Today I welcome one of my favorite humans to the Eat Play Crush Podcast, Tim Ferriss.

You probably know him as the author of the NYT Best Seller, The 4-Hour Work Week, a book that has changed the lives of millions of people around the world.

He also authored The 4-Hour Body, The 4-Hour Chef, and The Tools of Titans. If that isn't enough he is also the host of a top podcast called "The Tim Ferriss Show," where he interviews a wide range of influential individuals from different fields, exploring their strategies for success and personal growth.

Tim and I go back in time to 2012 as we talk about ways he and I have evolved personally as well as professionally over the last decade. We revisit stories from when Tim caught me talking to the Caribou I was preparing for the first time for his dinner party to topics ranging from his thoughts on leaving a legacy, mental health, the importance of celebrations, poetry, and a few more unique gems I’ll leave you to hear in the episode.

Performance Spotlight aka Free Game: Stick around for this segment, today's highlight is Black Cumin Seed Oil aka Nigella Sativa.
