I’m starting a new project. I miss producing content, but the Anarcho-Yakitalism podcast takes too much time for my balance of perfectionism, laziness, and greed. Yakkin With Nick will be a less structured, no holds barred, and less academic show than AnYak was. It’ll just be me, and perhaps a guest, with no editing and no fluff. Just straight yakkin.
Brett Veinotte invited me to join him to discuss a Facebook thread I started in the School Sucks Podcast Group, where I raised some questions about the “left-right” paradigm and the division between libertarians along this line.

Jim Cunagin joins me to talk about the Milgram Experiments. Stanley Milgram was a psychologist who conducted a series of experiments on obedience and authority. The results of these experiments are somewhat alarming, but there are some silver linings that Jim and I lay out here.
Book mentioned: “Obedience to Authority” by Stanley Milgram found on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Obedience-Authority-Experimental-Perennial-Classics/dp/006176521X

Today I have an interview I did with Caitlyn Scheel a month or so ago about her acceptance into Praxis, an education program. Caitlyn is 15 years old and is directing her own education, this has made her pretty impressive. Praxis is an alternative to college that I’m excited about. With an acceptance rate of 15%, anybody that has been accepted has to be impressive. Caitlyn is the youngest participant to be accepted into Praxis.

Sterlin Luxan joins me to talk about his path to being more compassionate and empathetic, his path to studying psychology, his views on communication strategies being used in the anarchist movement, as well as his opinions on mental illness. This is a great, interesting, and controversial episode. I’d love to hear your feedback, leave your comments below.
