You’ll become a better human by listening to Lex 🔥

As Marshall Mcluhan said, “we shape our tools and thereafter our tools shape us.” I don’t know if anyone seems to be better suited for podcasting, and podcasting for his unique insights and voice, than Lex. One of the most inspiring and empowering podcasts out there. If you haven’t started listening to Lex on a regular basis, you’re truly missing out on one of the best and most engaging minds of our time.

Awe inspiring

This guy is unique, and unique what we all should strive to be. Smart guy clearly, tech and AI his expertise, yet he's a competive Brazilian jiu jitsu practicioner (black belt), plays the guitar, and LOVES poetry. That was to give you an insight into his mind and life, but what I love about him is, he always does these podcasts and pursues science and wisdom, with happiness, purpose and joy for society as a whole, but there is always these nuggets he pursues and shares with us to help elevate us individually. I applied to be his assistant, just saying, can't say how much I love this guy and his work :)

Love it

I love this show. The only thing I don’t like about Lex is that he’s friends with Michael Malice. Otherwise it’s a very entertaining and informative show. I learn something every time I listen and his guests tend to be incredibly smart. I love lex’s line of questioning and big-picture, laid back style. I also like that he brings love into everything.
