@JP That's how I felt listening to him with Mad Fientist. He discusses the idea of buying back time with money in that interview, too.

Having nothing to do with ERE at all, I really liked the film Go Fast Go North about a 750 mile boat race to Alaska. I don't know anything about sailing but I know there are a few sailing enthusiasts here. It is on Prime right now. The trailer: https://vimeo.com/192747836.

A different story about the same race is told on this podcast for those that prefer audio: https://dirtbagdiaries.com/over-the-line/.

This particular episode of this podcast touched on a lot of subjects we discuss here: status, signaling, how rich people spend vs how poor people spend, and more. The speaker and interviewer are taking a very different point of view than ERE is, but I found food for thought here.

How Whole Foods, yoga, and NPR became the hallmarks of the modern elite

The ebook "On Tyranny".

It is chilling how sheep like people can be and the terror of crowds. This forum is for the most part free thinkers and those wishing to buck 'orders' so to say. Some of the examples are just... wow. I must admit I was inspired to post it here by the cards versus cash discussion.

I got it from my local library. Less than 2 hours.

Even on Amazon it is dang cheap for an audio book.

Real Vision is doing a two-week focus on retirement. The first video is free on youtube. I enjoyed the whole thing but he gets into specifics and more ERE-related stuff after 30 minutes or so.

You can get a trial subscription for $1 if you want to watch the whole series (you can cancel any time after that). Today's video was an interview with Neil Howe (not his best but still interesting).

Bret Weinstein and his wife Heather Heying, both biology PhDs, are doing a new casual podcast where they discuss all things COVID. They get into a lot of detail (which I appreciate) on things like masks, testing options, and the future course of the virus.

The first episode is a little glitchy as they'd just set up their home studio. I expect it to get more polished as we go.

episode one: https://youtu.be/ym-WGOq96G0

Joe Rogan Experience #1309 - Naval Ravikant is a good listen.

AOM has a good podcast up today with Vic Verdier. It's kind of an advanced discussion of Move your DNA, geared towards older men but (IMO) useful for everyone. He also has an interesting blog.

Funny, I listened to that on my way in to work this morning and was thinking it'd be a good candidate for posting here. Good stuff about halfway through talking about the importance of reducing stress, and that a good way to do that is to simplify your life via downsizing and getting rid of stuff you don't use regularly (especially if you can rent it when you do need it), and consuming less and spending less time at work--basically the ERE playbook. The podcast had me laughing out loud as he was talking about trying to explain what a treadmill is to our distant ancestors. And I gave myself a virtual check mark/pat on the back as he was talking about getting your cardio by just going outside in the sunshine every day or whatever and going for a walk, as I was listening to the podcast while walking to work with my backpack enjoying the sunshine.

I also appreciated the interviewer's point about the more stuff you have, the more stuff you have to take care of--either by yourself or by managing others to take care of it; all of which tends to add a lot of unnecessary stress.

Definitely geared toward older men (I'm a 40+ male myself), but just a lot of what should be common sense that resonated well with ERE.

Just as an aside, and not to derail this thread/topic, I wonder if others (either on this forum or in the media) have observed an emergence of cultural commentators or influences or whatever, mostly speaking to men, specifically from Oklahoma and West/North Texas. I don't have any particular connection to that region, apart from being a fan of Nanci Griffith, Miranda Lambert, and the Turnpike Troubadors; but my podcast subscriptions and regularly visited blogs are almost entirely dominated by folks with connections there--e.g., Brett McKay from AOM; Scott Hambrick from OnlineGreatBooks.com (and its podcast, and the sister Music and Ideas and Barbell Logic podcasts), the Catholic Gentleman podcast, Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength website and podcast, and I'm sure there are others. This probably just reflects me and my own interests and (in part) political leanings, but it does seem like there is a disproportionate level of a certain kind of content generation coming from that part of the country. It's also likely relevant that these guys all know each other and seem to support one another's efforts.
