Join your host Steven Menking as he returns for a third year of On the Objective broadcasts. The inaugural discussion of 2019 is with author James Walton. James is now the proud owner of Prepper Broadcasting Network, and the interview focuses on his aspirations for the platform. One major goal is to redefine the connotation of the ‘prepper’ label. We all have to think seriously about our decisions and take practical steps to mitigate risks as best we can, but culture has rendered that mentality as belonging only to individuals on the fringe. These are pivotal distinctions that need to be made and conversations that need to be had in the year ahead. Thanks for joining us On the Objective!

After spending a month looking into blockchain technology, tonight we will turn back to the dynamics of the current events landscape. In many ways it seems like we are stuck in the same place with respect to the dominant narratives, trends, and themes. In other ways we’re seeing some material developments on key issues. How do we know which version of current events is accurate? Is President Trump on a fast track to impeachment or an overhaul that leads to prosperity? Stepping back, how should we structure our analysis through the lens of uncertainty. This poorly understood area of decision making and critical thinking rarely gets attention because of its seemingly arcane underpinnings in probabilistic mathematics. However, it is both useful and necessary to understand core principles about uncertainty so that we can proceed through the morass of information in a more informed manner.
Join us for another engaging and informative conversation tonight at 8:00pm!
