Description

James Altucher interviews the world’s leading peak performers in every area of life. But instead of giving you the typical success story, James digs deeper to find the “Choose Yourself” story—these are the moments we relate to… when someone rises up from personal struggle to reinvent themselves. The James Altucher Show brings you into the lives of peak-performers: billionaires, best-selling authors, rappers, astronauts, athletes, comedians, actors, and the world champions in every field, all who forged their own paths, found financial freedom and harnessed the power to create more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

Episode Date
567 - Coronavirus Economy Update: What’s Happening Right Now with Economist Tyler Cowen
3575

People are starting to lose jobs. And gigs. And become uncertain. Uncertainty brings up fear. Which is a pandemic on its own. I keep saying, "Prepare. Don't Panic." And so do my guests. So today, I interview economist Tyler Cowen. I ask him about the stimulus package, the job market, inflation, deflation, supply and demand, what the world will look like if people keep losing work. How we can get back to work. When is it safe? Flattening the curve, and more. 

And if you like this update, please let us know. So we can keep bringing you information that spreads peace. Over fear.

Thanks

- James

566 - How to Show People You Appreciate Them for WHO They are with Lewis Howes
3953

We could all use kindness all the time. But we need it now more than ever. I asked Lewis Howes for his advice. But we recorded this a few weeks back. Before the world's pandemic. I'm glad I'm releasing it now. Because it's the best time to remember how to love people. And then DO it.

565 - How Genetic Engineering and Today's Crisis Will Shape The Future with Jamie Metzl
6766

Medicine is changing everyday. We're all seeing this unfold right now. In front of our eyes. Some of the changes seems unreal. So I called up the expert of genetic engineering, Jamie Metlz to tell us what’s a reality and what’s science fiction. I wanted to learn what immunities we can develop? How is the current pandemic reshaping the future of medicine? And beyond that we talk about our global responsibility to reshape society. A lot of people are going to lose their jobs. And a lot of people already have. So how do you find your way in this new world? What can we do to land on our feet when the dust settles? 

I asked Jamie because he wasn't always a tech futurist or genomics expert. He started out as a writer. And switched careers because interest led him there. We have the opportunity to chase our interests now in a new way. 


Also, I’ve been getting great feedback on how these episodes around the coronavirus are helping people make sense in a really confusing time. So thanks for your support.

564 - Coronavirus Update: How to Boost your Immunity in Times of Pandemic with Harvard Medical School Professor & Biologist David Sinclair
4911

How do we know when something is wrong with us? I want to understand the testing process we have for COVID19. I want to understand "symptomatic" cases vs. "asymptomatic" cases. And who's data should we trust? So I called David Sinclair. He runs The Sinclair Lab at Harvard Medical School and is the New York Bestselling author of “Lifespan: Why We Age―and Why We Don't Have To.”

I also want to know how do I build up my immune systems? What steps can I take RIGHT NOW? And how do I keep this going over time?

And what's going on with testing for COVID19? What are the numbers? And why are they off? David breaks this down. And he explains which coronavirus tests are bringing us into the future of science and biology. He'll also help you understand who's at risk (everyone). And how to protect yourself. AND how to protect others.

Because we're in this together. 


Also, I’ve been getting great feedback on how these episodes around the coronavirus are helping people make sense in a really confusing time. So thanks for your support.

563 - The GOOD News About Coronavirus (Let's Look at the Data) with Peter Diamandis, XPRIZE Founder & Futurist
4589

I saw this line “How about some good news for a change.” It was the first line in an article by Peter Diamandis, Founder & Executive Chairman of XPRIZE. The article is on his website, diamandis.com and I highly recommend checking it out. I emailed him as soon as I saw it. “Come on my podcast.” And he did the next day. Because the world needs good news right now that can help us see the end of this pandemic, the truth in the numbers, and data and how to protect ourselves without panic.

562 - THE ULTIMATE QUARANTINE GUIDE to "What do I do now?" with Morning Brew CEO Alex Lieberman
2964

For better or for worse a lot of people are not working right now. 

And that’s going to be a serious issue in the economy. So, for anybody listening, I really stress this one thing: focus on making the right investments everyday in YOURSELF. Right now, with all this extra time, we get to learn who we are again. We get to learn new skills online. And offline. We get to be curious about old passions, try new things, get close with our kids or parents or partners, rediscover your family, etc.

And if we look hard enough, we'll even find new business opportunities, or ways to help people, or get smarter. And more. So, for this episode, I called up Alex Lieberman, CEO and founder of Morning Brew, which is the only newsletter I read in the morning. I asked him about this excellent list he put together "THE ULTIMATE QUARANTINE GUIDE TO 'WHAT DO I DO NOW?'"

You’ll hear what’s on the list. And how to make the most of your time right now. I'd love to hear which suggestions you like the most. And how you choose to spend your time now.

Write me on twitter @jaltucher or on Instagram where I'm doing an IG LIVE everyday at 2pm EST while we get through this together.

561 - How to Supplement your Income with Money Betting FOR or AGAINST Trump with PredictIt.Org Co-FounderJohn Phillips
5768

Everyone believes their own opinion. Fact based. Or not. We're all (somehow) political "experts." But the truth no one really knows anything. It's all speculation. But you put your opinion to the test if you get skin in the game. Which is possible now thanks to John Phillips who co-founded the site PredictIt.org. I go on there to place bets on everything from how many tweets Trump is going to make on a particular day or around a specific news event to who will win the primary. And who will win the election.

The site is great because it lets you see how right you really are. And you can make real wealth if you’re right. It’s not just betting. It’s more like a stock market. You want to buy low. And sell high. So I asked John on the podcast if he’s ever seen people make $50,000 on the site. He didn’t flinch, “Oh yeah. People have quit their jobs.”


I want to help people understand what's happening in the world right now. We're all scared. But we don't have to be. Let's get the information. And go from there.

I called up John Hopkin's Dr. Marty Makary to get straight information on coronavirus.

He answered all my questions (many of which I get from you). So give it a listen.

And you'll start to feel (hopefully) more calm and capable. Here are the links

560 - Critical Coronavirus Update: The BEST and The WORST Case Scenarios with Johns Hopkins Dr. Marty Makary
4736

"Don't believe the numbers you're seeing." This is Dr. Marty Makary's big message. The number of cases and deaths are radically underreported because a) we don't have tests, b) some countries are hiding their data, c) some people aren't showing symptoms yet, but have coronavirus and more. 

But listen. This podcast is not about fear. It's about knowledge and awareness and action.

Right now, nobody really knows what's happening. Thew news and social media are giving us false predictions off "estimates" that don't even account for the thousands of people who can't get tested for COVID-19. Meanwhile, Amazon is out of toilet paper. People are signing their emails "Don't touch your face! Best, Joe." And I officially own two hazmat suits. 

But how do we really "flatten the curve?" 

This episode will give you the steps. And I also recorded a recap at the end to give you more of a summary. AND because this is so critical, I have a list of timestamps below. So you can rewind and fast-forward for the stats that you want to share with friends and loved ones the most. 

So here you go: to keep on with the trend of providing ACCURATE information from reputable people, I called up, Dr. Marty Makary, a Johns Hopkins doctor and policy expert who also wrote the New York Times bestseller "Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won't Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Health Care" and "The Price We Pay: What Broke American Health Care--and How to Fix It."
 


6:50 GOOD NEWS: we can anticipate we’ll be clear in the summer. And more good news (for young people), you’re at less risk

7:00 - But who’s at risk? Let’s hear stats from Dr. Marty

9:34 - Which countries have given honest data. And which haven’t

10:58 - “Are we ready to see over a thousand Americans each day?” - Dr. Marty Makary

11:26 - Do we need a total lockdown? 

12:18 - WHY there’s a major misconception around the actual number of cases and deaths around COVID-19 in the U.S.

15:13 - “The notion that this is somehow contained is a notion we need to abandon. This is everywhere.” - Dr. Marty Makary

18:06 - Is China lying about the number of deaths?

21:30 - HOW to get an accurate estimate based on REAL data everyday

24:13 - THESE behavior changes will reduce the societal transmission rate by 50%

25:25 - I ask Dr. Marty Makary about the data from the cruise ships and why only 27% of the people on board got coronavirus… and he explains why the data from the cruise ship is “the perfect case study” 

29:35 - We talk about school shutdowns and travel bans

30:18 - “We need to break society down into two constructs: (1) essential and nonessential workers. And (2) high risk and low risk individuals.” - Dr. Marty Markary /  Hear Dr. M break down both of these ideas to figure out what categories you’re in

31:50 - We explore The Hong Kong flu, which killed between 1.5 to 3 million people globally in 1968. And other global pandemics to compare the numbers… Dr. M says this “could be roughly 5-10x worse…” and explains why.

35 - We talk about the death rate for the flu

37:20 - Why there are no cures or medicines that slow down the virus

40:30 - Stay active. But don’t go to the gym

42:20 - Where the media has gone wrong… and what the responsibility is for doctors in connection with the media

48:30 - We talk about the food supply chain

50 - How Americans are taking care of each other

52:40 - The math on how to estimate the potential death rate in the U.S.

54:40 - Why it’s good to practice social distancing

56:00 - Will this come back in the winter?

59:17 - Will there be a second round of infection? Is it possible to become immune to COVID-19? And can the virus mutate?

1:02:50 - “This is a time for us to take care of each other, forget about these artificial, political boundaries and see the best in people.” - Dr. Marty Makary 

1:50:20 - Why we need to stop relying on government leaders. And start taking care of ourselves

1:09:00 - What’s the long-term benefit of a lockdown?

1:11:00 - “Don’t panic. Prepare. We don’t want to create hysteria. There’s a lot you can do individually and this is one of the only things in healthcare ever, where what you do affects the rest of the country.” - Dr. Marty Makary

1:12:21 - Follow Marty on Twitter @MartyMakary

1:13:11 - I summarize what we heard and learned in the past hour


Also! A lot of you have been writing me and tweeting to say you love this episode with my friend Bill Beteet. Ep. 555 - How to Persuade Anyone of Anything with William Beteet III

556 - How 30-years of Passion Turns into a Business with Bill Glaser
3583

The macro formula for building a business with meaning looks like this: real relationships + belief + combining experiences +  fixing a problem + adaptability + (I could keep going). But these are just words. Bill Glaser, founder of Outstanding Foods and my new favorite vegan snack (pigless pork rinds) has stories. He’ll tell us how convinced a handful of strategic investors to say “yes” all at once, partnered with Snoop Dogg, found a hole in the market and turned it into an opportunity & more. 

Guest quote:

“Belief doesn’t mean having tunnel vision. Belief means adapting” - Bill Glaser

552 - The One Factor that Will Decide The 2020 Election with Phillip Stutts
4855

I'm not political. But I'm interested in studying human behavior, history, marketing, what drives decision making, the power of money, perception, persuasion... that's what an election is. It's a soup. So I brought Phillip Stutts back on the show to dissect what's going to define the 2020 election. He's worked on 3 winning presidential campaigns, several governor races, senate races, AND he’s also worked on losing campaigns. Which is important. Because that’s how you learn your field and get better.

I get a lot of emails from people asking how to make extra money. Or how to make a meaningful impact in life. Or both.

So I want to tell you where to go to learn how to tap into what you love the most and turn it into a profitable income stream. Go find out from my friends Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi. They have a course that I'm forcing my daughters to take. It's called "Knowledge Business Blueprint."  And it's exactly that... a step-by-step blueprint that will teach you exactly how to turn your knowledge into a business. All the details are at jameskbb.com.

551 - How To Escape The Pain of Inner Conflict with Kamal Ravikant

Kamal went to Nepal to live with monks. But most people can't do this. So I had him come on to teach me what they taught him. I recorded this episode BEFORE Kamal's trip, though. So we can compare. Before and after. Here's the before. 

Later, we'll hear how the monks taught Kamal how to feel less anxious. And escape the mental pain that comes from our daily inner conflicts.

550 - How to Find Your Passion: My Wife, Robyn Altucher, and I on How to Find Your Passion at Any Age and Stage of Your Life
3266

I get these emails all the time, "How do I find my passion? Is it too late? Am I a failure?" Every age asks this. Because we all want to know what's next for us. We all want a second act. Or third. Or fourth. And it's possible. So I sat down with my wife, Robyn, and talked about the exercises that each of us have tried. What works. What doesn't. And where to start (over).

Also! The best place right now to discover your passion is to check out this course from my friends Dean Graziosi and Tony Robbins. It'll teach you what you care about most. And how to turn it into your job. Go check it out. And sign up for the free seminar at jameskbb.com.

549 - PROOF You Can Conquer Your Biggest Fears: The World's Greatest Daredevil, Nik Wallenda Shares The Secrets He Uses to Successfully Defy Death Again and Again
3354

Nik Wallenda is a daredevil. He’s broken 11 Guinness World Records and should be dead from all of them. But he’s not. His skill is unexplainable. It’s part acrobat. Part circus. Part mastermind… You might’ve seen him on a highwire. BLINDFOLDED. While crossing the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, between buildings in Time Square or Chicago and more. I wanted to know how Nik defeated fear... was it his childhood training? Was it his focus or ability to control his heart rate? And how does he get himself to keep doing the thing that could plunge him to death while the rest of us are scared to quit our 9-5s? Nik’s talent is unbelievable. But the method behind it is accessible. And something we can all look at as a form of possibility.

547 - "The Bigger Family is the Human Race. It's The Most Important Family." Bishop T.D. Jakes on Race, Humanity, the Economy and How To Be In Service of Your True Calling
4053

I love having Bishop T.D. Jakes on the podcast. This is his third time on the show. And each time, he teaches me something new about turning pain into promise. So what does that mean? It means you're not melting into the pain of life. Instead, you're aware that you're not alone. And that other people could use your help if you pull yourself out of that. And lend them a hand. That's what true entrepreneurship is. And it starts by realizing that you can help people. Click play to hear T.D.'s deeply thoughtful expression of how to turn your passions and pains into something that makes life better not just for you, but for the world.

546 - How to write a book in 30 days
2827

Any one can write a book. And publish it. You don’t need a publisher. Or any gatekeeper to approve. You just need your own permission. And then you can do it yourself. So in this podcast, I walk you through how to pick your topic, how to find a unique angle to write about, how to outline your chapter, and so on. Think of this episode as a ready, fire, aim approach to writing and workshopping your own book in just 30 days flat.

And! If you really want to hear how successful someone can be with self-publishing their own book, go look at my friend Kamal Ravikant. He published a short book, 50 pages or so. And still makes money off of it today. It's just passive income. And he felt good writing it.

Tom Quiggin is a former military intelligence officer. And Canadian. And host of the Quiggen Report Podcast about "counter-terrorism in the age of identity politics." (i.e. how can you talk about a threat if you'll be call politically incorrect or worse racist if the threat itself happens to pertain to a certain culture?) I don't know the answer. And usually, I don't care. But I've had a lot of people come on the podcast recently and talk to me about the threat against free speech and comprise. You can take my privacy. I already know Alexa is listening. But free speech is another story. Because, if you look at history, speech is the first thing to disappear when countries collapse. Let's take a look. PLUS you'll also hear what counter-terrorism really looks like (interrogation tactics, interviews, the psychological states of a terrorist's mind and more.)

536 - How to Captivate Someone on a Gut Level: Renowned "Fight Club" Author Chuck Palahniuk Releases The Best Book on Writing I've Ever Read (And I've Read Them All)
7467

Chuck Palahniuk is the author of Fight Club... a cult classic. And one of my favorite books. I felt so lucky getting to watch him breakdown storytelling. Because he does it in a way that goes beneath the surface. He takes you into what it means to be human. He makes you feel seen and like your life, as messy as it is, makes sense. 

Now he has a new book called, "Consider This: Moments in My Writing Life after Which Everything Was Different." Which not only has all the best writing advice I've ever seen, it also has a list of recommended books in the back. Chuck and I read through the list. He asked me, "Have you read this one?"

And said the title. I said, "No."

He said, "I'm so jealous. It's like you're about to have sex for the first time."

I can't wait.

3604

Joseph ‘Rev’ Simmons is Run D.M.C.’s iconic rapper. He just wrote a book with this wife Justine Simmons called “Old School Love: And Why it Works.” I like this interview because they’re relationship is on full display here. You see they argue and work through it. You hear them banter and talk over each other the way real couples do. And then you see how caring they are for each other. So you’ll get the advice and the examples all at once. And in real-time. AND of course I asked Rev all about his rap career, fame, rising to the top, letting go of drugs, excess, gluttony and finding God.

532 - How to Swap Planning for Permission. And Go After What You Actually Want in Life: I Tell Sean Kim on His Podcast "Growth Minds"
4984

There’s a lot I want to accomplish in life. And I bet there’s a lot you want to accomplish, too. So what’s stopping us? Usually, in my own life, I can boil it down to one thing. It’s not focus. It’s not having some super-specific morning routine. Or 8 hours of sleep (although that’s important)… I accomplish things when I give myself permission to accomplish things. So what does that mean? It means I start doing and stop thinking about what it would look like to do something. So in this episode, you’ll hear Sean Kim, host of “Growth Minds” podcast interview me about how to swap planning for permission and go for what you actually want in life.

Everything is changing all the time. So how do we keep up? How do we learn to stay ahead of the future? That's what Jamie Metzl is here to tell us. Jamie is a tech futurist, self-taught genomics expert, economist and the bestselling author of "Hacking Darwin," which is all about genetic engineering and "the frontiers of biology." But what's most important here is that Jamie didn't go to school for genomics. He's self-taught. And he skipped the line by be self-taught AND a skilled sci-fi writer. Combining both made his book his #1. And opened the doors to new opportunities. That's what learning is about. So I ask Jamie to teach me how he learns. So we can be better learners, too.

Being informed is getting harder and harder. Everyone has an agenda. Some help you. Some get you to stay tuned it. Others get you to question. I want to question. Because that’s we’re growth is. So I brought Tim Dillon on the show. He’s a stand-up comedian. Which means he does MORE than just comedy. It means he looks at the world with a different lens. He looks for the absurd. And points it out. So we can all see the hypocrisy in life, in history and in our own heads. Learning conspiracies and comedy can be entertainment. Or it can be a learning ground for questioning, discernment and curiosity. I choose the ladder. Here’s my interview with Tim Dillon.

"Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It:" Best-selling Author Kamal Ravikant on How to Rebuild Yourself from Scratch
4335

I've been waiting for this moment. For seven years. Because 7 years ago my good friend Kamal Ravikant SELF-published a book. He uploaded it to Amazon. And sold half a million copies. This was without a publisher. Or a marketing team. Or any advance money. He just did it on his own. And it was hugely successful. He was able to use this money to pay for his rent in San Fransisco and basically all of his living for years. The book is called, "Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It." And now he's rewriting the book. And expanding on it. Because he got a lot of questions about the mechanics of loving yourself. People understood from the first copy why it was valuable. But they hoped for more guidance on how to do it themselves. So that's what this podcast is about. It's how to love yourself like your life depended on it. Plus we also talk about the benefits of self-publishing, bypassing the gatekeepers, being creative, being reflective and more.

So here's the show and if you like it, please let us know. I read all the comments and tweets. And use them to make better and better shows in the future.

Thanks -James

My breakdown of the Presidential candidates and their narratives!
4766

What are strong narratives and what are weak narratives? 

I sat down with comedian Brian Scott McFadden and we broke down the narratives of all of the presidential candidates to discover what we can learn from each of them and how we might form strong narratives for ourselves.

 

I also wrote an article about it: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/democratic-disaster-last-night-how-candidates-can-james-altucher/?trackingId=cOH9XPfBQVGug6qlU1GHTQ%3D%3D

3655

Amy asked a big question. She said, "Ten years from now when I look back at this decade of my life, am I going to be impressed with how I spent it?" She asks a lot of big questions. Because she's a psychotherapist and the author of the international bestseller, "13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do." She's a regular on this show. Because we're friends. But also because I always learn from her. This time we talked about giving yourself permission to quit things that aren't right for you anymore, becoming mentally strong, learning how to use that muscle, and a lot of other things that promote healthy behavior and choosing yourself.

515 - Why People Become Conspiracy Theorists: Quillette Editor Jonathan Kay Explains How People Get Persuaded to Cross the Line of Logic
2223

Who makes you think what? So many people come on my podcast and say, "Freewill is a myth." We've heard this from Yuval Harari who wrote "Sapiens." We heard it from Robert Greene, author of "The Laws of Human Nature." And now we're learning about it from a different perspective... Jonathan Kay wrote a book in 2011 called, "Among the Truthers: A Journey Through America's Growing Conspiracist Underground." He studied 9/11 conspiracy theorists, people who believe in UFOs, secret societies running the world and more. I wanted to know what makes someone cross the border from skeptical to radical. And he told me it has to do with a lot of elements... fear, control, desire to create hope and fight evil in the world. I was surprised to learn the psychology behind it. AND to learn how you can avoid the trap.

I love games. I love chess. I love poker. I love anything that helps me be more strategic, prepared for negotiations. I like being able read people and build alliances. All of this comes from games.

511 - What’s Valid Work?: Mike Rowe, “Dirty Jobs” Host on Where Dignity Comes From & How to Feel This In Your Life
5529

Mike Rowe has been a TV personality for a long time. He’s best known as the host of “Dirty Jobs” where he shows the world what it’s like to do dangerous and disgusting jobs. Mike showed us that there’s dignity in work. Of all kinds. In this episode, I ask Mike what made him want to do that show. He told me, “Curiosity.” “It’s no less valid to wonder how a sewer works than how the Hubble works.” Mike shows that work is not about prestige. It’s about providing… something so many of us forget to recognize ourselves for. Even if we deserve to.

510 - How to Build a Community That Loves You: Jeannie Gaffigan Speaks About The Support That Came with Battling Brain Cancer
4578

I’m jealous of Jeannie Gaffigan’s brain tumor. Not the tumor itself. Or the feeding tube. Or side effects. But I’m jealous of the community that came to her side. I told her, "I’m afraid that if this ever happens to me, I won't have the love and support that you've built up over the years." She had a mega support system... neighbors and family who got her the best doctors, plus friends and colleagues who worked with her when she wrote and produced "The Jim Gaffigan Show." She laughed. Because it's the weirdest thing to be jealous of. But she understood. And told me not to worry. "I had no idea I had this [support system]. It took this. You have it. You just don't know. Like me. I didn't know it." She wrote all about this in her new book, "When Life Gives You Pears: The Healing Power of Family, Faith, and Funny People." Which you can also listen to on Audible. It'll make you laugh. And help you feel more connected. And more capable of handling life's hardest moments.

509 - Be Big Enough to Change Your Circumstances: Eric Adams Shares How He Went From "Bad Kid" to Brooklyn Borough President
4740

Eric Adams was beat by the police at age 15. “They kicked us in the groin over and over again. We were urinating blood for seven days.” So when Eric grew up, he became a cop. “I had no idea I was going to last for 22 years,” he said. “I thought I would be there a year. And then they’d say, ‘Get rid of this guy. This guy’s a trouble maker.” But that never happened. He got promoted. “I was driven. The plan was to go in there with a mission. The mission was to find ways to make communities safe without being in disgrace. How do you turn this noble profession into what it ought to be?” Later on, Eric became a state senator and now he’s Brooklyn Borough President with a new mission to become mayor. In this episode, you’ll hear Eric talk about his drive. And how he turns visions into missions. With real hope. And real possibility.

507 - Back from the Dead: Kamal Ravikant Shares How His Near-Death Experience Led to Inner Peace
4080

Kamal Ravikant went to the hospital for a scheduled elective surgery. Everything went great. Until the stitches inside his body ripped. And he felt pain in his stomach. He asked the nurse for medicine. Soon his was spurting blood everywhere. One of the residents held him down to try to stop the bleeding. Kamal sat there in fear as he watched the inside of his liquids get all over this man. They had to get him back into surgery. But this time they didn't know if he'd make it out loud. Right before they put the oxygen mask on, Kamal told the doctor, "I'm scared." She held his hand. And he disappeared out of consciousness. Now he's back. He's alive. And he came on the podcast to share what it feels like to start dying. And how living... surviving brought him a new sense of knowing what matters. And what doesn't.

It’s hard to practice psychology in high stakes situations. But it's necessary. I've been practicing this forever. I practice with chess, in business, in negotiating, in investing. Jennifer Shahade also practices this. Actually, no. She's mastered it. She's the U.S. Women's Chess Champion and a professional poker player. We've been playing chess together since we were kids.

499 - Learn to Live in The Maybe: Tim O'Brien on War, Writing & Resting in The Unknown
4260

Tim O’Brien is the bestselling author, “The Things They Carried.” Tim wrote this book as a veteran of the Vietnam war. He was drafted. Like everyone else in their 20’s at the time. “85, 90% of our casualties came from land mines,” he said. “Not gunfire. Not the typical battle you’ll see in movies. Landmines were the killing force.” Every step he took was a mystery. People died all around him. ““I’ll never know how close my foot was to a land mine,” he said. Now he's 73. And has a new book. It's called "Dad's Maybe Book." His son came up with the title. But I look at this book as a sequel to "Thinks They Carried." Because both books include the idea of "maybe." "Will I live another day?" "every day has maybe," Tim said. "But that’s true for everyone. We all write our maybe books. Maybe my dreams will come true. Maybe not. Maybe I’ll change my dream, amend them or qualify them..." This episode is about learning to get comfortable with the maybe. Settling in. And seeing the story unfold.

498 - How to Quit the Stable Job You Hate For Something Better: Mike Bullard on His Journey from Cop to Comic
5646

Mike Bullard dropped out of school to become a cop. He wanted to solve murders. But no one really gets murdered in Canada. So he quit. And became a stand-up comedian. Then a talk show host and radio host. He’s since been named the greatest TV talk show host in Canadian history. I asked him about his decision to quit and turn toward a new (and harder) dream. Here’s Mike Bullard on how he made it to the top.

494 - Talking About Depression & Mental Wellness: Gary Gulman on Using Comedy as Therapy
4336

Gary Gulman is a comedian I love as a professional, a person and a friend. He first came on my podcast in 2016. When he was severely depressed. He could barely get out of bed. I admired him. Because he was really honest about it. He's doing better now. But there's no such thing as perfect when it comes to mental health. We all have our battles. Whether it's with self-doubt, fear of getting out of our comfort zone, wanting to be liked... or if it's the intense spectrum of clinical depression, which Gary brings light to. And laughter in his new HBO comedy special, "The Great Depresh."

Tyler Cowen is an economist and the author of "Big Business: A Love Letter to an American Anti-Hero." This book is meant to help calm your nerves. He says, "I think we're in a grumpy time period. People are upset at politicians, at Congress, somewhat at the church, the media, there’s a loss of faith in many institutions. There’s a sense that whatever is perceived as having power has to be taken down and I think big business is caught up in that... I thought I would just write down the things about big business that no one else was saying." It's sort of a contrarian book... "which ought not to be contrarian.”

Tank Sinatra was an alcoholic. He knew it early on. And quit drinking when he was 22 years old. "You know how people say they're going to go have 'A drink?'" he said, "I've never done that."

Now he runs several meme accounts on Instagram. Including @tank.sinatra (1.8 million followers).

474: Scott Galloway - Men's Health: "If You Continue To Do This, You're Going to Die Early"
4374

Scott Galloway quit everything in 1999. He quit his job, his marriage. “I didn’t like my friends. I didn’t like myself,” he said. So he went out on his own. Two years later he felt like he was going to die. “I only left my loft for food, sex and to go to the ready-teller,” he said. "An instinct kicks in that if you continue to do this, you're going to die early." He did the research. And found that men who live alone die 8-10 years earlier than men who are engaged in a family. So he started to study what was happening in his head. What was it about isolation that made him vulnerable? You'll hear the science in this episode. You'll also hear about the psychology of money, how to use it to feel happier, the 3 types of love (and which is the most important to longevity), what memories in your life will solidify in your brain as your greatest moments in life, and more.

All of this comes from Scott Galloway's newest book "The Algebra of Happiness." Which he wrote because he made a video about it, got 2 million views and realized "people need to hear this."

3622

Eric Weinstein is the managing director of Thiel Capital. He has a Ph.D. from Harvard in mathematical physics. (Meaning, listening to him WILL make you smarter.) I asked him how he learned to think so clearly. Because too many of us are in a fog or sleep-deprived or on an emotional stress-induced roller coaster. So how do you get off? Eric explains: try being an imposter, look for the core principle of any given problem, let history be your reference in life, build reliable mental models and more. He explains how in this episode.

4090

We've been lied to. All of our lives, we were told that the most successful people in the world started young. And focussed on just one thing. LIES! David Epstein just wrote about this in his book, "Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World." This book is proof that there are shortcuts to mastery. (And I bet you're already doing at least one of the shortcuts). In this episode, you'll hear the formula for mastery, how to start something new at any age and you'll hear case studies of famous artists, athletes, investors and more... all who dabbled in life, tried different careers, moved around and still rose to the top.

4869

I’m jealous of Gabriel Weinberg. He wrote the book I WISH I wrote. It’s called “Super Thinking: The Big Book of Mental Models.” This book has hundreds of mental models, cognitive biases, ect. This is a book I'm going to keep out and re-read pretty regularly. Because it explains why we think the way we think.

Here are a few you'll hear about in this episode: how to force yourself into thinking critically, how to stop jumping to conclusions, how to end arguments with people you love, how to improve your decision-making ability and more.

And Gabriel is also the founder of Duck Duck Go, a search engine that gets over a billion searches a month. And focusses 100% of keeping you safe and searches private. You'll hear more about this, why I use it and how it can benefit you.

Brad Thor used to work in the TV industry. Then he got married. And his wife asked him, “If you were on your death bed, what would you regret not doing?" He answered right away. Without thinking. "Write a novel," he said. Now he's written 19. And he's one of my all-time favorite thriller writers. He told me how he carved out time for his dream, what it's like to work on secret projects with the government, how he got his book deals, the beats of a thriller and more.

465 - Susie Essman: Bravery = Opening Yourself Up to Getting Rejected. Showing Who You Are. And Going For What You Want
4385

People are scared to be brave. Not Susie Essman. She puts her guts out there. It's how she became a successful comedian and actor. And this is a serious model of success in any situation. Because you can't half-ass your business, your book, your life, your career. So I asked Susie "How do you get to that level of bravery?" "What should someone listening practice?" And she told me.

-

You can see Susie on HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm," Comedy Central's "Broad City," ABC's "Bless is Mess." And she has a novel coming out soon about a woman who has to clean out her mother’s apartment after she dies.

4183

Humble the Poet started out as someone who didn’t know what he wanted to do in life. Then he became a teacher. He was good with kids. But there was too much bureaucracy in the job. So he quit. I asked him a bunch of “how” questions. “How did you quit?” “How did you start your side gig?” “How did you know you’d make money? or be successful.” A lot of it was about following his intuition. And taking one step at a time. Which anyone can do. At any age.

Jeff Garlin is an actor, known for playing Jeff Green (Larry David’s sidekick) on Curb Your Enthusiasm (my favorite show!). He’s also on The Goldberg and he’s been doing stand up comedy for 37 years. But he didn't start out knowing he'd be successful. He just gave himself no other choice. "Because I had nothing to fall back on," he said. "My dad always used to say, ‘Have something to fall back on.’ If I had something to fall back on and I liked it, I might’ve fallen back on it."

Mike Reiss had a horrible boss. He'd call him up just to say, "XYZ sucks." He'd hold group meetings just to put his insults on display. "He was impossible," Mike said. But he dealt with it. Which seems like something a lot of people don't know how to handle. Mike gave me his tips and then also told me what life is like now. He's a co-founding writer of "The Simpsons." And he still flies to LA once a week to work on the show. "I can make jokes. I can’t really do much else," he said. "And thank God it’s a job. I'm the luckiest man in the world.”

He’s back! Roger McNamee is a Silicon Valley veteran who’s mentored everyone from Steve Jobs to Bill Gates to Mark Zuckerberg. And more. But he’s not here to talk about their success. He’s here to talk about the ways their success is crippling our freedom. And how to change that. Before it’s too late (also, I should say, I’m never a fan of "doom and gloom" marketing. This is not that. This is education. And knowledge. Which equals power.) This episode is the start of a privacy revolution. And you'll be glad to look back one day and say, "I remember how that got started."

Caroline Hirsch is the owner and founder of the iconic Caroline’s comedy club in Time Square New York. She’s worked with Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Tracy Morgan, Amy Schumer, and all the greats. She told me about the pattern that great performers go through. But we also talked about a new project: "Ask For Jane." It's a film about the activists who worked secretly to help women get safe abortions at a time when abortion was totally illegal. She said that even talking about abortion could be considered grounds for manslaughter. And the point Caroline wants to make is that these rights are at risk right now.

4375

Pete Holmes wants to rearrange the molecular structure of your brain. NOT through science. He wants to do it through comedy. And masturbation jokes. "When my wife left me," he said, "I realized that comedy is noble. People are hurting and it’s a good thing to do. I know I’m being a little bit high-hoped about stand-up, but good comedy can alchemize pain into pleasure. And I’m getting emotional, but that’s f***ing beautiful.” Don't let these quotes fool you, though. This episode is as hilarious as it is philosophical. And if you like that, also check out Pete's new book "Comedy Sex God."

He thought “I’m so great! You just hired me.” Arrogance kicked in. And he forgot about all the potential he had. We all do this. For different reasons:  we're busy, we're tired, we think we know it all, ect. But there's no good reason to stop growing.

Yesterday's "10 Ideas" List (Proof that BAD Ideas Lead to The Good Ideas)
3634

I get this question a lot: “Did you start coming up with ideas because you were already successful?” I'll tell you WHY they ask this. Because people think "I need to pay my bills and THEN I'll change my life." That's backwards. I was dead broke and dead lonely when I started writing 10 ideas a day. It changed my life. Even the bad ones. So I still do it. Every single day. In this episode, I sit with Steve Cohen and go over yesterday's idea list ("10 Reality TV Show Ideas"). You'll see why ideas are infinite.

450 - Mark Malkoff: It's OK to Not Takes Yourself Seriously All The Time.
7258

Mark Malkoff is a comedian who challenges himself to the impossible. And I don't mean medical miracles or anything like that. Everything he does is purely ridiculous. “I get super focussed when someone says I can't pull something off,” he said. This episode will teach how to become persistent. And it will teach you that it's ok to not takes yourself so seriously all the time.

How to Deal With Crappy, Toxic People
4000

When I wrote “How to Deal with Crappy People” it became the most popular post on my blog. Everyone is dealing with crappy people. Since that post came out, the most common question I am asked is "What if the crappy person is your boss?" "Or someone you work with?" "Or someone you live with?" In other words, what if the person who is actively trying to harm you, who probably hates you to the core of your being, is someone you or forced to deal with every day? Steve and I talk about the different ways we deal with this, what works, what doesn't work, and some things worth trying out.

449 - Chelsea Handler: Life Will Be The Death of Me (Stories About Grief, Healing, Cannabis & The Quest for Meaning)
3042

Chelsea Handler is a comedian and the author of “Life Will Be The Death Of Me.” I interviewed her live at Stand Up New York (you can find out about upcoming live shows here).

We talked a lot about trauma, comedy, death... and healing. Chelsea was only 9 years old when her oldest brother died. She felt abandoned. She thought “He went and got himself killed. He wasn’t even careful!” No one taught her how to grieve. So it followed her. Until finally, something else triggered her. Now Chelsea is using comedy (and cannabis) to help "take the edge off." And make the healing less taboo, more fun, and accessible for everyone.

448 - Dave Barry: How To Have More Humor in Your Life
3463

Dave Barry is a comedian and the author of “Lessons From Lucy: The Simple Joys of an Old, Happy Dog.” The book is really funny. I rarely laugh out loud while reading. I have Dave tell me about the inspiration for the book and some of the ways his life has changed (for the better) at age 70, including how to have more humor, more joy and feel an overall sense of satisfaction and goodness.

447 - Hal Elrod: Decide What Has Power Over Your Life and Your Future (Using "The Miracle Equation")
4282

Hal Elrod almost died twice. Actually, he did die. "I was clinically dead for 6 minutes," he said. He was hit by a car. And the doctors said he'd never walk again. Hal dealt with the news with a totally different mindset than most people. "I gave myself five minutes to upset about it," he said. "I accepted the worst case scenario. It has no power over me." Hal is a master at this. Over and over again, he decides what has power over him and what doesn't. In this interview, you'll hear how Hal created "The Miracle Equation," a practical, step-by-step guide to ceaate what you want in life. And go for it. Hal uses this equation everywhere from the most extreme (surviving cancer and learning how to walk again) to the every day (making money and living meaningfully).

Don’t Follow Your Dreams. Age With Your Interests!

Sometimes our dreams hold us back from thinking about new possibilities. This is a 10-15 minute episode about why I don't believe in following your dreams. And why it's better to age with your interests. (Examples included!)

446 - Lori Gottlieb: What to Do When You're Ready for a (Real) Change
2611

Lori Gottlieb is a psychotherapist and the author "Maybe You Should Talk to Someone." I asked her why therapists never tell you how to improve your life. Why won't they just give me the answers? And she said it's because people like to live where it's safe. Therapists know this. They know you won't take their advice. And that you have to figure out for yourself. In this episode, Lori says how talking to someone can help you see the changes you really need. Rather than living in the same decision-making that got you to where you are today. I like her message because it means we all have the chance to change.

Tim Ryan is running for president. He just announced it. I interviewed him five years ago. It was my 32nd podcast interview. I'm re-releasing it. Because it's evergreen. Tim talks about how he got into meditation, the science behind it, how it can help improve your personal health and how it can also impact the health of our country. Give it a listen and let me know what you think.

What I Learned When I Was Dead Broke

When I was broke, I thought my life was over. Then I made 4 changes. I talk about those 4 changes with Steve in this episode. But we also talk about investing, how to spot a scam (like Madoff), becoming an idea machine and more. 

Also, let us know what you think! I'm @jaltucher on Twitter. And if you've listened to the other episodes then you might have my phone number so you can text me, too.

Thanks.

Steve and I were going to do this podcast on "The 10 Commandments of the American Religion." Which is an article I wrote (and got tons of hate mail about) back in 2016. But we only got through #1 and #2. Which happen to be about 2 worst financial risks you could take. Listen to find out what they are, how to avoid them, and why. Plus I'll show you all the money you COULD save if you avoid these two mistakes.

442 - Justice Sonia Sotomayor: Lessons From a Supreme Court Justice on How to Persuade & Convince
2542

Justice Sonia Sotomayor is on the US Supreme Court. I went to Washington for this interview. And asked her what makes someone persuasive and convincing? Is it voice? Is it confidence? And what makes a winning case? And how does someone become the type of person who gets recognized as true and good? I could tell why people look at Justice Sotomayor and say, "Ah, yes, I believe in you." She told me about her beginning. And the dead-ends she hit before making it to the top. She also told me about her new book for young adults called, "Just Ask: Be Different, Be Brave, Be You." It's technically for 4th-10th graders. But I felt the sincerity and goodness in the lessons even at age 50.

Listen to Steven talk about the hero’s journey and how you can become the hero of your life (even if you feel like it’s too late, it’s not.)

Entrepreneur vs. Employee: They’re Both Great & They Both Suck. Here’s How to Make the Best of Both
4092

We did this whole podcast off of my idea list for the day. I was in a Facebook group. And someone asked “What does entrepreneurship mean to you?” People had these corny answers like “value, freedom…” But when I started my first company in the 90’s, I cried everyday for 15 years. It’s stressful. Your business follows you everywhere. And eventually your employees are going to start having sex with each other. And a million things can take your dream down. That’s not to say entrepreneurship is always a bad idea. It’s not. I’m glad I did it. I feel like it made me stronger. But people can experience freedom and wealth and everything else from employeeship, too. So I wanted to explore that.

Eddie Ibanez is the biggest cyber security hacker I know.

(He holds a lot of secrets). He'll tell you how you're being hacked, how to protect yourself, what threats are out there for individuals and countries, and more.

Brad Meltzer gets to call up the CIA and the secret service whenever he needs a new story. He’s written 11 best selling novels. They’re all history thriller novels. And now he’s written his first non-fiction book about the plot to kill George Washington. Which leads to the invention of the CIA, spies, and other conspiracies. Brad's fascination with history also leads to self-history. He did a TED talk on "How To Write Your Own Obituary." Which made me think, what history will I leave behind?

3494

Todd Herman coaches CEOs, Olympic athletes, entrepreneurs (etc.) on how to reach their peak performance using 1 key trick… an alter ego. He says, “We’re all super multi-layered people.” But we block ourselves. We constantly use old narratives that we’ve outgrown or hold us back. And we force ourselves to be somebody we don’t want to be anymore. But if you use an alter ego, you can get out of your head. And perform the way you want to (at work, in negotiations, on the field, while networking, in relationships, anywhere.) He'll tell you success stories and how to get started.

Roger McNamee was Steve Jobs' mentor. And Bill Gates. And Mark Zuckerberg. Why is Roger so valuable to these people? What does he know that we don't? What did he have to offer the world's future billionaire visionaries? I also wanted to hear stories. What is Steve Jobs like? And Mark Zuckerberg? "When I met Mark he was different from everybody. But in a kind of cool, interesting way. I mean a little creepy too. But you have to keep in mind, tech entrepreneurs aren’t like you and me.” They're obsessed. And focussed. And sometimes equally underdeveloped as they are overdeveloped. One other thing about this interview: it'll change the way you think about technology.

4407

Stephen Merchant is 2x GoldenGlobe-winning actor, writer and director. I’m a fan of everything he’s worked on (The Office, Office Space, Extras, Hello Ladies, etc.). And now he has a brand new movie coming out that I highly recommend called “Fighting With Family.” The Rock is in it. Stephen wrote and directed it. It’s based off of a real-life family who raised their kids to be professional wrestlers. And it tackles all of these real-life human experiences like the fear of not making it, the pressure to succeed, setting difficult expectations for ourselves and so on. This episode is both funny and totally relatable. Just like Stephen’s upcoming movie (coming out Feb. 14)

People don't talk about this enough... the life hacks that answer the bigger questions: "How can I make time for things I really love and enjoy?" "How do I get the most out of a day, a week, a year, ten years?" There are a lot of life hacks out there. But I wanted to do something different. I wanted to talk about the little tweaks I do personally to optimize my life and make it a little better bit by bit. Just 1% improvement a day compounds. And adds up to 3780% a year. So here are 6 more things you can try (that all add up) to improve your life.

431 - Gary Gulman: "I'm Not Suffering from Depression Anymore"
5706

The first time Gary Gulman came on my podcast, he was totally depressed. He had difficulty speaking. He was hunched over. I almost felt bad for inviting him. But he was really candid. And I wanted to be his friend. He's likable and his comedy always makes me laugh. This is his third time on the show. And he's not suffering from depression anymore. He told me about the medical changes he's made, the support of his loved one, and (best of all) finding his way back to feeling normal. “I wasn’t myself for so long,” he said. “And now to be myself is so exhilarating.” But I realize a lot of people, even people without depression, don’t have the safe and secure feeling of being themselves on a daily basis. So this episode can help you if you feel stuck in some version of yourself that wants to grow and be different and be healthy again.

430 - The Best 1 Minute Life Hacks to Save Time & Enjoy More of Life
3995

One time I was on a plane with an CIA officer. He told me a lot of stories. One thing he said stood out. It was a life hack that I adopted right away. And I've been doing it for years ever since. I try to collect one takeaway from every person I interview. But sometimes I get takeaways from my friends and even myself. And now they're all recorded in this podcast.

Oh and one more thing. You can let me know your favorite by tweeting @jaltucher.

Thanks.

429 - Garry Kasparov: The History of The Free World (And How to Gain Confidence in The Future)
3952

Garry Kasparov is the best chess player in history. He was ranked #1 in the world for 20 years. And in 2007, he ran for president of Russia. Now he lives in exile. Going back to Russia is not an option for him. When I asked him, "Would you be in trouble?" he said, "Trouble is an understatement." He'd be arrested or worse because of his outspokenness and belief in democracy. He believes in America. And he's noticed a lot of young people don't seem to believe in America or its ideals. They don't realize the free world is always being threatened. Garry says, "We cannot separate ourselves from the world. We need to be more proactive. If you don’t want to be proactive you’ll be subject to manipulations." Use this episode as a chance to rediscover history, develop skepticism, become a sharper critical thinker and strength your ability to fight off manipulation online and in real life.

428 - Evan Carmichael: How to Shut Out the Negativity in Your Life and Maybe Get Huge on YouTube
5947

Evan Carmichael has a YouTube channel with over 2 million subscribers. He didn’t have a master plan. He built it up from scratch. And just followed a few simple rules (which you’ll hear in this podcast). My favorite rule out of all of them is this: “Follow your momentum.” Evan didn’t know he’d be a huge success on YouTube. He just tried it and felt the momentum and followed it forward. Now he has 16 employees and gets letters from people who say “You believe in me more than anybody else in my life.” Because his videos are built to inspire. This episode breaks down how he got his success on YouTube, what you should do if you want to start today, and he also covers his top tips for running an online businesses, how to shut out the doubt and negativity in your life and replace it with the messages that will actually make you feel happy, healthy, confident, capable, and so on.

427 - Lori Gottlieb: When To See a Therapist (And When Not To)
3498

Lori Gottlieb is a psychotherapist and the author of an upcoming book called "Maybe You Should Talk to Someone." She also writes a column in The Atlantic called "Dear Therapist." This episode is sort of a behind-the-scenes. Because Lori tells me what therapists really think about their patients, how they might deal with situation X vs. situation Y. And she also talked to me about things she's noticed about people in general. Like how we don't set high enough standards for ourselves. And what we can do to improve. This episode will make you reflect on the areas of your life that aren't working. So you can stop feeling stuck.

426 - Gilbert Gottfried: Laugh Everyday (It's Medicine For Your Day)
4434

Gilbert Gottfried started doing stand-up comedy when he was 15 years old. He dropped out of high school and within 10 years he was on Saturday Night Live. And he built his career up from there. But he's also been the center of a lot of controversies. People get upset at comedians for "going too far." But Gilbert does it for a reason... He said, "I remember, I did this show that was a tribute to Joan Rivers. It was right after there was that shooting at a gay nightclub. I started doing jokes about the shooting and the audience was laughing all the way through and you know, Joan Rivers has a large gay audience. One guy tweeted me and he said, ‘I never thought that I’d wake up crying and go to sleep laughing.'" It's easy to misunderstand people. And get upset. Whenever I'm made, I say to myself, "This means I'm not understanding something." So then I move that anger into curiosity. I kept asking Gilbert about his jokes. And we walked me through the humor. This episode will make you laugh and maybe uncomfortable but I promise the laughter makes it all worth it. The laughter is medicine for your day.

425 - David Rubenstein: The Importance of Having a Good 2nd and 3rd Life (Lessons From The Co-Founder of The Carlyle Group)
3342

I got nervous because David Rubenstein is the co-founder and co-chariman of The Carlyle Group, which is the biggest private equity firm maybe in the world. They own hundreds of companies and have $200 billion in assets. He's also the chairman of a lot of other things: The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, The Smithsonian and he also has his on show, "The David Rubenstein show," where he's interviewed so many brilliant people. His success could be intimating. But he doesn't want it to be. He said, "I'm 69. I didn't start Carlye until I was 37. Maybe people find what they love earlier. I found out later I life." Then he walked me through this. He told me how he stumbled into his new love for philanthropy and the careers he experimented with early on his life and how he learned how to develop new skills at different stages of his career (like motivation and persuasion.) David says this is all part of his third life. That's what this episode is about. The importance of having a good second and third life.

424 - Byron Allen: How To Make History in Your Dream Industry (A Story About Outsmarting The Standards)
6679

Bryon Allen has 3 rules in business: “Don’t let anyone come between you and the customer. Don’t run out of money. And don’t break rules #2 and #3.” But he didn’t know these rules when he got started. He says people weren’t betting on the young black boy born in Detroit… in the 60’s… to a 17-year-old teenage mother. But he defied the odds. And found his passion early on (age 12). This episode walks you through Byron’s success from comedian to writer to TV producer and distributor… all the way up to the top. Now, he owns “Entertainment Studios,” (the TV production company he started at his kitchen table). This is the story of someone who decides to make history.

422 - George Gilder: How to Think Like a Futurist
5586

George Gilder is a 79 year old super futurist. He’s the author of  #2 book in China, “Life after Google The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy.” I had him on the podcast because he’s somehow been able to predict the future for decades. Steve Jobs read his book in 1990 and passed it around to friends. “So I believe I had some vague influence on the evolution of iPhone,” George said. Now he’s investigating the future of blockchain, bitcoin and more. And in this episode, I ask him to teach me how to think like a futurist so I can profit (financially, creatively intellectually and personally).

David Goggins went from being 300 lbs to becoming a Navy SEAL. He also ran a 100-mile race AND he set the world pull-up record at 4,030 pull-ups in 24 hours. I told him I don't want to do any of that. But... I do want to learn the mindset he developed to achieve all of this and get out of his comfort zone.

418 - T.J. Miller: Don’t Take Yourself Seriously = Success
3903

TJ Miller is a comedian and actor. You’ve seen him in Silicon Valley, Deadpool, Ready Player One, and more. I kept asking him about his success. And how he got there. He told me to stop trying “manufacture” it. I laughed. He kept cracking jokes. He’ll make you laugh. And think. Because he studies a lot of philosophy. That’s where a lot of his comedy comes from. Absurdism + philosophy + storytelling. This episode will probably make you laugh and question at the same time.

 

One other thing...

Even though TJ told me not to formulae his success, I still did. Here is it... don’t take yourself seriously + hard work = success.

3978

I went on Jamie Kilstein's podcast. And the conversation got intense. So I asked to publish it on my podcast, too. Here it is. I wanted to repost it because he told me what he does to make an impact in life. And how this has changed for him over time. I could relate. I used to waste energy on things that don't matter. Or stop me from progressing in a way that actually makes me feel better than I did yesterday. So we talk about that. But also, comedy, some books we like, Twitter Wars, why I'm bad with money, why I'm good with money and more.

Phillip Stutts has been at the forefront of defining digital campaigning in politics. He has gotten presidents elected. He’s gotten senators elected. He’s gotten all sorts of political offices elected. I wanted to hear the strategy behind those wins. And how it can be applied to business. But I also wanted to ask Phillip about his rare, incurable disease. Because he set a goal to find the cure in 5 years. Even though he has absolutely zero experience in medical research or any of that, he felt inspired to “stop doing nothing.” So I ask him about that inspiration and drive, too.

Wyclef Jean is one of my favorite artists/rappers/creators.  He came from the worst ghettos in Brooklyn. And before that, he came from Haiti. I wanted to know how he took the leap... because so many people are afraid to try. He would imagine himself singing in front of audiences when he was just singing behind the counter at Burger King. And eventually, that vision was reality.

James Frey is a controversial writer. On purpose. He wanted to be “the most notorious writer in the world.” He ran off to Paris to be a writer when he was 21. He published a bestseller 12 years later ("A Million Little Pieces"). That’s 12 years of failure. He told me about those 12 years, his writing style, how he developed a voice, rehab, addiction, depression… but mostly about learning how to become yourself again.

Howard Marks is #374 on the Forbes richest list. He co-founded Oaktree Capital Management and is worth $1.9 billion. I asked, “Do you hate being introduced as a billionaire?” He said, “I do. I don’t think that how much money I have sums me up and I don’t think it’s the greatest thing about me.” And he’s right. He can’t teach you how to be a billionaire. He can only teach you what he knows: investing strategies, market cycles, philosophy, psychology, and how he used all of this to create freedom and wellbeing in life. He writes about this in his new book, “Mastering the Market Cycle: Getting the Odds on Your Side.” The book is as much about finance and market cycles as it is about personal cycles.

John C. McGinley has been in 80+ movies, he’s been in six Oliver Stone movies and all nine seasons of “Scrubs.” And now, he’s celebrating the 3rd season of “Stan Against Evil,” where he’s acting AND writing. We talked about acting, improving, auditioning. We talked about the pressure and who should not get into acting… But then about 45 minutes in, I asked him about his experience parenting a child with down syndrome. Four days into his son’s life, John had to make life or death decisions about heart surgery. His life focus changed completely. It had to. And John rose up to it. This podcast really touches on all aspects of life... everything from having a dream to fulfilling it and then seeing your life rotate. Something I think a lot of people can relate to.

I talk to Noam Dworman, owner of the Comedy Cellar about censorship, starting and running a small family-owned business, freedom of information vs. freedom of speech (which is more important?) and... Louis C.K.'s return to the stage. Some background: a few weeks ago, Louis C.K. showed up at the Comedy Cellar. Noam wasn't there. He got a text. "Louis's here." He saw it the next morning. Now everyone is asking Noam, "Where do you draw the line?" He's gotten death threats. I told Noam “When we were growing up no one had peanut allergies. A generation later, because we’ve disinfected everything, millions of kids have peanut allergies. And now, people are allergic to language. It doesn’t seem like this trend ever reverses. First, we were disinfecting our food. Now we’re disinfecting language. What’s next?"

403 - Robert Greene: The Laws of Human Nature... (Why We Are The Way We Are)
4911

Robert Greene is one of my all-time favorite authors and brilliant thinkers. He just came out with a new book, “The Laws of Human Nature.” And I can already tell you this going to be one of my top recommended reads for the next 10, 20, 30 years. It’s the type of book that makes me feel like my IQ is actually going up while reading it. It explains all of this hidden science behind human behavior. It explains why we see so much irrational behavior around us and in ourselves. Then he tells you ways you can start to change your behavior. And actually feel like you’re becoming who you want to be.

So enjoy this episode.

402 - Jocko Willink & Leif Babin: How Navy SEALS Lead
5409

Jocko Willink and Leif Babin are both Navy SEALS. They just came out with a new book “The Dichotomy of Leadership" where they break down all the mistakes leaders do, all the ways they get lost in ego, all the ways they forget to gain trust from their teams and lose.

They do they so you can win.

People fail at leadership everyday. I fail at leadership everyday.

I needed this book because it showed me some of my nature. And how I can counteract it. So I can achieve more. And my team can too.

401 - Chip Conley: Is Retirement Dead? How To Find Your Calling (Even When You're 50+)
3662

Chip Conley is the Head of Hospitality for Airbnb. He started working there at age 52. And quickly realized he was double the age of everyone in the room, didn’t understand the tech lingo, and was not there for the reasons he thought he was. “So I decided, ‘Gosh the only way I’m going to survive here is to be as much of a curious learner as the wise sage,” Chip said. And that’s what he did. Six and a half years later he’s still an advisor to the (now) billionaire founders of Airbnb. This podcast is perfect for anyone trying to find their calling. Or anyone trying to stay relevant in a quickly changing economic landscape.

[Special Edition]: I'm Celebrating 400 Episodes! (Part 1)
5922

I’m celebrating my 400th podcast episode. With a GIANT episode. I took clips from the last 100 podcasts and talk about what I learned from each one. It was so hard to pick which clips to do. There was over 12,000 hours of audio to pick from. So it was hard. But I got it down to 20-something clips. Thanks for celebrating 400 with me. And keep an eye out for when you start to see me get close to 500. I’ll throw a party and invite you. Thanks for listening.

399 - Neil deGrasse Tyson: What is The Truth? The Real Science of Inquiry
3574

“If the world ends it's because people in power didn't listen to the warnings of physicists,” Neil deGrasse Tyson said. Neil is the world’s window into physics. And he just came out with a new book “Accessory to War: The Unspoken Alliance Between Astrophysics and the Military.” He told me how physicists think. And this kind of thinking can be used to make you a better communicator, help you to avoid conflict, make smart decisions, but he also told me odd stories. Like how Columbus used astrophysics to exploit power, why E = mc2  gave us atomic bombs, who the first trillionaire will be, why physics stops Neil from having normal fights with his wife and more. If you don’t think you "get" science, you’ll be a new person after this podcast.

396 - Michael Ovitz: The Most Cut-Throat, Competitive Business in The World… How He Changed Hollywood
3311

My favorite movies wouldn't exist without Michael Ovitz. Think: Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters, Schindler's List! But he believes "great projects always surface." So I had him tell me about all the projects he worked with. And the talent (Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd and more). He told me how he left the mailroom of one talent agency to start his own. Which THEN became the biggest talent agency in Hollywood, Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Later on, Michael went on to become the #2 guy at Disney. Now, he has a bestselling book called, “Who Is Michael Ovitz?"

394 - Tucker Max: Speak Your Truth or Be Silenced [Part 1]
3651

I’ve known Tucker Max for 2 decades now. 20 years ago, he emailed me for advice. I told him to quit his job. And he did. He’s the bestselling author of “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.” And I always tell people that if they want to study good writing, go read 10 pages of Tucker's books. “My stuff blew up... All I did was stand up and use my real name and tell my real stories about my real life.” So now Tucker wants to help other people get out there and tell their truth. This part 1 of my interview will tell you how to separate the truth from everything else. Then (in part 2), Tucker will tell you how to deal with fear, how to find your audience, and how to write.

Beth Comstock was the Vice President of General Electric. And before that, she was President of Integrated Media at NBC. Both of those titles are proof that she figured out how to rise up in the most competitive corporate environments. She had to figure out how to spot trends, generate ideas, speak up, and so on. And she recently wrote about it all in her book, “Imagine It Forward: Courage, Creativity, and the Power of Change.”

392 - William Shatner: Live Long And ... Lessons from an Intergalactic Legend
3321

Captain Kirk has always been one of my heroes. So when Steve told me I'd get to interview the intergalactic legend, I immediately teleported back to my 11-year-old self. Star Trek made it possible for people to look up at the stars and wonder what else is out there. So I brought William Shatner on and asked him everything. He told me about the brief period in his career when he lived out of his truck, he told me what he's doing to live so long (he's 87), and then we had a BIG surprise. Michio Kaku (one of the most brilliant physicists alive today) was in the audience. Halfway through the podcast, we invited him on stage. If you've ever wondered what else is out there... in space and in your own life, the possibilities of true fulfillment, then you have to listen to this episode.

This interview is probably the most thought-provoking interview I've ever aired. Essentially, Yuval Harari is the expert on human evolution. I've recommended his book "Sapiens" more than any other book in the past 5 years. And not only me: Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg's say it's their favorite book, too. And now Yuval has a brand new book, "21 Lessons for The 21st Century," which covers so many topics: "the myth of free will," perception, mental health, the rise of robots, algorithms, hackers, how "The Automation Revolution" will impact the economy, your job, your quality of life and so on. Plus he tells us what you start can doing now to feel more comfortable and prepared for all these changes.

Brandon is a Navy SEAL. He’s experienced some of the most terrifying, life-threatening situations you can imagine. He’s also been through a divorce. So I like talking to him about that. And he also runs his own business (a media to commerce called the Hurricane Group).

He’s not getting shot at anymore. But he still has to deal with fear: business fears, family fears, money fears, etc.

“Fear is something we’re going to live with for the rest of our lives,” he said.

So I had him break down his process in his new book, “Mastering Fear: A Navy SEAL's Guide.”

My Biggest Fear Once Upon a Time
653

This is a clip from my interview with Brandon Webb, Navy SEAL and author of "Mastering Fear: A Navy SEAL's Guide." I like the book because the premise is really powerful. It's not about getting rid of fears. It's about learning practical tools to be able to handle fear... which is just part of life.

Finding Your “Network of Wisdom”
569

I'm not alone in my problems. But it's easy to think I am. And that's scary. It's miserable. So, instead, I lean on my "network of wisdom." A group of people who I can call when I need to. I have my accountant, my doctor, my writer friends, my podcast producer and so on. For every fear, there's a person.

388 - Robert Cialdini [Anniversary Episode]: 7 Techniques To Influence Anyone Of Anything
4024

Robert Cialdini is known as "The Godfather of Influence." People call him when they need to learn how to be persuasive & influential. And by "people" I mean some of the most powerful politicians, CEOs, and so on. The lessons Robert taught are still some of the most critical lessons I've learned on my podcast. So I'm excited to share it with you again one year later.

Dad Issues & Drinking Problems
657

Bert Kreischer told me about his relationship with his dad. And he makes it sound funny (because he's a comedian), but then Bert says, "We all have issues with our dad." Which may or not be true, but at least, I feel comfort in hearing someone else share what they go through. Plus, Bert makes it funny. So there's that comedic relief.

The Power of Perception - Bert Kreischer on "Finding Out He Was Fat"
1174

Bert took his shirt off on stage. He did an hour special on Netflix called "Secret Time" and he's topless the whole time. Someone even wrote him a 5-page letter explaining why it offended her. Bert didn't care. But what I thought was even funnier than that is the fact that he says he didn't know he was fat. "I thought I looked good." Here's Bert on the power of perception.

What's Your "Natural Personality?"
1124

When Bert Kreischer was little, he did some cute little kid thing on the baseball field. But his dad didn't think it was cute. Or appropriate. And Bert says that "who that kid was" is the core of his "natural personality." Which mirrors the fact that we all grow up somehow. And we all stay the same, too. 

 

This is just one of many moments from my interview with Bert Kreischer. If you like this, then please subscribe and check out the full interview.

387 - Bert Kreischer: Wanting to Be Liked & Learning How to Tell Hilarious Stories
7397

Bert Kreischer is a comedian and storyteller. He said he had to learn how to tell stories because he wasn't "a hot chick." He needed a skill or a talent and then he'd be liked. So in the 9th grade, he started practicing. Now he's 45. And he's been doing stand-up for most of his life. In this interview, I ask him about his need for approval, what his dad thinks of his career, the changing landscape of TV and entertainment and how anyone can become a creative if they just use the right tools and lens. But I also split this episode up into smaller pieces, which you'll see on your podcast feed if you subscribe. Because the interview is so long (2 hours) I wanted to give you a chance to enjoy and learn and laugh without having to give such a big commitment to the show. And if you like it, hopefully, you'll come back and listen to the full episode or share the parts you like with your friends. Either way, thanks for being with me while I try something new today.

386 - Bassem Youssef: The Bravery to Speak Out (How He Risked Everything to Create An Impact)
3667

Bassem Youssef risked everything to create an impact. He was living in Egypt. And a revolution was happening. Everyday, he would go to the streets of the protests and try to help the wounded. Then he’d go home. And watch the news. That’s when he saw how the media was lying to the people. So Bassem started a Youtube channel where he reported what was REALLY happening in his country. He did this with satire and comedy. He relieved the tension of the country. Egypt has 80 million people. And in weeks, 30 million were watching Bassem. And the weird part is he had no background in media. Bassem was a heart surgeon turned truth teller. And he was rewarded for it. In 2013, “TIME Magazine” named Bassem Youssef “one of the most influential people in the world.” This podcast is about the revolution in Egypt and Bassem’s journey through it. But it’s also about creating content people want and need. And telling a story that changes lives.

385 - How Failure Turned Me Into An Idea Machine
2698

I have a trick to getting unstuck. I do it everyday. It works. And I’ve done it everyday for 16 years. I’ve written about and done talks. And then I went on Carolina Millan’s podcast, “Beyond the Hustle.” She read my book, “The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth” and said it really changed her life. So I wanted to share the interview with you. So you can become an idea machine and start to create new opportunities for yourself too.

2605

Rob Corddry is an actor and writer. He plays Joe in one of my favorite HBO shows, “Ballers.” He’s also been in “Hot Tub Time Machine,” and was a correspondent on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart. This is where Rob developed his iconic character: the likable jerk. I wanted to understand how he created this character. Because he looks like he’s having so much fun being it. And I think there’s something to that… to learning how to like the character your living.

Joe Moglia completely reinvented himself. Twice…   He went from college football coach to CEO of Ameritrade and then BACK to football (his first love). He was at the top of the corporate ladder. And decided to climb down for a coaching internship at the University of Nebraska. I wanted to know why he wasn’t afraid to change careers so drastically. And how he transferred the skills he learned from one industry to a completely different industry… creating a double reinvention.

381 - The Power of the Ask
2598

Steve Cohen, my producer, emailed Taylor Swift’s publicist asking if she’d come on the podcast. He knew she was going to say “no.” But he still did it. Steve sends out 200 emails a day, knowing 100% will come back as a “no.” I’m fascinated by this. What’s the point? Where’s the line between annoyance and persistence? I brought Steve on to go over this. I wanted to know the nuances and the subtleties. Because this skill is good for anyone to study. Businesspeople, salespeople, building relationships, finding your mentor, and so on. This is the art of the ask.

2950

This is the 5th anniversary of my book “Choose Yourself,” which I am so proud of. The book took off in ways that I could not have expected. I self published it thinking only my family would read it and a few friends and now it has over a million copies published in 20 different countries. Plus, I get emails and letters everyday from people like you who say it’s helped them either get unstuck or take a chance they were too scared to. Or anything. So I’m happy I get to celebrate it with you. There’s a special announcement waiting for you in this podcast.

 

Enjoy!

380 - Henry Winkler: "The Fonz" On Finding Your Identity Again
2765

I interviewed “The Fonz!” aka, Henry Winkler. Henry played the Fonz on “Happy Days” for ten years. But after Happy Days ended, he got stuck. “I didn’t have a plan b,” he said. “I just lived my dream for the last ten years. And I did not have anything to replace it with. I was psychically in pain. When you don’t know what you want, it literally hurts your head. I was sad. I didn’t know what to do, so I did nothing.” He went nine years without an acting job. “It was a rudderless time,” he said. So I wondered how he got out of that rut. Because he did escape that pain… He’s in “Arrested Development" and “Barry,” which is a new Emmy nominated comedy airing on HBO.

Cal Fussman was the Editor at Large at Esquire for years where he got to interview Muhammad Ali, Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Robert DeNiro and hundreds more. So he’s really known as an all star interviewer. He asks big questions. And now he’s interviewing me, which is also live on his podcast “Big Questions.” He named the episode “James Altucher on Reaching For Your Future and Letting Go of Your Past.” So, I guess that’s what this episode is about. He said, “I’d like to go to the start and see the arch of your life.” And I hope you let this episode be an invitation for you to explore your own story arch, too.

377 - Roy Niederhoffer: Trading Against Your Instincts: How to Make Money in The Market
4150

This is a must listen for anyone interested in money, wealth creation, investing strategy, crypto, psychology, economics, etc.

Roy Niederhoffer is a super investor. And founder of a billion dollar hedge fund. He started earning six-figures at age 13! He taught himself how to code and then started a software company with his friends. He used the money he made to fund his education at Harvard, where he studied neuroscience. And now he applies what he learned about the brain and human behavior to the market.

And it only gets more impressive when you find out that he really came from humble beginnings (his father was a cop). So, this interview will cover everything from investing strategy to the future of currency PLUS book recommendations, methods to stay motivated and more.

376 - Seth Godin: Go Back to What Lights Your Heart on Fire: This is What Makes a Hit
3107

Seth Godin is best known as marketer and an author. But I think of him as one of the great thinkers we have today. He doesn’t create for the masses. He creates for a core group of people. Seth says to imagine this (it’s the essence of his creation, his art and his business): “You have a microphone, what are you going to do with it? My formula is I wake up in the morning and think about the people I seek to serve. That’s all I do. And I don’t reverse engineer it. I make it so that I can actually do my work.” He asks himself, “What change am I trying to make here?” And he wants you to ask yourself this, too.

375 - Bishop T.D. Jakes: How to Evolve, Where to Go Next and What Step to Take
3334

Bishop T.D. Jakes was not born with “Bishop” in his name. He’s a preacher. The first one on my podcast. But he’s ALSO an entrepreneur (His business is his church and he has an entertainment company called TDJ enterprises). Every week, Bishop T.D. Jakes gives sermons to tens of thousands of people on multiple platforms (online and off). And people watch from all over the country. So I asked him about that (building an audience, find what you love, pursuing it, etc.) And I asked about his business. He gave me so much knowledge about entrepreneurship. And his most recent book, “Soar!: Build Your Vision From the Ground Up” says how anyone (from beginner to expert) can adopt his principles. We packed so much valuable information into the hour we were together. Everything from reinventing the choices we make to “purpose over profit” to why failure is priceless.

374 - Robert Greene: The Laws of Mastery: Know What You Want & How to Master It
2158

Five years ago I interviewed one of my all-time favorite authors and brilliant thinkers. Now, I’m bringing this interview about mastery back to the surface. Before you can master something, you have to know what that “something” is. We all want to master something. And live to our full potential. That’s why we ask ourselves questions like, “What’s my passion?” and “What do I love?” Robert Greene told me his theory: find your voice, connect with your likes and dislikes. He digs into these strategies but also talks about seduction, manipulation, regret, writing and why he thinks everybody has creative potential.

373 - Sasha Cohen: How to Relentlessly Pursue Your Dream
2943

Sasha Cohen is a World Champion ice skater. She won silver in the 2006 Winter Olympics when she was just 22 years old. Which means she had to start early. I wanted to know how she figured out what her dream was. (Because I think that’s hard at any age.) And I wanted to know how she became one of the best in the world at her thing. Her pursuit is relentless. Her focus is obsessive. And now she's sharing how to chase your dreams. And then make it happen...

Mike Reiss started writing for The Simpsons because NO ONE else would take the job. They didn’t know they were passing up the opportunity work on what would soon become the #1 animated series on prime time TV. Mike has tons of stories about TV writing, comedy, and creating something people love. His secret: “We said, ‘No one’s gonna watch this so let’s just make this for us.” In this episode, Mike tells me why he took a chance, why he wasn’t afraid, and how it became the most fulfilling career move he ever made.

367 - A.J. Jacobs: Immerse Yourself in The Creative Process

AJ Jacobs is entertaining. I think that’s the first thing I should say before I also say that he’s a six-time New York Times bestselling author. All his books are funny. And they’re extreme. I’ll explain. AJ comes up with crazy ideas and then gives us his “normal” way of life to fully immerse himself in a new (but temporary) way of life. This time he’s traveling the world to thank a thousand people who all had a hand in making his daily cup of coffee.

366 - Ken Langone: Billionaire Co-Founder of Home Depot
6880

Ken Langone is a billionaire. He co-founded Home Depot and he’s also been on the boards of some of America's most renowned companies. Ken talked to me about capitalism, (his book is called “I Love Capitalism!: An American Story”), corporate governance, morality, and picking good people to invest in. But I also always say that this podcast is not just about business. I also got to learn from Ken about self-respect, death, having a good outlook on life and following your gut. His success is proof that you can live well and live true to yourself. That’s what I hope to keep learning for myself.

4007

Tom Papa was afraid to follow his dream (like everyone else). But he put it to the test. He went up on stage, got laughs, and kept going. Now he has 5 different income streams (all because he took that first leap). He’s got a new TV show coming up, a podcast, a radio show, live events and comedy tours, plus he also just wrote a book, “Your Dad Stole My Rake: And Other Family Dilemmas.” These opportunities didn’t come to him over night. He’s been doing comedy for 25 years. He put his dream to the test. It was the scariest thing he’d ever done. I wanted him to share his story. And the courage.

362 - Dani Zoldan: Reflecting on Reinvention: Why Stand Up Saved My Life
4140

I’d always been interested in comedy, but I was completely terrified to go up on stage. But now  I’m obsessed. I interview as many of my favorite comedians on the show as I can, so I could learn from them. I want to know everything. Not just from comedians. But from everyone in the industry. And Dani Zoldan, owner of Stand Up NY, is the one who convinced me go on stage consistently. So I went up 6x a week. I got good. Stand-up comedy is by far the hardest skill I’ve ever wanted  to learn. And now, I needed to reflect. I’ve been doing stand up close to 3 years now. I own part of a comedy club. I’ve gone all in. I wanted Dani to interview me because he was the person who encouraged me the most in the beginning. This is my stand up journey…

Jesse doesn’t remember anything he learned from college except for ONE lesson. He calls it “the $160,000 lesson.” He almost breezed by it. I had to stop him. “What was the lesson?”

It’s a strong lesson. And if I try to write the whole story in this box, it’ll lose it’s power.

I wrote about it here. Or you can listen to the podcast now [it’s in the first 2 mins]. It’s worth it. Jesse is one of the most naturally motivating people I’ve ever met. And it’s contagious.

Joey Coleman knows relationships. Business relationships, romantic relationships. “It’s all part of the human condition,” he says. He also got himself out of 76 traffic tickets. And it’s all because of this one trick: he goes a level deeper. And then another level and another. Anytime I've made money, it's because of this trick. Joey's book is called, “Never Lose a Customer Again: Turn Any Sale into Lifelong Loyalty in 100 Days” and I trust Joey. His book and his talks all offer some of greatest value you’ll find for relationships, friendships, entrepreneurship, friendships, solo-preneurship, being an employee. Anywhere and in every area.

359 - Keith Hernandez: Talent & Obsession (A Formula for Grit)
2957

Keith Hernandez is arguably one of the best baseball players of all time. He played first baseman for the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals the majority of his career. He won two World Series titles (one with each team). He’s now apart of the broadcasting team for the Mets. And he just wrote a new book, “I’m Keith Hernandez: A Memoir.” He’s multi-talented. But before there was broadcasting and books there was no plan B for Keith. Everything he did was baseball. And he was sent to the majors when he was only 2 and a half years out of high school. So I wanted to know what transformed him from being a talented, obsessed kid to one of the best players of all time. And what kept him there for almost 20 years. This is the Keith Hernandez story…

358 - Heather Monahan: Create Confidence Up From Nothing
4925

Heather Monahan told me that with every decision you make, you’re either going to be building confidence or chipping away at it. So I wanted to learn how to be building it more often than I am destroying it. Because according to Heather, author of “Confidence Creator,” confidence is not static. It’s a muscle. And you can work on it at any stage of life. She says, “It’s not a natural gift. It’s practice.”

357 - Jordan Harbinger: How to Keep Growing and Keep Moving Forward
4670

Jordan Harbinger built a successful brand from podcasting for 12 years. He’s done close to 900 interviews with top performers. But something changed recently. He reached out to me via email. And I knew I needed to get him on the show right away. He told me that he didn’t like his brand anymore. He didn’t like what it was morphing into. “I was becoming disillusioned,” Jordan said. So he took a step back. And after what he thought was an amicable split from his partners, he and his team got fired. PAUSE. This is awful. I’ve been through my own terrible losses before. So I can say fully that what Jordan did next was the definition of a true entrepreneur.

356 - Steve Cohen: The Tao of Steve Cohen, A Shortcut to Wisdom
4712

I hired Steve Cohen. He produces this podcast. And I wanted him to be on the show because he has a mutant superpower. All my guests do. But his superpower really blows me away. I can barely understand how it comes so natural to him. But it does. Steve is a friend to thousands and thousands of people. He knows everyone and their mom, their manager, their business. He’s built up genuine goodwill with so many people. And I look at that as a superpower because it’s not your typical “networking.” It’s more than that. It’s networking with meaning. Or as Steve says, “it’s friendship.” I wanted to interview Steve about how he got this talent. And he kept me laughing the whole way through. Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing: Steve Cohen!

355 - Shane Snow: Are You Ideal to Work With? (What Makes a Good Team)
5415

This is Shane Snow’s third time on the podcast. And we had a lot to cover. Shane is the author of, “Smartcuts: How Hackers, Innovators, and Icons Accelerate Success.” (An incredibly intelligent book.) And he’s also the cofounder of “Contently,” a content strategy company that helps businesses grow. Shane’s taught me a lot about solving problems in unconventional ways. And in this episode he teaches me about the 4 elements that make someone “ideal to work with.” See, he’s been studying teams. And just wrote a book about it (coming out in June) called “Dream Teams: Working Together Without Falling Apart.”

354 - Mike Massimino: You Can’t Control the Outcome, So Keep Doing What You Love
3941

It took Mike Massimino 11 years to achieve his childhood dream of becoming an astronaut. He was rejected 3 times. But he never stopped his pursuit to achieve his dream. He writes about it in his New York Times bestselling book “Spaceman: An Astronaut’s Unlikely Journey to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe”. This is Mike’s 2nd time on the podcast and I wanted to ask him all the questions that have stuck with me ever since that first interview. Like how he kept trying even after that 1st rejection.

353 - Maria Konnikova: How to Look at Life Like a Game and Make Better Choices Because of It
5452

Maria Konnikova is a journalist. She’s written two New York Times best sellers. One about con artists and having the confidence to get away something. The other is about how detectives think. But now she’s immersed in poker (for her next book). And making big money (she made $200,000 in her first year playing). That WAS NOT the plan. She wanted to write a book about luck. Now, she’s on her way to play in the world series. She taught me about “game theory,” which is “when you look at the world like a game, where everyone has certain payoffs for certain decisions,” she said.

352 - Tony Hawk [Anniversary Episode]: The Key to Having Abundance in Life is Persistence
3288

Tony Hawk is a professional skateboarder AND world champion for 12 years in a row. Every single day, since he was 11 years old, he’s done what he loves to do: skateboarding. I interviewed him at an event in 2016. And Tony was skating before the interview. It’s what’s most natural to him. But he also built a brand and an empire from his success. He’s sold over a billion dollars worth of video games with his name on it.

351 - Sherrod Small: The Benefit of Starting at The Bottom (You Get to Rise)
3543

Sherrod Small is a comedian, all around personality, actor, writer, producer, podcast host of "RaceWars". He’s done everything. He grew up in the comedy clubs with his cousins, Chris Rock and Tony Rock. And he could’ve taken a shortcut, but he chose not to. "We wanted to start from the bottom of the bottom,” he said. “We wanted to know every aspect of this business. And we wanted to grow our own voice.” He told me his path to success. It’s applicable to more than just someone who wants to pursue stand-up. He talked to me about enthusiasm and experience. And why he recommends you skip taking shortcuts when you feel the excitement.
