The Story:

As a wise and curious wandering man once said “Take care of today, and tomorrow will take care of itself.” The truth is, few people have the courage and confidence in themselves to live their lives by these words. What if you were put in a position where you had no money, and no way to maintain your survival except for your skills and the mutual compassion of those around you? Better yet, what if you put yourself in that position knowing that it was the only way that you could truly be honest with yourself. That is one of the many stories of a curious individual who goes by the name of Kenny Palurintano.

To step out into the world with only $200, spend that $200 within the first couple of days feeding your friends, without knowing exactly where your next meal is coming from… might take some king kong sized cojones. Or it might just take a little self-knowledge and a little faith in oneself.

In this episode we talk to Kenny about a few of his adventures, his ways of getting by, and his ideas of an ideal society – how mature people working together and working on their passions might lead us to a better world of abundance and happiness. Kenny provides us with some real-life examples of communities and events that already exist using similar tribal or family-based models.

So join us on another bone-rattling, dumpster-diving, heart-filling adventure on … The Paradise Paradox!
