In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

I was gonna text, but it’s probably going to be long. What are some things you used to believe that you no longer believe. What made you change your mind? It could strength related, or just life related, I don’t care.

John, Luke, and Tex to discuss mindsets, opinions, and views of the world they once believed, about training and life.

    In terms of the internet & social media, you should consider reading “The Shallows” by Nicholas G. Carr. It explains why everyone is becoming less intelligent & brain depleted. People are evolving away from a literate mind. The brain changes based on the technology available.

    P.S. Spiderman stole the quote from Voltaire.
