    [BONUS] The Discomfort Zone (s04e03) – Good Luck! Don’t Be Yourself!

    Introduced as "quite possibly most annoying episode of The Discomfort Zone ever." But do Andrew and Brett deliver?!?! You decide. Andrew has a romantic experience and declares himself "Fit Costanza." Brett understands what Andrew is saying; he is also fit, neurotic, and has had romantic experiences in his life too. Together they've taken the red pill, but not the whole bottle. This is a conversation about reconciling this red pill awareness with the desire for authenticity and vulnerability when the right romantic opportunity comes along.

CORE TOPIC - Why does school suck?

John Taylor Gatto

CORE TOPIC - What does self-directed education look like?

Peter Gray - Self-Directed Education

The realization that school sucks actually marks the beginning of a new and exciting educational journey.

Welcome to We strive to provide young people with the building blocks of intellectual, financial and lifestyle independence. This includes in-depth explorations into higher-level thinking, organization and productivity, emotional and physical health, habit and lifestyle optimization, history and philosophy, psychology, self-directed learning, entrepreneurship, and communication/negotiation strategies. It's all essential information, but almost none of it is taught in school. Our content is ideal for frustrated high school and college students, home-educating parents, and adults who are interested in independently furthering their education and achieving self-actualization.
