My mission is to embody and inspire lifelong learning. The Spaniard Show is my realtime learning on air. I talk about books and their lessons (kids' books, too), do interviews and summarize my weekly learnings.

I used to be a Spanish teacher and UFC fighter. Now, I write books, host this show and speak on stages. The Spaniard Show is my daily reps, as training in the gym was to my fighting.

    Books 1046 - Digital Minimalism 1

    This, for a variety of reasons, is one of the most impactful books I've read. My updated social media usage practices are still new (a few weeks in), but I'm confident I have had a mental shift in the way I spend my time on social media. If you're looking to update your social media usage as well, this is a good place to start.

Tyler B. Christensen ,

Covers a lot of ground

This is one of those podcasts that covers a lot of ground. Because Charlie reads and reviews so many books, this is a great place to get ideas... and because there are so many epsiodes you're bound to find stuff that relates to your life. Charlie is a great example of life-long learning and it's inspiring to see how he's spending his time now that he's out of the ring. Great show.
