#410: Parenting Tips and Confronting Bullies

https://goodmenproject.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/BeachDadDaughter_GMP.jpg

Good evening! Tonight, I ramble about:

  • How I recently screwed up as a Dad. It’s hard. Even when you have an easy baby like I do.
  • Black Mirror’s, “Nosedive,” and how that show actually gave me a little hope for a change!
  • Ask for what you really want in a dating profile; it worked for me
  • Thoughts on a man confronting his bully…35 years later.
  • The right way and wrong way to deal with life’s problems

And oh so much more. Thanks for listening!

#409: Black Mirror’s, “White Christmas,” and Social Media’s Future Dystopia

https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/black-mirror/images/1/19/0003_blackmirror_1.161.tif.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20161101214120

We’re back! Tonight, I spend most of the show going through the excellent Black Mirror special, “White Christmas,” and all that it entails, such as:

  • Our terrible collective addiction to social media
  • How jealousy is your gremlin leading you down a terrible path
  • How Artificial intelligence will either help us or hurt us; it’s our choice
  • The main character in the episode, if only wasn’t a sociopath, could have helped people instead of hurting them
  • And so much more.

Thank you for listening. Let’s keep this going!

PS: Here is a very interesting take on the episode:

Good evening! Tonight, I wax poetic about:

  • The joys of meditation and calming the heck down
  • Why struggle and setting goals is great for relationships and career as long as you detach from the outcome
  • Why finding someone to root for who is more successful than you is important
  • Don’t send dick picks, guys. Just don’t. Do that, you’re a loser.
  • Seriously. Don’t.

Enjoy!

First one of the new year and live from Almaza on Venice, I wax poetic about:

  • I re-examine the questions from the picture above, answer them cold, then listen to my answers from a year ago. It was a fascinating experiment
  • Why my son shouldn’t take advice from certain female friends of his
  • Why I won’t mock Amy Winehouse’s father for thinking his daughter is a ghost

I also answer the following questions:

  1. In one sentence, who are you?
  2. In one word, what do you live for?
  3. What is worth the pain
  4. What will you never give up on?
  5. What do you always try to avoid?
  6. What’s something you take for granted every day?
  7. What do you need most right now?
  8. What would you immediately do differently if you knew that no one would judge you
  9. What’s something nobody could ever steal from you?
  10. What would you like to forgive right now
  11. Happiness is not….
  12. What impact do you want to leave on the people you love?
  13. Life is too short to tolerate…
  14. What’s something that use to scare you, but no longer does?
  15. What do you want to remember forever?
  16. What do you always look forward to?
  17. What recently reminded you of how fast time flies?
  18. What’s something everyond should be able to say before they die

Enjoy!
