TR 130: 5 Quick Thoughts on Belgrade, Serbia

In the latest episode of Troublesome Radio (now on YouTube!), I dive into some quick thoughts on Belgrade, Serbia.

I spent 15 days in Serbia recently, and while I enjoyed my time, I just don't think the Balkans mesh with me as well as other places such as Ukraine, Poland, etc. Something about the region just doesn't click with my personality.

To hear some of the crazy Serbian stories, I'd suggest you tune in to this podcast episode with my friend Papi Rico:

The people of Belgrade, and Serbia has a whole, are fantastic and great folks. Very warm and welcoming, and no, they don't hate Americans (I do mention in the video which political affiliation they prefer you to have...).

Finally, Belgrade and Serbia as a whole are quite affordable.

TR 124: How to Make Friends in 2018

In TR #124, I discuss the difference between making friends as a kid and as an adult.

Also mentioned in the show:

Rough draft of show notes:

When I was a kid…

- Didn’t fit in with the jocks, even though I was pretty good across all sports…I was too smart, got too of grades, didn’t cause trouble in class
- The nerdy kids were nice to met, but I didn’t really get along with them either. I much preferred sports to doing nerdy stuff like playing Magic the gathering or doing puzzles for hours
- For this reason, I just never seemed to fit in for a long time. I almost had to dumb myself down for the jocks or just act intersted in shit I wasn’t with the nerds

It took me a long time to come to terms with all of this, probably much longer than it should have. And even more, it took time to be able to ARTICULATE it and explain it in concise words

But let’s move on from that and apply it towards adulthood.

The thing is, as kids we’re all friends. Everyone wants to talk to everyone. No one is shy

So what the hell happens over time?

People stop trying to fit in anywhere, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s just how it is. But ultimately if you move to new places, you have to make new friends

But people don’t judge, most people are too scared to actually speak up against someone they don’t like. Whereas on the other hand, kids are not quite as scared to do this. I actually had a girl flat-out say in middle school (went to a private school) that she didn’t want me coming to the graduation party she was hosting.

She spread it to the wrong people and the venue actually got changed, since it was actually an official school event

See what I mean?

People actually get nicer as they get older.

So the key to fitting in and making friends as an adult is not being afraid to make the first move, because you’re going to have to. No one is going to bite your head off. Almost everyone in adulthood needs more friends and would like to expand their social circle.

TR 122: The Rollo Tomassi Interview

In episode #122 of the show, I'm proud to welcome the great Rollo Tomassi to the show to discuss his life's work over the last 16+ years.

The outline for the show is below, although we go far and beyond the scope of just these things...

To listen to his 21 Convention lecture, go here.

Rollo's books are also required reading and are available at the links below:




Intro: Brief intro to your history of writing, who you are, and what the goal of Rational Male is ultimately.


Changing Times: 

- If I’m not mistaken, you first started writing on the SoSuave forum way back when...

-What was the landscape of the market at that time?

- How much have you seen things ACCELERATE in time since then; how does it impact men taking their first steps in the world?

(Ie perhaps your old advice would have been to spin plates, but now with rape charges, etc, etc. - maybe this isn’t so feasible. Instead, how should men adapt?)

- And, how much more will they accelerate (seems to me it has picked up very drastically in the last ~2 years).


What’s Next?

- Do you think there will be a “market correction” at some point, where some girls begin to realize they’ve been sold lies about having it all?

- Or will they continue to double down?

- Finally, for men who want to actually have a family and some semibalance of the old “normal” life, what would you recommend? I can chime in here about how different it is abroad and the general expectations.

- As a man in the West, I think it is becoming expected that you do more and more with very little reward - the burden of performance, so to be speak. How do men come to terms with this, especially when the “reward” is quite meager in the scope of things.
