Some of the highlights of our conversation include: Tony's best investment ever Quotes he lives by (and how he puts them into action) The worst advice he regularly hears Why he changed his diet for the first time since age 17 And much, much more Without further ado, please enjoy this follow-up conversation with Tony Robbins.

The Tim Ferriss Show: #352: Dr. Peter Attia vs. Tim Ferriss

Podcast cover
Read more

"Unhappiness is at the root of more pain, I would suspect, than any ailment that falls in the 'physical' body. And to think that we have compounds that could play such an important role that are really facing challenges in getting approved, I just find that really frustrating." — Dr. Peter Attia This is a special episode and features one of my dear friends. A number of guests have started incredible podcasts after being on this show as their first-ever podcast interview, including legendary Navy SEAL commander Jocko Willink. What people don't know is that Jocko was introduced to me by a fella named Peter Attia. Dr. Peter Attia (TW: @PeterAttiaMD, IG: @peterattiamd, peterattiamd.com) is a former ultra-endurance athlete (e.g., swimming races of 25 miles), a compulsive self-experimenter, and one of the most fascinating human beings I know. He is one of my go-to doctors for anything performance or longevity-related. He is also easily the best quarterback and sherpa for the US medical system I've ever met. But here is his official bio to do him justice: Peter is the founder of Attia Medical, PC, a medical practice with offices in San Diego and New York City, focusing on the applied science of longevity. Peter trained for five years at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in general surgery, where he was the recipient of several prestigious awards, including resident of the year, and the author of a comprehensive review of general surgery. He also spent two years at NIH as a surgical oncology fellow at the National Cancer Institute where his research focused on immune-based therapies for melanoma. He has since been mentored by some of the most experienced and innovative lipidologists, endocrinologists, gynecologists, sleep physiologists, and longevity scientists in the United States and Canada. Peter earned his M.D. from Stanford University and holds a B.Sc. in mechanical engineering and applied mathematics. In our conversation in this episode, Peter actually interviews me, though he shares a lot of his own experiences. It is audio from Peter's incredible podcast, The Peter Attia Drive, which can be found on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or anywhere podcasts are found. It is one of the few podcasts I listen to regularly. Many friends I've shared this particular episode with have now listened to it multiple times. It takes us both a few minutes to warm up, but then it goes really deep. These are many of things people like Peter and I aren't supposed to talk about publicly. Please enjoy! This podcast is brought to you by Peloton, which has become a staple of my daily routine. I picked up this bike after seeing the success of my friend Kevin Rose, and I've been enjoying it more than I ever imagined.

The Tim Ferriss Show: #342: Sam Harris, Ph.D. — How to Master Your Mind

Podcast cover
Read more

Sam Harris (@SamHarrisOrg) received a degree in philosophy from Stanford University and a Ph.D in neuroscience from UCLA. Sam is the host of the Waking Up podcast, and he is the author of multiple books including The End of Faith, Letter to a Christian Nation, The Moral Landscape, Free Will, Lying, Waking Up, and Islam and the Future of Tolerance (with Maajid Nawaz). This experimental episode came about because a few months back Sam asked me to be a beta tester for his Waking Up meditation app that he was creating at the time. It was recently released, and I highly recommend it. I anticipated it would be good because Sam's work is always good, and he's one of those rare humans who seems to think and speak in finished prose, and he has a voice that can very easily lull you into a semi-psychedelic state while you are completely sober. You'll hear what I mean soon. Sam has a unique combination of experiences and areas of expertise, and his approach is that of a logical progression of layering on different types of training for learning the skill of meditation. In this episode, Sam will discuss his experiences with MDMA, his spiritual exploration, contact with so-called gurus, duality versus non-duality, and lots more. If you want to dive right into a beginner level guided meditation, skip to [52:32]. Make sure to check out the bonus episode that is released at the same time as this one if you enjoy what you find here and want to jump straight to the guided meditations. The bonus episode also features additional content from Sam not found in the longer episode. Enjoy!  This episode is brought to you by LegalZoom.

The Reboot Podcast: #94 When Is Enough, Enough for Me? - with Steven Kane & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more

For leaders in the modern world, dodging the constant bombardment of projected successes that others display across various media outlets can be exhausting.  Comparing ourselves to others can lead to an overwhelming sense of inadequacy, which often ripples out to thoughts of insecurity about our work, our relationships, and the way we are perceived by our peers. As Theodore Roosevelt so poignantly observed, “Comparison is the thief of joy.” By allowing our gaze to become so outwardly attuned, we create an internal roadblock against finding peace and equanimity within our own lives. On this episode of the Reboot Podcast, Jerry is joined by longtime friend and self-described serial entrepreneur, Steve Kane. In this discussion, Steve comes to Jerry with the lingering question, “When do we begin to know when enough is enough?” Together, they explore the pivotal role Steve’s father played in molding the baseline for determining his “enough,” and how his own radical self-inquiry supported Steve in making a difficult decision during the successful exit of his third startup, Gamesville. As they ponder the question of ‘enough,’ Jerry and Steve touch on the ways in which we, as humans, yearn for safety, love and belonging, and how, ultimately, our ability to expand our awareness of ‘enough’ is an act of continuous practice, one which allows us to take stock of our lives at any moment and truly consider, “When is enough, enough for me?” Links Steve Kane on Twitter - https://twitter.com/stevenkane Reboot Bootcamp - reboot.io/bootcamps Leave us a review on Itunes!
