How are you staying active while many gyms are still closed? 

My wife (@ncmerde) and I (@thereadiness) are posting short partner workouts to Instagram. Motivating and challenging each other to keep moving!

What is your favorite podcast?

Throughline (NPR): deep dive into timely topics and great long-form journalism 

Left, Right and Center (KCRW): civilized, yet provocative with debate from all sides from the political spectrum. 

What is your favorite book?

GRIT by Angela Duckworth: My latest and greatest read. Self-help backed by scientific research; motivating and revelatory

1984 by George Orwell: I reread this book every year and it still shocks me and keeps me in suspense. 

What is your favorite healthy snack? 

Peanut Butter and Celery - maybe with some raisins. Yes, ants on a log!!

What is your favorite TV Show? 

Peaky Blinders (BBC/Netflix): Not for the faint of heart. Gritty but slick, great story-telling that tracks real historical events. Cillian Murphy is a dark and steamy anti-hero. 

What’s your favorite social distancing activity?

Catching up on my reading list, puzzling with my wife, and playing with my cat “Beezus”. 

What’s on Your Feel Good Playlist? 

  1. Brandy by Looking Glass
  2. Best of my Love by The Emotions 
  3. Hold of Loosely by 38 Special

Thanks, Dan! We’ll see you in the app!
