Let’s Get Psyched About Reading: The Game of Lives by James Dashner



Description: 

Philosophy was one of the strangest but most interesting classes I took in college. If you’ve ever studied the subject I’m sure you understand why. I started reading “The Mortality Doctrine” series in highschool, since the author James Dashner also wrote my favorite book series “The Maze Runner”. And yes, I somehow only now finished this series (having recently graduated college). 
I don’t remember much about the books from highschool, so I was not expecting it to be as philosophical as it was. What is reality? What does it mean to truly be alive and to die? What does it mean to be good or bad? These are only a few of the questions covered in the action-packed trilogy. 

In this episode, I’m unpacking all of the philosophical themes that are presented in the book series. And by that I mean… I at least tried to. Did I do alright?

Stay Psyched: Diversity of Impact (And Why Getting Psyched Is Good for You)


Full Description:

Getting Psyched has become an essential part of my life, and I recently made the connection between getting psyched and the psychological concept known as ‘Diversity of Impact’. 
In today’s episode, I’ll explain how the concept that I learned in Dr. Nacoste’s Social Psychology class can benefit us and our relationships, and what it has to do with getting psyched. During this time in quarantine, this concept can really keep us connected to each other. 

I encourage you to take a little time to get psyched about something with someone you love. My girlfriend made me realize how special and important that is, and I hope I can help you see why it’s so nice to get psyched and stay psyched.

Let’s Get Psyched about Reading: This Book is Full of Spiders with Ela and David (Part 2)



If you know who we are, presumably because you watched the previous podcast, I know what you’re thinking and in response I can only say “yes, we are huge fans of the series too”. Once again, we couldn’t get John and Dave to be on the podcast. They were furious that we ‘had the audacity’ to ask again. I will no longer be reaching out and I do not want to explain what else John said to us, but I can safely say they will not be in the podcast for the next book either.
My girlfriend Ela, and my friend David, spent over two and a half hours trying to make sense of this chaotic story with me. Spoiler alert, we were not able to make much sense of it. And two and a half hours is a long time, so we split this talk into two parts.
Here’s part two, and just to cover my legal bases, I’m warning you now: This podcast is full of spiders. If you listen to it, you’re doing so at your own risk. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Full Description: 
This morning I did some light reading in bed, then went to the kitchen, drank a nice tall glass of cold brew, and, after feeling like my heart was racing four times faster than my initial wakeup, I went back to my room and turned on my laptop so that I could finish editing today’s episode. If I had the motivation to film everything Matt D’Avella-style it would’ve looked like the morning of a well put together person. Or at least that’s what it felt like, i’m sure it looked more like that tired morning dog meme (if you haven’t seen the gif, I recommend googling it, it’s my favorite). 
Anyways, that’s only because finally organizing a few things has taken the chaos out of my podcasting and morning routine. It just took a couple basic but incredibly helpful tips to get there. Now I’m able to make episodes easier and, hopefully, make them better too. So that’s why I made this episode. 
If you want to feel like nothing can stop you from creating some of the coolest things ever, here are five tips that finally got me organized and even more psyched to do what I love.
