Episode 026: Michael Hinden on Botany, Buds, and Education

April 22, 2017

Michael Hinden took a chance and moved out to California during the medical marijuana gold rush. He sought after his passion for botany and plants and left behind a job in his father's law firm. 

Michael and his company Private Stock Veganics are in a pursuit to provide the highest grade cannabis-derived from truly natural and organic techniques. He's made a brand that's respected for its quality above all else. They are on a mission in order to bring the marijuana industry back to a more natural approach to raising their plants. 

This episode isn't just about plants. The boys cover an array of topics from education, technologies, medicine, mimicking aspects of homo sapiens, as well how to return to cohesion between humans and animals.

Looking for another show about the marijuana business or drug politics? We had a conversation with Danny Perdeck (CEO of Green Roads World) talking the growing CBD and Marijuana industries.

Episode 025: Jared Firestone - Sacrifice

April 18, 2017

Jared Firestone,@jfireskeleton, is an ex-collegiate track athlete attempting to break into the ranks of the U.S. Skeleton and Bobsled teams.  He recently just returned from the U.S. Nationals and is currently preparing for training sessions with the Elite Development Group in Latvia and Norway.

 

Jared ran track at Tulane and after college, he wasn't willing to give up on his athletic dreams. After watching skeleton one T.V. one day, he took a leap of faith to jump-start his career. 

 

As with many of our guests, Jared has had to show extreme determination, risk, and sacrifice to make the impossible - possible. He has had to forgo his law career and has had difficulty finding a stable job that will support him while he trains. And beyond the potential for failure, skeleton is a dangerous sport. To Jared, the risk is worth the reward.

 

This episode explores the psyche of a strong-willed and determined young man not willing to accept mediocrity. We also talk skeleton training techniques, the potential of athletes as influencers in the 21st century, and intangibles of success. 

 

Looking for another show about athletics? Our conversation with Wes Byrum – Life After Sports, explores difficulties athletes have when they are finished.

Episode 021: Tatum Skipper - How to be a Boss Ass Bitch and Travel the World

March 14, 2017

Tatum Skipper @bonvoyage_bitches is a travel blogger known for her unique and sassy writing style that utilizes offensive language, brutal honesty, and a perspective opposing what most in her industry blog about. This is why she is crushing it.

 
Hailing from Atlanta, Ga. She has won a trip to the French Alps, sky dove in Dubai, lived lavishly through Europe and just recently started building out her RV. She's been queened as a "Professional Partier" and shows people that you can travel the world however you want. 
 
There is something uniquely refreshing about someone willing to forgo the facade of perfection while traveling to bring you the no bullshit version. Let's face it, no trip on the road goes as planned. So Tatum is building her BonVoyage Bitches brand through honesty and leaving bad reviews (just kidding - but she will blog about it). 

 
This episode becomes a montage on how to be different in the travel world. We discover how she uses blogging groups and optimization to grow her following and her biggest trick (Hint Hint: Pinterest). What a wild adventure this really was. 
 
 
You can find Tatum's blog at bonvoyagebitches.com where she writes about places that don't suck and has a segment we love called The Confessional; where you can read about and share crazy, embarrassing, disgusting and just down right dirty horror stories that have happened while traveling.
 
Travel junkie or just plain frugal? One of our most popular episodes was with Kevin Wong - The Invincible Budget - in which he provides tips and tricks on traveling the world for $25/day.

Episode 018 : Joe Skipper - Crickets and Other Alternative Protein Sources

February 21, 2017
Sustainability. Sustainability. Sustainability. 
 
It's a topic that is on the tip of many tongues and debated
across an array of industries, especially on buses.
 
The real question, though, one that we often forget to ask. 
What can I personally do, engender a sustainable planet?
 
This week's guest Joseph Skipper - who also goes by the nickname
Cricket Guy - literally quit his job one day to farm Crickets.
His reasoning? A deep inner yearning to farm coupled with a 
desire to create a viable impact on our planet. He is now owner of Seginus Farms @seginusfarms, first urban cricket farm in Florida devoted exclusively to raising human-grade entomological products
 
Joe recognized that crickets are a sustainable and healthy
source of protein just now starting to be eaten in
The United States. Outside of the U.S. crickets are eaten by billions of people
as both a major source of protein and a delicacy. He wants
to capitalize on a potentially huge growing market while also creating
a positive environmental impact.
 
In this episode, we talk all things bugs. Heck, we even eat
a few on air. Joe talks insect eating regulations, their 
diet, and his experience at the Insect Eating Convention
in Detroit. Among other things - this conversation obviously
becomes a great one about nutritional hacking. 
 
You can find out more @seginusfarms and you can also purchase
the prized Moringa Cricket Power Mix (which we love and use) to make Cricket Brownies.
 
Here is a good article to learn about the power of cricket protein or visit Grubbly Farms the company from Forbes 30 under 30 positively 
impacting the chicken feed industry.
 
Since we are on a role here with alternative nutrition and medicine.
Our most recent conversation with Danny Perdeck, Owner of Green Roads
World explores how CBD oil provides health hacks.

Episode 010: Kevin Wong - The Invincible Travel Budget

December 12, 2016

Kevin Wong aka Kwongeroo (more on that nickname in the show) is a 26 year old world traveler from Canada known for his ability to globe trot on a $25USD per day budget. 

 

His keen interest in traversing the world in the cheapest and most fulfilling way possible has unlocked his ability to optimize travel at all levels. Kevin can tell you the most cost effective (and savory) places to eat when you step into a new and foreign place and how to save money on transportation. 

 

His current trip is 20 months long and spans over 50 countries. This episode becomes an insightful conversation about the mission to break the 9-5 job barrier and travel near forever. We make the intrinsic fear on the road something tangible for discussion, whilst breaking down the psychosis of travel anxiety. 

 

Highlights from this episode include how American politics are viewed outside of the U.S. (Spoiler Alert: they care a lot more than we do) including the ripple affect abroad, Kevin's trip to see the Chernobyl Metal Dome, and tips and travel tricks for the newly adjusted backpacker. 

Chernobyl Dome

Episode 009: Logic For Dinner with Aakash

December 7, 2016
Aakash is somewhat of an anomoly. He dropped out of a Statistics PH.D at Harvard to become a trader. Soon after, despite wild success, he realized that community wasn't for him (we explore this on the show). Since then he has worked for start-ups optimizing online ads and is currently studying music at the Pyramind Music Production School in San Fransisco. 
 
 
Aakash is an optimizer to the fullest extent. He applies mathmatical inference to even the most mundane of life's decisions. He has hacked loopholes for free food delivery services, near free cell phone costs, and has access to the lowest feasible flight costs to travel the world. 
 
 
His unyielding passion for music breaks the barrier between emotion and math. Afterall, music is at its core, intervals, patterns and tone to create harmony.  
 
 
On "Logic for Dinner" we explore some of his past experiences that have made him who he is today. From living in the Amazon with Brazilian nut foraging tribes to transitioning from Trading into Music, together we explore his reasoning for these decisions. He also schools us on some music insight (we thought we knew a litte something) and touches the taboo topic of Universal Basic Income. And, with his help, Brandon and Daniel discover why they even started a podcast to begin with. 
 
 
Please enjoy this episode with such an articulate speaker.
