  1. Is there no link to just download all of them at once to peruse at my leisure? I have bought all of your books that I know about. Do you really expect people to download all of these one by one? It’s much easier to delete what doesn’t appeal to you.

  2. Thanks Tim! This is really cool and helpful.
    By the way, I liked how you ended your conversation with John Crowley on PodCast 225:

    Keep experimenting, work smart and play often!

    New mantra for me.

  3. Tim – Thank you for sharing the transcripts of your podcasts; it will save your audience oodles of time when sharing impactful tidbits of information.

    – Do you think your audience will grow as a result? Are you only measuring on downloads?
    – Why did you choose now to transcribe all of the podcasts instead of as you released them or batching?

  5. Thank you Tim – seriously. That “Wouldn’t it be great if there were transcripts for all his interviews?” thought at the back of my head just materialized before me

  6. These are SO APPRECIATED!! Maybe I’m the outlier weirdo, but I prefer reading most of the time. I can read faster than listening, and it’s easier to visually scan and find what I need to focus on. Can’t do that while listening. Maybe smart reading is becoming a lost art/skill…

    I have been a silent fan of your books and your approach to life. I want to tell you that these transcripts are JUST WHAT I CRAVED FOR. Am just not an audio guy and brief reads are perfect for me. Thanks for taking care of this one.

    Warm Regards

  8. These are much appreciated. I do wonder, however, why they are all not a downloadable PDF and only the first 150. Perhaps just a marketing thing, but it would be nice to be able to grab them all to have an easily searchable database. Ah well, you have to work for what you want!

  9. Awesome!!!!

    I’ve been waiting/hoping for this for years. It takes too long to listen – us reader types can absorb much faster from a transcript.

    I’m going to go read them all, start to finish, over the coming weeks.

    Thanks Tim!

  11. I have a number of hearing imapered colleagues and I know how much they value transcripts thanks for doing this. Would you be willing to share the process you used to get the transcripts? It would be great for accessibility if more people could find a way to make their content available.

  12. Thank you Tim…I wish there is an easy way to download all the transcripts in a single click (I know, its too much to ask for 🙂 )
    This will be my Encyclopedia for anything technology, business, lifestyle.
    Do you have a list of books that each of your guests have recommended in the podcast? I have tried googling in the past with no great results. If you don’t have it yet, I am happy to go through the transcripts and gather them for your listeners.

  14. Hi Tim, Thanks for your great podcasts! I know you are focused on health and vitality. Please have Dr. Zach Bush on your show to talk about Glyphosate and its affects on the planet and what we can do about it. I have heard him speak many times and I believe you would really enjoy talking to him to help get his message out to the world. Keep up the great work!! Cheers, Michael Galasso

  18. hey tim, it is very nice of you to post them. your fictional character (the construct i have of you) is an inspiration for me. i think you should interview Wael Ghonim @Ghonim ( at twitter). he is an entrepreneur, engineer, googler, and the starter (or one of the starters) of the Egyptian revolution. it would be an inspiration about disruption, using social media for the common good, and who he magically convinced millions of Egyptians to finally disrupt.

  19. Thank you Tim. Appreciate the effort you took to do the transcripts. As a hearing impaired person podcasts are a pain when you are in a group and can’t join in the conversation with friends after. No more isolation! Now to speed read thru the transcripts…

  20. Love your work Tim. If you are looking for a real time source for captioning or other services to help the program communicate better with fans who have hearing loss or other hearing struggles community please let me know. I am friends with the owner of a great communication, caption, text, etc company who works a bunch in the education field and with major corporations all over the states. I’ve never heard of a podcast helping this community so much and he’s an innovative guy, maybe you could pair up. Thanks. Joe

  21. As I type this, I am taking a 24 hour break from thru-hiking the 2650 mile Pacific Crest Trail. I only have 350 miles to go! During this hike, I have listed to nearly every one of your episodes and I’m so grateful for these transcripts so I can go back to find particular passages that resonated with me, but wouldn’t be able to go back and listen through the hours and hours and hours of listening I have accumulated over the last few months. Thank you so much for the inspiration throughout my journey!

  22. Thanks a lot, Tim! Your podcasts, which I listen to during commute every day, have really changed the way I look and attack my problems.

    I’m pretty sure you must have read the book, Relentless by Tim Grover. If not, I really think you’ll like it. Also, I would like you to consider bringing Tim Grover on your podcast. That’ll make a great conversation.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  24. Thank you, Tim. The main paradigm shift you initiated in social medias is not the concept behing your first book but the essential idea that great success comes from sharing widely. This is how I introduce you to people who do not yet know you: “Tim Ferriss is a giver”. With your podcast and later books you have been inviting decision-makers, role-models and experts to do the same. You certainly deserve all the success and love you are getting!

  28. This must have been a headache to put together. But it is worth it because there are friends of mine whom I have been annoying for years to listen to your podcasts but they hate listening to podcasts and love reading.

    So I’m pretty sure they will love these transcripts. They’ll finally get the opportunity to have their lives positively changed forever by this guy called Tim Ferriss whom I mention virtually in every conversation.

  32. Thanks for adding the transcripts! As an English teacher, I look for audio content for my students that has transcripts, so they can listen and use the transcripts to check what they don’t understand. This is a great learning resource for them to use to improve their English. It’s also great for you, as it’s an excellent way to help expand your audience to listeners who’s first language may not be English (like most of the people on the planet). Now that there are transcripts, I’ll be promoting your podcasts to English learner throughout the world!
