Josh and Uncle Greg discuss what’s been sparking curiosity in their lives (1:05). That’s horror movies for Josh (2:02), and taking pictures in the dark for Uncle Greg (11:25). Our main topic is Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” (17:06), we talk about winning first THEN going to war, and the importance of knowing yourself and your enemy. After the break, we tackle strategic deception and the importance of keeping your “sword” sharp. (38:18) In Josh’s Dad Corner we find his daughter becoming a leader (or maybe a tyrant) (57:07) and we wrap up with Uncle Greg quoting Emerson for his thought of the week (1:01:03).
