The best conversations are rooted in connection; better connection improves relationships; stronger relationships are the building blocks of a better world. That is the foundation for This Show is All About You, hosted by JDK Wyneken.

Tune in Mondays from 3PM – 4PM PST to hear a thoughtful conversation between JDK and his weekly guest about discovering and building upon connections. Featured guests are invited for their unique experiences and stories that resonate, whether they be about the Big Things in Life we all face or the Little Joyful Things That We Often Miss  – or both.

JDK is a fiction writer, PhD historian, poet, storyteller, and social commentator with an affinity for making the complex easier to understand and embrace. His interests and experiences range far and wide, and he isn’t shy about sharing his unique and insightful takes on history, current affairs, literature, media, music, travel, sports, cooking, or whatever else JDK and his guests explore. It’s all delivered with a healthy dose of humor, emotional intelligence, personal reflection, and strategic irreverence for the accepted notions of How Things Should Be Done.

JDK Wyneken, Host

JDK was raised on the beaches of Hawaii and Southern California and has lived all over the country. While he has traveled the world, he is most at home with his own imperfect self. Having reimagined and rebuilt his life after his battle through addiction, JDK knows what it’s like to work through and accept the ugly parts of life to better appreciate its gifts.

Combine all that with years of connecting with, listening to, and learning from people of all ages and stages, and you have a host willing and uniquely able to share his full life on the airwaves in order to connect with listeners – ensuring his show is, indeed, All About You.

Innies and Outies
Episode 94: “Innies and Outies” Inspired in equal measure by last week’s launch of the Artemis I rocket to the Moon and the approaching Thanksgiving holiday in America, JDK discusses the connections we have between exploring outer space(s) and our inner spaces of spirit, emotion, and intuition. What emerges is yet more exploration and discovery that can - if we choose - improve our own inner landscapes and then transform outer ones.
Predictions Are Stupid
Episode 93: "Predictions Are Stupid" The midterm elections surprised us all - but why?? It's the question JDK asks us all to consider in this episode as we figure out why the forecasted "red wave" made only a splash. Could it be that our own focus on trying to control outcomes - predictions - could be a major problem for us? Are there better ways to frame and understand how elections work? To what degree is the history of elections helpful or harmful in ascertaining where the country is at any given moment? Take a listen and hear JDK's suggestions while you consider some of your own.
And That Is An Encouraging Thought
Episode 92: "And That Is An Encouraging Thought" With the midterm elections imminent, JDK builds on his thoughts from last week's episode to discuss how we can each show up for ourselves and others in these uncertain, stressful times. Using a heartfelt favorite book / film series that has a bunch of Hobbits and wizards in it, he talks about what lessons we can draw from its characters - moving forward in any circumstances, allowing outside externals to do as they will, and developing perseverance rooted in the hope and faith that things can work out for better in the long (maybe longer or longest) run. It's what he means every week when he signs off with, "Chins Up, Everyone!"
