Three Words Podcast
A bite-sized podcast about choices.
Foster A Child
Most of us spend our lives running away from hard things. But what if we intentionally turned around to run toward something that is equal parts difficult and worthwhile? This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Dr. Beau Johnson reflect on their journeys as foster parents of a collective twenty-eight children over the past twenty years.
Just For Today
One of the most persistent and pressing questions that plagues us is, “What if I don’t have what it takes?” This week, Dr. Michael Brown joins faith-based speaker and author Barb Roose as she encourages us to muster up only enough strength, courage, and discipline for this very moment in time.
Finish Your Degree
Pursuing a college degree may not be for everyone, but finishing what we start is one of the most essential ingredients of success. This week, first-generation college student Dr. Michael Brown shares the studio with professional saxophonist Mike Williams in a conversation about grit, gumption, and going the distance.
Rethink Social Media
In order to experience the radical changes we desire, we may actually need to make some radical choices. This week, Dr. Michael Brown explores what inspired web developer Greg Jenkins to trade in his smart phone and challenges everyone to do the same.
Balance Is Impossible
We may be able to do it all, but we certainly can’t do it all today. This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Dr. Beau Johnson look toward a 2024 where we can be healthier and more alive.
Shut Your Mouth
We could all benefit from the advice to stop talking so much. This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Casey Greenawalt do their best not to interrupt each other in this conversation about the key to healthy communication.
Ask Them Out
How many of us have waited so long to ask someone out that by the time we finally muster the courage, they are already dating someone else? This week, Dr. Michael Brown and single dad Ricky May consider how to take dating seriously without taking it so seriously.
Act Your Age
The most important part of growing up is the growing. This week, Dr. Michael Brown and 19-year-old sophomore business major Jason Poleski encourage us to maximize our lives through every season.
Add Another Chair
If every encounter with another human being is sacred, why don’t we create opportunities for more of those encounters to take place? This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Dr. Tyler Schwanz consider how to invite and include the stranger, acquaintance, and friend-of-a-friend.
Vote For Others
Early voting is officially open for two major issues on the Ohio ballot – abortion access (Issue 1) and the legalization of marijuana (Issue 2). This week, Dr. Michael Brown and family medicine resident physician Dr. Justin Brown have a thoughtful and nuanced conversation about justice, autonomy, and what it looks like to change our minds.
Be Completely Honest
Something powerful and freeing happens when we have the courage to tell the truth. This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Bahamian basketball player and coach Lourawls “Tum Tum” Nairn explore the spiritual, relational, and physical benefits to saying what we really feel.
Ask The Question
Why is my boss so evasive and confusing? Why are my employees so clueless and unproductive? This week, Dr. Michael Brown and recently hired COO Nick Gillispie offer a helpful communication strategy for young professionals and leaders alike.
