In this penultimate episode of School Sucks Podcast, we aim to offer some hope for the future.

I am joined by three of the most optimistic gentlemen I know: Wes Bertrand, Joel Bein, and Kevin Koskella. We discuss the "immunity of awareness" in an age of "menticide,"Β  stages of societal development, cultural re-birth, resistance to inner work, re-opening the closing space between stimulus and response, and some reflections on SSP.

Live At the Midwest Peace and Liberty Fest


Danny McCarthy is 26 years old and he currently makes his living working on an assembly line at an American auto manufacturer that you've likely heard about.

Episode 723: 723: This Is Not About A Virus (Continued) - With Darrell Becker and Tony Myers

itunes pic

This Is A Test, Part Six
A continued update of our 2020 series on the pandemic, encouraging a deeper and broader look at both the ever-shifting scientific consensus and dissenting voices of our current age. Today Darrell and I are joined by our friend Tony Myers, who teaches logic and co-hosts the Grand Theft World podcast.

This is a fascinating conversation, not just for its content but also for its conduct. Darrell and Tony have some major points of disagreement, and even without resolving them we are able to have a meaningful and educational discussion about the current state of affairs. I am very proud of this one.

Darrell’s website notmedicaladvice.co is a growing collection of informative shows, interviews, and health resources. Not Medical Advice videos are stories that show how various types of practitioners would find effective treatment for a wide variety of chronic problems. He also offers a free guide to finding the first member of your holistic healthcare team. Darrell offers holistic healthcare consultations, and he’s available to help you find effective medical options, locating healthcare professionals, medicines and treatments in your area, anywhere on the planet.

718: Young Marijuana Entrepreneur Strategy Session

itunes pic
(FREE A/V - DISCOMFORT WEEK! - Part 3 of 4)

Today you'll hear "The Discomfort Zone (s03e03) – Nick Hazelton Futures"

December 4, 2019 - We're investing!

Nick Hazelton is a 21-year-old entrepreneur, farmer, media creator, and a School Sucks favorite guest since he first appeared on the show several year ago.

He also loves weed. But hold that thought.

Circa 2015, Nick told Brett he wanted to leave high school to pursue yak herding. And then he did it!

He shared his self-education and self-reliance journey on numerous platforms, including Anarcho-Yakitalism Podcast, School Sucks, The Freedom Feens, and Unregistered With Thaddeus Russell. People who aren't inspired by Nick's story are assholes.

Recently, another Millennial, entrepreneurial SSP listener (and past TDZ guest) named Alex Bell (aka Yung Alexx) connected Yung Nick with TDZ co-host Andrew for advice on a new business venture...hemp farming.

"What's hemp?" Andrew asked.

However, Andrew does understand how to effectively use other people's money and create win-win situations; in just the last year he quickly built a successful real estate/AirBnB enterprise.

And Nick currently needs outside investment.

Or does he?

In a preliminary conversation, Andrew advised Nick on a variety options beyond going to a bank and asking for money. And after listening to Nick describe his goals and the needs behind those goals, Brett and Andrew offer a better solution and a more promising path.

How Cherry-Picking Helped
Ruin Science, the Economy,
Race Relations, Higher Ed,
America, and the World
(BUT can you put it to work for you?!)

(Emotional Manipulators For Hire, Episode 9) Friend, copywriter, marketer, and Facebook World Champion Nathan Fraser and I continue our monthly conversation about marketing and media manipulation. You'll learn more about the tactics politicians and propagandists use against you, and how you can re-purpose such tactics for good.

Today: How a biologically inevitable mental shortcut called availability bias leads to (and enables) the destructive practices of cherry-picking and "non-false fabrication

We'll explore:
* how one or two missing puzzle pieces can completely distort the full picture. * by controlling what information is available, you have major influence over the conclusions people come to.

MUSIC:
"INFOMERCIAL MUSIC CUE" Scott Douglas MacLachlan
"Children" Fabrication

715: The Split Personality of Entrepreneurship

itunes pic
(FREE A/V - DISCOMFORT WEEK! - Part 1 of 4)

Recorded January 11, 2019 - Back together in Pittsburgh, Brett and Andrew discuss a book called The E-Myth: Why Most Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It. The book was written decades ago and last updated at the dawn of the digital revolution, but it contains wisdom still very relevant to us today. The E-Myth describes the self-employed or small business owner as a person who initially tries to play three distinct roles: a technician, a manager, and an entrepreneur. Brett and Andrew evaluate their aptitudes in each area, and discuss strategies for improving.

711: Century of the Safe (Un-iversity Book Club - "Why We Drive")

itunes pic
In this third monthly meeting of the Un-iversity Book Club, we discuss Why We Drive: Toward a Philosophy of the Open Road by Matthew B. Crawford.

What appears to be a book celebrating driving as liberation is just as much a condemnation of the "safety-ism" that has so far defined the 21st century, and certainly this new decade.

Some snapshots:
β€œLeft to its own internal logic, the regime of public safety must find ways to justify its own growing payroll, and its colonization of ever more domains of life. This can always be accomplished through further infantilization of its clients; under the banner of good democratic values.”

"Self-driving cars must be understood as one more escalation in the war to claim and monetize every moment of life that might otherwise offer a bit of private head space.”

Music:
"Drive Slow" Kanye West
"Open Road" Slightly Stoopid
"Traffic Tickets" The Gadjits

710: Removing Self-Limiting Beliefs, With Nick Rundlett

itunes pic
Nick Rundlett returns to first recap and reflect on our March 2020 conversation, as we sat on the edge of our seats, watching and waiting to see what it would be like to live through a global pandemic. We turned out okay.

Today we'll talk about what we did with the last year, as far as adaptation and discovering growth opportunities. Nick has made some major strides with a program called MindFix; we explore the identification and removal of self-limiting beliefs, and the Lefkoe Method of addressing repetitive negative thoughts (Lefkoe Stimulus Process).

We'll wrap up talking about fitness.

708: The Cruel Prejudices of Inclusive Marketing (with Nathan Fraser)

itunes pic
(Emotional Manipulators For Hire, Episode 7) Friend, copywriter, marketer, and Facebook World Champion Nathan Fraser and I continue our monthly conversation about marketing and media manipulation. You'll learn more about the tactics politicians and propagandists use against you, and how you can re-purpose such tactics for good.

Today we'll talk about what has been called "woke advertising."
Why it fails, and IF it really fails in the long run.

People love to say "get woke, go broke?"
I wonder if that's really a reliable rule, but Nathan applies a formula:

"This market is too much X. Let's get more Y."
Y comes in and wants the existing market to change to meet their preferences.
Y was never the target market - Y becomes a Phantom Audience.
X gets tired of being bashed for liking things the way they were - leaves. Industry/fandom collapses.

Episode 707: 707: Building A Second Brain (Part 2 of 2)

itunes pic
If you've enjoyed our past content on Getting Things Done, and you're looking ways to improve and/or simplify your organization system, this show is for you!

Guest: Alex Bell was the teenager I had mind when I first started this whole School Sucks project. Struggling through school and variety of personal challenges, he was the kind of person I hoped to reach. He discovered School Sucks Podcast in 2009, when the show was about three months old, and he has been a listener since then. He then became a supporter, and then a contributor, and now even an advisor.

We first connected in Salem, MA in 2017, and since then we've become very close friends.

Today we continue our discussion of Tiago Forte's "Building A Second Brain" organization and productivity system, focusing this time on "Just In Time" project management.

This includes:
- GTD vs. BASB
- flow cycles
- setting up mentally, emotionally, and environmentally
- the resource 'costs' of deep work

Music:
"Moonscapes" Dangermuffin
"Up Up and Away" Kid Cudi

He then became a supporter, and then a contributor, and now even an advisor.

We first connected in Salem, MA in 2017, and since then we've become very close friends.

So today Alex is back in an advisory role, to help me look at some ways to implement Tiago Forte's "Building A Second Brain" organization and productivity system. We'll talk about what we've already done, and how much further I should go.

We do an overview of the entire methodolgy, but then we'll focus in on two of the key concepts: PARA (projects, areas, resources, archive) and Progressive Summarization (for creating more actionable and accessible notes).

705: A Year of Adjustment - With Diane Murphy of BigFish

itunes pic
Diane Murphy taught in public schools for 30 years before she retired early to build BigFish, an innovative self-directed learning community in Dover, NH. I had the pleasure of speaking with Diane at the FreeCoast Festival in 2017, after hearing her presentation on BigFish. We reconnected today to discuss the growth of a self-directed learning center, and the adjustments needed to stay up and running amidst the pandemic restrictions.

704: The Power of Narrative (with Nathan Fraser)

(Emotional Manipulators For Hire, Episode 6) Friend, copywriter, marketer, and Facebook World Champion Nathan Fraser and I continue our monthly conversation about marketing and media manipulation. You'll learn more about the tactics politicians and propagandists use against you, and how you can re-purpose such tactics for good.

Today:
- How stories supersede reality.
- How the stories we tell ourselves, and the stories we except as truth from others, become the background programming that runs our lives.
- How stories get people killed
- In marketing and sales :The stories customers tell themselves that prevent them from buying, and how to replace those stories with ones that will prime them for buying. And how to encourage those stories.
