The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

“There’s some brutal optics, and you see the crappy things going on out there, and every now and then we’re reminded that there’s way way more good than there is bad,” says Yancy Culp, co-host of the DEKA Series.


Today, Jarod, Yancy and Johnny Waite all get together to talk about what it means to be grateful and how caring for others will impact your life. In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Importance of giving and being grateful
  • Be thankful for your journey and the opportunities and people you meet along the way
  • There’s way more good on the Earth than bad
