#48 - Joe Jackowski: Relationships, Meaningful Moments, and Remembering the Past

“If you don't know where we came from then, we don't know where we are going.”

Episode 48.jpg

Joe and Erich have a discussion built around relationships, which morphs into how we connect with each other. We talk about removing the buffer between the outside world and ourselves. That when we remove the buffer, we allow for meaningful moments to happen spontaneously. From there we talk about the cynicism of our generation that seems to push back on authenticity or showing genuine emotion as a weakness if you don't connect whatever that is on the same level. We can channel someone's else passion and allow that fuel what each out of us enjoys in the world. We need as many taste and views in the world as possible. If we all thought and acted the same way, the world would get stale rather quickly. We spend a portion of time on how we can bring Feeding Curiosity to a live format. Going live is in a seedling stage, but it will happen, and the reason it exists here is keeping ourselves honest. Finally, we close with thoughts on what remember the past is essential. Joe shares stories on what his grandmother experienced and tokens from her life that have now been passed on to him. We brainstorm an idea of how to capture the lives and stories others to allow future generations to get a sense of what it was like before them.
