Episode 83: Don’t Watch This Podcast with Sam Lacrosse
Joining us today is Sam Lacrosse, writer of Don’t Read This Blog and author of Value Economics. Well, I haven’t read it yet, but I’m excited to have him on the show! Sam lives in Austin Texas and today we’re talking about his blog and opinions. His bio spells it out best:
I am here to write about ideas. Ideas about business, entrepreneurship, growth, history, human nature, improvement, pop culture, psychology, self-actualization, and more. Every opinion I have on these is mine, and each delivery of that opinion will be completely authentic and honest with who I am as a person. Some people will love it, some people will hate it.
It is my goal to encourage disagreement, discussion, and thought. To instigate and provoke ideas about topics that I think are important. And to maybe make your reading of these posts not a complete waste of your time. As quoted by Mark Manson, “You cannot be a powerful and life-changing presence to some people without being a joke or embarrassment to others.”
