Adam opens the show with the standard intro, Drew is sharing how he’s been trying to explain to people that the drug manufacturers may have been duplicitous in the opiate crisis but they’re not trying to kill people nor spread the epidemic.
Drew is explaining how the most-evil part of this is connected to Suboxone, that’s the wolf in sheep’s clothing, Drew is saying it’s not evil but the government is in bed with them and explains how they’ve been granted another 7 years of exclusivity with the patent.
Adam is making a point about the current era of being “woke” and needing to blame the man for things you don’t like.
Adam says don’t rely on the government nor big pharma to run your lives, try to keep their footprints to as minimal a space as possible in your life.
Adam and Drew are talking about the paternalistic element and the desire among humans to take the shittier road that’s familiar over the possibility of the unknown, even if it could be good.
Adam is now asking how come being an entrepreneur was never discussed in school when he was a kid, Drew thinks they’re talking about it too much now.
Adam’s point is you can’t expect people who punched out of life a long time ago to preach how to succeed in the world to kids, Adam has a “vegans teaching your kids about nutrition”, when would steak come up?
Drew jokes about Adam homeschooling his kids, Adam is making a point about people who have dropped out of life preaching to kids, what do you think they’re filling their heads with.
Drew says finally there is real talk about trade skills and education.
