Are you fully expressing yourself?

And do you feel like of course we must all have days where we're not and days where we are, or we're in situations where we are and situations where we are not. And I guess this is everybody trying the same thing. Do we all feel like we're growing into ourselves? Or do we feel stuck? Or are we diminishing? Are we kind of like burying who we really are? It's a deep question for us. Well wonder what you guys thought

@MarkR

Broadcasting as in speaking with people or even broadcasting internally of instead of a curious mind, more of a declarative mind, if you will. And when I stay in that space of being broadcasting or declarative, ultimately it's not healthy for me. And I have to realize that I'm in that state and then check myself, pull back and tap into some more self care because then I can tap into the more explorative side. And that is far healthier for me

And then it would be through maybe through our what we wear, our fashion, how we choose to express ourselves, the music we listen to. But I guess if you could play music or you're an artist of some kind you could really express yourself and

You get to know them better than others, but then again, they're still my client, and they're still paying for my clients, and I still have a job to do, so I'm focused on them most of the time. Right. It's completely all about them, and so they'll pick up something completely different

@MarkR

Because there are sometimes there's people who are neurotypical that can communicate like neurodivergent people, and then there's neurodivergent people who can communicate more like neurotypicals. Like, my brother is neurodivergent, but he communicates more neurotypically, but he can communicate somewhat neurodivergently. But I sometimes have difficulty navigating. Sometimes when I'm communicating with you, you communicate along the lines of a neurodivergent. But there's still times where I'm not sure and it can be more neurotypical

To teach it, I need to be able to do it, and it's a real expression of human movement, but with a real purpose behind it, of being defensive or attacking. I'm using boxing. I'm a boxing coach. But as again, as an analogy, but this is when I'm teaching, it's a very pure expression of, like I said, movement with skill

I guess if there's been times where I'm trying to think like you don't go out much to dance. But if you do and you're in, you've put on some clothes. Depends where you are and you're going out and you feel good clothes, clothes that you want to wear. Then you go to a place that's a place kind of music and it's your setting and your scene

But, you know, for instance, I remember in the screenwriting course, writing course, we were watching a scene of a woman who was in her bedroom, and then she went over to open fire and was warming her hands. But the whole scene gave us a sense that she was hungry for passion. It was the fire, the way she was interacting with the fire, hungry for some warmth in her life or some passion, something like that

@MarkR

Anyway, all of that to say is that some of the resources might offer some insight but some of the resources might be very superficial in their explanations. And I should elaborate of what I meant by neurodivergent versus neurotypical communication styles. And again, this is like a really imperfect labeling that I'm doing here of trying to identify different ways of communication but it seems to follow along to some extent those different boxes or frames

@MarkR (...to create that scene that we're setting.)

It's the entirety of, like you said, with respect to the scripting and the directing and the acting and the music, and all of those pieces come together to create that entire scene. And you're not focusing on any one of those things, but it's the entirety of how it makes you feel, right? It's all of it together

They'll always address it, which takes away the sarcasm. It's quite funny. It always ruins it for me because it was like, oh, that's cool. They've used sarcasm and I want to interpret it and say, have they used sarcasm? But they take it away by saying that was a joke where the British never say that was a joke. So I know people who are like that

And you heighten your senses through sensory work. Maybe you've done some of this. I know you said the spectrum is broad. I actually asked my niece, the one that was telling you about who she's a psycho psychologist, criminal psychologist. I asked her because I'd never heard of the word until you mentioned it. I didn't know about neurodivergent. I said, Are you a neurodivergent? And she said, yeah, of course she is. She was like, yeah, of course

@MarkR

It and so I have to choose something different to wake up to. Nothing too gentle, or I'll keep sleeping comfortably through it. It has to be just right. And I do the same thing, whether it's notifications, sounds of notifications, or my phone ringing. Funny enough, there's not always a lot of options that are very sensory, let's say supportive. So I've had to create some of my own sound effects or notification sounds anyway

I'm really now intrigued because this is great for communicating. There must be tests, especially when you're trying to get somebody to especially like me as a coach, trying to influence somebody for their own good. I suppose it's in their language. Without doing a test. I suppose it will be in their language, what they say, listening to how they how they express themselves. I absolutely love it. I'm going to look into it more

@MarkR

That is so interesting. I didn't know at the time when I was doing more acting, so I didn't know how tuned into senses I was and so it didn't even dawn on me to use it like that. The tweed. How fascinating. The more that I learn about my own wiring and then I learn about others, whether we're talking specific labels, autism, ADHD, or anything else, there's this beautiful spectrum to human neurowiring, right?

The sounds heightened the whole experience for me. The other thing I was going to say, your salad sounds delicious, by the way. But I like for instance, my favorite place for sensory overload, for sensory overload in a good way, is the beach. We like going to say a Beta or to Corfu. And it's everything. It's the turquoise water, it's the sand. I love the sand. Most people I know don't like sand

So, for instance, if you think of something really funny and then you to my surprise, it works. And this also lets me know that in life, this works too. Whatever you're taking with you to the scene in life, whatever you did in the last scene, you take with you. And I'll tell you what I mean by that. So, for instance, I did this scene with an actor and the audience was watching and I made myself laugh before I went out

@MarkR

The power of the imagination. I remember that being in the forefront of my mind when I started doing social audio, however many years ago that was. But it sort of waned, I think, because now more people are on it and it becomes more mundanely used, I guess. And I miss that, the relishing in that it's audio, the relishing in using our imagination, just relishing in the richness of the medium and what we can do with it

Funky, funk jazz kind of musicians. They were all based in New York. They were all just like session players from New York. And they tried to capture the sound of the city. And I thought, wow, this is great. And I realized you can broadcast from your phone and you make a playlist, and you can just broadcast it out. If people have Spotify Premium or Apple, they can listen in

And that's me expressing how I feel through vinyl, through my stereo. Or if I was to play guitar. Now, guitar by yourself is nice. It's soothing. But if I was to play guitar and just be playing while somebody is just doing something and they might be talking to me and I'm just playing, then I'm kind of expressing myself together. We both could maybe enjoy it. I don't know if you'll enjoy it, but we could enjoy it

@MarkR

No visuals, but it would be trickier. And I don't know what that means. If it means certain types of equipment to filter out some things. I don't know if it means when it's particularly loud, to describe a little bit, like to create the images with words. I don't know. It would have to be like a trial and error and see. And I think it would also be a really niche audience because maybe not

Yeah, some good comments, whether it would work. The idea is actually it would be a radio show, so I would be playing music. I don't have many people listening in anyway. You have to invite them because you don't really get many people from the platform, maybe one or two, but I invite people personally and usually I do it from home. It, but I thought it would be nice in between the music to chat to someone

@MarkR

You know, the more I think about it, the more I think this could work. The interspersed music, the interspersed conversations and then, like, describing your surroundings and so people can use the sounds as well as your words to sort of paint images in their mind. Actually, this is probably a really good thing because there's not enough places, spaces that encourage us to use our imagination in that way, where to some extent, the creative process is happening for us

Everybody that I know who uses that platform does it from their home. Yeah. In fact, I'm going to go live now as I'm walking, just to test it out, to see if anybody tunes in. But if I do it, I will let you know. I've got two platforms, two stations on the platform. One is called the Wolf Man markr Show. And the other one is mark our fitness

@MarkR

And I think Live versus Asynchronous also has these pros and cons and conversations being able to go on like this. It's not to say that conversations can't go on in real life, but we're constantly taking in new experiences and new information in between the back and forth, which I think enriches the conversation. Right. Anyway, that's my thought on it. Anyway, I look forward to hearing how this works out for you with respect to the Broadcast driving show. Just sounds fun

And the second one would be it could be evaluating yourself or initiation of certain personalities that you want to develop through introducing new flavors to you. Do not do it externally because in a way, you're trying to express yourself, but you are also trying to seek validation. Or that's what I'm trying to do. So what's the solution for this? You just have to present the things that you want to express to people and be yourself totally
