    #55: Alec Torelli [Asymmetic Bets]

    Alec Torelli is a professional high-stakes poker player turned creator, who shares how the lessons he learned from poker can be applied to life and business.
    Alec is the founder of Conscious Poker, a popular poker training platform, and after spending the last 14 years making decisions for hundreds of thousands of dollars in a single hand, he now gives talks in which he dissects the anatomy of decision making to help others hone the way they make choices.
    Lately, Alec is one of the leading voices in the conversation about BitClout, a decentralized social media platform that looks and feels much like Twitter.
    In this episode, we talk about his history as a poker player, how that impacted his relationship to money, how he makes decisions, and why he believes BitClout is an asymmetric bet worth taking.

    Introducing Trail Weight

    Introducing Trail Weight

    Hey! I'm dropping in today to share with you a new show from the Podglomerate called Trail Weight.
    After 30 years of feeling stuck, Andrew Steven attempted to get in shape for a month-long backpacking trip through the Sierra Nevadas. Looking at his career for inspiration, Andrew finds an unlikely revelation by imagining his life’s narrative arc. But after a death in the family, he found himself in a story of repeating loss. Trail Weight chronicles Andrew’s journey as he narrates a year of his life. Through audio diaries, recordings from the trail, and conversations with authors, experts, Olympians, and special guests, Andrew takes listeners through an eye-opening adventure of self-discovery.
