Excellent podcast. Self-help for smart people indeed- except that the topics and language are completely accessible, fun, and easy to listen to. Evidence-based means it's been researched and proven effective. Never boring, always intriguing... the only problem is that I want to listen to and do it all at once and that's not possible. Keep up the great work, Matt. And thank you!

Great job of translating the latest science into actionable strategies.

Practical, Empirical, Inspirational

by Evidence-based professor on
Rating: ★★★★★

The Science Of Success has easily been my favorite podcast of 2018! As a clinical psychologist, professor, and learning science researcher, I appreciate Matt’s choice of guests and the way they distill the information into easy-to-digest principles. The discussion always leads toward actionable steps a listener can put into practice in their own life. The only downside for me is I end up reading too many books at one time because I am interested in all of them!

Every week is thought provoking

by Evil Puppy 1gou on
Rating: ★★★★★

Matt interviews thought leaders in performance psychology every week. He is obviously well read, truly passionate about the topic, and is a great interviewer. Topics range from brain chemistry to evolution of mind. He also provides extras in his weekly emails, print outs and YouTube videos, which are very useful.

Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast has really opened a new door in my life. It inspired me to quit a job i had dragged through and hated for almost 4 years. I was in a bad place and Matt helped me develop tools I had never been able to tap into. My journey is far from complete but the Science of Success has been the staple in adding change and real self confidence and self control to my life.

5-17-18 Five Things You Never Knew About Building Self Esteem

by TimStorey on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Had rated this SoS a 5 after listening to several episodes, but I just listened to the 5-17-18 podcast and was perplexed and disappointed that these constructs (ego, self-love, etc.) were used. I don't think these fall in the realm of science anymore. Philosophy/religion or something. Disappointing and puzzling.
