Here is special episode #28 of the Bold and Determined Podcast.
It has nothing to do with the last episode and nothing to do with the next episode (though obviously all the topics we discuss are always the same).
The streaming audio is available above.

In this episode we discuss:
- Bodybuilding strategies on the carnivore diet
- Bodybuilding strategies on the one meal a day diet
- Where do white people come from?
- The Book of Genes (The Book of Genesis)
- The future of America and the war on beauty
Victor, Today marks Day 26 of my strict Carnivore eating plan. I haven’t eaten anything but protein and occasional cheese stick. Been taking the rest of my RED PCT (1.0) along with RED Burner for the last 2 weeks.
With the diet and Supplements I’ve lost 18.6 pounds. I’ve been hitting the gym as hard as I can 3 days a week doing mainly compound lifts (deadlift, squat, wide-pull-up, military press, weighted dips, shrugs, and abs).
I’ve noticed I’m getting very exhausted after the gym. Also my pumps aren’t as intense. I’m afraid I might be losing muscle.
I've been watching that youtube video you sent out about the War on Beauty. It's so true.
We have more “art & entertainment” today than in the entire history of mankind, but the large majority of it is just mass-produced garbage.
Even more sinister than garbage, it's intentionally made to drain hope, inspiration, beauty and uplifting ideas from the people.
There's no good music, there's no good art, there's no good books.
The other day I was seriously trying to remember the last time I read a book or an article that I could consider art. (Other than B&D of course.)
Everything is regurgitated, informational, soundbites, everything is 240-character limit twitter thoughts.
Everyone has a opinion about everything that is a mile wide and an inch deep.
Where did all of the deep thinkers go? Where's all of the art? Where's the writing that's so good that when you read it, it punches you in the gut? The words that grab your attention so deeply you can't stop thinking about it for days?
I remember when I was younger I could sit and read books for hours on end. Spend entire days in my living room reading. I can't remember the last time I did that.
I realize that this is my fault. I've let myself get consumed by this social media addicted, instant-gratification, inch-deep culture.
It felt very different when I was in Asia. Being back in America for 8 months now, I feel myself going a little crazy. I took a trip to the Dominican Republic a few weeks ago, just to get away from the cold and get some sun.
People there reminded me of people in Vietnam, so happy and carefree. You actually saw children running around and playing in the streets.
Is America just doomed? Is there any way to help people in America see that they are all walking down a dark path to destruction?
Or is it just an inevitability that all things must fall?
Until next time.
