Justin Bonomo on Artificial Intelligence, Acro Yoga & Toxic Masculinity | Ep: 44
With over $60 million in live tournament earnings, Justin Bonomo sits squarely at the top of the all-time money leaderboard for poker. No stranger to controversy or strong opinions, Justin opens up to The Heart of Poker’s Kara Scott about topics ranging from Burning Man, what he wishes people knew about him, his greatest fears and his idea of an absolutely perfect day.
Justin reveals to Kara what he’d love his life to look like in the future and the importance of connection, love and friendships. They pull at the threads of misperception around the term ‘toxic masculinity’ and dive into how important it is for men and boys to be able to talk comfortably about their feelings and the actual strength that shows.
Content warning: While talking about his early struggles with depression Justin and Kara touch on the difficult subject of dealing with suicidal ideation and what it can be like to face that and come through it. If anyone listening is feeling a similar darkness please reach out for help or call a suicide hotline in your area.
