    Interview: A Counselor/Pastor on Navigating Compassion for Homosexuality and His Faith.

    Interview: A Counselor/Pastor on Navigating Compassion for Homosexuality and His Faith.

    In this episode:


    The good and bad of how the Church treats LGBTQ+ members
    Is there a double standard in the Church on the question of sin? Are some sins worse than others?
    What to do with unanswerable questions in your Faith?
    Why believe in a God at all if he created everything, knew what was going to happen, and damned billions to hell?

    I will say that this was a challenging episode to figure out and publish. I'm glad we had this conversation, and I'm expecting a lot of backlash. I chose to publish anyway because the spirit of this season remains the same. How do we approach the controversial? How do we have conversations with folks that don't have the same beliefs as we do? How do we hold space for other beliefs without needing to fix them?

    Why is this beneficial?


    This is the most common reason why relationships stop working. We are unwilling to examine things from the other side because they're just "wrong"
    This is arguably the thing our current society is worst at. Wanna have a conversation about masks? Be prepared for a grueling flame war.
    Being able to stand up for what you believe without getting upset or lecturing about it is one of the single best ways to be attractive and persuasive.

    There's a lot to unpack here, and while I don't believe in the views expressed on this episode, I have deep respect for my guest for showing up and answering my questions about Faith and some of the seeming contradictions that exist within.

    Everything Wrong with Law of Attraction & Mindset Gurus

    Everything Wrong with Law of Attraction & Mindset Gurus

    There are a lotta gurus and experts out there pushing mindset lately. I HATE IT.

    YOU JUST gOtTa haVe an AbunDanCe MindSetT Brooooooo. THen it'll all come naturally.

    NAH. I'm debunking that shit right now. Today.

    1. Mindset is EARNED. I started off believing I was ugly. I didn't become someone who thought of themselves as an attractive person by thinking positive thoughts and doing daily affirmations. I earned that belief by putting myself in uncomfortable situations because I thought I was going to die alone. Your pain is fuel. Use it to push to the next level. Where do you begin? Look to see where you're most uncomfortable, then begin chipping away. You don't have to be perfect at it. If you want to be an expert though, you have to be willing to go where no one else has gone.

    Mindset ONLY comes as a result of concerted effort, action, risk, and discomfort.

    2. It's easier for gurus to pitch mindset because it requires no effort. People will accept it. But we all know that one person who's always trying to force themselves to be positive. It comes off fake. Plastic. Same goes with mindsets. Once you have them, they're so goddamn useful. But when you do not, you cannot THINK, cajole, or affirm your way into believing it. 

    3. In fact, there is ONLY 1 useful mindset ---- and it is this: if someone else has done it, it's POSSIBLE for you to do it, too. No matter how unlikely it may seem - there is a way. It's your job to find it. The minute you close yourself off to the possibility that something MIGHT be attainable, you're screwed. You're stuck. There's no way out for you now. Might as well throw in the towel.

    To achieve incredible things, you MUST FIRST BELIEVE IT CAN BE DONE.

    I saw this a lot on Reddit. Men who were convinced they would never be able to "convince" a gal to love them for who they really were. It might work for chads and alphas. But "not for me". And those same people will forever be doomed to be single, alone, and bitter until they accept that it's POSSIBLE to learn how to become attractive.

    Interview: "Why I chose to be a 24 year old virgin"

    Interview: "Why I chose to be a 24 year old virgin"

    When I discovered that a friend of mine had made the deliberate, non-religious choice to be a virgin... I had to get him on the show. This was, for me, a rare opportunity to delve into the mindset of someone who was successful...but hadn't had a lot of romantic experience. In a lot of ways, it was like talking to myself in my 20s...

    I spent most of my adult life trying to escape virginity. It was a badge of dishonor. A scarlet letter letting other men and women know that I wasn't yet a man - whatever that meant. Only to discover that, once I was no longer a virgin, it didn't change who I was at all. There was no "ah-hah!" I'm a man! moment. There was no sudden insight or knowledge of the universe or women. I was just a guy who'd had sex once.

    This conversation was by far one of the most fun that I've had and it was an emotional rollercoaster for me the entire way through. Wow. There was so much I wanted to fix or change and it took everything I had to avoid doing that at every turn. So you'll get to watch me STRUGGLE with that as the interview goes on.

    His voice has been altered for anonymity, but his answers have not - and there's a ton to appreciate and unpack in this episode.

    In this podcast you'll discover...


    Why choose virginity at all?
    What is the mindset of a person who isn't bothered by this label?
    Is authentic self expression as a dating strategy actually viable?
    How do you plan for a romantic life when you haven't had any experience?
    And surprisingly, all my hard opinions about The Game, Pickup Artists, and the seduction community in general make a debut this episode.

    Get it while it's hot.

    Interview: Why High Performance Execs Started Taking Psychedelics [feat Seibo Shen of BRNR lab]

    Interview: Why High Performance Execs Started Taking Psychedelics [feat Seibo Shen of BRNR lab]

    [Seibo Shen is the CEO of Vapexhale, Hanu Labs, and BRNR Lab, dad, husband, and executive business coach.]

    I speak with Seibo on why he uses psychedelics and cannabis and why he chooses to do so as a father and serial entrepreneur.

    One of the things they never tell you is JUST how much of the wealthiest, most successful people on the planet do drugs. But not just any drugs. What you see time and again is the same 3-4 substances - ayahuasca, psilocybin mushrooms, DMT, and LSD. So the question you might be asking yourself now is....is there a reason for this?

    In this interview, we talk about the benefits and side effects of some of the more common hallucinogens, how that helps some people perform at a much higher level, and the freaky part of experiencing other realities.

    If you're curious about psychedelics and exploring altered states of mind, or if you're a seasoned psychonaut - this is the episode for you.

    If you want to pick up your own vape pen or want to support what Seibo's about, check out his site below:

    Interview: The Unexpected Cost of the Purity Movement (No Sex Before Marriage)

    Interview: The Unexpected Cost of the Purity Movement (No Sex Before Marriage)

    When I first heard about the Purity movement, it was from the Jonas Brothers.
    Each brother with their own little ring, suggesting that they wouldn't be having sex until marriage. Which, wow. The willpower required to do that as a world-famous musician. Not surprised that didn't go well.
    I also had some friends who took it on earlier in life. But until I did this interview I really had no understanding of what living like would do to my mind.
    In this interview, I speak with a good friend of mine who waited til marriage. I count myself lucky in a lot of ways, but I never expected to feel that way about this. One final note, no hate towards people in the movement. This is the exploration of some of the aftermath when someone is encouraged to rapidly change their mindset from "sex is sinful and bad" to "you should have all the sex and please your husband".
    The book recommendation that showed up on the podcast is PURE by Linda Kay Klein.

    Interview: Why BDSM deserves a second look & how you can get started.

    Interview: Why BDSM deserves a second look & how you can get started.

    "We're blessed to be a galaxy in a skinsuit..."

    In this interview, I invite a good friend of mine and (IMO) an expert on BDSM to talk about what that means.

    This is most decidedly NSFW and if talking about sex and pleasure makes you squeamish, this isn't the episode for you.

    Inside we cover what BDSM actually involves

    How to get started on your own journey

    The most dangerous practices to avoid

    The basic types of sensation play and how to do them

    And as an added bonus, you'll also learn how to become to best sex they've ever had.
