Floriao asks… (4:00)
What's they key to happiness?
Nikhil asks… (8:25)
When’s Red-PCT coming back? Waiting on Red Growth for it.
Michael asks… (9:03)
I’m 206lb, 30% Body Fat. Should I use Red Growth while I lose weight?
MoneyStudy asks… (9:56)
Hi Victor, when you came back to America did you notice an absence of normal people? 10 years ago it felt like a different universe compared to now. The lunatics, the freaks, and the weirdos have taken over.
Levi asks… (15:46)
I know conspiracies and theories are time wasting, but what can we do about the general western trend? (Leftism, Etc.) Should we be learning to hunt, survive, possibly prepping supplies and canned goods? Should we accept that globalism is inevitable?
Joseph asks… (20:42)
What are your views on biohacking?
“Biohacking is the process of making changes to your lifestyle in order to “hack” your body’s biology and feel your best.” (source)
Jon Skywalker asks… (20:21)
A question I have had as of late is regarding CBD oil, also known as Cannabinoid Oil. What are your thoughts on this supplement/medicine? Is it all it’s hyped up to be? Or is it just like every other drug we’ve discussed on the B&D Podcast?
Bill asks… (23:47)
You mentioned the 7 deadly sins. Pride is one of them. What is your view on this as having pride and ego seems to be a positive thing, as often mentioned in bold and determined? Other than that what is your views on each of the 7 sins?
- 7 deadly sins: Lust – Gluttony – Greed – Sloth – Wrath – Envy – Pride
- 7 Christian virtues: Chastity – Temperance – Charity/Generosity – Diligence – Patience – Gratitude – Humility
The rules you live by were given to you by people who do not follow those rules. Why? Because they don't want competition.
For thousands of years the priesthood has been confronting a simple problem which they cannot solve.
They see criminals, sinners becoming successful, rich.
They see simple people, innocent people being crushed, exploited, oppressed, and still religion goes on saying, “Be simple, be innocent.”
Then the question arises: if innocence and simplicity are never rewarded, only corruption, cruelty, violence are rewarded, then why be simple?” – Osho
Here are the REAL 7 deadly sins, the 7 deadly sins of business:
Chez asks… (27:15)
Hey vic, Who do you think are the greatest poets of our time and why?
Bob asks… (28:10)
What’s your opinion on internet and smartphone addiction? I find that I am becoming more addicted to information, YouTube videos, and constant reading and scrolling. I feel as if this is frying my brain and dopamine. I cannot be alone and feel content and happy just being in nature.

Meeko asks… (32:38)
Do you believe a person's intelligence can be improved the same way that their financial situation can? If someone wanted to become the richest and cleverest person in the whole world, is that a reasonable ambition?
Graham asks… (35:18)
How to stop protein farts? I eat low processed foods only but I seem to always be ripping ass in the gym. Kind of helps cause no one bothers me when I’m lifting that way but nonetheless I’m interested in stopping it. Is it as simple as eating slower and chewing food more?
Andrew L. asks… (37:22)
Do you think that it’s ok to start a business on a platform such as Etsy, Amazon, etc. while it does violate CENTS from the millionaire fastlane initially, as a business starting out, you get more sales and traffic from the get go. I sell on etsy and make a living from Amazon, but I do have worries when I get an email about issues with my account. At the same time, building an audience and sales channel will take a long time and will never match these channels. It’s a deal with the devil but it’s also allowing me immediate freedom within a year.
Bogdan asks… (39:07)
Hi Victor, I want to start a blog under my own name and start creating content. My only issue is that I have several divergent topics I want to write about. Everything ranging from self development to drawing and creativity. I am afraid that the site will be too scattered in content, leaving the audience with a mixed message or signal. What are your thoughts on this? Cheers.
Ian asks… (39:57)
What are your thoughts on showers and baths? When taking a shower, should you use only cold water all year? Is lounging in the bath like Winston Churchill alright for one’s mental well being and physical, or do these hurt one, physically or not?
Alec asks… (42:40)
Do you season your meat with anything when you sear it?
Prince Angel asks… (43:07)
Do you recommend buying online courses or is there a better way to learn and gain a skill? I have always wanted to learn copywriting as a professional skill but I have been reluctant to buy expert copywriting courses.
(44:12) What’s your advice about doing doing freelancing work on upwork for a young man? I know about Damian and fiverr. But would you personally do it or not?
Marquise asks… (45:05)
What’s your opinion on Colloidal/Liquid Silver and Turpentine as an health alternative. Big pharma says it’s bad but the little guys says it’s good. I’d like to hear your opinion on it since I take your word to a higher regard.
Michael asks… (46:16)
What is your favorite memory as a child? I feel that during our childhoods our third eyes were open more and we were much more in the present moment. I am doing my best to get back to that state and curious on your thoughts on it.
Bart asks… (47:00)
After I read your posts about never masturbate again and why you should quit viewing porn, I’m motivated and I stop. But after about a week, the thoughts hit me like a flood. The images in my mind start tempting me and I find myself going back to both. My question is — it sounds like you’ve really kicked the habit for good. But for us who still struggle with the thoughts and temptations of the mind, what do you do when those thoughts start filling your head, especially in the morning and late at night? What’s the remedy for this?
Taehun asks… (48:04)
When do you read? Do you read in the morning? Or do you read before bedtime? Or do you set aside certain amount of time of day and read? I’ve got lots of interesting books to read(including Shadow Men on the list) but my day ends up not reading them. I wanna know your typical reading habit.
Anthony asks… (49:24)
In the karma episode you mentioned something along the lines of western women are only good for two things, Pumping and dumping. I would like to hear more into the “why” you think there only good for sex. And how you deal with them I ask because a lot of us are struggling with our addiction to them.
Colton asks… (51:22)
I’m still living at home with my parents though and it’s time to get out of here ASAP and be more independent. What would you recommend to someone in my position? I’ve heard you recommend freelancing but that’s essentially what I’m already working on with the fitness business and it does not seem wise to try building two businesses at the same time.
Luke asks… (52:41)
Vic, you said that circumcision can cause psychological damage that the person doesn’t remember. Do you think this is the reason so many men struggle with premature ejaculation, depression, and other so called mental problems?
Wolf asks… (54:02)
Hey Vic, what advice can you give a man who has a great vision for the future and a clear picture about himself in a few years but he doesn't know which path I should follow.
JP asks… (55:26)
1) How would you deal with controlling parents? How would you deal with them if they are controlling – like watching what you do and how you spend – and it seems it will take a while before you can be independent to them (specifically, financially)?
2) How would you pick yourself up if you are depressed (assumed, not clinical), have no job, no college degree (yet), and no savings, and have controlling parents whom you financially dependent to? I must also note that I’m from the Philippines… which is a developing country, unlike yours in the US.
Gerasimos asks… (56:26)
I went out with a girl I met on a bus and had plenty of fun talking with her. The problem is I didn’t manage to get flirty with her, I pussied out. How do I not pussy out on the next date?
Brad asks… (56:40)
Do you have a particular place or website that you buy raw milk from? It is illegal in my state for some reason.
EA asks… (57:06)
Question: best way, and tips on how to be consistent?
Steven asks… (57:46)
What is your view on male pattern baldness in men? Do you think it’s hereditary or simply genetics?
Martin asks… (58:18)
I listened to your talk about giving up the coffee, to remove the anger and anxiety in my life. I immediately find that this works. However, I’m having a difficult time avoiding it on a daily basis. Any tips I can do to make it a permanent change ?
Bill asks… (59:23)
How can someone save $100,000?
(59:48) Best herbs/teas for staying calm?
Otavio asks… (1:00:43)
How many posts had you published before you started noticing a steady stream of visitors on B&D?
(1:01:10) Do you believe some people might be more inclined to feel better eating vegetables as you do eating meat? I have a theory that we might be conditioned in some way, genetically or not, to be able to eat vegetables and meat in various degrees.
Levi asks… (1:02:28)
In the future at B&D or in the Podcasts I’d love to see some further discussion on online + offline privacy. I remember an article some time ago that had some decent tips. I am huge privacy geek who takes this stuff to an extreme level, but I’d like normal guys to have some tips that would help them possibly be more free in 10 years from now. Nobody knows how this surveillance will effect us, I am imagining a China social score system, etc.
Harry asks… (1:05:25)
What would happen if I were to watch pornography occasionally, such as once per month. Would this have a negative affect on dopamine and sexual energy?
Stan asks… (1:06:32)
What are your views on Jack Donovan, and his book “the way of men”?
(1:07:22) What are your views on Dr Shawn Baker. He is a big proponent of the carnivore diet. His testosterone tested at 227ng/dl but he’s 6ft5 240lbs Of solid muscle?
Steve asks… (1:08:41)
What is it like for someone who is always on the move to new cities? Can you describe in detail what that lifestyle is like?
Alex asks… (1:09:25)
Should blog articles that were written over 3 years ago and don’t get any traffic be deleted from your blog?
Dr. Ron asks… (1:09:41)
What is your opinion of a single man going to an Asian Massage parlor and getting a happy ending. How does this fit into your conversations about masturbation vs. sex with a woman. Is it the former or latter in your view?
Jack freeman asks… (1:10:22)
Do you think podcasts are more popular than reading blogs?
Gal Hadad… (1:11:38)
What are your thoughts on Mouthwash/toothpaste? I read that they kill the bad bacteria along with the good bacteria, affecting the production of Nitric Oxide in our body and blood flow decreases as a result. Is this a reason to stop using them? Do you have a better alternative?
Romeo asks… (1:12:16)
Also, this ties into this topic but could you speak to the culture here in America (Especially cities) where most folks are living paycheck to paycheck in order to finance an external facade driven by materialism. What does this behavior mean for the economy? What does this behavior mean for the individuals consumed by it? Has social media catalyzed this?
Jason asks… (1:14:26)
What does your morning/daily routine consist of? Also what do you do to stay clean and well groomed? Do you recommend any natural grooming products such as soap, shaving cream, shampoo and cologne?
Sebas asks… (1:15:04)
Hi, Vic. I work from home, but some days I get really bored. What can I do?
D/C Russ… (1:15:51)
What are your biggest takeaways from lost texts such as the Gospel of Thomas?
Topic for the next episode…
What were spiritual leaders like Jesus actually trying to teach?
That's it friends.
Until next time.
