486: Nina Schick | Deepfakes and the Coming Infocalypse

Nina Schick (@NinaDSchick) specializes in how technology is transforming geopolitics and society in the 21st century. She is the author of Deepfakes: The Coming Infocalypse. What We Discuss with Nina Schick: What deepfakes are and how they're created using technology that is getting exponentially more sophisticated every year and accessible to anyone. How deepfakes go beyond novelty and into dangerous territory occupied by blackmailers, propagandists, terrorists, conspiracy theorists, and other unsavory ne'er-do-wells who profit by making the rest of us doubt what we can trust as reality. Why deepfakes are so much more concerning than reality-bending manipulations of the past. The potential positive uses of AI-assisted deepfake technology that will change our world as dramatically as the advent of the Internet. How we can discern between real photo, video, or audio footage and imposter deepfakes to avoid being duped by 21st-century technoshysters. And much more...

331: How to Work from Home Effectively | Feedback Friday

Due to the recent COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, many of us are now required to work from home. As a team of people who have been working from home for more than a decade, we have some advice for those wondering how to work from home effectively during a pandemic -- and, of course, lots more on this Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/331. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Since we've been doing it for so long, we've got some pointers for working from home effectively for those of you out there who might be doing it for the first time during this pandemic! Your career is extremely specialized and your choices for moving to another company are slim to none. And frankly, you don’t even want to do it anymore, but you can't afford to take a pay cut to start over. What should you do? Your boss gets annoyed when you stand up and jog in place for five minutes every hour to stay limber after sitting for so long. Is taking such a short break really a demonstration of a lapsed work ethic, or is there more going on here? How should you respond to random people on LinkedIn who reach out to network -- even when you have no friends in common? You don't mind being helpful, but how do you weed out the timewasters? While you do have general social anxiety, you find yourself especially shy and less talkative around your attractive friends. Why is this, and how might you get past it? At a young age, it came out that your two older brothers were sexually abusing your younger sister. They were sent away for years, essentially breaking up your family. Now you're all adults and working on your mental and emotional issues. Where should you start seeking help? A quick shout out to Ashley Jensen, who sold her family's medical device company using some of the things she learned on this show!

444: Jordan & Gabe | Kidnap Me Twice, Shame on Me

There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, "Kidnap me once, shame on — shame on you. Kidnap me — you can't get kidnapped again." But Jordan doesn't know any better because he comes from Michigan, so he's actually been kidnapped twice. Here, Jordan tells the story of that second time. Here, We Talk About the Time Jordan Got Kidnapped in Serbia: Kidnapping victims don't always live to tell the tale. The reason Jordan is still alive after being kidnapped (twice) is due to the fact he saw security expert Gavin de Becker on Oprah discussing what to do in just such a seemingly unlikely situation. After almost getting kidnapped in Mexico in 2000, how did Jordan find himself in a position to get kidnapped in Serbia in 2004? How did Jordan escape whatever dire fate was surely awaiting him at the dreaded second location? What are your best chances for staying alive if you ever find yourself in a similar, unenviable condition? Connect with Jordan on Twitter at @JordanHarbinger and Instagram at @jordanharbinger.

What We Discuss with Robert Greene: Why you can't monumentally improve your life by modifying your behavior if you don't understand what causes such behavior. Why it's liberating to understand that the reason other people react to you in whatever way they do has more to do with them and their own baggage than you and yours. How oversimplifying the impression you have of someone robs you of the ability to relate to them beyond a surface level -- and what you can do to change the game. Why your lower nature seems to be the default you'll fall into without effort and what it takes to tap into the potential of your higher nature. The difference between active and passive envy, where envy comes from, why it's so often destructive, and how you can flip envy to your benefit. And much more...

What We Discuss with Russell Brand: How the concept of the twelve-step program is applicable to all forms of attachment as a tool for transition. Why does it usually take a serious crisis to spur people toward seeking help for their addictions? Addiction is really the result of reaching for something external that already exists internally — but exists in a place that’s either unknown or inaccessible.

304: How to Avoid Addiction to Study Drugs | Feedback Friday

You're in your thirties, and although you've had reasonable success running your own business, you've always believed that you were lazy and unmotivated. You recently got diagnosed with ADHD and prescribed Adderall, and everything changed for the better. You're finally a hard worker, don't get distracted easily, and finish things you start. It's been a huge lifesaver and a huge boost to your self-confidence. After hearing Jordan talk about his negative experiences with Adderall in high school on the Darren Prince episode, it got you concerned. Your brother has been using Adderall for years, and said something that worried you. While on vacation, he lost his prescription and felt the need to find a doctor who could write him an emergency prescription. He regularly has to restrict towards the end of the month to make sure he doesn't run out, which signals he's taking extra doses. Should you be concerned for your brother getting addicted? Are you at risk of becoming dependent if you stay on it for years? We'll talk about this and much more on this latest episode of Feedback Friday!

So what's the best way for an officer to build rapport quickly during, for example, the brief interaction of a traffic stop?
