Kyrin Down & Juan Granados



What is Effective Philosophy? Juan and I simplify hard to grasp concepts into pragmatic takeaways that can be applied to every day life (fitness, goal setting, work, parenting, travel, hobbies, finances, etc., ..... the list goes on). 2 x episodes a week. We go live every Wednesday with our topical musings, plus an extra as a more casual conversation with a guest or between ourselves.

Any Moment Could Be The Last | What Should I Do About It?

Juan and I are experiencing firsts & lasts with our loved ones, moments that may or may not be lost in time.

In Episode #423 of 'Musings', Juan & I discuss: the connection between moments and memories, why the last time of something can also be the first of something else, our tricks for enjoying the good/bad moments of life, what Juan did after slipping on his driveway and how life journaling could alter our perception of reality.
