 About us

A Podcast for People Who Want More from Life

The Path to Authenticity starts from the assertion that we wrest our true power from our individuality.

Real conversations with real people.

We talk to various types of writers and artists as well as therapists, coaches, teachers, entrepreneurs, and professionals of all kinds. Our guests possess one common trait.

They’re people who know who they are.

We talk about what makes them who they are, how they became who they are, and how we might become truer expressions of who we are.

I once heard someone say, “when it comes to love, if you don’t show it, it doesn’t count.” That expression resonated with me and the sentiment informs my approach to life. I grew up in a factory town with a lot of bars. When it came time for me to transition into manhood, I had no sense of purpose. I felt lost; stuck. I had no sense of meaning. As a child, I wanted to feel more connected to the men who were important to me. It was logical for that little boy to conclude drinking was the way to strengthen those bonds. My...
