Episode 159 - Like a duck (in the crosshairs)

When you travel, you meet a lot of interesting people. If you are not from around their parts, they let their guard down and tell you what is really going on. These simple conversations are important to bring us back to reality and compare the contrarian lifestyle with the traditional. Oh, and there will be stories about ducks!

Episode 157 - The story of Starlink & Rural Australia

Government & their best intentions can destroy the hope and future of a country. Whether it is from corruption, or just poor management, putting all of your faith & trust in central planners never seems to work out. In this episode, I tell the story of exactly that - government taking away the future from a country with so much promise and trying to sell it as a victory for the average Joe.

Episode 146 - What they don’t tell you about retirement

Whether you are in your 50s and looking at when you want to pull the trigger & retire, or if you are in your 30s and think you can retire early, you need to hear this episode. I’m going to tell you that it isn’t rainbows & unicorns out there and most have no plan for how this period of their life will play out.

Episode 145 - Wealth creation is an art, not a science

In this episode, I explore why most new entrants to becoming financially free fail - misunderstanding the basics of humans vs. science, and what is needed to understand and be responsible in betting against the herd to gain wealth.

Episode 144 - How contrarians see the world

In this episode I explore the freedom of movement - travel, and how to find wealth in opportunities on our planet. I discuss how having a domestic only view excludes all the gems that exist outside of your homeland and explore the concept of "You can never be a wise man in your home town".

Episode 143 - Retire early is dead

The concept of retirement assumes a finite end of work. When one is older, they may not be able to work due to age, but for those capable and younger, the idea of retiring early assumes you are not doing what you love to begin with. In this episode, I react to many that are defending the idea of retiring early in a world of high inflation, low stock market returns, etc. rather than addressing whether the entire strategy is flawed to begin with. And I offer an alternative.

Episode 142 - The Church of Retirement

In this episode I will take the long held social position and faith-based retirement planning industry and blow it out of the water - whether it be for someone looking to retire in their 60s or someone looking to retire a lot earlier.

Episode 141 - Pay off your damn home mortgage!

In this unscripted episode, I talk about my own personal experiences since the age of 26 in buying my own home, the numerous homes (and mortgages) I've had, and how I eventually paid off the home mortgage. I talk about the differences between investment property and your principal residence, and how many view this unrealistically.

Episode 140 - Society is infected by insecurity

For the past couple of years, we’ve been dealing with a biological virus that has turned people into fearful victims, and given tacit permission to evil to prevail in governance. But for far longer than that, we’ve been dealing with a very different plague – the plague of insecurity. In this episode I’m going to deep dive this plague, and how this is turning out.

Episode 139 - 10 Years of Bitcoin

In this episode, I spend the first half talking about how I stumbled into Bitcoin and left the space after getting 1,800x my original investment. In the second half, I talk about what Bitcoin & cryptocurrencies have become and where I see this all heading.
