Fan Mail Friday #136 | Hamster Wheel of Hate

Time for Fan Mail Friday, where we’ll be answering your questions and dropping some knowledge and feedback to help you kick the weekend off right.

If you’re new to The Art of Charm Podcast, this isn’t a great place to start. Most of our content is more in-depth and longer format. Listen to recent guests Too $hort, Russell Brand, Noah Kagan, or Dorie Clark for a better idea of our regular programming.

Also make sure to check out our Best Of picks or the Fundamentals Toolbox episodes. There, we’ve got the fundamentals of body language and nonverbal communication, attraction, negotiation, networking, and everything else we teach here at The Art of Charm.

Let’s cut to it! In this episode:

  • How do you get people to speak up when you’re hearing impaired (and understand you’re not flirting with them because you’re staring at their lips when you’re just trying to read them)?
  • What can a suffering veteran with seemingly no options do to emerge from the dark place where he’s found himself?
  • Is there a way to make a transition to friendship after a romantic rejection?
  • Parents aren’t going to want to hear this as it applies to their teenagers, but sometimes college really can wait.
  • A listener offers advice and resources to someone trying to leave a religion that intertwines with every aspect of their life.
  • Is anger an effective long term motivational tool?
  • Documentary of the Week: Vice News Tonight
  • Quick shoutouts to Class-less in New Jersey and James Penn in Vienna (who wants to meet more AoC-listening locals)!
  • Have any questions, comments, or stories you’d like to share with us? Drop us a line at [email protected]!
  • Check out Jordan’s (@TheArtofCharmother show: The Forbes List, and Jason’s (@jpdefother show: Grumpy Old Geeks.

Jordan Harbinger has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East, and speaks several languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war zones, and been kidnapped -- twice. He’ll tell you the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation. Here at The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with students and clients.
