I wasn’t about to waste such an opportunity, so I gathered every question I could think of about coronavirus testing, vaccination, and public policy and pressed the record button. This is one of the most important episodes of Remarkable People that you could listen to because it could literally save your life.
This episode’s guest is Tim Kendall. In my humble opinion, Tim’s greatest claim to fame is probably that he was an intern who worked for me. That said, since then, Tim has held somewhat important positions at other companies you may have heard of such as Facebook and Pinterest. And he was much more than an intern at both. He is the person who created Facebook’s monetization strategy as the director of monetization. This was way before the current monetization strategy of enabling foreign governments to influence American elections. He was head of product and then president of Pinterest where he made the company “focus.” Lately, he has appeared in the film The Social Dilemma--which you should watch on Netflix if you are concerned about the future of the world, your kids included. He is currently the president of Moment, a company that fosters physical, emotional, and social health by improving people’s relationships with their phones. He is one of the most qualified people in the world to analyze addiction to social media. He has an undergraduate and MBA degree from Stanford. As an undergraduate, he was on the wrestling team. For those of you that don’t know much about collegiate wrestling, let’s just say that it attracts people who are extremely gritty, intelligent, and dedicated. In this sport, there are few externalities or outside factors to blame. It’s you versus your opponent on a mat. And wrestlers know that there’s no lucrative MLB, NFL, NBA contract at the end of the contract but nevertheless they persist. In other words, wrestlers are the kind of people you’d want on your side.

This episode’s remarkable guest is Dr. Vivek Murthy, the former Surgeon General of the United States in the Obama administration. On Monday, November 9th, President Elect Joe Biden announced the leadership of his coronavirus task force — the first public step in what aides say will be a focus on confronting the pandemic that has claimed almost a quarter of a million American lives. It will be led by Dr. Vivek Murthy, a surgeon general under former President Barack Obama, who has been a key Biden adviser for months and is expected to take a major public role. He has an undergraduate degree from Harvard, an MD from Yale, and an MBA from Yale. His residency was at Harvard Medical School. He started Doctors for America, group of 15,000 doctors and medical students supporting high-quality affordable care. He also started a company called TrialNetworks to increase the efficiency of clinical trials. President Barack Obama appointed him Surgeon General in 2013. While in this position, he issued the first surgeon general’s report on alcohol, drugs, and health and the first Surgeon General’s report on the use of e-cigarettes by young people. He also launched the “Turn the Tide” campaign to address opioid addiction. April 2017 Donald Trump fired Vivek, which I would assert is a badge of honor. At that point Vivek started addressing the medical impact of loneliness and published a book called Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World.

Tim Ferriss discusses being an online influencer, a multiple best-selling author of The Four Hour Work Week and four other books, depression, and why physical exercise is so important to him. People sometimes refer to him as the Oprah of Audio because his podcast has been downloaded more than 500 million times.

Great episode. Dr. Jane's words on the disconnect between our "clever brains" and "human hearts" was especially poignant.
