I’ve been listening to James for years and love his curiosity and vulnerability. I listen to many podcasts but have very few shows on my list. JA is #1 on my list. Thanks James 💪

Don’t listen to them

James, I just found your podcast and I am dancing on the ceilings it’s so awesome. Interrupt guest all you want, talk about yourself, do whatever else these dumb comments are suggesting you do. That’s the point right ... choosing yourself. You are literally sitting across the table from greatness. I suggest you try to get all your questions answered. Plus I hate when the guest goes on too long without your comments. I’m learning a lot from you and your guest. I started a note page in my iPhone titled “ things I’ve learned from the JA podcast” .Like yourself I try to implement suggestion from your guest into my life. I’m using it not just for entertainment but as a class to improve my life.All the best and don’t ever change dude.

This used to be a good podcast, he had great guests with great ideas and thoughts to convey. Yes, his constant interruption is annoying, but talking over guests with his babbling has become unbearable. I continue to download episodes that have good guests, but then just get angry. The latest episode was 45 minutes of babbling word salad between him and his producer.

I hope you read this - this is the first review i’ve ever written. I have been listening to your show for about one year now; I am 21 years old and am currently finishing my 3rd year of college. Your show started out very good for me with good guests and everything. When I first started listening you would ask good questions - yes you would interrupt a lot but it was still focused on your guest. I took a break from podcasts for a while but have started back recently. I listened to the alter ego author interview the other day and knew I needed to write this review. Then I just listened today to the de clutter your mind podcast and I honestly couldn’t finish it James. Your interviews are incredibly hard to finish now because it seems all you can do is talk about yourself. Guests must be beginning to resent coming on your show these days because it seems to just be all about you you you. Not only do you start trying to interrupt within one sentence of an answer but it’s just to talk more about your self. I’m not trying to be mean but after reading a few other reviews I know i’m not out of line. I hope that you are able to read this and improve upon your interviews for your listeners, guests, and ultimately yourself. If you want a good point of reference on good listening, study Guy Raz. Anyway, I know this is long but I wanted to explain why i’m unsubscribing. I will check back periodically to see if you have decided to actually have a good show.

So much fun

I love the way James interviews- he is so curious and well prepared that you will learn more about his guests than any other source.

James is awesome! Over the years I've listened to his podcast, and read his books and blogs and they've changed my life in a positive way. The interviews are are a lot of fun with AMAZING guests and James is always redirecting the conversation on how this could be applied and helpful to the listener. This podcast is a must listen. Thank you James!!

I used to like the podcast.James keeps getting shlockier in his message; and less informative Whatever self he is choosing now,Nyet


by julieluek on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I listened to the first 10 min of one episode. Within those few minutes he 1) mispronounced the guest’s name (she corrected) 2) got the title of her column incorrect (again, she corrected 3) got the title of her book wrong (and yes, she graciously corrected). Also within the 10 minutes he was introducing his guest, he managed to mention his own therapy and insecurity. This display shows a lack of preparation, respect for his guest, and professionalism. If he cares so little about his own podcast, why should I continue listening?

Interesting guests you’ve probably never heard of

I found James Altucher's blog/website a few years ago when I was going through some rough times from a relationship that ended.. I most recently had another failed relationship & was digging through some of my old bookmarks that I knew had helped me get out of my slump. I came across James again but this time I didn't even know he had a podcast, let a lone an amazing one that is so robust & with plenty of episodes. It's helped a lot & get's me excited about the future again. It's unncanny how he asks so many similar questions I would want to ask if I were interviewing his guests. It doesn't bother me the episodes are long at times - heck I even prefer it in most cases. Thanks James & crew for putting this together. It's working & helping so many people like myself :]

Among the Best

by Ericdj on
Rating: ★★★★★

I listen to podcasts almost every single day, and this is one of the best. James has a way of pushing past the fluff and getting to the meat of the issue with some of the most brilliant minds in different areas of expertise.The conversation flows so naturally on this show. You don’t feel like you’re listening to an awkward promotional effort for some author’s book like you do with so many other shows.

The James Altucher Show has become part of my daily routine and I cant get enough of it. The second I wake up, I get a litter stretch in and cook breakfast. This show comes on as soon as I roll out of bed. There’s a valuable lesson learned in every episode, no matter the guest.

James is a great interviewer who does his homework and asks his guests deep, thought-provoking questions. Some shows are mindless motivation, some are informative, and others are just entertaining, but James manages to do it all.

My #1 Show for Personal Growth

by tygertravels on
Rating: ★★★★★

The James Altucher Show is my #1 go-to when I need to hear an uplifting podcast. His podcast is listed under "Business / Investing" but it's so much more than that. I've learned more from James Altucher and his guests than any self-help book I've ever read (okay ... full disclosure: I have a hard time reading personal and entreprenurial self-help books). I save many of the episodes to go back and listen to them again. My #1 take-away from James is try to be 1% better every day. Thanks James, for being authentic, your inquistive interview style, and for providing consistently great content. Lynn

Modeling Curiosity

It took a while for James to grow on me. I simply listened because of his great guests. After about two seasons, he is now among my favorites. I love how he simply models curiosity, wise questions, sincere preparation, putting himself out there, and trying new things.

Thanks for the practical advice!

My favorite Podcast

I’ve been listening to all of James episodes for the last couple of months and loving it! James is so curious and asks such great questions. I’m a fan of 99% of the episodes I’ve listened to but my favorite it the one by Ken Langone! It was amazing! I never heard of him so thank you so much James for having him! His insights were life changing! 🙏🏻💖

He allows mistakes

by biancaflorea on
Rating: ★★★★★

I think it’s great that he allows mistakes, like when got got stood up by the guest. I feel like most people try to hide the downside or the “ugly” or the not so successful moments and it makes them seem perfect and intangible. Seeing him making mistakes and accepting them makes me think that maybe it’s not so bad to lose once in a while and that it really is part of the game. I allowed myself to make more mistakes and to be ok with it. It’s a valuable lesson. Thank you James!

Great Stuff

by RickRockRadio on
Rating: ★★★★☆

James Altucher's podcast is incredible, but he might produce too much content. I find myself several shows behind quite often, so there are some I never listen to. If he releases one which immediately catches my interest, I listen right away; however, I am certain that I am missing some great stuff. Recently, he announced that he would be dropping down to two shows a week -- that's good, becasue maybe I can keep up, but bad because he's probably not covering everyone he wants to. The recent conversation with Jordan Harbinger was great. James asked many of the questions I had been wondering about, e.g., what was the "rest of the story" regarding the change at the Art of Charm. Jordan provided excellent information and insights, especially when he said that A.J. Harbinger is NOT HIS BROTHER. Blew my mind!!! James, keep up the great podcast; it's greatly appreciated!

I have been listening to this since a year and half now. Now my commute has shortened and I can't finish episodes as fast as I could . So sometimes I pretend that I need something far away .

Great Interrupter

by ChristianRachel on
Rating: ★★★★★

I adore James Altucher. He is seemingly laid back in his approach, but he is so clearly well prepared and he is so curious that he sometimes interrupts to ask something -often something I didn’t understand either. Always a great listen, and I always learn something.

Let the guest talk please

by Runsurfhike on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Episode 252. I cannot count the number of times James stops his guest from pursuing his train of thoughts. James will interrupt his guest at least 20 times during the podcast and he seems to talk as much as his guest. Seriously annoying. Even Brandon has to go back to his original answer before he can answer a question asked while he was explaining something.

Good good!

Great show , lately episodes not as diverse

by Jsolazz on
Rating: ★★★★☆

Ive been listeing to the show for about 8 months and loved it from the first episode that I listened to. Today I listeded to the show with Adam Carroll. First let me say that I am an avid listener to various health and wellness podcasts , I found this episode to be one of the weakest and most uninforming shows that James has done. All of Adams information he claims is based on "studies" which it may very well be but that does not make it all correct. While I think he was right on some things he was vague and ambivilant on most. If this makes you feel good do it , if it doesnt them stop.... I was looking foward to a much more in depth well researched show and was quite disappionted . While I know James has a love for comedy it seems that more and more shows are based on entertainment and comedy , Im becoming disinterested. Still think James is gerat !!

Not All Good

by Paul in Houston on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Some of your shows fall short. Your recent interview with Yuval Noah Harari was too much for me. Some of Yuval’a and your hypotheses on what was, what is, and the future were borderline silly. The design of you and all life on this planet is way to complex and precise to be explained by the religion of evolution. If you are really open minded, maybe you should interview someone like Greg Koukl at Stand to Reason. Intelligent design is all around you. God, Judaism, Christianity are fiction!? What makes you so sure? Who owns the plumb line of truth? It isn’t Yuval? You seem to let every wave and wind blow you around.

Hey James,I've been listening to your podcast for awhile now and love The James Altucher Show. My hubby and I have been having our fair share of struggles as entrepreneurs and business owners so I would share my favorite podcasts with him to keep him uplifted and moving forward with new ideas. The challenge is, he wouldn't listen to any of them! Finally out of frustration I said "I have a confession to make, I kinda have a crush on James Altucher because he reminds me of you with the crazy hair, business mind, and mellow voice. He also made millions and lost it all and has some amazing insight.” And guess what, now HE'S obsessed with your show and listens to it all the time too! In fact now he shares episodes with me that he thinks I will benefit from. We discuss what we’ve learned at dinner and it’s been amazing to integrate your thoughts or suggestions into our business to see it grow. Thanks so much from 2 of your biggest fans in Atlanta! If you’re ever in town you have a free place to stay and as a dietitian, I’ll show you what healthy is like! Jennifer & Tim

Love it but please be more succinct

Rating: ★★★★☆

I love everything about this podcast, I became an Altucher fan after reading Choose Yourself and I will continue to support anything he does. With that said, PLEASE try to be more aware of your word fillers (umms, and so’s) I beg of you. It makes it really hard to stay interested in the topic if you ask the same question five different ways or if you try to rephrase every answer.

Great content!
