Update: 2022-12-231


Mark Manson graduated from college and entered the workforce at one of the worst possible times: the Great Recession of 2008. After bouncing around several odd jobs and living on his friend’s couch, he became a full-time blogger and bestselling author. In today’s episode, Mark discusses the downfalls of hope and why we’ll never be satisfied unless we face Mark’s uncomfortable truth of life head-on. 

Mark’s most recent book, Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope, debuted at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list. Mark is most known for writing The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life, which came out in 2016 and has become a massive global bestseller with over 8 million copies sold worldwide.
