    Steph Curry

    Steph Curry

    He's the undisputed and greatest NBA shooter of all time. Steph Curry shares the fundamentals and creative art of becoming the best player, husband, father, investor and activist he can be. His 3 NBA rings, 2 MVP's, All-Pro's and All-Stars often come from a flow state. How does he get there? Family, faith, relentless work ethic, staying even-keeled, and coming back to his core values of trust, commitment and care.
    His father Dell taught him to shoot by starting from the paint. Now Steph gets buckets from the logo. I throw him questions from the free throw line and halfcourt. He doesn't hold back.

    Tom Rothman

    Tom Rothman

    He's the Chairman of Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group with 30 years of history having run both independent and major film companies, as well as television studios. With billions of dollars to his name in box office hits, Tom's financed and produced the likes of Titanic, Avatar, Jumanji, Spider-man, Life of Pi, Castaway, There's Something About Mary, Lincoln, Henry V, Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood, and many, many more. On the show he references Leonardo DiCaprio as the Michael Jordan of acting and Meryl Streep as the most intellectual and emotionally intelligent person he's ever come across. That's saying a lot, given he's worked on community-based projects with the last 4 US Presidents and continues to correspond with subsidiaries of Sony Pictures across 40 countries.
    He's done it all. 
    The theatrical business has changed over the last 5 decades. From the emergence of VHS to Blockbuster, on-demand to streaming platforms, Tom's navigated the 5 major media-conglomerates to continued success. There's never been a more exciting time and evolving environment in media than today...and we talk all about it on the show.
    What makes this one of my favorite interviews? Perhaps to no surprise, Tom's an incredible storyteller. Having grown up in Baltimore playing lacrosse then continuing his amateur career at Brown University, Tom still keeps a lacrosse stick in his office today. For athletes, coaches and entrepreneurs alike, we bob and weave from sports metaphors to major business decisions, making this a conversation worth sharing.

    Tony Hawk

    Tony Hawk

    Tony Hawk’s one of the most famous people in the world. You might know of him from hitting the 900 on a half pipe during the X-Games, maybe you’ve played his videogame that’s generated over $1.5 billion in global sales, or watched his multi-lingually produced episode of The Simpsons. You might’ve heard of the guy who skated inside the White House, or visited one of his 1,000 skateparks around the world. Perhaps you’ve purchased one of his Birdhouse skateboards, or used the same version in emoji format from your apple or android keyboard. Over his career, Tony has changed and elevated an entire industry. 

    When I first began playing pro lacrosse, I wanted to have an impact like Tony — both as an athlete and entrepreneur. On the show, he shares moments from his journey — the hard work, failures, emotional setbacks, and high flying successes.

    Season 3 is Here

    Season 3 is Here

    After 77 shows and an 18 month sabbatical, we're dropping our next 12. The guests are insane. Though I was a bit worried and nervous about this season's guest list and remote conditions...I can tell you that there's a reason why each of these athletes, entrepreneurs and thought leaders are world-class – they're humble, hard working, compassionate, and incredible storytellers. 
    Episode 1 through 12 should light your hair on fire...at least it felt that way for me. Each of these women and men shared anecdotes and ideas that have either inspired my next move or have almost immediately been applied to my practices and business. 
    Consider subscribing to the podcast – it goes a long way. And of course, leave a review to tell me what you think. I'm very open to feedback. All I want to do is deliver a show that you love.
    S/o to Public.com – our Presented By partner. By creating a whole new way to invest, Public also makes the stock market social. You can follow investors and discover publicly traded companies to invest in with any amount of money. I post a column weekly there – follow me @paulrabil.

Great interview w/ Mark Cuban

Great to see this podcast hit my feed again after a long hiatus. Love how this show brings together sports, business, and psychology. In particular, the conversation with Mark about sports and the future of media was insightful and thought provoking. Great way to start my day and I can’t wait for the next interview- keep up the good work Paul.
