EP 15 - Virtue Challenge - Silence w/ Jeff Dodds

Stephen J. CarusoOliver Pappas and myself recently launched, hosted and completed a 13 Day Virtue Challenge via Instagram Live.  Daily conversations exploring Ben Franklin’s 13 human virtues as a framework to elevate our clarity, enhance our performance and renew our commitment to cultivate the habit of excellence in life and in Faith.  We are relaunching all episodes on the Alto podcast!

In this conversation I explore and unpack the virtue of Silence "Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; Avoid trifling Conversation" w/ Jeff Dodds!


Jeff is a true outdoorsman, 3rd generation bow hunter, fly fishermen and white water rafting guide, author, photographer, former seminarian and college athlete who lives in the beautiful mountain town of Gunnison, CO!

In addition to hearing about a seven-day solo epic bow hunting adventure, Jeff reflects and shares insights on:
  • the beauty of silence
  • the fear of silence
  • the necessity of silence
