Podcast – The Tim Ferriss Show


The Tim Ferriss Show is generally the #1 business podcast on all of iTunes, and it’s been ranked #1 out of 300,000+ podcasts on many occasions.  It is the first business/interview podcast to pass 100,000,000 downloads, and it has been selected as “Best of” iTunes for three years running (In 2016 under “most downloaded”).

Past guests include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Foxx, Edward Norton, Tony Robbins, Maria Popova, Peter Thiel, Marc Andreessen, Amanda Palmer, Malcolm Gladwell, Vince Vaughn, Rick Rubin, Reid Hoffman, Jon Favreau, Whitney Cummings, Mike Shinoda, and 200+ more.

Each episode, I deconstruct world-class performers from eclectic areas (investing, sports, business, art, etc.) to extract the tactics, tools, and routines you can use.  This includes favorite books, morning routines, exercise habits, time-management tricks, and much more.

Aside from promo impact (often bigger than full-page NYT, WSJ, or Esquire coverage, or primetime CNN), guests enjoy the show because it’s friendly, long-form, and they have final cut before audio is published. This leads to extremely open, raw interviews and — paradoxically — fewer edits.  Here is a good overview from The Observer: “How Tim Ferriss Became The ‘Oprah of Audio’

Salon has included the podcast in their list of “suggestions to make you remember the world can be a good place.”  It’s about positive tactics you can use, not “gotchas” or other B.S.. The Internet has enough of that, and I wanted to do something to reverse the trend.

DISCLAIMER: The people interviewed are well-trained experts and highly skilled in their areas of practice. They take many safety precautions prior to attempting the activities described. The activities or research discussed in these podcasts should not be attempted without qualified supervision and training with professionals.

It was distilled from more than 10,000 pages of notes, and everything has been vetted and tested in my own life in some fashion.

  1. Hi Tim, Surely you’ve considered posting the transcriptions to those awesome podcasts. I wonder what stops you. It could be offered as a paid subscription (single, any 3 or all podcasts, maybe also translations) with monies going to your favourite charity. I would be thrilled to help with that project actually. Cheers

  2. Goodday Tim,
    I have a suggested “force multiplier” that you can implement to your podcast that will allow you are fans to subscribe by email ( which I prefer) all you have to do is go into your Feedburner settings and click the subscribe by email option.

  3. I’m diving into your 4 Hour Chef audiobook. I think audio books should be treated differently than physical printed books. I am already up to speed on your decades of research and sold on your teaching and mentoring methods. I wished you would adopt the 4 hour Ruthlessly eliminate Any unnecessary fluff that Prevents you to get to the core of the lesson faster..


  4. Rick steves would be phenomenal podcast guest. Check out YouTube video of reference above, it reminds me of the great start up businesses I hear about, he had a a passion, took action based on what he wanted to do rather than what everyone else did, and succeeded wildly. Check it out.


  5. Ok, I am 41 minutes into the Glitch Mob interview (paused right now while I comment)…, I’ve downloaded the Into the Sea album, listened to it twice in the gym this morning, and now I’m posting a comment to the show.

    Seriously awesome band, I keep finding Gems on your podcast. Keep them coming, looking forward to the Amanda Palmer interview.

  6. Great show! Couldn’t leave a comment using my podcast app but wanted to throw a name in the hat of people to interview. Tim Ballard, who was a special agent for dept of homeland security and the CIA, quit govt job to start Operation Underground Railroad. His team collaborates with foreign governments to go undercover into situations in which children are being sold for sex and arrests the people responsible. A documentary of his organization premiered at Sundance this year called, “The Abolitionists,” and the website is http://www.ourrescue.com. Hope you can make it happen.


  7. Love the podcast. A possible guest that I’d to hear you interview is Mark Twight. World renowned Alpine Climber and fitness trainer. Owner of Jim Jones.
    I think he’d be a great addition to your podcast.



  8. Go Tim!

    I really enjoy the content you deliver and the effort you put into your podcast. I listen to about almost 30+ hours of podcasts a week and “THE TIM FERRISS SHOW” is one that I look for and anticipate the most. As GlwGlen Beck put it, you are honestin your approach.

    I am heading to San Francisco fir a night and plan on stopping by Les Joullins Jazz biatro on April 22nd to see “The Charles Unger experience” .
    Any place you recommend visiting nearby?
    Something I should visit?

    Thanks for your work and I look forward to continuing to tune into your show for a long time to come.

    Health and Happiness

    Love the show, thanks!


  13. Tim,

    I’m the latest podcast you briefly mentioned studying the habits of men in their 60s. I’d love to hear a show(s) where you try and expose life hacks, health hacks of fit men ages 60+ via interview.


  14. I’m new to the world of podcasts and cannot thank you enough for all the effort put into these and for free! Spent years listening to tapes & CDs in the car & this is by far exceeded my expectations !

    Thank you for time tip given (cannot remember which podcast ) that really works to make your computer faster ; change your mouse to the fastest setting ! Big results


  15. Hey Tim, I’m just wondering what you recommend for the egg lentil spinach diet. Is it whole eggs or egg whites? Seasoned or not? I just was looking for specifics. I’m a little confused between the books recipe and what I’ve heard on a few of the podcast.
