About The Tim Ferriss Show
The Tim Ferriss Show is often the #1 business podcast on all of Apple Podcasts, and it’s been ranked #1 out of 500,000+ podcasts on many occasions. It is the first business/interview podcast to pass 100,000,000 downloads, it has been selected as “Best of” Apple Podcasts for three years running, and readers of Fortune Magazine‘s Term Sheet recently selected The Tim Ferriss Show as their top business podcast. It has now surpassed 800M downloads.
Past guests include Hugh Jackman, Dr. Jane Goodall, Neil Gaiman, Jerry Seinfeld, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Madeleine Albright, LeBron James, Margaret Atwood, Elizabeth Gilbert, Mark Zuckerberg, Ray Dalio, Michael Lewis, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Kevin Hart, Edward Norton, Tony Robbins, Maria Sharapova, Jamie Foxx, Maria Popova, Peter Thiel, Marc Andreessen, Amanda Palmer, Malcolm Gladwell, Vince Vaughn, Rick Rubin, Reid Hoffman, Jon Favreau, Naval Ravikant, Whitney Cummings, Matthew McConaughey, and 500+ 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.
