Ryan Holiday — Turning the Tables (#410)

Welcome to The Tim Ferriss Show! It is — usually — my job to sit down with world-class performers of all different types to tease out the habits, routines, favorite books, and so on that you can apply and test in your own life. This time we have a “turning the tables” episode. What does that mean? Well, I will not be the one doing the interviewing. Instead, I will be the one being interviewed by my friend, Ryan Holiday. So who is this Ryan fella? Ryan Holiday (TW/IG: @RyanHoliday) is one of ...

CS Soapbox: The Good Place Is NBC’s Most Depressing Comedy Ever (In A Good Way)

CS Soapbox: The Good Place Is NBC’s Most Depressing Comedy Ever (In A Good Way) “All humans are aware of death. So…we’re all a little bit sad. All the time. That’s just the deal.”  That quote is taken directly from  The Good Place ’s second season from an episode entitled “Existential Crisis.” That’s what The Good Place has been throughout its four seasons: a well-lit, hopeful, and hysterical contemplation of life’s biggest questions—an existential crisis. The Good Place ’s series fina...

In Iowa, Andrew Yang Considers Who His Supporters Will Back If His Campaign Ends

Five days out from the Iowa caucuses, the race feels like a birthday party without the guests of honor. Three of the top five contenders are stuck in Washington, confined to the Capitol for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Which has created an opening of sorts for Andrew Yang. A candidate’s time in the state should be the “decisive criterion” for Iowa Democrats weighing who they’ll support , the entrepreneur quipped Wednesday morning. For more than an hour Wednesday mor...

"This particular clip has landed with such a bump because it also serves as an example of how inaccurately mediocrities tend to see themselves."

"Rick Wilson’s joke was second-rate and obviously pre-written, and yet Don Lemon reacted as if Wilson was Dave Chappelle — even going so far as to say he 'needed' it. This behavior is learned. Since Donald Trump was elected, a certain set of political 'strategists' — many of whom aren’t actually strategists, Ana Navarro — have come to see CNN as a clearing house for their bad one-liners, each sitting at home preparing zingers that they hope, once delivered, will go viral. This one has gone viral...

Here are the best and worst moments of the ni...

Jonathan Van Ness, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Among Surrogates Standing in for 2020 Hopefuls During Impeachment Trial

(DES MOINES, Iowa) — Steve Sovern had low expectations for a recent event he hosted to support Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign. Iowans are legendary for expecting to meet White House hopefuls in person — multiple times — and the candidate wasn’t going to be there, represented instead by California Rep. Katie Porter. “Surrogates are usually not much of a draw,” Sovern said. But 45 people crammed into Sovern’s Cedar Rapids condo, and Porter, an Iowa native, made such a strong case fo...

Eddie Murphy’s Return To SNL Was A Holiday Miracle

YouTube/NBC This entire episode had me ho-ho-howling (forgive me) from start to finish Hyping something up for yourself, whether it’s a concert or an upcoming movie or even the opening of a new restaurant, can be a dangerous trap to fall into — nothing sucks more than being disappointed by something you’ve been really excited for. So for that reason I was trying to stay relatively cool about Eddie Murphy’s highly anticipated return to SNL, which, lemme tell you, was not an easy task. And...

How Captain Kirk and comedian Dave Chappelle's show helped save the Vikings’ season

As friends across the league pinged Kevin Stefanski's phone with well-meaning text messages, the Minnesota Vikings' offensive coordinator was touched – and a bit confused. This was early October, days after a 16-6 loss to the Chicago Bears dropped Minnesota to 2-2, and put the Vikings' disappointing offense, which mustered a mere 222 yards in the loss, in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
