Episode 23: Video Games to Careers
This is a different episode than most. In that, Eddie and Darren just started recording a conversation to see where it went. Most of the time, they want to dig deep into a topic.

Sometimes they are really interested in discussing a particular topic and want to be the stimulus in others' thoughts on the topic. No particular subject was brewing in their minds, so they just recorded a conversation to see how it goes. What feedback would give them on episodes, conversations, or topics?

There is a sublte, slight audio pop/click it is fixed at 33 minute mark, apologies Time is a big topic. It is the one currency that we all have the same. Now, we don't all live to be the same age at death. However, in a day to day sense, we all have those 24 hours. How we spend that currency is another facet of our personalities.

Episode 11: Inner Voice
An inner voice is an element of the unique nature of what makes us all different. For whatever reason, some have this and some do not. Eddie and Darren don't have the answer as to why some have it, but this is a discussion about it. One key function to inner voice, is the idea of drafting a question or statement. Narration or private conversation, is another way this inner voice is used. Often, it is just saying what is happening or about to happen in the head of the individual. Some people that do not have an innervoice think with imagery rather than a dialog. Talking to themselves in their head, is possible but very difficult and not second nature. As often the course, the rabbit trail turns into things that bother Eddie or Darren.

Episode 10: Processes
Processes. How do you keep up all of the things you need to do and maintain in your life? The system we use conscious or not, has elements of efficiency or not. As we age and see elements of our life systems, we edit or add on to proceed. When you notice 'there is this thing I always do manually, but it has automaticity', why not add the auto feature? Eddie and Darren talk about everyday life and travel and how systems and processes have worked and not. Schedules feel like work for some. Even managing your free time is a system. If you feel like your time is not managed well often, why not look at how you do it and make a change. Darren has a sense of accomplisment that makes or breaks his days, whether work or free time. Eddie definitely has systems, but may not want a schedule for his leisure time. In an elevated view of life, time is the currency we all have. No one knows how much of that we will given. One thing that is similar among people with a long life, they often comment in the end of their lives about how they spent their time.

Episode 9: Tribes
Have you ever thought about how many humans enable you to live your current life? Tribes have given the human race the ability to increase exponentially. Not only in number, but technology and all areas of advancement. Just think, without all of the people that protect and take care of us. From military to fire to police, all the way to the people that haul our trash away. We all need each other. Early human experience required tribes to survive the environment of the time. Now in a more civilized and populated world, we still have the need to belong to a tribe. Tribes back our ideals, beliefs, and standards. Tribalism is not all good though. Just as there are benfits to the protection in community, groups of common thinking people can push for negative or evil ideas. Everyone has their own set of tribes. Within the sets of tribes, we align for common goal or interest. Hopefully, it is for the good of all.Links:Alone Full Episodes, Video & More | HISTORYYou're Getting a Free Audible Book | Audible.comBiologist E.O. Wilson on Why Humans, Like Ants, Need a Tribe
