Show Notes

On this week's episode, I am in Greystones, Ireland. Before coming, I asked my Instagram followers if they could recommend anyone in Ireland that I could bring on Slo Mo. Pretty much every other message was for The Happy Pear, David and Stephen Flynn, and now I know why. These  brothers, identical twins, are two of the kindest, most positive, and most hospitable people I've met in my life. They took me to their farm, store, and restaurant, force-feeding me on levels I've only experienced in the Middle East. After an early life of adventure trying to find their identity, they started  an organic store that became a full fledged venture, and now also a podcast, around making healthy choices. They are what we all try to embody when we aim to live our purpose and spread love in the process.

I wanted to get serious with this conversation, and sure, we did. But in reality, the biggest benefit of this episode, one that has made it among my favorites ever, is that it's just pure fun.

Listen as we discuss:

  • What it's like growing up as twins, with unconditional love from the start.
  • Their trajectory from searching for identity to building a food revolution.
  • The need for rites of passage and the value of uncertainty in travel.
  • What we can learn from the whirling and wandering dervishes.
  • Veganism and how to incorporate it without being radical.
  • When you grow your own food, you savor every piece.
  • Food is the center of every economy.
  • How can you get involved in the food revolution?
  • Manifesting, spirituality, and blah blah blah, let's just enjoy this moment.
  • Their secret to happiness: look at life through childlike wonder.
