I just love this podcast! My favorite episode is with James Clear on habits and I’ve dubbed it the 1% episode. Really rich content on making small positive changes that add up. Always great content in every episode.

I started from the beginning and have loved every minute of it. I can’t wait to catch up and keep up. I’ve learned so much and I’m eager to her about the next topic. Great guests and great interviews.

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.

This show is even better than what I thought I was looking for when searching for a podcast on personal growth. Not only is there a large variety of topics covered, but they are all evidence-based tips. Love this concept. Thanks Matt!

I’ve done a ton of self study on psychology and brain science. This podcast and been an awesome refresher and expounder on some of the most interesting things I’ve learned about how us humans work!It’s also taught me some great stuff I don’t know and some actionable strategies on how to maximize my productivity. Thanks Matt Bodnar for putting our such high quality, engaging, and interesting content!!

As a professional classical musician, I find this podcast essential listening! It is right up there in my top 4 podcasts, and I find myself WAITING for the next episode to be released. Matt is a fantastic interviewer and picks currently relevant guests that share immediately valuable and actionable steps. I’m always motivated to practice after listening, even though it’s not directly about music. Thanks for the great work on this Matt! (And nope, I don’t personally know Matt!)

I've been listening to Matt's podcast for a few months now and all I can say is I wish I had found this sooner. I've been introduced to so many new ideas and insights from so many impressive people. I've read some excellent books written by guests Matt had had on his show. Keeps me thinking and moving forward in life. Highly recommended.

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

by TimStorey on Aug 10, 2018
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.

This is one of the few podcasts that I've NEVER unsubscribed from, and NEVER deleted to make more space on my phone. It is an absolutely essential podcast. I've been listening for at least the last 2 years, I think longer though. This podcast has helped me in so many ways, the content is always relevant to my life and to my healing journey. So much good content, so many amazing guests, I am constantly inspired by this podcast!

Too much advertising

by Happy user13675 on Jul 05, 2018
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Dude, you need to go easy on self promotion and advertising, it shows that you are making the podcasts for the money and it is annoying for the listeners. Go make money somewhere else and clean up your podcasts.

Love it!

I’ve always been a music-in-the-car kind of person and didn’t think I’d want to listen to people just talking on podcasts... especially since my ride to/from work isn’t very long. However, I am a huge believer in continuous, personal growth so I thought I’d check out a few and thought they were fine... but it wasn’t until I came across The Science of Success that I realized what an opportunity I’ve been missing! Not only do I love the topics, but Matt’s gifted ability to ask enriching questions helps guide the discussion and adds so much value and perspective to the already great content. What a fun podcast for inquisitive minds!

Science has support for Success

by Jaltheaus on Jun 13, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast proved itself most useful last semester at Washburn University. I started listening after one of my Psychology professors came to class raving about how she avoids television, and listens to podcasts. I had been struggling, and I sought out some motivation by browsing various Psychology and/or self-help related shows, when I stumbled upon The Science of Success. Since listening, I’ve been able to better structure my time, focus on and prioritize tasks, improve my positive outlook on situations, and perform better under pressure. I was able to turn my semester around, and make the Dean’s List for the Spring semester. I must give some credit to this podcast for helping me find my drive, and how to build better, focus-driven habits. ~Jaltheaus Palmer Jr.

These Strategies Really Help

I’ve been listening to the podcast when i can for about a year. I’ve used many of the tips to help myself become more efficient at what I’m doing, and more impactful. Most of us in today’s professional world operate at a continuous time deficit, or even at time poverty. Putting the tips from this podcast to work for you can improve your outlook. I’m currently using the Commit Action service promoted by the podcast and am really looking forward to doubling down on the strategies learned in the podcast.

Love this podcast!

There are so many great ideas presented by Matt and his guests--hard to know where to start. Maybe a favorite is Essentialism or the one about 5 Things you didn't know about Self Esteem. Great listening and great ideas. Thanks for your work on this!! Keep them coming!

I’m so grateful that I came across this podcast last week. In just a few episodes, my life has been completely changed. I feel like it was tailor-made for my life and is exactly what I’ve been needing for years. It’s also amazing that the interviews continue to cover subjects that I’ve pondered for a long time and especially cool that the follow-up questions that Matt asks are always exactly what I would ask or are related to what I want to better understand! Whenever I’m feeling uninspired or unmotivated, I look through these podcasts and always find one that picks me up and puts me back where my mind needs to be. Thank you!! Update: I’ve listened to almost all of the podcasts since discovering them a couple months ago and I just wanted to thank Matt for creating this life-changing podcast. My life has been changed in so many ways-for the better, of course. As someone who has been putting in the work for the past 15 or so years to try and be the best person I can be, for myself and the world, it means something when I say that this has had the single greatest influence on me. I can’t thank Matt (and his guests) enough!

I just listened to the Kevin Horsely episode on Memory Palaces and Journeys. I have often heard of these techniques and tried them, but have never heard such detailed descriptions of why it works. Matt’s line of questioning was intuitive, kept me interested, and wanting more info at the end. Great job!

Great information always

I've gotten really into podcasts since I started working from home. By far, the most positive, life-changing podcast I listen to is the Science of Success. It makes me aware of the current science on so many aspects of my personal and work life that I want to change for the better. Then, the next thing I know I'm changing my behavior because of what I've learned. Thank you, Matt!

Science of Success is an excellent podcast. I appreciate that the host gives adequate “run way” and lets each guest expound on their topics of choice. The result is in depth and interesting treatises on the principles underlying success and the ways in which we each interact with the world.
