    You two were kind of adorable together. I Love Jordan even more now, insofar as that was still possible! ;-) I had never heard of this podcast before, but you definitely have a rare kind of spontaneity and uninhibited self-expression. :-) The compliments you gave to Jordan were soooo thoughtful and unique: "The stepdad who shows up and turns out to actually love our mother", and even better: "Timeless"! Waww! :-) And OMG the "smoke your salmon"-scene was priceless, I keep watching that again. That particular "Jordan-laugh" (in the salmon-scene) is really contagious, hahaha! :-) Thank You for this lovely interview!

    Survival of the fittest. It's weird to see this concept play out in how we interact with each-other; competiotion and false hierachies. It's weird to me because if we were to cooperate on a world-wide level we would have an infinitely larger chance of surviving here than what the current climate currently allows or the way things are done now can ever allow. If your goal is the betterment of yourself, foremost, then cooperation will always be your best bet. If survival is not your goal, then why are you still here?

    What a great discussion! Fucking hilarious, especially with the commercial break for the birddogs underwear in the middle. Had my doubts in the beginning. But the pairing was perfect. Just like one of the best drinking conversations we’ve all had with that, “intelligent” friend. Bravo to both.

  • RATM101101

    I think this is one of your best podcasts. Not only because it's Jordan Peterson and he's incredibly thought-provoking, but because you're a great person to have speak with him. Like you said in Rogan's podcast, he's very intellectual and that can be intimidating. So to have someone like you, who's not only hilarious but incredibly easy to relate to, was the perfect combination. I also don't mean that as "you're like everyone else", I just think one of the reasons you're so funny and easy to listen to is because most people can see a part of themselves when they hear you speak. So that in relation with the intellectual side of Jordan Peterson made for a great podcast. Keep doing what you're doing Theo, always excited to see what you do next.

    Theo does a great job grounding the conversation and making connections that allow Jordan to come up with great abstract introspective advice. All around a bloody good conversation. Whether you like Jordan or not, it’s great to see more and more smart conversations taking place and being appreciated by larger audiences. A return to intellectual debate and discussion in our culture could be part of a larger, more positive shift. It’s top lobster time, baby!

  • LearnToSwim

    I really enjoyed this podcast with Peterson, although I also enjoy his political discussions, I'm glad it was more on the psychological side, and I am excited as hell for the continuation of the biblical series, there's something so intriguing, so very encompassing about his particular breakdowns of the deeper meaning and human's history with Religion and Faith.
    I say this not as a rabid mindless fan taking to his every word like gospel, I say this as someone who doesn't always agree with him, who sees him as human, fallible, but ultimately like Theo Von put it, I see him as genuinely wanting good for people.
    I think it would also be extremely interesting to have a podcast with Peterson, Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying discussing relationships and sexuality from their psychological, biological and evolutionary perspectives.
    I grew up in a non religious household, nor was I ever really atheist either, but rather, open to it I would say and I feel like he's on to something, or continuing something that has been studied and philosophized about since the dawn of humankind. Something that words cannot fully describe, similar to experiences with psychedelics, words can only elude to whats beneath the experience. Fraught with unavoidable, inseparable darkness just the same, religion, psychedelics, human psyche. Maybe Peterson is another mind in the history of mankind that might move our understanding and search for meaning a little closer, even if it's just a cunt hair closer to what were looking for.

    Truths when spoken are felt and seems as if you've always known them. At 12:40 there is one of those truths: If YOU improve yourself and take action toward getting your life together it "measurably makes the world a better place"! THIS is why people are moved by JBP.

    Liked and subed, easily one of the best Peterson interviews i've ever seen and i've listened to probably 100s of hours of him talk. Your interview style was great and you really seemed to put him at ease, and even though I've heard many of his answers before almost all of them were explained more clearly and precisely here than I've ever heard from him before. It's probably a combination of that carnivore diet helping him not only look better but think clearer and also your peaceful and open interview style. Great work dude, Joe Rogan brought me here btw
