Do you have a teenage boy who struggles in school? Or do you have a younger son who you can imagine struggling in school as he gets older? He may be an otherwise capable young man, but seems apathetic and unmotivated, to the point you think he’s not excelling simply because he’s lazy. My guest …
From Joy Division to New order, and Electronic and Bad Lieutenant, Bernard Sumner has always stayed on the front lines of New Wave and Post-Punk music. What happens when you listen to every New Order and Electronic album for a week? Hammond and Brian are here to tell the tale!
If you’re a fan of podcasts, my next guest likely needs no introduction. His name is Tim Ferriss, and he’s the author of several New York Times bestselling books and the host of the popular podcast, "The Tim Ferriss Show." Tim’s out with a new book called "Tools of Titans," which distills the hours of interviews he’s conducted with high-performing guests on his podcast to give readers the best tactics and strategies on how to live a successful, flourishing life.
Today on the show, Tim and I discuss self-improvement advice and the survivorship bias, the common habits of high-performers, and how to ask better questions so you can learn things more quickly. Tim also discusses his struggle with depression and what’s worked for him in keeping the black dog at bay. This podcast is crammed with actionable advice, so you’ll want to take notes.

The "community" can handle it, really.
And let’s be honest: most guys in the "community" are bumbling fools who don’t understand the first thing about real self-improvement—even if there are exceptions.
Anyway, Merlin’s thesis remains valid.
It doesn’t require tearing down others; he just chose to dismantle his own (somewhat true) concept of the "community" to illustrate what to do better.
That’s what we should all be focusing on anyway: how can I do better?
How can you?
Writer and podcaster Merlin Mann joins Antony to stand up (mostly) for the “Watchmen” movie, discuss the difficulty of separating source material from its adaptation… and then there’s that ending.
