Post-election thoughts. Managing stress and disagreement. Connecting to gratitude. Weekly wins. And, of course, listener questions. Welcome to another edition of Roll On.

Commanding co-host duties as always is my hype man Adam Skolnick, an activist and veteran journalist perhaps best known as David Goggins’ Can’t Hurt Me co-author. Adam has written about adventure sports, environmental issues and civil rights for outlets such as The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men’s Health. He is the author of One Breath and is currently hard at work on a novel.

Some of the many topics explored in today’s conversation include:

• The importance of actively creating a gratitude practice;

• plant-based holiday ideas;

• how to deal with family stress and disagreement;

• Alex Hutchinson’s essay ‘COVID-19 is like running a marathon with no finish line’;

• the new documentary, ‘Feels Good Man’ and how a meme turned into an alt-right mascot;

• the terrifying capabilities of artificial intelligence;

• Alenka Artnik’s 114m world record free-dive in Egypt.

In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

  • How do you have real conversations in the era of smartphones and social media?
  • How do you raise plant-based children?
  • How do you balance work, parenthood, and marriage while still making time for personal passions?

Thank you to Adrian from London, Daniel from Australia, and Carlos from Germany for your questions. If you want your query discussed, drop it on our Facebook Page, or better yet leave a voicemail at (424) 235-4626.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
