Welcome to the 37th episode of the Give A Heck Podcast!


Join Dwight Heck and his guest, Mark Ryall, as they talk about connecting with your genuine self. Mark worked as a college educator and public sector consultant before writing his first speculative fiction novel, “Age-Decoded.”


He wrote the book to understand the inevitable rise of more technological advancements like CRISPR. Today, Mark shares his thoughts on how technology will alter the human condition and why it must only be developed to serve humanity.


In this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • How to effectively adapt in life and affect change in others by caring for yourself first.
  • Being who we pretend to be and why we must be careful who we choose to be.
  • Choosing who you want to be and overcoming others’ uncomfortableness of who you should be.
  • The importance of affirmation and how it can help someone find their genuine self.
  • Technological advancements as a significant pivot for humanity and how mortality gives us purpose.
  • And much more!
