"The new podcast is worth listening to.
It alludes to a lot of what the site owner has been talking about, and is offering here, but at a price: you have to create your own mens' circle, one that will challenge you and in those challenges bond…"
"Very well said. From what I read in the Year End article, it seems like Brett intends to put more of a focus into Strenuous Life. I can't imagine AoM wouldn't take a hit of some kind. Like you, I scoff at nearly all paid…"
