Join me as I share life and leadership lessons from video games, using my method of "Allegamy" - The interpretation of a video game to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a personal development or moral one.

Fun format and great guests
My inner video game nerd loves Jon's conversations and analysis. I should send this show to mom and dad and be like, "see, all those hours of Nintendo really weren't a waste of time!"
Opened My Eyes
I heard Jon’s interview on the Digital Dads Podcast and decided to check out Classically Trained. I love it! It is showing me that I do have skills that I have learned from video games that I just need to apply to real life. It is giving me answers to questions about how I am going to deal with my life at this point and overcome challenges that I am facing. I really appreciate what you are doing Jon and thanks for the lessons that will hopefully get me out of the rut that I’m in.
Implement these life lessons and collect more coins than Mario!
What an awesome, unique perspective! In this podcast, Jonathan releases the 13 year old kid in all of us and defies our parents when they told us video games were just a waste of time! Fantastic insights and life lessons from the characters and games our younger selves (and our current selves) loved! Bravo! 10up!!
