Patreon - The Path to Authenticity


A Symptom of the Problem

Sarey Ruden transforms her negative experiences in the world of online dating into powerful works of art. She’s the creator of SareyTales,and was a featured speaker at TedX Detroit in 2019. In this episode, we explore the often-toxic nature of online interactions. We talk about the undercurrent of hostility that feeds this phenomenon. We touch on an array of topics including, manhood, emotional balance, institutional racism, and (this episode was recorded on the day of the 2019 school shooting in Denver) the need for gun control. Hear Sarey’s conversation with host, Tom Gentry, on episode eight of The Path to Authenticity. To learn more about Sarey Ruden, click here.

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.
