Noah Tetzner is 17. He left school last year to embrace unschooling (it was his mother's idea!) and just a couple of months ago he launched The History of Vikings Podcast. The show was almost immediately successful; Noah has been invited to join a history podcast network, the show has thousands of listeners, he has made great connections with other historians of the Norseman and he is already being asked as a guest on other shows. Noah joins me today to talk about his passion for unschooling, how school destroys creative thinking, and how his life has blossomed away from school. He told me "between being in a school for 8 hours a day and all of the homework, it was impossible for me to spend time learning about the things that I was truly passionate about. I knew what I wanted to do with my future, but instead of chasing after my dreams and pursuing my future I was forced to sit in an institution and listen to countless lectures about things that were in no way of benefit to my life, and my future." Noah is also a School Sucks listener. Discussion: - Noah's educational and schooling history and why he became an unschooler - new opportunities to be an apprentice at a Real Estate firm and to launch a podcast - Noah's approach to the podcast and his plans for the future - How did he become interested in history, and why did he focus in on the viking - The myths of the vikings in history; what was daily life like for Vikings? - Mythology, what was the people's relationship to the gods?

Peaceful parenting is a difficult term. There definitely seems to be some implicit judgment there. What's the alternative to peaceful parenting? Violent parenting? Thus it's understandable why many curious parents would find the label off-putting, as it might raise concerns they wouldn't be able to live up to certain standards in their relationships with their children. Taylor and James Davis have created a podcast to share their parenting journey, one filled with unexpected challenges, new questions and wonderful successes. At OneFreeFamily.com they offer a new take on peaceful parenting. As the parents of young 3 children, they share their story with honesty and vulnerability, but without prescriptions or harsh judgments. Interestingly, Taylor and James both earned teaching certificates in college in the early 2000s, but underwent a paradigm shift in 2010 that led them more in the direction of self-directed education. Their journey began with the Ken Robinson video, Changing Education Paradigms. In today's discussion, they share their strongest influences in their current approach to parenting, how they owning their unusual parenting choices, their differing thoughts on structure, and how they process their memories of interacting with young people before they knew what they know now.

Today, the story of a public school teacher who eventually found a much better way to connect with and teach young people. Joanne Kaminski is the mother of 3 girls, a former public school teacher, and she now runs a successful tutoring company called The Online Reading Tutor. Joanne also has a blog called Become an Online Tutor, where she teaches others to enter this field and to thrive. We'll discuss her path into and out of public school teaching, why she left, and the advantages of online tutoring she has discovered. We'll also cover some of her methods, so this conversation might be helpful to parents of children who are struggling with reading proficiency and interest. Also covered: - Efficiency - 15,000 hours of school for "80 instruction hours" of functional skills? - How to help address negative attitudes that come from school, motivation - What has Joanne learned about learning? - Opportunities for more personalized education - Laying the foundation for a life of active and critical reading - Time management for entrepreneurs Who Is John Taylor Gatto? And what is this dark history of public school? Here is the link I mentioned in the monologue: schoolsucksproject.com/gatto

This is a follow-up to Podcast #558: God, Grant Me the Serenity. Thad's presentation in that episode produced a lot of upset among listeners, and there were several aspects of the conversation that left me feeling unsatisfied. I invited Thad back to address this lack of satisfaction, along with some listener feedback to our first conversation. Topics: - Why Thad and I weren't connecting in the first discussion - Shame and guilt are information - All behavior is narcissistic? - Differing ideas about integrity - Nathaniel Branden and the Six Pillars of Self-Esteem Listener Input: Scott M. - I thought it was a fascinating conversation. I think the premise of Thad’s that I found most problematic was how he defines his politics of self-interest. From what I can determine from the way he presented it on that call, his paradigm is similar to Nietzche and Stirner in that self-interest means whatever I want to the exclusion of the needs of anyone else. You attempted to counter that with a more generous understanding of enlightened self-interest that encompasses the well-being of others within a definition of self-interest, including a healthy society. I found it problematic that he interpreted your desire to contribute to the world as a form of narcissism. And it seemed to me that the only reason he saw not to drive while drunk was the possibility of getting caught and bearing the consequences. He didn’t quite say it, but it felt to me like he was on the verge of saying, if I killed or hurt someone while driving drunk it would be a bummer, but not anything I should feel guilt or shame about. While I think our culture, and religion in particular, capitalizes and abuses our capacity for guilt and shame, I agree with Branden that there are times when it’s legitimate to feel them, as with any emotion, when we’ve violated our integrity or moral code. Of course Thad doesn’t recognize the legitimacy of the very notion of morality, which is a deeper and perhaps more important issue. David G. - What bothered me most about this episode is the way the emotions of shame and guilt were dismissed as having no practical value in people's lives. I disagree. Around the 21 minute mark, Thad asks the question, "So what purpose does shame serve?.... Does it help you?" He goes on to make a distinction between shame and guilt and states general working definitions for each. Guilt: Bad feelings about things that one has done. Shame: Bad feelings about oneself. I take no issue with this distinction and these definitions. What I take issue with is Thad's insistence that shame and guilt do no one any good. I propose that feelings of shame and guilt, in the moment, can be understood as emotional signals that one is not living up to one's own personal standards. Of course, those standards are often the result of cultural programming imposed on the individual by fate, and to borrow from a previous comment, "without analyzing [this programming], we're little more than slaves to our native collective." Prolonged shame and guilt do little but create a state of ongoing internal suffering that I am perfectly fine characterizing as doing no one any good. But if taken as signals that change is required in order to put an end to the suffering associated with shame and guilt, then the feelings themselves do serve a purpose, they have value. They are cues. They signal that one of two basic things has to change: one's behavior; or one's personal standards. Or maybe a bit of both. Either one changes one's choices and behaviors and/or confronts the set assumptions/cultural programming that leading one to feel guilty or ashamed of one's behavior, or one continues to suffer those negative feelings. Around the 26 minute mark, Thad states: "Once you're clear that you don't like who you are or how you are when you're drinking, then it's very simple." Okay. Well, how does one become clear about that? Is it not through experiencing shame and guilt in a given moment? Also, I disagree, it is not simple at all. If it was simple for everyone to change the behaviors and/or personal standards/beliefs that are at the root of their shame and guilt, we wouldn't have a million and one prescriptive methods for self help and behavior change and we wouldn't have so many people racked by shame and guilt. It's not simple at all, it's an incredibly complex problem that's complicated by the fact that each individual person will need their own individual solution. It may be simple for some. It may be simple for Thad. And the realization that CHANGE (broadly speaking) is the solution, is, indeed, simple enough, but having that realization and then acting on it is not simple for everyone. Peter M. - While I was intrigued by Thad's self interest approach to sobriety, and by the idea of replacing the puritan with an accountant, I think obligation to others still has an important role to play. Thad mentioned that part of his need to be sober involved wanting to have a relationship with his son, but let's say another person struggling with addiction chose to abandon their son? I don't think that man's self interest trumps his obligation to his child. I cut 35 minutes of discussion from the final version of the show. This was a difficult decision, because it was a captivating segment and I don't want to censor anything, but I need to consider what is best for the School Sucks brand, along with respect for other recent guests. Time Is Running Out The Next Renegade University and School Sucks Project event is happening May 11-13 in the original renegade city of New Orleans. At the end of this podcast we'll discuss some of the details and the new features. For more information and to secure your spot, go to ThaddeusRussell.com/courses

(Released 4/25/18, Show - 1:30:00, 2 Segments, Promo Clip - 0:15:43) An unreleased snapshot from School Sucks Across America. In early Novemeber 2017, I attended a "Friendsgiving" dinner party with School Sucks listeners and friends. Huge thanks to Darren and Mic for hosting and making sure I had a great time while in the Bay Area. Back in 2014, Darren actually bought me the Zoom h4 I used to record all the audio during the trip. So after people had a few drinks, I pulled it out, hit record and set it on the table (people were aware). This audio is edited; it features two portions of over three hours of lively conversation. Topics include: - A criticism of School Sucks? - Is empathy overrated - Alex Jones - California pot politics - Oppressive taxation and the prospects for revolt Full Show: patreon.com/schoolsucks The Next Renegade University and School Sucks Project event is happening May 11-13 in the original renegade city of New Orleans.

(Part Two of Two) Zak Slayback returns for a marathon discussion on how to set and make progress towards meaningful personal and professional goals. Recorded April 9th in Pittsburgh, PA in the studio of good friend Andrew Mercer. I was really happy Andrew joined us; he added some great stories and thoughtful questions related to his own productivity journey. The first conversation focused on deschooling - how to unlearn and discard certain limiting beliefs that interfere with professional success and fulfillment. Today we go into detail on Zak's "Ambition Mapping" process for goal setting.
Productivity
- Being busy vs. being productive: what is the highest priority? - Andrew's productivity quest, Getting Things Done - Know what you're looking for; identifying specific outcomes - Building connections between visions and tasks
Ambition Mapping
If you had a map to navigate a labyrinth, you know you should trace your way backwards based on your destination. You adjust your path based on where you start relative to where you want to go. People know this when playing a game and know it in general when choosing a career (i.e., if I want to be a doctor, I should go to medical school) but rarely re-examine their path using this through their careers. This process of regularly looking at where you want to go, evaluating where you’re starting, and working backwards from the destination to where you are now is what I call ambition mapping. - Zak Slayback - Built off Nathaniel Branden's sentence stems - What does it mean to esteem oneself? - Defining "progress" and "meaningful goals" - Ambition mapping is a three-phase writing process 1. Day One: Via Negativa - Identify what you don't want 2. Day Two: Via Positiva - Identify what you DO want 3. Day Three: Review Stems from the previous 2 days and find the intersection between the two. Research what fits in the intersection. Build the ambition map: the path from where you want to go back to where you are.

Part One of Two Zak Slayback returns for a marathon discussion on how to set and make progress towards meaningful personal and professional goals. Recorded April 9th in Pittsburgh, PA in the studio of good friend Andrew Mercer. I was really happy Andrew joined us; he added some great stories and thoughtful questions related to his own productivity journey. This first conversation focuses on deschooling - how to unlearn and discard certain limiting beliefs that interfere with professional success and fulfillment. In the next installment we'll go into detail on Zak's "Ambition Mapping" process for goal setting. We start with some updates on Zak; since his last appearance on the show he left Praxis and he now works for himself as a business and career consultant. He focuses on helping young professionals learn the skills school never taught, including building networks, written and verbal communication and self-teaching. Zak believes that deschooling yourself is an essential first step in the process of learning how to set and achieve meaningful goals. We also discuss: - Imposed structure vs Organic Structure (being schooled vs. being self-directed) - Why Zak doesn't like the intrinsic vs extrinsic motivation framework - Motivation and willpower - Setting up "machines" - automating essential personal/professional processes Related Shows: [PODCAST] #401: Setting and Achieving Goals (1 of 2) – Attitudes, Obstacles and Mistakes [PODCAST] #402: Setting and Achieving Goals (2 of 2) – Ten Tips For Success [PODCAST] #454: Building A Credential Better Than the College Degree, With Zak Slayback

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
