Fan Mail Friday #130 | The Other Guy in the Glass

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 Charlamagne Tha God, Mark Divine, Richard Clarke, and Garry Kasparov 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:

  • When you’re a young female moving to a new city, is looking for roommates on Craigslist advisable?
  • Thanks to Jeff McCollister (@the1hatter) for giving us a proper source for The Guy in the Glass poem we talked about last week. It was written in 1934 by Peter “Dale” Wimbrow Sr., who was not a death row inmate — in spite of what the Internet tries to tell us. Regardless, it’s still very powerful.
  • Tipping isn’t just good manners — it’s good social dynamics.
  • If you’re going to change your dietary habits, make sure it’s for the right reasons and not because you were swayed by an AoC Challenge critical-thinking exercise!
  • What’s wrong with being sexy?
  • You shouldn’t start a podcast unless you don’t care if people listen.
  • Documentary of the Week: Icarus
  • Quick shoutouts to Colin and Runa Ludthard and AoC sister Lida in Sweden!
  • 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.
