In the spirit of resolutions, self-improvement, and growth in this new year, we’re talking about mentors: those wise, sage-like figures who guide us through this life.

Tom, Ryan, and Jacob talk about their favorite mentors in books and movies, sharing some of their own mentorship experiences from years past. What qualities do all these figures share in common? We also discuss the concept of mentoring a new generation — including whether we feel we’re even capable of such a thing.

It’s an awesome kickstart to a new year and a new decade as we recommit to producing two podcast episodes per month!

It’s all thanks to our 170+ patrons on Patreon. We do what we do because of you!

Pledging even $1/month also grants you access to The YOBaLOGUE, our 30-minute bonus podcast that features listener feedback, bloopers, intro riffs and tangents, and other cut content from this episode.
