Parenting - What is Right and Wrong?
As a young person enters the new adventure of becoming a parent, they are confronted with challenges they can never be truly prepared for, no matter how much knowledge they acquired beforehand. Making mistakes and learning from them in practise seems to be the only way for us to progress, be it as children or as parents.

William: Alright. Hello everyone. We're back. This is William and Stephen from whoamipodcast.com Today we want to speak about the topic that we left open in last episode, and that is about parenting. It kind of was a natural successor of last episode, when we talked about early childhood development, about sexual identity and your place in your family situation and society. And now we want to talk about the role of the parent and the child, the dynamics between the two. Steven and I are both not parents. But we have thought about this topic, and as always we have more questions than answers. But we would like to share those with you. You can comment on our discussion on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, whatever.

Steven: So we've been directly involved with the family side of things. And then we've both been amongst various different cultures and people where we've had the opportunity to interact with both parents and children on a weekly basis, really, through education. I went to a summer camp in America, and with about six or seven year olds, I think it was, for three months, and then interacting with parents when they came by. And there's plenty of I guess experience there.
Ep. 23: Left and Right, Unite! Unite!
Today Steven and William discuss their views on the political division into the left and right wings. They argue that this differentiation is unnecessary and artificial, as both groups have much to offer, but to solve different problems. This insight underlines how they should complement each other, rather than get...
Ep. 22: Intuition is Perception via the Unconcious
Today Falk Kastell helps me better understand what intuition is and how it can work in every-day life. William's heavy intellectual propensity makes it a challenge for him to come to terms with subconscious signals and relying on them to make decisions. Let's see whether Falk can assist him in...

Ep. 20: When will we realize that you cannot eat money?
Falk and William discuss the current state of the world in terms of the progress of technology vs. human connection and respect for nature, being attentive to intutions vs. being driven by cerebral messaging, praising the economy as humanity's highest good vs. personal relationships and development, and many other things....
