Welcome to The Bla Bla Bunker, a podcast featuring interviews with regular people who have extraordinary stories to tell.

The host, Almar Hilmarsson, is one of them. In 25 years he’s gone from Icelandic lawyer and airline CEO to tattooed, bearded meat enthusiast with a startup in Central Europe. On the way, he’s made plenty of stops, and cultivated a habit of running into interesting people and asking them interesting questions.

Nothing is off limits in the Bla Bla Bunker, and Almar may ask questions that most people wouldn’t dare to ask.

    Is There Some Viking Mentality In Iceland? - Ranting in the Car

    Is There Some Viking Mentality In Iceland? - Ranting in the Car

    Viking culture is massively popular and so is Viking history. I got asked if there is any Icelandic Viking mentality today? It made me think of the Vikings that discovered Iceland and what effect Viking lifestyle has had on our modern day culture. Are Vikings responsible for Scandinavian gender equality? Do Icelanders not plan ahead as a cultural inheritance from the Vikings?

    EP70 American dreams, Open Relationship and Racial Stereotypes - Roc (Rahmaan Mwongozi)

    EP70 American dreams, Open Relationship and Racial Stereotypes - Roc (Rahmaan Mwongozi)

    Roc was planning a murder when he was young, he considers himself lucky that they did not have a gun in the household....the future had other plans for Roc.

    Roc is a systems analyst who has worked with Fortune 500 corporations such as Enron, AT&T and Pfizer as well as being the host of the ”Talking $*** Rahmaan Mwongozi” podcast.

    Roc’s problem-solving and “no excuses” mindset enabled him to avoid the trappings of his East Oakland neighborhood, where poverty, physical abuse of a step father, gangs, violence, and drugs took many down the rabbit hole of despair. Keeping his distance and planning his escape, Roc paid attention to where the power and resources lay and went after them.

    He has systematically avoided the trappings of the American dream, racial stereotyping as well as traditional ideas of romantic relationships.

    We discussed all things life, America, How important Bill Cosby was, polyamory, capitalism, abuse, murder plans and his book
