The Slacker Factor Podcast, Episode 40: Rebellious Squirrels

Episode 40: What is your career path? Does it involve being location specific, or can you be a digital nomad? Have you ever been to France? Has a rodent with a furry tail been spotted in your bedroom? Well, we talk about it, and interview our special guest, Kyle Del Bonis.

Meandering Rant: “Career Path” by Christian

Book Report: Interview with special guest, Kyle Del Bonis, digital nomad, couch surfer, life-as-a-social-experiment warrior.

Music Segment: Zaz, brought to you by Patty, featuring the song “Je Veux”

By the way, “Je Veux” means “I want” not “I see”, as mis-stated by Patty on the podcast. Apparently, both she and Christian should stop pretending they know French.

The Slacker Factor podcast is recommended for anyone who wants to know something about many things.

    While this interview had some interesting tips, and commendable resourcefulness (solar, tethering, etc.) this guy sounds like he’s got a bit of a sense of entitlement and hubris, not to mention, a bit unscrupulous to publicly talk about his former employer by name in this regard, not to mention the fact that he admitted to collecting unemployment DISHONESTLY, basically stealing from taxpayers while he “partied his ass off” for a few months and then decided to “find himself” or whatever, meanwhile complaining about student loan debt …? The couchsurfing, 4 hour body, tips were cool, but otherwise, it sounds like this guy isn’t really playing with a full deck and on a reckless path, but thinks he can get by with his charm or something. He sounds really, really smart. But he also sounds a little arrogant, narcissistic, and opportunistic.

    Thanks for voicing your perspective, Slacker Reader. We’re all trying to figure life out, and different people, obviously, make different choices. Maybe you won’t be asking Kyle to crash on your couch any time soon, but at least you can appreciate the resources he shared. Keep listening and letting us know your thoughts.
