First things first: Drmaj is pronounced “dermay.”
I first met Morgan almost two years ago when he was helping run a mens’ group I’m in that’s devoted to self improvement. He’s since moved on to other projects, but once you hear him you’ll see why he’s so successful at helping people.
(Side note: I’m a huge believer in men’s groups and mastermind groups in general. I’m currently involved with three of them. Do yourself a favor and join one. Can’t find one you like? Start your own. Invite a few trusted friends and I guarantee you’ll get a positive response.)
Morgan is also the president of PlumeSocial, a still-new but quite successful content marketing agency.

Also, the show opened and closed with the incomparable Roky Erickson. The man was a musical genius, some say even a little mad. But if you read that Wikipedia article you’ll see he was at one time faced ten years in prison for possession of a single joint! That would make me insane, too, and with policies like that you have to wonder who really belongs in an asylum.
Seriously, it appears he truly did suffer from schizophrenia, and my heart goes out to someone with that condition. I like to make jokes about crazy people as much as the next insensitive asshole, but to be imprisoned by your own mind is the worst kind of hell. I’m glad to hear that he seems functional and productive again. Long may he reign.
And I can’t talk about mental health without a shout out to my therapist. She is, in a word, awesome at her job. Need someone to talk to about life struggles? Contact Roianne Ahn.
But that’s not all! Also in this episode I talk about a therapeutic technique called Voice Dialogue. I’ve been using it for a couple months and find it really helpful. It’s not something you can do alone because it requires a facilitator (that is, a therapist). Check out this introduction and consider applying it in your own life.
