Roll On: Body Brokers

This is a story of spiritual swindlers. Sober living scammers. Underground insurance fraud. And widespread institutional neglect.

In today?s edition of ?Roll On?, Adam Skolnick and I discuss the rampant corruption incident to unregulated addiction treatment centers?brutal truths brought to light by the new independent film Body Brokers. We share good news and bad. We perform a bit of show and tell. And as always, we answer listener questions.

For those new to the podcast, Adam Skolnick is an activist and veteran journalist best known as David Goggins? Can?t Hurt Me, co-author. Adam has written about adventure sports, environmental issues, and civil rights for outlets such as The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men?s Health. He is the author of One Breath and is currently hard at work on a novel.

Some of the many other topics explored in today?s conversation include:

an update on Adam?s preparation for the Goggins? 4 x 4 x 48 challenge;the Iron Cowboy?s ?Conquer 100? challenge;gravel cycling & Rich?s Specialized ambassadorship;the new documentary ?Diving Deep? and the life of activist Mike deGruy;Barack Obama?s new podcast and the future of the podcasting;the recent rise in Asian hate crime; andLawrence Ferlinghetti?s impact on free speech?and what it means today.

In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

If you could have a conversation with three luminaries living or dead, who would you choose?How do you make time to pursue ultra-running without disrupting work and family balance?What books, podcasts, and other types of media do you consume?

Thank you to Josh from North Carolina, Tara from Long Beach, and Emily from Minneapolis for your questions. If you want your query discussed, drop it on our Facebook Page, or better yet leave a voicemail at (424) 235-4626.

The War of Art: Steven Pressfield

We all experience it. That invisible, self-sabotaging force that lives between you and your most expressed self. Today?s guest calls it ?Resistance?. He?s cracked how to overcome it?and the process required to birth your best work.

Meet author Steven Pressfield?a man who has profoundly impacted my life and how I pursue creative expression.

A former Marine, Duke graduate, and journeyman of countless jobs, Steven had been writing in obscurity for three decades before his first published novel became a smash success. Molded on archetypes lifted from the Bhagavad Gita, The Legend of Bagger Vance made it?s way all the way to the big screen, starring Matt Damon and Will Smith.

Now revered for his creative prolificacy, Steven has 20 books to his name, including the military novels Tides of War and Gates of Fire, currently on the curriculum at the Naval War College and West Point.

More relevant to today?s discourse, Steven has authored some of the most impactful books ever written on the fundamentals of pursuing a creative life. Collectively, The War of Art, Do The Work, and Turning Pro are books I?ve read and make a point to re-read annually. Practical treatises on the human relationship with authentic expression, they provide a disciplined approach to birth the work we were born to create.

Steven?s latest offering, A Man At Arms, is a historical novel about the Roman Empire, a reluctant hero, and the rise of Christianity in First Century Jerusalem. Cinematic in it?s sweep, think Gladiator meets The Road Warrior.

A personal hero, meeting Steven has always been a dream. Today he shares his story. And it?s everything I hoped it would be.

Steven will tell you that creativity isn?t about talent. It?s about discipline. But it?s also about reverence for the mystical?courting The Muse to connect with that inimitable force that breathes beyond our conscious awareness.

However, The Muse only shows up when you respect the grind as sacred.

An excavation of this process, this conversation is an absolute masterclass on all things creativity, served up with a healthy dose of perseverance, persistence, patience, and the heavy lifting required to eliminate distraction and make manifest the dormant, authentic voice within.

It?s also about dispelling the myth that great art is the purview of the chosen few. Or that it comes easy to those so touched.

We all have something worthy to say. We can all benefit from learning how to better express our truth.

?Our job in this life is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it.?

The spirit of this exchange is to empower this ideal.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Final note: Some unfortunate construction noise next door periodically invades the audio dojo. Apologies for the distraction.

I hold Steven and his work in the highest regard. My hope is that this conversation will leave you feeling the same.

Peace + Plants,

Everything Is A Practice: Raghunath Cappo

Replace ego with the eternal. Trade selfishness for service?and self-absorption for unity. Together, let?s explore the spark of divinity that resides within us all.

Meet Raghunath Cappo.

Punk rock icon. Spiritual warrior. Bhakti yoga devotee.

A teen in search of meaning, Ray Cappo fled his suburban Connecticut enclave for New York City?and found community among the misfits of Manhattan?s Lower East Side. He fell in love with punk rock, so he started a band and a record label. Success soon followed. By the late 1980?s, Youth of Today had thousands of fans, cementing Ray as a leading voice and trendsetter at the bullseye of hardcore culture.

However, a growing existential itch led Ray to call it quits. At just 22, he walked away from his band and label and decamped for India?a spiritual pilgrimage that led him to the holy village of Vrindavan.

It was there that Ray fell in love with the wisdom and traditions of Bhakti yoga.

It was there that he would remain for the next six years, living as a monk.

It was there that Ray became Raghunath.

This is the incredible story of a modern day yogi.

But it?s also about the search we all go on. The journey for personal meaning beyond the ego. And the quest for universal consequence beyond the material.

It?s about the timeless that lives and breathes within all of us?that which is eternal, and past our limited senses.

It?s about transcending the illusions that hold us back. What it means to truly devote oneself to greater truth. And the modern day challenges of trudging the path towards higher consciousness.

All told, it?s about what it really means to be a spiritual being having a human experience.

If you?ve enjoyed my conversations with musicians John Joseph & Toby Morse, spiritual leaders Guru Singh & Radhanath Swami, or modern seekers Andy Puddicombe, Jason Garner & Russell Brand, then I?m confident this will be your jam.

Thank you to Robert Sturman, Perry Julien, Sherry Sutton & Davy Greenberg for the portraits & photo use permission.

Let the Jedi Warrior training begin.

Like Streams To The Ocean: Jedidiah Jenkins

Today we get esoteric on the things that matter most?ego, family, friendship, love, work, death, and the soul. The value of living an examined life. And how sharing our uniqueness gives glimpse into the universal.

Returning for his third appearance on the podcast, our cipher for said exploration is one of my very favorite humans?a former social entrepreneur, human rights activist, and lawyer turned world adventurer, magazine publisher & mystic memoirist.

Meet Jedidiah Jenkins.

Several years ago, I stumbled across Jedidiah?s Instagram feed. His photos are always great, but it was his prose that altered my state. Enamored by his unique lens on the human condition, he quickly become my favorite follow.

Determined to learn more, I invited Jedidiah on the show (RRP #186), wherein he shared insights gleaned from an epic sixteen-month, 10,000-mile bike journey pedaling from Oregon to Patagonia. This conversation remains one of my favorites to date.

I then made him promise to return (RRP #395) upon completion of his first book, To Shake The Sleeping Self. A coming-of-age memoir set against the technicolor backdrop of his bicycle adventure, the book went on to become a New York Times bestseller, crowning Jedidiah as a new and compelling literary voice.

An exquisite storyteller with an elegant gift for exploring the interior landscape, Jedidiah has continued to mature as a writer. His latest New York Times bestselling flex, Like Streams To The Ocean, is a touching and immersive deconstruction of the things that make us who we are and the decisions that shape our one and only life. 

His best work to date, it?s a masterclass on leveraging the specifics of one?s experience as a vehicle to better connect with the universal the resides within us all.

So here we are again. Me wanting to know more.

This conversation isn?t about any one thing. It?s kind of about everything.

We discuss the writing process. How to find a voice. And what it means to be an observer of both nature and people.

We talk Enneagrams, the commodification of ?authenticity?, and how to cultivate focus in a distracted world.

It?s also about identity. Belonging. Finding meaning in work. And what it means to live a creative life.

It?s about the empathy required to find common ground with people of divergent world views. And why cultivating community is critical.

But more than anything, this is a meditation on who we are. Why we?re here. And the struggle to glean truth from the intangible.

To read more and listen click here. You can also watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

As brilliant in conversation as he is on the page, I relish our conversations. And this one does not disappoint.

Let your love affair with Jedidiah begin!

Adam Grant On The Joy of Being Wrong, The Power of Rethinking & The Future of Work

If knowledge is power, knowing what we don?t know is wisdom.

Now more than ever, opinions divide us. Meanwhile, our ability to effectively communicate has degraded, fueled by social media algorithms and self-selected information silos that confirm our biases, calcify our world views, and consequently drive us even further apart. As a result we suffer?individually and as a collective.

According to today?s guest?an expert in opening other people?s minds?the solution lies in thinking more critically, flexibly and scientifically. It?s about arguing like you?re right but listening like you?re wrong. Bringing curiosity and nuance to charged conversations. And learning how to embrace the joy of being wrong.

Meet Adam Grant, an organizational psychologist who specializes in how we can find motivation and meaning in work, and live more generous and creative lives.

After graduating from Harvard magna cum laude, Adam completed his master?s degree and Ph.D. at the University of Michigan in just three years. At 28 he became Wharton?s youngest-ever tenured professor, where he has been recognized as the top-rated professor for seven straight years, named one of the world?s 10 most influential management thinkers and listed among Fortune?s 40 under 40.

One of the world?s most-cited, prolific and significant researchers in business and economics, Adam is the author of several New York Times bestselling books that have sold millions of copies and been translated into 35 languages, including Give and Take, Originals, and Option B. His books have been named among the year?s best by Amazon, Apple, the Financial Times, and The Wall Street Journal and praised by J.J. Abrams, Richard Branson, Bill and Melinda Gates, Malcolm Gladwell, Daniel Kahneman, and Malala Yousafzai. 

Certain to be another culture-tilting bestseller, Adam?s new book, and the focus of today?s conversation, is  Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don?t Know.

In addition, Adam?s TED Talks on original thinkers and givers and takers have garnered over 20 million views. And when he?s not writing, teaching, parenting, or consulting on behalf of organizations like Google, the NBA, or the Gates Foundation, he hosts WorkLife, a chart-topping TED original podcast.

Equal parts fun and powerful, this conversation is about the importance and power of interpersonal and collective rethinking. 

We discuss strategies for engaging with others who see the world differently. And what we can learn when we lead not with argumentation but rather with curiosity and humility.

In a time of entrenched polarization, Adam creates space for nuance. He teaches us to think critically and carefully. To ask questions. And to hold our views flexibly. 

He also offers sage advice on work in the time of COVID, when so many people?s professional ecosystems have been turned upside down. 

My hope is that this exchange encourages you to identify your own biases. Emboldens you to connect more meaningfully with those who see things differently. And inspires you to relish in being wrong.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

It was an honor to hold space with a luminary I have greatly respected from afar. And to make a new friend along the way.

May this conversation leave you thinking more critically about your own beliefs?and more empathetically about others?.

Peace + Plants,

Alexi Pappas Is Bravey

What happens when you have two very big but different dreams vying for your focus? Do you choose one? Or do you risk it all to pursue both?

This was the dilemma faced by today?s guest?a woman who knows a thing or two about what it takes to execute at the highest level.

Meet Alexi Pappas?Olympic athlete. Award-winning writer. Filmmaker. And so much more.

An extraordinary runner, Alexi set the Greek national record in the 10,000-meters and competed for Greece at the 2016 Olympic Games. An equally noteworthy artist, her words have graced the pages of The New York Times, Runner?s World, Women?s Running Magazine, Sports Illustrated, The Atlantic, and Outside.

Not enough? In the exact same year she competed in the Olympics, she also co-wrote, co-directed, and starred alongside Rachel Dratch in Tracktown, her first feature film. Executing on just one of these goals is an exceptional accomplishment. Doing both in parallel is downright superhuman.

More recently, Alexi co-wrote and starred alongside Nick Kroll in Olympic Dreams, the first non-documentary-style movie to ever be filmed at the actual Olympic Games.

Profiled in every major publication from Sports Illustrated to Rolling Stone, my interest was recently piqued by an amazing New York Times OpDoc (produced by friend of the pod Lindsay Crouse), which poignantly portrays the emotional toll of chasing an Olympic dream.

In her excellent new memoir Bravey, Alexi dives deeper. An exuberant and unflinching primer on the struggle of self-actualization, it?s the beautiful story of surviving trauma and navigating disparate dreams?filmmaking and athletics?in competition for her attention. Why she refused to pick just one lane. And how, setbacks and deep lows aside, Alexi ultimately succeeds at both.

How is possible that this human is so good at so many things simultaneously? And what is the cost (if any) of setting the bar so high?

I needed to know more.

This is a conversation about the courage required to blaze your own path. It?s about self-belief. And it?s about setting audacious goals and how to work towards them.

It?s also about depression, loss and sacrifice.

It?s about the intersection of athletics and art. And how to prioritize synergy over balance.

But more than anything, this is about what Alexi calls being bravey.

In Alexi?s case, trauma helped fuel her success. But it was in healing that trauma that she learned to thrive?and find the joy in the journey.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

This one?s for all the Braveys and soon-to-become Braveys seeking to replace can?t with maybe.

Alexi is my new favorite person. Tune in and discover why.

Roll On: Merchants Of Chaos

Perhaps you thought 2021 might bring some return to normalcy. So far we have the Capitol insurrection, GameStonk and Jewish Laser Beams. We need to talk.

After a much-needed break, Roll On returns with my hype man Adam Skolnick, an activist and veteran journalist perhaps best known as David Goggins? Can?t Hurt Me co-author. Adam has written about adventure sports, environmental issues and civil rights for outlets such as The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men?s Health. He is the author of One Breath and is currently hard at work on a novel.

We are also mixing up the format with two special guests, Arthur Jones & Giorgio Angelini, the filmmakers behind Feels Good Man (and RRP 576). Serving as our internet culture decoder ring, the lads join the show to help make sense of recent events insanity.

Some of the many topics explored in today?s conversation include:

the importance of taking a sabbatical;the Capitol insurrection & the impact on the GOP;how Reddit turned the stock market upside down;the future of stock market democratization;David Lynch?s absurd yet wonderfully soothing weather reports;Ultra-runner Jim Walmsley?s 100k American record; andHow Nepalese climbers reached the summit of K2 in the winter for the first time.

In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

How do I focus & contribute when I?m so consumed by current events?How do I deal with colossal failure and set myself up for success?How did overcoming substance abuse change your mindset on fitness & life?

Thank you to Kevin from St. Louis, John from the Sierra Nevada, and Sarah from Phoenix for your questions. If you want your query discussed, drop it on our Facebook Page, or better yet leave a voicemail at (424) 235-4626.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

It?s good to be back!

The Minimalists: Less Is Now

How might your life be better with less?

Not so many years ago, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus were mired in the corporate grind, banking six-figure salaries in pursuit of the American Dream. Expiating for the satisfaction their careers failed to provide, they did what most humans would:

They bought stuff. Lots of stuff.

When that didn?t work, they bought more. And when that didn?t work, they hit bottom. What came next was a search for meaning that would forever alter the trajectory of their lives?and ignite the spread of minimalism across the world.

Known today as The Minimalists, Joshua and Ryan advocate for the pursuit of living less materially and more deliberately. Through their website, books, podcasts and films, they share practical, experience-based insights on how minimalism can lead to freedom?providing the foundation for a life built not on consumption, but instead on conscious purpose and mindful intention.

With a devoted readership in the millions, they?ve written several books, given TED Talks and spoken at places like SXSW and Harvard Business School. They?ve been featured on every major television network and profiled in major publications like The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and TIME.

In 2016, Ryan and Joshua made an unexpected splash when their Netflix documentary Minimalism enervated audiences around the world. Now they?re back with a brand new, must-see follow up, Less Is Now.

Given what these fine young gentlemen represent, I will restrain inclinations verbose to simply say that this is a conversation about how to live with greater intention and purpose.

It?s about creating more by consuming less. It?s about prioritizing experience over accumulation. It?s about growth, contentment and love. And it?s about the deep personal satisfaction that comes with contributing beyond ourselves.

In other words, minimalism isn?t martyrdom?it?s freedom.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Joshua, Ryan and their message is a gift. Receive it graciously. Then put it to work.

Feels Good Man! Arthur Jones & Giorgio Angelini On The Controversial Meme That Changed The World

In a spark of creativity, cartoonist Matt Furie created an innocent, loving frog he named Pepe. What came next is so insane, it literally bent reality.

Filmmakers Arthur Jones & Giorgio Angelini wanted to understand how this sweet and relatively obscure indie comic book character morphed into an infamous symbol of hate?and a meme that changed the world. The result is Feels Good Man?a filmmaking triumph and one of the best documentaries I?ve seen in years.

Premiering at last year?s Sundance, where it picked up the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Emerging Filmmaker, it?s the surreal story of Pepe The Frog. How it migrated across the internet, evolving into an unwitting avatar of chaos and a lever for radicalization. It?s about its creator Matt Furie?s efforts to reclaim his creation. And Pepe?s slow transmogrification back into a hieroglyph of positivity.

But beneath the surface, Feels Good Man is about artistic agency. It?s about the journey from passivity to participation. A sociological excavation of how culture spreads from mind to mind, it?s also an archeological dig into the indelible power of an idea. How a meme adopted by a regressive internet subculture spilled into the real world, shifted the political landscape, and ultimately tipped a presidential election.

The film is an absolute must-see. I wanted to know more. So today Arthur and Giorgio take us behind the looking glass on Pepe?s Frankenstein-meets-Alice-In-Wonderland journey.

This is a conversation about the complicated relationship between internet culture and the real world.

It?s about the strange relationship between comic book artists, arch druids, data scientists, intellectual property lawyers, and alt-right mouthpieces.

It?s about memetics?how memes drive cultural evolution in parallel with how genes influence human evolution. And, in this case, how one meme was perniciously coopted to democratize electoral engagement, enervating passive supporters into active participants.

But more than anything, this is about the war between cynicism and hope.

And why, to coin Matt Furie, you gotta go hardcore happy.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

I don?t understand why everyone isn?t talking about this movie and the ideas it presents. This conversation is my attempt to change that.

Mastering The Microbiome

Our bodies are comprised of about ten trillion cells. But only half those cells are human. The remainder comprise our microbiome?a vast and complex ecosystem of bacteria, viruses, and fungi that live in or on our bodies. Only now is science beginning to understand the profound impact of these microbes on human health.

We choose to believe that we are fully sentient and self-governing, wholly responsible for our health, moods and decisions. But the truth is far different. In fact, to a large extent, our emotional state, propensity for disease, the nature of our cravings, and even some of our decision making can be traced back to the nature of our gut ecology.

Most of these microorganisms are symbiotic. Maintaining a healthy culture of the right microorganisms is fundamental to good health. But should the quality of your microbiome go awry, health havoc ensues.

To better understand the vital role these microorganisms play in our health and lives, today?s show is a veritable microbiome masterclass courtesy of the gastroenterologists, scientific researchers, and gut experts that have graced the show over the years.

After 8+ years and 500+ conversations, I?ve compiled a vast library of bankable, timeless information and advice. As a steward of this archive, I feel a responsibility to convert the best of it into a more helpful, productive, accessible, and practical resource.

As an initial step toward this goal, I will be periodically offering curated wisdom focused on a specific theme or subject (as opposed to a guest). This episode is an embryonic experiment in doing just that?the first in what will be an evolving series of deep dives, commencing with this microbiome intensive courtesy of the following collection of past podcast gut health expert guests (all hyperlinked to their respective full episodes):

Robynne Chutkan, M.D.Ara Katz and Raja DhirZach Bush, M.D.Rhonda Patrick, Ph.D.Will Bulsiewicz, M.D.

Bonnie Tsui On Why We Swim

Unlike other land mammals, humans are not natural-born swimmers. Our evolutionary ancestors learned for survival. Now it?s one of the most popular activities in the world. So why do we swim? What is it about water that seduces us despite its dangers?

A lifelong swimmer reared by swimming parents, this week?s guest couldn?t shake this question. What she discovered is far more compelling than you might imagine.

Bonnie Tsui (@bonnietsui) is an alumnus of Harvard University, where she did not swim but instead rowed crew?and graduated magna cum laude in English and American Literature and Language.

In 2009, her book American Chinatown: A People?s History of Five Neighborhoods won the 2009-2010 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature and was a San Francisco Chronicle bestseller and Best of 2009 Notable Bay Area Books selection. She has been the recipient of the Lowell Thomas Gold Award for travel journalism and the Jane Rainie Opel Young Alumna Award at Harvard University. In 2017, she was awarded the 2017 Karola Saekel Craib Excellence in Food Journalism Fellowship by the San Francisco Chapter of Les Dames d?Escoffier. She is also the recipient of a 2019 National Press Foundation Fellowship.

A frequent contributor to The New York Times and California Sunday magazine, Bonnie?s latest book?and the focus of today?s conversation?is Why We Swim. Propelled by stories of Olympic champions, a Baghdad swim club that meets in Saddam Hussein?s palace pool, modern-day Japanese samurai swimmers, and even an Icelandic fisherman who improbably survives a wintry six-hour swim after a shipwreck, Bonnie dives into the deep, from the chilly San Francisco Bay to the South China Sea, investigating the ancestry and essence of water?s allure.

Widely lauded, Why We Swim was named to TIME magazine?s list of 100 Must-Read Books of 2020. It?s also received praise from The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Los Angeles Times, NPR, Buzzfeed, Bustle, Booklist, Kirkus, and more. Beautifully written and completely immersive, it definitely ranks among my 2020 favorites?I couldn?t put it down.

So let?s talk about it.

This conversation is a love letter to swimming?a sport, lifestyle and obsession that Bonnie and I share.

It?s a deconstruction of humanity?s relationship with the transformative power of water?an archeological dig that unearths mankind?s historic and fraught yet undeniably alluring connection with the sea.

It?s about swimming as a means of survival.

It?s about swimming as a conduit for well-being, competition, and community.

It?s about the unique power of water?when combined with breath?to produce that elusive state called flow.

But underneath it all, this is a conversation about why to be a swimmer is to be a seeker.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

It was an absolute delight to share space and passion with a woman who hopes, as Oliver Sacks writes in Water Babies, to ?swim till I die.? 

I concur with that idea. This conversation sheds light on why.

Karamo Brown Is Culture

You can?t grow if you don?t confront that which limits you. So face it. Ask for help. Have the hard conversations. Commit to the work. And I promise, your life will change.

I?ve seen it come to pass countless times?in myself and many others.

But few have more experience with personal transformation than Karamo Brown?a man who overcame tremendous adversity to enliven the best in others.

The ?culture? expert on Netflix?s massive hit show Queer Eye, Karamo is a father, former social worker, and psychotherapist who was first introduced to audiences on MTV?s The Real World in 2004. He continued to build their trust as a host on Dr. Drew Live, HuffPost Live, and Access Hollywood Live.

Karamo?s self-titled primer on emotional healing, Karamo: My Story Of Embracing Purpose, Healing, is an inspiring must-read for anyone grappling with adversity. In addition, he is the founder of 6in10, an organization that provides mental health support and education to the LGBTQ+ community, and the co-founder of Mantl, a skin-care line for bald men.

Today he shares his powerful story, dropping pearls of guidance in the process.

This is a conversation about culture beyond art museums and the ballet. It?s about how people feel about themselves and others, how they relate to the world around them, and how their shared labels, burdens, and experiences affect their daily lives in ways both subtle and profound.

It?s also about the culture of Karamo. Raised in the South by a Jamaican father and Cuban mother in predominantly white neighborhoods, it?s a story of overcoming personal issues of colorism, physical and emotional abuse. Alcohol and drug addiction. And public infamy.

But more than anything, this is a conversation about what holds people back. It?s about the importance of exploring our difficulties. And what?s required to transcend our past, move forward, and ultimately live our best lives.

To read more and listen click here. You can also watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify

I adore this man and I love this conversation.

Bryan Fogel: 'The Dissident' Filmmaker On The Global Surveillance State

Growing surveillance states. Tech intrusions on privacy. Cyber warfare. International dissent. Assassination.

In October 2018, beloved Washington Post journalist and Saudi citizen Jamal Khashoggi was brutally murdered and dismembered upon entering his country?s consulate in Istanbul. The perpetrator: the Saudi government. The reason: speaking truth to power. And yet, to this day, the Kingdom has yet to be held accountable for its actions.

It?s a story that shocked the world. Filmmaker Bryan Fogel was compelled to better understand just how such an event could occur. What he discovered was truly Orwellian?and far more disturbing than you can possibly imagine.

The result of this quest is The Dissident?a candid portrait of Khashoggi and the bone chilling events surrounding his murder that plays more like an international thriller than a documentary.

Best known for Icarus?his Oscar winning exposé of Russia?s elaborate state-sponsored Olympic doping program?Bryan?s follow up is incendiary. Expanding on themes related to those explored in Icarus, it?s controversial. Placing himself and those portrayed on screen at great personal risk, it?s courageous. It?s also expertly crafted. Executed with precision. And a film more than deserving of Oscar consideration.

Today Bryan takes us behind the scenes of The Dissident in a riveting tell-all conversation about the consequences of absolute power, global economics, citizen activism, and using your voice for change.

Tracking Khashoggi?s trajectory from reformist journalist to dissident to target, this is a discussion about the sacrifice of human rights when they transgress the consolidation of economic and political authority.

It?s about citizen activism. The rise of cyber warfare. And the weaponization of social media to both promote and commandeer global political narratives.

It?s about Mohammad Bin Salman?s unchecked power in Saudi Arabia. And how international financial interests compromise political and economic relations with the Kingdom.

Hollywood is not immune. In fact, Bryan is quite frank about how the industry that celebrated Icarus has snubbed The Dissident out of cowardice. Despite unanimous praise for the film after it?s Sundance premiere, every major distributor and streaming service (including Netflix, which released Icarus) declined to acquire the film due to the Kingdom?s influence over the entertainment business. Much like its protagonist, The Dissident was itself nearly dismembered. Nonetheless, the film will be available on-demand on January 8th.

Not to be missed, it?s an Oscar-worthy documentary that demands your attention.

One of the most important filmmakers of our time, it was an honor to reconvene with Bryan (check out our first conversation if you missed it).

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Strap in, because this conversation will leave you with more than a few important things to ponder.

Navy SEAL Rich Diviney On The Attributes That Drive Optimal Performance

t?s hard to predict success in the real world. But there?s a reason why some people thrive ? even when things get hard. But what exactly is that reason?

Today?s guest became obsessed with better understanding what differentiates those who prevail from those who fail. What he discovered would forever change the game.

Rich Diviney is a former Navy SEAL Commander who served up 13 overseas deployments over 21 years as an active member and officer of the armed forces? most elite, secretive group. A group that shall remain unnamed?but one I suspect you might quickly surmise.

Throughout his career, Rich was intimately involved in a specialized SEAL selection process, which whittled a group of hundreds of extraordinary SpecOps candidates down to a handful of the most elite performers. Oddly, which candidates washed out and which succeeded was often wildly unpredictable. Some could have all the right skills and still fail. Others more easily dismissible would ironically prove to be top performers. The seemingly objective criteria weren?t telling him what he most needed to know: who would succeed in one of the world?s toughest military assignments?

Over time, Rich began to see that beneath obvious skills are hidden drivers of performance,surprising core attributes?including cunning, adaptability, courage, even narcissism?that determine how resilient or perseverant we are, how situationally aware and how conscientious. This epiphany evolved into a SpecOps training program called MindGym?the first of its kind scientifically devised to help elite soldiers perform faster, longer, and better in all environments?especially high-stress ones.

In his new book, The Attributes: 25 Hidden Drivers of Optimal Performance, Rich defines and examines these various attributes to explain how we perform as individuals and as part of a team. As you may suspect, his military methodology is equally applicable to our personal and professional lives. Understanding the valence of one?s attributes not only promotes greater self-awareness, it provides a guiding rubric to train the characteristics that predict optimal performance in any situation?from parenting and sports to business and relationships.

Diviney currently works as a speaker, facilitator, and consultant with the Chapman & Co. Leadership Institute and Simon Sinek Inc. He?s taught leadership and optimal performance to more than five thousand business, athletic, and military leaders from organizations such as American Airlines, Meijer Inc., the San Francisco 49ers, Pegasystems, Zoom, and Deloitte.

Today he breaks it all down.

This conversation continues our annual tradition of welcoming the new year with a Navy SEAL?and the bankable life advice you need to embrace 2021 correct.

Of course, we review Rich?s career in the military. But this isn?t a conversation about feats of physical prowess. It?s about disposition and mindset. It?s about deconstructing what actually drives how we respond to the world around us?all to better understand the attributes that compel human behavior and potential.

A must-listen for anyone looking for deeper self-understanding, this is an incredibly powerful primer on how your attributes determine life outcomes?and how you can train said disposition to create more optimal performance in all areas of your life.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Final Note: Rich D. will be conducting a live event with podcast favorite Dr. Andrew Huberman, which will be available for all who pre-order his book, which publishes on January 26. Rich will also be giving away the ?Courage? chapter free upon pre-order. To reserve your copy & register, visit: theattributes.com.

I can think of no better conversation to harken in 2021. May it change your personal game. Because the new year is now upon is. And it requires everything we?ve got to give.

Best Of 2020: Part One: The Rich Roll Podcast

It?s time to pause. Reflect on the past twelve months. Set new aspirations. And visualize the year to come.

I think we can all agree it?s been a challenging year. All the more reason to optimize body, mind and soul to tackle 2021 correctly.

In furtherance of that end, allow me to introduce what has become a tradition on the RRP?our annual ?Best Of? series wherein we reflect upon the previous 12 months with a 3-part compilation of clips excerpted from a handful of the year?s most compelling guests.

Think of it as a refresher course for the avid fans. An anthology or digest for those newer to the podcast. A love letter to my guests. And most importantly, a way of thanking you, the audience, for taking this journey of growth alongside me.

Guests featured in this first of three total anthology episodes (all hyperlinked to their respective episodes) are as follows:

Chadd WrightKelly McGonigal, PhDDavid Sinclair, PhDRickey GatesGregg RenfrewZach Bush, MDDan BuettnerByron Davis & Phil Allen, Jr.Charles EisensteinKnox Robinson

Compiling this auditory yearbook is both a joy and a challenge. I have great fondness for all my guests. I take no comfort in leaving anyone out. Should you find one of your personal favorites missing, I get it?please don?t @ me!

The visually inclined can watch it unfold on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Here?s to an extraordinary 2021. Join me, and let?s make it the best year ever?together.

Joe De Sena Turns Quitters Into People Who Commit

Do hard things. Become unbreakable. Let?s end the year on a high note. It?s time to turn quitters into people who commit, courtesy of one of the toughest people on the planet. Fire ready aim!

If the name Joe De Sena strikes a familiar chord, it?s likely because he?s the entrepreneurial mastermind behind Spartan?the obstacle course racing series that became a global phenomenon. Fewer know he?s also the evil genius behind Death Race?perhaps the most absurd sufferfest ever conceived. 

Under appreciated is just what an utter machine this guy is. An absolute endurance freak, in a mere one week period, Joe completed the Vermont 100 mile run, Ironman Lake Placid, and the Badwater 135. In addition, Joe knocked off 50 ultramarathons and 14 Ironman events in a single year (a certain kind of insanity that must be some kind of record). To top it off, on a whim, he once ran from New York City to Vermont.

A man of questionable masochism, Joe knows hustle. But his relentlessness isn?t limited to athletics. It begins with business, servicing mafioso swimming pools as a Queens high schooler. It appears in academics. It took him four attempts to secure admission to Cornell. And, most importantly, it shows up in service. At his Vermont farm, Joe freely welcomes all who dare join in his legendary daily grind. Everything Joe does?be it Spartan, his books or public speaking?reflects his genuine commitment to helping millions of people live healthier more fulfilling lives.

Today he shares his extraordinary story.

This is a conversation about commitment to an ideal. How to manifest the better self within. And pay it back in service to others.

It?s about Joe?s colorful life path. His Goodfellas-esque upbringing. His natural-born entrepreneurial inclinations. His insane endurance feats and unique relationship with suffering. And the impenetrable focus required to accomplish lofty dreams.

But more than anything, this is about turning quitters into people who commit. It?s about why doing hard things makes you better, happier and healthier. And it?s about the potential we all possess to catalyze radical transformation.

From the heart, Joe is bullshit-free and 100% authentic. His message is powerful. Entirely experience-based. And paired with practical tools fundamental to shattering stagnation.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

May his words propel you to craft your own challenge for this impending new year?something extraordinary.

So let?s dive into it headfirst. Or, as Joe says, fire, ready, aim.

Olympian Caroline Burckle On The Power Of Vulnerability

Becoming an Olympic medalist doesn?t tell the story. It wasn?t until the klieg lights dimmed that she was compelled to meet herself. The inner journey that ensued forged the amazing person she?s now become.

Meet Caroline Burckle. Friends call her Burks.

A fellow former competitive swimmer, today?s guest is a 23-time All American and 2-time NCAA Champion. In 2008, she was crowned NCAA Female Swimmer of the Year in recognition of breaking Janet Evans? legendary 500 freestyle NCAA record?a seemingly impossible task and the oldest record on the books at the time. Later that same year, Caroline would qualify for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, where she won bronze as a member of the women?s 4×200 freestyle relay.

More interesting however, and certainly more relatable, is Caroline?s path post-swimming. A close cousin to my conversations with Olympians Anthony Ervin, Apolo Ohno and John Moffet, hers is a hard-wrought journey of self-discovery shrouded in institutional neglect and even, at times, abuse. Let?s just say she weathered some shit. But she faced it. She showed up and did the work. And she emerged at peace with her past and her self?now hellbent on helping forge healthier lives for the next generation of Olympians.

Beyond the play-by-play of Caroline?s storied career, her experiences as a young swimmer, and what it was like to stand on the Olympic podium, this is a conversation about the psychological struggles she faced as a prodigious athlete. Her battle with depression. And her familiar addiction to people-pleasing.

It?s also an alarming exposé on the harmful paradigms perpetuated by calcified athletic institutions?and what we must be done to better support the next generation of Olympians.

But more than anything, this is a playbook on how to find power in vulnerability. How to listen to your body. And most importantly, how to use your voice.

One of my very favorite people, Burks and I are buddies going back several years. A powerhouse and a humble empath, her energy is infectious. And I?m honored to share her story with you today.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

May her words inspire you to seek own your truth. To ask for help. Lean into vulnerability. And never stop learning.

Laird Hamilton Sees Life As Art

Legendary master of the big wave. Waterman god and sun-kissed global icon. Today one of the world?s greatest living athletes drops a master class on the value of pursuing adventure and embracing life as a work of art.

Meet Laird Hamilton.

Most are well-versed in the lore of today?s guest as perhaps the world?s greatest big wave surfer. Under-appreciated is his impact and legacy as a pioneer of crossover board sports that include tow-in surfing, stand-up paddle boarding and the more recent hydrofoil boarding explosion ? passions that have earned Laird the title as surfing?s biggest innovator.

An icon of fitness, longevity and well-being who has transcended the sport that made him famous, Laird and his wife Gabby Reece are the founders of Extreme Performance Training (XPT) ? a unique fitness training and lifestyle program that includes dynamic water workouts, performance breathing, high-intensity and endurance training and more. He is also the founder of Laird Superfood, a purveyor of high-quality functional blends, proteins, coffee beans, snacks and more. Ubiquitous on grocery store shelves across the country, the company recently enjoyed a successful public offering.

Profiled in every major media outlet across the globe, Laird has been featured in several films, including Riding Giants, an exquisite exploration of the history and art of big wave surfing. Finally, he is the author two books: Force of Nature, and his more recent New York Times bestseller, Liferider ? both inspiring reads for anyone looking to elevate themselves beyond the ordinary to do extraordinary things.

This is a conversation is about the internal Laird. What propels the relentless pursuit of adventure. His relationship with nature?s most intimidating elements. And how his fulfillment derives not from external validation but rather from competition with self ? and accomplishing what even he questions possible.

We explore his unique and always evolving training methods. His entrepreneurial journey. Marriage. Parenting girls. And turmeric.

But the heart of this exchange is a deconstruction of fear. The wisdom gleaned from gliding on the edge of disaster. And why it is crucial to always seek out that which scares you most.

Ask Laird and he?ll be quick to caution that we?re over-insulated from nature?s majesty. In turn, our intuitions have been muted. So, more than anything, this is a call to reconnect with that which makes us innately human ? to constantly push beyond our limits, seek out fear, and ultimately, embrace our lives as an evolving and precious work of art.

Not surprisingly, I found Laird to be both humble and wise ? a function of hyper-connectedness to both self and the outdoors. But I was also delighted to discover a human with an endearing and beautiful child-like wonder ? a trait we could all benefit from cultivating more.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

I loved this experience. May it leave you seeking to more courageously explore yourself and the world that surrounds you.

Justin Williams Is Reinventing Cycling

Out of 743 riders on the World Tour, the highest tier of professional road cycling, only 5 are black. Today?s guest is devoted to changing that. I wouldn?t bet against him.

Dubbed ?the most important bike racer you don?t know?, Justin Williams is an 11-time U.S. National Champion and 14-time California State Road and Track Champion. A rare sprinting talent from the get go, Justin was already crushing criteriums across the state as a teen en route to becoming the Jr. Track National Champ and a member of the U.S. National Team. In 2009 he joined the coveted Trek Livestrong U23 Dev Team. A launchpad to the majors, Justin?s dream of competing on the World Tour was becoming real.

However, despite Justin?s skyward trajectory and unbound potential, he quickly became disillusioned with the elitist aspect of the sport. Then he did the unthinkable: he quit.Departing Europe for home, he enrolled in college. Lived a civilian life. And let his bike collect cobwebs. For Justin, it seemed, cycling was over.

However, Justin?s younger brother Cory ? then making his own cycling waves ? had other plans, enticing Justin?s return to the sport through fixie racing culture. Revitalized by this dynamic community, Justin would soon discover renewed purpose on the bike. As an athlete who still had races to win. And ultimately as an advocate on a mission to redefine the sport he loves.

Thus was born Legion of Los Angeles: an independent elite cycling team dedicated to increasing diversity & encouraging inclusion in the industry. Translation: a launchpad for badass racers of varying ethnicities and backgrounds who don?t necessarily fit the status quo of the current whitewashed cycling program.

Today we explore Justin?s extraordinary story ? from his experience growing up in Los Angeles to immigrant parents through his blossoming love affair with the bike.

We dissect the sport of cycling and the industry that supports it. What?s great about it. What must change. And how Legion is leading the way by smashing paradigms and setting a new standard when it comes to supporting athletes and promoting inclusivity.

Wise beyond his years, Justin is passion in motion. A cycling hero. The embodiment of persistence. And a powerful reminder that what is most important about sport has nothing to do with podiums. Instead, it?s about the journey towards self-actualization. It?s about sharing experience. And above all, the impact you leave on others.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Equal parts important and entertaining, it was an honor to host this enlightening exchange with an athlete so devoted to positive change. Mad respect.

P.S. Thanks Alonso Tal for permission to use your epic action images of Justin. Also, Knox Robinson may or may not have dropped by. Just sayin?.

Blake Mycoskie: The More You Give, The More You Live

This is the story of a lifelong seeker. It?s about organizing your life around spiritual principles. Breaking the addiction to external validation. And always having the courage to fail.

Meet Blake Mycoskie.

Quite the change maker, Blake is most famously known as the founder of the wildly successful shoe company TOMS. He also pioneered the ?One for One? business model, donating a pair of shoes to a child in need for each pair sold. In turn, he sparked a generation of conscious consumers ? and rebranded corporate responsibility as not only cool, but de rigueur.

But Blake?s story neither begins nor ends with TOMS. 

A natural-born entrepreneur, Blake started 5 other businesses before TOMS. And he?s since moved on from his shoe empire to launch Madefor ? a ten-month program that applies key principles of modern neuroscience, psychology, and physiology to make your brain and body better.

This is more than the story of an incredible entrepreneur. It?s about navigating the world through a spiritual lens. And the power of commitment to persistent personal growth.

It?s less about TOMS and more about the kind of person that imagines TOMS. It?s about intuition. The stewardship required to scale an idea into a global phenomenon ? and the ongoing commitment to service that led to Madefor.

Blake is a very special human. It was an honor to finally spend some time with him. And a delight to share the experience with you.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

For those feeling stagnant or stuck, my hope is that Blake?s testimony ? chock-full of sage business and life advice ? ignites the inner change you seek most and guides you towards peace.

Madefor Discount: Blake is generously gifting my listeners with 20% off the Madefor program. Just use the code ?RICHROLL? at getmadefor.com. In full disclosure, I am not an affiliate nor do I have any financial entanglement or otherwise with Madefor ? just sharing the good news.

Ravi Patel's Pursuit Of Happiness

What?s the best way to grow old? Are we over-parenting our kids? And how can I strike the right work-life balance?

These are just a few of the questions Ravi Patel was struggling with. So the actor, filmmaker, husband and dad decided to explore how foreign cultures grapple with them. The result is Ravi Patel?s Pursuit of Happiness, a docu-series in which Ravi enlists his friends and family in overseas adventures in search of answers to life?s questions.

Perhaps you caught Ravi?s 2014 hit documentary Meet The Patels, a funny and touching first-person family adventure in which Ravi enlists his traditional Indian parents in his search for love, leading him down a rabbit hole into the world of arranged marriages.

Streaming on HBO Max, the new show digs even deeper ? a poignant and timely deconstruction of American exceptionalism that ventures beyond buddy travelogue tropes.

Today Ravi shares his story ? and the many lessons learned along the way.

Hardly your ordinary actor, this conversation begins with an exploration of Ravi?s unique path. His past life in investment banking. His current interest in health and wellness. His grapple with identity and indoctrination. And his sundry adventures navigating the vicissitudes of Hollywood.

We then pivot to the many nuggets of wisdom Ravi has gleaned from his personal journey. And we tug on the questions explored in his Pursuit of Happiness travels to Japan, Denmark, South Korea and Mexico:

Why are Americans so unhappy? How can you be a good parent? How do you find work life balance? And how can we responsibly promote inclusion for all?

Recorded pre-election, this conversation is equal parts light-hearted and profound ? a mix of laughs and uppercase Truths on all things love, partnership, parenting, purpose, and passion.

It?s also a friendship origin story. The first of what I anticipate will be more conversations to come.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

I love this guy and everything he?s about. And I hope you find this conversation as refreshing and uplifting as I did.

John Moffet On The Power of Olympic Aspirations

This is the story of an athletic prodigy. It?s also the story of heartbreak. And a hero that became a friend.

Meet John Moffet.

His journey begins at 11. To keep him out of trouble, John?s parents enroll him in swim lessons. Mere weeks later, it was clear he was special.

Within a year, John was obliterating national age group records. By 16 he made his first Olympic Team, becoming the youngest male athlete on the entire U.S.A. squad. But America would boycott the 1980 Moscow Games, robbing John and so many athletes of the opportunity to share their gifts on the world?s largest stage.

Four years later, John ascended the starting blocks at 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games as the world record holder and gold medal favorite in his specialty ? the 100m breastroke. But a severe groin injury suffered in a preliminary heat would once again crush his dreams of Olympic glory. 

It?s a story well told in Bud Greenspan?s Olympic documentary 16 Days of Glory ? a legendary filmmaker who would later become John?s mentor in his subsequent career as a storyteller. It?s a career that began humbly in the pioneering days of reality television and would ultimately lead to John taking home three 3 Emmys as an executive producer of The Amazing Race.

John?s latest creative pursuit is Sports, Life, Balance ?  a new podcast about the many timeless lessons learned through sport and their transformative application to all areas of life. Launching around Thanksgiving, be sure to check it out and subscribe ? this one?s worth it.

As a daydreaming adolescent swimmer, god-like photos of John ripped from the pages of Swimming World magazine adorned my bedroom wall. So it was utterly surreal when my path delivered me to Stanford. The opportunity for this bright-eyed, 17-year old freshman to call John my teammate was a dream come true.

And such began a friendship we have maintained for the last thirty-five years.

This is a conversation about what happens when desire meets deeds. It?s about determination and perseverance. The power of storytelling. The importance of reinvention. And the courage to blaze your own unique path.

It?s also a rundown of Olympic trials and tribulations ? and the conglomerate of raw and historic athleticism that was the hallmark of Stanford in the mid-1980s.

Packed with life lessons acquired by dint of John?s extraordinary athletic and professional career, it?s a master class on how to keep pushing when it matters most. When it?s okay to let go. And why aspiration is the master of destination.

To read more and listen click here. You can also watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify

One of my oldest and dearest friends, I love John and everything he is about. So it?s a long-overdue honor to share his story with you today. May you see in him what I always have.

Hakim Tafari Is The Journeyman Of Reinvention

Although Hakim Tafari defies categorization, a few things are clear. This guy has light. And his journey of personal transformation is nothing short of remarkable.

Hakim is a unique and gentle soul of many trades and traits. But fundamentally, he is a seeker. A journeyman of reinvention. An ambassador of running culture & mindfulness. A master of many a martial art from Kung Fu to Tai Chi. An herbalist, massage therapist, a vegan. And an ardent student and practitioner of several spiritual traditions from Buddhism to Daoism.

Hakim?s life didn?t come easy. Nor was it delivered overnight. Instead it?s the hard-wrought product of devotion to progressive growth. To being just a little bit better today than yesterday.

Today he shares his story.

Paved with solid life lessons, this conversation is one man?s hero?s journey.

It?s about transformation.

It?s about finding peace in failure. Creating a mindfulness-based lifestyle. The call to blaze a spiritual path. And the pangs of growth.

But more than anything, this is a dialog about finding freedom ? in mind, body, and soul.

I?ve had the pleasure of conversing with a diversity of extraordinary humans. But every blue moon I luck into a mind-meld that elevates an exchange into a higher gear. This is one such experience ? a connection marked with heart and truth. Vulnerability and authenticity.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. Enjoy!

Matthew McConaughey Wants You To Find Your Frequency

One of the world's most compelling public figures, today Matthew McConaughey graces the show to share his incredible life story -- a journey laced with timeless wisdom & lessons on authenticity, character, integrity and what it means to be true to one's self.

Do I really need to introduce this guy?

Dazed And Confused. Dallas Buyers Club. Wolf of Wall Street. Interstellar. True Detective. You've seen them. You love 'em. And you love him.

But over yonder -- far afield of the epic screen characters -- resides a mystic cowboy poet. A family man and father prone to ponderings profound. A seeker ever questing for adventure off the beaten path. A Texan on a four-dimensional vision quest, pursuing life in accordance with a homespun code. His is an experience-earned philosophy. Truths both personal and universal that he shares in his utterly unique way. 

A way that can only be described as 100% McConaughey.

Beyond the make believe, tactile Matthew is an active philanthropist through his Just Keep Livin? Foundation. He's a professor at the University of Texas in his hometown of Austin, where he also serves up 'Minister of Culture' duties for the UT Athletic Department and the Austin FC Soccer Club, of which he is part owner.

Matthew is also quite the writer. Inspired by a lifetime of journaling, his recently released Greenlights is a delightfully earnest self-mythologizing romp. It's also a surprisingly astute and philosophically profound love letter to life -- a beat generation inspired pastiche of journal entries. Hollywood nights. Teenage daydreams. Off-grid plots. Amazonian scraps. Monk-like retreats. And, of course, lessons learned -- all sprinkled with just the right amount of self-help fairy dust.

I couldn?t put it down. And that doesn?t happen often.

Don't let the hang-dog laconicism fool you. Matthew is a man with a world-class work ethic. Razor sharp focus. Bull-like tenacity. And full commitment to everything he does.

A master of perseverance and resilience, Matthew is also one of the most spiritually attuned beings I have ever met.

This conversation is an exploration of many things. It's about discernment. Making critical choices. Crafting your future with intention. And the importance of character.

It?s about widening our aperture on life. How to effectively and consistently grow, learn and transform. And it's about how to hone intuition to connect (to coin Matthew?s phrase) ?the autobahn between your mind and heart.?

But overall, this conversation is about my favorite subject -- the hard-wrought journey to authenticity and self-actualization.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

I know Matthew is making the legacy media and podcast rounds. But I think (and hope) we took this to a few places others haven't. Either way, this one is super fun -- and chock-a-bloc with timeless life wisdom. It was an honor. I sincerely hope you dig it.

Chris Burkard?s Crusade Against The Mundane

A treat for any and all with a bent for adventure and creative expression, today's guest is one of my very favorite visionaries of images still and moving.

Meet Chris Burkard.

A true artist in many forms, Chris is a photographer, filmmaker, world explorer, accomplished endurance athlete (last year he set the record for fastest man to circumnavigate Iceland by bike), dirtbag surfer extraordinaire, author, creative director, father, and man of faith. 

But first and foremost, Chris is a storyteller --best known for his photojournalistic, humanizing approach to the farthest expanses of the Earth and capturing stories that inspire humans to consider our relationship with nature, while promoting the preservation of wild places everywhere.

Chances are you follow Chris on Instagram ? stacked with breathtaking landscapes and tales of adventure, his feed is a unique portal into other worlds that magnetizes 3.6 million people daily.

Well established as a leading creative and man of global influence by the ripe age of 32 (now 34), Chris? visionary perspective has earned him opportunities to work on global, prominent campaigns with Fortune 500 clients and brands like Apple, The North Face, Patagonia, Microsoft, Burton, Capitol Records, Quiksilver, and REI to name but a few.

He?s spoken on the main TED stage, designed product lines, and published a growing collection of gorgeous books including, California Surf Project, At Glacier?s End, Boy Who Spoke To The Earth (children?s book), Distance Shores, and and High Tide: A Surf Odyssey. 

Chris' lates offering is Unnar -- a short documentary that tells the story of Chirs? friend Ellii, an Icelandic photographer, surfer, and kayaker whose perspective changed after surviving a near death experience. Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, Unnar is now freely viewable on Chris? YouTube page. Don't miss it.

Today Chris shares his story.

I?ve been a huge fan and admirer of Chris for ages. This conversation was long in the making ? and does not disappoint. 

It?s a conversation about being present in the moment. Making art out of suffering. Taking big risks. And what's behind his love affair with Iceland.

It?s also a glimpse into the creative mind of a true artist, laced with potent life lessons that will leave you thinking more broadly about your own path.

But most importantly, it is about crusading against the mundane ? and living a wanderlust lifestyle.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Chris is a very special human. We need more like him. I greatly appreciate his openness and perspective. And my hope is that this exchange will strengthen your reverence for the outdoors -- and inspire your own impulse for adventure.

Michael Muller On Swimming With Great Whites & Moving Towards Fear

Michael Muller is Hollywood's most in-demand photographer.

But that title doesn't even begin to capture the breadth of his extraordinary, Hemingway-esque life.

It's a path defined by his commitment to curiosity. An unquenchable thirst for adventure. Unbridled creativity.

And an impulse to always, always move towards fear.

Traveling to 60 countries before he even entered high school (a count that is currently at 200), Michael spent the greater part of his childhood living in Saudi Arabia. It was there that his passion for photography blossomed. The more he saw, the more he felt drawn to capturing his experiences in imagery.

By his mid-teens that passion had already become a career, documenting the snowboarding & punk rock scenes across California. But he soon found himself behind the velvet rope in Los Angeles, documenting the next generation of silver screen superstars. But the ripe age of 22, Michael established himself as a leading Hollywood entertainment and fashion photographer. 

Today Michael is the top dog in his game ? a guy who has photographed everyone who is anyone for every prominent media outlet from Vanity Fair to Esquire: Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Jeff Bridges, Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Hugh Jackman, Bruce Willis, Scarlett Johansson, Nirvana, Leonardo DiCaprio. You get the picture.

The question isn?t who has he photographed, it?s who hasn?t he. 

That iconic photograph of Kobe Bryant bowing that graced the cover of TIME magazine in February? That?s Michael.

That blockbuster movie poster or billboard you love? Chances are that?s Michael too -- the man behind countless studio campaigns from Marvel movies to Inherent Vice.

But Michael?s truest passion ? and a primary focus of today?s exchange ? is sharks. Specifically, great whites. Documenting them on film. Understanding them. Educating others about them. And most importantly, preserving them.

This conversation is about so many things.

It?s of course a recap of Michael?s unbelievable life, which is more adventure novel than a resume.

It?s about the nature of creativity. It?s about what drives him ? his philosophies on work, passion, service ? and the incredible power of the image to shape culture.

It's about his relationship with fear. PTSD. And how swimming with sharks changed his relationship with himself and the natural environment we all share.

It?s also keenly focused on preserving our oceans, specifically protecting our sharks, 100 million of which are killed every year. These apex predators are beyond vital to our ocean?s ecosystem, and without them, you?ll soon learn, our oceans will crumble.

But more than anything, this conversation is about what the great whites represent: fear.

It's about why the only way to overcome this debilitating emotion is to move towards it. To face it head-on.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Charismatic and larger than life, Michael is unlike any previous guest I've hosted on this podcast. This conversation is one for the ages.

Peace + Plants,

Julie Piatt On Sacred Commerce & SriMu

Today the wise & ethereal Julie Piatt -- my wife and partner for the last 20+ years -- returns for her umpteenth appearance on the podcast.

But this time we try something different.

As longtime listeners know well, Julie is a being of many talents. Although widely lauded for her series of bestselling plant-based cookbooks, the one who goes by SriMati is also an artist, musician, yogi, healer, mother of four and serial entrepreneur.

In addition, Julie hosts the For The Life of Me podcast. She reigns over Water Tiger, her online spiritual community. And she?s the ?Mother Arc? (her term for founder & CEO) of SriMu, her plant-based cheese brainchild start-up.

Over the years, Julie been a recurring source of spiritual wisdom on the podcast, dropping many a pearl on everything from parenting and creativity to navigating conflict, managing relationships, dealing with financial hardship, and countless other subjects.

Today's episode, however, is something new -- an exploration of Julie as entrepreneur.

Channeling my inner Guy Raz, I give Julie the ?How I Built This? treatment ? tracing her background growing up in Alaska through her career in fashion. Building a garment line. The pain of shuttering it. The pivot into home construction and interior design. And how all of these experiences inform the business and culture of SriMu, her most successful start-up to date.

You can call me biased. I am. But that doesn?t change the fact that she is poised for world domination with what truly is the best, next evolution of cheese.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Aside from the business bent, this conversation is centered on the power of meeting others ? and yourself ? in love.

As humans, we self-identify with the stories we tell ourselves. We cling to illusions of safety and security. But this moment is challenging the firmness of the ground upon which we stand. Julie reminds us of the impermanence of everything.

Embracing this vital truth will bring you greater peace. It will broaden your empathy for others. And help you identify the answers you seek.

Hint: they have been inside you all along.

Peace + Plants,

Dr. Michael Gervais Is The Sensei of Human Performance

How do world-class athletes, artists and top business leaders organize their inner lives to expand the edges of their potential?

What are the frameworks and key mental skills needed to excel in those intense, all or nothing make-it-or break it moments?

How do change-makers find peace, grounding, and even joy in the most intensely stressful, critical moments of their lives and careers?

There is no human more well-suited to fielding these questions than world-renown high performance psychologist Dr. Michael Gervais -- returning for his 4th appearance on the podcast.

A globally recognized authority on optimal human performance, Dr. Gervais has spent the last twenty years working in the trenches of consequential, high-stakes environments, where there is no luxury for mistakes, hesitation, or failure to respond. His clientele includes the NFL?s Seattle Seahawks, countless Olympic medalists, MVPs from every major sport, world record holders, internationally acclaimed music artists, and corporate leaders.

In addition, Dr. Gervais is the host of the popular Finding Mastery podcast. Alongside NFL coach Pete Carroll he founded Compete To Create, an online and live master class for the mind, and together they authored the recently released Audible Original also entitled Compete To Create -- a must-listen for anyone interested in raising the bar on their own potential.

There's a reason he's been featured by NBC, ABC, FOX, CNN, ESPN, NFL Network, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Outside Magazine, WIRED, ESPN Magazine, the Harvard Business Review and more: 

Dr. Gervais is the sensei of human performance optimization.

Unlike our previous episodes, today?s exchange is not about elite athletic performance. Nor is it about the demands of jumping out of a plane without a parachute. In fact, it's not really about sport at all.

Instead, this is a conversation about how best to navigate the cataclysmic shit show we call 2020 -- and the years of political, pandemic and planetary turmoil likely to follow.

It's about understanding trauma. Accepting pain. Working through it. And how suffering is integral to the human experience.

It?s about the difference between purpose and vision. The role of sport in a world that's closed for business. And the importance of optimism in dark times.

If you're new to the show, you're in for a treat. I adore this man. So prepare to fall in love.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

If you enjoy today's conversation, you might also dig Michael interviewing me in the most recent Finding Mastery episode (FM #244). And you can mine his three previous appearances on the RRP (episodes 120252, and 366).

It?s hard being a human in 2020. Don?t underestimate the circumstances -- but know there is a light out there.

Let's find it together.

Tom Scott on Why Meaningful Conversation Matters

At the root of our current political and cultural turmoil lies an unprecedented divisiveness. With all-or-nothing thinking fueled by tribalism, the result is a complete communication breakdown. And a predilection to convince rather than a willingness to listen and ultimately understand.

Unhealthy and isolating, it's leaving us lonelier and angrier than ever.

But more than anything, it's fracturing our humanity.

So what do we do?

Tom Scott says we need to talk about it.

A graduate of Brown University with a Masters of Divinity from Yale, Tom is the founder of The Nantucket Project ? an intimate ideas festival in the vein of TED ? that brings together incredible leaders across a wide range of disciplines to talk story, with an eye on creating a better world.

When the pandemic shuttered what would have been the 10th iteration of TNP, Tom decided to take his skills and curiosity on the road. Driven by a desire to engage with Americans first-hand, he enlisted his film crew on a slow route down the Mississippi River from Minneapolis to New Orleans, stopping in small towns daily to host get togethers with a wide variety of everyday people, chronicling difficult and at times painful discussions on politics, racism, and everything in between.

What he discovered might surprise you.

Returning for his second appearance on the podcast (catch RRP #360 if you missed it), today?s exchange with Tom begins with an honest acknowledgment of where culture currently sits. We discuss our fears and hopes for the future. And our shared concerns about the effects of quarantine on our kids and youth across the world.

We shift gears to discuss The Neighborhood Project, an intentional conversation platform Tom and his team are creating for people to digitally gather, intentionally connect and share experience.

Weaving clips into the edit lifted from his adventure down the Mississippi, Tom relates his effort to cultivate tactile, analog understanding between people who disagree. The wins. The losses. The glimmers of hope. And the challenges that remain.

All told, Tom paints the picture of an imperfect America. But one that looks quite different from the highlight reel delivered by our respective social media feeds.

Boots on the ground isn't twitter. And meaningful conversation matters. Therein lies promise.

As someone I have known since 7th grade, my friendship with Tom runs deep. This conversation further cemented my admiration for this human.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

My aspiration is that you take this one on with a full heart and an open mind -- then find a way to better connect with your neighbor.

We Are Water: Erin Brockovich On Pollutants, Politics & People Power

Over 40,000 chemicals currently find their way into a litany of consumer products. Although many are toxic, less than 1% have been tested for human safety. Nonetheless, great quantities can still be found in our drinking water.

How is this possible? Shouldn?t clean water be a fundamental right?

These questions are both fair and important. Unfortunately, trusted regulatory bodies like the EPA often fail to adequately protect us. Science is often manipulated by companies that put profit over public health. And thus, industry pollution continues unsupervised -- and the consumer protection laws we do have in place remain unenforced.

To better understand this reality -- how we got here and where to go from here -- I sat down with one of the most famous names in environmental activism.

Meet the the singular and eminent Erin Brockovich.

Best known as the legal file clerk who battled PG&E over polluted water in the town of Hinckley, CA, Ms. Brockovich was instrumental in architecting a case that resulted in the largest settlement ever paid in a direct-action lawsuit in U.S. history.

It?s a story that ended up on the big screen. Garnered Julia Roberts an Oscar for her portrayal of Erin under the direction of the great Steven Soderberg. And turned the name Erin Brockovich into not only a household name, but a verb.

Unfortunately, America?s waters didn?t cease to be polluted after the closing credits of the film. In fact, they?ve only gotten worse -- a fact that should leave us all deeply concerned. And highly motivated to act.

Because Superman's not coming.

Today Erin delivers a master class on water, with one resounding takeaway: the problem is our's to solve.

Simply put, we cannot rely on corporations or the government to protect us. An admittedly disheartening realization, it's also empowering -- a call to citizen activism to forge the better world we deserve.

It's a theme Ms. Brockovich explores in her new book, Superman's Not Coming (and recently launched podcast of the same name), which both take a brutally honest look at how mismanagement, chemical spills, mishandling of toxic waste and sludge, and even fake studies have created the perfect storm in terms of damaging water systems in the United States. The result is making us sick. And destroying the environment along the way.

This is a conversation about the outdated policies that perpetuate this pollution cycle, and the evil-overlord-level of deception that is happening in the corporations and government bodies we blindly trust.

We discuss the regulatory landscape of clean water. How what most consider a human right has become politicized and weaponized. How to better educate yourself about your own water supply. And the actions to undertake in the event of an issue.

In addition, we explore Erin?s upbringing. Her struggles with dyslexia. The experiences and mentors that fuel her perseverance. The case that brought her fame. And the vital work she has done since.

Brimming with unexpected optimism, I think you will find Erin?s message a welcome break from the relentless apocalyptic doom presented by the 24-hour news cycle.

A mighty, whip-smart and imposing force of nature, for many years I've deeply admired and respected Ms. Brockovich from afar. This conversation was an honor. And a powerful reminder of the indelible influence of the individual to create positive change and awaken a movement.

Our Social Dilemma ? Thoughts on Technology, Addiction, and the Illusion of Free Will

Welcome to another edition of Roll On?my bi-monthly deep dive into (semi) current events, topics of audience interest, and of course answers to your questions.

Commanding co-host duties is my hype man Adam Skolnick, an activist and veteran journalist perhaps best known as David Goggins' Can't Hurt Me co-author. Adam has written about adventure sports, environmental issues and civil rights for outlets such as The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men?s Health. He is also the author of One Breath, which chronicles the life and death of America's greatest freediver. He's also currently hard at work on a novel and just welcomed his newborn son into the world.

Some of the many topics explored in today's conversation include:

The new Netflix documentary, 'The Social Dilemma,' and the dangerous human impact of social mediaThe mental health effects of the pandemic on teensRich's exploration of barefoot runningEthan Hawke's new TED Talk, Give Yourself Permission To Be Creative30 Day Single-Use Plastic Challenge UpdateThe ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World ChampionshipTony Riddle's #3barepeaks challengeMaya Gabeira's big wave surfing world record 

In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

Thank you to Mark from Germany, Josh from outside D.C., and Victoria from Ottawa for your questions. If you want your query discussed, drop it on our Facebook Page, or better yet leave a voicemail at (424) 235-4626.

Health is About the Little Things: Rangan Chatterjee, M.D. on How to Feel Better in Five Minutes

As 2020 continues to unfurl in a fashion beyond surreal, more and more are descending into the anguished abyss of distress. Awakening to acrid tangerine skies that have transformed sunny California into a Blade Runner dystopia, I myself vacillate between melancholia and a commitment to forge a better world.

When the darkness descends, I find sanity in focusing only on those things I can control: my actions and reactions. Nonetheless, waves of anxiety -- and sometimes even despair -- continue to break on the shores of my consciousness. It is in these moments that I resort to a battery of simple but generally quite effective contrary actions. I spend time in nature. Double down on meditation and human connection. I eat better and move more. And I extend myself in service to others.

To further explore the many practical and unexacting things we can all undertake during this stressful time to course-correct our emotional disposition, reframe our reality and sustainably serve our well-being, I'm joined by my friend Rangan Chatterjee, M.D. -- who today returns for a third spin on the RRP flywheel.

One of the most influential doctors in the U.K., Rangan is a pioneer in the field of progressive, functional medicine. He is double board-certified in internal medicine and family medicine, holds an honors degree in immunology, and has appeared on seemingly every prominent media outlet from the BBC to The New York Times. 

In addition, Rangan prevails over the wildly popular Feel Better, Live More podcast. His TEDx talk, How To Make Diseases Disappear, has been viewed almost 3 million times. And he is the author of three #1 Sunday Times bestselling books. The focus of today's conversation is his latest well-being tome, Feel Better In 5.

A close cousin to my podcast with Atomic Habits author James Clear (RRP #401), today's exchange is all about habit change and habit formation. It's about the power of bite-sized actions. And how, when undertaken regularly, short and simple practices can rapidly and completely change your health and life.

We discuss the difference between breaking bad habits versus crowding them out with new, better habits.

We explore the realities of food addiction. Our epidemic of emotional eating. And Rangan's personal theory on cause and solution.

We talk generally about holistic health and lifestyle medicine, and why progressive wellness should be accessible to all -- now more than ever.

Interspersed throughout, Rangan shares how he has helped patients relieve stress, find fulfillment, and engender peace in these chaotic times.

But most importantly, we explore his very simple, almost effortless, methods for building a new and sustainable lifestyle to serve our long-term health.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube (courtesy of Zoom). And as always, the conversation streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

I always enjoy time spent with Rangan, even when it's remote. My hope is that you do as well -- and put his advice into action.

Think Like A Monk: Jay Shetty On Purpose, Compassion & Happiness

Last week we went deep with an actual monk. Today we extend this exploration with a former monk -- a renounced renunciant who returned to relate the wisdom gleaned for the betterment of all.

Meet Jay Shetty.

If that name rings a bell, it's likely due to his social media omnipresence. With a global following in excess of 20 million people, Jay has a knack for creating what he calls viral wisdom -- snackable videos based on ancient tenets that have surpassed 7 billion views -- making him one of the most viewed people on the internet.

A graduate of Cass Business school with an honors degree in Behavioral Science, Jay has been named one of Forbes magazine?s 30-under-30. He's been invited to keynote at companies like Google, Microsoft, and Facebook. He is the host of the popular On Purpose podcast. And the occasion for today?s conversation is Jay?s new book, Think Like A Monk --- a distillation of the timeless wisdom learned during his ascetic days on an ashram into practical tools we can all use to live a less anxious, more meaningful life.

Today the man Russell Brand (RRP 448) calls 'a cat-eyed mystic' shares his story.

This is a conversation about Jay's most unusual journey. His decision to shirk the predictable post-college path and instead move to India. The three-year exploration of austerity that indelibly changed his worldview. His decision to return home, fueled by a desire to make an impact. And the most remarkable path that followed.

We discuss the insights he gleaned along the way -- and the many tools freely available to underscore our lives with greater meaning and purpose.

Among many other subjects, we explore the plausibility of conscious capitalism. The double-edged sword of social media. And how to use commerce and attention for good. To spread love. Encourage laughter. And arouse souls from the waking dream that defines the lives of far too many.

Note: This was taped pre-pandemic over 6 months ago, when the world was a very different place. Coronavirus delayed the original release of Jay?s book from Spring to Fall, so I agreed to hold on publishing this episode until now.

You can watch it all go down (in my original home studio) on YouTube. And as always, the audio version streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

This conversation is more than just whimsical ramblings. Jay?s methods for mindfulness and self-actualization are evidence-based and platitude-free. Just perceptions and practical takeaways you can adopt right now that will positively reconfigure your reality.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the exchange.

Peace + Plants,

Radhanath Swami On The Search For Light

As a reminder that we are spiritual beings inhabiting a material world -- wandering this rotating orb as it hurls across the multiverse ? it's time to once again transcend the mortal coil to connect with all things ethereal.

Our guide for today's celestial adventure is the candescent Radhanath Swami.

A New York Times best-selling author, monk, philanthropist, activist and teacher, his Holiness Radhanath Swami is a man that radiates love, compassion and grace with a sweet and joyous disposition that has immeasurably impacted millions of souls across the world.

Born Richard Slavin to middle-class parents in Chicago, he came of age amidst the strife and upheaval of the 1960s. A social activist, he slowly became disillusioned with the structural mandates of the western civilized way of life. So, still in his late teens, he left Chicago behind in search of greater meaning. After hitchhiking across the world, he felt called to India. There he met his spiritual teacher, catalyzing his transformation into the mystic he is today.

Along the way, Radhanath Swami has founded multiple spiritual communities throughout the world, the most prominent of which is the Radha-Gopinath Ashram located in Mumbai, India. Under his inspiration and guidance, the project has grown to include hospitals, orphanages, a UN-awarded eco-friendly farm, schools, temples, emergency relief programs, and a food distribution program that feeds more than 300,000 children in India every single day. 

In addition, he teaches Eastern philosophy and spiritually throughout Europe, Asia, and America. His wisdom has reached over 100,000,000 views on social media in the last year. He has been featured as a guest speaker at Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton, Harvard, Columbia and Stanford, and at corporations such as HSBC, Microsoft, Facebook, Google, Intel and Oracle. Along the way he has met with many a world leader, including Barak Obama and former Prime ministers Tony Blair, David Cameron and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Today he shares his story.

This conversation is fueled by my concern for cultural cohesion -- a desire to help mend the vitriolic division and existential tension that is tearing us apart.

Therefore, beyond exploring Radhanath Swami's story of origin, we spend the gravamen of our exchange examining what he calls 'the light'. It's about how to embody the space within ourselves that brims with compassion and empathy -- and why a committed spiritual practice is more important now than ever.

I understand that some may recoil when it comes to topics spiritual. But this is not about religion. And it's not about dogma. Simply put, it's about why love is the answer.

So look past the robe. Set aside preconceived opinions. Open your heart a crack. And be present to receive what this evolved human has to share. If you do, I think this powerful conversation will leave you feeling nourished, more hopeful and immensely more positive about our global predicament. 

Today's mind meld is viewable (via Zoom) on YouTube. And as always, the audio version streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Final Note: I intended to publish a Roll On episode today. However, good fortune prevented my bi-weekly confab with Adam Skolnick due to the birth of his son, Zuma James Kalu Skolnick (perhaps the most epic baby name of all time) who arrived in the 3rd dimension this past Saturday at 6:11pm PST. Massive congrats to Adam and momma bear April Wong. Baby and parents are doing well. Adam and I will be back together soon. In the meantime send them some love.

And with that nugget of good news, I hope you enjoy today's episode in the spirit in which it is offered -- with radiant love.

Darin Olien is Down to Earth

Hot on the heels of Down To Earth -- the #1 hit Netflix series in which he co-stars alongside Zac Efron -- today my superfood hunting, brother-from-another-mother Darin Olien returns for his 4th appearance on the podcast to blow minds and drop wisdom on all things nutrition, hydration, ecological preservation, longevity, and living a high-vibration life.

One of my most popular guests to date, Darin?s biography reads like a Hemingway adventure novel. Devoted to advancing human health, ecological preservation and sustainability, he's spent the better part of the last 20 years embedded in remote farming communities across the Himalayas, South Pacific, Latin America and Asia, scavenging for the most nutritionally potent plants, nuts, and seeds on the planet.

His most recent obsession is Barùkas (aka the baru nut) -- an incredibly nutrient-rich superfood known to the indigenous tribes of the Brazilian Cerrado for millennia, yet virtually unheard of anywhere else. This discovery led to Darin to an epiphany: he could help preserve the Cerrado (which is a tropical savanna ecoregion three times the size of Texas) by employing its indigenous communities to harvest the native baru and importing them to North America. A win-win to preserve precious environmental resources, support indigenous communities, and simultaneously introduce North America to the healthiest nut on the planet.

Everything Darin has learned over the decades is laid bare on the pages of Superlife, his New York Times bestselling primer on all things health and well-being. His 121Tribe.com app will put you on a 21-day lifestyle-changing diet and exercise program. And his recently launched podcast, The Darin Olien Show, is already killing the game.

Down To Earth introduced to a broad, mainstream audience what I've always known about this incredible human:

A man who truly walks his talk, Darin is the real deal.

Picking up where we left off two years ago in RRP 382, Darin and I discuss all things Down To Earth. The show's origins. What it was like collaborating with a global superstar. The show's overnight impact on Darin's life. And the show's impact on countless people across the world.

We discuss his commitment to forging a more sustainable food system. The impact of Barùkas on the indigenous farming communities of the Brazilian Cerrado. And his plans for leveraging new found fame to cultivate community around well-being and drive global ecological preservation.

Finally, we explore Darin's daily habits. The overlooked importance of hydration. And Darin's personal water routine (it's intense).

May this conversation leave you understanding why Darin is the first person I turn to for advice not just on nutrition and fitness -- but on all manner of subjects related to living my best authentic life.

The Crazy Benefits of Water-Only Fasting With Dr. Alan Goldhamer

When you hear the word ?addiction?, our attention typically turns to mind-altering substances -- illicit drugs, alcohol, and prescription medications.

Typically overlooked in this conversation? Food.

But food addiction isn't just real, it just might be our biggest problem. In fact, the hyper-industrialized western world is firmly entrenched in an epidemic of dysfunctional eating, fueled by an outsized appetite for an ever-increasing array of highly processed foods that are scientifically designed -- with just the right amount of sugar, salt and fat -- to hijack our nervous system. Enslave us to compulsive habits that lead to illness. And ultimately render us wards of the pharmaceutical industry.

Meanwhile we?ve normalized this twisted and deleterious relationship. So much so that right now, more than two-thirds of adults in the industrialized world are overweight or obese. 

Nonetheless, millions of people find it extremely difficult if not downright impossible to change their dietary habits -- and simply break the fatal, addictive grip.

So how does one effectively transition to a healthy diet sustained over time? 

According to Dr. Alan Goldhamer, a great place to start is by fasting. 

I'm not talking about a couple days of drinking juice. I'm talking about nothing but water for upwards of 40 days.

Even with strict medical supervision it sounds like scary quackery. But over the last few decades, Dr. Goldhamer has successfully supervised over 20,000 patient fasts. Along the way, he has seen lives transformed wholesale. Unhealthy eating habit addictions broken. Medications ditched. And countless illnesses overcome.

An iconoclastic pioneer in his field, Dr. Goldhamer is the founder of True North Health Center, one of the first (and largest) facilities in the world that specializes in medically supervised water-only fasting, along with medical and chiropractic services, psychotherapy and counseling, and more.

His work and studies have appeared in countless medical journals. He was featured in the hit documentary What The Health. And his book The Pleasure Trap (co-authored by Dr. Doug Lisle), has helped countless thousands transcend their prison of compulsivity when it comes to food choice.

Today he joins the podcast to walk us through all things fasting, food addiction, and the power of a whole plant diet to prevent and reverse the many chronic lifestyle ailments that unnecessarily impair millions of people across the world.

We explore all things water fasting, from it's origins dating back thousands of years across many cultures and religious traditions to the protocol Dr. Goldhamer administers today.

We discuss how fasting can create the foundation to transition to a sustainable, healthy whole food plant diet.

And we explore why he advocates an 'SOS' (very low salt oil and sugar) version of that diet.

But more than anything, this is a powerful discourse on our uncomfortable relationship with food. How most of us don?t realize we are killing ourselves with our fork and knife. How our food, and our food culture, is making us fat, sick, and frankly miserable. And how almost all of us, despite weight and health, use food as an emotional crutch. 

I'm well aware that Dr. Goldhamer is controversial in certain circles. His approach represents a radical departure from our traditional western medical paradigm. But he also makes a lot of sense. And his results speak for themselves (I have several personal friends who have undergone his protocol).

Final Note: Under no circumstances should anyone undertake a water fast of any length without the medical supervision of a trained professional. In other words, please do not try this at home.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

My hope is that Dr. Goldhamer will inspire you to think more deeply about the body's profound ability to heal itself when treated properly. That food freedom is possible. And that none of us need fall prey to chronic food-borne illness.

Prophets Walk Among Us ? Thoughts On Beirut, Eradicating Single Use Plastic, Listener Q?s + More

?You?d be amazed by what you can learn from the people in your immediate environment if you just slow down and pay attention.?Rich Roll

Welcome to another edition of Roll On?my bi-monthly deep dive into (semi) current events, topics of audience interest, and of course answers to your questions.

Once again serving up co-host duties is hype man Adam Skolnick, an activist and veteran journalist perhaps best known as David Goggins' Can't Hurt Me co-author. Adam has written about adventure sports, environmental issues and civil rights for outlets such as The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men?s Health. He is also the author of One Breath, which chronicles the life and death of America's greatest freediver, and is currently hard at work on a novel.

Some of the many topics explored in today's conversation include:

Heart rate zones, aerobic training, functional strength & dynamic workoutsThe Beirut explosion, Rich's experiences in Beirut & how you can help The politicization of USPS & compromised integrity of our forthcoming electionFinding mentors in our every day livesBureo Hat & Net Positiva -- products from recycled fishing netsThe 30 Day No Single Use Plastic ChallengeWhat is going on with QAnonLeBron James & Patrick Mahomes tackle voter suppression

In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

How is creative expression related to well-being?How does one move forward post-breakup?If there is a through-line of sobriety, diet, and endurance, what is the universal truth that threads them together?And my thoughts on Joe Rogan moving from LA to Texas, and the mass exodus of digital workers in this age of work from home. 

Thank you to Camille from Illinois, Gabriel from Puerto Rico, Josh from North Carolina, and John for your questions. If you want your query discussed, drop it on our Facebook Page, or better yet leave a voicemail at (424) 235-4626.  

This is one of my increasingly rare audio-only podcasts ? you can find it streaming wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Enjoy!

Apolo Ohno on The Weight of Gold

?Every thought that enters our mind has a direct impact on how we feel, what we say, and ultimately the decisions we make.?Apolo Ohno

Over the years, I?ve had the pleasure of conversing with many an Olympian, each with a uniquely impressive journey from obscurity to heights most can?t fathom.

But what happens after the medal ceremony wraps, the klieg lights shutter, and the career comes to a close? When your entire life is centered on a moment now passed, how do you then shift overnight from podium to pedestrian? 

One would presume the many skills learned as an athlete -- mindset, focus, discipline, and teamwork -- would translate to seemless success in the civilian world. Ironically, that presumption would be misplaced. In truth, this transition is fraught, and has felled some the greatest competitors among us.

We love to celebrate our Olympic heroes. We relish in the dissection of their habits, wrapt in what makes them tick; what makes them great; and what distinguishes the very best from everyone else -- all in service to that sliver of inspiration and applicability to our own lives.

But this particular story, the story of civilian assimilation, is less told. It's far less understood. And it's woefully under-appreciated. But it?s also a story perhaps more instructive -- and equally compelling -- as the deconstruction of greatness.

From private mental health struggles to debt, loss of identity and a lack of opportunities in retirement, the systems sending our athletes to the Olympics aren?t supporting them well in the long haul. And it?s gotta change.

That change begins now, starting with the recently released HBO documentary, The Weight of Gold.

Expanding upon a recurring theme of this podcast, the film presents a potent look at the mental health challenges our Olympians often face from their lived perspective. Executive produced and narrated by Michael Phelps, the world?s most athletically accomplished mental health advocate, it features a myriad of celebrated athletes, including today's guest.

Meet Apolo Ohno, here to help untangle this dark thread that connects those who have stood in the spotlight.

An eight-time Olympic medalist in short track speed skating, Apolo is the most decorated American Olympian at the Winter Olympics, and was inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame in 2019. He is a Twelve-time U.S. champion, a three-time overall World Cup champion and in 2008 he was Overall World Championship gold medalist.

Not to mention, Today, Apolo is a New York Times bestselling author, serial entrepreneur, and acclaimed commentator for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi and the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang. Oh yeah, he also won Dancing With The Stars in 2007 and rocked the Ironman World Championships in 2014.

Despite his post-athlete career successes, Apolo knows well the mental perils of elite athleticism. Raised by a single dad, Apolo took his dream all the way to the very top. When it was over he didn't just face what might come next. For the first time he had to discover who he was off the rink--and reimagine his life wholesale.

This is a conversation about what it?s like to have a passion with a shelf life. The mental health repercussions of Olympic pursuit. And the pitfalls of prodigious success at a young age.

More broadly, it's a dialog about why we sabotage ourselves, and how to break this bad habit.

And it?s about deconstructing those preconditioned beliefs we all have about who we are and what we are capable of achieving.

Today, one of history's all-time great Olympians provides a master class in mindset and intention: how to use it to our advantage, and what it takes to break the mold of what is possible. 

My hope is that this conversation will help you form a more holistic idea of who you are and what you seek to offer the world. I hope it encourages you to see the strength in vulnerability and the power in asking for help. 

But more than anything, I hope it breaks whatever illusion you have about what an Olympic athlete is and what an Olympic athlete is not.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

May you receive Apolo with an open heart.

The Gut Health MD: Dr. Will Bulsiewicz On Optimizing Your Microbiome (In A Pandemic)

?Your brain's best friend is your gut. You can't separate the two. If you have an unhealthy gut, it's going to affect your brain.?Will Bulsiewicz, MD

We are living in a moment of compounding collective stress---personal, pandemic, economic, civic, and political. This trauma and tumult comes with side effects both physical and psychological. 

How do we take care of our bodies during this incredibly stressful moment? Furthermore, how do we buttress our immune system to combat the virus?

The answer, we are increasingly coming to understand, begins with the microbiome. In fact, you might be surprised to learn, the gut is home to 70% of our immune system.

To glean a better understanding of what that means, I convened with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, a lauded gastroenterologist & gut health guru whose life?s work is devoted to better comprehending the microbiome and the crucial role it plays in all facets of health, from brain function and hormone balance to weight management and everything in between.

Affectionately known as 'Dr. B', Will is a graduate of Georgetown School of Medicine and a former chief medical resident at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and chief gastroenterology fellow at the University of North Carolina Hospitals. In addition, he received his Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) from Northwestern University and a certificate in nutrition from Cornell University. He's authored more than twenty articles in the top American gastroenterology journals and his New York Times bestselling book, Fiber Fueled: The Plant Based Gut Health Program For Losing Weight, Restoring Your Health, and Optimizing Your Microbiome, is a must-read primer on why gut health is so crucial--and everything you need to know to optimize it.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, I?ve lamented the mainstream media's lack of attention to caring for our immune system. So today we dive in.

This is a conversation about all things microbiome and gut health. The mechanisms behind it and latest research findings.

We discuss our epidemic of dysbiosis (lack of gut biome balance) and its relation to a litany of chronic diseases that unnecessarily plague too many. 

We explore the gut-brain connection. The paramount need to increase the biodiversity in our bodies and our environments. And (sorry carnivores) why fiber is king.

In addition, in this time of excessive sterilization and sequestration, Dr. B provides practical takeaways on how we can improve our gut flora and optimize our immune system, without putting ourselves and others at risk.

And finally, we talk fecal transplants. Because, let's face it, I can?t have a gastroenterologist on the show and not ask about that.

It was an honor to to converse with Dr. B--a fresh, new mind making big waves on the plant-based, microbiome scene. Passionate, empathetic and whip-smart, I enjoyed every minute. And I promise you will walk away from this episode armed to take your health to the next level.

Note: I first came across Dr. B's work by way of his many appearances on my friend Simon Hill's wonderful Plant Proof Podcast (which you should all check out). The pandemic prevented an in-person exchange, so this conversation was recorded remotely a few months ago. Apologies in advance for any audio issues. We did the best we could.

Final Note: Will just released The Plant-Fed Gut, a comprehensive 7-week online course about microbiome health and reversing dysbiosis that goes beyond what he was able to offer in his book. To learn more and sign up, visit theplantfedgut.com/course/ (I have no affiliate or financial entanglement here--just sharing good information).

Mirna Valerio: Shattering Stereotypes, Redefining Running & Confronting Racism in The Outdoors

?When you don?t acknowledge that racism actually exists--that my experience may be different from yours because I?m black and you are white--then you are absolutely perpetuating racism.?Mirna Valerio

When you hear the words ?professional runner? what image pops into your head?

Most likely it's some version of a skinny white male in tiny shorts.

Let?s just say Mirna Valerio is here to smash that stereotype ? and completely redefine what it means to be an accomplished endurance athlete.

She's not White. She's not a dude. And she isn't skinny.

She is a total badass of her own design.

Back for a long-awaited sequel to RRP #340, Mirna is back to drop truth bombs left and right on all things body inclusion, identity, and diversity in the outdoors.

For those new to Mirna, aka the force of nature affectionately known as The Mirnavator, she is one of the most inspirational athletes I have ever met ? a true ambassador of sport on a mission to empower humans of all shapes, sizes, colors and genders to proudly embrace their bodies, expand their horizons, and own their personal truth.

Today?s conversation picks up where we last left off, spanning her evolution into a full-time sponsored running professional to her work as as a diversity and inclusion educator.

We talk about identity, and the way in which we see ourselves as the lens through which we interpret the world.

We discuss the difference between body inclusion versus body positivity and acceptance.

We talk about everyday racism in the outdoor world and industry--and the work required to assess and overcome our own internalized unconscious beliefs.

And it's about defining your values and embodying them in your actions--day in and day out.

Mirna?s joyful self-acceptance is both real and rare. It?s authentic and bold. And it's as infectious as it is inclusive. She is totally unapologetic, far from sheepish, and 100% herself.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube. And as always, the audio version streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

I must confess: after almost 130 days in relative quarantine, melancholy has crept up on me. But there is something about Mirna?s gleeful demeanor that cheered me up.

I think she will cheer you up as well. Enjoy!

Peace + Plants,
