Everyone is a philosopher and everyone has an interesting story to tell, you just have to know how to ask. I find that I am surrounded by some of the most interesting people in the world. They are our neighbors, friends, and relatives and they help shape who we are. Some conversations are serious, some are deep, and some are silly... Enjoy :)

Hans Fex is a successful entrepreneur and the creator of the fascinating Mini-Museum (www.minimuseum.com). What is a mini-museum? In a nutshell, it is a collection of rare and interesting artifacts, sliced and diced into tiny specimens and sealed in a small epoxy display case. If you’re a history buff or fascinated by artifacts, this item is right up your alley. I own one myself and love to watch my friends and family gaze at the collection of specimens which included a small piece of...

WWI #76 LIVE Halloween Ghost Hunt at Revival 1869 in Clayton, NC - PART 1

10/27/2017

On October 16, 2017, I invited paranormal investigator John Mathis and renowned psychic Vincent Genna to explore the possible sources of unexplained events taking place at Revival 1869, a craft cocktail bar located at the center of Clayton, NC. As a self-proclaimed skeptic-at-heart, I wanted a chance to see these events through the eyes of true believers and approach the investigation with an open mind about the possibility that some things exist beyond our five senses. The Wait What If...

WWI #74 Deep discussions with Elder from the YouTube channel “The Open Debate”

This is the final installment of my First Amendment series where I interviewed a number of guests (liberal and conservative) who share the common passion of “freedom” from oppression via de facto censorship. From his patreon site: As many of you are aware YouTube has been getting quite strict around what they consider “sensitive” content and as a result I have decided to start a Patreon. I make videos focusing on the social injustices and racial hypocrisy we are forced to deal with...

WWI #73 Daniel Duerst, creator of YouTube Channel “Duerst the Wuerst”

Daniel Duerst is the creator of “Duerst the Wuerst” YouTube channel. He describes himself as “I am a center left, liberalish guy who goes around filming political protests, live bands, and other crazy, random, weird occurrences.” We live in a strange era where the average person with a cell phone can become a citizen journalist just by the act of live streaming political events. This is great in that we can watch events unfold in real time without the bias so often interjected by the big...

WWI #71 - Based in LA with Jeffrey Mark Klein and Tim Stabers

8/18/2017
More
Based in LA is a media company focused on comedy, culture and politics. Their modis operandi is to counter the predominantly leftist culture of Hollywood and offer an alternate but equally valid view of politics, society and culture. Based in LA captures their audiences attention by embedding themselves within the often chaotic scenes of contemporary activism. We’ve seen the state of political discourse decay into violent stifling of opinion resulting in stark polarization of political...

Universal Basic Income (UBI) is a somewhat controversial subject in a culture of capitalistic competition but if you’ve been paying attention to technology and the presence of automation, you should realize that human labor will soon be antiquated and jobs across the spectrum of trades will be lost. How will you provide for your family when artificial intelligent machines force you into retirement? If you don’t believe this is a reality, then you’ll need to get out from under that rock and...

I love waxing philosophical about what our lives will be like in the near (very near) future. “How near” you ask? Ray Kurzweil believes we’ll have microscopic robots in our brains in 13 years. Too far fetched? He’s got an 86% accuracy rate in predicting future technology and the number goes higher if you consider sometimes he is just a few years off. Topics discussed: Genetically modified babies; Robot love; Would art made by a computer still be art without the human emotion put into it?...
