It's tough coming up as a caring person with empathy. Struggling as a person who just wants the world to behave & function. That's not too much to ask is it?! As an empath, it's especially hard watching this world get meaner & more cruel, lacking in the compassion most of us grew up with. But that's not to say there aren't wonderful people & awesome beauty in this world! Only that we have to fight for our freedom & right to exist, to watch ourselves in this world from would-be attackers. I learned a lot in the army, but it's not exactly what most people think. It's more like being in the Peace Corps but while wearing a rifle. Some days you're a healing hand; feeding, clothing & giving comfort & care. The next day you're on a tactical mission assessing & eliminating threats. It's difficult trying to maintain a balance being both friend & soldier. To "come in peace" while wearing a gun is a hard balance to maintain. But the army is where I first learned the importance of being a good person with strong values, to be able to handle yourself, with restraint & compassion. When I got out I went to college, then culinary school & became a chef. Later I was an EMT & phlebotomist, & even worked in radio. I've always tried continuing the mission though, to give comfort & aid whenever I can. To help the needy, vulnerable, oppressed, frightened & the ailing. To fight for the rights & dignity of all people & to protect this world from tyranny & oppression. Ever since I was a kid though, I always wanted to be a comedian. I've always loved making people laugh, & bringing a smile to people's face! Now a little older & with a pain condition, it made me realize just how short & sweet life is & how most of the time we waste this life being upset or try too hard living up to other people's expectations & agendas. I've paid a good share of my dues & have seen a thing or two, & I've had some pretty crazy times! But I've also lived in "emergency mode" much of the time working long grueling hours for not a lot of pay & came to the profound realization just how short this life is. I spent too much time living up to the world's demands, putting my own joy on hold for a lot of nonsense. So I quit my job & became a full-time comedian, author, activist, & voice artist. Some think that's awesome & some think the cheese slipped off my cracker! I decided then & there I would commit myself to the betterment of myself & humankind, to fight for the dignity, rights, & comfort of regular folks who simply crave opportunities & a bit of hope in often apathetic times. This podcast is my spiritual passion project where I talk about everything from being an empath to my passions like the paranormal & ghosts, aliens & UFO's, to cryptids & bigfoot. I want to get to the truth of all these things! I'll also talk about pop culture & movies, & my nerd obsessions like superheroes, Star Trek, Godzilla, spooky stuff, & my new appreciation of audio/video & tech geeking. We'll try to make sense of what's going on in our culture & the world, & I'll try to help regular people figure out ways to empower themselves & find growth & more robust & free life. To find balance & a more bold & fruitful journey. Sometimes I can get pretty silly, other times I get serious & straight from the heart. But no matter what the topic or my mood, I always try to be helpful & thoughtful & to leave you with some serious food for thought. Come on over & become a part of my "empath tribe!" You don't have to be an empath, you only have to be you! Let's continue the conversation & fun @chefbrycomedy on IG & Twitter & @survivingempathypodcast on FB. I'm proud of the work I do here, but that doesn't mean that we can't have some fun & have some laughs too! Most folks just want to feel good, be valued & treated right, & to find hope & opportunities in a world getting harder & that's making less sense every day. That's what this is all about, to feel good, empower ourselves, & uncover the truth.
