Roll On: Meditations On The Moderation Wars

Welcome to another edition of Roll On—my bi-monthly deep dive into (semi) current events, topics of audience interest, and of course answers to your questions.

Commanding co-host duties as always is my hype man Adam Skolnick, an activist and veteran journalist perhaps best known as David Goggins' Can't Hurt Me co-author. Adam has written about adventure sports, environmental issues and civil rights for outlets such as The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men’s Health. He is the author of One Breath and is currently hard at work on a novel.

Some of the many topics explored in today's conversation include:

  • Ag-gag laws, animal agriculture surveillance, and media weaponization;
  • the documentary 'A Life On Our Planet' — the legacy of David Attenborough;
  • The problem of moderating social media content veracity & the impending election impact;
  • thoughts on climate consciousness and social entrepreneurship.

In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

  • How do you set healthy boundaries with alcohol?
  • How do you navigate your social life alcohol-free?
  • How do you break into endurance sports and create a more adventurous lifestyle?

Thank you to Cameron from Oahu, John from London, and Greg from Colorado for your questions. If you want your query discussed, drop it on our Facebook Page, or better yet leave a voicemail at (424) 235-4626.
