109: Steven Pressfield, best-selling author of The War of Art, on creative Resistance, fear/love & tuning into the cosmic radio station

Steven Pressfield is the best-selling author of The War of Art, The Artist's Journey, The Legend of Bagger Vance, Gates of Fire and, his newest novel, which was published earlier this month, A Man at Arms. In this conversation, we talk about Resistance with a capital-R, that diabolical enemy within each of us that tries to keep us from connecting with our highest Self (and each other). We talk fear and love, self-sabotage and leadership, Hero's Journey and Artist's Journey, dreams and discovering ourselves, and tribalism and society, among other things.

New Trailer: Humanitou Podcast

The Humanitou Podcast is about humanness and creativity. It's created and hosted by artist and writer Adam Williams, a super-curious introvert who might not be a superstar at small talk but loves thoughtful, energizing, one-on-one conversations. Humanitou shines light on failure and triumph, fear and love and all the messy and real parts of being human. There are conversations with fellow artists, thinkers, leaders and spiritual practitioners. And sometimes Adam goes solo to tackle the tough topics of being creative, not to mention just plain human. Topics like impostor syndrome, self-sabotage, and fear of success. Guests have included illustrator and author Lisa Congdon, celebrity chef Brother Luck, and best-selling author of The War of Art, Steven Pressfield. And many more amazing people doing super-amazing things to make the world a better place. More at humanitou.com. ----MORE---- Humanitou is created, produced and hosted by Adam Williams.

108: Adam Williams, on the season wrap-up, Humanitou updates and Lewis Hyde's 'The Gift'

Adam Williams, creator and host of the Humanitou Podcast, wraps up Season One of the podcast, and talks about the newest goings on around Humanitou and his plans for the season break before he jumpstarts Season Two early in 2021. Along the way, he talks about Lewis Hyde's classic book, "The Gift," and how it's influencing his perspective on art creation (and even selling) as a means of gift giving, and how we all can play a role in keeping the energy of generosity flowing in the world. These things and more in this season-ending episode of the Humanitou Podcast. Show notes and transcript at humanitou.com. ----MORE---- Humanitou is created, hosted and produced by Adam Williams.

107: Chip Thomas, doctor, public artist & activist, on documentary photography, 'soul wounds' of the Navajo Nation, Quaker values, and surviving a widow-maker

Dr. Chip Thomas, a.k.a. "Jetsonorama," as a boy, avoided the violence of school desegregation by spending a fateful few years in a Quaker community. He later carried those Quaker values with him into a four-year commitment to serve as a young doctor on the Navajo Nation. That was in the Eighties. He's still there, more than 30 years later, and has become an integral part of the community, not only as a doctor, but as a public artist and activist. In this conversation, we talk about Chip's recent selection by the United Nations as one of nine artists being highlighted for #UN75. We talk about the disproportionate suffering on the Navajo Nation and "soul wounds." Chip earned a Guinness World Record for a 12,000-mile cycling trek the length of Africa. And on another cycling adventure met the brink of death in the grip of a widow-maker heart attack. These things and much more in this episode of the Humanitou Podcast. Show notes at humanitou.com.

106: Ber-Henda Williams, founder of The Power of Girlhood, on leadership and poetry, curiosity, FOMO and Sheila E.

Ber-Henda Williams is an empathic coach and facilitator, a bilingual poet and storyteller, and founder of The Power of Girlhood, a leadership institute for teen girls in Detroit. In this conversation, we talk about Detroit, and about going against the tide and leading from where we are. We talk about the need for curiosity, love poetry as a tool against the political power structure, and going toe-to-toe with the boys in class, laying down beats and rhymes. We've got special shoutouts to DJ Kool Herc and Sheila E. ("she's not just some Prince protegé"), among many other influences, including Eve Ensler and her play, "The Vagina Monologues." And we talk about other things, too. More at humanitou.com. ----MORE---- Humanitou is created, hosted and produced by Adam Williams.

Amanda E.K. is a writer and filmmaker, the editor-in-chief and publisher of Suspect Press, a memoirist about purity culture and an exvangelical.
