DTD #93: What’s the Worst That Could Happen? Exploring the Fantastical World of David Rees-Thomas

David Rees-Thomas is the author of many short stories and books which span a variety of genres. David has also been Vincent’s head trainer to become a teacher with ECC in Osaka, Japan.

Throughout training, David instilled Vincent and the other teachers with the philosophy: what’s the worst that can happen? You mess up on your first day. You forget a step. You have a rough day. Who cares.

The point is to enjoy the ride; if you’re giving your best, acting fearlessly, going for it, you’ll only improve with time. Vincent took this philosophy to heart, and sees it as a wonderful metaphor for life.

No matter what, you will be okay. So have fun with it.

This episode covers topics including:

– David’s background growing up in Wales

-What brought David to Japan

– What keeps him inspired and encouraged

– Challenging times, and how to overcome them

– The wonder of science fiction

– and much more.
