@Gagi have you (or any other history lovers here) ever listened to Dan Carlin, with the podcast is Hardcore History? His podcasts are absolutely incredible, might be the best Ive ever heard, not just on history but podcasts in general. Strong focus on the historical rulers and their authoritarian and/or global conquests.

Have one on now and recon you would like it. Beyond fascinating and so in depth.
Haha so weird that you wrote this, just this afternoon I was listening to a AoM podcast episode about the rise and fall of Athens.

Will check out Carlin, although judging by some of the episode titles, seems like it's a bit too clickbaity, bit too accessible, bit too hardcore. Will try to find an episode I might like and give it a chance. Any particular episodes you might recommend?

ps:

In case you're scared of being turned to "the dark right wing side" :devilish: 😝

his follow up 12 more rules for life actually got quite a glowing review from one of Breadtube's main figureheads Philosophy Tube. Though you'll have to take his/her word for it as I also haven't been able to pick that up due to various life issues.
Honestly it's not even that. Just gotta make it a goal: "today I will (speed) read 30-50 pgs from his book"

I still have the man on Soundcloud, he told me he enjoyed his time here but seen as the entire forum (at least that was his impression) hated the music he loved (so basically the newer Orjan stuff) he decided to move on to a more producer-based forum as opposed to a trance music one.
Damn, that sucks
Can relate, tbh. I've had my music taste bashed here before, and after that I took a solid break.

I like Andrew Huberman, with the Huberman Labs podcast. His style really is fantastic and he gets the most out of guests. Its health and improvement focused.

I also like Sam Harris, mainly the episodes that focus on the human mind and psychology, as I am a practicing psychologist. He frames conversations often with ethics and deeper thinking which is not as common as you think for topics on podcasts.

you're hereby cordially invited to chip in into the "mental health " thread we have on this forum (y) would be great to actually have a proffesional say a word or two about things like palliatives, diagnoses and treatments

Maybe I should. I usually don't like giving advice to people I don't know, because context and history of the patient really must be understood. A reasonable picture must be formed. But I do obviously enjoy discussion on the topic so maybe I will join.
