We are incredibly fortunate to live in an age where so many alpha males feel compelled to record their “high IQ” conversations and release them as podcasts.
These much-maligned podcasts actually teach you simple steps to live a fulfilling life: invest in crypto, lift weights, be assertive, don’t trust women, slap (no, not women – I know what you’re thinking you little woke snowflake) the nebulous tag of “woke” on anything you broadly disagree with, read books, network, adopt a convenient, watered-down brand of Islam that lets you do whatever you want while calling everyone else an uncivilised infidel, network some more, still don’t trust women, move to a soulless apartment in Dubai, tell the rest of the world you are the CEO of a real-estate-cryptocurrency hybrid start-up worth eight figures. Who knew enlightenment was so easy?
You’re in a neon-lit room on the twenty-something-th floor of a Miami high rise. It’s the middle of the night. There is a table adorned with microphones, mobile phones and red cups. A camera is framing the room, with more cameras poised to focus on the five men sitting around the table.
Despite the time of day, all these men seem wide-awake, almost wired. Each talks quickly and without room for self-doubt. For hours they talk at one other, discussing topics from sex to science to religion to money, navigating each with unwavering certainty. Even while contradicting themselves and admitting to the baselessness of their claims, the men never make room for self-doubt.
For all the evidence to the contrary, this is a “high IQ” conversation between “high value” men. These are self-proclaimed titles (much like “alpha male” itself) of course, but that doesn’t matter. Be confident. High value men act with conviction. They are deliberate. Betas and sigmas dither and soon enough they’re getting cucked by their girlfriend. Alphas know what they want and live their life how they want, on their terms.
You know what? You’re lucky to even be in this room, witnessing these high value men talk, sharing their blueprint for navigating the real world. Listen and you might learn a thing or two. Play your cards right and down the line you could find yourself basking under neon lights, sipping expensive drinks in plastic cups, fetishing Dubai and explaining to disenfranchised teenagers why women’s ovaries are more attracted to alpha sperm than sigma sperm. One day you could do that. Right now, you’re just one of the millions “broke normies” watching along.

On a brief serious note, before this recent trend of alpha male podcasts, how many of history’s great debates were stopped halfway through so participants could congratulate themselves on “a high IQ conversation”? I would suggest, and I’m just speculating here, the answer is zero.
Anyway, I like the self-proclaimed “high IQ” tag that infiltrates these podcasts. For people like me – budding alphas but firmly still betas – they are invaluable. Just in case my focus might be beginning to drift during the four hour debate, they servre as a perfect little reminder of the intelligence on display and I start taking meticulous notes again. These men are not just podcast hosts. They’re role models. I am a humble disciple.
A certain Andrew Tate is the poster boy for this brand of hyper-masculine male-lifestyle gurus, but he’s one of many. The extent of alpha influencers is astounding and below I’ve compiled a list of a few of my favourites.
Fresh and Fit is a podcast hosted by the inimitable pair of Walter Weekes and Myron Gaines. The podcast’s slogan is “Helping men navigate women, fitness and finances”, but like all good modern-day men, Weekes and Gaines love a bit of snowflake-bashing, and are masters of triggering feminists on the daily.
Blissfully unaware that a plane of intellectual debate exists above talking over women in scantily-clad, fashion nova minidresses, Weekes and Gaines milk this format for all its worth, their shows regularly attracting hundreds of thousands of viewers.

Justin Waller is another goldmine. You could cut a diamond on this bloke’s jawline. A close associate of the Tate brothers, Weller loves to spout vague banalities about business and money almost as much as he loves a suit that’s too small for him. The enrolment video to join Waller’s ‘Real World University’ can be found here, and gives me goosebumps every time. A native of the American south, Weller is a modern day crypto cowboy and the proof of where the modern West went wrong. That could have been me if I’d only found him sooner…
Another guru in the same vein is the Australian moose, Sartorial Shooter. I’m going to go out on a whim and say Senor Shooter has a bit more going on between the ears than some of the others, but my one downside with him is: for a man who claims to have “no interest or need in fame or clout” and “prefers to be the guy in the background”, he sure is good at posting his extravagant life all over social media. Nowadays, Shooter is a “professional problem solver” after working in security, and is another close confidante of the Tates.

Sneako might be the most controversial in his own right, outside the Tates. He’s a little like the early days of Ben Shapiro, another hero of mine, in that he’s a specialist in talking quickly and loudly, unloading a tirade that will make it seem like he won a debate and owned whatever “libtard” is in front of him, when he hasn’t actually said much at all. He has mastered this ability in particular when talking to OnlyFans creators. Lately, Sneako’s been very vocal about his conversion to Islam, failing to see – or perhaps just ignoring – the rampant contradictions between his supposed beliefs and his actions.
The list of brave men could go on. These are only but a few. Sadly, I’ve got hours and hours of alpha male podcasts to go and watch. If you remain sceptical as to the benefit or truth of their words, all I ask is that you go check them out for yourself. I did. Look at me now. Pious.
