early bird ,

Invaluable interview with Chamath - Oh Wow!

The Knowledge Project is full of incredibly valuable explorations thanks to Shane ( and team ) .

This interview with Chamath is so thoughtful and full of invaluable knowledge about self and investing as a manifestation of your goals and values. I learned so much from Chamath and I plan to listen again. Chamath speaks the truth in an accessible and compassionate way.

In fact, I had stopped listening to this podcast for a while because of the time needed to listen as interviews can be long , but the beauty of them is they go so deep into complex topics and Shane gets candid insights from outstanding well chosen guests .

Make the time and you will learn a lot and have in Chamath and Steve Jobs’ words more “oh wow” moments in your life !

Quickly becoming my favourite.

I can’t believe I had been missing out on this podcast! This is the first podcast I have listened to where I have enjoyed every _single_ episode. The topics are so diverse. The conversation feels casual, yet structured. Every guest is interesting, and Shane always seems to get the best out of them. I have already recommended it to a few of my friends, and I can’t wait to listen to more :)

very boring

Like listening to a conversation with your IT guy
