    [PODCAST] #388: I’d Really Like To Talk To Chris Cantwell (with Chris Cantwell)

    NOTE: The only things being promoted in today's show are open dialogue and a respect for reality. WARNING: Probably our most explicit and potentially offensive podcast to date. Christopher Cantwell has been an extremely controversial figure in the libertarian conversation for a number of years. He recently lost his Free Talk Live co-hosting spot after promoting the concept of "race realism" on the air. While I disagree with Chris on many important and/or current issues (including immigration, Stefan Molyneux's promotion of r/K theory's application to humans, Donald Trump, the alt-right), I have found his program to be a much-needed intellectual challenge. Even though I began listening to Radical Agenda out of a dark curiosity, I have found Chris to be ...

    [BONUS] A Listener Confronts Brett About Empath-Thon, Learns Empathy (Part Two)

    (AUDIO, 1 HOUR, 55 MINUTES) Andrew listens to the podcast sometimes. A (self-appointed) representative for right-leaning middle America, Andrew finds himself increasingly irritated by the current political conversation and the SJW left. He wanted to offer me a recorded critique of the Empath-Thon series - he even pulled clips from the shows - and it resulted in one of my favorite productions in the last year. In this audio, while I assert my positions, I also try to play the role of the moderator between my views and what Stephanie and Brian have brought to the table.

    [BONUS] Self-Esteem Is A Scam? – Wes and Brett Respond

    (AUDIO, 97 MINUTES) Wes and I respond to an episode of the Tom Woods Show called "Crushing the Self-Esteem Scam Like A Bug." The episode features Dr. Michael Edelstein, a clinical psychologist and proponent of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy who has been a critic of the "self-esteem movement" for decades. Edelstein also believes that Branden's work contains serious problems because, in Edelstein's view, it encourages people to engage in self-rating. In this discussion we use: -Edelstein's website -audio from Tom Woods Ep. 543 Crushing the Self-Esteem Scam Like a Bug -transcripts from Tom Woods Ep. 543 Crushing the Self-Esteem Scam Like a Bug -an email exchange between Branden and Edelstein from 2001 RECOMMENDED: Check this out first.

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

Welcome to SchoolSucksProject.com. 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.
