How to Prevent Burnout

This episode is a bit of a departure from my normal conversations about politics, philosophy, etc. Nicole from the Infinity Twins podcast joined me to discuss productivity and how to prevent burnout. While I don't want to be in the self-help space, I do think this is a real problem today. So, I wanted to offer some thoughts from Nicole and myself to help people be more productive while also staying sane.

Virtue Signaling to Score Points

It's become easier to not only attack your enemy but to score points for it. And that's where it becomes very dangerous - the whole idea of virtue signaling on both sides. A lot of people on the right will say that people on the left are the ones that virtue signal. Places like the Daily Wire can virtue signal just as much.

Know Your Neighbors

If we want to build a more virtuous society, I think it's good to start at home. Who are your neighbors? If you don't know them, this will make the case why you should know your neighbors.

What is Smiles Matter?

You might be wondering, "What is smiles matter?" After we began masking due to the COVID pandemic, many people noticed a dehumanizing effect. The masks hide our faces, which is a huge part of how we communicate. So, a few people on Twitter started this movement to urge others to smile. And, most importantly, they want to ensure that each person they interact with knows that they're valued. Below, Ronni Peck explains how and why the Smiles Matter movement started.

Christian Culture Depicted in Art

Our secular society denies so much of the Christian worldview, and often puts it down or oppresses it. But, Stephen and I have seen some interesting shows that offer a look into the world when it was driven by Christian values. Art can offer interesting insights into these historical periods, and not all new content is bad. Some really is truly insightful. This is a good discussion of what happens when you find Christian culture depicted in art.

180. Talking Politics And Virtue

In our society, politics has jumped to the front of most everyone's mind. Despite its prominence in our lives, it seems that many people don't know how to talk about it. But, that doesn't have to be the case. A while ago, I sat down to talk with the guys from the Vital Masculinity Podcast... Continue Reading →

179. Book Review | The Recovery of Family Life by Scott Yenor

So, I'm now back in the office for recording, and if you can't see it you should check out my YouTube Channel. You'll be able to watch the book reviews and see the new office. But, to get to the topic for this episode, I'll be discussing a book by Scott Yenor. The Recovery of Family Life is an insightful look into the attack on the family, and how to push back. I learned about this book because someone reached out to me about it. After reading most of it, I can say this is a crucial read for everyone in our culture today. Unlike other reviews I've done, this is one that someone reached out to me to review. And, I'm glad she did. If it weren't for her reaching out, I wouldn't have found this book that has really intrigued me. I must say that this has really changed how I approach some of the cultural-political problems we face.

170. Culture From the Conservative Perspective – Alan Cornett Interview

Today, many people don't understand what it means to be conservative. In fact, the whole conservative perspective is often misrepresented and misunderstood. However, I think that is largely due to to bad branding rather than bad arguments. Here, you'll get a great discussion about culture with Alan Cornett, creator of the Cultural Debris Podcast and the Eat Kentucky Podcast.

168. Drawn in by Beauty – Stained Glass Zealot Interview

Recently, I sat down with the Stained Glass Zealot to talk about the beauty of stained glass, and how it draws you in. Check out his Twitter account here or his Substack to see what he's doing to show how beautiful this art is. Mostly, we discussed the beauty of churches. But, we dove into several other topics like the Lindy Effect, Divine Light by Abbot Suger, fashion vs. eternal beauty, and much more. Listen here or subscribe below to watch the interview:

166. Election Thoughts, Libertarianism, ACB and More with Sean Boston

With the election today, I thought it would be good to share a discussion I had with Sean Boston where we talked about our election thoughts and much more. We talked about ACB, Libertarianism, and our secularizing culture. Furthermore, we were able to agree and disagree, while having a lively discussion. Plus, it helps that Sean is a very funny guy, and much sharper than he gives himself credit for. So, dive into the conversation here:

135. Book Review | Filthy Rich by James Patterson

With everything going on with Ghislaine Maxwell, and potentially another "suicide" on the way, I thought it would be good to give my thoughts on a great book about Epstein. This story is going to come back up, and I think it's important to know the background so you don't get gaslighted.

I’m Angry

This is not the usual post from me. It is a note about why I'm fed up with all that's going on today in our society and our culture. This one's a bit different, but I think very necessary.
