Q: What even is a Sweet Peach?
A: Well, it sounds sort of innocent and also maybe a little dirty, and those are both okay with me. It's supposed to be a type of person who is kind, honest and genuine, which is what I hope to be. For a laugh though, you should look it up on urban dictionary. It's pretty good.
Q: Recommendation for podcasts, youtube, audiobooks, etc.
PODCASTS: Dan Carlin’s hardcore history, a lot of his other stuff. Sawbones is an excellent medical history podcast. There’s a podcast discussing historical revolutions called “Revolutions” by Mike Duncan. “StarTalk” with Neil deGrasse Tyson is some good sciencey stuff. A lot of people like Joe Rogan, but I’m still making up my mind. YOUTUBE: Extra credits, Extra SciFi, and Extra History are all excellent, animated breakdowns of a ton of topics. Philosophy Tube is pretty weird, but has good information about philosophical and social issues. “Shaun” on youtube is a cheeky British boy who likes talking about dumb positions and hateful videos on the internets. PragerU makes short and visually appealing videos that offer perspective and understanding of some pretty right-wingey ideas. “The Great War” is super great. “CrashCourse” is excellent, particularly their History videos with John Green. “Feature History” is pretty neato. “Forgotten Weapons” is a nice, non-political channel about firearms, weapons and warfare throughout history. I also enjoy John Oliver, Hasan Minhaj, and I loved me some John Stewart back in the day. Those three are always up to something, which is cool. Vice News and other Vice media offer some unorthodox stories and often show journalists in combat zones and getting kidnapped and stuff. Oh, and Myles Power is a conspiracy-debunking badass. BOOKS & AUDIOBOOKS: Lies My Teacher Told Me, classics like 1984, Animal Farm, Overthrow by Stephen Kinzer is fascinating. A (Brief) History of Vice is entertaining and about intoxicants. There’s also plenty of good and very readable textbooks out there like Political Ideologies and the Democratic Ideal, (Ball, Dagger Niel) or Ways of the World (Strayer, Nelson) and Business Ethics (Ferrell. Fraedrich, Ferrell). Existentialism by Thomas R. Flynn is helpful and encouraging. Basically any collection of primary source philosophical or political writings is awesome. RADIO: NPR is pretty good, there’s some local NPR derivative channels that are pretty good to listen to. I’ve had some great conversations regarding Rush Limbaugh and some of the topics he discusses, so he might be worth some perspective.
Feel free to ask it in our contact page or on twitter. Sweet Peach Revolution wants to be an open book, clear and communicative. Happy to entertain inquiries.
