THE MIKHAILA PETERSON PODCAST

Episode 10: Inciting Courage with Dave Rubin

“All the people that we admire in the world, every hero in every movie that you love, what do they do? They say what they think. And yet, we live in a time, where if you live in the west […] you are extraordinarily free. And yet, we’re the ones that are silencing ourselves”

Dave Rubin and Mikhaila discuss Dave’s experience touring with Jordan Peterson, the health detriments of stress, being courageous as a rule, the difficulties of controversy, and Dave reveals a new announcement.
