Increasingly, it seems to be that we’re losing much of the common sense that we, collectively, once possessed. Common sense has been replaced with quick sounds bites, “clapbacks” on social media, and manufactured outraged designed to drive clicks and capture eyeballs and attention.
But my guest today is using his voice, social media, and any other platform available to share his common sense, rational approach to some of the world’s most pressing concerns. His name is Zuby and I know many of you are already very familiar with his work. Today, we talk about the dangers of tribalism, the motives and intentions of our government overlords and elites, how to have real conversations that actually drive change, why empathy is crucial in dialogue, and how to recapture common sense in uncommon times.
“Being a powerful communicator…is rare and is a little bit of a super power.” Tweet That— Zuby
My guest and friend, Zuby, is back on the podcast today and, since we had him on almost two years ago, his reach and impact have only grown exponentially. We talk about why that is but to give you an idea, he has over 500,000 followers on Twitter and nearly 1,000,000 across all of his social media platforms.
Zuby is a graduate of Oxford University, a rapper, podcast host, entrepreneur, and public speaker and, during today’s conversation, you’re going to hear why his message continues to resonate with the masses. Enjoy.
“There is always going to be a trade off between freedom and liberty and at least the perception of safety and security.” Tweet That— Zuby
