Show: Season 2- Episode 01 (June 2020)
Host: Dan Mickle
Topic: Chat with Trevor Ragan of The Learner Lab (Season Premiere)


 In the Season 2 premiere, we sit down with Trevor Ragan from The Learner Lab.  I wanted to hear his story of going from the Midwest to Duke basketball to Train Ugly to the future.  Trevor has been on a lot of podcasts and the speaking circuit a lot recently, so I wanted to do something a little different and talk about him.  I had a great time and I think he enjoyed it as well.  Please check out all of his links below and give his great podcast a listen.

Mental Cast - S1:E08 (Coaching Burnout - Season Finale)

January 30, 2020

Coaching burnout is one of the topics I seem to talk about most when I am working with coaches and managers.  A lot of people seem to know the end stages of coaching burnout but may not realize the early warning signs or ways to combat it.  In this episode, we look at some of the root causes as well as some strategies to help you avoid burnout.  It is not an uncommon thing and there are some easy ways to help you avoid it.  We hope you enjoy the episode!

Mental Cast - S1:E07 (Donald Reeser Jr. - Part 1)

January 24, 2020

Part businessman, part dart player, and a lot less of him now.  In this episode, we talk with the local proprietor of Reeser's Soft Ice Cream, Mr. Donald Reeser Jr.  This is part one of a three-part series on Donnie.  We chat in the parking lot of our favorite local food establishment, Nick's 114.  Part one deals with his business life and the mental challenges of a small business owner.  Part two we chat about his weight loss journey (which has been amazing), and in the final part, we discuss his alter-ego "Grimm Reeser" the high-level dart player.

We hope you enjoy this departure from our normal style and we apologize in advance for the portable recording sound and the length.  We just couldn't stop chatting.

In this episode, Dan looks at traditions.  Traditions play a large part in our lives.  Everything from how we eat, learn, work and play.  From the playing field to the board room, we deal with traditions on a regular basis.  Usually, we don't even give them much thought, but what are traditions really?  Are they good?  Are they bad?  Where do they come from and how do we evaluate them.  Also, what role do they play in your "masterplan"?  As always, you can reach us all across social media with @717SOUL.
