8/12/2018
More
Savana Steel joins me in the studio to discuss biohacking and its effect on our health. Is biohacking a “hack” term or does it still have meaning today? Do blue blocking lenses help with sleep?

Celebrating 100 Episodes with John Taylor, Mike Stojic and Maleah Christie, Savanna Steele and John Mathis (and a ghost)

7/26/2018
More
Past guests of the WWI Podcast met at Mike and Maleah’s Revival 1869 and “revived” the original show concept and gathered for whiskey and pondering life’s big questions. Typically, this means we end up talking about psychedelics, human consciousness, whether or not you should have a plan to fight (kill) your way out of every situation, ghosts, Voice of God Technology, and…. I think that covers it! Please check out John Taylors Twisted Podcast for everything True Crime. Like nude women?...

Today’s episode, I talk with Bonnie “Queen B” Mann former boxing world champion and USMC Hall Boxing Hall of Fame inductee. A little over 10 years ago, I found myself separated from my military family and desperately seeking a group with the same level of connection I had experienced with my peers in the service. I found a new family in a small gym outside Raleigh, NC within a group of local boxers, MMA fighters, and Jui Jitsu fighters. Among them was Bonnie Mann. I have been wanting to...

#93 - Sheri Ray from A&E’s “60 Days In” recounts her journey from Corrections Officer to inmate and back.

6/24/2018
More
Sheri Ray’s husband was being cast for A&E’s popular reality drama “60 Days In’ when the producers offered her a spot in the show instead. Before she knew it, she was placed as an undercover inmate in Indiana’s Clark County Jail. Sheri was a great interview and I had a lot of fun talking about how she managed to switch out of the role as a corrections officer and fit in with the inmates. We discuss everything from the role of women in law enforcement to adjusting back into family life...

6/10/2018
More
My friend James Barrat returns to the WWI Podcast to give us an update on his outlook for the future of Artificial Intelligence. Has his typical technological pessimism eased since publishing his book “Our Final Invention” back in 2013 or has AI taken a turn for the worse? James tells a cautionary tale about AI and rightly so. Although we may not face kill-bots from the future, what’s more concerning are the nefarious actions of the humans behind the technology. We’ve already seen our...

#90: Paul Adams and “What does it mean to be a good person?” A little philosophizing on the back porch tonight!

5/13/2018
More
Paul Adams is a friend and neighbor who is ever willing to share his philosophical views on life. He came over tonight to help my understanding of what it means to be a good person. I have trouble reconciling the fact that so many people call themselves “good” yet we waste so many resources that could be utilized to ease the suffering of other humans. We don’t exactly see eye to eye on every issue but I appreciate his openness and careful contemplation with every idea placed before...

WWI #88: What if plants could heal? Master Shaman Victoria Carella

4/14/2018

Ms. Victoria Carella spent some time with me discussing an ancient technique of healing through Shamanism. As a practitioner of modern medicine, I am fascinated by ancient methods of healing and learning about their role in the modern world. Victoria explains how she uses cannabis as a medicinal “teacher” and the controversy over its federal legality. As such, I have to put a disclaimer on this episode: I do not condone or recommend that individuals self-medicate with plants for medical...

#87 What if you were locked up in jail but innocent? Zac Baker from A&E’s “60 Days In”

3/30/2018
More
If there was the prototypical guest for the Wait What If Podcast, Zac Baker would fit the bill. To say he lives “a life less ordinary” would be an understatement. What brought Zac to the show was his involvement in an A&E reality show in which individuals voluntarily locked themselves up in jail to help better understand the system and hopefully fix any problems experienced first hand from an inmate’s perspective. To me, this sounds like a nightmare! To Zac, it was a walk in the park. He...

WWI #82 Dr. Joseph Uscinski and Conspiracy Theories

1/19/2018

Conspiracy theories often conjure up the image of shadowy characters running the show behind the curtain. Cross the system and the system will take you out. This idea makes for a great John Grisham novel but rarely represents reality. My guest tonight is an expert of conspiracy theories and how they become a part of our culture. Do conspiracy theories expose nefarious plots to undermine the system or simply a way to address political shortcomings and help quell the feeling of...
