Patreon - The Path to Authenticity


Be Nice

Episode 51 of The Path to Authenticity was recorded on the eerie, somewhat apocalyptic-feeling day of Thursday, March, 12,2020. Among many other things, the NCAA tournament was canceled. It was hard to imagine then that 30 episodes later I’d be imploring listeners to wear masks because, in the US, basic healthcare precautions had become controversial.

A special thanks to the artist Brian Phillips, for providing a little inspiration for this one. Check out, or purchase his works here. See examples of Brian’s work here. Hear his story in episode 10. Tom talks about the status of back episodes after the need arose to re-edit every single one of them. Lots of great guests coming up soon, including the photographer Safaa Kagan. Visit Learn more about Safaa, and read her artist statement here. Safaa is the guest in episodes 69 and 71. See examples of her work here.

The Path to Authenticity is brought to you by The Bridge to Recovery, in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The Path to Authenticity is a podcast for people looking for more from life. It focuses on emotional wellness and starts from the premise that our true power comes from our individuality. 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.
