The Random Show, Episode 24: Porn Attacks, Eating Insect Protein, Tech Finds, and More

72 Comments

There are dozens of topics covered in this tea-infused, bromantic episode of scatterbrained nonsense.

Like what? Well: porn (including select picks), taking an “alcohol vacation,” fixing low testosterone, the wonders of insect protein, start-up talk, and much more. O-tanoshimi dane!

Please note: The 100 free spots for Exo protein bars filled up in less than 15 minutes! Hope to do more giveaways next month, but — in the meantime — you can get Exo here, while inventory lasts. My favorite flavor right now is cacao nut.

This edition of The Random Show was recorded and edited by Graham Hancock(@grahamhancock). For all previous episodes, including the epic China Scam episode,click here.

  1. I recently read an interesting book about porn (the author taking the view that it is a sort of public health epidemic), and was reminded of it while watching this episode of The Random Show. Some of you may find it interesting – “Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality” by Gail Dines.

  2. Raw Elite record holding powerlifter Jamie Lewis has some interesting views on the whole “sex frequency and testosterone” issue.

  3. Fermented Turmeric Tea is awesome! I spent about 3-4 weeks in Okinawa Japan and you see a lot of the older generation drinking it. When talking with people, I always asked their perspective on why people in Okinawa live so long and Fermented Turmeric Tea was at the top of the list. [Moderator: Link removed.]

    Though it should be mentioned, and I wonder if Tim and Kevin noticed this as well, but the younger generation seems to be moving away from the traditional Okinawa diet and lifestyle. They eat a lot of meat/processed food/less vegetables, they don’t take part in traditional activities that their elders do, and they spend a lot of time isolating themselves via technology. I’m curious to see if within the next 50-80 years the Okinawa lifespan stays the same as the younger generation matures.

  4. Hey Tim,

    I read that you talked about ETHEREUM.
    I wondered if you were interested in cryptocurrencies.
    Have you heard of NXT? It’s a decentralized system that will revolutionize the way finance will do business.

    Here are some resources:
    http://nxt.org/
    http://nxtforum.org
    http://wiki.nxtcrypto.org/wiki/Main_Page

    The marketcap of NXT is currently over 60 million dollars.
    And this could well be over 300 million soon and over 1 billion on mid term scale (1 year) and over 5 billion on the long term.

    Hope you learned some new stuff!
