#440: The 3 Great Untruths That Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure
If you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve likely seen headlines about the tumultuous atmosphere on many college campuses in the United States, which primarily centers around what is and isn’t okay to say or express. The interesting thing is that not too long ago, it was the students who were protesting against the administration placing controls on free speech. But a few years ago, my guest noticed that things had gotten flipped: the students had started protesting that administrators weren't doing enough to limit speech. What happened?Well, my guest explores the answer to that question in a book he co-authored with Jonathan Haidt entitled The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure. His name is Greg Lukianoff and he’s the president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. Today on the show, Greg tries to explain what’s going on on college campuses with the trigger warnings, microaggressions, protests, and sometimes violent clashes between social justice warriors and far-right provocateurs. He argues that there are 3 great untruths that have become woven into childhood and education that are leading the rising generation astray. Greg gets into where these untruths come from and how they're creating a culture of "safetyism" that's not only affecting intellectual discourse but the normal process of maturation.If you’re looking for some thoughtful, non-polemical insights about some of the craziness you see going on at college campuses, this episode is for you.Get the show notes at aom.is/coddling.
#437: Don't Make Me Pull Over! A History of the Road Trip
If you grew up in America in the 1970s and '80s, a vacation with your family likely involved piling in a car with your parents and siblings and being stuck with them for eight or more hours on the open road with little other than each other to keep yourselves entertained and sane. Entire movies were made about The Great American Road Trip. Yet this world has slowly faded away without our hardly noticing thanks to cheaper airfare and advances in technology and convenience.My guest today set out to document what he calls the Golden Age of Road Tripping before it vanishes from our collective memory. His name his Rich Ratay and in his book Don't Make Me Pull Over! he walks readers through the history of the American family road trip. Today on the show, Rich and I discuss how it was actually bicycles that kickstarted America's interstate highway system, when automotive road tripping really started taking off, and all the iconic businesses that built up around the nation's new pastime, including Stuckey's convenience stores, motels, and attractions like the world's largest frying pan. Along the way, Rich shares stories from his family road trips growing up as a kid, particularly his memories of his dad taking on the role of leader, protector, and refueling-stop-minimizer during their expeditions. We end our conversation discussing the decline of the family road trip, what we miss out on when we take a plane to our destination, and why Millennial parents are ushering in the return of road trips to American culture.This episode is definitely a nice drive down memory lane, and great one to listen to as you hit the open road.Get the show notes at aom.is/dontmakemepullover.

Best episode I have heard yet. Been a listener for just under a year. Thank you for creating this episode. AOM is a great program and the website is equally great.

Basically an hour of someone explaining that modern college kids are entitled cunts. Tell us something we don't know.

Bruce Chestnutten He does discuss some options for engaging with speakers and viewpoints that someone might disagree with or find unhelpful, without sneering or dismissing them. So, you know, maybe you could learn something.

hmm..from what I remember, the polls were about /Who/ the polled were voting for, /not/ who they thought were going to win. The pundits were the ones extrapolating the data of who was going to win by viewing the polled as % sample voting public. I believe this about 85.574% 😉

I've listened to countless hours of podcasts from many stations but this one hit home. Thank God I'm not the only one with the nice problem.

This guy sounds like he should be on the art of womanliness. He spends far too much energy and money worrying about what other people think about him. It's much more important to be yourself above anything. This is the first AOM podcast that had me shaking my head.

Dustin H There is no tone with text, so please note I say this as I would to a friend. Being the type of gentleman this guy is taking about is a lost art, which to me fits nicely with all things Art of Manliness. I have a friend who thinks every guy who wears something besides tennis shoes is gay. Being a man has erroneously become disassociated with the gentler arts described in this podcast. I encourage you to give further thought to what he says

Dustin H I had the same thought, first episode I've heard that just seemed off the mark.
