““It's so easy to compare someone's act 3 or act 5 to your act 1 or 2.” - Max Zoghbi

In the summer of 2011, Max Zoghbi, Rob Treppendahl, and Bowman hitchens kayaked the entire Mississippi River to raise money for two charities. Now, over 10 years later, best friends Max and Rob sit down to discuss the hard but important lessons they learned on this trip and reflect on how the trip has changed their lives. In this episode they discuss how discomfort leads to personal growth, rites of passage, the dangers of comparison, and the downsides of a life steeped in social media. It is an incredibly vulnerable conversation between two friends, now well into adulthood who discuss some of life's biggest questions and issues.

Max is now a filmmaker, making high quality commercial videos for clients like Lamar Advertising, OtterBox, and Samsung. He is a talented storyteller whose creativity is as sharp as his skills behind the camera.
