Tucker Max: THE SEQUEL.  Once we stopped ranting on "Gastliting" and "insanity", we finally went into our favorite topic: WRITING and Self-Publishing! Tucker helped me brainstorm ideas for my bestselling book, "Choose Yourself" and he is a founder of Scribe Media, a unique publishing company that has helped writers from Tiffany Haddish to David Goggins and more write their books. We looked into different genres of books, and why memoirs are the easiest, and often the most successful.  “No one reads your book to learn about you, they read your book to learn about themselves. But the way they learn about themselves is through your honest and vulnerable expressions of your emotions and experience.”  – Tucker Max I write about all my podcasts!

Maria Konnikova is a psychologist who studied her way into becoming a poker champion. She told me all the steps. And how this made her think better and more strategically about everything in life. She studied from scratch with one of the greatest poker players in history. Then she wrote a book about the experience, “The Biggest Bluff: How I Learned to Pay Attention, Master Myself, and Win." But the book isn't just about poker. It's about chance, decision-making, measuring the likelihood of certain outcomes, cutting your losses, and more.  And the game even taught her how to ask (and answer) some of life's big questions: "How do we figure out what we can control? How do we figure out what we can’t control? How do we learn the difference?" Here's a list of topics we cover: How to find the right mentor in life How to get good at decision-making How to master the skill of learning How to leverage what you already know Why it's more important to be curious than certain (and how to practice this daily) The importance of removing your ego  How to always be one step ahead and think through outcomes And more.  I write about all my podcasts!

Is the U.S. really a democracy? How does voting actually work? And who came up with these rules? I want to know who the f*** the electoral college is, why do they exist, and what democracy really looks like. And how to get there. So I called up David Litt, former speechwriter for Obama, among others. He says, “We have an electoral college for a number of reasons. And they’re all bad.” So you’ll learn about that. You’ll learn why the U.S. government technically isn’t really a democracy. And here’s a longer list of lessons: Which parts of the country get overlooked in voting Why swing states have the most power How much say we “the people” really have in voting The difference between the popular vote and electoral college How much power the electoral college really has The math behind WHY the electoral college currently favors Trump How race plays a role in our current democracy  Why the number of swing states has decreases  The history of states becoming “red” or “blue” How to find out if your state “matters” in the election How property rights impact voting How slavery impacts voting today And more I write about all my podcasts!

Everyone is trying to predict the markets, the economy, consumer behavior, etc. But what does the data say? I called up Phillip Stutts to find out. He just released a brand new report that reveals consumer behavior throughout the pandemic. It tells you exactly what to expect as the U.S reopens, how we'll spend money, what we'll care about, etc. The report is fueled by real data and current research (available at winbigmedia.com). In this episode, Phill and I talk about the report plus: Consumer behavoir / How people spend money during lockdown vs. what will change post-lockdown in the long and short term Why males care less now about helping others Protests and being unheard Why safety is becoming center in consumer marketing (and how businesses can do this successfully) How commercial real estate is going to change COVID19 vaccines Why I’m not afraid to fly How to measure the lifetime value of a customer Google trends Whether or not higher education is dead The election and who to bet on (and how to bet on it!)

Eric Adams is the Brooklyn Borough President. He's also running for mayor. You probably remember the last time he came on. And talked about why he became a police officer... and how being physically beaten by the police inspired him to make change. Now, he's back on to explain the streams of the protests.

Spike Cohen is the first anarchist AND the first millennial on the ticket for the upcoming 2020 election. He’s the Vice President Elect for the libertarian party (the third largest political party in the U.S.). He has a lot of compelling arguments about the federal reserve, inflation, freedom, centralized government versus decentralized government, etc. And you might be wondering, ‘Why does anyone run as a third party? What’s the point?’ I asked him this, too. But here’s the real reason to listen to this episode: you get to challenge the conventional ideas of politics. I’d like to hear what you think.

Blake Mycoskie is the founder of TOMS shoes, known for its "buy a pair, give a pair" model. But when Blake started he knew nothing about shoes. Or building a company. “It was just a project,” he said. And yet it became a massively successful and has donated tens of millions of shoes to people in need. I asked Blake how he got the courage to start a company he knew nothing about. I also asked him about the business model, selling the company and building his new company, MadeFor, which is new wellness company that helps you learn how to have agency over your own health.  Here's a list of all the things we talk about: The origin story of TOMS, their business model and how they took off  How to develop a company that gives back How to find a cause you want to help Blake's new company, MadeFor and how to have agency over your health (and what to focus on) Healthy habits you can develop NOW Hallucinogenics Blake's advice for building a business during and after the pandemic And if you go to getmadefor.com and type in MFJAMESALTUCHER then you get 20% off.  I write about all my podcasts!

People say not reading the news = being “uninformed.” I disagree. I read books (history books, biology books, evolutionary books, economics books, etc.). But now, we live in a new world. And yesterday's information can become outdated tomorrow. So that begs the question, how do you stay informed?

The world economy is full of uncertainties. People are furloughed. Or scared of being furloughed. Or fired. Or scared of losing their job. Security isn’t real right now. So we need other plans. I called up Matthew Berry, the first-ever Fantasy Sports analyst. Matthew basically invented a new industry and career entirely back in 2005. I wanted to learn the step-by-step process of starting over in uncertain times. And how we can apply these lessons today. I don't know anything about sports (real or fake). But if you're a fan of Fantasy Football, then good news for you. You can watch Matthew Berry on "The Fantasy Show" on EPSN+. You can listen to him on the Fantasy Focus Football podcast and download the Fantasy Life app, which is 100% free and Matt says their alerts are the best in the business.  I write about all my podcasts!

Facts are only facts for a period of time. This is true in science, in history, in economics, everywhere. But sometimes we forget that information changes. We get stuck thinking it’s stagnant. And then WE become stagnant. But if you can look at facts and information from an alternate perspective (through the lens of a rocket science), you’ll know how to get unstuck, persuade better, deal with uncertainty, have creative breakthroughs and more. In this episode you’ll learn how Einstein (and other geniuses) learned to think differently). And why this will help you deal with the current fluctuation of facts and information. Ozan Varol is a trained rocket scientist and the author of "Think Like a Rocket Scientist: Simple Strategies You Can Use to Make Giant Leaps in Work and Life."   In this episode we talk about: How Einstein learned to think differently How to deal with unclear information and uncertain times Where scientific (and creative) breakthroughs come from (and strategies to have them more often yourself) How to embrace the unknown  What makes an idea groundbreaking How to imagine beyond society's limits and create something new How to re-imagine the status quo I write about all my podcasts!

Business is changing. And so is investing. Risk is higher these days. And people want predictions. But no one really knows. You can’t predict something that’s never happened before... You can only look at what’s possible. So I called up Sam Parr. He founded The Hustle, an 8-figure company that started with an email. And NOW The Hustle has a new arm, which I'm really excited about: trends.co which tells you HOW trends are changing in real-time. It's run by a team of analysts and entrepreneurs who scour global markets for opportunities to help you make money and build businesses successfully.  Definitely check them out.

So I called him up to hear the plan. How will the U.S. government reopen to economy? And what should aspiring entrepreneurs do now?

Everyone says, “Flatten the curve.” But there are two curves. We all know the main one: the spread of coronavirus. The other curve is the spread of psychological viruses; fear, anxiety, worry and panic. We’re all experiencing Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. We started out attacking each other for basic items like toilet paper, then we moved on to connection (Zoom calls and FaceTime), but how do we get to the top of the pyramid (i.e. self-actualization)? I called up Scott Barry Kaufman, a humanistic psychologist and author of “Transcend: The New Science of Self-Actualization.” And he had a lot of practical advice. One of his tips: We don’t have to worry about finding our one true purpose. We just need to find a purpose right now and pursue it.

Meaning that what used to seem like a “potential” truth (like robots stocking shelves, factories being automated, remote work, and so on) is all here faster than we had thought. So I brought on Kevin Surface to talk about these previous “future” predictions and show how they’re happening now. AND we talk about what else we can foresee in a post coronavirus world.  Kevin’s been on the podcast before. He’s an expert in A.I. He’s built and sold AI companies and runs one right now. And he wrote this excellent article, “Our Post-COVID World ,” which you can read here https://medium.com/@kevinsurace/our-post-covid-world-ec3a30dc30b9 I write about all my podcasts!

I don’t want to regret how I spend this time. But I also don’t want to pressure myself to reinvent or write a book or create a business. I want to find the medium ground. How can I give to people who are struggling? Stay safe? And not get lost in fear? One way is to tackle the myths. Myths = fear and stupididity. So I sat down with my wife, Robyn, to talk about 13 coronavirus myths (ranging from unemployment rates, death rates, the future of work, etc.). We talk about how these 13 myths are impacting our behaviors. And what we can do differently to get enough rest, calm our minds and help take care of each other.  I write about all my podcasts!

We're in lockdown. And we don't know how long it'll last. And we don't know what will come next. Mini lockdowns? Personal lockdowns? More social distancing? We don't know. So I wanted to put together a framework for how I should act during this lockdown... So I ask Jim Kwik, a brain coach with praise from Will Smith, Alex Rodriguez, Stan Lee, Quincy Jones, Maria Shriver and so many more. He also has a new book coming out soon that outlines these lessons. And more called, "Limitless: Upgrade Your Brain, Learn Anything Faster, and Unlock Your Exceptional Life" I write about all my podcasts!

Dr. Andrew Huberman is one of the world's leading neuroscientists. He understands what causes anxiety, depression, stress, joy, freedom, love... And what we can do every day to reduce the chemical reactions that hurt us. And create more of the brain chemicals that help us. And you can trust his experience. Because his experience includes teaching Navy SEALs tools to manage chronic high-stress environments. And to make it all even more relevant, he explains the effects of isolation and social distancing AND how to start counteracting negative side effects to keep yourself in good spirits. And out of depression. Everyday.

We all want to know what the future looks like. "What's the new normal?" I asked Professor Scott Galloway, who's insights and research have been known to prove markets and trends for years. He said, "I would argue that this doesn't change any trends. It just accelerates them." So we talked about the changes happening NOW. And how they'll evolve over time.

Other than eating and breathing, persuasion is the most important skill you could have. Because a pre-skill to persuasion is the ability to understand yourself and other enough to create a chain reaction of changes in life. Persuasion is what sets us up to have agency in the world. And there's a specific, 5-step framework that lets you understand how to be more persuasive in your everyday life. So I’m having Jonah Berger on the show. He’s a professor at Wharton, a bestselling author and now he has a new book, “The Catalyst: How to Change Anyone's Mind."  I write about all my podcasts!

Dan Carlin hosts the #1 history podcast, “Hardcore History.” It has a cult following. For a lot of reasons: 1. Dan has an incredible voice. 2. his research is so weird and extensive and detailed. And 3. Dan is known for breaking rules. He went around the standard path. And decided that he didn’t need to have a history degree or some pre-approved "credentials" to create the best history show out there. He just went ahead and did it. So I have him on today to find out how he gave himself permission to do what he loves. Despite all the reasons not to... So that we can give ourselves that same permission and start to do what we love.

People are starting to lose jobs. And gigs. And become uncertain. Uncertainty brings up fear. Which is a pandemic on its own. I keep saying, "Prepare. Don't Panic." And so do my guests. So today, I interview economist Tyler Cowen. I ask him about the stimulus package, the job market, inflation, deflation, supply and demand, what the world will look like if people keep losing work. How we can get back to work. When is it safe? Flattening the curve, and more.  And if you like this update, please let us know. So we can keep bringing you information that spreads peace. Over fear.

We could all use kindness all the time. But we need it now more than ever. I asked Lewis Howes for his advice. But we recorded this a few weeks back. Before the world's pandemic.

Medicine is changing everyday. We're all seeing this unfold right now. In front of our eyes. Some of the changes seems unreal. So I called up the expert of genetic engineering, Jamie Metlz to tell us what’s a reality and what’s science fiction. I wanted to learn what immunities we can develop? How is the current pandemic reshaping the future of medicine? And beyond that we talk about our global responsibility to reshape society. A lot of people are going to lose their jobs. And a lot of people already have. So how do you find your way in this new world? What can we do to land on our feet when the dust settles?  I asked Jamie because he wasn't always a tech futurist or genomics expert. He started out as a writer. And switched careers because interest led him there. We have the opportunity to chase our interests now in a new way.  Also, I’ve been getting great feedback on how these episodes around the coronavirus are helping people make sense in a really confusing time.

How do we know when something is wrong with us? I want to understand the testing process we have for COVID19. I want to understand "symptomatic" cases vs. "asymptomatic" cases. And who's data should we trust? So I called David Sinclair. He runs The Sinclair Lab at Harvard Medical School and is the New York Bestselling author of “Lifespan: Why We Age―and Why We Don't Have To.” I also want to know how do I build up my immune systems? What steps can I take RIGHT NOW? And how do I keep this going over time? And what's going on with testing for COVID19? What are the numbers? And why are they off? David breaks this down. And he explains which coronavirus tests are bringing us into the future of science and biology. He'll also help you understand who's at risk (everyone). And how to protect yourself. AND how to protect others. Because we're in this together.  Also, I’ve been getting great feedback on how these episodes around the coronavirus are helping people make sense in a really confusing time.

I saw this line “How about some good news for a change.” It was the first line in an article by Peter Diamandis, Founder & Executive Chairman of XPRIZE. The article is on his website, diamandis.com and I highly recommend checking it out. I emailed him as soon as I saw it. “Come on my podcast.” And he did the next day.

For better or for worse a lot of people are not working right now.  And that’s going to be a serious issue in the economy. So, for anybody listening, I really stress this one thing: focus on making the right investments everyday in YOURSELF. Right now, with all this extra time, we get to learn who we are again. We get to learn new skills online. And offline. We get to be curious about old passions, try new things, get close with our kids or parents or partners, rediscover your family, etc. And if we look hard enough, we'll even find new business opportunities, or ways to help people, or get smarter. And more. So, for this episode, I called up Alex Lieberman, CEO and founder of Morning Brew, which is the only newsletter I read in the morning. I asked him about this excellent list he put together "THE ULTIMATE QUARANTINE GUIDE TO 'WHAT DO I DO NOW?'" You’ll hear what’s on the list. And how to make the most of your time right now. I'd love to hear which suggestions you like the most. And how you choose to spend your time now. Write me on twitter @jaltucher or on Instagram where I'm doing an IG LIVE everyday at 2pm EST while we get through this together.

Everyone beleives their own opinion. Fact based. Or not. We're all (somehow) political "experts." But the truth no one really knows anything. It's all speculation. But you put your opinion to the test if you get skin in the game. Which is possible now thanks to John Phillips who co-founded the site PredictIt.org. I go on there to place bets on everything from how many tweets Trump is going to make on a particular day or around a specific news event to who will win the primary. And who will win the election. The site is great because it lets you see how right you really are. And you can make real wealth if you’re right. It’s not just betting. It’s more like a stock market. You want to buy low. And sell high. So I asked John on the podcast if he’s ever seen people make $50,000 on the site. He didn’t flinch, “Oh yeah. People have quit their jobs.” I want to help people understand what's happening in the world right now. We're all scared. But we don't have to be. Let's get the information. And go from there. I called up John Hopkin's Dr. Marty Makary to get straight information on coronavirus. He answered all my questions (many of which I get from you). So give it a listen. And you'll start to feel (hopefully) more calm and capable.

"Don't believe the numbers you're seeing." This is Dr. Marty Makary's big message. The number of cases and deaths are radically underreported because a) we don't have tests, b) some countries are hiding their data, c) some people aren't showing symptoms yet, but have coronavirus and more.  But listen. This podcast is not about fear. It's about knowledge and awareness and action. Right now, nobody really knows what's happening. Thew news and social media are giving us false predictions off "estimates" that don't even account for the thousands of people who can't get tested for COVID-19. Meanwhile, Amazon is out of toilet paper. People are signing their emails "Don't touch your face! Best, Joe." And I officially own two hazmat suits.  But how do we really "flatten the curve?"  This episode will give you the steps. And I also recorded a recap at the end to give you more of a summary. AND because this is so critical, I have a list of timestamps below. So you can rewind and fast-forward for the stats that you want to share with friends and loved ones the most.  So here you go: to keep on with the trend of providing ACCURATE information from reputable people, I called up, Dr. Marty Makary, a John's Hopkins doctor and policy expert who also wrote the New York Times bestseller "Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won't Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Health Care" and "The Price We Pay: What Broke American Health Care--and How to Fix It."   6:50 GOOD NEWS: we can anticipate we’ll be clear in the summer. And more good news (for young people), you’re at less risk 7:00 - But who’s at risk? Let’s hear stats from Dr. Marty 9:34 - Which countries have given honest data. And which haven’t 10:58 - “Are we ready to see over a thousand Americans each day?” - Dr. Marty Makary 11:26 - Do we need a total lockdown?  12:18 - WHY there’s a major misconception around the actual number of cases and deaths around COVID-19 in the U.S. 15:13 - “The notion that this is somehow contained is a notion we need to abandon. This is everywhere.” - Dr. Marty Makary 18:06 - Is China lying about the number of deaths? 21:30 - HOW to get an accurate estimate based on REAL data everyday 24:13 - THESE behavior changes will reduce the societal transmission rate by 50% 25:25 - I ask Dr. Marty Makary about the data from the cruise ships and why only 27% of the people on board got coronavirus… and he explains why the data from the cruise ship is “the perfect case study”  29:35 - We talk about school shutdowns and travel bans 30:18 - “We need to break society down into two constructs: (1) essential and nonessential workers. And (2) high risk and low risk individuals.” - Dr. Marty Markary /  Hear Dr. M break down both of these ideas to figure out what categories you’re in 31:50 - We explore The Hong Kong flu, which killed between 1.5 to 3 million people globally in 1968. And other global pandemics to compare the numbers… Dr. M says this “could be roughly 5-10x worse…” and explains why. 35 - We talk about the death rate for the flu 37:20 - Why there are no cures or medicines that slow down the virus 40:30 - Stay active. But don’t go to the gym 42:20 - Where the media has gone wrong… and what the responsibility is for doctors in connection with the media 48:30 - We talk about the food supply chain 50 - How Americans are taking care of each other 52:40 - The math on how to estimate the potential death rate in the U.S. 54:40 - Why it’s good to practice social distancing 56:00 - Will this come back in the winter? 59:17 - Will there be a second round of infection? Is it possible to become immune to COVID-19? And can the virus mutate? 1:02:50 - “This is a time for us to take care of each other, forget about these artificial, political boundaries and see the best in people.” - Dr. Marty Makary  1:50:20 - Why we need to stop relying on government leaders. And start taking care of ourselves 1:09:00 - What’s the long-term benefit of a lockdown? 1:11:00 - “Don’t panic. Prepare. We don’t want to create hysteria. There’s a lot you can do individually and this is one of the only things in healthcare ever, where what you do affects the rest of the country.” - Dr. Marty Makary 1:12:21 - Follow Marty on Twitter @MartyMakary 1:13:11 - I summarize what we heard and learned in the past hour Also!

The macro formula for building a business with meaning looks like this: real relationships + belief + combining experiences +  fixing a problem + adaptability + (I could keep going). But these are just words. Bill Glaser, founder of Outstanding Foods and my new favorite vegan snack (piglets pork rinds) has stories. He’ll tell us how convinced a handful of strategic investors to say “yes” all at once, partnered with Snoop Dogg, found a hole in the market and turned it into an opportunity & more.  Guest quote: “Belief doesn’t mean having tunnel vision.

I'm not political. But I'm interested in studying human behavior, history, marketing, what drives decision making, the power of money, perception, persuasion... that's what an election is. It's a soup. So I brought Phillip Stutts back on the show to dissect what's going to define the 2020 election.
