If you have been around Good Looking Loser and similar communities, you've probably heard of Mike from Danger & Play. If not, absolutely bookmark his site.
Either way, I want to tell you about Mike.
In the past month, I've gotten to know him on a personal level. (no homo)
I consider Mike a role model.
I don't throw around the term "role model" very often.
In fact, I don't even think I've used it on the blog at all.
Mike is a role model in every sense of the word, praise of the highest caliber.
Not just for younger guys that are into all the immature stuff we talk about on Good Looking Loser.
But to me.
Mike is exactly where I want to be when I turn 37.
Fun life, free time, hot supportive girlfriend, wealthy and still looking good.
Financially and emotionally secure.
Running shirtless sprints on the Santa Monica beach while onlookers think, "Who the heck is that guy?"
Mike is one of less than a handful of guys that I can literally talk to on the phone for 2 hours and not say a word - simply just soaking up insight and his life experience.
(Scotty is one of the others)
Mike is a walking encyclopedia of men's health expertise and advanced quality of life issues.
He has me obsessed with beet juice, skin care and cutting-edge hormone replacement alternatives. Among other things.
As humbly put as possible - there's not that many people that I can learn a great deal from on the issues that are important to me. Mike is one.
It's not surprising that when I do Google searches for specific outside-the-box, who-the-hell-really-knows-about-these topics, I often come across Danger & Play for the answer. His website is a goldmine.
It was a pleasure to record with him and I hope we do more than the future.
0:00 Welcome Mike from Danger & Play (and Fit-Juice.com)
1:20 Funny metaphor
If Chris from Good Looking Loser is the big brother you never had, Mike from Danger and Play is the step-father you never had.
"If Chris @GoodLookingLosr is your big brother, think of Mike as your stepdad that uses steroids." - I lol'ed. http://t.co/ndYhVCN1lE— Danger & Play Blog (@PlayDangerously) June 10, 2014

21:40 The guys of Good Looking Loser (from Scotty's perspective)
22:10 The Good Looking Loser forum has been slowly earning the reputation as the "Most Sexually Active" forum and why most people succeed here (we only appeal to guys with real potential).
This is one example of many:
23:10 Why Chris has become politically correct and rarely flips out on anyone in real-time or the Internet.
23:45 College discussion begins - Should You Go to College?
24:05 If you are in your early twenties, not yet successful (and don't have $100,000+ in the bank) don't give advice on whether your peers should go to college. Even if you are correct, you are not qualified to speak on the issue.

31:15 Mike suggests to be 'all in' academically if you go to college, but still wishes he slept with more girls in college.

34:50 Mike's advice to guys in their early 20's. "No, No and No."

37:25 How does Chris have time to write Good Looking Loser and Lifestyle by Good Looking Loser and go out all the time to party and hit on girls?

The podcast (and it's crystal clear audio) continues on Danger & Play -
Do you have any questions for Mike (or me)?
Do you have any suggestions for future topics?
Just let us know below.
You've thought about it long enough.
Awesome audio guys, really crystal clear quality. Downloaded the file and listened to it on my way to work.
thanks Kurt - I love how good the audio is.
Mike its not the skull and cross bone ring, or the tight shirts, its none of those......it's THE bandana. That's differentiation(having an edge) GLL style!
haha- I did wear that in 2007-2009 though
"Self-Possession" really got me thinking. I wish I had that kind of mentality a few years back. I guess its earned through experience as you mature as well.
Yeah, I'd say it's probably the reason that guys aged 29-33 are better than guys aged 18-22 -- with girls
Pretty solid podcast from two awesome individuals. We really appreciate what both of you guys are doing. I'm stoked for the next one.
You should do more of this guys. Flawless audio. Excellent job!
The audio sounds better than we even sound in real life. Credit to Mike on that.
I really appreciate the podcasts that you and Mike from DangerAndPlay put out. I've listened to all of them, and what helped me the most is hearing that I don't have to know my life mission in my 20s, and that it's important to enjoy yourself....
I really appreciate the podcasts that you and Mike from DangerAndPlay put out. I've listened to all of them, and what helped me the most is hearing that I don't have to know my life mission in my 20s, and that it's important to enjoy yourself. The past year I've been working very hard on my goals (8-12 hours a day), but this summer I'm taking it easy and enjoying myself.
Thanks very much Oskar
I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
To anyone reading this, follow through, read this material, APPLY this material, and enjoy life.
Thanks again Chris, life would suck without you.
