Being your own hero means being a role model to yourself and others. It means becoming someone you can look up to, admire, respect. This is self-esteem, and it’s the foundation for happiness.
But it doesn’t require that you achieve superhuman feats or massive achievements in one swoop. Join Matthew as he discusses the daily choices and behaviors that everyone may practice, and how being a hero is attainable for everyone. And necessary for everyone.
Are you “just living” or are you fully alive? The latter doesn’t have to mean you’re jumping out of airplanes and swimming with sharks. In this interview, best-selling author and sought-after speaker, Danny Bader, offers a tried and tested system for developing a vision of your best self and creating that reality–today and every day.
“Never has there been a better time to be alive in human history.” So claims the opening line of this podcast.
Guest Jason Crawford delivers an overwhelming case to back it up–which is his business. As a writer on the history of technology and industry, his expertise and encyclopedic ability to highlight example after example of real-world progress in the past centuries, decades, and years will stun you. As a thinker and writer on the philosophy of human progress, he helps reinforce Matthew’s desperate calls to look, see, and appreciate how good we’ve all got it.
Who decides what is safe? For whom? Can others force their tastes on you? What is a right? What constitutes a violation of rights? Should the government protect you from your own choices?
Matthew argues that innovative, fun, delicious, and culture-enhancing products and services that we might enjoy never come into existence because of party poopers. Who are they, and why do they want to poop the party?
Either-or thinking is keeping us from making good choices, both in socio-political issues and in our personal lives. In the former, false alternatives are often erected to establish partisan lines which substitutes rationalization for rational thought, keeping us further from solutions. In the latter, a similar method of rationalization (advocating for choices based on emotional considerations) keeps us from making optimal choices by never defining a rational goal.
Do you feel frustrated with the changes you haven’t made yet? Do you know what to do, but you’re just not doing it consistently? If you doubt your ability to change, allow Elizabeth Benton to help you change your mindset.

What’s it like to live in Korea? What are Koreans like? Join Matthew and guest Jason Cresswell to go in-depth as to what living in Korea actually looks like.
The boys take listener questions to cover topics such as: food, education, Korean character and goals, gender roles, beauty standards, cost of living, language, “hurry, hurry” culture, and much more as to why they’ve made Korea their home for the past 20 years.
Matthew shares how by setting strict limits on our behavior, we can become effectively unaware of the restrictions and deprivation and instead experience only freedom in how we eat and live. This is as true in diet as it is with other daily stresses that can overwhelm us if left undesignated or unlimited. Matthew feels free to eat “whatever he wants,” and he’s not joking.
