As kids, we're like little sponges blindly copying culture from the people around us. The cultures into which we were all born evolved to fit very old agricultural environments. Each contains timeless wisdom about human affairs but none of them is ideally suited to navigating the ever-changing environment in which we find ourselves.

The goal of Mixed Mental Arts is to steal the best cultural software from everywhere and apply the core principle of Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do "Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own." Welcome to the dojo! We're excited to learn from you.

Great convos

Top 3 podcasts. Maybe my favorite tbh. They basically talk to authors of intellectual books amd have great dialogue coming from different perspectives. :)

More Please!!!

I’ve been a fan in all incarnations of this podcast so whether or not it goes back to the Bryan Callen show or morphs into something else, I just want more regular content. It’s the best!!!!

Thoughtful clothing

The show is lively and thought provoking, and that’s all you can expect from any media.

One of the hosts plays Coach Miller on the Goldbergs, and I can’t get those little blue shorts out of my head during the show, but somehow that makes it better.

I’m not sure what that says about me, but to be honest it’s a great show worth a listen.
