#socialmedia has really helped accelerate the need to buy #stupid things. We discuss what it means to be #frugal and what it means to be cheap, with some personal finance. If you want to give feedback we would love it,
#commuting over 90 minutes is a strange phenomenon suffered by over 1% of the workforce. That is mind blowing, would you do it? We both talk about the rationale behind that decision some choose to make and why that isn’t something we want to #compromise on ever. Urban planning is definitely partly to blame but so is the government road system for giving people cheap commuting options. If it cost $50 in tolls vs 0 every day of course less would do it.
#Anarcho-capitalism is the advocates the elimination of the state in favor of #individual sovereignty in a free market. Its about peace, and so we had a peaceful argument about our differences on the need for government. This podcast in particular cannot be listened to by snowflakes as it will likely short circuit their precious minds with ideas that shouldn’t be allowed to exist.
#EastAsia is a big place with a lot going on. #china is the big influence and so we spent a lot of time going over its geopolitics. We then dive into the political and currency turmoil in Turkey. Also touched on the stans, south east asia, and east timor.
#russia is a big deal, and boy is there a lot of #educational #ranting going on with the geopolitical expert Jack Mulcaire who seems to have an informed opinion on everything. Russia, Italy, South Korea, we touch bases but its going to be part one of a multi episode series.
Foundation of Geopolitics– Book highlighting Russian imperative. Surprised by how much they have been able to pull off despite their whole game plan being easily available on Wikipedia.
#Feminism is something #republicans should fight against and win the votes of men across the country. Women should have equal rights but its okay be be a man. The Patriarchy is half the population. What do you think? If republicans did that would they lose elections? Trump showed that being a bit of a chauvinist doesn’t matter.
Today Nick and Brian speak with Alexander Juan Antonio Cortes. #Personaltrainer #Podcaster, and #writer. For the last 8 years, he has made health, fitness, and all subjects thereof his area of focus and study
#natural Gas or #Solar or #windenergy Nick and Brian talk about how we get our #electricity and why we think #energy policy should be crafted one way vs another. Its important to remember that Oil isn’t a republican object, and the democrats don’t own sunlight. Its a matter of what is best for humans.

#Facebook is #trending towards more #regulation or at least more attention from the government. We talk about what we think will happen and discuss tech trends across the board. Should a Utility exist, or do non government monopolies exist?
There is a decades long philosophy of tanking as a strategy that has always been looked down on, maybe unspoken at times but definitely there. Losing on purpose for the #draft to build a team. What can be done to structure the teams to remove the incentive to lose.
#JordanPeterson has written a new book this year called the 12 rules for life, and Nick and I review it as well as have a general discussion on his works. These include his biblical series, a self authorship program, and a personality report.
Overall we are very impressed and enjoy his type of intellectual approach to modern topics of the day.
