I recorded this one on my birthday! In this episode I explain the origin of the nickname "Old Man Slacker" that I have adopted, what it means to me, and why I adopted it.
I also go over the different facets that I see as comprising this thing we call life and I introduce the subject of "Motorcycle Philosophy" and what that means to me. I talk about losing my dad and the influence that had on me and why I have dedicated my podcast to him.
I give shout-outs to Jedz Moto and the Loud Pipes! podcast, and especially to my listeners, and I also cover some information about my audience.
I mention Dianetics and recently becoming a trained Dianetics counselor and how that has shaped my views and approach to life and enabled me to effectively help others.
Finally, I discuss how this episode has allowed me to fine tune and realign my thoughts about and my goals with this podcast. In addition to helping expand the field of motorcycling and helping bring in new motorcyclists, I want to use it to enhance and extend what is already being done by other motorcycle podcasts and introduce aspects of philosphy to help people get the most out of motorcycling and to increase their enjoyment of life overall.
