Favourite Tim Ferriss Podcasts

Spent part of my vacation last week catching up on podcasts.

The best of these was my favourite interviewer Tim Ferriss being questioned by The Power of Broke author Daymond John.

Tim describes his visit to 27 different companies to find someone willing to publish the 4-Hour Workweek. (See my review of that book here.) He also talks about practicing speeches to dogs, his efforts trying to meditate and the positive results of his volunteer efforts.

If you like this discussion, you’ll probably also enjoy some of the best Tim Ferriss interviews. They include two interviews with Queen’s University graduate Peter Attia, one with gaming expert and concussion healer Jane McGonigal and another one with Gabrielle Reese, her husband and another guy.

I like these conversations because they last for a long time—up to 2 hours—and yet they’re really focussed on how people create successful businesses, lives and communities by changing their habitual routines.

The interview with Peter Attia, for example, had me try out a three-day-long fast, which I’ll be repeating every Easter to include Good Friday. Jane McGonigal spoke about how she used her gaming training to recover from a very serious concussion, which gave me some insight about what my daughter went through last year. Gabrielle Reese didn’t get to speak as long as I would have liked, but she made some interesting points about her challenges with work life balance and the need for understanding and flexibility in a strong marriage.

Tim Ferriss releases a new podcast interview with someone brilliant every week, and they’re always worth listening to. I highly recommend subscribing.

Oh yeah, and in one of his recent interviews, Tim mentioned that he wants to come to Montreal. I’ve been asking everyone I know to invite him in 2016, but @NextCityOrg, can you also invite him for the 2017 Next City Vanguard? Thanks.
