Destroying Dad-Bod Culture And “Conspiracy” Theories Vs. Critical Thinking with Matt Roda – EPS. 030, 031

Is Mediocrity Ruining America?

In this episode, I’m joined by Matthew Roda. Matt is the founder and co-owner of RODA marketing and – both digital marketing companies. He is also an author, fitness enthusiast, ultra runner, freedom-loving patriot, and dedicated family man. 

Matt’s life centers around his wife, Helen, and his two precious daughters – Caroline (3), and Amelia(1 and 1/2). When he isn’t spending time with his family, or working on his businesses, you can find him in his home gym training for upcoming ultra events, which include 50-mile races. 

In part 1, we deep-dive into Matt’s improbable backstory and the “dad-bod” culture along with its negative effects on society. On a related note, we explain how the celebration of mediocrity leads to bigger societal problems and a change in the definition of health. And how understanding marketing and psychology makes it easy to see how many people could be manipulated by carefully crafted headlines.

In part 2, we go further into many of the concepts we touched on in part 1, while also diving head-first into several of today’s “hot-button” issues.
