This week, Medal of Honor recipient William Kyle Carpenter calls in to talk to Adam about the events that led to his brave actions that saved his fellow Marines and led him to receive the award from President Obama. They share their thoughts on the meaning of perspective and how it shapes everything in life. Adam also shares his views on the have and have nots of the rich and the poor, how pride can stop growth and where we are in society. "You Are Worth It: Building a Life Worth Fighting For" is available now everywhere books are sold.
Manoj Bhargava joins Adam for this episode of Take A Knee. Adam opens the show praising Manoj's new documentary about looking for practical solutions for the large scale problems facing humanity today. Then, Manoj talks about leaving Princeton to move to India for 12 years where he gained what he thought was more valuable knowledge than perhaps a traditional education. After that, Manoj explains his latest idea for getting free, clean, renewable energy from the earths core. This leads into a conversation about all different types of renewable energy and which they believe has the most potential in the future. Before they wrap, Adam and Manoj talk about human nature, and why we don't have more intelligent people leading the world.
