Scott talks with Joshua about Living Adaptive and his new podcast, This Is A True Story. The 2 of them talk about finding humor in the midst of struggle and discrimination, why people without disabilities know better what terms people with them need to use to describe themselves, and why Jake Paul is an obnoxious genius.
Joshua mentions a few Adventure Mind initiatives in the early planning stages.
- A visually impaired surf team.
- Martial arts and fitness training resources.
- Adventure Mind merch.
During the episode Joshua mentions a video his surf coach, John White, released via the Waves 4 All YouTube channel. The video highlights a couple of key moments from John and Joshua’s surf session on Sunday, January 10. Check it out below. If you want to be part of the surf team John mentions in the video, please email Joshua at Joshua@adventuremind.net.

In this episode, I give some back story on the origins of Adventure Mind and what I want it to become. I talk about the struggle that the Holiday Season is for me, and why I believe we (humanity) need each other more than we ever have. Separateness is an illusion. We are all connected in some way, shape, or form. As we grow in our resiliency, we can help others grow in theirs. Seeking adversity of our own choosing and cultivating courage by facing our fears is how humanity grows stronger. This is how we build the Adventure Mind.
In this episode, I make brief mention of my struggle with PTSD, major depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. If you, or someone you know, is struggling with mental health challenges, I encourage you to contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. I have done so, and they were able to help me.

To my knowledge, even though the organization is based in the US, they can refer people in other countries to similar resources able to help them.
Adventure Mind is a work in progress. The more involved you are, the more you can help shape how powerful this way of living can be.

Josh and Joshua have been friends for more than 26 years. During the earlier part of their friendship, the 2 of them spent a considerable amount of time involved in a notably conservative expression of Evangelical Christianity. In this episode, they discuss some of their common experiences. Talk about their current thoughts on matters of faith, and explore what it means to walk away from the religion of their youth.

Tanner and Joshua have one of the most unfiltered conversations on the podcast yet. Topics range between Tanner’s athletic accomplishments, purchasing beer while blind, finding humor in the chaos that is American politics in 2020, and a myriad of other rabbit trails. This episode is not for the squeamish or easily offended. It *is* for those who want to witness a conversation between 2 blind champions from different sports swap stories and find out whether it is ok for visually impaired people to order their own nachos.
