I first came across Phrost and Bullshido on an online forum that did some absolutely brutal takedowns of martial arts frauds. Now, years later, he’s still fighting bullshit on as many fronts as he can manage.
From Steven Seagal getting choked out on set… to the state of the US education system… to health influencers making fraudulent claims… to manipulation techniques used online… and how to develop information literacy I think you’ll like my conversation with Phrost.
And please share this episode with a friend or two if you liked it – it’s really helping!

Please Call Me Stephan, not ‘Professor’ or ‘Sifu’ or ‘Sensei’ or ‘Guru’ or ‘Master’ or ‘Shihan’ or ‘Kru’ or ‘Sabom’ Or ‘Kwisatz Haderach’
People mean well when they address me with an honorific but please call me Stephan, and not ‘Professor’ or ‘Sifu’ or ‘Sensei’ or ‘Guru’ or ‘Master’ or ‘Shihan’ or ‘Kru’ or ‘Sabom’ Or ‘Kwisatz Haderach’…
I don’t like these honorifics because there’s an inherent danger when lofty titles are used to amplify an already reflexive obedience towards a person. And this is especially true in a martial arts setting which is often a hierarchical environment with pseudo-spiritual overtones.
