For today's episode, I'm joined by my good friend, whom I've known for most of my life, Jeremy Hoemsen.

He's lives on Vancouver Island, in Canada, teaches kung fu, he and his wife Stana have built a beautiful home together, grow a lot of their own food, and keep themselves quite busy improving upon their self-reliance in the rural area of East Sooke, on the south end of the island.

We touched on a lot of topics today, and I'll have to have him back again soon to talk more about the specifics of life at the homestead, his active support of veterans, and other things we didn't have time for today. We discussed the beginnings of our friendship, how life has changed throughout the decades, and went into some of the perhaps controversial issues of our time, through the lenses of philosophy, psychology, sociology, politics, and more.

Thanks for stopping by. Let's get to it...
