Podcast Episode Title
Season One Finale: The Last of Us Business Journey Comes to a Close
Wednesday, December 13, 2023
In the season finale of the School of Moxie Podcast, host Mary Williams reflects on the journey of Season 1, centered around the video game adaptation, “The Last of Us.” She shares insights from the official podcast of the show, where creators originally aimed for ten episodes but discovered a more compelling narrative by merging the first two episodes into one. This parallels the concept of completing hard tasks, and Mary emphasizes the importance of facing challenges and growing through them.
Mary delves into her work with entrepreneurs, integrating human design into business activities, revealing her own identity as a Manifestor, and the role of creative urges. She discusses her future plans for Season 2, focusing on Apple TV’s “Ted Lasso,” introducing a character-based approach to analyzing the show’s three seasons in the context of entrepreneurship.
Listeners are encouraged to catch up on “The Last of Us” and engage in self-reflection by listening to the podcast, reading “Bittersweet” by Susan Cain, and practicing intuitive content consumption. Mary believes both shows are inherently feminist and calls for a takedown of toxic masculinity and femininity within ourselves.
The episode concludes with gratitude for the audience’s support, an invitation to stay connected through social media and newsletters, and an exciting teaser for Season 2 with “Ted Lasso.”
Quote from the episode
In this Generator world, I’m one of the rarer types in human design, at about only 9% of the world’s population sharing my type along with me. Manifestors are the only human design type that has energy built for initiating new things that this world has never seen before.
~ Mary Williams, host of The School of Moxie Podcast
