Ep 19: What’s up with Credit Unions? Recession and Housing Market Decline? Almost a Certainty. Interview with Steve Stone

It was not that long ago that economists were touting the V-Shape Recovery. However, there is increasing evidence that a recession is in view and that it may have already begun, and that the Fed may be fighting the wrong battle by furiously raising rates now, and may have to switch back to easing to avoid a worsening recession. In our Legal Segment, Spencer cites mounting evidence that a recession may have already started. Perhaps there will be a V Shaped recovery after all. However, if the storm clouds portend rain, then now is the time to prepare. Prepare your investments, your job situation, your spending and your risk tolerance, because it is likely to be a wild ride.

Then join Spencer as he interviews Steve Stone, CEO of 1st United Services Credit Union, as they discuss the impact of the pandemic on Credit Unions, the resiliency of Credit Unions in a rapidly changing financial market, and as they take a fascinating look into the most underrated rock and roll bands of all time.

TS rarely makes economic calls, as we are not economists and you should not make any economic decisions based on our opinions. But we closely follow and interview many economist and follow the trends in the commercial and residential RE market closely and we are developing conviction that  big changes to the  residential real estate market  may be coming: Listen in and find out why.

Then join Spencer in this conclusion to our Special Two Part Series: Addiction Divorce and Recovery-It’s a Family Affair,  as he interviews Andrea Ashely, the host of the skyrocketing podcast for addicts and recovering addicts and those who live with them, called Adult Child. Spencer and Andrea will discuss problems facing those seeking to recover from drug or alcohol addiction  and how in many cases just getting clean or sober may not be enough. Sometimes, a person can overcome physical addition,  but  still a prisoner to habits that were instilled  or developed at childhood from a dysfunctional upbringing. Listen as Andrea Ashely describes the concept of adult-child and how some addicts  and alcoholics may need to become free of these issues in order to fully  recover from addiction. It could be one of the best podcasts for you or someone you love to hear all year!

Ep16: Special 2 Part Series: ADDICTION, DIVORCE & RECOVERY: IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR. Part 1: Blended Families: Interview with Ron Deal

Truth Serum is happy to present a Special Two Part Series entitled: ADDICTION, DIVORCE & RECOVERY: IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR.

Legal Templates which offers legal forms, including divorce and separation documents, published a report on July 29, 2020 with ongoing statistics about the impact of the pandemic on the family.

  • The report found that C-19 lockdowns began to destroy marriages quickly. The sale of divorce and separation agreement sales peaked 3 weeks into the quarantine, increasing 57% over the prior two months.
  • Newlyweds were hit the hardest.
  • The rate of divorce rates with couples with children (which usually is much lower) increased by over 5%.

The news on addiction and mental health was also alarming.

A study by Frontiers in Psychiatry Published online on April 16, 2021 found that:

As of May 2020, 39% of Americans lost their jobs or had their work hours curtailed due to the pandemic. The stress of financial uncertainty along with an increase in free time and the absence of employment repercussions  lead to significant increased drug use. The CDC estimated a record number of US drug-related deaths in 2020.

While the medical impact of the pandemic is lessening, addiction mental health problems and suicides continue to skyrocket while divorces continues to disrupt families, with the most traumatic  impact on younger children. A sub species of this problem is the fentanyl and opioid epidemic that is skyrocketing in this county, tearing at the roots of our culture.  

In the first episode of this Two Part Series, we examine the impact of divorce on the individual, the family and the country as a whole, and we explore the concept of blended family relationships.

In the second episode we will explore addiction and why just getting clean or sober may only be part of the solution. I will be interviewing noted podcast host Andrea Ashely whose podcast Adult Child explores why family trauma and dysfunction can impact addicts well after sobriety is obtained, and how dealing with the root family issues is a necessary component of recovery for many addicts.

Socially and physically, the impact of divorce can be equally devastating: A recent study published by Brianna Thomas in 2020 examined the effects of divorce on children. She found that the impact of a divorce on young children is now clinically defined as “toxic stress," or stress on a younger child over a prolonged period of time. This often translates to lower learning skills, increased behavioral problems, and heightened injuries resulting from teen pregnancy and sex trafficking. These results are not eliminated but are vastly mitigated in a two parent household. 

This is likely no surprise to most of my listeners. You have likely had to cope or interact directly with divorce or with children or grandchildren who have been greatly impacted by divorce.

Many people who divorce remarry. To further complicate things, many who remarry also bring children, resulting in what has come to be known as a Blended Family. What particular challenges face Blended Families and what can they do to up the odds that their marriage won’t fail?

Join me in Part one of this two part series, as I interview Ron Deal. Ron is the Director of Family Life Blended and a best-selling author. We discuss how a Blended Family can become a mended family and the challenges in making this happen.

Ep15: Review & Update of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act - An Economist Walks Into a Brothel and Other Unexpected Places to Understand Risk - The Great Reset? Economist Allison Schrager Interview

There are special protections afforded to active duty service members (and in some cases their dependents) under state and federal laws. In the Legal Segment, Spencer updates these protections and highlights recent bulletins from the DOJ and CFPB to lenders, servicers and landlords advising that they better comply.

Then join Spencer as he interviews economist Allison Schrager. Allison wrote a best-selling book called An Economist Walks Into a Brothel and Other Unexpected Places to Understand Risk. In her book Allison highlights the concept of risk, how it can work for or against you in life and what you can do to even the odds and fight self-destructive habits. From the brothel to world championship poker player Phil Hellmuth, to Pentagon general H.R. McMaster, Schrager explores risk in some high stakes arenas and shows how you can use five principals to identify risk patterns in your life and make then work for you.
Then Spencer and Allison discuss the Great Reset.

The concept of the Great Reset has been ongoing for years, but it gained much greater visibility and traction in June of 2020, when it was Title of the 50th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum. The concept is supported by politicians, activists and businesses all over the world and has three central concepts:


1. Creating conditions for a "stakeholder economy"


2. Building into all economies "equitable or sustainable" policies based on
environmental, social, and governance metrics to further environmental, and social agendas i.e. government scorecards to rate the adherence of its citizens to these goals and rewarding or penalizing those who comply or fail to comply


3. Harness the emerging technological innovations (Called the Fourth Industrial
Revolution i.e. AI, new industrial materials etc. for the public good, as opposed to private profit.

In the words of the IMF: green growth, smarter growth, and fairer growth.
However, critics see it much differently and view it as: An alliance of unelected and powerful people worldwide who want to limit national sovereignty and impose a global rearrangement of the social and economic system (based on socialist principles) to take away assets and rights from those who don’t conform to the new system, and reward those who do conform.

Listen as Allison and Spencer discuss this subject and see what you think.

Ep14: Depressed After the Holidays? Let the Schwartz Be With You (Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz Interview)

The impact of the pandemic on the mental health of all Americans can’t be overstated. Anxiety depression and suicides are at record levels, with disproportionate impact on the young and elderly, who struggle with isolation, fear and loneliness. A recent N. Y. Times article in December of 2021, cited a survey of 1320 Therapists. 9 out of 10 reported that they are being overwhelmed with clients seeking help, many for the first time over anxiety, financial stress and other issues, and that they fear the problem is getting much worse.

The solution to anxiety or depression is not one dimensional, but many professionals seek a reductionist answer focusing on a “one size fits all” answer or response to the problem. For a wonderful overview of multiple factors that can impact mental health and anxiety, I recommend a podcast by Timothy Keller called the Wounded Spirit.

https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/timothy-keller-sermons-podcast-by-gospel-in-life/id352660924?i=1000543352798

Of course anyone suffering from anxiety or depression should seek professional help and this podcast is not offering medical advice. Everyone must examine all options available when addressing anxiety or depression.

In 2019 I read a book called You are not Your Brain by Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz. I found the central concept of the book fascinating: In essence much like wearing in a path in the ground by repeatedly walking over the same turf over and over again you can repeatedly wear grooves into your own brain by repeated negative messaging. Your brain, a passive organ, then broadcasts these negative messages back to you whether you want to hear them or not: I call them “Bad Brain messages” that can lead to anxiety and stress.

Listen, as I interview Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz, as he discusses his Book, You are not your Brain, and how you can help turn off Bad Brain messages and use the concept of neuroplasticity as one tool to deal with anxiety and stress.

Ep 13: 2022: New Laws and Trends; and: A Trip to the Casino, a Good Investment? Don’t Bet on it. Interview with Rick Lopez

2021 was a wild year. We hope 2022 will be better. After a world-wide pandemic, lockdowns, vaccinations and turbulent economic, political and social turmoil, we could use a rest.

However, life does not work that way, and as we enter the new year, we want to give a brief recap of some new laws affecting Lenders in 2022, and trends we have observed in 2021 that we think may continue to take hold in 2022, including:

  1. Friction between government control and regulations, and individual rights.
  2. The likely outcome of the Inflation v Deflation Battle.
  3. Sovereign Transition to Digital Assets.

AND FINALLY, ON A LIGHTER NOTE:

In the face of all this uncertainty, and change, you  may be tempted to just fly to Vegas, or go down to your local casino and put all your money on Lucky 7 at the roulette table,  and hope for the best. We don’t recommend it. But if you do, listen to Spencer’s interview with entrepreneur and gaming industry insider Rick Lopez, it could be one of the smartest investments of your time that you have made all year.

We hope you have enjoyed the Truth Serum podcast. It is a labor of love and we are starting to get some national traction.  We just passed 10K downloads in less than 8 months and are interviewing nationally known and interesting guests on everything that matters.  If you like what you hear, please give us Five star rating and leave some feedback wherever you get your podcasts.

Ep 10: A-I The Next Step in Liberating or Dominating us All? Interview with Futurist Thomas Frey - Part 3 of Our Series On: The Beginning of the End of Your Privacy Rights, and The Future of Money

October 26, 2021

Previously, in this series we have examined how “Big Tech”, in allegiance with governments all over the world are using A-I algorithms to mine your personal data and create your “digital twin.” They use your data to predict your buying habits and to rate your political and social interests and behavior, and in some instances to reward, punish or censor you as a result.  The emergent use of digital currency will enable Big Tech and governments a transformative surveillance mechanism that if left unchecked will rob us all of any rights to privacy. China has already started this process and Western nations are not far behind.

In this conclusion to our series, we will examine the role increasing role that A-I will take in our future at work, home and in society.  We will examine whether it will liberate or dominate us, and look at some upcoming uses of A-I that are on the horizon. They present both exciting opportunities and serious ethical challenges that must be considered and resolved.  Join Spencer as he interviews futurist Thomas Frey to discuss:

  • Will AI ever develop the tools to operate independently of humans?
  • Will trips to the geneticist be part of the birthing process?
  • Will developing “super babies” and super humans” become the norm?
    • Is this just another ‘back door” entry for the eugenics movement?  Do we have the ethics and maturity necessary to genetically engineer our future?
  • The value of a human being:  It was  $200K. In the future it may be as much as Two Billion Dollars.  What skills will you need?
  • The workplace in the future: Collaborative work and freelancers.
  • Forget the apple, bring your computer to school:  A-1 Teachers for your kids.

October 8, 2021

New Laws and Regulations resulting from the use of Digital Currency and AI technologies will transform our lives in ways we never considered. In this 3 part series we take a look at the social, economic and legal repercussions of these transformative technologies on your right to privacy and way of life. In Part 2 Spencer interviews Pippa Malmgren (noted economist, author and Presidential advisor), to get an inside look at the issues we will face next few months and years, and how they will impact, lenders, investors and most everyone on the planet. One of the best interviews on this subject you will hear all year!

 Consider the following:

* Using Buckminster Fuller’s Knowledge Doubling Curve:  Human knowledge now doubles every 12 hours!

* Digital Currency will likely replace paper money in the next 1-3 years. There will be increased efficiency, but the price to be paid will likely be many of your rights to privacy.

* Bitcoin is likely not the answer.

* AI now allows predictive analysis of what you will do by government and big tech. Your cell phone and keyboard are “Trojan horses” to create your “digital twin.”

* The law may or may not protect you from surveillance and loss of privacy. New laws coming into effect in China in 11.21, set the stage for what is coming.

* Big Brother or Star Trek?  The choice is not binary. It could be both.

July 30, 2021
 
New Emergency CFPB COVID-19 Regulations re Residential Mortgages go into effect August 31, 2021.
 
1% Mortgage Rates by the end of the year?   Don’t laugh, we have solid reasons why and why deflation, not inflation is the biggest problem facing the Fed. Listen to Spencer interview noted financial advisor Steven Van Metre.
 
Hear what Americans think about the social and political  divide in this nation, as Spencer interviews America in the Where is the Love? Segment.
 
New CFPB Emergency Regulations: The potential impact of variants aside, it is clear that the pandemic has receded in the U.S.  Even so, stimulus and forbearance programs on federal, state and local levels continue at a record pace.  This seems to be morphing from needed emergency economic assistance to social engineering.    In in our Legal Segment, we will analyze some of the economic factors impacting recovery in the U.S. and will look at recent emergency C-19 regulations issued by the CFPB to prolong mortgage foreclosure relief into 2022 and beyond.
 
1% Mortgage rates by Year End?   In our interview segment, Spencer interviews Steven Van Metre, a noted financial advisor who believes that this may be inevitable.   Steven has espoused a contrarian position over the last year,  calling for deflation and predicting that  government bond yields would nose dive, when almost everyone else was and is calling for inflation and skyrocketing rates. Learn why,  and protect yourself now, if you agree.
 
Finally, in our where is the Love Segment:  We will find the love in the American People.  Join  Spencer and his lovely assistant the one and only Marti Scheer as  they go across  the country to interview people asking one simple question:  
IF YOU WERE THE PRESIDENT OF THE U.S. FOR ONE DAY AND COULD DO ONE THING TO MAKE THIS COUNTY BETTER, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
You may  be surprised at the answers they received.

‎Sunday, ‎June ‎20, ‎2021, ‏‎5:00:00 AM
 

Many are forecasting inflation, even run-away inflation as a result of massive government stimulus and money printing. Quietly, however, a growing number of economists are predicting deflation, including deflation of the residential RE market. In the legal segment, Spencer will examine massive hidden stimulus resulting from legal roadblocks to enforcement of lender and landlord rights, and why continuation of eviction, foreclosure and payment moratoriums may be signaling residential real estate deflation and a recession.

No interview this month in this abbreviated episode, with a special interview in our next Episode.

In our final segment, we will take a detour from our WHERE IS THE LOVE segment and will travel to the BIZZARO WORLD to look at just how far things have changed since the official onset of the pandemic last year.


Episode #3: Changing Legal Landscape: Increasing Regulation of Landlords and Lenders in CA

‎Thursday, ‎June ‎10, ‎2021, ‏‎5:00:00 PM
 

Federal, State, Local and governments are increasingly regulating every area of life. When is the state overreaching and when is it acting legitimately to balance the rights between landlords and tenants? Examine increasing regulation of landlord and tenant relationships in CA, governing everything from rent control to a recently enacted law in 2021 requiring that landlords accept Section 8 vouchers or face discrimination law suits. Then join Spencer as he interviews Jon Seigel a well-known landlord counsel as they discuss these laws and the impact on Landlords and Lenders in CA. Key insights into real world issues facing lenders and landlords in court and how to respond to them. Finally, in our Where is The Love Segment, Spencer will examine some ridiculous laws passed over the years.
