This week I sit down with Joenrhuz “JR” Tabanda, host and audio producer of the Time Capsule Show, a podcast sharing the everyday stories of everyday people.
Each episode asks six thoughtful questions that guests can use to define their life in the 21st century at this moment.
We wanted to give people hope, especially young people that may feel alone.
JR talks about what their goals were with the show, and how that’s taken shape, and how the pandemic gave them the opportunity to put these goals to fruition.
We Are All Connected
JR and his podcast team and co-hosts share the belief that everyone has a story, and that’s why they appear on the Time Capsule Show.
We just try and put up stories that are timely, powerful, and help us understand the culture of the time we’re going through.
One thing they’re particularly determined to do with the show is to give the guests a platform, and share their point of view, whether it fits with the hosts or not .
On Taking a Different Path
With a Filipino background, it was expected that both JR and his brother would take a career in the medical profession, or a similarly professional one. But that was a very different path from the one he envisioned.
While he may yet take that career path, for now he’s more than satisfied and challenged by the route he’s currently on.
Everybody has an opinion, but it’s up to you what value you place in that opinion.
Heroes Don’t Always Wear Capes
While he’d never describe himself as a tennis player, or even someone that has just a passing interest in the sport from a playing point of view, his all-time hero hails from it.
Rafael Nadal epitomizes everything we should aspire to be, in our personal and professional lives.
People’s expectations of you don’t mean anything, and if you set your mind to anything you can achieve it.
