Episode Summary

If you’ve been a loyal listener you’ve likely picked up on this already… I consider myself an iconoclast by nature, meaning I’m a nonconformist– a questioner. I value personal Sovereignty and Freedom.

The Wealthy Wellthy podcast is about busting myths and taking things apart with people who see the world through a different lens. Most of the guests I’ve had on the show are also iconoclasts– counter-culture thinkers who challenge the narrative and status quo in their fields.

Personally, I never want to stop having challenging conversations with brave people who, like me, will always be willing to change their minds and listen to others’ points of view.

In this episode I interviewed Dave Rubin, author of the New York Times bestseller, “Don’t Burn this Book.” Dave is the creator and host of The Rubin Report, the most-watched talk show about free speech and big ideas on YouTube with 1.2 million YouTube subscribers and over 275 million views. I like to think of his show as similar to mine, in that he wants to interview anyone and everyone open-minded enough to have a challenging and enriching conversation.

A former progressive turned classical liberal, he speaks to millions all over the world– and he’s very entertaining, because his background was stand-up comedy. Originally from Long Island, New York, he currently lives in Los Angeles with his husband, David, and their dog, Emma.

And if you’d like to know more about what “yours truly” has been up to lately, I invite you to visit SovereigntyAcademy.com.

Again, please enjoy my interview with Dave Rubin, whose birthday happens to be on the release date of this podcast. Happy Birthday, Dave!

“We stuck it to the King!”

“To be sovereign is to be human.”

“You’re an individual first and everything grows from that”

 “Let’s get the roaring 20’s back!”

“Tell your truth. “

“We have a huge huge problem with big tech. “

“We are all playing a fixed game “


“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
-Dr. Joseph Goebbels (unconfirmed quote)
“Good propaganda does not need to lie; indeed it may not lie. It has no reason to fear the truth. It is a mistake to believe that people cannot take the truth. They can. It is only a matter of presenting the truth to people in a way that they will be able to understand. A propaganda that lies proves that it has a bad cause. It cannot be successful in the long run.”
-Dr. Joseph Goebbels
