Disinformation. Trolling. Conspiracies. Social media pile-ons. Campus intolerance. On the surface, these recent phenomenons appear to have little in common. But together, they are driving an epistemic crisis: a multi-front challenge to America’s ability to distinguish fact from fiction and elevate truth above falsehood. What is truth? Is truth the …
 
“Escapism is tempting...but dangerous. We think, when frenzied or fraught, an exotic getaway will be the cure. But inevitably, the rush of travel wears off and the pretty pictures fade from your phone’s “recent” album.” Ryan explains why you should create the future that you really want, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast. *** If you enjoyed this week’…
 
“One of the things you figure out quickly with kids, and as we’ve talked about a bunch over on our Daily Dad email and podcast, is that there is always a reason they’re behaving a certain way. Your kid is acting crazy because they’re tired. They’re having a meltdown because actually they’re starting to get sick. Bedtime isn’t happening because napt…
 
What do you think about when you think of art? Is it famous paintings and sculptures? Or perhaps it's some modern abstract compilations? Actually, art is a very broad term. It's hard to define, truly. Perhaps we can say it is "the expression of beauty" or "the expression of the soul." In any case, art should play at least some part in your life. In…

We live once and therefore live one lifetime. You can try and extend your life through healthy lifestyle choices.

Not only can we get live multiple lifetimes by …
 
“Nobody wants to get sick. We don’t want food poisoning. We don’t want the flu. We don’t want COVID-19. This is why we protect our immune system, wash our hands, take care of ourselves. Good. Health is important. But what about, as the great Phoebe Bridgers put it, emotional motion sickness?” Ryan explains why you should build up your emotional res…
 
What's more powerful: nature or nurture? Is it always in the blood, or can we wash it out in the water? Fortunately for us, modern neuroscience sheds some much-needed light on this question.

“The virus doesn’t care. It doesn’t care that you were just about to open your first retail shop. It doesn’t care that you love visiting your grandmother.
