I recently binged on several dozen episodes of How I built this over a few long flights and a couple long nights. These are what I believe to be the most insightful, heartfelt, and inspiring stories:
- Jonah Peretti (new media mogul)
- Blake Mycoskie (three-time entrepreneur)
- Barbara Corcoran (real estate mogul)
- Sarah Blakely (corset underwear inventor)
- Jimmy Wales (encyclopedia savant)
- Jack Conte (artistic crowd-funder)
- Tony Hsieh (online shoe kingpin)
- Rick Steves (travel magnet)
- Vlad Tenev (Wall Street disrupter)
- Ben & Jerry (modern ice cream pioneers)
Honorable mention: Joe Gebbia (home share inventor)
A good friend of mine recently launched a podcast that examines how authors get their books published. I spoke to him a few months ago, and here is my take on how I wrote and published my two books. Thanks for listening.

I was recently interviewed by Kim Forrester, a wellbeing podcaster from New Zealand, about my book Log Off: How to Stay Connected after Disconnecting.
I hope you enjoy her delightful accent and questions as much as my answers related to sustainable technology use, how quarantine has changed the rules (or hasn’t), and what you can do right now to reclaim your nights and weekends.
Thanks for listening.
You can listen to the 17 minute episode here. Thanks for having me, Jordan.

I was recently on a podcast to talk about my education and career path towards becoming a full-time freelance writer for the past 16 years. If you have 30 minutes to spare, I hope you enjoy my remarks. If you don’t have that much time, the short answer is lots of luck and persistence. Either way, I’m still pinching myself.
Thanks for having me on the show, Doug.
To find out why we’re quitting, what we learned, and what’s the future of manliness, listen here. Thanks to everyone who listened to, supported, and funded the show. I will miss it and hope you enjoy this last episode.
