Dreams from My Father

No, this is not about Barack Obama's book.  In this episode, I walk you through a real life example of how I do dream analysis.  Step by step, I reveal a process where I combine several strategies, and gain synergies by combining them, in order to obtain greater self knowledge.  Strategies covered include meditation, yoga, inner-family systems therapy, affirmations, Nathaniel Branden's sentence completion exercises, Marshall Rosenberg's Non-violent communication, and of course dream analysis.

 

Below are links to more details on various topics discussed during the show.

Authentic Parenting - Reboot Your Kids recast 001

While the Reboot Your Kids website lives on, it no longer hosts the podcasts I recorded with Kevin Geary last year.  For posterity's sake, I'm putting those shows into the Choice Conversations feed.

 

In this our first episode, Kevin and I introduce authentic parenting.

Objectivist Parenting with Roslyn Ross

Author and blogger Rosyln Ross joins me to talk about her new book A Theory of Objectivist Parenting.  The school of philosophy known as objectivism, proposed by Ayn Rand, is very strong in most ways, but is decidedly lacking in the area of interpersonal relationships and especially parenting.  Roslyn shores that up nicely.

 

Do schools murder the authentic self?  Are high achieving youths numbing out in their down time?  Is Roslyn moving to Nicaragua so that she can take her kids into bars and casinos?  And what’s wrong with Sudbury schools anyway?  All this and more during today's show!

 

Note that when Roslyn mentions "Wes" and "Antony," she's referring to mutual friends, and prominent members of Team Choice, Wes Bertrand and Antony Sammeroff.

 

My apologies for the accoustics on this show.  This is the first podcast recorded in my new home, and I've not yet unpacked everything.  The room I was in had nothing soft to absorb sound, and thus it sounded like I was recording in a cave.  I'll be sure to remedy that in future episodes.

Positive Thinking with Antony Sammeroff

Antony and I discuss positive thinking.  What is it?  Why does it work?  How do we practice it?  What are some of the pitfalls?  Isn't positive thinking just magical thinking?  Is the Law of Attraction real?  We cover all this and more!

Real AGI with Peter Voss  - Artificial Intelligence Series Part 4

For the fourth installment of the Artificial Intelligence series, Darrell Becker and I interview Peter Voss.  Peter is an entrepreneur, inventor, engineer and scientist who has been active in the field of artificial intelligence for decades.  He shares with us his first hand experience in the industry: where it began, where it's currently at, where it is going, and talks us through the myriad of ways in which AI will be beneficial to the human race.  What motivates an artificial intelligence?  How does morality play in?  Do we need to worry about a weaponized AI?  We cover all of this and more in this entertaining and enlightening discussion.

Trauma and Healing with Daniel Mackler

Daniel Mackler joins me to discuss his journey of healing.  We talk about how his experience with trauma is a microcosm of what is occurring the world over.  We cover the 4 stages of enlightenment (dissociation, depression, grieving, enlightenment), as well as how positive thinking techniques and psychotherapy could be keeping you from healing your wounds.  This conversation goes from celibacy, to minimalism, to world travel, and beyond!

Government Sponsored Social Media Trolls with Fergus Hodgson

I’m joined by Fergus Hodgson, the Editor in Chief of the Pan Am Post.   We discuss the challenges and rewards encountered working in “new media,” including being harassed by people who earn a paycheck from the government to troll on the internet.   Is it important to follow current events?  What about political action and personal action and your sphere of influence?  Do people get their jollies by being felt up by the TSA?  What does Fergus have to say about international living, perpetual travel, and minimalism?  Why are some people more open to the message of freedom and liberty?  Will artificial intelligence end facebook and twitter as we know it?  All this and more in this entertaining and insightful interview!

Hips Don't Lie:  'Sex at Dawn' book review

Drew Sample and I do a book review of Christopher Ryan’s Sex at Dawn.  Are pair bonding and monogamy human nature?  What does science say about polyamory and promiscuity?  We break down the evidence presented in the book spanning anthropology, human anatomy, psychology, and primatology.  What can we learn about human sexuality from the shape and size of the human penis?  What does it really mean to have “sex like an animal?”  Are women kinkier than men?  The conversation covers a lot of ground, even getting into the benefits of communism, the downside of agriculture, the paleo diet, and much, much more!

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress Book Review - Artificial Intelligence Series Part 2

 

 

Darrell Becker is back for the second installment of the Artificial Intelligence series.  This time we review the science fiction classic The Moon is a Harsh Mistress from Robert A. Heinlein.  We cover in detail the role of artificial intelligence in this novel, plus many other interesting topics related to the tale.  Is this book truly a libertarian manifesto?  How well does it hold up as revolutionary guidebook?  Are there superior family systems than monogamy?  All that, and more!

Democrats and Republicans are Half Right with Drew Sample

Drew Sample from The Sample Hour joins me for a wide ranging discussion.  Here is just a “sample” of what we cover:  Democrats and Republicans are half right.  Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, and the NFL.  Is voting important?  Why democrats are a bigger threat to civil liberties than republicans.  Why republicans grow the size of government.  The importance of living a principled life.  What we’ve learned from podcasting.  The evils of prohibition.  Prison is big business.  Maurice Clarett, Terrelle Pryor, the SEC and college football scandals.  Hitting rock bottom.  People’s relationship to money.  All this, and more!

 

I should warn you that the language on this is a little stronger than what you've normally come to expect from Choice Conversations.  Please keep this in mind.

Sugar Taxation with Christopher James Clark

I was recently on The Rebooted Body podcast with Kevin Geary, talking to blogger and author Christopher James Clark.  Christopher wrote an article for The Huffington Post about a potential new tax on sugar in the United States.  The three of us discuss this article at length and delve deep into the pros and cons of attempting to use government violence to force social change.

 

Here is Christopher’s article on sugar taxation:  http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/christopher-james-clark/sugar-taxation_b_5624785.html

The Virtue of Selfishness with Wes Bertrand

So sacrifice is a virtue and selfishness is a vice, right?  Not so fast!  Wes Bertrand joins me to discuss the philosophy of self-interest.  Of course much of the time is spent talking about Ayn Rand’s great book on the topic, The Virtue of Selfishness. 

 

What is wrong with sacrifice?  Isn't selfishness evil?  Wes and I go deep on this one, exploring the effects of the dominant belief in today’s culture, the philosophy of sacrifice, and how that contrasts with Ayn Rand's philosophy.

The College Football Show with Andy Evans

I was recently a guest on The College Football Show with Andrew T. Evans, talking about Ohio State’s upcoming season.  We cover Braxton Miller’s injury, J.T. Barrett, the new defensive coordinator, our predictions for the year, and much more!

 

 

 

I realize this is a bit different from what you’re used to seeing here on Choice Conversations.  I must admit that if you’re not a fan of Big Ten football then this is probably not the show for you.

Having Relationships with People Stuck in the Matrix

In today’s show I have a round table discussion with Antony Sammeroff and Rock Barcellos on having relationships with people who are still plugged in to the matrix.  What is it like after having taken the red pill?

 

What do we mean when we say we’ve taken the red pill?  We’re talking about going against cultural norms, going through a philosophical awakening.  This covers a variety of topics which I’ve discussed in previous episodes:                                  

 

·         Voluntarism

·         Atheism

·         Philosophy in relationships (defoo, etc)

·         Authenticity in relationships (openly expressing emotions, etc)

·         IFS therapy

What are some effective strategies for dealing with these blue pill-ers?  How do we deal with the fact that we typically look crazy to those still plugged in, even though they are the ones who can't see past the illusion?

 

Next, we delve into the differences between needs based judgment and morality based judgment.  From there, we discuss if morality even exists, or is it just something people made up?  What about our thoughts on Stefan Molyneux and "the against me" argument?
