Special Guest, Wendy, joins me as we banter about life in a pandemic. We discuss the origins and consequences on Covid-19. What’s driving us crazy on social media? What are we doing to protect ourselves and help other people?
What exactly is Socialism? Is it just another name for Communism? Is Bernie Sanders really a Socialist? Is America already a Socialist country? I dig in and try to figure this out because there seems to be a lot of confusion on social media about it. I also tell you what Ricky Martin has in common with Covid-19.
Yes, people make real arguments in favor of slavery. No matter how right they might be, they’re still wrong. Plus I get giddy about the prospect of political chaos and explain what’s making David Miscavige curse his accountants.
Who is manipulating us and how are they doing it? How hard is it becoming to discern truth from reality? It’s getting tougher, which requires us to be wiser. I discuss the rise of deep fakes and social media manipulation. Plus some news about Michael Bloomberg caused me to reflect on the career of “The Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase. I also field a listener comment about the death of Kobe Bryant.
When a celebrity falls from grace, can we still laugh? Can we still cheer? Are we still inspired? We don’t have a good way to hold the bad with the good. Too often we ignore one side or the other because we can’t stand the conflict in our own minds. We need a better way and the tragic passing of Kobe Bryant reignited those questions. Is he allowed to move forward in life and death without the allegations of rape (or at least blatant infidelity)? How do we talk about his victim? What about Bill Cosby, Martin Luther King Jr., and Michael Jackson. Is there a point when excellence surpasses sin? Are there sins that negate excellence?
On the lighter side of the episode I discuss the emergence of Coke Zero amist the absence of New Coke. We also listen in to a portion of Arthur Brooks’ address at the National Prayer Breakfast.
My violent heart gets exposed by a barking dog and as a result I’m left pondering Zombie Culture. Plus the wacky story of a small religious commune made up of old ladies.
Must a Pro-Life voter side with Donald Trump? Is he their only choice? It seems like a no-brainer to most. I’ve got a different take on the matter than what you’ll hear in most places. Plus, I tell you a phrase I can never hear in the way it’s intended and I give you your best shot at predicting the Super Bowl winner.
Is it better to do the right thing for the right reason, right away. . .or is it better to wait? That doesn’t seem like a hard question, but in some circumstances it might be better to wait things out and let other people take care of it.
How do you take on the master of Twitter? Someone figured out how to take on the master at his own game with funny results. Plus, what you need to know about the Astros sign stealing scandal and why all pitchers are liars.
It’s time you know about the worst thing I ever did. I’m not saying I’m proud of it, but at least it was terrible. Plus, why you’ll never change my mind about anything ever. Stop trying.
You too can run a highly efficient business and I’ll teach you the basic premise to make it happen but you shouldn’t lie to people while you do it. Plus, the answer to the mystery of why good people do bad things.
