    25. Advertising Boss Thas Naseemuddeen | More Than Muppets

    25. Advertising Boss Thas Naseemuddeen | More Than Muppets

    Thas is the CEO of Omelet, an LA-based advertising agency, after working her way up the ranks as a brilliant strategist. We met years ago when I was her client and we both recognized quickly that we were each others’ people.

    Thas was forced to confront mortality when her dad was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer a few years back. And since losing a close friend to cancer last year, she’s developed a healthier relationship to death and dying than most, along with a deep-rooted appreciation for all the right things - including the Muppets.

    24. Accidental Philanthropist Erin Foster | Some Real Talk

    24. Accidental Philanthropist Erin Foster | Some Real Talk

    Erin Foster might have been born into a famous family (her dad is music mogul David Foster) but she didn’t have the charmed upbringing you might expect. Far from the shallow, superficial Hollywood celeb focused on all the wrong things, Erin’s got a hell of a work ethic and a desire to give back. Comedian, writer, actress, entrepreneur, and investor with a Midas touch, she and her sister Sara hitched their ponies to both Mirror and Bumble and started the Favorite Daughter clothing brand during the pandemic.

    I thought we’d talk about how she uses her platform and power for good but instead, we spent most of our conversation just getting right into death anxiety, mortality, what happens after we die, and why Judaism is pretty chill.

    23. Global DJ Megan Taylor | Our Spiritual Quests

    23. Global DJ Megan Taylor | Our Spiritual Quests

    Megan Taylor is a kickass DJ who gets that music is the soundtrack to our lives. In fact, we met when she was hired to play the afterparty for my company’s event years ago. Her beats were solid, her sneaker game on point, and once we got to talking, I realized I was talking to someone who knew they were a spiritual being having a human experience.

    We got to talk about what we think is really going on here, finding our purpose, death and dying, the spiritual world, crystals, mediums - you name it. A welcomed perspective that reminded me that this is just one chapter for us, and that brings me comfort.

    22. Peloton Instructor Adrian Williams | Bring the (Emotional) Thunder

    Adrian is a Peloton tread instructor with a fanatical following called the Thunder Squad that I am personally proud to be a part of. Intensely fit with a beaming smile and a heart of gold, he has the ability to motivate and inspire those who take his classes.

    But it was Adrian’s strength in vulnerability that was on display during our conversation as we talked about an experience that changed the course of his life forever and explored how regret can serve as a transformative teacher.

    21. Calendly Founder Tope Awotona | Going All In

    Tope Awotona is the founder of tech unicorn Calendly which makes scheduling calls + meetings so delightfully simple. I’ll never waste any more of my precious time with the old-school back and forth!

    To get the company off the ground, Tope maxed out credit cards and high interest loans in lieu of taking outside funding, essentially pushing in all his chips on the bet.

    Hear us talk about how his mom’s cancer battle and her innate sense of urgency compelled Tope to take the risk and go all in on the business idea that just got a $3B valuation.

    20. Reality TV Star Ethan Zohn | The Survivor on Surviving

    Ethan Zohn won Survivor: Africa back in 2002 but he’s also survived cancer - twice.

    We talked about his life before Survivor (playing pro soccer in Africa), life after (living the dream at 27), and then the impacts - mental, physical, emotional - of getting diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma (pretty terrible), beating it, only to have it come back years later to fend it off again.

    Later in the episode, we both share exactly what WE do to tackle the fear and anxiety that comes with uncertainty - that I think could benefit anyone as we all navigate the challenges of the pandemic.
