RESET AND THE RENAISSANCE | LaserHodl

January 25, 2022

LaserHodl is a husband, former software engineer, fantastically deep and broad thinker, Bitcoin citizen, and Sovereign Hopeful.

Many in the past couple years have attempted to explain what's going on in our world, but when I heard LaserHodl recently I said, I think this man has got it.

His thesis is that what we're experiencing has to do with money, how it's created, why that system is failing, and what might happen next. And buried within that picture is the answer for what we, as men, can do about it.

The answer is Bitcoin.

In our conversation, we discussed just one thing: Why Bitcoin is immediately, urgently relevant to you as a man.

That subject is so broad and far-reaching, it took us almost 5 hours to cover it in total.

We moved from Malthusian fear spells to global finance, geopolitics and get on zero, our personal histories and far beyond into the Christian religion, our shared faith. 

And Bitcoin touches on it all.

And in that, I encourage you to listen carefully to our discussion. It's vitally important that we all get this as men.

Because if we succeed in transforming money, there's nothing we can't do.

NOTE: For those unfamiliar with Bitcoin, and how it works, fear not. Shortly after this podcast is released I'll be doing a companion episode about the how and what of Bitcoin with Carlos Fenmann, the Bitcoin Coach.

FINDING REDEMPTION FROM TRASH WORLD | Fizeek Father

FINDING REDEMPTION FROM TRASH WORLD | Fizeek Father

January 20, 2022

The Fizeek Father is a father, art director, and Instagram content creator who's blazed a bright and influential trail through the men's space in just a short couple of months.

His clean designs, clear ideas, and sense of humor have brought a sense of levity to a field, which can often be full of serious ideas.

He's been on his own journey of transformation, from skinny fat bugman of trash world into Primal Handsome Nationalist of Gastonian Proportions.

In our conversation we discussed:

  • Who he was, the mistakes he made in his marriage, and why, and who he became as a result
  • Red pill truths, and which ones were hardest for each of us to swallow
  • His son and their relationship today, as the boy begins to grow into a man
  • The influence of the author Bronze Age Pervert on his writing, and the benefits and drawbacks of anonymity vs. being a creator with a real face and a name
  • And finally the power of humor in his writing, and how he harnesses it to make a creative impact in the saturated men's space.

My friends and I have shared so much of Fizeek King's content since his splash debut in November that I decided I had to find out who he was, including his story and philosophy, and I wasn't disappointed.

And I'd like to thank all of you for giving me the freedom to interview not just worldwide thought leaders, but newer creators making waves and making a difference for all of us.

RACE AND THE RENAISSANCE Ep. 3 w/ Jonathan West

RACE AND THE RENAISSANCE Ep. 3 w/ Jonathan West

December 23, 2021

With my podcast I wanted to create great conversations of shared meaning with men that I admire, who are making a difference as men.

By those three standards, I feel confident saying that this third episode of Race and the Renaissance with my friend Jonathan West might be my best episode of all time.

After four conversations so far, we’ve built rapport, a flow, and trust to talk about subjects I don't hear anyone else discussing in the men's space.

But with 2022 approaching, we need to.

In this conversation Jonathan and I discussed:

  • The Travis Scott Astroworld debacle and what it says about rap music today
  • My experiences living in Ujamaa, the black theme dorm at Stanford
  • The need to eliminate victim consciousness in the men's movement
  • The 90’s movie “Boyz N Tha Hood and what it says about ghetto culture and its place within the black community
  • And finally, the need for black people to reclaim their culture from the corporations packaging and selling it to them.

It’s not all heaviness, though. Like a proper barbershop experience, there's heartfelt laughter and real comedy between us too, which is my favorite part.

And in that I think we get a glimpse into what a real conversation looks like between men.

ARTHUR KWON LEE | Art Is a Transcendental Mirror

ARTHUR KWON LEE | Art Is a Transcendental Mirror

December 1, 2021

Arthur Kwon Lee is an internationally acclaimed fine artist who's exhibited in galleries and collections around the world and been named artist of the year by prestigious institutions.

He received early lessons of masculinity from his “rooftop Korean” pastor father that fed into his classically inspired paintings. But when Arthur took his perspectives off the canvas and onto social media, he discovered the hatred that our culture has for masculinity, as well as for boundaries, discipline, and order — all essential characteristics of great art.

That sent Arthur on a journey that's taken him from cancellation by the art scene into the Manosphere, where he’s made more than a just name for himself, but a home.

In our conversation we discussed:

  • His origins in the gallery world and how he developed his style
  • How masculinity generates respect of boundaries
  • How the arts world is just an arm of the state
  • Why more wealthy conservatives aren't funding engines of cultural production
  • An announcement of his upcoming year-long sabbatical
  • And finally a visual analysis of several of Arthur paintings through various stages of his career

It's been deeply inspiring to me to see the timeless values of religion, art, and personal style making their way further into the Renaissance. This is truly becoming a remarkable movement, one which every day I'm becoming prouder to be a part of.

Because aesthetics lift us up to the divine, and bring the divine down to Earth, which is everything I'm about, as I hope you can see, and which Arthur captures so vividly in his paintings.

KING DAVID | You Watch Porn Because You‘re Hurting

KING DAVID | You Watch Porn Because You‘re Hurting

November 18, 2021

King David is the world’s only Quit Porn Strategist, for a society that sorely needs it.

He’s a young man with a big dream: to burn down the $97 billion worldwide porn industry, one man at a time.

His story with porn dates to his teenage years and before. And though he's out of his teens now, every year more young men are still discovering the world of porn. David wants to help them find the exit.

In our conversation we discussed:

  • How he was full-on cancelled in 2020, and how that led to his personal transformation
  • The question of whether it's possible to be mad at God
  • The nature of inner gifts
  • The importance of not making your struggle your identity
  • And what it means to taste the hedonic treadmill

These are not easy conversations, nor are they meant to be. But we as men must have the courage to bring these conversations into the light.

RYAN MICHLER | Nobody Cares About You

RYAN MICHLER | Nobody Cares About You

October 5, 2021

# Thanks to all my listeners for an incredible first year! #

Ryan Michler is the host and founder of the Order of Man podcast and movement, and one of my greatest teachers in the Renaissance of Men.

From him I’ve learned about podcasting, consistency, and high achievement. But I’ve also found that he’s one of the deepest and most nuanced thinkers and doers about masculinity, from the jiu jitsu mats to canoe building, fatherhood and hunting.

In our conversation we discussed:

  • The importance of failure, and how nobody cares about you
  • A perspective on real hardship, and how not to take the luxury we live in for granted
  • How to enjoy the process over the goal
  • Relating to your emotions as a man, through actions instead of talking
  • The poverty of the zero f's mentality
  • Capitalism, and the subjective value of goods
  • Ryan's take on toxic masculinity
  • And finally the difference between man, masculinity, and manliness

Let’s not take for granted how incredible this moment is, that we get to learn about masculinity from men whose names will stand the test of time.

I’ve learned so much from Ryan, and will continue to. I know other men have as well.

And soon I think America will too.

DR. WARREN FARRELL | Integrity, Care, and Wisdom

DR. WARREN FARRELL | Integrity, Care, and Wisdom

September 29, 2021

Dr Warren Farrell is a political scientist, educator, and bestselling author of The Myth of Male Power and The Boy Crisis.

He defected from the heights of the feminist movement, the National Organization for Women in the 1970's, and at great personal cost he set out an adventure to share the truths that he knew about men, women, and families.

The Financial Times of London named him one of the world's top 100 thought leaders. His books are published in more than 50 countries and 19 languages. He's taught at the university level in five disciplines, and been interviewed multiple times by Oprah, Larry King, and most recently Dr. Jordan Peterson.

In our conversation we discussed:

  • His early days as a a feminist
  • How he develops his signature sound bites
  • A devastating challenge to the idea of "male privilege”
  • Couples communication
  • And how father involvement helps children, and especially boys, live longer

Despite his monumental contributions, some men I meet don't know of Warren or his work.  I think in some ways this is indicative of us losing touch with our roots.

But we all need to know where we come from. And it's possible none of us would be here without Warren

ANTHONY ”DREAM” JOHNSON | Defending the Honor of the Manosphere

ANTHONY ”DREAM” JOHNSON | Defending the Honor of the Manosphere

September 16, 2021

President Anthony “Dream” Johnson is the Host and Founder of the 21Convention and 21Studios.

Fifteen years ago at age 18 he started a meetup group, that became a conference, then a convention, then three conventions—some around the world—and now a summit.

Along the way he had the idea of filming the men who spoke at his events and releasing their talks free to the world. With that decision he surfaced the work of men that had given their lives to exploring vital aspects of masculinity.

He calls what he's built a watering hole. I think it's more like a fountain.

And in exchange for the gifts he’s given masculinity, femininity, and families, Anthony's taken something for himself: a tongue-in-cheek expression and reliable test of whether or not someone has a sense of humor, the title "President of the Manosphere."

I've always loved it. I think it suits him and his brash, outspoken style.

In our conversation we discussed,

  • The difference between drama and conflict following the debacle with YouTubers Fresh & Fit
  • Masculine honor individually and collectively
  • How easy it is to lose sight of the history that men in the Manosphere have together
  • Feminism, and the three genders that women see
  • Anthony's achievements with 21
  • And finally, a discussion of the philosophy of Objectivism

It's my hope in listening you'll get a perspective on the Manosphere, on leadership, and on what it truly takes for a man to build and defend something of enduring value.

TJ REEVES | What You Can Be You Must Be

TJ REEVES | What You Can Be You Must Be

September 9, 2021

TJ Reeves is a neuroscientist, athlete, psychedelic adventurer, and the founder of a startup called Acts Decentralized Real Estate.

His company aims to help large communities of people source, purchase, and develop packages of land, so that can begin moving off-grid and establish sovereignty.

Even the name Acts is inspired by the biblical book of Acts, about a community coming together around a shared spiritual pursuit. So naturally TJ and I had a lot to talk about.

In our conversation we discussed:

  • The dialogue between sovereignty, and arrete, or spiritual excellence
  • His self-initiation through psychedelics, and how they helped him escape from the mental prison of higher education
  • The ACTS business model, how it works, and what it provides
  • The reality of the transhumanist agenda, which he contributed to, and which you must be made aware of
  • His discovery of the manosphere, and his personal interaction with none other than the good doctor himself, Dr. Jordan Peterson 

Now, I don’t have a crystal ball, but it seems to me that TJ has found a need in a market. Will he succeed? The answer might be up to me and you.

But after talking with him for several hours, I think his pitch is worth a listen.

ALISON ARMSTRONG | Partnership Is a Triumph of Spirit

ALISON ARMSTRONG | Partnership Is a Triumph of Spirit

September 8, 2021

Alison Armstrong is an internationally acclaimed educator and expert on understanding men, women, and relationships. She’s also the bestselling author of “The Queen’s Code.”

Yes, the Renaissance of Men podcast is about men and masculinity, but in her book, Alison writes, “To know men is to love them.” To me, that earns her a seat at the table.

Because Alison has spent 30 years — yes, three decades — studying men, and has devoted her life to explaining men to women. Her goal is to improve human relationships so we can begin building heaven on Earth.

This ties into my goal to help create The Great Reconciliation, which marks the coming together of men and women in a space of mutual respect, understanding, and appreciation.

Because men and women are meant for each other.

 “The Queen's Code” paints a picture of what reconciliation might look like, not in some grand vision, but in the homes and everyday lives of eight characters. It is a book of wonders, full of sincere appreciation and honoring of men.

And my hope with this podcast is that you'll see, as I do, that in our world of shattered trust between men and women, Alison, the book's author, is worthy of your trust.

Give Alison just 17 minutes and I think she’ll earn your trust, like she has mine.

In our conversation we discussed:

  • Dependence, independence, and interdependence between men and women
  • Ultimatums, and what they mean to women vs. men
  • What women's independence is for, and how they can think about giving it up, and what they'll get in return
  • The difference between "non-starters" in new relationships vs. "not-forevers" in existing relationships
  • And finally, The Language of Heroes, which is a method for women to communicate their needs to men in a way which “speaks to the heart, soul and spirit of a man. It calls to him, rouses him, honors him."

-

And that, ultimately, is why I'm hosting a woman on the Renaissance of Men.

Because alongside Jack Donovan, Tanner Guzy, Warren Farrell, Ryan Michler, Robert Bly, Anthony Johnson, Douglas Gillette, David Deida, Elliot Hulse, Jordan Peterson, and so many of my greatest teachers about men and masculinity, there's one who's spoken from a perspective that none of them can.
