podcaster and non profit expert who has served on several board of directors, and now gives advice to those who are working in or entering the space. I definitely came away from this one with a whole new view on just how NPOs function, and the challenges some  of them face. ( Www.MagicMind.Com/JustDumb20 ) ( Www.NonProfitSnapshot.Com ) ( Www.NonProfitSnapcast.Com ) Let's work for free... maybe. It seems so unusual that a board member of a potentially large company cannot get paid, but I feel like it has to be that way in order to keep any honesty in the system. In other news, July is rolling onward and the rankings have updated a little: 1. The United States, Still led by New York, Texas, and Oregon. 2. England of the United Kingdom, taking back the number 2 spot. 3. Canada, with British Columbia closing in on the throne-holding Ontario. 4. Australia, with New South Wales holding a lead, and Victoria bumping the country up a spot. 5. Ghana, carefully holding a lead over New Zealand.

Happiness with Teresa Greco
Would you say you're in the top 30% of happy people, the bottom 20% of unhappy people, or somewhere in that middle 50%? Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Teresa Greco. Teresa is a woman of many careers from magazines to counseling, with a heartfelt specialization in helping people to find happiness. She's here today to show how she found her way from the bottom 20 to the top 30, and what that did for her life.

I'm thankful that my equipment's back to working condition, I'm glad that the weather here has been so warm lately, and I'm grateful for each of you that listens to this show. Quick break now so you can do yours... Hopefully you did it and I'm not just Dora talking to the silent room. In other news, July is rolling forward and the rankings have updated a little: 1. The United States, now led by New York, Texas, and Oregon. 2. Canada, with Ontario a crazy distance out front. 3. England of the United Kingdom. 4. Ghana. Who have quickly found themselves top 5 regulars. 5. Australia, with New South Wales barely keeping them on the board.

Safely Saving and Investing with Andrew Parrillo

Safely Saving and Investing with Andrew Parrillo
Some people might squirrel away cash in their sock drawer or mattress, or even a freezer if you just moved to the big city. But most people keep the bulk of their hard earned money in either savings or checking accounts. All of these have the same issue however: They don't do anything to protect you from inflation. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts. My guest today is Andrew Parrillo. Andrew is an investment advisor with about five decades of experience, and while this episode shouldn't be considered advice for legal reasons: it is absolutely chalk full of invaluable information. Because we're trying to break down really technical details, it can get a little dry. But make no mistake, I understand money and investing more from this interview than probably any other I've done. Don't be afraid to take notes if you've got free hand. ( Www.MagicMind.Com/JustDumb20 or use code: JustDumb20 ) ( https://a.co/d/080oTm4T will take you to: Www.Amazon.Com "Beat the Wealth Management Hustle" ) Let's make money by saving money! Get in on this slice of nirvana by going to: Www.MagicMind.Com/JustDumb20 or entering the code JustDumb20 for up to 48% of your first subscription or 20% off any order.  It's wild to think that 1% could make such a difference, but even paying that 1% to gain an additional 5% a year would be well worth it versus a savings account that earns you a dollar a year (or less). In other news, July is upon us and the rankings are all new: 1. The United States, now led by Texas, Illinois, and Virginia. 2. Canada, with Ontario taking an early lead. 3. Australia, with Victoria just barely holding out over New South Wales and Queensland. 4. Ghana. Who have quickly found themselves top 5 regulars. 5. England, almost losing their spot to Ireland.

Life with Autism with Sam Mitchell
So much of this show's audience has been curious about autism, and I'm delighted to bring an expert today who has grown up with autism first hand. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Sam Mitchell.

( Https://MagicMind.Com/JustDumb20 Use code: JustDumb20 ) ( Www.AutismRocksAndRolls.Com ) Let's not say we need a cure. In other news, June's rankings have not changed a whole lot: 1.

Cupping and More with Tom Ingegno

Cupping and More with Tom Ingegno
Have you ever seen anyone with perfectly circular bruises out in public? It might be from a softball, or maybe some freak accident with a big glass orb; but most likely: It's from a medical practice called "Cupping". Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Dr. Tom Ingegno. Tom is a super fun guy with over two decades of experience in various medical practices that date  back thousands of years. We talk about all the classic East Asian Medicine practices a little, but I was fascinated coming into this with the  practice of cupping. I had no idea it was something you could do at home for really cheap while still being effective. Having literally written the book on cupping, Tom set me straight and even steered me to buy a set of my own. I love them and have found incredible relief in a way I never imagined possible. ( Www.CharmCityIntegrative.Com ) ( Www.TheCuppingBook.Com ) ( https://a.co/d/2KDW6Hb will take you to: Www.Amazon.Com "The Cupping Book" ) Let's get some weird shaped marks! As a follow up to the episode, I did in fact buy my own kit for about 20 bucks. It  has been really easy to use and absolutely helpful for me. I thought the bruises it leaves behind would be uncomfortable, but I actually barely even feel them. Give it a shot if you're feeling curious like I was. In other news, June's rankings are updated: 1. The United States, led by Virginia, New York, and California. 2. England of the UK. Taking back the spot from Scotland. 3. Australia, with New South Wales just holding on over Queensland. 4. Canada, with Alberta now leading the provinces. 5. Ghana. Followed closely by Ireland. That's it for this week!

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) with Danu Morrigan
Jun 10 2024
Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) with Danu Morrigan
Narcissus was born in Ancient Greece, and was one day warned that he would live a long life as long as 'he never knows himself.' As he reached his teenage years, the handsome youth never found anyone that could pull his heartstrings, instead, he left in his wake a long trail of distressed and broken-hearted maidens. Then, one day, he chanced to see his own reflection in a pool of water and, thus, discovered the ultimate  in unrequited love and fell in love with himself. Naturally, this one-way relationship went nowhere, and Narcissus, unable to draw himself away from the pool, pined away in despair until he finally died of thirst and starvation. Immortality, at least of a kind, was assured, though, when his body turned into the flowers which, thereafter, bore his name. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Danu Morrigan. We've all met that person who is a little to self-absorbed. The world must revolve around them, whether they have to cry or scream or be silent to get their way. But what exactly is wrong with them? Danu is here today to teach us all about the sneaky Narcissistic Personality Disorder or NPD. She'll tell us what it is, what it means, what it's like to be raised by someone with it, and ultimately how to go no contact. It's a far cry from the fable of Narcissus who was so entranced by his own beauty that he died, but in some ways that story still feels kind of accurate. ( Www.DaughtersOfNarcissisticMothers.Com ) ( https://a.co/d/8AV1hoI will take you to: Www.Amazon.Com "How to go no contact with your narcissistic mother" ) Let's not be self absorbed people! Do you know any narcissists? I've certainly known a few, and it makes me wonder if I went no contact far later than I should have. Tell me your experience and maybe we'll have successfully learned together! In other news, June is officially here and the rankings are all new: 1. The United States, led by New York, New Jersey, and California. 2. Australia, with New South Wales leading them to the number 2 spot. 3. Scotland of the UK. That's certainly a shake up. 4. Ghana. Who did end up beating South Korea last month. 5. Canada, with Ontario barely keeping them in the top 5. That's it for this week! Have a great week, a great weekend, and I'll see you all back here next week for another new episode!

Vitamin P with Corey Poirier

Vitamin P with Corey Poirier
What is the thing you would do if money wasn't an issue? I know that's an unusual way to lead in an episode, but I'm genuinely curious. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Corey Poirier. Corey is the founder of BLU Talks, and a very successful speaker; not to mention a New York Times best selling author. He's here today to share what he found when he embarked on following his passion. This "Vitamin P" as he calls it is the real secret to getting through the horror show that is life. And it might not end up being your purpose, but it's a strong shove in the right direction. ( Www.ThisIsTheBook.Com ) ( Www.Amazon.Com "The Enlightened Passenger" ) Let's take our vitamin P! Feel free to share with me what you love doing, especially now that the interview is over and you have heard how much I love to hear from all of you out there in the audience. In other news, May is just about over and the rankings are mostly final in this last week: 1. The United States, now led by California, Oregon, and New York. 2. England of the UK. 3. Australia, with New South Wales back out front! 4. Canada, barely led by Ontario! 5. South Korea, with Ghana only ONE listener behind. That's anyone's race. That's it for this week!

Ayurveda with Ananta Ripa Ajmera

Ayurveda with Ananta Ripa Ajmera
I can't blame you if you've never heard of Ayurveda. I certainly wasn't aware of it when our expert today approached me for the show. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Ananta Ripa Ajmera. Ananta is here today to teach us things that humans have known for thousands of years. The problem is that we've been overwriting a lot of this old, hard earned knowledge with new trends and fads that don't actually serve to help us as much as they hurt us. I was quite surprised by a lot of what used to be considered common sense, which is never a good sign. And I'm guilty of doing quite a few of the bad things she points out. While her background definitely has a spiritual inclination, you'll likely find a lot of universal advice about how to grow and better yourself that doesn't have any direct connection to one philosophy or religion. We'll talk about how it can help with everything from insomnia to eating disorders. ( Www.AnantaRipaAjmera.Com ) ( Www.Amazon.Com "Way of the Goddess" ) Let's relearn old knowledge! There are so many people on so many journeys out there, that it can be easy to sidetrack yourselves. I hope the advice in this episode helps someone to better find their footing and return to their own path. In other news, May is just over halfway done and the rankings have mostly stabilized since last week: 1. The United States, now led by California, Oregon, and New York. 2. England of the UK. 3. Australia, with Victoria taking the lead from New South Wales! 4. South Korea. 5. Canada, now led by Ontario! That's it for this week!

Bad Bosses with Jennifer Nash

Bad Bosses with Jennifer Nash
We all love to trash talk bad bosses, but when I asked people what they thought the worst traits in a boss were: I didn't expect to get flooded with responses. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Dr. Jennifer Nash. Jennifer and I were both sick at the time of recording and decided to make the most of it, using her two decades of experience as a leadership coach to break down what makes a person a bad leader. With a whole host of responses from listeners just like you, we had no shortage of examples. But if you think it's all goofs, think again as we drop nuggets like this: "Those employees were 50% more likely to have a heart attack or die of a stroke." Today's episode is great for venting if you have a subpar boss. Make a game of it and see how many points your leaders earn on the Just Dumb Enough survey. Hopefully any of you listening to this that are leaders, recognize a few things you can work on to be better. ( Www.DrJenniferNash.Com ) ( Www.Amazon.Com "Be Human, Lead Human" ) Let's hope we don't get fired after this! I hope you've enjoyed the boss bashing bonanza without being left feeling hopeless. Everything we've discussed today can be fixed, if the leader in question has a desire to fix it. In other news, the May rankings have changed just a bit since last week: 1. The United States, still led by California, Georgia, and Oregon. 2. England of the UK. 3. Australia, with New South Wales holding the lead! 4. South Korea. 5. Canada, returning the favor from last week and bumping Ghana off the list! That's it for this week! Have a great week, a great weekend, and I'll see you all back here next week for another new episode!

Polyglot Means Multilingual with Joel Dubin
I'm sure that no matter where we are from, or where we live, we like to consider our place to be pretty diverse. Well my expert today is coming  from an area where just his part of town is home to 60 languages! And he surprisingly speaks many of them quite well. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts. My guest today is Joel Dubin. Joel is a Polyglot, meaning he speaks many languages. In a world where many people consider learning a second  language to be challenging, Joel feels like a fish in water using multiple languages every day of his life. He's here to shed some light on the  practices he has found success with, as well as some of the things that might impede our progress when we endeavor to learn a new way to speak. ( Www.Twitter.Com/DubinsLanguages ) ( Www.Amazon.Com "Highly Dysfunctional Companies" ) Lass uns noch viel mehr Sprachen Sprechen! That is to say: Let's speak many more languages. I love languages so so much. If only I was better at speaking any of them! But still, I'd love to hear all of your complaints about either your  own native language, or languages you've learned. In other news, May has begun and the rankings have shaken up a bit from the norm: 1. The United States, now led by California, Georgia, and Oregon. 2. South Korea! This is awesome and I'm so glad to see more listeners coming from that area! 3. England of the UK. 4. Australia, with New South Wales taking an early lead! 5. Ghana, bumping Canada clean off the list! That's it for this week! Have a great week, a great weekend, and I'll see you all back here next week for another new episode!

The SAT and Free Money with Shaan Patel
Graduating from college generally comes with the payoff of earning more money in a career that you actually want, but the cost is so high that some never really consider it. Well, would you reconsider it if I told you that there was a free money just sitting on the table for you? Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Shaan Patel. Dr. Patel is the Founder and CEO of PrepExpert.Com. He came from humble beginnings: Studying for the SATs in a public library because it was free. After a perfect SAT score, he went on to research the ways in which other students could achieve the success he had found. Now he helps parents and students discover that college doesn't have to be expensive if you just figure out the system. If that's not enough evidence to believe in him, you should also know that he is business partners with Mark Cuban. ( Www.PrepExpert.Com ) ( Www.Amazon.Com "Prep Expert" ) Let's go to college for free! I really hope someone discovers that they can go to school because of this episode.

You are codependent. I'm sorry. I know that's not easy to hear, but it's the truth. And I'd rather you knew now, than waiting until you feel you have no way out. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Sarah Michaud. Dr. Michaud knows codependency better than anyone, having lived it, lived with it, and worked against it.

Making AI Work For You with Philip Blackett
I know we've done a couple AI episodes in a couple months, which is more consistent than most topics come up on this show, but they have each had a very different spin. And today's is no different, expanding on the possibilities of this ever growing technology to maybe earn you a raise. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Philip Blackett. Philip is the author of a new book, Future-Proof, that leverages AI to better your life. He's here to talk a bit about what AI can do, what that means for you, and how it can help secure your job regardless of the turbulence cause by machine learning programs. And make no mistake, there are massive repercussions. Plans to build a billion dollar movie studio are being scrapped after seeing the recent progress. Not to mention the layoffs major companies in all sectors are undergoing after seeing how AI can effect their bottom line. ( Www.PhilipBlackett.Com ) ( Www.Amazon.Com "Philip Blackett Future-Proof" ) Let's work smarter, not harder! April 15th, 2025. That's the one year mark from this episodes publish date. If you're listening to this after that date, I'll freely admit that I can't imagine what AI has grown to at this point. But I'm interested to see the things it will allow us to do that were previously out of reach. In other news, April rankings have changed very little since last week: 1. The United States, now led by New York, Oregon, and Texas. 2. England of the UK. 3. Australia, with Victoria almost being overrun by everyone! 4. Canada, with Ontario holding it's place at the top. 5. Ghana, just barely beating Ireland. That's it for this week!

Child Welfare with Lance Hillsinger
Apr 8 2024
Child Welfare with Lance Hillsinger
I think that I've only ever heard Child Protective Services mentioned in a scary context. Like: "CPS is going to come take your kids!" So when my expert today reached out to me, I couldn't wait to get the real scoop. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Lance Hillsinger. Lance retired after 34 years in Child Welfare. He's here to breakdown what child welfare does, what they don't do, and ways the system can improve. There are certainly some very surprising bits tucked away in this brief interview, like this: (audio only teaser) ( Www.LanceHillsinger.Net ) Let's foster better homes. Being a foster home must be a mix of stressful and rewarding. I'd love to have someone on who has some time into it, if anyone listening wants to come on the show. In other news, April rankings have shuffled a bit since last week: 1. The United States, now led by New York, California, and Illinois. 2. England of the UK. 3. Australia, with Victoria just barely staying above the South. 4. Canada, with Ontario taking over. 5. Ireland. Coming back strong for another month. That's it for this week!

The Best Stress with Matt Soule

The Best Stress with Matt Soule
It's strange to think that your path towards making stress work for you would start with a cold shower. But that immediate response to cold water is actually a very beneficial experience. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Matt Soule. Matt is so many things, but one of his most interesting careers is as a trainer of the Wim Hof method. You've probably seen videos of these people running around what looks like the arctic in nothing but their underwear, jumping into below freezing water like it doesn't even bother them. I don't know about you, but that sounds incredibly stressful to me! Yet if you ask Matt, it's easily one of the best things you could ever do to get your mind into a much better place. ( Www.StressParadox.Com ) Let's get cold! It's really striking how too much of a good thing causes us to embrace way more stress than necessary. So I'm going to challenge people in a bit different direction this time. Do five minutes less exercise. If you're already doing zero, you know you need to change, but if you're doing an hour? Do five minutes less. I'm challenging you to stop early. Then maybe tomorrow you realize you feel better because you didn't overdo it so much. Find a happy medium between doing the most you can do, and not doing it at all. This is the first day of April so the rankings are a little unusual: 1. The United States, led by Colorado, New Mexico, and Louisiana. 2. Australia, with Victoria at an early lead. 3. England of the UK. 4. Ghana. Welcome to the top 5. 5. Canada, with Quebec out front.

Rental Property Investments with Janet Tonkins

Rental Property Investments with Janet Tonkins
I don't know that I have the right temperament to be a landlord. I'm probably too empathetic and forgiving to be making my living off of other people struggling to maintain a place to live. But, according to my expert today, it turns out that I might just be coming at it from the wrong angle. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Janet Tonkins. Janet is known as the "Cash Flow Diva". She is a Real Estate Developer, Investor, and Hard Money Lender with over 100 properties across multiple states. She's with us today to help others find financial freedom through one of the more difficult seeming avenues: Rental Properties. ( Www.TheCashFlowDiva.Com ) ( Email: Janet@TheCashFlowDiva.Com ) Let's learn real estate! It's definitely more dicey than I thought with the rules and penalties, but also seems like it carries a lot more power for growth on both sides of the situation... if you handle it correctly. This is the last week of March so there's a little time left to change the rankings: 1. The United States, led by New York, California, and Illinois. 2. England of the UK. 3. Canada, with Ontario neck and neck with British Columbia. 4. Australia, with Queensland barely holding out. 5. Ireland, hanging in there for the long haul. That's it for this week! Have a great week, a great weekend, and I'll see you all back here next week for another new episode!

Where is Delaware? with Dave Tabler

Where is Delaware? with Dave Tabler
Geography was never my strongest subject, so I had to guess at where Delaware was when I started discussing it with my expert today. And it turns out the term "Boswash Megalopolis" did not give me as many clues as I was hoping. My guest today is Dave Tabler. Dave is a historian with all kinds of interesting knowledge about the second smallest state. It sits in the aforementioned Boswash area, which is the space between Boston and Washington D.C. Specifically it's just east of D.C. and South of Philadelphia. And boy do they have some weird history since they are old enough to be part of the thirteen colonies, but isolated enough to not really be that involved. They end up with all kind of odds and ends from German food to Elizabethan English clothes and accents. This is very much a history and tourism kind of episode, which I know isn't everyone's thing, but it's a nice way to shake it up every now and then. I'd love to do more of these if there are any historians or just fans of the places they live or visit that want to educate us a little. And just before we get rolling, I've seen a lot of people picking up podcasting recently, and there's no better place to host your show than with Podbean! This show is a featured podcast over there and I've loved every moment of belonging to their service. ( Www.Podbean.Com ) ( "Dave Tabler" on Www.Amazon.Com ) Let's get aware of Delaware!   So there's Delaware. Some fun, some weird, and some in between. I hope you enjoyed the history trip, but know that next week will be entirely  different as always! In other news, the March rankings are competitive for sure: 1. The United States, led by New York, California, and Florida. 2. England, dethroning our now number 3... 3. Canada, with Ontario barely leading. 4. Australia, with Queensland holding the top spot. 5. Ireland, honestly showing up with such numbers it might take top 3 before the month is done! That's it for this week! Have a great week, a great weekend, and I'll see you all back here next week for another new episode!

Becoming Wealthy with Bryan Kuderna
What should I do with my money? That's a question that plagues most people day to day. You don't want to squirrel it all away and have no fun, but you also don't want to wind up in a position where you really need cash on hand, but have none. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Bryan Kuderna. Bryan is a financial advisor, helping people chase their dreams of early retirements and passive incomes. He explains that true wealth is so much more than the amount of dollars you get in every paycheck, and it really has me looking at each transaction in a very different light. You'll probably learn more in the first ten minutes than you learned in all of school. Also, as I've mentioned, this is a featured podcast on the Podbean streaming service. Not only a great place to listen to your favorite shows, but also a great place to start if you'd like to make your very own podcast! ( Www.BryanKuderna.Com ) ( "What Should I Do With My Money" on Www.Amazon.Com ) ( "The Kuderna Podcast" wherever you listen to podcasts) Let's figure out what this money can do for us! Seriously, go leave good reviews for things you enjoy. In other news, the March rankings are competitive to say the least: 1. The United States, led by New York, California, and Washington. 2. Canada, with Ontario still leading.  3. England of The United Kingdom. 4. Australia, with Queensland taking over top territory. 5. Ireland, holding on to their spot very tightly. That's it for this week! Have a great week, a great weekend, and I'll see you all back here next week for another new episode!

First Time Parenting with Gabriel Thomas Spartan

First Time Parenting with Gabriel Thomas Spartan
I think my favorite question to ask expecting parents is: Are you ready? Because they either laugh and say "No", or give an unconvincing "I hope so." Well the expert joining the show today is the first man I would believe if he said "Absolutely". Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Gabriel Thomas Spartan. Gabriel is a teacher with over 20 years experience internationally, proud owner of a #1 dad mug, an author with 10 published books, and a listener of the show! He's hear today to help all the new parents, expecting parents, and potential parents plan for their child's future. He's both passionate and intense about the messages he's bringing. And it's not to say that it's the only way to  do it, but even attempting the things he suggests puts you miles ahead of every other parent out there who is playing every day by ear and hoping for the best. Also, as I've mentioned, this is a featured podcast on the Podbean streaming service. Check it out if you're looking for a wonderful listening experience for all your favorite shows. Also, don't be afraid to drop a comment wherever you are listening at. I love to hear what everyone thinks of these shows! ( Www.FirstTimeMomDad.Com ) Let's plan for our children's future! This is one of those things that no two people ever do the same. Even parents who already have two children raise the third entirely different. The hope is just that this makes that uncertain time of your lives a little easier with some much needed preparation. In other news, the March rankings have begun: 1. The United States, led by California, New York, and Michigan. 2. Canada, with Ontario out front.  3. Australia, with Tasmania holding the crown for (I think) the first time ever. 4. England of The United Kingdom. 5. Ireland. That's it for this week! Have a great week, a great weekend, and I'll see you all back here next week for another new episode!

Loneliness with Shila Patel

Loneliness with Shila Patel
We all get lonely sometimes. Some of us can be lonely while surrounded by people, and others of us might be lonely because we have no one else. And I'm not going to say either one is worse, but it's interesting to ask yourself which one you'd rather be. Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.  My guest today is Shila Patel. Doctor Patel was a psychiatrist for over 25 years, working with diverse ages and population along the east coast of the US. For about 15 years she was one of only two child psychiatrists in her area, able to watch and observe a generation of children becoming adults. She's since retired and written various books, one of which focuses on why we, the human race, are growing lonelier and choosing to not engage in relationships until much later, if at all. And as with most things in life these days, it's killing us. Unrelated, remember this is a featured podcast on the Podbean streaming service. Check it out if you're looking for a wonderful listening experience for all your favorite shows. They're helping me reach so many new listeners, who will hopefully also tell other people about the show... ( Www.DrShilaPatel.Com ) Let's address our isolation! I know it's a deeply uncomfortable premise, for whatever reason, but I think the best thing you can do after hearing this episode is to just call  any of your friends that maybe you haven't spoken to in a little while. It doesn't have to be a long lost friend or anything. I called one of my  best friends in the world just because it was nice to hear his voice instead of only texting him. The February rankings as we reach the end of the month are looking pretty close: 1. The United States, still led by New York, California, and Oregon. With a number of others very close behind. 2. Canada, with Quebec just barely over British Columbia.  3. Australia, still led by New South Wales. 4. England of The United Kingdom. 5. New Zealand, getting bumped down, but still hanging in there. That's it for this week! Have a great week, a great weekend, and I'll see you all back here next week for another new episode!
