Thriving in Dystopia

Ep44: Emotional Baggage in Our Bodies

April 5, 2021

The brothers first talk wasabi burns and then get into discussing the 1st weekend of the NCAA tourney.   Dave’s finishing up his spring break, and Bob is almost starting theirs. Dave’s high is an hour and a half run that he went on, which triggers a conversation on running.


The topic of today’s show is unpacking our physical pain, especially with a lens to emotional roots of pain.  Dave discusses how his awful back pain a few years ago eased and began to heal after seeing a homeopath.  He brings in ideas about how to release stress that builds up in our bodies.  Bob has come to understand that fascia in our body plays an important role in connecting physical pain and emotional stress. 


Errata: Texas State are the Bobcats; not the Wildcats as Bob said.


Gut Check

Air travel will become as normalized this summer as before the pandemic.  Dave gives it a 9/10. Bob says 7/10.
