This podcast was such a special experience and one I will forever remember.

The first ever guest has been a huge influence in my life and one of the most loving souls one will ever meet. All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my mom aka Momma-T.

She is a beautiful woman, loving mother, great friend, instinctive philosopher, and one of the coolest people I’ve ever met.

We talk education, growing up in 60’s, raising children and grandchildren and a few other fun topics.

The episode is rough around the edges, has a few errors, and we recorded in two takes due to technical errors.

#001 | Find Your Inner da Vinci.

Did you know Leonardo was an illegitimate child born during what scholars have called a ‘Golden Age’ for Bastards?

How did he fuel his curiosity? This was a man who believed ‘learning never exhausts the mind.’ That is to say he was always learning.

His early years were spent living on his father’s family estate in Vinci. During this period of his life, he was also influenced by his uncle, who had a love of nature and had a hand in rearing him during his formative years.

He had a very short formal schooling, he was largely an autodidact. He was hugely curious and gained inspiration from both nature and the world surrounding him. To paint persons as accurately as possible, he performed anatomical studies that also helped him to understand some of the mechanics behind many of his machines. da Vinci was never satisfied to look at something from one single angle. He turned and rotated, disassembled and dissected to get the utmost understanding of the problems he was wrestling with.
