      Theo should do more interviews with psychologists! His comedy and familiarity with mental health along with the expertise from the doctors is something new and fresh... Kind of like the comedians that deliver the news. It makes mental health more appealing if you can laugh about it a little.

      Theo Von Clips Theo, I have been listening to Jordan Peterson for a couple years now on different platforms (JRE, Jordan’s TheXvid, variety of podcasts) and I your conversation with him ranks at the top. Thank you for accurately engaging with him and asking questions to help us better understand how Prof. Peterson sees our world. Truly felt like I was sitting in the room with you gents. Definitely would be great to have him on again!

    Cool podcast Theo. I’m from a small town next to your’s, and same age. When you talked about how racism has declined since we were coming up, I feel like I’ve been saying that for a while, especially where I’m from in Louisiana. Keep up the good work bro, a lot of people are listening.

    Unbelievable! I am a graphic artist. EVERY place I've worked I decorated my workspace or office in such a way that I could be surrounded with things that created a serene and beautiful atmosphere. My theory was that if it were a calm pretty atmosphere, it would not only put me in the mindset I needed to be to create the things I had to for the job, but also to keep my own stress level down when having to work under pressure and deadlines. In a way, it was also an advertisement of my creativity which is what I was hired to do in the first place.... That being said, for 20 years, every place I went and did that, you wouldn't believe how many people reacted in a horrible way towards me. It created SUCH and uproar and backlash. Hearing Jordan explain that not only cleaning up your room (office or cube) causes resistance, but making it beautiful will actually terrify people and shine the light on all that's ugly. I finally got an explanation for all the suffering I encountered. I could never figure it out. My husband always said it was jealousy but I knew it was something more. Now I know. Wow. I'm so glad I heard him explain that as it explains so much. Thanks Jordan (and Theo for your honest dialogue)!

    It's interesting how Jordan changes the words he uses with Theo. I've seen almost all of Jordan's interviews and podcasts and he's very good at adapting his speech so that others can understand. I'm not saying Theo is dumb, i'm just saying both of them are very good at adapting to each other's level and have a good conversation. One of my favorite podcast episodes.

    I think you're wrong Jordan(first thing we disagree on), it's not THAT early. We're talking a technology that is ubiquitous among 12/30-year-olds for at least 10 years now. Theo hit it on the head, you are a "Bad Dad" antidote, to people who were never taught how to handle responsibility. Sure looking at the big picture it could be considered early for youtube/video streaming. But for the cynical general pop, you are the wave. Couldn't get tickets for the Glasgow show as they sold-out fast, but will definitely catch you next time your in Scotland

  • Christoffer Gustafssom

    I found the discussion very interesting, however I will remind you that people who does not believe in god does not choose not to believe in god. They just don't find any or enough evidence to support the claim. It like choosing to believe that Japan doesn't exist it makes not sense. I cannot choose what I believe. I have to be convinced one way or another.

    I think his analysis is at least very incomplete if not completely wrong about woman.
    I mean if you are a masochist or are willing to become one maybe his advice may work. It just nearly never works. So you are young you likely not earn much, so you are very unattractive for woman. Of course you can workout like crazy and become the one night stand that works for fucking with many woman, but for a long term relationship what most guys want, it does not, because there you become a success object for woman, either you have directly much money or your outlook to become soon rich is pretty good.
    So but if you are young and invest much hours to get a car and stuff, you will likely not have a good education, which probably hurts your long term earnings.
    Except you are painless and are willing to do lots of hours in a meaningless sales job and you see your only sense to have money and a nice looking woman or something like that.
    So it might work for very single focused people. And even then the woman leaves you as soon as there is a better opportunity available monkey branching. Or god forbid you married her and she gets slightly unhappy she divorces you and takes everything including children away from you.
    On the other site if you are just ignore woman till the 30s more or less at least for long term relationships this woman suddenly become very desperate and nearly no matter what problems you have they will ignore it, if you have some job that pays around the average you can easily get a woman without any work.
    So no it's not this work hard then you get the good hard goal logic this fake capitalistic idea. It's more a pork cycle. Man nearly automatically become more attractive the older they get nearly endless, heck even 80 year olds that do ok/well money wise can have 20 years olds. Woman care nearly 0 about your body. Social status is importent and money yes but that comes or at least used to come nearly automaticly the older you got.
    Heck even mass murderers have woman that are totaly into them and visit them in prison and want to marry them. So the most important thing there is to learn that woman are completelly different from man they have a completly different operation system. If you don't understand that you will try to better fields that do not matter to them. Often people try to better their physical aperence but that is only indirectly helping them.
    Because this guys come more comfortable and have a higher self esteem, because they believe that woman like them more because of their looks, but that is mostly bullshit, woman like them because of their self esteem and the body has very little to do with it, its a small bonus but not more. Heck some woman even hate that, either because of different taste in body looks but also because often woman want to be the good looking one and not even loose on that field, too. The only field they can compete.
    There are even woman that overfeed their guys so that they get less attractive for other woman so that he will not get stolen by another woman.
    You can be the ugliest guy in the world you still will have very little problems to find a woman if you have good money and or good confidence.
    Take Hawkins, very old crippled guy he had many woman, his physical apperence was horrific, to be political incorrect. Woman don't care about bodies or at least very little, yes they will fuck the nice looking guy maybe or a few of them to have the experience but that is not their major goals.
    So better yourself and not saying what that means and saying what are the dangers about woman is not very usefull information. And you should question yourself why do I want a girl friend and is that really a goal you should have, I don't say you don't but is it that you want to be normal or what, is it a deep need, will you get a relationship that is like you want it to, or is female nature goals to conflicting with that?
    It's like going into a store and buying a tv, you likely don't go into the store and say I want one no matter how the prices are and how good this products are. And you might consider maybe I could also just use a projector to watch what I wanna watch instead of buying a tv if the prices and everything is better on that.
    On top of that woman and man don't have untampered visuals, if you ask a woman to paint a picture of you after you are gone and they were maybe because of money or something attracted to you, the picture they draw from you will flatter your extremely and you nearly will not be able to recognize yourself from that picture. They can't even see you objectively.

    What movies are to this podcast, Role Playing Games (paper not video) were to me and my nerd friends. Some of the best gaming session were the ones where our characters were faced with a moral quandary and had to figure out a workable solution within the context of our character's ethical code then deal with the consequences of our individual and group choices. It forced us to think in ways that other people think and make the kinds of choices they may have to make given certain circumstances. It was also fun being "heroes" if only in our imaginations.
