When you step back a bit and break it down, the idea that a simple piece of cloth is the catalyst for completely polarizing an entire population of people. We won’t get into the efficacy (or lack thereof) of facemasks but the idea of being forced to wear one has put into place a near literal battleground of people. Additionally with the apparent forced compliance that so many stores/cities/counties/ etc. have put into place via health officer “mandates” it almost seems as if there is no escaping from it…or is there. This week on The Malliard Report, Jim welcomes a guest that has openly challenged these “mandates” and has made it his ambition to bring the information to the masses on how to best these.
This week, Jim welcomes Allan Stevo to the show to discuss, masks, bitcoin, tech, and much more. Allan Stevo is a former teacher, broker, and now full-time writer that focuses his attention on shedding the mystery and false stories surrounding some of the biggest stories out there. Allan got his start as a writer by sharing his stories from his time abroad in Slovakia. With a lack of content on the incredible history, people, and culture surrounding the relatively new nation Allan did what he could to bring that to the forefront of consumable media. Allan then shifted his interest into the up and coming (at the time) new currency of Bitcoin. Allan became a broker and eventually wrote the book The Bitcoin Manifesto which shed a lot of mystery off the confusing topic that it is. (I’m still not 100% clear on how it actually works to be honest) Now we find ourselves in today. Amidst the lockdowns, mask orders, and so much more, Allan has dedicated his latest book Face Masks In One Lesson to circumventing the silly orders that we are supposed to “comply” with.
Allan is a fantastic guest and the hour truly flies by. You can find all of Allan’s books through online retailers and you can follow him on Twitter (for now…because we all know how that can go as of late) @allanstevo.
