Stoic Solutions Podcast

Stoic Solutions Podcast

Justin Vacula

I'm creating podcast episodes offering practical wisdom for everyday life -- solutions to modern human concerns -- informed by the ancient philosophical school of Stoicism popularized by thinkers including Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius. Improve your quality of life by implementing a strong mental framework informed by Stoic Philosophy! I explore topics such as gratitude; acceptance; overcoming adversity; finding meaning in life; moderation; dealing with change; friendship; loneliness; and anger. -- Justin Vacula -- host of the Stoic Solutions Podcast -- serves as an counselor-in-training intern in a school-based behavioral health program while studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Marywood University in Scranton, PA; hosts monthly meetings for the Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA) Freethought Society; and plays poker at various casinos in the Eastern United States. Vacula received bachelor's degrees in Philosophy and Psychology, a minor in Professional Writing, and the distinguished W.A. Kilburn Memorial Award for Philosophy from King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania where he worked as a peer tutor at the campus's writing center. He has also worked with the Arc of Luzerne County's Transition to Community Employment program as a teacher's assistant and job coach alongside adult learners with intellectual and developmental disabilities. He has appeared on and hosted various radio shows and podcasts; participated in formal debates and discussions; was a guest speaker for college-level courses; was featured in local, national, and international news; has been invited to speak at various national, local, and statewide events; engaged in a good deal of activism surrounding separation of church and state; and has hosted monthly Stoic Philosophy discussion groups for the Humanist Association of Greater Philadelphia. Justin regularly exercises; maintains a mostly vegan diet; enjoys metal music; listens to several podcasts; volunteers as a member of the website and media team for the Greyhawk Reborn Dungeons & Dragons campaign; and plays D&D at events throughout the Eastern United States.
