Justin Vacula

I’m creating podcast episodes offering practical wisdom for everyday life — solutions to modern human concerns — informed by the ancient philosophical school of Stoicism popularized by thinkers including Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius. Improve your quality of life by implementing a solid mental framework informed by Stoic Philosophy!

I explore topics including gratitude; acceptance; overcoming adversity; finding meaning in life; moderation; dealing with change; friendship; loneliness; and anger.

Justin Vacula — host of the Stoic Solutions Podcast — completed his Master’s-level Clinical Mental Health Counseling studies at Marywood University in Scranton, PA. He also received bachelor’s degrees in Philosophy and Psychology, a minor in Professional Writing, and the W.A. Kilburn Memorial Award for Philosophy from King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. He worked as an outpatient therapist providing counseling services to elementary school students and working with their families. He has also worked with the Arc of Luzerne County’s Transition to Community Employment program as a teacher’s assistant and job coach alongside adult learners with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

He has appeared on and hosted various radio shows and podcasts; participated in formal debates and discussions; was a guest speaker for college-level courses; was featured in local, national, and international news; has been invited to speak at various national, regional, and statewide events; engaged in activism surrounding the separation of church and state; and has hosted monthly Stoic Philosophy discussion groups for the Humanist Association of Greater Philadelphia.
