Episode 037 Mike Dawson
Since Rob's back from Afghanistan, it's only fitting that we go back to where it all started....Dawsangeles baby! Rob and Mike Dawson sit down again at Dawsangeles studios to talk about Mike's new podcast on Podcast 1, "Front of House," reminisce on some fond memories, talk about current events, music, and even solve the eternal question of "which was first, the chicken or the egg?"

Episode 035 Dr. Craig Wiener
As a man who grew up under the diagnosis of ADHD and it's subsequent drug prescriptions, this episode is a pretty important one for Rob. Today we sit down with Dr. Craig Wiener, author of Author of "Parenting Your Child with ADHD: A No-Nonsense Guide for Nurturing Self-Reliance and Cooperation" and Assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Dr. Wiener talks with Rob about the reaons he believes ADHD is a psychological manifestation, not biological, and what that means for parents who don't want to simply throw drugs at their child. Dr. Wiener goes into ways a parent can use his book and methods to treat ADHD without drugs, and how this method can even be used in children without ADHD to help them socialize properly.

Could you sit down and write a list....or book about ten things that you as a man (or woman) are doing well? Nick Theophilou has, and it's called "Ten Stories about things Men are Doing Well," and he was kind enough to sit down with Rob to talk about his book and what he thinks men are doing well. Nick has been a counselor and has been in mens groups for over 20 years, has a documentary titled "Sons of the Father: Inside a Men's Group" and has been writing on men's topics in Australia for some time now.

Episode 029 Silent J
Wow, this is a long one, but there was so much awesome we just had to pack it into one show. Rob sits down with Silent J (from Tactical 16 radio with Silent J) to talk about celebrity porn videos, doing cocaine off a dirty Burger King bathroom floor, Canadian shoppers, going from punk rocker to military, comedy, entertainment, doing stand up at a drag show, dealing with infidelity, the 50's American male, how important a good drink made well is, my video game character getting killed by 13 year olds and much more. We have a conspiracy theory of the day on the Nephilim, suggested by one of our listeners, and it brings up some interesting points.

Episode 026 Money, Currency and Politics
With all that's going on in the world today, it's time to do a little investigation and explanation of the difference between money, currency, and how they're both tied into politics. Rob goes into an in-depth explanation of the difference between money and currency, the value of gold and silver, how they're tied in to money and where they all get their value from (and why that's a very scary proposition these days). He also ties in how they're related to politics, and again, why that's such a scary idea, in the case that the government can devalue or straight up steal your money (it's been done before). Staying on the same thread, we hear snips of a 60minutes episode that recently aired on the fact that many members of the US Congress have been using their Political Action Campaign (PAC) accounts as both their own piggy banks and new sources for them to make more personal money, and how that ties into our money and money system. Mike Amabile and Run Over Twice perform their track "Broken Glass" off the "Open Your Eyes" album, and Brother Robert Johnson stops by with this weeks Famous Freemason.

Episode 025 Rob's Take
Welcome back everyone and thanks for being back onboard after the traveling hiatus. Rob's had about enough with what's going on in our world at the moment so has a lot to get off his chest with this one. A few great updates about a new venue offering Far From Centered, some new articles Rob wrote for Iron Mike and Midnight Freemasons, progress on the new book and good news about the old. The main topics for today follow the good, the bad, and the ugly; first, Prince Harry the badass (the good), the government shutdown, a new 2nd amendment storm brewing in the classroom and more military leaks via the White House (the bad), and supreme waste of oxygen Gloria Alred representing a member of the NYC biker gang who she says was an innocent victim (the ugly). Brother Rober Johnson brings us this weeks Famous Freemason (get those 80's mullets and karate belts out of the closet) and Mike Amabile & Run Over Twice play their track "I See You."

Episode 024 Jordan Harbinger
Well it's been a long time gone but welcome back everyone! Rob finally found a good private internet company in his new location, so it's game on again. Far From Centered Episode 024 is a great one to come back on, so hold on to your hats and enjoy the ride. As of the time of recording, the government is currently shut down, and Rob is a bit pissed to say the least, and has a bit to say about political theatre and the lack of spine in our current politicians. He opens up with some great suggestions for books that he read during his travel, which you can also find at FarFromCentered.com. Mike Amabile and Run Over Twice perform this weeks song, "Black Label Whiskey" and make Rob a little homesick, and Sir Brother Robert Johnson brings us this weeks Famous Freemason, which makes Rob even more homesick. The guest for this episode is Jordan Harbinger, who very well may be Rob's new favorite person; they talk about traveling the world, having a wild hair up your ass as a kid, not getting a limb or your wang cutt off, and Jordans many crazy life experiences, like: living and studying abroad in Jerusalem, being kidnapped in Mexico and again in Bosnia by drunk, drug crazed cops, social engineering, newtorking in communist countries, human hacking and the eduction system. Yeah, you can tell Rob really enjoyed this one! They also got to talk about The Art of Charm, Jordans company which teaches confidence, social smoothness and all around charm to people from all over the world, so make sure to check out their website after listening. http://www.ArtofCharm.com @TheArtOfCharm http://WCYpodcast.com @WhenceCameYou htt://www.RunOverTwice.com @RunOverTwice http://FarFromCentered.com @FarFromCentered http://www.LoveMeWhenImGone.com @RobertPLewis

Brother Robert Johnson has another very cool and industrious Famous Freemason for this week (and as Rob has been dutifully enjoying his pre-deployment beer, it's quite appropriate), and Mike Amabile & Run Over Twice perform one of their top his "I See You" from the Better Side of Me Album. http://manschoolshow.com/ http://calebbacon.com/ @CalebEatsBacon

Episode 020 Erik Shaw and Jeff Whitby
The time has finally come for Rob to drop the bomb, and drop it he does. For those of you who've been tuning in for the past few episodes and hearing him talk about some big news that he couldn't quite divulge yet....the cat's out of the bag. Rob has a lot of mentions, thank you's, heads up and info to put out, and goes into an explanation of his belief that there is no such thing as coincidence. The guests for this episode are Erik Shaw (Tactical 16, "Brave Rifles" author) and Jeff Whitby (www.DirtyBeret.com), and with Erik freshly home from an AFghanistan deployment and Jeff being a former Green Beret with Afghanistan experience (with the same ODA that Rob went with, funny enough) the guys spend this episode covering everything they can about Afghanistan, from their personal experiences, what they think we're doing right and wrong, and what they see for the future.

Time to go down the rabbit hole....this ep starts out with some shout-outs from Rob and heads up for a few interviews he did during the week, a big milestone passed this week, more news in the Canada vs UK listener numbers, and Robs opinion of people who use their status in certain organizations to brag or try to make up for shortcomings in life. We have Reiki Master Jeannie from Angels Touch Reiki back with us again this week, and we're going a bit deeper this time....meditation, the change from the Picean Age to the Age of Aquarius, what that realy means, and about 3/4 of the interview is spent talking about Extra Terrestrials (ET's), what they really are, where they came from, and messages from them that Jeannie has received as a Reiki Master, Clarvoyant and Channeler.

Episode 015 Green Beret-turned Comedian Jeff Whitby
Anybody know what happens when you get two Green Berets in a room together? Eventually the war stories start flowing. What began as an innocent interview with a Green Beret combat vet turned stand up comedian became an all-out Bro-mance as Rob and Jeff go over his past as an Independant Southern Baptist, Bible College, the decision to go to Special Forces, LOTS of Afghanistan war stories, and then somehow the conversation turned to politics, conspiracy theories, sleep paralyis, and just about everything you can think of. Brother Robert Johson stops by with the weekly Famous Freemason (or Freemasons for this one), Mike Amabile and Run Over Twice play their hit song "Sold My Soul," and Rob spends a little too much time talking about how happy he is to meet another 1/10 guy in Los Angeles!

The first in the mini-ep series, this is just a soapbox for Rob to get on his high horse and talk about things that are getting him all riled up. No music, no Famous Freemason, just Rob talking about a specific issue. Todays episode is about the 9/11/12 Benghazi tragedy, why you're not getting the full story from the main stream media about the events that transpired and ended with the loss of four brave Americans.

Episode 012 Mike Dawson
Dawson is back from being on the road and working on his mini projects, so he and Rob finally sit down to do an in-depth interview with Dawson. Most people know him from the Carolla show, but we get into his vast experience in music and entertainment, ranging from working a major concert venue at 15 and hustling BB Kings drummer, his experience with Alan Parsons, producing music, podcasts, how he got on the Adam Carolla Show and being a radio DJ. Brother Robert Johnson stops by with a very familiar Famous Freemason, a little bit darker than the ones we've seen before, and we play Mike Dawsons song Ramblin Man, the track that gave him the ability to say "Allan Parsons stole my guitarist" because it was so good.
