Kickin' It Old Skool – MTP411

  1. Kickin' It Old Skool - MTP411 Scot McKay 29:40

Co-Host Emily McKay ( First and foremost, if you think even for a second that this episode is going to be about two dinosaurs reminiscing about the past, you’re in for a surprise. Given how Emily and I have been totally immersed in dating and relationship stuff for nearly 20 years, we’ve had our fingers on the pulse of how men and women relate for a LONG time. On top of that, with a milestone high school reunion coming up this year, I’ve found myself thinking about how dating and relating has evolved…and surprised myself with a few key revelations. With all of that in mind, Emily and I have an honest, eye-opening conversation featuring straight talk about what we’re GLAD isn’t going on anymore. And yes, we also find a few examples of really good stuff that used to happen that just doesn’t anymore. For instance, what good has online dating and the proliferation of Internet dating advice done…but at what cost? How did ‘hookup culture’ change the game? How about pharmaceutical technology, of all things? At what time in history were women the most attractive? Were some of the styles and behaviors of the past that we cringe at when we see old pictures really BETTER, not WORSE? Was dating really drudgery, and whatever it has evolved (or devolved?) into really better? Have men forgotten how to be attractive? (Expect surprising answers on that one.) Is the post-modern version of seduction and courtship really different? What about texting vs. the now lost art of the phone call? Let’s just say those questions were merely the warmup. Look forward to an entertaining yet brutally honest take on what should be brought back vs. what should be left in the past.

Scot McKay Dating Strategist

Scot McKay has shared bad jokes with North Korean military officers, sipped coffee at Pablo Escobar’s home (served by his maid), survived a shark attack while surfing, held his breath as the pride of lions walked by his tent, and blitzed through California canyons with his knee on the double-yellow line at 140 mph. Yet somehow, he has also been referred to as the “sane one” on Twitter by Scott Adams, of all people.

But despite once being mobbed by the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, being able to back a 30′ travel trailer into its slot on the first try, and that time he beat the World Champion at his own sport (no details provided), he’s still the most objective and down-to-earth dating expert out there.

He’s also the most fluff-free fountainhead of original content in his field, if only because that’s what seventeen years of immersive geekery on the subject does for someone.

Scot’s wife Emily is his “proof of concept”, given that she’s just as sweet as she is smokin’ hot and still gets carded at her age. But you’ll never hear her brag about any of that, only Scot.

His show The Mountain Top has also been named a Top 10 Dating Podcast by, and a long time ago weirdly ranked Scot the #1 most influential Facebook user in the world.
