Dan’s and Ed’s guest is Galen Englund, a remarkable and very accomplished young man. This podcast highlights the educational paths that led to his successful career and the ability to make a contribution to himself and to society. Galen is open, factual, and freely discusses his family background, and his educational travails as a challenging and misunderstood student. His early education ranged back and forth between Alaska, New Mexico, Arizona, and Costa Rica. Galen pays special tribute to a cadre of excellent teachers he had in the small southern Arizona town of Patagonia. He was recognized as a Flinn Scholar (2009-2014) and attended Arizona State University, Barrett Honors College, Global Studies program with an emphasis on violence, conflict, and human rights. By age 22, he was deeply involved in the human tragedies of war refugees in Slovenia (what had been Yugoslavia). Please see, Central European University: ceu.academia/GalenLamphereEnglund/curriculumVitae. Unleashed, he has accomplished more in his 20s than most in a lifetime. He has traveled widely in 60+ countries. He presently heads Englund Consulting: Conflict * Data * Research. Galen is working to identify conditions that lead to war and suffering.
