On this episode, Zach and I check out a disc golf rap made by Dustin, a friend of Zach’s. We also brainstorm the future of Zen Disc Golf from sponsorships to teams, to products, to tattoos. Then we discuss Suge Knight and some of our deepest fears. Following our conversation, I got to talk about mental health and disc golf with Alan Hargreaves, a Team Trilogy disc golfer who will be presenting on disc golf’s connection to mental health at the HOPE Conference in Maine, May 29th.
Ladies and gentlemen, this finishes up what I call the “first 4 pilot episodes” of the Zen Disc Golf Podcast. When I pitched the idea to Zach to do this, we had no idea if anyone would even listen but we went ahead and did them anyway. I contacted 4 interviewees in a week and in 3 days we recorded 4 episodes quickly before Zach had to head out to Japan on business. As always, you – my followers – my readers – and now our listeners have proved to be AMAZING. Because these episodes have gone so well and proven that we have some staying power, we have bumped up our studio equipment to continue to provide better and better quality podcasts and information. There is so much to talk about on Episode 5, Zach will be back in a few days and we will have the next episode out ASAP. I have a growing list of interviewees who have agreed to do the show including JohnE McCray and Tim Seward (Mind Body Disc Himself!) Please stay tuned because this thing is just beginning! Please leave a review on iTunes if you like the show. Reviews help more than anything!
(00:00) MOMENT OF ZEN
You can have all of the desire in the world, and all of the belief that you can achieve that desire, but if you do not physically practice with persistence, inevitably you either put it into action or you quit before success occurs.” (From the pages of Zen & The Art of Disc Golf)
