Bryan Reeves has given tips to Oprah on mind-body science, and is a relationship insight ninja - but he didn't always lead such a charmed life.

Bryan dropped out of a promising military career, leaving his role as a US Air Force Captain, and feeling completely miserable.

Searching for meaning and happiness, he traveled the world, he rediscovered the thrill of being alive, and the beautiful life he came to live.

Today, Bryan works with men, women and couples as a thriving relationship coach and teaches mindfulness to military vets. His book "The Sex, Flirting, Dating, Hunting & Hoping Diet" is available on Amazon.

"I live my dream by helping other people live theirs … as a transformational life and relationship coach."

New York based independent filmmaker Naftali Beane Rutter came to our attention with a successful KickStarter campaign he ran to fund his upcoming film, WILD ANIMALS. It's about two boys hiding out in the moments immediately following a school shooting.

Naftali has several film projects on the go, all in various stages of production – and on top of this he’s the director of Waterbound Pictures, a production company that specializes in socially relevant stories.

We begin by discussing WILD ANIMALS and what gave him the idea for the film concept, then we move onto the process of creating – the challenges of bringing grand visions into existence, his advice to upcoming filmmakers and the best ways to crowd fund projects.

This week on How'd You Become So Awesome we're interviewing Michael Wilson. Michael is a YouTuber who has the popular channel Coma Niddy, his nerdy alter ego who raps about science.

Michael is signed with PBS digital studios, and his new space-themed cover of the song ‘All About That bass’ has been blowing up on sites like Buzzfeed. Meanwhile, Bustle magazine has described Michael as a “Steve Urkel lookalike”, because he often wears a bowtie and braces. In any case, we think Michael is pretty awesome!

Kantian Universalism
 An idea originated by the philosopher Emmanuel Kant as the "Categorical Imperative" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Categorical_imperative 
"Act only according to that maxim whereby you can, at the same time, will that it should become a universal law." in simpler terms, "if everyone acted this way, would that be a world you'd want to live in". For example, should you borrow money without intending to pay it back? Kant would say no, because if it were a universal action, nobody would lend money to anyone because they know they will never be repaid.
Useful Prosumption: 
For the "Useful" part, listen to Episode 36 of "The Tim Ferriss Show" (podcast) with Alexis Ohanian - for the Prosumption part, read "Revolutionary Wealth" by Alvin and Heidi Toffler
Five books to take to space list!
1. Bill Bryson, "Neither Here Nor There: Travels in Europe"
2. Bertrand Russell "History of Western Philosophy"
3. Neil Gaiman's "Sandman Omnibus" (a giant collection that is still only one book - bam!)
4. The biggest "X-Men" omnibus I can find (again, technically ONE book!)
5. David Kaiser, "How the Hippies Saved Physics: Science, Counterculture, and the Quantum Revival"
