Gems and rocks

Some of the episodes are real gems (intresting characters, interviews), the others are just rocks (health, yoga, suppliments etc). Luckily it’s really easy to pick the gems from the rocks, since there is hundreds of episodes to choose from.

I’ve listened to every episode since launch

this podcast played a huge part in getting me juiced and inspired to:

- starting a company
- going back to college to get a degree
- learn about new things, like: coding, neuroscience, everything health related, etc.

I can trace so much of recent personal growth to this pod, I’m sure you will too!
