This was my 4th appearance on the @joerogan podcast. It was an intense & fun conversation. 3 hours flew by. If I'm afraid of doing something, I know it's what I must do. Fear shows the way. I was afraid to play guitar & sing, so I did it. Next time: Hendrix. #jre #guitar

I look for the good in people. Sometimes I get hurt for it, but it's rare and it's worth it. You may hear me say optimistic things that sound naive. I'm not naive. I've read too much history to be naive. I just think love wins out over the darker parts of human nature in the end.
