For Talk Show Hosts and Podcasters:
Hello talk show hosts and podcasters. Justin Locke here. If you are looking for guests for your show I hope you will consider me as such!
Big Picture: I like to talk about how to make your life better by disrupting the status quo. I speak from personal experience. While growing up as a "poor kid" on a farm in Ohio, I droppped out of public high school, which led my my going to the rich kid private school. As a bass player, even though I was mostly self taught, I started playing in the Boston Pops when I was 20. I have written plays that are done in major venues all over the world and my (self published) books have sold over 15,000 copies.
In pursuing my dreams, I discovered that most of the advice offered in this department is either woefully inadequate or just totally wrong. Also, the world's best conductors contradict all standard management dogma. So I started to think, speak, and write about the best ways to reach a given goal. Being smart, positive, and persistent is not enough. It is also key to recognize and discard the many limiting beliefs, dogmas, and oppression techniques that come at us every day.
Possible topics: The purpose of art education; self publishing; challenging the "divide and conquer" techniques of modern political propaganda; the many problems of the "improvement-ology" industry; the management of shame regarding failure and stupidity; the difference between poor kid schools and rich kid schools; and, re: my latest book, managing emotional energy. (For more ideas, and sample videos, check out my books.)
I am a big fan of Peter Drucker, Niccolo Machiavelli, Bertrand Russell, and Gerald Weinberg.
I have appeared as an author@google and as an occasional guest co-host on CBS Radio.
Let's have some fun. To schedule me for an appearance on your show, call me at 781-330-8143, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
