In this episode, Larry Hagner and Gary John Bishop reunite for the fifth time to catch up on each other's lives, including Gary's recent trip to Germany with his sons who are pursuing their dreams of becoming professional soccer players. They also discuss the upcoming data summit and how their experiences tie into the book they are working on. One of the key themes explored in the podcast is the importance of understanding family dynamics. Larry Hagner and Gary John Bishop discuss how studying oneself and reflecting on their own upbringing is crucial for personal growth and effective parenting. Gary John Bishop uses the metaphor of "biting your own teeth" to illustrate the difficulty of self-reflection. It is impossible to physically bite your own teeth, just as it can be challenging to objectively observe and analyze oneself. However, Gary John Bishop emphasizes that this introspection is necessary in order to gain a deeper understanding of one's own parenting style and the impact it has on their children. Gary also shares their own realization from the book, highlighting the tendency to either repeat or reject aspects of their own childhood. He admit that he had not previously viewed his parents as individuals with their own experiences and challenges. Gary’s book helped the host recognize the importance of understanding their parents' stories and how they influenced their own upbringing.
