As “The Satori Group” approaches it’s final weekend of “reWilding”, we can’t help but hope that it may never end. To teach such a valuable lesson of inclusion, immersion and true talent is a feat nothing short of incredible. To celebrate, today we look back on our time with Spike Friedman of “reWilding“- which is about an outsider’s journey into an isolated wooded community “not too far north or too far south of anywhere.”

Check out the dates for reWilding, and get to know Spike a bit more below!

Get to Know Spike Friedman!

PS: When you were young, did you imagine you would be on this particular journey in life? Why or why not?
SF: There was a period of time when I assumed I would do math.  Before that there was a longer period of time when I assumed I’d play center field for the Mariners.  After those periods of time I assumed I would write comedy for a living.  What I do hybridizes those things in a way; while I never imagined I’d be right here, the components of my life make sense.

PS: What is the one thing you splurge on for yourself?
SF: I have a dog named Edgar Martinez Friedman.  He’s fluffy and cute, so I feed him better food than I feed myself.

PS: Best restaurant in Seattle?
SF: Paseo’s.  No doubt.  Smoking Thighs is my go to sandwich there.  I’d eat there more, but I have to stay true to the answer above.

PS: What makes you happy?
SF: Laughing.  Making people laugh.
