Today we have on Norman Clark: College Graduate, Teacher, Writer, Entrepreneur and a Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta enthusiast.

We talked about his early life, his first few life changing friends, how powerfully positive his mom’s influence was, running a business while having a full time job, and his advice to teachers.

Thank you Norman. First, you were fucking hilarious. This may be the podcast I laughed the most on (either this one or London’s). I was really impressed and admire how candidly you talk about what others would be embarrassed by. Thank you for your time brother.

I first met Charles through basketball, (we trained together after high school when we were both entertaining the dream of playing overseas). I stayed a weekend allstar and Charles moved on to play college ball and became a fitness coach. He currently trains athletes in Las Vegas and founded Prepare Perform Prosper. If you’re interested in a swift kick of inspiration, listen to his story.

We get into his early life, his perspective on alchemy, his mother’s transformational example, his coaching experience, and I get him to answer some word association questions.

Thank you for your time Charles. You know for damn sure you’ll have to come back on when you have more time. Thank you for sharing candidly who your mother was to you, and who you want to become. This conversation motivated me. Let’s do this again soon.

What we talk about the emergence of Exuberant Animal, Evolutionary Mismatch, the “Long Body,” his writing process, Warrior Activism, and how to live a life for the 7th generation.

Thank you Frank. For someone with your accolades, you were incredibly generous with your time. I admire what you’ve done in the world, and I’m grateful I get to share your vibration with my audience.

Scott is the embodiment of Metaprogramming. He was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Depression, and was 100 pounds overweight as a teenager. After a 60 day juice fast, an ayahuasca experience, and integrating Wim Hof's breathing method into his daily life, he is now no longer diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis or Depression, and lost all his excess weight.

We talk about his journey from disease to health, the creation of his online course, his 60 day juice fast, and his ayahuasca dance.

Scott, thank you for coming on and sharing your journey. The amount of change you've created in your life in just a few years will inspire people. I appreciate your candor admitting your depression and anxiety. Thank you for your time and I wish you the best on your journey.

If you’ve ever been interested in the new movement movement (lol), evolutionary biology, or curious about how you could improve your joint pain, give Chandler some of your time. I was really impressed with how candid and authentic he was with me. It was our first time talking and he feels like a friend. There are actually quite a few practical nuggets you could start implementing today.

We talked about Gestalt psychology, the death of his “conventional” career goals, and how he became a successful online coach.

Thank you Chandler for coming on and sharing your knowledge with the audience. I know a lot of us (me for sure), have movement patterns molded by desk life, and this podcast really generated some practical advice, and some great book recommendations. Looking forward to your growth brother.

When thinking how to introduce Kat and this conversation, Grace was the first word that came to mind. Within minutes the conversation turned to the recent passing of her father, and her ability to explore what happened, offer advice, and provide perspective was something I admired while editing. If you want to hear a candid conversation about grief, listen to her.

We talk about grief, how to handle it, how to be a friend to someone grieving, what not to say to someone grieving, her advice for people interested in trying a vegan diet, Buddhism, God, our idea of the afterlife, and Kat somehow got me talking about Jesus lol.

Kat, I'm honored you came on the podcast and spoke as candidly as you did. I'm seriously impressed by your compassion and what you want to dedicate your life to. I wish you the best on your journey, and I think you sharing your story is going to help people. I'll come to one of your classes soon! Namasteezy.

I met Cody through Daniela, (if you know her and want her on the podcast, pressure her for me lol). We instantly started geeking out and knew we needed to do a podcast. Cody is a Biochemist in an Immunology/Microbiology lab working with studying Tuberculosis. He gets to wear hazmat suits.

We talked about his field of research, his early life, his college crisis, what gives him flow, I ask him about his highest life goal (and he is candid), what might be the agnostic scientist’s heaven, his dance with religion, and his advice to people thinking about graduate school.

Cody, thank you for coming on. I know a lot of my intelligent but introverted friends don’t think they could bring value to the audience and I just don’t agree. I think your honesty about your mini-college crisis and your insight into grad school is going to bring a lot of people value. Looking forward to seeing your published papers. Good luck brother.

James brought some muhh-fucking brain candy. Once he got going, I barely talked. He is a podcaster and coach in the “ReWilding” community. He helps domesticated sapiens (you and I) rewild themselves.

We talk about Rewilding (fascinating and new idea to me), the metaphor of the two wolves inside us, his personally rock-bottom, the caveman diet, “shoshin,” Transition culture, his morning and evening routine, and his microdosing experience.

James, thank you for coming on and enlightening my audience and I. You’ve got an intimidating amount of charisma and passion (to my insecure ego haha). I wish you the best on your journey, and I look forward to seeing your success bloom that I’m convinced is inevitable. Namasteezy brother.

I asked Mike to come back because he was one of the most popular guests I’ve had on so far. I asked him to lend his expertise on diet and stress management. (I apologize for the audio, I’ve figured out why it’s sounded poor lately. Hint: I’m an idiot.)

In this episode, I focus on extracting Zwack’s knowledge on diet and stress management. We get into his fundamental dietary advice, his ideal breakfast, a novel perspective on water,

Zwack, thank you for your time and genuinely offering your expertise. I appreciate you so gracefully letting me cut in. I get excited talking with you. I wish you the best and look forward to you slaying dragons. Namasteezy.

The first time I met Zerin, it was at Aubrey Marcus's Go For Your Win graduation. We weren't able to talk but we made eye-contact, and i'll never forget it; I got the genuine sense that this dude "got it." It is hard to articulate, but the podcast proved my intuition. I don't think Zerin realized it, but his cadence and tone from the beginning of the podcast slowed my caffeinated mind down, and we got deep and genuine right away.

We get into the psychology of confidence, his personal myth, the power of coaches in our early lives, how podcasts deepen conversations, the exponential power of authenticness, intuition vs rationality, how I got into studying habits, Zerin's ideal habits, the philosophy of pragmatism, dealing with the Shadow, our ideas on "Alpha," and what his business, Xpand Yourself.

Zerin, fucking thank you for coming on. Your genuineness shone through like a gawwwddamn supernova. I resonate with your mission and your business, and I look forward to seeing it Xpand (you see what I did there haha.) Love you brother. Slay Dragons. Namasteezy.

Rachel is one of the most interesting people I know. She is one of the most intensely-hippie hippies I know, yet she’s a fucking attonery. I loved this podcast because she is one of the only guests who challenge me on my ideas. I don’t get that enough and her passion, open-mindedness, and sharp intellect made this an unique and enjoyable linguistic incursion.

We get right into nature vs nurture, addiction, how the little things you do can change someone’s life, the evolutionary meaning of the Medusa Myth, how we can change the world, what her dream job is, the two sides of manipulation, why I don’t watch the news/television, a really useful memory technique, her routines (or anti-routines),

Rachel, thank you for challenging my ideas and bringing your perspective. I love how different we are yet we’re able to have a meaningful conversation. Thank you for your time, honesty, and communicating with one of these weird humanoids. Looking forward to you reinvigorating your alt-instagram account. Namasteezy.

Josh inspires me. He is young, sincere, and fucking ambitious. You can feel is passion and his sincerity during our talk. We spoke a few days after he did a few ayahuasca ceremonies and his King archetype was churning.

We talk about getting too esoteric, using pragmatism and exercise to get grounded again, psychedelic integration, how the inner judge is an evolutionary adaptation, his recent ayahuasca experience, and his core habits that ensure a good day.

Josh, thank you for coming on. Your vision and passion made for a fucking awesome podcast and I look forward to seeing your podcast grow. I've got a great feeling you're going to be doing big things. Namasteezy brother.

Listen to Adi talk for a minute and you'll sense how genuine and present this guy is. The moment we connected he felt like a brother. He's a practicing Zen student, who also spends everyday trying to improve the health of children. This was one of my favorite podcasts.

We get into his path to becoming a dentist, Zen Meditation, finding mindfulness in repetitive tasks, the power of habits, how goals calibrate your nervous system, his top dental advice, and both our conceptions of religion.

Adi, thank you for your infectious laughter and your presence-ness. I'm grateful we've connected through Aubrey's course and I see this being a lifelong friendship. I'm looking forward to seeing what you manifest.

Brett is an Audio Engineer. I've known him for a few years and he has grown a lot in that time span. He is one of the most humble talented people I know. You wouldn't discern from his tone and demeanor that the guy can create phonic symphonies  by himself.

Brett got me riled up in a productive way. We get into the importance of finding your craft, an alternative perspective on myths, goal setting, his journey to creating his album, and the Mandela Effect.

Brett I want to thank you for your courage and honesty when you frankly admitted to having clinical depression. I think a lot of people feel ashamed of any mental disorder they're diagnosed with, and I think your story is going to help at least a few listeners dance with depression.

Sama has this air about him where you can tell he is really listening, and it made me babble about myself more than usual. He is one of the most sincere humans I've met. You'll feel it.

We get deep into movies and myths quickly. We touch on how reality can feel like an illusion, the need for modern initiation rituals, our take on ritual magic, how to be heroic, and how we both deal with writer's block.

Sama, thank you for your presence. You drew out some nuggets in this podcast. Thank you for your cooking and your poetry. I appreciate how dedicated you are to helping others connect with their inner worth. I love you brother. Keep writing.

Rud is a force. She's got charisma and swag bursting from her 5'4 frame. She's a hustler, filmmaker, and entrepreneur.

We cover her early life, when she knew she wanted to be a filmmaker, and her path from being alone and lost to being on the cusp of producing her first short film.

Ashleigh is one of the few people I know who is using her talent to reinvigorate her home town. I respect her and her vision, and I look forward to seeing it manifest. Thank you Ashleigh.

Blake is a Father, Husband, Austin Native, and Rabbit Trail Seeker (lol).

His story is inspiring. He is an authentic father and husband who married and settled down early and is currently reevaluating his purpose and mission. This is a great podcast for any of you that are young parents now, or had children young.

Blake, your boys are lucky to have such a genuine Father. Thank you for being honest on this podcast. And I'm looking forward to the blossoming of your King project.

There is a great synchronicity moment at the 55 minute mark.

Mike and I have had great conversations every time we've talked. He has a PhD in Chiropractics. He since has embarked on the Entrepreneurial life. At his core he has an engineer/inventor's mind and it's easy to explore ideas with him.

We cover his early life, his quest for his PhD, and his core habits. We cover a wide span of topics and there are a lot of gems. The more scientific and entrepreneurial minded people will enjoy this one.

Thank you Goober for the laughter and music. It was beautiful (check out the opening and closing songs she gives.)

 

Christine, also known as “Goober,” left home to pursue music in Austin. She shares her childhood, her journey, 2 beautiful songs, and when she found out she was gay.

 

At the 46 minute mark, we get into a scientific technique used to help people quit smoking. I think that is a piece of information that could help anyone.

I love talking to London. His presence makes you smile, and his hustle makes you admire.

We go through his personal story from hitting a Pinata at 3 to self-starting his business. He shares his lowest point and what got him through it. And, in London's style, he makes a special announcement.

Near the end London reveals his number 1 daily habit, and he shares what he'd like the end of his life to look like to feel fulfilled.
