Two Friends Talking About Things (2FTAT [TOOF-tat] for short) is a recorded series of conversations between long-time friends Jason Lengstorf (bit.ly/1LtjG8Z) and Nate Green (bit.ly/1CWAAtK). For Nate and Jason, personal growth and development has always been a primary focus. And deep, brutally honest conversations about their successes, failures, challenges, and fears have played a critical role in that personal development. But it’s a little unusual for grown men to have best friends. And it’s pretty intimidating to have a truly open conversation with a stranger. 2FTAT is not a replacement for real conversation, but it’s an attempt to open a window into the kinds of deep conversations that have helped shape Nate and Jason into the people they are today, and that will help them continue to develop into better people as time goes on. (They hope.) For a full intro and statement of goals, listen to the What Are We Talking About episode: bit.ly/1HIRKdj

Two Friends That Don't Always Agree ...
Another series of interesting and insightful ideas and thoughts from Nate and his buddy, Jason. The dialogue between the two is very dynamic, and they don't always agree with one another - it's great to see how two people deal with diverging viewpoints without compromising their own.
It I have enjoyed following Nate's development, which has influenced my own - this is just another set of chapters in a fascinating journey. I find the initial set of topics to be quite interesting - thanks, Nate & Jason!
The conversations are insightful and thought provoking. Motivation to live life to the fullest and to be an awesome person.
TFTAT = Joe Rogan meets Sam Harris
Most men in their mid-20's to late 30's engage in conversation relating to 4 things: small talk (with strangers and acquaintances), sports talk (with the guys), situational talk (with co-workers), and spousal/significant other talk. Nate & Jason open up their dialogue to many of the things in between we probably don't think much about, provoking & challenging our own biases and beliefs. It's refreshing to hear these two guys hash it out in a genuine, intelligent, unpretentious way. Thanks for putting these podcast up and for including the rest of us in the discussion!
