Are you unsure how you should feel when you spot a straight-talking blue collar guy in a flannel sipping a cappuccino? Are you alarmed by the skyrocketing costs of the higher education you’ve been sold into believing your kids will need in order to make something of themselves? Does the bromide of “follow your passion” give you more of an ulcer than a pillow of comfort? Are you hesitant to make yourself heard on the Internet (or even real life) for fear of being shut down by some know-it-all blowhard who can’t resist telling you how wrong you are?
On this episode we talk to Mike Rowe, the host and narrator known for his work on Dirty Jobs, Somebody’s Gotta Do It, The Way I Heard It Podcast, and Returning the Favor, and the author of The Way I Heard It. We discuss everything from the vertigo-inducing debt of higher education to multi-millionaire plumbers to the purity of first takes to the idea-stifling side effects of correction culture.
What We Discuss with Mike Rowe:
⚒️ The kind of cognitive dissonance Mike believes our country needs right now, and the tropes we could afford to grasp more loosely.
⚒️ How the prevailing desire among correction culture commandos to prove others wrong on the Internet stifles our ability to exchange ideas freely.
⚒️ Why Mike eschews second takes in favor of presenting his audience with the authentic moments they trust him to share.
⚒️ How Mike’s thrifty (and crafty) parents suckered him into feeling sorry for rich people when he was growing up.
⚒️ Why we shouldn’t view a blue collar career pursuit as a cautionary tale in comparison to the lifelong debt likely incurred by chasing a four-year degree these days.
⚒️ And much more…
