E66: Why The Simple Life is Now Considered Dangerous
We are in crazy times, as I just found out when The Simple Life website was shutdown by the (former) webhosting company, Siteground. In this episode, I dig into all the details of what actually happened and why. But it appears freedom and helping people live a simpler, more self-reliant life is not too popular with the woke left, and the companies they represent. Our personal freedoms are under attack, but we can’t give up, and I for one am up for the fight! Topics Discussed: An update and back in the swing of operation travel trailerWhy it appears my website was taken down and how I fixed itHow tech companies appear to be drinking from a cup of tyrannical powerThey (tech companies) are coming for us, so we better be preparedWhy we must be careful with the tech we use in our everyday livesWhy the big tech companies will never change and should not be trustedWhy Jack Dorsey is full of itHow we can better protect ourselves in the futureSome rants on how I feel about the current state of affairs in our countryWhy we need to be focusing on fixing ourselves firstWhy getting you addicted and wasting time is part of the strategyWhy we need to create alternatives to the companies trying to silence us Resources and links: Belong to The Simple Life Insider’s Circle: http://www.thesimplelifenow.com/betterlifeCREDIT: Episode art background image Photo by Stephen Radford

E62: Liberating the Censored and Stopping the Assault on Free Speech
Are you sick and tired of the political and social bias on today’s social media platforms? Even better yet, have you been banned from one or all of the big social media platforms for expressing your opinion? Did you know there is an alternative? Today I talk with the co-creator of Parler, John Matze. Parler is a competitor to Twitter but has been called the social media platform for racists, sexist and conspiracy theory pushers… do these criticisms have any merit? Or, is it more of the far-left media and activists attacking freedom of speech, which they disagree with? Today we find out! John Matze, CEO of Parler. John is a computer scientist and an expert iOS developer. He is an experienced software consultant, who developed and managed mobile applications and products for startup companies around the United States. John has worked for Alere Medical, General Atomics, and Amazon Web Services on a variety of products ranging from the hellfire missile deployment system on Predator-B to cloud storage infrastructure software handling millions of requests a second. Parler was founded by John Matze and Jared Thomson in Henderson, Nevada in 2018. Matze is the company's chief executive officer and Thomson serves as the chief technology officer. Both Matze and Thomson are alumni of the University of Denver computer science program, and some other Parler senior staff also attended the school. Topics Discussed with John Matze: A bit about JohnHow did the concept of Parler come to beWhy is social media so toxic todayHow the media categorizes everything it doesn’t believe in as right-wing and racistShould the big social media companies be regulated by the federal governmentThe philosophy of Parler and how freedom is at the center of its messageDo Ivy league schools really teach you anythingHow you can run an ethical company and make money at the same timeHow hard work trumps allDoes voting even matter anymoreUsing social media as a tool and not a place to yell at people you don’t know Resources and links: Signup for Parler: parler.comBelong to The Simple Life Insider’s Circle: http://www.thesimplelifenow.com/betterlifeCREDIT: Episode art background image photo by Brian Wangenheim

E49: Truth and Consequences of the Crazy RV Life
Are you yearning for a life of freedom, running your own business, and traveling the country in an RV? As most of you know, I have, and still live the RV life. But today is not about me. Today, I bring on Reagan Snow, who has a fantastic story from a failed marriage, having his soul slowly drained away working in a cubical, doing the daily grind--to rebirth and total freedom! Topics RV Life Tops Discussed: Why being stabbed in the back “literally” changed his lifeHow his RV adventure startedDealing with the Pandemic while living a life on the roadHow his wife found his life purpose for him by accidentHow much they spent to get started in their RV adventure (it may surprise you)Why multiple streams of income are so important as an entrepreneurHow the RV life has taught them and me that the American Dream is actually the American TrapWhy simple doesn’t mean easy and this life isn’t free you need a plan and money to get startedThe fact that anyone can live this lifestyle if they want to Born and raised in a small Southeastern Idaho town Reagan Snow is the child of an upholster, road grater operator, pilot, and an English teacher (divorce does have some benefits). Due to an unfortunate knee injury during his freshman year of high school, Reagan was forced to abandon what would have surely been a mediocre career in high school athletics to pursue theatre. He went on to study theatre at Idaho State University and Boise State University. At the same time Reagan spent time touring the Western United States as a stand-up/improv comedian. After college he spent time traveling The Northwest with the Idaho-Eugene Ballet company and Idaho Opera Company as a stage manager. Reagan then embarked on a career in radio journalism working for National Public Radio (NPR) in Boise, Id, Clear Channel Broadcasting in Tucson, Az, and Broken Chains Media in Fargo, ND. Journalism then took Reagan back home to work for the newspaper that printed his birth announcement. Returning home also allowed Reagan to serve as a city council member, chamber of commerce president, high school athletics stadium announcer, an Sons of the American Legion Commander, along with many other volunteer opportunities In 2017, while his wife, Erin Wright, was beginning her career as a romance novelist they acquired the advertising newsletter Full Hearts Romance. Erin is from another small town in Southern Idaho. She is the USA Today bestselling author of The Long Valley series of novels. She is also the creator of the Facebook group Wide For the Win. She is currently working on her 14th title in The Long Valley series which are based in the fictional Idaho town of Sawyer. By their powers combined they formed Snowflake Press LLC in 2018. The small online business, along with Erin’s writing income allowed the couple the opportunity to work from home. In 2018 they decided that “the office” could be anywhere there was internet service. With their cat, Jasmine, an internet hotspot, and a 25-foot travel trailer they began traveling the western United States. They covered over 12,000 miles and visited 9 states in just nine months before family needs brought them back to Idaho. While the current health climate has stalled their mobile lifestyle for longer than they anticipated Reagan and Erin plan to continue exploring as soon as possible During this pause in their travels, Reagan has access to a large supply of reclaimed lumber that he uses to create American flags. He has also taken the chance to rebuild his forge, a hobby that he has pursued for more than a decade. This led Reagan to create a visual arts offshoot of their company called Snowflake Creations.
