The Dog Whisperer and Human Nature

 

Steve Patterson joins me for the greatly anticipated Dog Whisperer show.  We discuss the TV program The Dog Whisper, and very quickly the conversation turns toward comparing the techniques Cesar Millan uses to train dogs to the tactics parents use to control their children.  Are there parenting lessons to be learned from Cesar?  What is human nature?  Is it hierarchical as is the nature of canines?  

 

 

 

And just what exactly does Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter have to do with all of this?  You’ll have to listen to find out!  :)

 

 

 

This is Choice Conversations’ first Christmas episode, recorded Christmas Eve 2013.  Happy Holidays to all the wonderful listeners!  It is truly a privilege to have this opportunity to connect, share, and learn with you.

 

 

 

Here is the podcast mentioned on today’s show with Wes Bertrand and Darrel Becker where we discussed whether or not Non-Violent Communication went against human nature:  http://choiceconversations.libsyn.com/judgment-and-responsibility-with-darrell-becker-and-wes-bertrand

The World is Our Classroom with Miro and Lainie

 

Miro and Lainie from the Raising Miro on the Road of Life travel blog and podcast join me for a wonderful conversation.  Lainie and her son tell me all about their life on the road in South America, living outside of the main stream, unschooling, or “world schooling” as they call it, using travel as a tool for education for both son and mother.  In addition to education, much time is spent discussing the partnership that is required for successful, fulfilling parenting.

 

Plus we find out which HP Lovecraft tale is Miro’s favorite!  :)

Why We Love Shakespeare with Carson and Jeff

 

Carson and Jeff from Bardcast, the Shakespeare podcast, join me to discuss the life and works of William Shakespeare.  This is a fun conversation where we discuss why we love Shakespeare, and attempt to answer questions like “Is Shakespeare still relevant today?”  and “Was Shakespeare a racist?”  In addition, we spend some time talking about the glorious rock star life style us podcasters get to enjoy, and close it out with a short list of Carson’s favorite Shakespeare themed films and plays.

 

Find more from Carson and Jeff here:  http://bardcast.blogspot.com/

 

We spend more time discussing King Lear than any of Shakespeare’s other plays, simply because it was the play I’d read most recently and had closest to the forefront of my mind.  :)  I should mention there are spoilers for King Lear in this podcast.

 

Here is the lecture on King Lear mentioned during the show:
