Intellect!

Intelligent, thoughtful, enlightening conversation in our time of absurdity.

The Smartest Dropout

Listening to a 23 year old who has already acquired wisdom was enjoyable.

I would like to hear the question asked to most of your guests; “what do you make of January 6th, the violence, the cover-ups, the FBI arrests, and variety of sentences given?”

East Coast Cowgirl ,

Mr Beeper

When you need a good genuine laugh and some inspiration —I highly recommend the episode that includes an interview with Mike’s mom. #249 I believe. She’s promoting a new book that describes her experience of redirection throughout her writing career. This episode possibly invites an opportunity for a sequel… this is because Mike asks his mom about what his purpose is and she says that he is an entertainer. Mike is curious about what the systematic steps of his career path looks like as he serves his purpose so listeners like me are wondering what he’s imagining. Maybe he will elaborate on his direction in a future podcast.
