    Julie Lythcott-Haims On How To Be An Adult

    Julie Lythcott-Haims On How To Be An Adult

    I love my parents. I grew up with a world-class education. And yet, nobody actually ever taught me how to be an adult.
    As a result, I made a ton of avoidable mistakes. I suffered far more than necessary. And I fumbled in the dark for years until eventually, I figured a few things out. Unfortunately, my experience is all too common.
    Today’s guest—a woman who spent years mentoring and advising some of the brightest young people in the entire world—would agree, so she decided to do something about it.
    Julie Lythcott-Haims is the former dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University, where she earned her B.A. (as my classmate) before obtaining a law degree from Harvard and a master’s in fine arts and writing from California College of the Arts.
    Today Julie is an author and authority on what we now call—in Millenial parlance—adulting. Her TED Talk 'How to raise successful kids without over-parenting' has over 5 million views, and her books include the New York Times bestseller, How To Raise An Adult and Real American—a memoir centered on coming to terms with her racial identity.
    Julie’s latest work and the focus of today’s conversation is Your Turn: How To Be An Adult. For those just emerging into the grown-up world, it’s a must-read life handbook. For parents, it’s a must-gift for your young ones entering their adult phase of life. All in all, it’s a guide I very much wish existed during my formative years.
    This conversation is packed with practical insights for both parents and young people alike. We cover the downfalls of being a helicopter parent, the importance of learning conversation skills, and why paying attention to what you like and don’t like is more important than finding a purpose.
    But more than anything, this conversation is about why diversity and inclusivity are vital in parenting, educating, and adulting.
    To read more click here. You can also watch listen to our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
    This is appointment listening for young people emerging into the world or parents striving to best guide their kids into maturity. But no matter your age, we can all use some wisdom about how to grow up a little bit more.

    Guru Singh On Intuition Over Impulse

    Guru Singh On Intuition Over Impulse

    Last week we dipped our toes into sacred waters both spiritual and metaphysical. This week we are diving off the deep end.
    In other words, welcome to another incarnation of Guru Multiverse, the latest in my ongoing series of communions with Guru Singh, my treasured friend and favorite sparring partner when it comes to matters heart and soul.
    Aside from being a modern-day Gandalf, Guru Singh is a master of the Kundalini arts, a celebrated spiritual teacher, a third-generation Sikh yogi, an author, accomplished musician, father, grandfather, and an overall gift to humanity who has been teaching and studying Kundalini yoga for the past 40-plus years who now holds virtual court at kundaliniuniversity.com.
    The Guru joins me in the studio to offer a dissertation on divining and discerning the delicate and detailed differences that differentiate: instinct, impulse, intuition, and intelligence—the four “I’s” if you will.
    This is a conversation about perspective, accountability, the willingness to solicit and receive feedback, and why growth depends upon the ability to truly understand and appreciate the nuances that distinguish these “I” words.
    To read more click here. You can also watch listen to our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
    Make sure to stick around until the end. As has become his custom, Guru Singh closes things out with a song.
    This might be one of my favorite Vulcan mind-melds to date. So let us not waste another moment.
    Peace + Plants,

    Rainn Wilson & Reza Aslan On Living In The Questions

    Rainn Wilson & Reza Aslan On Living In The Questions

    Today we’re going take some of life’s biggest questions, toss them into a Vitamix, press hyperblend, and whip up a Metaphysical Milkshake.
    My sous chefs for this cosmic concoction are Rainn Wilson & Reza Aslan.
    Do I really need to introduce these two?
    Star of screens big and small, Rainn is best known for his role as Dwight Schrute on The Office. An OG in the online high-vibe content space, Rainn is also the founder of SoulPancake, a digital platform for people from all walks of life to discuss and question what it means to be human—a place to wrestle with the spiritual, philosophical, and creative journey that is life.
    Reza is a scholar of religions, a professor of creative writing, a television host, an Emmy-nominated producer, and the author of many bestselling books on religion, faith & spirituality.
    These two have teamed up on a fantastic new podcast worthy of your attention called (you guessed it) Metaphysical Milkshake.
    In a mild departure from my typical interview format, the idea for this episode was to tackle some of those big life questions, themes that recur on both of our shows, and have some fun doing it. So I wrote down various queries on a stack of index cards, wadded them up, tossed them in a bowl, and let Rainn and Reza take turns fishing them out for today’s round-table.
    Among the threads pulled today are:
    What does it mean to be human?How do you be a good person?Why are humans prone to spirituality?How do you reconcile science & rationality with faith & spirituality?Are we addicted to everything?What is the role of consciousness?To read more click here. You can also watch listen to our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
    Prepare to have your noodle bent—and have some laughs along the way. Good times!

    Joanne Molinaro Is The Korean Vegan: Lessons On Life, Identity, & Food

    Joanne Molinaro Is The Korean Vegan: Lessons On Life, Identity, & Food

    A central theme of my podcast is the power of a plant-based diet to enhance the quality of life for both the individual and the whole.
    Over time, the show has grown to embrace a wider variety of themes—art, entertainment, cuisine, entrepreneurship, spirituality, sports, social justice, creativity, equality, and more—each guest sharing his/her respective expertise and experience.
    Some conversations traverse more than one field. Only a select few impart powerful, impactful lessons across several.
    Joanne Molinaro is one such human—a  cultural phenomenon who goes by the moniker, The Korean Vegan.
    Born in Chicago to immigrant parents from what is today North Korea, Joanne is a (soon to be) New York Times bestselling cookbook author, food blogger, marathon runner, social activist and corporate law firm partner (although she just resigned last week) with millions of fans across a variety of social media platforms—including over 2.5 million on TikTok—obsessed with her wisdom-laced and thought-provoking food content, garnering her features on CNN, CBS, The Food Network and many other mainstream media outlets.
    Joanne’s audience isn’t just massive, it’s insanely engaged—a loyalty rooted in her wholesale re-imagination of the cuisine landscape. Her content is so fresh, so beyond nice photographs or the A-B-C food preparation tutorials to which we’ve grown accustomed, that it’s fair to say Joanne has pioneered an entirely new content genre altogether.
    Exquisitely captured in irresistible sixty-second short films with a penchant for virality, across her social channels Joanne masterfully entwines food, culture, education and self-improvement with incredibly honest, vulnerable, heartfelt stories about life, relationships, grief, family, divorce, surviving abuse, and the immigrant experience. Her deeply personal yarns tug on the universal—an authentic relatability that leaves most teary-eyed upon each’s film’s conclusion.
    One of my most memorable encounters of 2021, our conversation spans her remarkable career balancing corporate law firm partner duties with the full-court demands of her growing voice of public influence. We cover her path to veganism (a journey that ironically began with her husband reading Finding Ultra), her experience as a Korean woman living in the diaspora, the many ways in which food and social justice advocacy intersect, and the importance of humanizing the immigrant story.
    To read more click here. You can also watch listen to our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
    This is a powerful, potentially life-altering conversation on the importance of creativity, self-empowerment, and leveraging social media for good.
    May this extraordinary woman inspire you to think more deeply about your own story—and the indelible power inherent in sharing it.

    How do you meld passion with purpose? What makes you committed to your cause? And most importantly, what does your podcast do?

He writes 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 recycling the ‘new dad’ excuse to avoid working on his novel.
    Specific topics covered in this episode include:
    RRP Staff wins + a debrief on Rich’s experience in the Malibu Triathlon;Lewis Pugh’s unique relationship with environmentalism & swimming; Rich’s reflection on his upcoming 9 year anniversary of podcasting; andthoughts on curiosity, purpose, and why conversation matters.In addition, we answer the following questions:

    Mel Robbins On Why Confidence Is A Habit

    Mel Robbins On Why Confidence Is A Habit

    People ask me all day long for the secret ingredient to success and a comfortable way through personal transformation.
    My enduring answer: there is none.
    I believe in the individual potential for positive transformation. I’m also a self-help skeptic who greets most #lifehacks with profound hesitancy. There is a line between snake oil and efficacy—and that line is crossed more often than not. So if you struggle with self-confidence, making life changes, finding your purpose, or if the general vernacular that encircles self-improvement—words like motivation, inspiration, and passion—leave you more deflated than empowered, I feel you.
    Today’s guest, the queen of grounded, science-backed personal development is here today to help us sort things out.
    Meet the singular, multi-talented hyphenate Mel Robbins.
    A former lawyer turned CNN legal analyst, turned mega-bestselling author and talk show host, Mel is a powerhouse and one of the most widely booked public speakers in the world. Her work includes the global phenomenon The 5 Second Rule, four #1 bestselling audiobooks, the #1 podcast on Audible, and her videos have over a billion cumulative views, including her TEDx Talk  How to stop screwing yourself over—which has racked up over 27 million views alone.
    The official occasion for this conversation is Mel’s brand new book, The High Five Habit—a must-read primer on how to make believing in yourself a habit so that you operate more empowered and with greater confidence.
    However, this conversation is about so much more, packed with practical, life-altering, science and experience-based wisdom you (and myself included) need to hear.
    Nobody loves making a real difference in people’s lives more than Mel. Her energy is infectious. Her authenticity and earnestness is palpable. Everyone at the studio fell in love with her—and I know you will too.
    To read more click here. You can also watch listen to our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
    My hope is that Mel’s message will do for you what it has for me—remind you to celebrate the small wins, cultivate that bias for action, and get out of your own damn way of creating the life of your dreams.
    Final Note: If you would like to sign up for ‘The High 5 Challenge’—Mel’s 5-day free challenge that begins Oct. 4, click here. For purposes of full transparency and disclosure, we have an affiliate relationship with this endeavor which supports the podcast.
