Brandon Reese & Daniel Blum - Why Human Experiences Matter - #087

What makes our own human experiences matter?

The way we see the world and go through life depends completely on those experiences. Life is built from them. And On The Bus, those experiences never end. Join your favorite bus hosts, Daniel and Brandon, in their back and forth on what living means to them. How experiences can define you. And learn about their own philosophies, perspectives and complete outlook on the world. We guarantee there's something new you'll pick up on the way.

In this episode we talk about:

  • How Brandon and Daniel perceive the world - from questioning the very concept of time to how we're living in other people's once thought up plans turned reality.

  • The most captivating parts of the first seasons of Game Of Thrones and what they've picked up from rewatching them recently.

  • The weird phenomena that globalization has caused when uniting completely different cultures from opposing ends of the moral spectrum.

  • The kinds of unique human experiences that you can only find in VR

  • Entrepreneurial advice on setting boundaries, getting out there and understanding your value.

  • The dangers that come from social media and making things look too easy.

  • And much, much more.

Enjoy the ride!
