We also hear how he first went to a sleep-away camp for eight weeks at age five where he experienced some of its rather unusual “monitoring” activities.

Also, Dennis shares some pieces of wisdom from his books, lectures, and videos on topics like gratitude, happiness, and freedom. We wrap up the episode hearing about Dennis’ issues with home cooking and his eternal love of music.
