Don't worry we are not quitting. We are changing platforms where we host. You probably won't notice and is pretty seamless, but please reach out to us at hello@threadspodcast if for some reason you cant get it anymore. 

 

Thanks,

Ben and Mike revisit Episode 3 of Threads. It was a doozy. Ben was stuck in a pretty dark place. As if that wasn't bad enough, the audio quality was pretty subpar, too! We've come a long way since Episode 3.

Having grown up in the same area, these two guys grew up in very similar homes. Listen as they reflect on some unhealthy communication patterns that went on in their homes.

Mike talks about the ways his family engages with their neighbors, and Ben and Mike reflect on their kayak outing a couple weeks ago. Has Ben converted Mike to the joys of kayaking? Listen and find out!

Friendship can be hard to come by for men in their 30's and 40's. Work and family responsibilities often keep dudes from building meaningful friendships with other guys.

Ben & Jason chat with their friend Larry about ways they've been able to forge meaningful friendships. 

To wrap up the show, Larry turns the table and interviews Ben & Jason on the spot!

We hope our friendship and conversation inspires you to build more meaningful friendships.

Mental health is often discussed at length on the show, but rarely is physical health talked as often. Since early this year, Ben, Jason, and Mike have been on a journey towards better physical health. Along the way, they've been learning some valuable lessons and gaining insights about the connection between physical activity and improved mental health.

This connection is something that has been observed in the healthcare field with nurses. During the pandemic, nurses were stressed out and suffering poor mental health conditions. This resulted in more preventable medical errors. 

Ben, Jason, and Mike are all obese by the BMI standards. Obesity often causes depression, and kicks off a vicious cycle that includes anxiety and self-deprecating thoughts. Listen in to hear more about this cycle.

We wrap by comparing perceptions of mental health in the US/UK, and touch one last time on the healthcare field's view of mental health.

Join us on this Personal Update episode as Mike and Jason revisit a conversation from Episode 2 about the American flag in church. Jason ends up changing his mind by acknowledging that Ben may have been right about the flag in his church all along.

Jason also encourages Mike to try therapy, but Mike is hesitant. Listen in as Jason peer pressures him to go. Will Mike choose to go to therapy?

This is the first time Mike has been on the show as a co-host. You'll hear the story of how he "fan-girled" his way into being a guest co-host. Jason & Mike got to know each other better by co-hosting, while Ben enjoyed a night off.

Have you ever wondered what your child is really going through when they throw a tantrum?

Parenting coach Rachel Kurian has been there. She’s seen it all -- both as a parent and as a professional teacher. This episode will give you insights into your child's mind, and challenge you to understand what triggers them or why they do certain things.

We also discuss the "neuro-typical child" vs. kids who experience trauma or who may be on the autism spectrum.

Joe Pellerito from the ReChoice Podcast joins us to discuss his story of finding - and leaving - Christianity. 

What led him to faith? What caused him to leave? How did he feel when he finally made that decision? How did his loved ones respond?

You're about to hear an honest discussion about what it means to be human and how we can live our lives without religion or dogma dictating the way we live. Why is there such an emphasis on shame in Christianity? Why does the Jesus in the Bible seem so different from the Jesus that Americans follow?
