Is removing Theodore Roosevelt’s Statue from the Museum of Natural History a step too far? On Today’s episode of the Podcast John and Isaac announce some exciting news about the show and dive into the discussion of the removal of statues. This discussion opens up into a question about the tension surrounding attempting to rewrite or forget portions of our own history. Finally, John and Isaac ask, “should we forget the positive qualities of a nation or individual because of some qualities we are ashamed of?”
This is a good one ladies and gentlemen. In this episode, we tackle the problem with the “Reply Guy”: Those who spend their free time biting at the ankles of the accomplished, believing they are serving a larger purpose. We have all been through the Reply Guy stage, but we don’t all make it out. This episode seeks to illuminate the uselessness of the Reply Guy and tries to embrace a higher calling for individuals stuck in this phase. We also touch on tangential topics such as: The Removal of Teddy Roosevelt, The Ukraine Crisis, and New Years Diets. Check it out.
Is our Modern military prepared for our next major conflict? Are our civilian leadership focusing on the appropriate things to demand of the military leadership serving this nation? Are Flag Officers appropriately responding to the requests of our legislative and executive branch. Lethality can and should always be a priority of our military personnel. Lately it seems as though we have not allowed the Department of Defense to prioritize the right things.
Do we actually know what Artificial Intelligence is or are we just repeating things that we have heard other people say about it.

Will this way of life rise us to utopia, or will it plunge us into despair?

Ten years in brutal warrior training followed by a deadly test… Or a leap of faith off a manmade structure, face-first into the earth… Or your hand in a bullet ant glove where any sound you make will mean failure…
Today John and I discuss rites of passage for young men. Why have they existed throughout history and across cultures? Have we outgrown them, or do they still serve a purpose? What is it about young men who seek these experiences out, or the older men who carry forward these cultural institutions in the first place?
All of this and more in a heavy Tough Talk that is determined to be one of our most charged yet.

Against the backdrop of racial tensions and social unrest, the Kyle Rittehouse saga has been one of the most contentious topics of the last year. As a country, it seems we are watching two different movies on the same screen. On this episode, John and I tackle the issues following Rittenhouse’s acquittal in Kenosha. We urge listeners to challenge their own entrenched narrative and view the case through all lenses: legal, political, and emotional. We cover the media’s telling of the story, the truths and untruths that were spread, and the drives that lead young men to seek treacherous situations. We hope enjoy.
