Interview: Bo Bennett [0:00]
– Bo is many things: Businessman, Author, Martial Artist, Amateur Comedian, Motivational Speaker, and more!
– Does the official podcast for Toastmasters.
– After he wrote his first book “Year to Success” Donald Trump endorsed the book.
– Donald Trump’s stance on immigrants is baffling since some of his wives have been immigrants, and his hotels are built on the work of immigrants.
– Currently CEO of ‘eBookit‘ and ArchieBoy holdings.
– The current co-host of ‘The Humanist Hour‘ podcast for the AHA along with Kim Ellington.
– Bo was given a book by a co-worker, a Lee Strobel book, which made him think more about reality and skeptical thinking.
– Did some re-writes to the book and re-released it as ‘The Concept‘.
– Some people do get psychological benefits from personal prayer, like a form of meditation. Petitionary prayer is when it gets into the land of woo.
– Went to a UU Church, and others, to see if he could understand, or buy into the ‘feeling’ that many get from going to places of worship or church.
Sunday Assembly is another great alternative to church or worship, however makes Bo, and Derek as well, uncomfortable since they are not the singing and dancing type.
– Bo is a Doctor of Social Psychology and has a project, The Psychology Of Woo.
– His new show is ‘The Dr. Bo Show‘, which he waited under he was actually a ‘doctor’ to actually start.
– Latest book is ‘Positive Humanism‘.
