Cleaned the house.
I began listening to your podcast today. I found the Matthew Mcconaughey and being a Texan I started with that episode. Then I began listening to the cleaning the house podcast and heard that you were going to be voting for 2 of the most corrupt candidates next to hilary clinton and realized that decided to keep listening to Joe Rogan.
Will you be my psychologist Rich? I’ll fire my guy right now!
A MUST LISTEN TO SHOW!
Rich is a fantastic host who brings on some incredible guests. Every episode keeps me engaged and I always walk away learning something new! I highly recommend giving this show a listen!
Grounded. Articulate. Thought provoking. Intimate. Intelligent. Captivating. Mind blowing. Love your podcasts which I listen to when I run. I am amazed and inspired by the teachings of your guests. I can’t get enough.
This podcast will change your life
One of the best things that has ever happened to me and my health was stumbling upon this podcast. If you feel like something is missing from your life... listen to this podcast. I often feel rejuvenated and in a better head space after listening to one of his episodes. I just received his new book, Voicing Change, for Christmas and every page is, as he puts it filled with timeless wisdom and knowledge. Thank you Rich, I look forward to your podcasts every week!
My Goto Podcast on Long Runs
This is my goto podcast for long runs. 20 miles fly by easily and I always look forward to the conversations. While I don't adhere to some of his guests point of view, listening always affords me a chance to inquire with civility and learn. We can all learn from one another. Rich is just a decent human who is genuinely interested in the story of a life lived. Highly recommended.
I want to say thank you for continuing to provide good guests, topics and sharing great information.I’ve been listening to you for a while now and each Monday I look forward to listening to what you have to share.
Such a great podcast.....really enjoy listening on my runs here in Maui. Can't thank you enough Rich. Huge inspiration. Many mahalos to you brother!
New Age Dribble
These new age gurus, priest class sorcerers and practitioners of scientism will gobble up your energy as you search longingly for an external authority to fill the emptiness.
Riding with a Giant
Thanks, Rich, for the great interview with Laird. I loved the relatable stories on raising daughters and looking to elders for wisdom. Keep cranking out excellent content.
Good production, boring interviewer
For anyone who is even remotely involved in endurance events this podcast should really sound like an echo chamber. It’s pretty much the same monotonous “zen” stuff you’ll hear from every other person who has run an ultra, does yoga, or lives a vegan lifestyle. The production is top-notch, but the interviews are pretty boring and surface level.
He’s the male Gwyneth Paltrow
A very goop (and good) podcast
Sunshine Smiles and Sugar.
A different pace
I don’t normally go in for the “guru” mindset but Rich has way of getting me to change my pace.
Used To Be Great.
This was one always one of my favorite podcasts but it had become a leftist take on life during the election cycle so I took a break from it. However, lately it seems a little better. Maybe not as preachy. I like Rich’s style, especially his relatability, honesty and humanity.
Restorative, necessary dialog
Our health is made of many components as is our being. I know when I really want to learn something whether it's about water quality, plant-based eating or techniques for thriving during trying times I can turn to Rich. Rich’s wisdom on each topic is necessary for real dialog. His thoughtful approach and openness is inspirational. His recent pivot with Roll On has been refreshing. He and Adam help me to feel less isolated and alone. Thank you both for bravely tackling politics regardless of the naysayers. The health of our planet hinges on these conversations.
Community & inspiration for the Journey
I've listened to Rich's podcast for years from the very first episode taped in some echo-y storage room in Hawaii. I had read Finding Ultra and embarked on my own journey to transform my life. Rich's podcast provided a stimulating, steady stream of inspiration, thought-provoking conversations but also a sense of community, which I cannot emphasize enough. I barely missed an episode. The recent ”pivot” into politics is a complete turn-off and intrumentalizes the podcast to now push a political agenda and narrative. No thanks. There's enough of that out there.
Roll On, love the conversations
I have really enjoyed the Roll On episodes, they provide deep, thoughtful and positive analysis on today’s current events. Thank You for taking this risk and pivoting to include Roll On along with the regular guest inverview Pod Casts.
LOVE THE ROLL ON EPISODES
I’ve listened to Rich and been a fan from the beginning; frankly, I started skipping some episodes as they were repetitive. His partnering with Adam for Roll On episodes has rejuvenated my interest in the podcast - they make a great team, providing insightful, informed, meaningful conversation on issues that affect all aspects of our health and well-being, both physical and psychological.
I LOVE ROLL ON!! MORE PLEASE!!
Long time listener but the new Roll On miniseries are my favorite episodes. I could listen to Rich and Adam banter on for hours. I appreciate the honesty and willingness to converse about difficult topics. It’s refreshing and inspiring. Keep them coming!!!
I’ve been listening to rich since day 1 and quickly became hooked. This podcast is by far one of the best ones out there because he doesn’t stick to a specific narrative and continues to speak to truth about being as helpful as possible to better people’s lives. Every conversation he has brings in a different point a view and shines a new light on topics that are incredibly important and necessary. Rich has changed my life in more ways than one. I credit this podcast to changing the way I think and operate as a human being. Long story short I left a career that was sucking me dry and opened me up to a life that is now full of joy, purpose and fulfillment. This podcast is the first one I share with others and can’t speak enough praise about it. Thank you so very much for being you and being someone that stands proudly as the “lighthouse” you always speak to. The world is certainly a better place because of you. 🙏🏻
In touch with reality
Thank you for pivoting to some politics. It is so important to be in touch with reality.
Been listening off and on from the start. I really like some of the new show formats. This show is starting to evolve and take some risk. I personally will always be a fan of the health, fitness, and nutrition interviews. I would like to suggest some audience write-in QA shows once a month or so.
Speak from your mind and heart
I initially came to the podcast for the great guests and advice about diet and exercise. But, have now found myself really enjoying the roll on rants. Keep it up. Long time listener, first time reviewer.👍
Not like it used to be
I have listened since the beginning. I love the interviews of old...with athletes, coaches, and health experts. Lately the episodes are too political.
Not for me anymore
I subscribed to this podcast and initially really enjoyed it for the most part. David Goggins and all the athletes are inspiring. With that said, the podcast has become political and I didn’t subscribe to hear politics. There’s enough of that elsewhere. Mass generalizations and judgments turned me off. Officially unsubscribed.
I love the way your podcast has pivoted. You're obviously still following your higher self. I think about Julie teaching you that years and years ago. :)
Thought provoking and fulfilling
Although every episode isn’t necessarily for me, there is a tremendous amount of fulfilling content in this podcast. The episodes I do connect with really seem to get me thinking in ways I might not have otherwise. Rich’s book, Finding Ultra, is really good as well and was instrumental in my recovery from alcohol addiction.
Way too Political
Going to have to unsubscribe with one more political interview- the division of the country comes from your unsubstantiated opinions on your platform.
It’s hard to escape the constant chiding from political sides. I used to love this show. It still has wonderful moments but, it’s getting more political.
Your authenticity and vulnerability in the conversations you have are what make this so great. Thank you for all the work that goes into this!
Dear Rich, Julie and crew, You have deeply touched my life and the lives of so many of my patients. I am living a more peaceful, awake and impactful life (still a work in progress) because of the insights I have gained listening (and running) to your podcast. I routinely prescribe episodes of your podcast for my patients! With gratitude, Samantha Siegel, MD
Rich Roll saved my life. From being active to veganism to Guru Singh, Rich never fails to motivate and inspire in the most eloquent ways possible. The influence this podcast has had on my life could never be put into words. Peace and Plants
Easily my favorite podcast. Listening to rich and his guests are my therapy sessions every week. This podcast keeps me thinking, keeps me listening and keeps me doing.
Rich’s pivot to standing for nothing is now complete
In Episode 553, a listener asked a question about alcohol. Rich has no qualifications to answer these questions other than his personal story. He should make this clear at the outset, so the listener doesn’t get the idea he’s some sort of coach, advisor, etc. In fact it’s dangerous to listeners that Rich answers these types of questions. Instead, Rich gladly answers questions that are best directed to trained professionals. Rich chided the same listener for perhaps having alcohol abuse problems, while being in health
I’m always left feeling motivated and inspired. I highly recommend for anyone who wants to feel uplifted! Rich Roll interviews so many great minds and his questions and dialogue is poignant and full of purpose and intention.
Back & Forth
There’s many episodes on this podcast that I have gotten extreme value from. However when it starts to get political I can no longer listen! The athlete stories are my favorite!
I really like listening to Julia, she’s so knowledgeable and has me thinking 🤔
Loved #550 with Michael Gervais..I loved how honest Rich is about what’s going on in the world. He walks a great line without being too preachy. I love what he shared about his daughters. I can totally relate with my own. But what cracks me up every time...at the end of his podcast.. he whispers... ” Peace and Plants”....if he weren’t such a genuinely great guy, you might think it’s creepy.
It Use to be great, too political now
Rich Roll was a huge inspiration to me. After reading his book I started training for a marathon and adopted a vegan lifestyle. I looked forward to his podcasts, but since covid/protests/2020 election season it’s just not the same anymore. I don’t listen to his podcasts for that. It seems that he can’t get away from injecting political speech into every podcast now, whatever the subject. So sadly, I unsubscribed. Maybe one day the Rich Roll podcast will return to what it use to be.
A Mind opening podcast..
I started listening a 2 years back by accident, when I decided I wanted only to put positive content into my life while I was trying to change my lifestyle. Not being your typical demographic. Being a 55 year old Long Island house wife, just staring a walk/jog program to avoid medication from my Dr.. Your podcast is motivating and mind opening at the same time. You have introduced me to so many deep thinkers and Ideas that would of never crossed my path. I spread the good news I hear on your podcasts to everyone I know. Your take what you need and leave the rest approach makes the podcast very relatable and human. The highlight of my day is my hour out in nature listening the podcast. Keep doing what you are doing it is changing lives. Thank You.
Love the show but you did ask
Several months ago you woke up to the fact that women are excluded. Today you mention LeBron James, Matthew McConnaughy, and Ethan Hawke. No women. I see a Erin Brockovich is a guest but in general you don’t plug women's work. Why may that be? There aren’t any worthwhile podcasts by women maybe? There aren’t any women working to get the vote out? And of course there is Oprah in the self help arena but she’s frequently ridiculed (not on your show of course). I love your show...I’m just sayin.
Getting a little bit fringe
I’ve listened to Rich since he began this podcast. I read Finding Ultra twice. Lately he’s been allowing some questionable sponsors (mushroom coffee)? endorsing “superfoods” and not sticking to the objective science. I still listen but RRP its not core media for me they way it was a few years ago. Not giving up, maybe he’ll get back on the path.

Barefoot running, but not!
To be honest loving the “ROLL ON” more than regular show, and I’ve listened since first episode in Hawaii, but tapered off. As far as minimalist running, you tried it already ( mentioned in Finding Ultra) but I felt you we not patient en to have an effect. DONT run in five fingers, they limit your toes movement. That was the mistake I did back in 2011. Run in sandals, try; Luna sandals, that’s all I run in on trails, even in your area, Malibu Creek State park. They give the freedom of toe movement. I’m 55 and have been doing this now for about 10 years and will never go back to shoes. I never even herd of that dude you mentioned running barefoot, only because this has been going on for a long time, nothing new, just not payed attention to since maximist shoes started trending. Good luck and be patient.
MY FAVORITE PODCAST
Rich Roll brings thoughtful knowledge to the forefront ever so eloquently. He has amazing guests and inspiring content. I Can not say enough good things about the podcast.
I haven’t seen it but Rich Roll sounds like Rock Roll
bobs auto shop
I have listened to most of 3 episodes and found lots of talking that was articulate but went no where and added no value to my life. It was more like eavesdropping of the host’s life. While he is well spoken & thoughtful, I feel it focused on the guest & host but not on content that would help someone shape views, connect dots, or facilitate real change. Just relatable chatter. I prefer to learn something but this podcast might be a good fit for someone just looking for intelligent company.
Dr Andrew Huberman
Thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. Towards the end you two discussed the youngsters coming up. I think both of you should design a social/well-being program for charter schools. How to begin each morning; how to end each day; the importance of song/ singing; teach the importance of correct breathing, etc. Charter schools have more freedom to develop and pursue broader mission plans.
The Perfect Podcast Exists
Rich Roll is an incredible human. He lives his word. And his intelligence and passion for critical thinking and improving quality of life for anyone and everyone is only matched by his phenomenal guests and their enlightening, entertaining, fascinating conversations. This show has enriched my life in every way, mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I’m so grateful for Rich Roll and the Rich Roll Podcast!
The Rich Roll podcast is fantastic! 🌼
