In this episode, recoded live on May 23rd 2009, I wrap up the second season of the podcast. I bring up the average number of listeners and discuss my ambitions to bring Season 3 levels back up to Season 1 levels. The problem with this goal being that only listeners can advice me on how to accomplish this. I also talk of my book in progress A New Beginning and my forthcoming CD Say What To Want to Say. If things go the way I would like, these projects along with my podcast will help me build a great media empire (yeah right).
I also discuss the
dream adult life and the disparity between the dream and the reality that I
have covered in Season 2. It is my hope that Season 2 proves that I can adapt to
such a disparity. Lastly, I talk of my plans for Season 3. Expect it to be more
planned out and dare I say produced more infrequently than Season 2. The Season
premier will also be a live Blogtalk show. Current plans have it occurring the
weekend of the July 4th 2009. The official announcement will be posted here on Nicnacjak.com
Till then have a great summer!

In this episode I reflect on the challenges I faced and covered during the course of Season 2. Specifically, the trauma of being unable to fill a role of consequence after investing nearly a third of ones life in education. How does one adapt to the demands of the modern world; a world that seems indifferent to the individuals' endeavor to qualify themselves for skilled labor. What can we do as a society to both improve our current circumstances and ensure that we don't repeat the same mistakes?
I also solicit your opinion on theses topics and all prior topics brought up in the season. I will be hosting the Season 2 Finale at 1pm pacific (19:00zulu) on May23rd, 2009. You can pick up the live stream of the show during showtime at www.blogtalkradio.com /nicnacjak and call the show at (646) 716-7136.

This episode starts the end of season reflection process. What makes people like me think they are entitled to a certain living standard? Is this a reasonable expectation to have? Where did it come from anyway? Lastly, what can be gained when delayed gratification is delayed so far that it is never gratified?
