How A Lost Poet Guides Others with Atticus

Today we’re coming to you with the first episode of July’s theme: adventure! We’ll be covering adventure in all forms — from classic travel to psychedelics to finding new adventures in your relationships and your own backyard.

We’re very excited to bring you our first conversation of the month with Atticus, the infamous masked poet. Originally from Canada, currently residing in L.A., Atticus is an anonymous online figure with over a million Instagram followers. He’s a New York Times bestselling author who has taken the world by storm with his beautiful words and powerful themes of love and strength of human spirit. We get into such a great conversation today, talking about his past and how he was originally introduced to the power of poetry, how his mask has allowed him to be more vulnerable in the spotlight, what his life has been like since publishing his poetry, and how he finds the beauty in everyday life.

We can’t wait for you to tune into today’s conversation, but for now, we’ll leave you with one of his quotes on the theme of adventure:

“I want to be with someone who dreams of doing everything in life and nothing on rainy Sunday afternoons.” — Atticus
