But in their defense there was poison gas. But in our defense we all know how this kind of training turned out for the Soviets. Hour 1: Is a great awakening coming? A large Un-iversity group (with some new voices) examines common motives behind that sense of duty to force this awaking on people in our lives. How to integrate who we actually are with what we present to friends, family, co-workers. Hour 2: We went to a No Agenda podcast meetup. Future of School Sucks, growth ...

    [BONUS] The Discomfort Zone (s04e01) – Imposterpreneurship

    Andrew is in the hot seat this time and we're talking about imposter syndrome. What is it? Why does Andrew have it? How do we cure it? We'll also discuss how knowing your core values aids in decision making. And then you'll enjoy a spot-on dream analysis. Nothing crazy, just the standard after a protest is held in his back yard, man takes a car with a Styrofoam interior to find the police but encounters a bear and fights the bear and then wants to take it to a vet so he gives it sedatives that turn it into a kitten and he eventually brings it home where it turns back into a bear and is now his pet dream ...

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.
