19 – Tribute to Captain Kevin “Flash” Larson

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Capt. Kevin “Flash” Larson. Flash passed away around a year ago and this episode is a compilation of some highlight takes we had while recording this podcast. This podcast will never be the same without him, but I hope to continue it in tribute to him. I am not sure exactly how the show will look, but I hope I can carry on Flash’s vision of creating any content whatsoever…as long as it can help others live better lives. The world misses you Flash, and we will always remember the friendship and kindness you brought to everyone and everything in your life.

These life “hacks” we discuss range from the topics in the nutrition and exercise realm, all the way to things such as meditation, philosophy, and problem solving.

Episode 10 – Life as a “Millennial”

This episode of the LTC podcast is all about millennials! There is often a negative stigma associated with the word “millennial” and we delve into how it has transformed from simply a word used to describe a generation of young people, into a label with several different stereotypes attached to it. We attempt to dissolve the stereotype of the self entitled, participation trophy seeking, lazy millennial, but also acknowledge reasons as to why some of these stereotypes do have some validity.  From technology to politics to social demographics, we explore a variety of topics in effort to paint a clear picture as to what life as a millennial is like in today’s world.
