General Misc. / The Tim Ferriss Show
« on: January 15, 2018, 02:10:20 pm »
I discovered this podcast a month or so ago because Tim Ferriss showed up separately on two different podcasts I already listened to. Apparently he hosts the single most popular podcast ever, period.

I've listened to a number of them going back but the impulse to link was the latest I've listened to: Jocko Willink: The Scariest Navy SEAL Imaginable…And What He Taught Me

Every episode I've listened to by him so far is stellar though.

First episode with Obama. Next five episodes announced, one a month, I believe, with George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey, and Howard Stern.

I'm really looking forward to watching this - and already would have had I realized it previously aired in the UK. Anyone else seen it or heard of it?

Reading PKD definitely impacted me when I was a teenager.
