Description

James Altucher interviews the world’s leading peak performers in every area of life.

If you're old enough, you might have used it to download movies, music, and even games at some point.

Once in a while, I will come across a show that's so good and relevant, I think the listener needs to listen to it, and here's one of them, Real Good Podcast. Real Good by U.S. Bank, hosted by Faith Salie (Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me, CBS Sunday Morning) and is a podcast about the stories of people who are truly making an impact, and the people whose lives are being changed by their efforts.

Has anyone theorized the possibility that only through the repeated extinction events on earth, were 'sentient' beings able to evolve? Meaning, as our mammalian species evolved so did our ability towards the mutation that grew our frontal cranial fat mass. More than that the ecosystems that came to be that also influenced our gene expressions to be what we are today. They would have also been directly affected by mass extinction events. Perhaps when we find out all down and up-chain expressions of our DNA could we then model all outcomes, especially as AI computation gets better. The best mystery ever...life.

I love your description of how America just simply tapped into our "primate" reward system better than other types of economies. It also makes me think of this passage in a different light - "For whoever has innovation, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever lacks innovation , even what he has will be taken away from him ".

This is Gold!!!! Some of my fav. points - model risk - diversification - Always think of the broadest possibility for your idea - And the big one, at least for me - Don't create for $$. Create for passion. You'll always be ahead of your competition if you love it more🤘🤘🤘🤘

Hey Robyn & James! Good to see you breaking out of your shell! Huge! Improvement in a short time! I hadn't realised until I only listened to your voice I instantly felt like you could be a cartoon voice on Adventure Time (our kids and I are re-watching the series) or Disney or anything really. Which leads me to an idea I had for you to do a voice over in a cartoon series you create on parenting. You could also spur this into a read along with the video with a children's book and that would give tons of advert clips ECT. thank you Cheers!
