UNCOMMON w/ Varangian

Uncommon with Chance Lunceford

Uncommon w/ Michael P Senger
Michael P Senger is a lawyer, CPA(inactive) and author of several in-depth articles and a masterfully researched book -Snake Oil: How Xi Jinping Shut Down the World- in which he details the life and times of China and its dictatorial leader Xi Jinping as the backdrop to a journey down Narrative-Forensics Lane. The destination? A devious, global and ruthless campaign of totalitarianism the brilliance, scale and malevolence of which are stunning in magnitude. Want more from Michael? Snake Oil Twitter

UNCOMMON w/ Zero HP Lovecraft

Graeme is a dear friend, though he and his wonderful family live on the other side of the world, and it's been a pleasure getting to know him over the past couple of years. In this inaugural episode of Uncommon, Graeme and I explore meaningful living, MANA, purpose, creativity and more. Enjoy uncommonly.

Logocentrifugal 136 - William Selden
William is a dear friend and reluctant mentor. This was the last episode of the podcast in the Logocentrifugal body. That body died in this conversation, and it would take Uncommon months before it learned to crawl. This was a fitting end to the Logocentrifugal run, and I am grateful to me pal Will for taking the time to share some of his golden hour with me and you.

Johnny has been on the podcast a couple of times before. He's a good dude, a smart businessman and an interesting conversationalist. Enjoy.
November 29, 2021
Logocentrifugal 133 - Doug Williams
Doug was a crusader against an industry that has done more to wrongfully convict more people than perhaps any other misstep in the US legal system ever: The Polygraph Industry. Doug recently died, and so this conversation marks one of his last in public discussing and describing the nefarious and underhanded way the legal system and the polygraph industry have used power and influence to cover up culpability and responsibility for the ruination of thousands of lives. RIP Doug, and thanks for taking the fight to the man. May you be remembered fondly.
November 29, 2021
Logocentrifugal 132 - Troy Casey
A lot of folks think that Troy Casey is a crazy person. They're not wrong. Yet, in a world full of madness, a man who's equally and fully committed to immersing himself in his idiosyncratic madness and supporting/promoting the values he believes in. Call me crazy, but I think we could use more of that kind of lunacy these days. Enjoy the conversation with a brilliant, unique and utterly entertaining man with a good heart and a grand dream.
November 29, 2021
Logocentrifugal 131 - Tex Dom
Tex is a leader of men, an elder and has a firm understanding of relationship dynamics after having been on both ends of the functional/dysfunctional relationship dynamics scale. This was a great conversation which may just help you improve your own relationships.

October 01, 2020
Logocentrifugal 130 - Patriot "Artist Formerly Known As Any Other Name With The Letter J Involved" J
Patriot J is a young man on an ancient mission.   He's working to create art that accurately expresses the creative vision of his soul. That ain't an easy job.   Takes a lot of work to create something worth exploring, because it takes a lot of work to become someone worth investing your own search for resonant art into. In this episode we discuss J's journey into becoming a true artist.   We also discuss censorship, racism, politics and whether it's weird that a young black man first discovered hip-hop through the pop-rap stylings of a young white boy.   All-in-all, this was a great conversation with a lot of points which tie into the current socio-political discourse.   Want more from Patriot J?   Twitter:  Website:

Logocentrifugal 128 - Jayson "The Great Gazoo's Knuckle-Dragging Cousin" the Argonaut
Jayson the Argonaut is a polarizing dude. He's also a dude with a big heart.   In this episode, we talk about social issues ranging from parenting to pedophilia, and from politics to gender dynamics. Through it all Jayson displays his characteristic Devil-may-care attitude over whether or not he should speak his mind.   This was a good conversation, and there was quite a bit of back and forth over the role of men and women in society and in the home especially.    Quite enjoyable, and there's certainly a wealth of wisdom to be mined out of this episode.   Want more from Jayson?   Instagram:  Primal Fire Podcast: (Great guest selection, FYI ((yes, I've been on there)))

Logocentrifgual 127 - Mark "The Nuclear Gardener" Schneider
Mark Schneider is among the leading voices in the world of nuclear energy. He's also a very thoughtful, intelligent and interesting dude. On this fascinating episode, we spoke about the common misconceptions surrounding nuclear energy -dangers surrounding waste, meltdown and weapons proliferation for example- and about emerging technologies which will help facilitate the introduction of nuclear to areas previously devoid of nuclear energy production as well as emphasizing -or re-emphaszing- nuclear energy is areas where cultural fear and the resultant hyper-regulation have stifled the nuclear capacity for decades. In the course of the conversation we also got into some surprising territory filled with subjects like gardening, community design, space and quite a lot more. This was an altogether enjoyable conversation with a good man working towards a future in which all mankind has the energy required to build the life, community and future they are now only able to dream about.

Michael Guimarin is a very smart dude.   He came to poke holes in an article I wrote about what to do with all the entitlement money we pay to the government.   We ended up talking about everything from Lizard People and Smoke Filled Rooms to the underlying foundations of democracy and Genghis Khan.   This was a great conversation, and there is more than enough here to keep you guessing for weeks as you explore the concepts discussed.   Want more from Michael?   Twitter:

Logocentrifugal 123 - The Council of Elders - Chief Chuck Whitworth, Billy Red Horse & Dennis Hynes
The Council of Elders returns, this time with more NAVY!   Chief Chuck, The Gentleman Mystic and Mr. Do Hard Things have all been on the podcast before. In fact, all of them have been on multiple times (although the Chief's second appearance is never to be aired due to another guest on that episode requesting it be removed due to security clearance concerns...), but to have them here together is a real treat.   They're wise and wizened, careful(except the Chief) and caring, and this episode is the digital version of the conversation you have with a mentor when you need a bit of perspective on the world and your place in it.   I even offer an ad hoc parable at the end.   Listen carefully to these excellent men discuss their insight into the world, and take something with you as you adventure through your life.   Want more from The Council of Elders?   Twitter:    Chief Chuck -  Billy Red Horse -  Dennis Hynes -   Websites:    Chief Chuck -  Billy Red Horse -

Joshua Lisec is a ghostwriter.   He's also a successful entrepreneur who has turned his gift for writing into a multifaceted business which has propelled him into the highest echelons of the business and marketing world.   In this conversation, we discuss how he built his empire. There's a lot more in this episode than how to become a successful ghostwriter, at least for those with senses to perceive it.   I also invite Joshua to share a bit of his heart and humanity, and we get to see a bit of the man behind the craft.   This is a great conversation, full of valuable insights, and you would do well to take note and notes.   Buckle up.   Want more from Joshua?   Twitter:  Website:  YouTube:  Best Way to Say It:

Logocentrifugal 122 - Brian "I'm Not An Expert, I Just Play One In Real Life" Roemmele
Brian Roemmele is in contention for the most interesting man on the internet.   That's why I invited him on the podcast. I wanted to discuss his work, his thoughts and philosophy and his propensity for finding fascinating content not found anywhere else.   What I got was three hours of unmitigated fascination.   Brian was ready to rock-n-roll. His heart and mind opened up and delivered such a lucid and thought-provoking monologue that I was little inclined to say anything.   So, I didn't, really.  I just let him say what he needed to say.  The result was one of the most interesting, coherent and salient testimonies I've ever had the good fortune to witness.   Grab a notebook, clear your mind and buckle up. This is a wild ride.   I'll bring Brian back on sometime relatively soon, but in the mean time, find him here:   Twitter:  Website:  Quora:

Logocentrifugal 121 - Dr Edward A "Can't Just Optimize For Sadism" Perin
Dr Ed Perin is a pal of mine, and this is his second appearance.   He's a thoughtful dude, as many in the mental health profession are, and he made his first appearance during the War Series to educate us on the state of mental affairs for veterans and what we might do, as a society, to be able to help our fighting men return to civilian life with a little more grace.   He wanted to come back on to talk about things outside of that specific framework so that he could offer some wisdom that would be more overtly valuable to the everyman.   This conversation was heartfelt, thoughtful, funny and full of wisdom for the everyman. I'd say he met his goal and then some.  I'm pleased you're here, pleased to offer the episode and all out of words except to say...   Let's ride.   Want more from Dr. Ed?   Twitter:

Logocentrifugal 120 - Jack "Overworld Overlord" Posobiec
Jack Posobiec is a remarkable dude.   Imagine having worked for the Chamber of Commerce in China, the Military Intelligence Community in Gitmo, as a grassroots organizer during the election of Donald Trump and as a reporter for One America News.   Then imagine while you were doing all of these things that you grew a million person following on Twitter, got repeatedly retweeted by the President, wrote a couple books, created a comic book, spoke at countless symposiums and conferences on the most important geopolitical issues of our time, created the anti-cargo shorts meme, and appeared on the Logocentrifugal Podcast twice.   Then imagine having done all of that, and a great deal more (including, importantly, building a growing family), by the time you were 35.   Hard to imagine isn't it?   Yet, that's the life that Jack Posobiec has been living, which makes it even more remarkable that the focus of this conversation was mostly around questions of faith and humanity.   Get ready to look past the surface into the depths of a man guided by faith and compassion.   Want more from Jack?   Twitter:  OANN:  Amazon Author's Page:

Logocentrifugal 119 - Kurt "Harvard Graduate Lattes" Schlichter
Kurt Schlichter is a fascinating dude.   He's also got terrible cel-service on his porch.   He's also an author, host, commentator and all around nice guy. This is the second time I've had Kurt on the podcast, and I invited him back this time around ostensibly to talk about his new book The 21 Biggest Lies about Donald Trump (and you!).   Really, we mentioned it a couple times, and then I got Kurt wound up talking about Gramscianism, leftist tomfoolery, future forecasting about creative destruction and a whole lot more.   He's an entertaining man to talk and listen to, and he's got that rare talent that emerges when sharp intellect meets relatable speech, which makes his points salient and relatable.   Get ready for thoughtful analysis, witty quips and glitchy digital artifacts.   Want more from Kurt?   Twitter:   New Book:   Amazon Author Page:   Townhall:

Logocentrifugal 118 - Ed "Working The Genuine Angle" Latimore
Ed Latimore is a lot of things, and most of them are pretty interesting.   Former heavyweight boxer, college graduate, king of crack and black coffee jokes, digital entrepreneur, author... this list could go on for quite some time. He's a modern renaissance man.   But, what Ed primarily is in my eyes - and I think he'd agree with me here - is a teacher.   Sure he lives a remarkable life, but Ed has a particular talent in distilling his uncommon experiences into relatable and digestible content that thousands of people across the world have tapped in to.   In this conversation we discuss some of the differences in Ed's life since the last time we spoke, creating an online presence that's representative of your offline reality, mentality and attitude and quite a bit more.   Ed's a good dude, and this conversation has much to offer, so buckle up and settle in.   Want more from Ed?   Twitter:  Website:  Instagram:

Logocentrifugal 117 - "Bucket of Facts" Longstone
Longstone is an interesting dude.   I wasn't exactly sure where this conversation was going to go, but I had been conversing with him for several months on Twitter, and he seemed like he'd have a good conversation in him.   He's got a business, but he really wasn't interested in promoting that as much as he was interested in talking about the shape of reality and the philosophical underpinnings of that which manifests from the geometrical nature of existence.   It was a thought-provoking conversation, and there's so much to consider and dive into that you'll be left wondering for days afterwards.   Buckle up.   Want more from Longstone?  Twitter:

Logocentrifugal 116 - Garrett "Not That Kind Of Commune" Dailey
Garrett is me pal.   He's stayed at my house and met my family.  He's an actual, real world, friend that I gained from the digital world.   The reason for that is because he's intelligent, thoughtful, interesting and also a good person. This combination has led him down some interesting paths.   In this episode, we discuss some of those paths he's been walking - including intentional community, revolutionary service, business as community and more - and what the takeaways have been for him.   It was an interesting conversation, full of important themes worth exploring, and it was a good time sitting down with me ol' pal Garrett.   Want more from Garrett?   Website:  Twitter:

Logocentrifugal 115 - Jeff "Washing Machine In My Pocket" Putnam
Jeff is me pal. He's a father of nine, a man of personal ethics and sovereignty who offers no apology for his stance, an entrepreneur, an author and one of the most loyal men I know.   He's been through some serious shit.   Being put up for adoption as he was entering adolescence, homelessness, back-breaking labor, the profound challenges of being the father of so large a family, and more, yet Jeff has shouldered them all with alacrity and a defiant spirit.   We discuss some of the ways in which these trials have shaped his worldview.  Jeff drops some profound wisdom at every opportunity, and his no holds barred style of conversation adds a special emphasis to his words.   I'm glad to call Jeff brother, and to be able to offer his thoughts for you - dear audience - to absorb.   Want more from Jeff?   Twitter:  Rugged Legacy Grooming:  Rugged Legacy Podcast:

Logocentrifugal 114 - Mike "The Opinion Bookie" Elias
Mike Elias is doing some very interesting and novel work. His work is focused around his brainchild, Idea Markets, which seeks to develop a currency of credibility based upon the blockchain. Built upon an updated securities exchange platform which seeks to put the measure of trust in the credibility of an information source by introducing capital risk into the game. In this very fascinating episode, Mike and I discuss the ins-and-outs of this concept through contrast and comparison with existing technologies and exchanges. He does an excellent job of explaining several concepts that many folks have had a difficult time in grasping. We carry the conversation forward into potential branches in this technology, including verging into the education realm, and then we delve into some odd and spiritual territory at the end of the conversation. All in all, I very much enjoyed the conversation with Mike, thought that his ideas made a lot of sense and there are many ideas of a complex nature expressed clearly so that you, dear audience, can absorb and enjoy them.

Logocentrifugal 113 - Adam "Pull Yourself Up By Your Kibbutz Straps" Peled
Adam Peled is a brilliant man. He's also my friend. He's also an entrepreneur. He's also a mentor and a family man and more besides. Driven by a desire to serve his fellow man, to solve problems and to promote abundant prosperity the world over, Adam has been creating solutions to problems most of us can't even see until a visionary points them out to us.   In this conversation, Adam and I discuss his upbringing and how it helped set him upon his current course. We go on to explore the principles behind his desire to serve, the specifics of several of the projects he's involved in and some of the ways he balances the many responsibilities that living such a life demands of him.   I've been lucky to have Adam as a friend, and his influence is one that spans continents to lift others to a higher level. I'm very pleased to offer this conversation to you, dear audience, and I hope you'll absorb the wisdom of a very wise man.   Want more from Adam?   Twitter:  Razor Grip:  Skkiper:

Logocentrifugal 112 - Dr. Sean "At War With Self-Licking Ice Cream Cones" McFate
Dr. Sean McFate has a brain on him, and there's no getting around it. He's the kind of smart that causes a lot of problems for itself; his brilliance is attached to an unflinching path of truth telling.s He's getting the word out on the reality that the United States and the rest of the "Western World" are being outmaneuvered, out-innovated and losing ground rapidly on the modern battlefield. While the US and it's ostensible allies continue to develop technological and military capabilities aimed at defeating the kind of enemies that haven't been seen since WWII, our enemies have been developing the powers of information, deception and manipulation to win victories over the lumbering beast of the western Military Industrial Complex at a minuscule fraction of the cost in both manpower and resources. In his new novel, High Treason, McFate lays out in disturbingly plausible detail how just such tactics could play out on a slightly larger scale than perhaps we've yet seen, and how the resources and capabilities of the US are hampered by a dogmatic resistance to accepting the reality that the battlefield is not the one we've been spending decades and trillions of dollars preparing to dominate. As ever, with the good doctor, listening to this episode will deepen the understanding of those who can already see, and for those who don't - and are willing to listen well - it will shatter the old paradigm of strategic and combative thinking to reveal a world in which the truth is hidden, the lies war with each other for supremacy and the populace is manipulated by clever and powerful groups seeking to advance their own particular, and most often devious, agenda. Buckle up, listen well and cling not to thine ignorance. Want more from Dr. Sean McFate? Website: Twitter: Amazon Author Page: Harper Collins Author Page:

Logocentrifugal 111 - AoL5 - Art of Elders - Billy "AccountaBilly" Red Horse & Dennis "Tunacan" Hynes
My "crazy uncles" Billy Red Horse and Dennis Hynes are two men who I greatly respect.   Strong - mentally and physically - wise and both with hearts that call them to serve the world by offering their guidance to those smart enough to listen, these men are shining examples of how a man can mature with his dignity intact.   We had a very powerful conversation on the ways in which the world has changed, and the ways it has remained the same, through their many, MANY, years, and how one might live with honor in any climate.   Accountability, consequences, effort, cultural uproar, shifting paradigms and quite a bit more were discussed as we created this scroll of wisdom.  It was an honor to have these gentlemen on, and their dynamic with each other was a pleasure to watch, yet the real treasures were in the bits of knowledge and thoughtful perspectives that were unceasingly pouring forth from the mouths of these elders.   I am more than pleased to be able to offer this conversation for your education and edification.   Buckle up.   Want more from Billy Red Horse?   Twitter:  Website:  Relevant Article:   Want more from Dennis Hynes?   Twitter:

Jack Murphy is a remarkable man.   A towering beast of a man, with a towering intellect to match, he's been very influential in the conversations surrounding politics and masculinity in recent years.   Part of what gives him his standing is his ability to write lucid accounts of the many trials he's lived through in the last decade or so. He connects principles and current events to stories and language that people can connect with.   As part of The Art of Living series here on the Logocentrifugal Podcast, I had a conversation with Jack about the ways in which he's been able to put his life back together stronger each time following the repeated life-shattering events that have shaped his story.   We talked about connections, mentality, storytelling and a lot more. And it's clear from this conversation why many look to Jack for leadership and connection.   This was a very important conversation, and there's so much to absorb from the thoughts presented. Jack drops a massive amount of wisdom in this podcast, and I'm grateful to be able to share it with you.  Listen well, and think carefully about the things you learn.   Want more from Jack?   Twitter:  Website:  Book:

Logocentrifugal 109 - AoL3: Art of $ - Nate "The Cashflow Pastor" Dean & Caleb "Yung Dvdndz" Gregory
On this episode of The Art of Living series, I spoke with Nate Dean and Caleb Gregory about the ways in which one can put their money to work for them.   We talked about cashflow, and dividends and the mentality behind those who master their relationship with money.  This isn't an episode about budgeting or paying off all of your debt. Those are important concepts, but in this episode of the Logocentrifugal Podcast, we talk about how a person can use their money to create leverage and passive income.   This is not a "get rich quick and easy" type of conversation, but those who can wrap their head around the idea that there are more ways to earn money than trading units of time will discover a level of freedom that most will never know.   Buckle up, listen intently and consider well the concepts put before you in this episode.    Want more from these fine gentlemen?   Nate:   Twitter -  Holy Shift! -  Newsletter -   Caleb:   Twitter -  Books -

Logocentrifugal 108 - The Art of Living 2 - The Art of Style - Tanner "Not just Private School" Guzy
Tanner Guzy is among the most well-know and respected commentators and professionals working in the realm of style, particularly style with a masculine emphasis, and I sat down to talk to him about it.   One of Tanner's main refrains is the idea that "real men don't care what they look like" is a foolish and untrue line that's been damaging the potential of men who buy into it.  We talked about the psychological aspects of style - what it communicates, how it impacts your identity, how it changes the way you feel - and got into how one might begin to understand their relationship to different aspects of clothing.   This was a conversation that got me thinking about things in a way I really hadn't explored before, and I'm grateful to Tanner for taking the time to spell it out for me, and I'm pleased to be able to offer the conversation for your consideration.   Want more from Tanner?   Twitter:  Website:  Book:

Logocentrifugal 107 - The Art of Living 1 - Life As Art - Roman "Mediocrity Is Your Function" McClay
In the inaugural episode of this new series, The Art of Living, I invited on regular guest Roman McClay to discuss living one's life in a manner that expresses one's artistic sensibilities.    Good art comes from the soul, and if one is living a life attuned to the soul, it becomes an artistic expression.    Creating an environment that one can express themselves fully and naturally in, recognizing your function in the world, and following the impulses of your soul wherever they lead you are among the ideas we discussed.   It gets deep, as it always does with Roman, so buckle up and get prepared to do some thinking.   Also, go buy his book, it's remarkable and singular.   Thanks for tuning in.   Want more from Roman?   Twitter: OR   Website:

Logocentrifugal 106 WAR Series 7 - Kurt "Tri-Tips and Sweatpants" Schlichter
Col(R) Kurt Schlichter has a big personality.  I invited him on the podcast because he came highly recommended by several friends in the military and narrative warfare circles. Longtime fans of the podcast understand that I like to knock my guests out of their comfort zone a little bit, and see what comes out when in unpracticed ground. I did not succeed at this with Kurt.  I was outmatched. The man has been doing the talking head thing for a long time, and he was perfectly comfortable steering the conversation to the places he wanted it to go. That was alright with me, it was a good opportunity to learn from someone who has a lot of skill in staying on topic. This conversation was more about a war of political and social messaging - and the consequences thus derived - than it was about on the ground warfare.  That's also alright with me. Students of war understand that politics is merely non-kinetic warfare, and also that politics aims the guns. All that said, this was a good conversation, and you have to admire a man who can stick to his principles while keeping a good sense of humor. We laughed a lot along the way, and if you're not familiar with Kurt, you're gonna get familiar with him in just over 3/4 of an hour.  Want more from Col(R) Kurt Schlichter?

Logocentrifugal 105 WAR Series 6 - King "Exploit The Weak To Destroy The Strong" Atlas
Atlas knows his business, and his business is political power. He works behind the scenes in countries that are best left unnamed to exert shadow power in the places it is most effective. This conversation lays a framework for understanding the way the world works from this perspective. We explore a couple of real world examples, and dive into some hypotheticals, all in the name of illuminating the shadow world of politics and the armed conflict that serves to enact and enforce the decisions of the political decision makers. You're going to learn a lot about the way the world turns in this episode, and it might be frightening for you, but Atlas holds a perspective that is critical to understanding why and how wars are fought.  This conversation also does a nice job of tying together several of the previous episodes into a cohesive framework. Buckle up and get ready for a bumpy ride. Want more from Atlas? Twitter:

Logocentrifugal 104 - WAR Series 5 - Dr. Edward A. "Put some ED in your pencil" Perin
Dr. Ed Perin is a good man.   He helps folks deal with the traumatic psychological remnants of their time spent in extremely taxing situations.   That's a tough job, and it takes a strong and caring mind to withstand it.   Doc is just such an one. His time in the Army may have something to do with that. It was a pleasure to speak with him about the nature of traumatic psychology - especially as it relates to soldiers - some of the causes, and what can be done to help overcome the negatives associated with a rewired brain.   He also does a wonderful job of making sure that the human element is represented, and shifting the conversation to a place where we could leave behind the fetishization of the "blood and death" part of a soldier's experience.   It was a great conversation, with much within for you to learn, and I encourage you to dive in and pay close attention.   Want more form Dr. Edward A.

Logocentrifugal 103 - WAR Series 4 - Jarhead "Not Necessarily Advocating Atrocities" Mike
Mike is a good dude.   In this episode we discuss brotherhood, the frustrations of limitations, the differences in war now versus Desert Storm and how those differences have are shaping the changes our armed forces are undergoing, the evilness of lobbyists, and quite a bit more.   We also discuss the life of Mike, the marine and the man, and how his time in the Marines has shaped his life and his outlook.    It was important to me that this series not focus merely on strategy and tactics, not only on politics and analysis, but on the human side of things - who are the ones actually serving in the Military, and why, and how does it effect them? - and this episode is rich in the human element.   So, press the button, listen well, and mine the rich deposit of humanity to be found within.   Want more from Jarhead Mike?   Twitter:

Logocentrifugal 102 - WAR Series 3 - John "Camouflage By Spray Paint" Dailey
John Dailey is a solid man.  He's also the father of Logocentrifugal Podcast alumni, Garrett "Ginger Hitler" Dailey, who also happens to be a good pal of mine. In this podcast, we discuss how the whole paradigm of the US Military changed after the events of 9-11, and how John's mentality changed along with it.  We get into the psychological effects that can result from armed conflict - not all of them are negative, by the way - and how a life of service in the military translates into a life of service in the civilian world. John is a thoughtful and contemplative man, you can tell, and he has a very nuanced perspective on many of the political and societal issues surrounding the subject of war. I really enjoyed this conversation, both as a podcast host and on a personal level, and I suggest you listen well that you might glean a a great deal of wisdom from the words of John Dailey.

Logocentrifugal 101 - War Series 2 - Sean "Raging Out Until They're Aging Out" McFate
Dr. Sean McFate is a one-man revolution in the world of military strategy.   You might already know that, whether from his first appearance on this podcast, or from his vast body of work elsewhere, including his brilliant and accessible book The New Rules of War.   Any way you slice it, he's an endless resource of thoughtful analysis, educated takes, and controversial opinions on all things war... which is exactly why I brought him back on the podcast.   In this second episode in the series, Dr. McFate teaches us some novel ways of looking at conflict - who, how, why and so forth - that puts much of the news and rhetoric into perspective.    We also dive into some specific real-world situations, as well as some not-unlikely hypotheticals, to apply these thinking skills in concrete ways.    By the time you're finished with this episode, the world will likely look different than it did before, and you'll be ready to move into some of the more personal stories to come with eyes a bit more wide.    Want more from Dr. McFate?   Website:  Twitter:  Amazon Author Page:

Logocentrifugal 100 - WAR Series 1 - Scott "Handsome Is In My Skill-Stack" Adams
Scott Adams is a smart man. Importantly, he's used those smarts to elevate himself into a diverse collection of powerful platforms. Whether from classrooms to boardrooms, cartoons to capital, investments to influence, politics to periscope and beyond, Scott has found ways to elevate himself to the highest levels. In this inaugural episode of the Logocentrifugal Podcast WAR Series, I asked Mr. Adams to explain some of the tools he uses to avoid what he calls Loserthink (he explains these tools in depth within the pages of the book by the same name), and to apply his skill in using those tools to take a look at the world of war and conflict. He did not disappoint. Though this isn't the first episode I've recorded for the WAR Series, I've chosen to release it first so that you, dear audience member, can absorb the lessons he offers and apply them to the forthcoming episodes. In this way, I hope to be able to increase your ability to apply your own critical eye and enhance your capacity to think in an independent manner about the different perspectives you'll be exposed to in the coming months. I want you to think for yourself, and to be able to do that well. Scott Adams has the same desire, and has made it one of his central efforts. That's why I was grateful to him for coming on to help me help you do that. Listen carefully, take notes and enjoy the ride. Want more from Scott? Twitter: Blog: Dilbert: Loserthink:

Logocentrifugal 99 - Mike "Bolen A 300" Bolen
Mike Bolen has his shit together.   This was a shorter episode, but if you're keeping track of valuable insights, then you wouldn't know it.    Mike is a leader in the realm of real estate, having been in the industry for more than 20 years, and has turned himself into a multimillionaire in the process.   A man like that is worth asking some questions of, and as I did so, he revealed that he's a man of systems and mastery. I can identify with that a great deal.   We talked about the power of a strong network, tools to ensure that you're attracting the best candidates for inclusion into your network, and several strategies and practices that will allow one the ability to create a powerful mindset, lucrative endeavors and a method to the mastery.   All in all it was an excellent conversation, full of valuable information, and I hope you'll listen carefully.   Want more from Mike Bolen?   Twitter:  Website:  Instagram:

Logocentrifugal 98 - Dr. Robert "Quoth the Raven, Not Moth to the Flame" Toth
Dr. Robert Toth sees things.  Not dead people, probably, but answers to questions most people don't know how to ask.  But he answers them anyway, and new worlds of function open up along this journey into distillation that he's on.  In our conversation, we talked a lot about how one might use processes and problem-solving tools to refine the most relevant information into the most useful groupings.   There's a lot going on here, you might say.   This was a conversation that will, as you reach the end of it, have given you a lot of things to think about, and not all of them overt.  Dr. Toth is a strategic thinker, and listening to him speak about the future reveals the depth of his faith in himself to influence it. Yet there's a humbleness born of being very realistic about his place in the scheme of things, too.   This balance makes for a wise vantage with the potential to steer events significantly.   Is Dr. Toth the wise owl sharing wisdom from the canopy, or is he the Tootsie-Pop owl, eating the candy of those who ask stupid questions?   When you're ready to find out, we'll see you on the inside.   Thanks for tuning in.   Want more from Dr. Robert Toth?   Twitter:  Website: Ki Book Club: -

Logocentrifugal 97 - Robin "Go BINK! Your Comfort Zone" Black
Robin Black is a fascinating dude. This conversation was very much the Robin show, and that suits me very well. I love this kind of "put a quarter in a sit back" kind of guest because I get to sit back and enjoy the experience. Though he's best known for his martial arts video breakdowns and commentary, the man has developed a profound worldview built upon his study of martial prowess.  Just as a thrown fist or shin is subject to the rules of physics and chemistry, and just as the mind which threw them is subject to the rules of psychology and evolutionary impulses, so too has Robin's study taken him down these roads. In what is simultaneously a wide ranging and circular conversation, we talk about such disparate subjects as the nature of reality and knowledge, confidence and humility, the limitations of understanding imposed by language and a lot more besides. This conversation is a veritable smorgasbord of wisdom and insight which will challenge you to think about things a bit differently. I think you'll find a great amount of value to be harvested from this conversational field. Buckle up and get ready for a breakneck ride through the mind of Robin Black. Want more from Robin?

Logocentrifugal 96 - Elliott "Demons At The Door" Hulse
Elliott Hulse is a powerful man. This is true in more than just his juggernaut physicality, though that is certainly an impressive feature of the man, but it also true in the measure thoughtful mind and soulful desire to lift those he works with up several levels in the game of paradigmatic ascension. "I'm a strength coach," went the refrain several times throughout the conversation. Sure, that's true, but usually when people say that they are not also the head of a movement involving millions of people. Elliott is. The strength he teaches is based on his philosophy that there is more to a person than the meat and bones of their body; a person is a mind, a body, an emotional being and a spirit.  While the path to a balanced strength in all four quadrants started for Elliott and the men - yes men, he focuses his work on men because of his view that the world is doing its damndest to destroy men and bring them down from their Divinely appointed roles leaders and kings - he works with in the realm of the body, it does not stop there. In fact, as Elliott was humble and courageous enough to expound upon in our conversation, it continues on is a never-ending process of introspection, reflection, prayer and service. I really enjoyed this conversation, and I think it's an important one to have had given the current cultural climate, and I'm grateful to Elliott for taking the time to sit down with me and talk about men, and God and our place in this increasingly hostile and broken culture. Also, listen closely and see if you can spot the point at which his heart opened up and we really started to connect. You may not agree with everything that is said in this podcast, but I challenge you to listen carefully and measure your own thoughts agains those of Elliott Hulse and ask yourself where you stand.

Logocentrifugal 95 - Dr. Sean "We follow my rules, or we seal our McFate" McFate
Dr. Sean McFate is a very unusual man. An early childhood passion for playing violin and an Ivy League education are uncommon enough. But, from a military career to a dalliance with the non-profit world and from the high-adventure and dark visions of the mercenary life to the stuffy offices and feuding intellectual power-point powerhouses of the think-tank circuit, Sean McFate carved a very unique path through the world of geopolitics and armed conflict.  Bringing that eclectic experience and unique world-view to bear, Dr. McFate is now a university professor and author attempting to tear down the pillars supporting the halls of past valor to prepare the modern warrior - and those who make the decisions which determine when and with whom they will go to war - to successfully overcome the challenges before them. We talked a bit of Sean's history, dissected some of the reasoning behind and extrapolations of The New Rules of War - which he proposes in his book by the same name - and lay out an overview of what a military prioritized and optimized to fight in the current and future paradigms of war. It was a fascinating conversation with a brilliant and controversial mind inside an uncommon and unflinching man. I learned a lot from the conversation, and from his book, and I highly recommend both of them to you, dear listener. I doubt this will be the last you hear from McFate on this podcast, but in the meantime... Want more from Dr. Sean McFate? Twitter: Website:

Logocentrifugal 94 - Dr. Shawn "Objectively Better By Every Measure" Baker
Dr. Shawn Baker has a lot going on for him. A savage beast of a man, breaking records in athletic events like power-lifting and rowing, while speaking with force in the world of nutrition as one of the strongest voices in favor of a diet based primarily - or even, and often solely - in meat.  Needless to say, he's a polarizing character. Polarizing, but not wantonly. He lives as an example of the lifestyle he's advocating for, and he's a very thoughtful and articulate speaker. We had a conversation that ranged from his own experiences with carnivory to the effects he's seen in others, from a very granular view into how the medical profession is failing to serve us as well as it could to a bird's-eye look into some of the possible motivations and causes behind it and from how a person might look out at the world and make more accurate assessments to how they might look within to do the same. We also talk about his upcoming book, The Carnivore Diet. All in all, it was an informative, interesting and powerful conversation which will help you to build a more informed platform to build your health upon. Want more from Dr. Baker? Twitter: Website:

Logocentrifugal 93 - Andrew "Steven Motherf*cking Seagal" Tate
Andrew Tate is a fascinating character. He's a natural showman, yet he's wrapped up inside the mind and body of a lifelong fighter. This conversation needed little in the way of a host, Andrew was ready to talk with just a hint prodding along any direction. He also shaped the conversation to travel the roads he wanted to drive along. In a conversational podcast like mine, this is something I encourage in my guests, because I want them to tell their story and pick their brains for useful bit of wisdom or to highlight certain parts of their mentality in a way that leaves the listener able to form their own judgments. Andrew needs no encouragement in this department. Part of that is because he has a message that he's committed to, and part of that is because he's prepared to accept the consequences of his words - whatever they may be - both of which are rare traits. This is the source of my respect for Andrew Tate. There are many things I disagree with him on, and there are a couple of things in which Andrew engages which I strongly disagree with on a moral basis. That being said, my moral compass is not his, and from what I can tell, he's a man who operates according to principles and he sticks to them with uncommon tenacity. He's a polarizing character in that way. I'll let you decide what you think about Andrew Tate, and I'm sure you'll think some thoughts about the man after listening, but I'll tell you this as a final thought: Andrew has told me he would do something on several occasions, and he's done so each time. I've had several conversations surrounding the man, and of those who have had direct interactions with him, they all say the same thing - he follows through, and is loyal in his relationships. Thanks for tuning in. Want more from Andrew Tate? Website: Instagram: Twitter:

Logocentrifugal 92 - Jon "Lying is what they were designed to du" du Toit
Jon du Toit is an fascinating character. His work on the film Hoaxed: Everything They Told You Is A Lie is what sparked my initial interest in the man. It was an incredibly well crafted film and revealed more than most are prepared to accept about how the world of narrative and media is put together. In this conversation we discuss a bit about how Jon got to be where he's at, running through a brief sketch of his personal history, before touching upon some of his beliefs and personal experiences that shape the way in which he interfaces with the world and which allow him to see the world through his particularly clear lens. Whether it's being raised as an immigrant in a foreign land, or holding beliefs and a worldview that caused him to be a pariah in his chosen field, Jon has had the distinctly uncomfortable but undeniably powerful title of outsider for most of his life. This has allowed him to see things that would be otherwise difficult nigh unto impossible to see were he as deeply enmeshed in the various cultures to which he has been exposed to across his life. This was a great conversation, and likely the first of several, and it was an honor to have Jon on the podcast as I return from my hiatus to focus in on providing what I consider to be the most interesting and relevant perspectives on the shifting foundations of society at large during a time of great political and cultural upheaval.  Listen in, pay attention, and you won't be disappointed.

Logocentrifugal 91 - Nicholas "The North Pole is the entrance to the Rabbit Hole" Hinton
Nick Hinton was recommended to me by a previous guest on the podcast, Justin C. Scott, and I was interested immediately, because of his interesting work on conspiracies and interesting quirks in the fabric of reality and perception.  This conversation was a very interesting one, and we covered many fascinating pieces of the mysteries surrounding reality. From the nature of God and Man to the perceptions - or misperceptions - surrounding the concept of time, and from the role of light and dark to the interconnectedness of all things, we ran the gamut of esoteric musing.  There's a lot to consider in this episode, and of course, as is ever the case when discussing such matters, there's plenty of room left for you to make up your own mind about these concepts.  Nicholas was an great guest, and he has a fascinating view on the nature of our existence.  Want more from Nick?

Logocentrifugal 90 - Johnny "This body oil contains the essence of my soul" Noble
Johnny Noble makes his second appearance on the podcast, and it was quite a conversation. The first thing I saw when Johnny turned on his video was a large television behind him showing a picture of some fiery galaxy. I busted up laughing. The conversation proceeded from there exactly as you might expect. We talked about the essence of being, the universe, the nature of reality, how to manifest your will into existence and - hard as this might be to believe - a lot more. It's fun to have repeat guests on the podcast, because we've already established a relationship, so the comfort level is much higher than the first appearance. This was no different, and while we did spend a small amount of time talking about Johnny's business endeavors - and there are some very important points made about that - we spent most the conversation plumbing the depths of reality looking for hidden pearls. I enjoyed the conversation very much, and I'll be sure to have Johnny back on, but for now enjoy the conversation and ponder the concepts presented. Want more from Johnny?

Logocentrifugal 89 - Beth "Can't see yourself if you only watch the circus" Martens
Beth Martens is a woman I was introduced to through one of her students who also happens to be a friend of mine. After learning what she does to aid people in their journey of self-knowledge directed at both personal and professional development, I was curious to learn more. So, I invited her on the podcast, and what ensued was a very valuable conversation relating the to path of understanding your purpose and how one might reveal more of it in a practical manner. This conversation went deep into areas of Jungian psychology - archetypal patterns and thoughts about the shadow - and there were many personal stories and paths of consideration presented. There's a lot within the episode itself, and there is much to explore based upon the hints offered within the episode as well.  It was a pleasure to talk with Beth, and I know many of you will benefit deeply from the listen. It's well worth considering what you're meant to be by understanding how you're wired to see and think, and which mechanisms of action align most harmoniously with those patterns.

Logocentrifugal 88 - Az "All I know about life I learned from 1980's issues of Vogue Magazine" Samad
Az Samad is a fascinating character. Son of one of Malaysia's artist laureates and a journalist, he was brought up in a home that would be atypical anywhere, but especially in a culture which values a "sensible" career path typically embodied in engineering and the sciences. As was instead encouraged to pursue a life of artistic expression and going with the flow of his fascination. After picking up a guitar around the age of 16, he quickly stepped onto a path that would lead him all around the world, learning and playing music across continents and cultures. His heart and soul shine through in a big way in this episode, and it was a great pleasure to have this conversation with the man. We talked about his upbringing and education, his perspective on artistic creation, the values that have shaped his outlook and the unique blend of cultural and educational elements that have shaped his musical stylings. He also played a bit of music on his guitar, and that's a unique spin on the episode. All in all, what was revealed during the course of this episode was a highly intelligent, life-loving and thoughtful man sharing of his essence and the lesson learned after more than 20 years pursuing his passions.

Logocentrifugal 87 - Craig "It's freedom of speech, not freedom of screech" James
Craig James is a man I encountered because of his connection to a great deal of young men I'm friendly with who have been influenced by his leadership and mentorship. He's also the partner in crime to me pal Hunter Drew, who was a previous guest on this podcast. Craig's message, on the surface at least, is a simple one. Make room for men to be men in the modern world, and instill in those men the critical lessons of personal responsibility and service to the family and community. That's a message that is increasingly vilified in the modern narrative landscape, and we talk about some of the reasons why. We then transition into discussing what a young man, or a man at any age, might do to become something more than they are and to claim their birthright as a strong man and leader of a family.  The conversation ranges from societal issues, to personal development and much in between. This conversation has no shortage of gems, and it will be beneficial to any man seeking guidance. It will also be useful for women to gain a better understanding of men and their motivations and outlook. Want more from Craig?

Logocentrifugal 86 - Kunal "The new culture is no culture" Dharamsi
Kunal is a friend of mine. We worked together to create some tools and systems that would enable him to make progress on a number of fronts, both personal and professional, and through that process I came to respect the man. Kunal lives in India, and my relative unfamiliarity with the modern iteration of this ancient land took up much of the conversation. I knew I could count on him to have a wealth of knowledge - he's a highly intelligent young man - and so I let my fascination with the evolution of the Indian way of life drive the train. Kunal did not disappoint, and I learned a lot about the ways in which the globalization and modernization trends occurring across the world have made their effects felt in India. There's a lot to be glad for, and much to lament the loss of, but the future will tell how it all plays out. We also talked about Kunal's own life, his atypical upbringing, and how these things shaped him into the kind of man who was compelled to jump from an uncomfortably comfortable career to make his own way within the realm of digital business. All in all, it was a great conversation full of topics and perspectives that most of you will be unfamiliar with. Want more from Kunal?

Logocentrifugal 85 - Tiger "The artist formerly known as Weed & Counterstrike" Joseph
Tiger was a pleasure to talk to. It's refreshing and heartening to me when I get the opportunity to speak with a young adult with their shit together. Tiger has made certain realizations by 19 that it took me until my late 20's to figure out, and he's no need for the decade+ of recuperative work I had to put in to rebuild my life from the ravages of the dark world. He's a burgeoning filmmaker, and a burgeoning human as well. We talk best practices, principles, how mistakes and accidents can be our best teachers and a lot more. This episode will be of particular interest to younger members of the audience looking for a role-model in their peer group, but there's also plenty here for older listeners as well. We discuss foundational principles that you might have missed along the way, and then there's always the sentiment of appreciated a well-adjusted youth which you're likely to share with me. Tiger was a recommendation, and he didn't disappoint.  Want more from Tiger? Twitter  LinkTree (Lots of Links) TYGR Productions

Logocentrifugal 84 - John "I remind you that you're free, and so I'm forced to flee" McAfee
John McAfee is a man who need no introduction. Even so, I'll give a brief one: Computers, Money, Advocating Freedom, Running for President, Government Targeting, Traveling the World (Fleeing Persecution), Social Media Messenger John has been advocating for personal sovereignty, an end to wars of aggression, ceasing the financial fuckery of centralized fiat currencies and the banks that control them, deconstructing the failed institutions of government and enjoying your life for many years now.  This is a message that has cost him no small amount of money, time, conflict, stress and more. It's made all the more remarkable because he could have just sat back on the beach with more money than he knew what to do with, and enjoyed the twilight of his life with the love of his life, Mrs. Janice McAfee, sipping drinks and tripping balls.

Because he was not some fringe hippie with no means or connections, the powers that be saw an actual threat in the man, and have to this very day run a campaign to bring McAfee down. When a plantation owner with no slaves, but plenty of resources, announces to the unwitting slaves of the other plantation owners that they are slaves and don't need to be, is it any wonder they turn their eyes, along with their proclivity for lynching, to the man with the bullhorn?

Logocentrifugal 82 - Joe "The Kubrick of Jersey Shore" Vrola
Joe Vrola has been on the podcast before, and I invited him back to talk about his film Buzzkill New Jersey, because it's almost out and I think that's pretty badass. The last three years of Joe's life have been spent obsessing over every detail of the making of this film. Writer, director, editor, lead actor, etc... Joe basically did everything on this movie but run the camera, and that's quite a feat. I know many of you out there have had daydreams about creating a film, and we get into some of the nitty-gritty behind the process, and you'll get a feel for how much work actually goes in to making a film that isn't a piece of shit. Joe's a good dude, and he's sacrificed in immeasurable way to bring his vision into reality, which is something that I respect. This is a valuable episode for those in the artistic professions, or seeking to move in that direction, because it will teach you the reality that there's no place for slackers anywhere, including in the arts. Support Joe, he's created this film independently, and it a remarkable feat. If we don't support independent artists, then all we'll ever have is remakes of the same 15 movies that the major studios foist upon the unwashed masses in a constant recycling of simple stories for simple minds.

Logocentrifgual 81 - Dev "A deep crystal brightly, or some such nonsense"
Dev is an interesting gal. She was recommended for the podcast, and had a lot of interesting perspectives and useful insights. We talked about things like relationships with mentors, waking up to responsibility, relationships with God and your roots, how to identify when it's time to cut threads on poisonous relationships, and a lot more. We got into some of Dev's own past, and pulled out concepts and tools that she used to climb out of pain and self-pity into the light of responsibility and taking life by the horns.  At 23, Dev is quite a bit younger than most of the guests, and as the conversation unfurled, I found myself appreciating two things about that: 1) Dev seems to have some important and, in my estimation, critical concepts figured out at a relatively young age, and 2) That the seeds of an idea take years to mature. At 33, I recognize the seedlings of ideas that I have nurtured into mature fruit trees in the ideas and pursuits of a person a decade my junior. It is revealing to me in a way that I am beginning to understand in a deeper manner; elders really do understand, and care, and come from a place of caring when they impart wisdom and encourage learning. I was grateful for the conversation with Dev, as I ever am with all my guest, and I feel that there is a lot to pick up on in this conversation, and a promising future being explored for the world to see.

Logocentrifgual 80 - Justin "Everything to gain, and nothing Deleuze" Murphy
Justin Murphy was an interesting feller to talk with.  He's a sharp-minded dude, and has clearly spent quite a lot of time thinking about his place in the world, and what this life means to him. I came across Justin awhile back, because of me pal Jason Snyder, and I found his content to be quite thoughtful and lucid.  I invited Justing on the podcast because he's been requested more than once, and I thought he'd make a very interesting guest. He did not disappoint. Our conversation ranged from intellectual integrity to Catholicism, and from thoughts on the nature of existence to perspectives on the power inherent in rigorous adherence to honesty, and all along the path, Justin had either an answer prepared or was prepared, at least, to answer. One of the standout features of Mr. Murphy's character, in my eyes at least, is the obvious curiosity driving his attention. He seems to have targeted but bottomless fount of fascination, and this is a characteristic I can identify with. This episode presents no shortage of challenging concepts and ideas to explore and contend with, and I think it will deliver an entertaining and thought-provoking listening experience.

Logocentrifugal 79 - Phillip "Am I still laconic after 90 minutes of talking?" Eubanks
Phillip Eubanks is a genuine and decent human. He's been one of the most ardent supporters of this podcast, and of my work in general, and I was curious to see what makes the man tick. So, I invited him on the podcast to get a better understanding of who Phil is, and what his mission is. I'm very glad I did.  Many of my guests are already established as notable personalities in their respective realms. Phil is a bit different in this regard. He's been a more behind-the-scenes kind of guy until very recently, but he felt compelled to step out from behind the curtains and take his place on the world stage. Between developing connections and relationships with several high-impact people on twitter, continuing to develop his professional skills and creating the Laconic Brand of men's accessories, Phil is at a crossroads in his digital life that will be illuminating and informative for many interested in taking similar steps. Phil has a deep-seated faith that directs and informs his journey, and he speaks of it in similar terms to ones I've often used to discuss that tell-tale sensation that accompanies the tap on the shoulder delivered by your destiny. As has so often recently been the case, we get into matters of creation and creator, and dive into the topics of faith, ascension and signposts of divine purpose. I really enjoyed getting to know me pal Phil a little better, and I found a very engaged, intelligent and thoughtful man behind the Laconic brand, and I think you'll find Phil a worthwhile man to connect with.

Logocentrifugal 78 - Justin C. "Synergetic Eyebrows and Hypnotic Hand Jive" Scott
Justin C. Scott has been a pal since shortly after I joined Twitter. He's also one of the few people I recorded and impression of, and it has been one of the most popular I've done. Justin is an easy dude to befriend. He's relentlessly positive, and constantly offering up insights into how to shift the flows of energy of the layers beneath the surface. There's a very cathartic energy that comes from Justin's videos and thoughts, and it's a gift that is rare at any age but especially for a man in his twenties. Some people seem to be fountains of wisdom from birth, and Justin is one such. It was a pleasure to have a conversation with him, and we dive into a rich conversation that travels the roads of the subconscious, the spirit, the creative aspects of our nature while we synthesize what we can into concepts and practices that can enhance your connection and capacity to engage with the underlying energetic flows of existence in a more harmonious manner. We get pretty far out there in this conversation, but there is an uncommon tendency for each of us to attempt to distill something concrete out of even the most ethereal and uncertain realms of thought, as we adventure through this metaphysical call and response. There's a whole world of thoughts to explore based upon this conversation, and I doubt that there is anyone who would not be better for having done so. Let us blow your mind out into deep space, and then try to guide you back. Want more from Justin C. Scott? Twitter Blog Further Resources

Logocentrifugal 77 - Matt S. "President: Tool Fans for World Peace" Stephens
Matt Stephens is a strong man.  Not just in the physical sense, but in his bearing, in his very demeanor. His passion for life is evident in nearly every sentence he uttered during our conversation. There were several times where it seemed as though he had to consciously keep himself from bursting out of his seat and bellowing out the message.  One of the reasons I reached out to Matt to bring him on the podcast is the transformation story that is central to the narrative he presents to the world. Where once stood an out of shape, and unhealthy man now stands a man who is lean and yoked up like an ox. The startling metamorphosis did not just occur in the physical realm, but in his mentality. We dive in to the mental aspect of becoming more tomorrow than you are today, and deliver a lot of thoughts and ideas that will be beneficial for you to content with. We also wade into the waters of the spirit, and converse a bit on the nature of reality and the manner in which we interface with it, and what that interface might mean about the source and the direction of existence.  We also talk about how badass the band Tool is, and how we both listen to them while doing squats. Then I do a pretty lame job of trying to make the divergence a relevant thread in the larger tapestry of the conversation. All in all, this was a great conversation, and Matt showed that his intellect is swole as his physique. Want more from Matt S. Stephens? Twitter Website Instagram

Shadeed Eleazer is a thoughtful and intelligent dude. I ran into him in the potential maximizing realm of twitter, and I've always appreciated his useful and positive content. He's delivering value, and avoiding most of the beef that can be part and parcel to competitive types. In our conversation, we talked about mentality, environmental factors on outcomes, visualization, strategic thinking and a whole slew of other topics pertaining to business and success in life generally. There are visions of the future, strategic frameworks for building a vision, methods of finding and refining your vision and a great deal more ideas and tools for you to absorb in this episode. Shadeed was easy to talk to, was prepared to expand thoughtfully on any questions I asked, and was sharp and responsive in his communication style. I think everybody who listens to this episode will find much to consider. Want more from Shadeed Eleazer? Twitter Ruthless Time Analysis Journal Website

Logocentrifugal 75 - Niels "The Nose-Gasm Guru"
Niels is a smart fella. I ran into him on Twitter, and after about two-dozen insults back and forth (which I clearly delivered with more skill and better content), we became pals. Though his emphasis is something quite different than mine, his skill in persuasion and narrative analysis combined with his use of uncommon mental tools to elicit growth in his clients are things I can appreciate. So, I brought Niels on the podcast to take a look at some of the underlying factors that allow things like hypnosis and other psychological tools to be so effective under the right circumstances. We get into psychosomatic effects, body language in context, benevolent mentalism, and a lot more. There are certainly a long string of interesting and thought-provoking ideas explored in this episode. You'll not regret the interesting perspective that Niels brings to the table, and as en erotic hypnotist, his angle is one that is quite uncommon. We don't get explicit in that regard, but the principles in this episode might well assist your own ability to treat sexuality in a healthy light.  Want more from Niels? Twitter Email List Website

Logocentrifugal 73 - Adam "One day we'll all be techno-wizards" Kokesh
Adam Kokesh is a man on a mission. A while back, I put out a call to my audience for interesting guests I might bring on the podcast. Adam was one of the first names dropped, and was quickly seconded. He was ready to make that happen, so we got the ball rolling, and I'm very glad we did. The dude has passion flooding out of him, and it's all about dismantling the onerous federal government in a methodical and systematic way, then returning the function of government back to the states, and removing the compulsory participation in any government whether federal, state, county or city.  Many of you know I'm a radical personal-sovereignty advocate, and this is a message I can get behind. It was a pleasure to sit down and have a conversation with a man who's making a serious attempt to win the presidency so that he can abolish the position immediately after signing the necessary executive orders to abolish the federal government. In the conversation, we touch on his motivations for this mission, a brief rundown of how it would work, why he thinks it's possible to make this work, and quite a lot more. There's no end of concepts and principles in this episode, and it will lead you to consider things in a new light if you're not already of the Libertarian bent, and even if you are, the actual prescription for accomplishing the goal is much more lucid and rational than the narrative of thoughtless abolishment of the government in favor of instant anarchy. It was a great conversation, which went well beyond the hour which Adam was originally prepared share. He was very easy to talk to, charismatic and relatable, and there's an obvious and open depth to the man that is truly refreshing in a man running a campaign to become President of the United States, even if for only a day.

Logocentrifugal 72 - Praetorian "Jesus still loves you, but what the f***" Swift
Praetorian Swift is a good dude, but he's a bad man. Badass that is. He's spent the last couple of decades learning and teaching the skills necessary to ensure that soldiers, law enforcement and the Average Joe are able to defend themselves and those whose protection has been placed in their hands.  I stumbled across Swift in the same way I usually find my guests; I found the man on twitter due to his association with several of the other people I have befriended. He can highly recommended by several people I respect, and I'd already appreciated his sharp edged wisdom delivered with simplicity and a sense of humor. Once, he suggested he would remove my eyeballs with a spoon. So I brought him on the podcast to talk about his worldview, the weak points in society and in individuals and what he thinks can and ought to be done about them. We ranged from Jesus to stun-guns, from pepper-spraying Ivan Throne to justifiable homicide and from building a strong marriage to building strong defenses in this insightful conversation. There's plenty to contend with in this episode, and everyone is sure to find something to disagree with Swift over, but that's where the learning is done, and he'd be more than happy to help you learn...with a Swift punch to the head if needed.

Logocentrifugal 71 - Jonathan "If you think that's magic, you should see my" Pritchard
Jonathan Pritchard is a man who lives a very uncommon life. He's made his way through the world as a mentalist, juggler and magician of sorts, creating a path for himself that veers well off of the beaten path.  Along the way, he realized that the skills he had developed to engage an audience and to lead them into a perception of the world that was different than the one they walked into his room with could be used to create a lasting and beneficial difference in their lives. So, he set about doing just that. Motivational Mentalist might seem like an odd career path, but nevertheless, the man has chosen it and built it into what can only be described as a unique legacy. We talked about physical reality and it's relationship with imagination, mental tools and frames to help catalyze change in your life, his fascinating history and quite a bit more.  There's something for everyone in here, and don't let the idea of "woo-woo" so often attached to a man in Jonathan's industry scare you off, he's got a very grounded perspective and makes sure to tie his ideas into the real-world in a very clear and understandable way.

Logocentrifugal 70 - Steel "Backpacking travelers are the worst people" Janz
Steel Janz is a feller I met on Twitter because of his association with a couple of the blue-collar geniuses I have befriended, previous and future guest Roman McClay among them, and it's been a great connection. It was a long conversation, and I may or may not have had two high-test beers during the course of the conversation, so we were able to range across a wide variety of concepts and contexts in a manner similar to the nomadic lifestyle Janz holds dear.  From parenting to principles, from loyalty to lethargy and from growing roots to seeds on the wind, we covered the gamut. Janz is a very relatable dude and, though he speaks with common language, he delivers uncommon wisdom. A world traveller, and a man who holds respect as a critical principle, Janz has much to offer. It was great getting to know the man behind the pseudonym, and I'm happy to be able to share this conversation with you.  Want more from Steel Janz? Twitter Barbarian Rhetoric

David Reaboi came highly recommended by several people I respect, and after our conversation, it's not hard to understand why. National security, information warfare, cultural analysis are subjects for which David has an academic level of understanding, and that knowledge is supported and expanded by his on-the-ground experiences working in these realms, and his network of similarly credentialed and experienced connections. We sat down for a conversation that, though comparatively short, couldn't have been more dense in relevant and poignant information. The conversation ranged from his family history and years in college to 9/11 and his emergence into the realm of national security. We talked history through the lens of cultural movements and took a very real and, to be perfectly frank, rather daunting look at how the Gramscian "long march through the institutions" and the impact that those emerging from the Frankfurt School has infiltrated Western Society and  chipped away at its foundations for decades.  We also talked about American style war tactics, possible near-future outcomes and how an individual might become more attuned to the world around them from a geopolitical perspective. This isn't a podcast to listen to if you're hoping emerge from it with a warm and fuzzy feeling, but sometimes recognizing reality means recognizing dire situations and planning accordingly.

Jean-Jacques (JJ) is one of my first pals from Twitter. He also used to have a beard. He's one of the few guests I've had on who had a specific agenda to his appearance, and since it was right up my ally, I was all for it.  The value of being weird is something that I have a lot of experience in, and it was a very thoughtful conversation surrounding the subject. We got into a light sprinkling of Jungian thinking on the matter, related some personal anecdotes, discussed ways in which a weirdo can be of benefit to a society and the pitfalls a weirdo can present both to themselves and the world around them. There was an easy flow to this conversation, and it has a lot to do with JJ's good-humored demeanor. He's similar to me in that almost everything is amusing, and that amusement elicits some sort of snort, chuckle or laugh. We had a great time while doing a fairly intellectual dive into the subject out outsiders and outliers. I think this conversation has some very important perspectives to consider, and that it will help to illuminate the human spirit in a way that many may not have considered before, which apropos of the conversation in a very meta way, is what a couple of weirdos are good for.

Logocentrifugal 67 - Uncle "They haven't done anything to their downstairs...yet" Hotep
Uncle Hotep has an infectious laugh, and it's one of his trademarks.  I was glad to share in the laughter as we sat down to talk about all things culture. Whether we were discussing the narrative tactics of black feminists, why Talib Kweli is an asshole, the art of genuine listening or The Avengers, that laugh and the good-natured man behind it made this conversation very enjoyable. Uncle Hotep has a decade or so on me, and his perspective on the changes and influences that have flooded the media landscape in the last 15 years or so is informed by having lived in a world where the internet and the SJW influence on the conversation were not present at all. It was interesting to hear his take on some of these topics, and I appreciated that even though he could imagine a time where things fall apart due to the divisive tactics so common in todays social and political discourse, he could even treat doomsday with a hearty gut laugh. If you'd like to enjoy a conversation with a man who's been steadily growing a large audience and developing his influence largely through his good humor and his genuine friendships, then you've come to the right place. There's a lot to be gained from this conversation, and I'm grateful to Unc for taking the time to have it. Want more from Uncle Hotep? Twitter Hoteps Been Told You YouTube Website

Dylan is an interesting case. Young and ambitious, but not so much in a materialistic way so much as in a developmental way. He seeks to become the man who can embody the values he is revealing through faith in acting on his instincts. He's doing a damn good job of it if you ask me, and his network of business and personal relationships seems to verify this claim. We've been meaning to get together to do a podcast for some time now, but our schedules hadn't worked out, but then I had a podcast guest who needed to reschedule, and Dylan popped into my Twitter timeline to fill the vacancy. I'm glad he did, because we had a great conversation that centered on his path to living a very interesting and energetic life, faith in oneself and in God, networking, mentality and more. This episode will have much to offer for any listener, but particularly for ambitious young men looking for guidance in how to assemble a life worth living. It was a pleasure to have a conversation with Dylan, his energy is bright and friendly, and there's no shortage of wisdom shared between the two of us during the course of our talk.

Zuby is something of a sensation on social media and beyond these days.  It wasn't always so, and he's been on the path to worldwide recognition for more than a decade. It's easy to believe, for those that have never tried, that "overnight success" is something that literally happens overnight. It almost never does, and Zuby has held the faith and walked the line for all these many years and has now become a figure of no small amount of notoriety. Though I haven't been around to see his growth over the years, I have been around to see his growth over the course of about a year. In that time, I watched him go from a well-respected independent rapper with the uncommon trait of clean lyrics and relentless positivity to a champion of the idea that reality and logic are things that should be held dear by any society that wishes to survive.  This is the third time I've had the pleasure to sit down for a conversation with me pal Zuby, and he's always been very gracious and thoughtful during these chats. This time was no different, and we discussed quite a few important and relevant ideas in this conversation. It will come as no surprise to those that know either of us that we talked about faith, biological reality, social standards, truth and even a short exploration of hypothetical squirrel societies.  Needless to say, this was an interesting conversation for the both of us as it is sure to be for you, so I suggest you buckle in and listen to the smooth dulcet tones of the one and only Zuby.

Mohammed Afikur Rahman is unique among all the guests I've had on the podcast, and indeed, of all the people I've met. This episode was quite bizarre in many ways, and will require a lot of patience if you are to listen to it. I suggest that you do.  The JivanMukti, as I mention within the episode, has only a sliver of his experience intersecting with that of what we'll call the "average" person's experience, and because of that, communication with him is something of an experience. During the course of this episode, he made sound effects, chanted, had moments of startling clarity and lucid intelligence, lost his train of thought entirely and played clips of Muezzins all while attempting to relay a grand unified theory of the universe through barely intelligible treatises on the nature of man and physics.  Yeah. But, here's the thing, I found myself opening my heart to the man, and listening to what he had to say, taking the time to let his words have their effect on me, and attempting to translate his message into something that other people might understand. Perhaps I succeeded, perhaps I did not, but it was the mere fact that I was able to allow myself to enter that space with him that I found remarkable.  You can tell that Mohammed is a good hearted dude, and in the moments of clarity he found during the episode, he relayed some very simple dreams for the future. He'd like to see a world purified of the chemical contaminants and psychological poisons that are so ubiquitous in the world today, and to see a return to harmony with the singular truth of existence which exists within each of us and, indeed, in all things. There's not a lot more I'd like to say about this episode other than this: Do please give your best attempt at staying in this strange space with us for the duration and see what happens to your experience afterwards.

Logocentrifugal 63 - Ali "The Rabbi's Rabbi" Alexander
Ali Alexander is a well-know political operator, and a passionate one at that. I first discovered Ali during my deep dive into narrative warfare and saw that he was able to create a lot of movement around the issues he champions. Then, after a recommendation by one of my fans (who hates to be called a fan), I reached out to Ali to invite him on the podcast. After I did, and he accepted, I began to pay more attention to what he was doing. One thing that really stands out to me about Ali is his relentlessness and focus on the issue(s) at hand. At almost any hour of night or day, you can find Ali on Twitter or Periscope pushing his current operation with constant content.  He might do a live Periscope 3-4-5 times per day, or more, and hammer on the same issue. This has proven to be extremely effective and influential, which helps to explain why so many others in the narrative battlegrounds are responding and reacting to Ali's frame so often. He's a smart dude, and has a lot of experience in this realm, and it's clear he knows what he's doing. Thus, it was interesting for me to be able to sit down with Ali for a short time to pick his brain. What I found in there is much what you would expect: Dedication, persistence, willfulness and drive. Some might look at that list and see negative traits, but not me, I see those as necessary ingredients in the recipe of elite success. Add that to the fact that Ali applies those traits to an overarching vision of a world he believes will be better than the one he is shaping it from, and what you get is a man absolutely dedicated to serving his divine mission. Whether or not you agree with Ali's mission or his tactics, one thing must be said; Ali Alexander is a force to be reckoned with. Want more from Ali? Twitter Cul+++ure Ditch YouTube

Uncle Kairos and I had a chat back in January that was intended to go on the YouTube account of Aion Media Co. It somehow got lost in the shuffle, and it's been bugging me ever since, so today, I decided to honor the time he took to chat with me and load it onto the podcast feed. This was a free-wheeling conversation in a lot of regards, and you can tell that I'm not as polished at the process as I am now (not that polished still, as you well know), but the content in the conversation is going to be of great interest to many of you and Kairos is quite a character. This conversation was on of those that left me feeling like I was on the right track with the podcast endeavor too, because after I finished it, I really felt like I was going to be able to make a difference in people's lives. We talked natural building, holistic communities, managing of ones own responsibilities in the physical and metaphysical aspects of life and a whole heap of other stuff too.  Uncle Kairos, as I affectionately call him, reveals his name in the podcast, but we'll let his anonymity in text form remain for the time being.

Logocentrifugal 61 - Andrew "A Podcast Guest With Cancer Is Still A Podcast Guest" Laird
Andrew Laird, or Drew as his friends call him, is a treasure of a human being. I am constantly awed by people like Drew. We all get caught up in the day-to-day travails and frustrations of our lives, and it can be difficult to take yourself out of your own frame to gain some perspective on just how lucky you really are.  It's not that hard when you talk to someone who's battling leukemia. If he were to be wasting away, feeling little hope, and letting the illness get the better of his mind, few would blame him. It's a very daunting and uncertain situation to be in, and to be certain, Drew has been in those places. But that is not what makes him remarkable. What makes Drew remarkable is the fact that instead of doing what would seem so natural to do, he has instead dedicated himself to turning his illness into an opportunity to bring positivity and perspective into as many lives as he can. He's a physical beast, still going to the gym all the time. He has a YouTube channel dedicated to sharing his moves in the gym, and to educating others about how to do the same, and to sharing his perspective and progress while doing battle with leukemia.  He also works in the mental health profession, helping others to gain a more useful mental frame from which to operate in the world and overcome their own mental hurdles. The best counselors, I have found, are the ones who've actually lived something that takes deep work and long-suffering struggle to overcome, and that's just what Drew brings to the table. This was a shorter podcast. Me pal Drew had an afternoon with his family, and I wanted to respect his time, so we kept it pretty short. But, that doesn't mean we didn't get into some very important topics and the like, nor that there isn't a wealth of ideas for you to consider.  There is.  We talk dealing with darkness, service as an answer to suffering, faith, family and more in another heartfelt episode of the podcast.

Joe Vrola was a surprising guest.  One of the reason is that, to be frank, I knew little about the man before we had our conversation. Basically, I knew he is a filmmaker and leans conservative in his politics, and that he reached out to me with an interest in coming on the podcast.  So, when this conversation went so deep into areas of the heart and soul, it was far from expected. You folks know by now, if you've been listening, that I like to help my guest share from their heart, and Joe opened his right up. We discussed his movie, we then transitioned into a political foundations, and then veered into counseling, addiction, obsession, God and religion, AA and all kinds of other things. This was a special conversation with a man who's only now beginning to emerge onto the social media scene because he's created something he's proud of. It was a pleasure getting to know Joe, and I'm happy to offer you the chance to do the same. Want more from Joe? Twitter Twitter (Movie Account) Facebook Website
