An honest talk with John Waters
We are fighting a war for our children's lives...
Last week I had the honor of sitting down down for a particularly inspired chat with Irish activist and author John Augustine Waters. John introduced the conversation with a few paragraphs under the heading, "We are fighting a war for our children's lives," adding that, "This may be the most important conversation you've heard in the past three years of horror since the war burst into plain sight.
We discussed artificial intelligence (no, it’s not going to control us), Ukraine, Putin, China, World Economic Forum, human productivity, money, happiness, love and hope.
Since John and I are (almost) in the same time zone we spoke during the morning hours, which helped, I think. I regularly have talks with US or Canadian-based podcasters, usually recorded late in the evenings and as my days tend to be quite intense, more often than not, I'm drained by that time and the energy can seem low.
A friend wrote me after a recent podcast and said that I looked tired. I think that in this talk, thanks to John’s excellent questions discussed during the morning hours made quite a difference. If you find the podcast interesting, please consider sharing it: it seems that I’ve again come in the censors’ crosshairs and Twitter won’t link to some of my articles.
You can find the podcast on John Waters’ Odysee channel at the link below. It’s two hours long, so I’ll keep this article short.
