12 episodes

The purpose of this podcast: there are a lot of problems in the world, there are a lot of exciting things, and people are looking for answers–no, people are looking for saviors…so we are going to discuss, we are going to talk in detail, and almost certainly be wrong on a lot of it, but you will be entertained, you will feel better, and if anything you will feel like you’ve been saved!



This is Saviors of the Metaverse. The podcast that saves and hopefully entertains. With Jared and Eric. Or is it Eric and Jared?



What we do know is this podcast is unscripted.



Think freestyle, raw, no filter…unscripted. Yeah, that’s it. That sounds like some Saviors of the Metaverse!



Featuring: Jared Nichols and Eric Kasimov

    SOM12 | Economic Navel-Gazing + The Kia Challenge on TikTok Is a Real Problem

    Economic Navel Gazing! What is that? Self-indulgent or excessive contemplation of oneself or a single issue, at the expense of a wider view (source: Google, Oxford Languages). If that doesn’t sound like what is going on with our economy…

    Thank goodness you are here for some saving! In this episode, we go virtual. Yeah, that’s right. COVID-19 and the flu have hit us a bit this fall, but we had to do it–record an episode that is. But being remote couldn’t stop us. While we’d rather be face-to-face, we accept that sometimes the metaverse won’t allow for that. So we upgraded our virtual studio and we went…virtual.

    Saviors of the Metaverse, the podcast that saves and hopefully entertains, is now a standalone podcast. No, we don’t mean standing at the corner waiting for a bus that will never come. We mean standalone as this podcast has its own real estate on Apple and Spotify and the like. SOM (short for Saviors of the Metaverse) is part of the KazSource Podcast Network. So we’re not totally alone! Although Jared is terrified of loneliness, so to play it safe, give this podcast a listen.

    We’re on to the 12th episode of SOM (again, short for Saviors of the Metaverse). And we’re talking ridiculous TikTok trends, navel-gazing, blue check marks, and all sorts of more!

    SOM11 | The Zucks Episode + dd Peckers, Recency Bias

    SOM11 | The Zucks Episode + dd Peckers, Recency Bias

    The Mark Zuckerberg episode. Sounds ridiculous. Is it?

    Is the next phone call you receive the most important phone call? Is that update in your news feed life-changing? Is the new book the best book? That’s more than likely a no for all three questions, yet, here we are asking the Saviors for some saving. We got you!

    In this Saviors of the Metaverse podcast, we talk about many topics including Jared and Zucks sitting down for dinner and trying to hash it out (it didn’t go well). We also talk about helping you stay away from recency bias. You could say a recency bias is about remembering the last thing you heard to be the truth or the most important thing. It also applies to focusing on the latest bit of information (of which there is a lot) being the most important. Avoid that! Your productivity, your mind, and your well-being will thank you. And then you can thank the saviors, but we will not accept–as we are merely here to save. And also, talk about dd Peckers. Do you know what dd Peckers is? You will soon. Just hit play on this 11th installment of  Saviors of the Metaverse!

    We’re on to the 11th episode of SOM (again, short for Saviors of the Metaverse). And we’re mad!! Why? We don’t know. So let’s talk about it and create some outrage!
