Top Discussions This Week 2/12

I hate to admit that Tom Brady is the GOAT. As a Colts fan, it really pains me, but he proved it this week, even if some may not agree. But, the Super Bowl isn’t the only thing that happened this week. Lots of great conversations happened on Twitter, podcasts, and here at the Conversation of Our Generation. Keep reading to see what caught my attention this week.

Top Podcasts This Week

This week’s Pints with Jack episode was great. David talked to Jason Lepoj√§rvi about love, sex, and marriage, and I walked away with some tremendous insights. The richness that Jason brought to the conversation was great. If you haven’t been following Matt and David as they go through the Screwtape Letters, you should.

There was also a great conversation on religiosity and secularism on the Rubin Report. His roundtable with Peter Boghossian, Eric Metaxas, Rabbi Wolpe confronted problems facing our culture from different perspectives.

Social Chatter

My Conversations:

Stephen and Brian from The Vital Masculinity Podcast joined me again for a great conversation about how to build a virtuous society. As always, it was a great conversation with the guys, as we discussed friendship, virtue, and much more confronting our society.

Also, I was a guest on The Survival Podcast. Jack and I discussed how to have productive conversations ordered toward truth. Instead of trying to win an argument, we talked about how to dialogue with someone in a way that you grow together.

200. Restoring Old Homes with Beauty and Purpose - Conversation of Our Generation

I've talked to a couple of architects and discussed the charm of local neighborhoods. In my conversation with Bill Martin, we discussed restoring old homes. And, we talked about his philosophy on how to do that in a way that serves his client and is in keeping with the neighborhood. Furthermore, he does this with sustainability as a primary focus as well. If you're interested in learning more, listen below to understand his philosophy. You can also find more about Bill's work here. https://conversationofourgeneration.com/2021/03/01/restoring-old-homes-with-beauty-and-purpose/(opens in a new tab) "Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness." -Frank Gehry Restoring Old Homes After a while, homes need to be touched up. Even if they're in good shape, people may want to change them to fit a new style of living. So, restoring old homes is important if we don't want to tear down and rebuild. It is also a more efficient and sustainable way of updating a home than tearing down and rebuilding. The practicality of restoration, I think, is clear. But, there is something to maintaining the character and history of a home and not getting rid of it. Doing it With Beauty And Purpose Bill does this with beauty. He focuses on creating an aesthetically impressive home that is in keeping with the neighborhood. Instead of trying to fuel his ego, he seeks to build something for the client and the community. Building with purpose is another part of this, ensuring that his building serves the client and the community. His approach that recognizes the need to balance these different uses and economic factors is unique. More architects should learn about his philosophy, which he calls E-FABism. "Great buildings that move the spirit have always been rare. In every case they are unique, poetic, products of the heart." -Arthur Erickson --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
