  1. Good to hear that Peterson is back. I LOVED the fact that he provided some very compelling push back to some of your beliefs/comments. That rarely happens in your interviews, and you dealt with it surprisingly well. Congratulations.

    1. Hi, Poonam –

      Episode #544 was a repost of Episode #214. Please enjoy the transcript of Episode #214, Tim’s interview with Debbie Millman titled “How to Design a Life.”

    1. Hi, Adam –

      If you go to Tim’s YouTube page and find the video you want, you can click the three dots at the bottom-right of the video and choose to show the transcript. You can then find the passage you want and you’ll see the timestamp inside the YouTube video. Note, however, that timestamps on YouTube don’t always line up with timestamps on the blog, due to different editing for video and audio-only. You can also use the player embedded in the blog post to find the passage you want, but it could take longer. The timestamps in the player on the blog align with the timestamps in the Show Notes, which you can find further down the blog post page.

    1. Hi, Jieun –

  2. I just want to say thank you Tim Ferriss for doing this, I have learned a ton in the short 6 months since I discovered your podcast and the show notes are an amazing resource!
