    Opinions, Cruelty, & The Paradox of Tolerance - Episode 53

    Opinions, Cruelty, & The Paradox of Tolerance - Episode 53

    Everyone has the right to their opinion, and they're all equal....right? What if someone's opinion allows them to harm another person? Should such an opinion be tolerated? You probably IMMEDIATELY thought, "hell no!". What if I told you that we have been and are being conditioned to tolerate such opinions in society.

    But how? Why? To what end? That -- and more -- what we discuss in this episode

    Gnostic Cosmology & Alternative Thought with The Juan - Episode 52

    Gnostic Cosmology & Alternative Thought with The Juan - Episode 52

    Multiple dimensions of existence, King Solomon's magic, Divine Feminine, the Law of Attraction and ooooohhh so many more topics were purposefully left out of what we now call the Christian Bible. But why?

    The study of such extra-canonical works is called Gnosticism. The Gnostics and the excluded "false" teachings they studied were deemed heretics by the early Christian church. But why? What harm can asking a few questions be? Sound familiar?

    Take the first step off the ledge into the deep dive that is Gnostic Cosmology with Jeffrey and first time guest, The Juan from "The Juan on Juan Podcast". Such a great conversation....and the first of many!

    Tip: Ya might wanna grab a pen and paper, because they're gonna be some shit you wanna write down. ;-)

    Equality vs Equity...With All Things Being Equal - Episode 51

    Equality vs Equity...With All Things Being Equal - Episode 51

    Equality. Equity. What do these words mean in a social context? That's a question we need to be able to answer considering how hotly they're being thrown around our society, don't ya think? Are we massively oversimplifying the conversation? Is it really a "black and white" issue or is it full of many subtle shades of gray? These are the questions we begin discussing in this episode.

    What do you think about the issue? How would you answer some of these questions? We'd love to hear your thoughts and maybe even have ya on the podcast.

    Emotional Triggers, Personality Types, & The Lost Art of Conflict Resolution - Episode 50

    Emotional Triggers, Personality Types, & The Lost Art of Conflict Resolution - Episode 50

    Everyone has triggers. Everyone has a definitive personality type. Almost no one seems to be able to resolve conflicts in a healthy way. In this episode we work through an actual real life conflict in almost real time.

    It's amazing how interconnected your personality type and emotional triggers are when it comes to the way you approach and, hopefully, resolve conflict....which is a lost art (or is it a skill?) in today's society.

    What's your personality type? What are some of your emotional triggers? Have you ever actually explored those things about yourself?

    Double, Double Toil & Trouble: Stirring the Double Standard Pot - Episode 49

    Double, Double Toil & Trouble: Stirring the Double Standard Pot - Episode 49

    Have you ever noticed how many double standards abound in our society? In this episode we discuss how (or is it why?) they exist, how they endure, and even dissect a few including abortion, discrimination, and gender identification, and medical mandates.

    We also discuss a surprisingly little-known fact about the brain that may actually account (or at least play a role) in such a cultural phenomenon. So pack. your bags and let's go on a journey. Won't you be my neighbor?

H6 Family ,

Great find

Love the banter between the hosts and how they aren’t afraid to say what everyone is thinking.

Michaela Renee Johnson ,

Hilarious and raw

These two are epic.

NoOneIsComing ,

Awesome!!

This is the straight-shooting, real world podcast for the everyman! Current and relevant topics hashed with a super mix of irreverence, salient opinion and whiskey! Can’t stop listening-if you’re new to FDS, totes bingeworthy! Jeff might be my ideological man crush 😂
