Feedback As I’m not sure where I want to take the podcast, I’d like some feedback from you, listeners. I’d like to make the podcast a little more informal, or casual than it has been.

Preparing for a Barter System in the Future

The barter system is something that the first world has all but forgotten in the present day. Thinking about transactions in which there is no money changing hands, just goods, is something that is beyond the scope of a normal American’s thinking capacity. It feels alien, and it feels wrong.

Happy 240th Birthday Marines!

Click here for the Commandant’s 240th birthday message. Three decades ago, I made one of the best decisions on my life and joined the Marine Corps. It was tough and grueling, but it was worth it.
