    You apparently sent this out before syndicating it. I went to my pod player and can only see through episode #13

    This was a great addition to the paper. I learned a lot, I didn’t know how deep the philosophy was in the military. I thought it was mostly academics. Michael could bring in more and different types of people to the stoic fold.
    I really liked the storytelling aspect of this and would like to listen to these two discuss stoicism more often.
    Excellent interview Adam.

  3. Terrance Black says:

    That was a fascinating conversation. The discussion on the degradation of ethics in the U.S. is important for all Americans and others around the world. The United States used to stand for freedom and equality. There really isn’t another country that can step in and take the lead in this. It takes strength and honor.
    You two should do more podcasts.

    Well done. I went and looked up the Ring of Gyges because of it. A fascinating link to the covert operations. Is that where the Lord of the Rings came from?
    This is a discussion worth listening to. The need for wisdom and the embracing of science has never been more important. The need for us to hold ethics up as something as important as any other topic. I agree humanity is going to face ever-increasing challenges. Whether we make it through them or not is going to largely depend on whether we trust one another.
