What is Justice?
Bryan and Nick welcome Karen Vander Molen to talk about Justice. Karen is the President of Building Entrepreneurs for Success in Tennessee (BEST). BEST is designed to provide opportunities for personal development and transformation, then teach business and entrepreneurial skills to better equip individuals for successful reentry into the community after incarceration and reduce recidivism. That's a mouthful, but suffice it to say hat Karen is working with people that have found themselves imprisoned for one reason or another so that they can break the cycle and not end up in prison again once they are released. The topic at hand?

They are by no means experts, but they have overcome some of the things necessary to consistently publish a podcast (that's something, right?).Drop them a line! firstname.lastname@example.orgLinks:Fox's Donut Den

Bryan creates a new segment called Bryan's Beverage Corner ("BBC") and he's sure that BBC isn't being used by anything else... Also, Bryan, Nick, and Marshall mix up KonMari with Minimalism.

Why Idiots Rule The World (Part 2)
What?!? A two-parter?! Bryan, Nick, and listener-turned-guest Marshall Couch continue the conversation... Apparently, there are plenty of idiots to talk about... I mean, talk around. In this episode they try to take it a little further and see why some people are so confident that they know things, when they so clearly don't. Also, who's actually doing the work in society? Of course, there are principles and phenomena which give some great fodder for discussion. Maybe the real idiots are the friends we made along the way.You know you want to email them... Send something to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will tell you why you're both right. (Nobody's REALLY ever wrong, you know?)
