The End of the World and Other News

The king flies solo this week, breaking down all the latest news. Jon talks about the trend in polling showing GOP gains in midterm races, the independent voters shifting to the right, Elon Musk trolling Ukraine, and the very bad news for China in the form of semiconductor sanctions. He also recommends Peter Zeihan’s latest book, The End of the World is Just the Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Globalization, and discusses the end of the former world order.

Subscribe to the King of Stuff Spotify playlist featuring picks from the show. This week, Jon recommends “Chainsaw the Door” by The Garden.

    Time to have Gray Connolly back on to check your assessments of China and Russia…you just mentioned him as I was typing. :)

    Always great to have you fly solo Jon – a treat when it happens. 

    Listening to the podcast I was thinking how the China Chip Restrictions that were imposed by the Biden Administration recently became the lonely addition to the list I try to make for any D administration – The Things You Did that I Agree With List. Not sure why it happened, but hat’s off! I keep waiting to read how the teeth are removed, or how some exception or another are created, but until then – Kudos to the Admin for helping to neuter Xi and the Chi Coms.

    As the show went on I thought to myself that you should listen to/read some Peter Zeihan – and then you mentioned him and his book. Yeah man! Great perspectives from this guy. Been listening to him for a long time – first was introduced to him as a guest on an obscure Real Estate podcast where he was on to lay out projections of the world, and I never forgot about him.

    His free daily YouTube updates are great, and I would be thrilled if you can get him as a guest. 

    Great work sir, many thanks.
