PODCAST: The Making Of A Modern Man

I decided to start a twice-monthly podcast called Kingmaker, where I focus on self-improvement and masculinity issues. In the first episode,  I discuss the importance of a man’s environment on shaping him because of how it acts as a mirror to his existence. I propose that modern Western civilization, with its ideas of individualism, materialism, and hedonism, have created a toxic environment that is hurting men more severely than had they been raised in a traditional society, using my own life path as a case study. I also discuss what we have gained and lost by moving from a traditional society to a modern one.

Does it help the podcast gain popularity if we subscribe via ITunes, versus watching it on youtube?

Maybe a bit more on iTunes, since that is the premier podcast directory.

Well constructed Roosh. Probably my favorite audio/video material yet. I can tell you prepared a solid outline for this, hope future pods are much like this!

Yup doing an outline beforehand is helpful.

Great idea Roosh, looking forward to listening soon. I just switched my podcast from Soundcloud to Libsyn for hosting. You may want to consider that if you think this will be a long term thing. Libsyn (or Blubrry) have much better stats and control over your podcast. A while back I remember Cernovich saying he would have started his podcast with Libsyn based on what he knows now about Soundcloud. Soundcloud is also possibly going to be sold to Spotify because it’s losing money, it may not be viable long-term. http://www.podfly.net/blog/2016/3/14/the-best-way-to-move-your-podcast-off-soundcloud

The RSS feed is on feedburner so changing podcast hosts won’t be a problem in the future. I’ve heard of Libsyn but I’ve used Soundcloud in the past and am satisfied with it. The price is also very competitive.

If you haven’t already seen it, you might find interesting the Adam Curtis / BBC documentary entitled The Power of Nightmares. It traces the parallel rises of radical Islam and American neoconservatism, noting their common origins as reactions to materialism, faithlessness and degeneracy, and their common aim of a return to traditional values.

Roosh, this guy http://culturewhiz.org/forum/topic/human-brain-not-intelligence already explained it all. Modern culture was designed by humans with virus/parasite/ fungus/bacteria altered minds. So of course if you are not affected, you feel like an alien.

The “epigenetics” stuff is important and you should read about it more and set some people straight. But “epigenetics” is a bit dumb because the point is really that “genetics” doesn’t work as commonly taught.

A lot of right-ish people for the past 50 years have been setting themselves up for embarrassment by insisting genes for everything will be discovered. Genes for IQ, genes for criminality, genes for diseases. Many billions have been spent since the early 90s on genomics and sequencing but the approach simply hasn’t worked. And it won’t work. Literally billions of dollars spent in the hopes of profitable drugs and therapies and we have not a single example.

The issue is that the straightforward gene model of disease and IQ and health and ability doesn’t work. Darwin never described such a thing. Darwin thought there were obvious lifestyle factors that drove inheritance, i.e. how you lived your life could influence your kids. This has been repeatedly proven with animal experiments: kids of mice taught to run mazes run mazes faster, it’s clearly not DNA. But this all got blown away in the cold war. We got a stifling “Russian Lysenkoism” vs “DNA Heritability” mess of nonsense for the combination of reasons that opposing the Russians was important and also American racists wanted proof they were inherently superior to blacks. Ray Peat writes easily readable stuff about this interesting subject.

I guess the immediate political ramifications of realizing DNA is not very important across multiple generations is approximately zero. But it’s still funny to see people make such stupid arguments on the subject, insisting that documented IQ genes are around the corner.

Great sound quality. As a graphic designer, I would just change the cover.
