Hosts & Guests
About This Episode
Boston Blake is the host of the Mythic podcast. Over the past 20 years, he’s been a professional actor, writer, massage therapist, and life coach. And like any legit actor, he has worked in nearly every area of service and hospitality. (He’d like you to know he loved it. Well, most of it.) This varied background has led him to an understanding of a fundamental paradox: We all share a common human experience, but every human’s experience is totally unique. He’d like to be “a bridge to a greater understanding.” You know, like Wonder Woman. But he’ll settle for course instructor. Boston holds a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies from C.I.I.S. and is a Certified Trainer for Everything DiSC®. He enjoys creative cursing, Wonder Woman, alliteration, and writing about himself in the third person.
