Deadly Arnold Ep. 02: "Clay McMath on being more than just an athlete."

In this episode of the Deadly Arnold Josh has an extemporaneous and deep conversation with writer, athlete and emerging poet Claybrin McMath.

The guys discuss the following:

  • Breaking the chains of self-indentification and the private/public pressure to be what those around you expect you to be.
  • Moving into a creative field when you’re most known for excellence in physical/sporting endeavour.
  • The trade off between a creative growth path and living out that creative growth in the age of social media.
  • Clay’s thoughts on Josh calling social media a “a hair-trigger of judgement.”

Deadly Arnold Ep. 01: "make the thing you most want to make."

After much planning, deliberating and a healthy smattering of procrastinating this is The Deadly Arnold. The show I wanted “Braver By The Day” to be but it never was.

Why the re-launch?

  1. Braver By The Day sounded like the show I thought others most wanted to hear, but I didn’t want to make.
  2. The show became too serious at times (not in subject matter) but in the darkness of the take on that subject matter.
  3. I wanted to stand out more from what I now know is an industry as much filled with charlatans and sales, as it is with good people and science.
  4. I craved the room to bring on guests from many more walks of life and creative backgrounds.
