Ted Kaczynski...heard of him? Maybe you know him by his nickname, the “Unabomber”. Ring a bell, now?
Well, he terrorized a lot of people and even killed a few. Not a good look, but you know what? He wrote a manifesto. Of course he did, he’s an evil genius. In it, he laid out a bleak outlook of the world due to the rise of technology. Is he a prophet or just insane?
Listen in as Austin and I discuss his philosophy and try to decide for ourselves. Let’s hear your opinion. What do you think?
At first glance, it seems obvious, right? Somethings we are just entitled to. Well, what are those things? Why do we feel entitled to them?
How has that list of items evolved and multiplied to the point where some parts of society feel they are entitled to almost everything? Is this our fault or just a natural, or unnatural, progression?
Check out Austin and I’s conversation about why some people feel entitled, whether or not it’s truly valid, and where it is leading us.
Will you agree or disagree? Let’s find out!
It’s Over! Now What? It’s Time To Transition...But How?
Life is about change! Constant change, really. Whether it’s relationships, careers, pop culture, societal norms, we are always transitioning from one thing to another.
Sometimes, that transition is obvious. Sometimes, it’s not. It may be a clean break or it might be a convoluted mess. Either way, how we handle that transition is key to our happiness and well being.
Listen in to the eclectic conversation Austin and I have about all sorts of transitions including breakups, elections, and almost everything else in between!
There is a lot of talk about “privilege” these days. What are people really trying to say? Do we throw that word around to cover up some deep seated resentment or is it truly a concept we need to better understand?
It’s obvious it doesn’t have just one definition and, therefore, it means different things to different people. It makes all the difference to try and understand the motivation behind each.
Check out the conversation Austin and I have exploring the differences and nuances of what privilege can mean. Let’s see how they match up with your concept of privilege!

Check out this episode as Austin and I discuss each and every track. You get the behind the scenes tour before anyone else!
I know, I know, I know...how outrageous, right? Well, those days are just days. Nothing more. What they represent is only given by what we decide to do with them. Resolutions, goals, and other promises to ourselves don’t need to wait for a special day. We need them everyday!
Listen in as Austin and I dissect the intricacies of why these reflection points are notable, but not necessary, for what we need in order to be successful in life.
Boy, oh boy, oh boy! This one gets heated. Austin and I get after it over how much division is taking place in politics as well as how much we can trust “polls”. Are we just now at a tipping point or did we cross that line a while ago? Does it even matter?
Whatever side of that line you fall on, you don’t want to miss all the perspective and viewpoints we touch on in this episode!
Support System...Personal Responsibility...Enabling...Codependency. Are These All Overrated?
There is always talk about how important a support system is...but is it really? What part does it play in the overall success for someone? What about accountability? What about those who say one thing and do another? Oh, yes...don’t forget about the cows!!
Come join us to navigate this episode as Austin and I dive in to sort out what makes sense and what doesn’t.
We started with a topic of Winners and Losers, Make-ups and Break-Ups, but that didn’t last long...reality set in. They say perception is reality and that we create our own reality. Is this true? How do all these ideas about reality relate to one another? Why does it even matter? Listen in as Austin and I get slightly philosophical and try to figure it all out!
The “Think.Care.LIVE.More” philosophy is all about awareness, kindness, and action! It’s a way to frame your life with a perspective that will improve your current situation and lay the groundwork for a better future. Listen in as Austin and I touch on the key elements and decide for yourself if this is for you. I know you won’t regret it!
Special election episode! We discuss why it is always important to vote, some of the challenges we face as a society, and a hot conversation about the state of today’s politics. It’s a great mash-up of ideas and perspectives and one hell of a point made by Austin. You don’t want to miss this!
If having success or being successful was easy, we’d all be happy and fulfilled...we’re not. It’s just the reality of the situation….however, we can be! In this episode, Austin and I discuss some practical and helpful tips to help you achieve the success and fulfillment you desire. Check it out!
Look, I know they mean well and for a good chunk of people it does the job, but c’mon...really? Are we lowering our expectations that much? At what point does it start to hinder growth and exploration? There has to be some context and higher standards to aspire to! Hear what Austin and I have to say and see if you agree. Enjoy!
Special Guest Episode! We have singer / songwriter Schara joining us. You may have heard her Top 100 song, Real Love, or saw her video on MTV and now you’ll discover what inspires her songs and how she handles life in these crazy times. You’d be surprised how much Schara and Austin have in common! (Recorded 9.13.20)
These days, as always, there is a battle raging about respect and admiration. Is it a right that some deserve automatically? Is it earned? Voting is the great equalizer for both of these issues. See how it’s all connected as Austin and I discuss the many angles of these arguments!
I think we all have an idea of what is perceived as “masculine”. Is it accurate? Does it change? How is it good and bad for society? What about “toxic masculinity”? We get into this as well as current events and trends that are shaping our ideas of masculinity. Definitely a hot topic!
They provide an explanation and comfort for those willing to believe. Their assertions are hardly grounded in fact, if any at all, and are practically unprovable...and that’s ok for their followers. They do serve a purpose, though. However, history has shown them to be productive and destructive all at the same time. Which one, exactly, is being described? So worth a listen!
We’ve all heard about climate change. The imminent impacts and long term destruction, but what about space and ocean exploration? Could that help? Why isn’t there more? Could the answers we’ve been looking for be found with these explorations? Opinions and perspectives are challenged and discussed so listen in and decide for yourself!
Guest Episode!! We have Michael “Putty” Putnam joining us to discuss how best to help others maximize their potential and reach their goals.

There is a lot of solid information in this episode that can benefit us all. Tune in...you won’t want to miss out!
You know their names...Star Wars, Star Trek, Rocky, Batman, James Bond, etc...We’re talking about franchises that are 40+ years old and still going strong. Which one has the most influence? Which one is most entertaining? Which one doesn’t belong? Check out our unique perspectives and choose for yourself!
Why is it that some people think the best days are behind them and others believe the best is yet to come? What do you believe? We discuss this from different points of view and the results might just surprise you!
“Persuasion” and “Demographics” are OK, but “Manipulation” and “Stereotypes” are not. Why? Words get twisted and misconstrued. Is it really that important to understand how and why? Will it make a difference? Does “Cancel Culture” exist and, if so, use this to its advantage? Things get heated so tune in to find out what happened!
We’re jumping from topic to topic and covering everything from social media posts that seem to make sense...but really don’t (shocker) to the Muppets to emotional well being. You want variety? Here you go!
We’ve all been there...relationships that are good, bad, or just plain ugly. Did we learn what went right, went went wrong? What is the key to a successful relationship and what’s stopping Austin from dating right now? Tune in and find out!
Everyone has an opinion on whether or not there is a place for religion and spirituality in today’s society. The thing is, the occult is just as much a presence, as well. More than that...there’s a direct connection to Scooby Doo! I know you’re curious… Listen in to the conversation with our guest, Tehya Lauren, and see what it’s all about!
I know, I know. It sounds blasphemous that self-care and gratitude are overrated, but listen in to this conversation and decide for yourself. Maybe the “Think More : Care More : LIVE More” mindset will change your mind!
Does history repeat itself? YES! Will we finally learn the lesson? That still remains unknown. So many issues to talk about. Is there a “correct” perspective on this? Is there only one?
The mainstream media has transformed over the years. It’s time we take a different perspective when referring to it and realize that maybe, just maybe, they’re really not to blame after all.
Why do we feel so entitled to have our say on social media? Check out this conversation of how the 1st Amendment just isn’t going to help...and why that’s exactly the way it should be!
