Emery's Devin Shelton joins me on this episode to premiere the full song "Everything That She Offered Me." Dave and I already did a song-writing break down for the drums and guitar, and now Devin explains how Toby and him took what we wrote and put vocals to it. We also see what some of you did with it and announce a winner of the song contest. Thank you to everyone who participated!

What Can We Do with Blockchain? (Ep 127)

A good friend connected me with Alex Linebrink, who is the CEO of PassageX, a secondary ticketing venue that utilizes blockchain technology to promote industry accountability and transparency. It's exciting to hear about other uses of the system and get a glimpse at the tip of the iceberg of what can be done in the future with such a powerful tool as blockchain.

Peer Pleasure + Break it Down (Ep 126)

Dewey Halpaus caught me outside a venue in Portland for an interview on the Peer Pleasure podcast. He has a great way of interviewing people, so I wanted to share it with you all here as well! Among many things, we talk about the new Emery album, and how in the world I became a Christian with the way my brain works.

Pedals with Matt Hoopes of Relient K (Ep 125)

Being a band guy on the road, gear heads tend to find each other. For me, Matt Hoopes of Relient K is always on the top of my list for guys I like to talk about pedals with. Now he's creating his own pedals, so we go in-depth about the technical aspects of what distortion is and the components inside pedals.

Resilience with Author Steven Southwick (Ep 124)

Steven Southwick is a professor at Yale University of Psychiatry, PTSD, and Resilience. He is also the author of "Resilience: The Science of Mastering Life's Greatest Challenges," which I was eager to talk with him about, since we seems to share similar philosophies on the power of the mind effecting the body.

Winnie M Li's "Dark Chapter" (Ep 122)

I was interested in talking with Winnie Li after hearing about her unique perspective and outlook on live after surviving a violent rape while traveling overseas. Most people try to avoid thinking about and sympathizing with their aggressors, but Winnie wrote a book about her experience and humanized him trying to understand his perspective.

James Lindsay on Critical Theory, Academia, and the Jordan Peterson Phenomenon (Ep 112)

James holds degrees in physics and mathematics, including a doctorate in the latter, and works primarily as a voice calling for honest reflection upon, and thus change in, our religious and cultural landscape.

We discuss the almost religious behavior of the movement behind Jordan Peterson as well as the behavior of activism on the left, much of which seems to be underpinned by Critical Theorists and academia.
