530: Cassiano Laureano, part 2: Burpees for the body, bonzai tree for the heart and mind

Cassiano’s first episode led to more listener comments than most. People loved his enthusiasm. I find guys who know martial arts tend to speak with a security. The opposite of insecure or desperate. So I think people found him accessible and engaging.

I think you’ll find him more so this episode. Of course, we talk a bit about his world record for burpees. As you can tell from this episode’s title, he fulfilled his commitment by buying a bonzai tree. He loved it! He shares his experience buying it, caring for it, and designing it, or grooming it. I’m not sure the right word.

Sadly, I lost the video of the tree, but you can hear him describing it. You may remember from his first episode that he saw a missing connection to nature for humans in cities. I think you’ll agree that the tree’s value and effect on Cassiano transcends just something he takes care of. We talk about values and how to enjoy life.
