Viable Underdogs’ First Book (Link in Description)

October 25, 2019

UPDATE (February, 2020):

Check out the Viable Underdogs blog (www.viableunderdogs.com) for more books and material that cover our proposed solutions to the Sustainability Crisis, and other global (Type 1) concerns we have identified. It is recommended you start by reading the book, Renegades of Disruption, rather than the book outlined in this episode, Uncage Human Ingenuity. An outline of all the Viable Underdogs material, which includes free PDF download links to all the books (including a written version of the Podcast) is available here:

Until more traction is gained with any of these ideas, there will be no new episodes. This 'Podcast-Audiobook-Unfreeze-Chain-Letter' requires your help to spread these ideas if you answer 'Yes' to the questions I continuously ask:

Are you buying what I'm selling?

Episode 42 (Technically Episode -5):

Today, we chat briefly about the Vatican's Global Crisis Message. You can read more here:

https://www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2019-06/pope-declares-climate-emergency.html

We also discuss how some of our media corespondents have been impeding the spreading of this Global Crisis Message by 'Unintentional Misdirection.'

FYI, the Vatican has been publishing these stories for a long time. They are not late to this party. 

No, no. Don’t get up. I’ll fix journalism myself.

United Nations Crisis Message (From 2018)

United Nations Crisis Message (From 2018)

September 8, 2019

Episode 40 (or -3 seeing as how we are now spinning our tires):

In Sept, 2018 (Almost exactly one year ago), the United Nations announced a global CRISIS MESSAGE. Seven months later, in May 2019, the news outlet, The Guardian, followed suit and has since been calling it a crisis. 

Here is the United Nation's Crisis Message:

Here is The Guardian's Crisis Message:

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/may/17/why-the-guardian-is-changing-the-language-it-uses-about-the-environment

It is currently Sept, 2019. A FULL YEAR after the crisis message was sent from the U.N.

How many more months, or worse, years, will we have to wait until all news outlets also follow suit!? 

WE HAVE A COMMUNICATION PROBLEM!

Please, please, please, please, forward this episode, podcast, and crisis message on. 

We desperately want to start working on fixing this problem.

Episode 39:

This episode is a ten minute short explanation that outlines what the entire podcast is about. This is the last episode I plan on posting if this gains zero traction. 

Here is a guide to navigate this podcast (also known as my Research Paper):

Episode 38: Explains the reason for this podcast and covers the $5000 Sustainability Challenge details. 

Episode 36: Is the Executive Summary and Table of Contents indicating which episode pertains to which points I am making. OR you can listen to the episodes starting from Episode 1 in sequential order. 

Here is a link to the video that also explains the general idea of this Podcast / Research Paper:

Episode 38: 

Apologies for the noise distortion in this episode. It gets better as the episode progresses. It is the ONLY episode that has this problem. We explained in Episode 39 (which we strongly recommend listening to first) why the distortion was not corrected. 

As well, around the one-hour mark, I incorrectly quoted the United Nations. It should say "defining issue" instead of "defining moment" twice. My bad. Here is a link to the actual quote:

If you're new here, feel free to skip from the 7 min to 30 min in the episode. Afterward, you can check out Episode 36 (Summary of the Podcast) or start with Episode 1.

Viable Underdogs’ Executive Summary

Episode 36:

Or, we guess, technically Episode 0, since it’s our Summary Episode. Today, we wrap together our entire sustainability diagnostic which comprised all of the first 34 episodes. And, most importantly, we ask our new listeners, as well as those who have been here from the start, a question.

FYI: Episode 37, our 'Proposal' episode will not be uploaded. We have forwarded these strategies, all of our info, and the transcript for the episode onto others. We've done everything we can. This is now their story. 

EDIT: The Question we ask you is just after the 35 minute mark.

Episode 35:

The diagnostic phase of our podcast is complete. In this episode, we instruct you on how to solve a good portion of the communication problem we have identified in previous episodes. Once the lines of communication have been repaired, real change can begin.

Episode 34: 

Today, we’re telling you the story of 'Viable Underdogs.' Well, this consultancy firm, not when we use the term to refer to humanity. We hope that if you learn where this idea came from, then it may artificially accelerate the adoption curve. It’s completely understandable for some to be skeptical.   

FYI: We're eager to be completed, so we will be uploading Episodes 35 and 36 shortly as well.

Episode 33:

Today we’re exploring our world’s organizational framework in order to explain how it could be possible that nations at government level are in agreement on matters like climate change, while it appears for a large part that individuals within these nations are not. 

Apologies that the episode picture looks a bit like a pentagram. This was not intentional, but it is the best visual representation we could come up with.
