McPherson College Bulldog Adventures - @mcbulldogadv (instagram & …
 
You've likely heard of the Progressive Movement which was started by presidents Woodrow Wilson and Teddy Roosevelt, among others, and has continued to this day. However, we're now seeing something I'm calling the "Regressive Movement" which uses the past as a tool, not for growth, but for blame. And, it keeps people stuck in a victimized mindset wi…
 
We talk a lot about leadership here at Wolf & Iron, but does this mean that men should always be the de facto leader? Speaking particularly of leadership roles in the home, this episode talks about why I believe men are called to lead. Spoiler, it's not because we're always better at it.By Mike Yarbrough
 
In this month’s episode, Rachel talks with Stephen Bridenstine of the Flint Hills Discovery Center. Rachel uncovers the draw of the place. Hint: it sounds as though it caters to all ages, nature lovers and science lovers. The center is located in Manhattan, KS and so it can be both a destination in its own right as well as temporary exploratory sto…
 
We're over a decade familiar with social media. The ability to connect with people all over the world in an instant is now something we take for granted. But, why do we do it? What do we hope to get from it. As many people are looking for alternatives to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, do we really know what we want to accomplish on a new platfor…
 
Have you ever found yourself reacting to a situation rather than responding in the way you would like? We all have a natural instinct to respond to arguments and frustrations, but learning how to craft a "response" that we can be proud of takes time. In this episode I'll walk you through the difference between the two and how to get to a place of r…
 
We've been unfortunately conditioned to focus on the founder, the owner, the entrepreneur behind a brand. In doing so, many budding business owners miss out on the fundamental ingredient to making a business thrive, especially during those early stages of growth: a team.By Mike Yarbrough
 
Hello, Kansas! Uncovering Kansas Podcast co-producer Geoff here, with this month’s show notes. I pitched the idea for this month’s episode to Rach back in late May and, paraphrasing now, it went a little something like this: “Not now,” I had said. “I understand things are still in a fragile state. But when we start to come out of the pandemic, I th…
 
I'll be honest: this isn't something I want to talk about. I really wish we didn't have to deal with this next, but it is very apparent that pedophilia is going to be the next big push by the liberals. Men, we have to be aware of the reality of this. As much as I don't want to talk about this or deal with this, it is imperative that we do.…
 
Every 4 years or so we're presented with some less-than-stellar candidates for president. When we look at the political landscape and see the types of people who typically run for office, we may wonder "where are all of the 'Founding Father' types of men that this country was built upon?"By Mike Yarbrough
 
Rachel sits down with kristopher swanson from The Neighboring Movement, a Wichita based community development organization to talk about how to uncover the unique assets you have in your own neighborhood. There is a parallel between the mission of Uncovering Kansas: to inspire Kansans to learn more about the gifts we have within our state, and the …
 
One of the good things to come from the COVID lockdown is that many of you have started growing a beard! Maybe you've past the itchy stage or maybe you keep shaving it off before you do. In any case, in this special Beardsman PSA I'll share some insight into how and why some of the beard grooming products work.…
 
We've got to be honest with ourselves. We say that we "Want" something, but so often do the opposite. A competing hierarchy of desires causes us to miss out on becoming the man we long to be. At the end of the day, if we keep not achieving our "wants" it's because we have other, stronger desires that are winning out.…
 
Your co-producer, Geoffrey, here with show notes for the latest episode of Uncovering Kansas. Rachel talks with the hosts of the WORST COMIC PODCAST EVER. A fabulous episode of nerdom and the sharing of shared passions. If I were writing a comic book script for these guys and their show it would begin like this: Summary Three longtime friends have …
 
Greetings Uncovering Kansas listeners and supporters. June 2020's episode is about art and science and connections. Rachel sits down and talks with Kelly Yarbrough, an artist and a Kansan by choice. Of course, Kelly discusses her artistic process. She also talks about how the seasons and science of Kansas influences her creative effort. What become…
 
There is no ‘they’ that fixes what needs fixing, or improves what needs improving. There is ‘us.’ You. And me. Kansans understand this. In this month’s episode Rachel talks with Lisse Regehr of Thrive Allen County, an organization convening, coordinating, and championing the ideas and efforts of Allen County residents. Listen to examples of a commu…
 
In April 2020’s episode of Uncovering Kansas, Rachel talks with Kansan Sage Scott, a travel blogger. They talk about travel vs vacation; of inspiring someone to travel and explore rather than attempting to influence visiting a specific spot or locale; and they give shout-outs and share BIG love for Abilene and Nicodemus Kansas. Sage Scott arrived i…
 
Over the last decade or so, the term Memento Mori has become rather well known. It's a call for men to wake up, get off their arses and seize the day. It translates as "Remember you are mortal" or "Remember that one day you will die". While this perspective is certainly needed, it's only 1/2 of the equation, and, I believe that it is actually makin…
 
Economic Development in Kansas is changing. A banner program and important effort driving this initiative is the Kansas Framework for Growth, a comprehensive strategy for economic growth in the coming 15-20 years. More than 1,000 Kansans have given their input into the process. We first heard of the strategy and program as citizens. And, wanting to…
 
Confession time: I used to be in Amway. Yeah, it's a bit odd for me to even think back on that time. But, I was young and it was my first introduction to the concept of being successful. Coming from humble beginnings as I did, the idea of making it big was tremendously powerful. If nothing else, I learned how to dream for the future I wanted and sa…
 
I've heard from a number of fathers how they long for their kids to know the joys of an 80s childhood, free of technology and plenty of time outside with your friends. I've often longed for this as well...even as an adult! There is no mistaking that the world we live in has changed. Things have gotten soft and along with it, ourselves and the next …
 
Heat sells. It gets clicks and comments and shares and is the primary tactic used by the average media. Some heat is good, no doubt. Truth can be a type of heat that we need to refine us. Light, on the other hand, can be used to showcase goodness or draw our attention to a problem, but it does so without inflaming the situation. Generating light in…
 
Stephen Mansfield spoke at our church's men's retreat in 2019 and really hit home the need for a band of brothers. Study after study shows that men are lonely like never before. But, are we even aware of how isolated we are? Do we recognize the need for loyal men in our lives that will stand shoulder to shoulder with us?…
 
A man who is working the heed the High Call on his life longs for others to discuss and debate the great ideas of the ages with. My guest, Scott Hambrick of Online Great Books, and I talk about how Online Great Books brings about the community and accountability to continue diving deep into the great books of old.…
 
True transparency is a rare thing these days. While we may still ask for prayers on social media, it's typically for someone else. We tend to showcase the good times and leave out the negative, and that actually makes sense in a public forum. When life is delivering us a swift kick to our salty hammock, we don't need trite responses: we need a brot…
 
As a kid, I had a hard time focusing on schoolwork...or pretty much any work that I didn't find interesting. Much of this was the result of simply being a boy and trying to fit an energetic kid into an overly structured environment. But, as an adult I've noticed some of the same tendencies. Sitting still for long periods of time doing work that doe…
 
We've all heard the mantra of "finding ourselves". Apparently, this can be a lifelong journey but it often looks a lot like a midlife crisis that lasts for a decade or more. After many years of living life as an adult, people are quick to throw off responsibility in favor of the freedom they have been missing out on. Too often, though, the pendulum…
 
This is my 4th year of having a specific word to focus on. In hindsight, this has had more of a lasting effect on me than goal setting. Goals can often be marked by behavior change, but adhering to a word is to adhere to a definition...or a defining of one's character; it's much more introspective.By Mike Yarbrough
 
New Year's resolutions have long been out of favor. Personally, I like marking the new year with some goals, but I also don't like a lot of structure on those goals. One of the best ways to set goals for the new year is to do so with some reflection on the past year. That's where the Start. Stop. Keep. method comes into play. Happy New Year!…
 
Rachel and Geoff briefly review highlights from the podcast's second (2019) season, and discuss our upcoming 3rd season and beyond. A few side projects are shared with listeners and then -- WOW! Rachel uncovers for our listeners an absolutely fascinating figure from Kansas history. A pioneer, in multiple ways, Emanuel Haldeman-Julius.…
 
Think of someone you admire...how awesome would it be to get your brain wired to think the same way their brain does? We can all use some outside perspective on how people approach life. We then take the parts that make sense to us and adapt that to our own approach. In this episode I share a bit on how I process things, in hopes it may be helpful …
 
Accountability is quite the buzzword these days. Churches are pushing for it. Men's groups of all kinds are pushing for it. It's certainly needed, but accountability in itself does not result in the kind of change men are looking for. It should be seen as a necessary piece to growth, but not the solution.…
 
Love frozen snacks? How about all natural ingredients, do they make you smile? Does the thought of a small business creating jobs that foster skill development and increased independence for people living with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (ID/D) make you smile from ear to ear? We are yes for all three and that’s why Rachel interviewe…
