Thanks for listening to Episode 8 of The People People Podcast!
You're one of us, aren't you? You're a people person. But you get that being a “people person” isn’t just about being chatty and smiley and super-duper nice, it’s about transforming the world through relationships. You're one of those people who understands that HUMAN CONNECTION is the key to everything. You're one of those people who understands that humans are social animals, and we're all deeply longing for real, meaningful, deep-spirited connection in all aspects of our life. You're one of those people who understands that the secret to creating the world you want is found in your ability to connect. You're one of us. We are people people. And you found our show.
“Where are you from?” This question is boring, predictable, and painfully dull when employed in conversation. But somehow, it is still REALLY important. Why is that? Why is it that we seek to understand a person’s geographical roots as a shortcut to understanding who they are? What makes that a valuable human connection tactic?
Alex Taylor (@alext_sigmanu on Insta and Twitter) is a southern boy, ya’ll. And this episode explores the southern culture’s unique human connection eccentricities along with the big idea of how PLACE shapes our sense of identity. Alex and the podcast’s host Matt Mattson work together, but this conversation isn’t about work… it’s about humans, and connection, and all the things you’ve become used to expecting from the deep dive conversations that take place on The People People Podcast.
Enjoy the episode!
