359: Justin Ramsdell | How to Detect and Disarm Pseudoscience

Justin Ramsdell is a clinical psychologist, an expert witness, an assistant professor of forensic psychology at George Mason University, and a veteran pseudoscience detector. What We Discuss with Justin Ramsdell: Why stressed brains don't make great decisions (especially when there's no light visible at the end of the tunnel to indicate that there is an end). How pseudoscience preys on our cognitive biases to give us the answers we want with the scantest of unprovable "evidence." Why watching YouTube videos and ranting in Reddit threads doesn't count as "research" in the same way that work done by field-experienced scientists with doctorate degrees and peer-reviewed studies under their belts counts as research. Be wary of intellectual trespassers -- who might very well be field-experienced scientists with doctorate degrees and peer-reviewed studies under their belts, but make wild, pseudoscientific claims about areas outside their expertise (e.g., a chiropractor who claims to cure COVID-19 with massage). Why you don't have to be a field-experienced scientist with a doctorate degree and peer-reviewed studies under your belt to avoid being hoodwinked by pseudoscience charlatans. And much more...

358: Is My Friend Blowing Her IVF Money on Gifts? | Feedback Friday

Your friend wants to be a mother more than anything, but says she and her husband can’t afford the IVF it would take to make this possible. On the other hand, she habitually buys expensive gifts for everyone in your social circle. Is there any socially acceptable way for you to have a conversation with her about priorities? We’ll tackle this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn’t already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let’s dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/358. On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Is your friend — who says she wants to be a mother more than anything — blowing the money she could be using for IVF on expensive gifts for everyone else? And if so, is there any socially acceptable way for you to have a discussion with her about it? You were on the path to a job in a new field until the pandemic hit, and now you’re finding it hard to land interviews without past experience on your resume. Should you go back to your old field in the meantime until things go more or less back to normal? There’s a gap on your resume where you took a year off of college to go to drug and alcohol rehab. Is there a way to spin this positively? While you’ve sought therapy to mitigate the effects of your father’s abuse as a child, your BPD-diagnosed sister hasn’t — and it causes her to act out in ways that are dangerous to herself and others. How can you best help her? How do you decide when it’s worth pushing through something (like learning a new language), or quitting because it causes anxiety and isn’t pleasant to endure at the time? Life Pro Tip: If a bee colony has set up a hive that you need removed, don’t call the exterminator. Google local beekeepers, who will relocate the hive often for free. This is an easy way to be nice to the bees and to your wallet! Recommendation of the Week: Spaceship Earth A quick shout out to @thatphysioguy for making use of Six-Minute Networking to get his business through this pandemic!

357: Robin Dreeke | Sizing People Up

Robin Dreeke (@rdreeke) is the retired head of The FBI Behavioral Analysis Program and co-author of Sizing People Up: A Veteran FBI Agent's User Manual for Behavior Prediction and The Code of Trust: An American Counterintelligence Expert's Five Rules to Lead and Succeed. What We Discuss with Robin Dreeke: People can be relied on to act in their own best interest (from their perspective, not yours). Just because you like somebody for any number of commonalities doesn't necessarily mean you can (or should) trust them. Why it creeps us out when people try too hard to get us to like them (and how we can avoid creeping out others when establishing rapport). Four principles that allow you to make any conversation about the other person -- and therefore more aligned with their best interest. How and why professionals who should understand the basics of rapport-building consistently fail (and how they can correct course). And much more...

356: How to Make the Most of Quarantine | Deep Dive

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive exploring the ups and downs of COVID-19 pandemic life and how to make the most of quarantine to emerge better, not beaten, from the experience. [Featured photo by Kari Shea] What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi: While you may not be able to control how long the pandemic lasts, you can control your response to it — is there opportunity nestled in the setback? How to use this downtime to strengthen relationships and build skills so you can springboard into action when things regain a semblance of normality. From which everyday nuisances are you spared while quarantining? For which often overlooked boons should you be grateful now? How to work efficiently and effectively from home even if you’ve always relied on the benevolent micromanagement skills of your resident office busybody. How you and your kids could benefit from using this time to learn new skills together — like a new language you can bond over long after the pandemic passes.

355: My Roommate Tried to Kill Me! | Feedback Friday

Your unstable roommate physically attacked you over an argument about laundry, and then she filed a protection from abuse order against you! Now even your family doesn't seem to believe your side of things, and abuse hotlines seem to dismiss you immediately because of your Y chromosome. Even though you're in debt, should you get a lawyer to defend you in case she tries to extort you through the legal system? We'll tackle this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, we banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/355. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: After seven-and-a-half years, we're losing a J! :( When an unstable roommate tries to kill you and then convinces your family and friends and the legal system that you tried to kill her, is it time to get a lawyer even on your tight budget? [Thanks to Corbin Payne for weighing in!] You're self-conscious about being Asian American during this pandemic, and your sister is even getting racist verbal abuse hurled at her in high school. What is the right attitude and perspective for you both to carry during this trying time? What's the least awkward way to respond when someone self-deprecates themself in comparison to you? You were recently selected for a diplomatic job in the Balkans with the Army, and despite your aversion to firearms, you'll be required to carry one. How do you mentally prepare for this compromise of your pacifist ideals? You're one semester from college graduation, but nobody in your family knows your GPA is disappointingly low. To top it off, your three younger siblings are set for Ivy League schools and you feel like an unemployable fraud in comparison. How can you improve your outlook?

354: ZDoggMD | Debunking Plandemic COVID-19 Pseudoscience

ZDoggMD (@ZDoggMD) [aka Zubin Damania] is a physician, assistant professor, comedian, Internet personality, musician, founder of Turntable Health, and host of The ZDoggMD Show. What We Discuss with ZDoggMD: No, COVID-19 wasn't cooked up in a lab somewhere to wreak havoc on the world's populace at the behest of elite politicians and scientists. No, COVID-19 is not "activated" by wearing face masks designed to protect you and others from the spread of pathogens. No, Dr. Anthony Fauci wasn't responsible for destroying Judy Mikovits' career and covering up her (discredited) contributions to medical science. No, Italian vaccines aren't to blame for causing COVID-19 symptoms in otherwise healthy people. No, Jordan Harbinger and Dr. Zubin Damania are not shills for the Illuminati. And much more...

353: Jordan Harbinger | A Darknet Diaries Origin Story

Jordan shares the seedier side of his origin story -- from hacking phones and buying pizza with fake credit card numbers to catching online predators and understanding the fundamentals of social engineering -- with Jack Rhysider (@JackRhysider) of Darknet Diaries. [Featured art by habblesthecat] What Jordan and Jack Discuss: What Jordan learned about the mysterious workings of the adult mind when he hacked into telephone calls as a youngster. How the allure of easy fraud through technology put Jordan on the FBI's radar -- when he was still in middle school. How Jordan traded his ability to build a private security company's website for hardcore martial arts training. What Jordan did to help the FBI catch pedophiles online at a time when cybercrime wasn't yet taken seriously. The third-path advice from Jordan's law firm mentor that changed the way he looked at work forever. And much more...

352: My Spouse Controls My Online Life! | Feedback Friday

Out of work since late last year, you were finally making progress on the job hunt until COVID-19 locked everything down. Now you've been making connections and finding opportunities on LinkedIn that seem promising. The problem is, your spouse is nervous that anything you post there will somehow hurt your chances for getting a job; it seems her resentment that you're not working -- added to the constant proximity of quarantining responsibly -- puts the world through a very negative lens and anything you say is stupid. So now she's monitoring your LinkedIn account from hers and picking fights with you every time you post anything there. Should you find another place to live for now while pursuing work, or should you just let your spouse control your online life and make that pursuit more difficult? We tackle this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/352. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: How do you know if the work from home/side hustle guru you're following on Instagram is a scam artist or the real deal? Sadly, your spouse is simultaneously resentful that you don't have a job and embarrassed that you post to LinkedIn looking for one -- and it causes fights that last for days. Should you find your own space for a while or let them control your online life? Your significant other passed away in front of you at home, and now you're dealing with PTSD on top of grief in the very place where it happened. What can you do to move forward? With the biological clock ticking, are you selfish or stupid to try for a child in the middle of a pandemic? Laura Gassner Otting recommended cutting off toxic people in your life who don't support or "cheerlead" for you. Sadly, you've never been the cheerleading type -- should you worry that you've been a toxic person all along without knowing? You're a South Indian with a supposedly hard-to-pronounce name. You don't mind people mispronouncing it (because the effort is respectful), but you do mind the "cutesy" nicknames foisted upon you by people you barely know. How can you get people to take you seriously enough to use your actual name? When the family relies on you so much, how can you find the time to get a place of your own and become independent for the first time in your young life? Life Pro Tip: Buy domains for your name, your kids' names, and the names of any businesses or anything you own (for a discount at our sponsor hover.com/jordan).

351: General Martin Dempsey | No Time For Spectators

General Martin Dempsey (@Martin_Dempsey) is a retired Army general who served as the 18th chairman of the Joint Chiefs for four years during the Obama administration, and the author of No Time for Spectators: The Lessons That Mattered Most from West Point to The West Wing. What We Discuss with General Martin Dempsey: Why learning how to follow is as much of a skill as leadership. That character is built over time based on a series of small decisions that we make during the uncertain moments when things don't go our way. How someone who wanted to grow up and become a Supreme Court Justice detoured into a 45-year career in the military. How an assignment that seemed like a career-ending punishment led General Dempsey to take on his most purposeful, important role. How to be a trusted advisor -- whether it's to a CEO or the President. And much more...

350: Dan Heath | Solving Problems from Upstream

Dan Heath is a Senior Fellow at Duke University's CASE center, which supports entrepreneurs who are fighting for social good. He is the co-author of four New York Times bestsellers, and his latest book is Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen. What We Discuss with Dan Heath: How many problems in our lives and in society are we tolerating simply because we’ve forgotten that we can fix them? Why are we more often stuck in a cycle of response downstream of problems rather than upstream where we might prevent them from happening in the first place? What lessons can we learn about upstream versus downstream thinking by examining our current pandemic crisis? What the federal response to Hurricane Katrina tells us about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure. Upstream versus downstream thinking regarding the healthcare debate in the US.

349: How to Pick Your Battles Without Being a Doormat | Feedback Friday

You've never thought of yourself as a doormat, but you've just found it easier to meet people halfway and go with the flow rather than waste your energy on something stupid or trivial. So how do you pick your battles -- especially while everyone who's been following the advice of medical professionals to stay home during the pandemic is feeling a little cooped up and abrasive right now? We'll tackle this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/349. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: How do you choose your battles and resolve conflict without being a doormat -- especially while everyone's a bit on edge during this long, long pandemic? You feel you should have strong stances on certain issues, but you don't want your bias to stop you from weighing the evidence that informs those stances. Is it wrong to not take a stand on issues because you honestly don't have all the information? Your friend married an African man with old-world views of gender roles, so she works full time and maintains the house because he won't help with "women's" work. Quarantine has almost broken her. How can she get him to stop thinking in the 19th century and join her in the 21st? You're an introvert about to move to an unfamiliar city to take up an exciting, challenging new job with a bigger paycheck. What are the most important things to keep in mind during this hard reset? You're a jack of all trades with no clear idea of what to do with your life, and you tend to get bored after doing one thing for a while. What might you do to focus and choose a path that will keep you occupied over the long haul? Your job hunt lost momentum as the reaction to COVID-19 started gearing up. You know this pandemic will pass, but what should you do to find the gainful employment you want after this is over? Life Pro Tip: When you have to go out and press elevator buttons and other switches, use a lighter -- then light the lighter to disinfect itself. No need to waste tissues or gloves!

348: Thomas Kostigen | Hacking Planet Earth

Thomas Kostigen (@kostigen) is a New York Times bestselling author and journalist. His latest book is Hacking Planet Earth: How Geoengineering Can Help Us Reimagine the Future. What We Discuss with Thomas Kostigen: What is geoengineering, how is it being used today, and what forms will it take with rapidly developing technology? Why those who stand to be the first victims of climate disenfranchisement certainly won't be the last. How soon we need to act, and to what degree, if we want to avoid the worst effects of climate change. How we can use geoengineering to catalyze a solutions-based society that will reduce and eliminate these effects. In what ways have we geoengineered the world in the past, and what does this tell us about the transformative power of industry and the role Thomas believes it should play in current and future geoengineering efforts?

Brian Keating (@DrBrianKeating) is a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of California San Diego, host of the Into the Impossible podcast, and the author of Losing the Nobel Prize: A Story of Cosmology, Ambition, and the Perils of Science’s Highest Honor. What We Discuss with Brian Keating: What compelled dynamite inventor Alfred Nobel to annually reward outstanding contributions for humanity, and how would he feel about the way Nobel prizes are awarded today? What is an ethical will, and why should you make sure you have one in place sooner rather than later? How accolades like the Nobel prize and the Academy Awards have taken on outsized importance in their respective fields in spite of being selected arbitrarily by an anointed few — with sometimes deadly consequences. How Brian turned around surface losses like getting fired from an academic dream job and missing his shot at the Nobel prize from disasters into catalysts of great happiness. How you can have a chance at winning a fragment of the 4.3-billion-year-old supernova that created Earth and the hemoglobin in your blood!

346: Did Coronavirus Kill My Relationship? | Feedback Friday

Did your long-term significant other really dump you because they believed you were "faking" the symptoms of COVID-19 coronavirus, or was the lily-livered sidewinder just looking for a convenient excuse to end it?

Did your significant other really dump you because they believed you were "faking" the symptoms of COVID-19 coronavirus, or were they just looking for a convenient excuse to end it? Living in a pricey metropolis with zero job leads until the pandemic blows over, does it make sense to move back to small-town life with the parents to save money for now? (Thanks to Professor Scott Galloway for weighing in on this one!) Your detail-oriented teenager wants to start his own business doing odd jobs. How do you help him get the word out while ensuring he's not getting shorted because of his age? You feel a strong connection to someone who is still reeling from a bumpy past and isn't ready for a relationship right now. If timing is the underlying factor, how much space should you give them before trying again? You're a project manager on paternity leave, and company policy doesn't allow your team to fill you in on what's been going on in your absence or for you to check email until you return. How can you ensure your reintroduction to the workplace goes smoothly? After building up a wide range of experiences for over a decade, you've become decent at a few vastly different skills. Should you combine these skills or just focus on becoming world-class in one? You're in cybersecurity and you've toyed with the idea of doing a PhD in another country for years -- largely because it sounds cool and you like academia. But as a non-necessity in your field, is it worth the hassle? Life Pro Tip: On a Zoom call but not talking? Please mute yourself!

What We Discuss with Jim Kwik: Why it's a L.I.E. that your intelligence is fixed and the person you were at age eight is the same person you are today and the same person you'll be tomorrow. Why genius is not born; it’s built -- and it leaves clues. The limitless model: a three-part framework for not only accelerated learning, but for unlocking human potential.

Jonna Mendez is a former chief of disguise in the CIA's Office of Technical Service, and co-author of The Moscow Rules: The Secret CIA Tactics That Helped America Win the Cold War. What We Discuss with Jonna Mendez: What was it like to work as a heavily surveilled CIA operative in the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War? Why did the United States have to rebuild its embassy in Moscow from the ground up in the early '90s? How aspiring artists like Jonna and her late husband Antonio (played by Ben Affleck in Argo) got involved in working for the CIA. How the CIA recruits brilliant scientific minds to develop cutting-edge solutions when it can only offer a fraction of compensation offered by the private sector. The evolution of how disguise has come to be used in the intelligence community since the '70s, and the role Jonna has taken in its progress. And much more...

What We Discuss with David Epstein: What are the pros and cons of specialization and generalization? Why sacrificing depth for breadth in the learning process might be an advantage. How struggling to generate an answer -- even a wrong one -- enhances subsequent learning. The end of history illusion and the hazards of choosing to specialize between ages 18-29.

Julie Gerberding is the former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and administrator of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). What We Discuss with Julie Gerberding: What makes COVID-19 so uniquely dangerous compared to other diseases and would-be pandemics we've encountered in the past century? Is staying six feet away from other people really safe enough, and will we have to practice social distancing until we get a COVID-19 vaccine? Is the rapid spread of information -- and misinformation -- by way of the Internet more helpful or hurtful to our efforts to contain the spread of the virus? Why did even our most trusted sources -- like the CDC -- initially discourage us from wearing masks and now insist on them for leaving the house? How much does political pressure from a presidential administration affect the job of a CDC director? And much more...

340: What Jobs Will Exist in the New Economy? | Feedback Friday

With big changes afoot thanks to technological advances and the need to adapt in a COVID-19 world, what skills should you consider picking up, and what jobs will exist in the new economy that you can prepare to fill? This and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/340. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: As the world rapidly changes around us, what skills should you consider leveling up, and what jobs will exist in the new economy? How do you network and get to know the team at a new company while remote? Should you still pay off the full balance of your credit card to avoid finance charges, or should you hold on to the cash until the pandemic's over? You love every aspect of your current job, but the perks are low and so is the pay. You know you could get full benefits and make three times more as a plumber. Is the choice as easy to make as it sounds? Life Pro Tip: Worried that your favorite restaurant will be hurt by the slow business due to the coronavirus? Buy a gift card from them now and use it later. It’s like a loan, and there are usually pretty decent savings included to sweeten the deal. Recommendation of the Week: Dirty Money Season 2 A quick shout out to Angela Hodges for using advice she's learned from the show to create a Facebook group page where they're sewing facemasks for healthcare workers in NJ!

337: COVID Clearly Crushing Careers | Feedback Friday

While we're trying to avoid talking directly about the current pandemic, there's no doubt COVID-19 is clearly crushing careers. Gretchen Rubin helps us ensure we can still be productive during this time. Also, Dorie Clark joins us to talk a teenager through coming out as gay a non-supportive environment. We have a lot happening here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/337. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: If you're wondering how to come out as gay when you're 13 and surrounded by non-supportive family and friends who might distance themselves because of their religious beliefs, Dorie Clark's got some wisdom to impart. As a freelancer, how do you get more remote-work contracts instead of onsite offers during the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis? Is your ADHD to blame for taking on more work than you can possibly handle, and does your imposter syndrome make you try too hard, or is there something else at play here? Your recently graduated girlfriend needs to get a job, move out of her parents' house, and become independent to make progress, but she doesn't seem particularly motivated even when there's not a global pandemic to navigate around. How can you be encouraging without nagging? You had a great job interview lined up, and then COVID-19 struck. How can you stay on the radar to have a leg up when things have calmed down and it's time to meet your prospective employer -- without coming off as too needy? How has fatherhood changed Jordan? Have new curiosities developed, and does he wish he could ask past guests different questions now? Your dementia-suffering mother's caregiver seems to be getting double-paid -- once by you and once by your mother. She does good work, but it's bothering you. What's the least awkward way to clear up the matter? Is COVID-19 crushing careers? Clearly. Outer Order, Inner Calm author Gretchen Rubin can help us remain productive during these weird times. Life Pro Tip: If you have an iPhone, you can set defined times when "do not disturb" mode goes on. Then you only get calls from your favorites and when they call you three times consecutively. It also works when you connect to a car for phone calls and prevents you from getting notifications while driving.

334: I Was Supposed to Die Five Years Ago | Feedback Friday

A brain tumor had doctors guessing you should have died five years ago, but hard work and luck have reduced it by 50 percent and arrested its progress. Would it be wishful thinking to start long-term planning and getting your life back on track? We'll tackle this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/334. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: A brain tumor had doctors guessing you should have died five years ago, but hard work and luck have reduced it by 50 percent and arrested its progress. Would it be wishful thinking to start long-term planning and getting your life back on track? How can you encourage someone to make a business out of a hobby they're really good at? More important: should you? In a world where nobody seems to listen for longer than five seconds, how can you politely have a conversation with people in a way that won’t just lead to temporary change? Your side hustle is related to your main job. Is it reasonable to leverage your paid time to work on things that benefit you personally? When your significant other had a traumatic childhood and shares the dark thoughts that haunt them with you, what can you do as a partner to be supportive without turning into a surrogate parent or therapist? You want to be able to work with anyone, but you have a passive-aggressive and prickly coworker who refuses to engage with you. What can you do to defuse the tension and build a proper work relationship? Life Pro Tip: If you are under a mandatory shelter-in-place order and feel the need to leave the house, blood donation is a qualified reason to leave. Not only are you getting out of the house and having some human contact, but you are providing society with a much-needed service. Set up an appointment and fill out the questionnaire beforehand. (Obviously don’t do this if you are feeling ill!) (Anti-)Recommendation of the Week: 100 Humans (It's a fun watch, but filled with junk science and biased politics. Don't go into this expecting anything beyond entertainment and you should be fine.)

332: Rachael Denhollander | What Is a Girl Worth?

Rachael Denhollander (@R_Denhollander) is an attorney, advocate, educator, and author of What Is a Girl Worth?: My Story of Breaking the Silence and Exposing the Truth about Larry Nassar and USA Gymnastics. What We Discuss with Rachael Denhollander: How the culture of competitive gymnastics contributed to the commonplace physical and mental abuse of underage Olympic hopefuls. How Nassar was able to manipulate the trust of parents while simultaneously abusing their children, unseen, just a few feet away using creepy sleight of hand techniques and misdirection like a masterful pedophile illusionist. Why the same set of circumstances that make parents hesitate to believe that such abuse could be going on under their noses is the same set of circumstances that make such abuse possible -- and allows monsters like Nassar to get away with it for decades before their victims dare to speak out. How Nassar was protected by numerous enablers in the organizations for which he worked, and why they may have chosen to take his word over the consistent allegations of countless victims. Why Rachael was able to go public with the abuse that she herself endured from Nassar when others couldn't, and how this encouraged other victims to come forward. And much more...

331: How to Work from Home Effectively | Feedback Friday

Due to the recent COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, many of us are now required to work from home. As a team of people who have been working from home for more than a decade, we have some advice for those wondering how to work from home effectively during a pandemic -- and, of course, lots more on this Feedback Friday!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Since we've been doing it for so long, we've got some pointers for working from home effectively for those of you out there who might be doing it for the first time during this pandemic! Your career is extremely specialized and your choices for moving to another company are slim to none. And frankly, you don’t even want to do it anymore, but you can't afford to take a pay cut to start over. What should you do? Your boss gets annoyed when you stand up and jog in place for five minutes every hour to stay limber after sitting for so long. Is taking such a short break really a demonstration of a lapsed work ethic, or is there more going on here? How should you respond to random people on LinkedIn who reach out to network -- even when you have no friends in common? You don't mind being helpful, but how do you weed out the timewasters? While you do have general social anxiety, you find yourself especially shy and less talkative around your attractive friends. Why is this, and how might you get past it? At a young age, it came out that your two older brothers were sexually abusing your younger sister. They were sent away for years, essentially breaking up your family. Now you're all adults and working on your mental and emotional issues. Where should you start seeking help?

328: How Should I Spend My Inheritance? | Feedback Friday

Instead of freeing you up to find a career you could fall in love with, a windfall you received at your father's passing has instead overwhelmed you with seemingly limitless options. How should you spend your inheritance in a way that would make you happy and your father proud? We'll tackle this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/328. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: How do Jordan and Jen spend money differently now that they have a kid? And when you're buying something with a high price tag, why should you avoid the middle-tier option? Instead of freeing you up to find a career you could fall in love with, a windfall you received at your father's passing has instead overwhelmed you with seemingly limitless options. How should you spend your inheritance in a way that would make you happy and your father proud? How can you find time and energy for self-improvement when you've developed a never-ending headache and fatigue that lasts for decades that doctors can't solve? Should you just be happy to stay where you are so you don't risk worsening your health? Looking toward marketing your invention, you're worried your stutter might get in the way of engaging with your intended audience. What can you do to reduce your stutter and the distraction it is likely to cause? Should you accept the terms of an "influencer" who wants you to do work for them with the nebulous guarantee of "exposure" to their sizeable community, or should you insist on cold, hard cash even if it means you could burn a bridge that might lead to more work down the line? You're having trouble landing a second interview in your job search, and you're wondering if you're unconsciously doing something to sell yourself short or if potential employers are finding unsavory things about you online. What can you do to identify the problem? Does Jordan lack an inner monologue? Recommendation of the Week: Who Killed Malcolm X? A quick shout out to Mani from Leicester!

Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) is the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium, host of StarTalk Radio, and author of New York Times bestseller Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. What We Discuss with Neil deGrasse Tyson: How a seasoned scientist maintains childlike curiosity. The power of science to transcend bias. Why Neil didn't have typical public speaking jitters when he gave his first lecture at age 15. Do you have to be a math wizard to pursue science? What enlightened leadership (from either side of the aisle) understands about the value of science -- and why science denial has surged so dramatically in recent years. And much more...

326: Austin Meyer | Slaying the Patent Scam Trolls

Austin Meyer (@x_plane_austin) is the software developer of flight simulator X-Plane and aircraft sensor fallback Xavion, an entrepreneur fighting against the unjust incursion of patent trolls, and producer of the documentary The Patent Scam. What We Discuss with Austin Meyer: How the patent troll industry shakes down innocent victims through legal loopholes for massive profits. What might put someone unwittingly on the radar of a patent troll. Why virtually anybody can be the target of a patent troll thanks to the way current patent laws are written. What Austin discovered when he tried to confront his own patent trolls personally at their legally registered offices. Why patent trolls are repeatedly able to get away with frivolous lawsuits that any reasonable jury would laugh out of court. And much more...

How can you approach the deal without coming off as insulting? Your monster of a mother-in-law says hurtful things to you about your husband when he leaves the room, and now insists on telling you how you'll be raising the child you're expecting soon. How can you shut down her rude commentary without causing a scene? Your mother recently rejoined a religion that requires cult-like obedience, and her views on medical care are drastically different from yours. Aside from general concern that she's thrown her lot in with a bad crowd, how do you break it to her that you no longer want to have her as your power of attorney? Since the sudden death of a close friend, your husband seems to be extra reliant on you for emotional support to the point that it's stifling your career ambitions. How can you bring up concerns without hurting his feelings and making him think you're trying to abandon him?

324: Tony Hawk | How Did I Get Here?

Tony Hawk (@tonyhawk) is a vertical skateboarding legend who enjoys household name status these days, but as we learn in discussing his book How Did I Get Here?: The Ascent of an Unlikely CEO, the journey’s been far from easy.[Featured photo by J. Grant Brittain via Tony Hawk's Instagram] What We Discuss with Tony Hawk: Why taking risks is important for the sake of progress. How personal success can be gauged independently of financial success. Why your personal brand needs to be genuine and something you’re willing to protect.

Laura Gassner Otting (@heylgo) is a motivational keynote speaker and the author of Limitless: How to Ignore Everybody, Carve your Own Path, and Live Your Best Life. What We Discuss with Laura Gassner Otting: Everyone has a scorecard that defines success, and it's totally limiting you -- even if you don't realize you have one. Why, when you don't define success in your own terms, finding your purpose and carving your own path becomes impossible. How you can learn to ignore the rules that created your limits.

322: Mislead an Employer for a Foot in the Door? | Feedback Friday

You finally landed an interview with a high-end Italian furniture company for a position that falls in line with your career aspirations. You're super qualified except for one thing: the job posting listed "fluent in Italian" as a requirement, and you're definitely not. Should you be up front with them and let them know immediately that you don't speak Italian but say you're willing to learn it, or should you accept the interview and tell them you're not fluent when you meet with them in person? We'll try to find answers to this and more here on Feedback Friday!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Is it ever worth it to mislead a potential employer to get a foot in the door with the intention of making things right later? Your parents had an acrimonious divorce and your mother holds it against you that you still talk to your father. How do you draw the line in communicating with your mom? When it comes to taking classes online, you've become an expert at gaming the system in ways that might be considered cheating. But isn't this just being resourceful? You've disappointed a mentor by taking time out from your studies for self-care. How can you salvage the professional relationship while not putting your mental health at risk? What's it like to bust counterfeiters for fun and profit? Here's a perspective you might enjoy if you dug the recent episode with Kris Buckner. Life Pro Tip: Forget to take your vitamins every day?

321: How to Ask for Advice | Deep Dive

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive exploring how to ask for advice the wrong way, how to ask for advice the right way, and the difference it can make between ignorance and understanding, failure and success. What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi: Are you actually asking for advice, or are you just seeking permission and encouragement to do something that might just be a terrible idea? When you don't get the advice (i.e., validation) you were hoping for, do you somehow hold it against the person you asked? When asking for advice, is your request overly vague, or is it specific, intentional, and explicit in detailing what you need? Are you asking for advice when you don't know where to go, or are you asking for advice when you've gone as far as you can? Asking for advice the right way is half the battle. The other half is being willing to listen to it. And much more...

320: Dennis Carroll | Planning an End to the Pandemic Era

Dennis Carroll is the former USAID director for pandemic influenza and emerging threats. He currently works with The Global Virome Project, an international initiative that seeks to proactively identify, prepare for, and stop viral threats before they become pandemics. What We Discuss with Dennis Carroll: What’s the difference between an epidemic and a pandemic? Why the occurrence of a future flu epidemic is not a matter of if but when. Vaccine hesitancy (e.g., “anti-vax” hysteria) is one of the top 10 health threats in the entire world. What can we expect from — and how do we prepare for — a worst-case pandemic scenario, and how worried should we be about the current coronavirus threat? Why our incursions into wildlife populations expose humanity to greater health risks than ever before.

319: Should We Shut Down Our Business? | Feedback Friday

You were laid off, your wife's business is in the red, and you have a baby on the way. In spite of occasionally inconsiderate guests being a drag, renting your spare room through Airbnb is the only thing bringing in steady money right now. Should you shut down the business that doesn't make money and focus on how you can make Airbnb a more sustainable and tolerable source of income? This and more on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/319. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Should you shut down your business that's in the red to focus on renting your spare room through Airbnb? Given that everyone has limited time and energy, how do you decide what to pursue and what to let go of, and vet opportunities to ensure they're worth the effort? What can you do to help your friend cope with the serious social anxiety that has literally driven her to drink? As a recovering addict, you know following through with the attraction you feel for a fellow recovering addict would be a poorly timed mistake -- right? Is it rude to offer unsolicited feedback on someone's resume when you notice room for improvement -- even when asked to share it with the people in your network? Life Pro Tip: Make a checklist of things you need when traveling and stick it on your closet door (or in your phone's notes app). Every time you realize you forgot to pack something, add it to the list when you get back. It saves you time running around trying to remember what you will need each time you have to pack.

What We Discuss with Christian Picciolini: Why extremist ideology is on the rise all over the world -- and what we can do to stem its spread. What to do when we see other people in our sphere potentially falling victim to extremist recruiting tactics. How personal journeys of identity, community, and purpose are hijacked by extremist recruiters to fill their ranks. How the Internet has made it easier than ever for recruiters to draw young people away from families and communities that have zero ties to extremism. What extremist groups are doing to rebrand and sanitize their image in ways that appeal to the disenfranchised among the mainstream. And much more...

316: How to Get a Job If You're a Sex Offender | Feedback Friday

As a remorseful sex offender who's done your time and been officially cleared as posing no threat to society, you're committed to turning your life around for you, your wife, and your five-year-old. But how can you get a job when you're a convicted felon with the extra stigma of being on the registry for the next 20 years? We'll tackle this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/316. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: How do you get a job if you're a registered sex offender who's done your time and been officially cleared as posing no threat to society? While your significant other wants kids someday, you're undecided. You're young, but you don't want to waste their time. How long do you reasonably have to make the decision? How do you handle a two-faced ladder-climber in your company whose Machiavellian manipulations aren't as invisible as they seem to think they are? What can a high schooler do to network in the field they wish to pursue when it's a bit esoteric -- like biochemistry? A job promotion for more pay and research experience sounds great, but you're worried about losing the downtime that allows you to get homework done for your current course load. Should you choose freedom or finances? After past disappointments, your wife is unexpectedly pregnant. It's great news, but you've been training for a dream job that would take you away for the months around your baby's birth and the opportunity window is about to close since you're near the age cap. What's your best next move -- for yourself and your family? Life Pro Tip: Real wealth is about freedom. Money can help achieve these things, but there are plenty of people who make lots of money yet aren't free. Make choices that get you this kind of wealth, not just the money.

314: Michael Yon | China's Big Trouble in Little Hong Kong

Michael Yon (@Michael_Yon) is an author, columnist, and award-winning independent war correspondent who gives us a frontline view of the current civil unrest between Hong Kong protestors and the government of mainland China. What We Discuss with Michael Yon: What Michael means by his oft-truncated and misunderstood quote: "If a writer wants to make money, he should avoid truth and tell people what they want to hear. Yet to win the war, tell the truth." The difference between riots, protests, general civil unrest, and insurgency -- and what's really going on in Hong Kong right now in contrast with the official story. Why Michael considers himself a war correspondent and not a journalist -- and how the two differ. Why the long-simmering relationship between China and Hong Kong is only now coming to a boil, and what the rest of the world should take away from this. How the current movement in Hong Kong compares to Poland's Solidarity Movement of the '80s -- and why this especially worries the Chinese Communist Party. And much more...

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Confused by The Adam Carolla Show clips at the end of a few of our episodes? If you're not skipping commercials, you should have gotten the memo! ;) Like our new show art? Much thanks to Santi Fox for making it so! Many thanks to all the unknowns out there who keep sending us gifts but don't provide a return address! Should you call out your boyfriend's close female friend for flirting with him directly in front of you, or should you keep your cool? Friends give you the silent treatment when they're upset with you. Should you give them time to cool off, or is life just too short to deal with this kind of drama? Your mom has ADHD and gets so distracted by her phone and surroundings that it always causes a scene. How can you travel together and remain sane? You're either too social and your grad school work takes a hit, or you're too involved in school and your social life takes a hit. How can you strike a successful balance? Your friend/employer insists on paying you by check, but you usually have to text him reminders and personally pick it up. Aren't there easier ways to get paid these days? What are some tips for someone without a college degree going into interviews for entry-level corporate jobs? Life Pro Tip: For parents: Instead of always telling your child what to do, give them two options with the same outcome to prevent the headache of having them refuse the task. (For example, instead of telling them to put on their pajamas for bed, ask them which pajamas they want to wear to bed tonight. This works well because kids love having control over what they are doing.) For travelers: Bring a power strip with you to use at airports, and you'll never have to wait for an outlet to be available again.

312: John Tierney | Harnessing the Power of Bad

John Tierney (@johntierneynyc) is an award-winning science columnist for The New York Times, and he's the co-author of The Power of Bad: How the Negativity Effect Rules Us and How We Can Rule It. [Featured photo by Jamie Meggas] What We Discuss with John Tierney: What is negativity bias, and why does even a small dose of it have the power to overwhelm even our greatest reserves of positivity? How can we psychologically overcome this innate negativity bias? How we can watch the news (especially during an election year) without succumbing to deep despair at the state of the world by consuming what John calls a low-bad diet. Why the worst person at your workplace has the power to passively drag the whole team down beyond the abilities of the best person to bring it up. The negative golden rule -- it's what you do not do unto others that really matters. And much more...

What We Discuss with Susan David: What is emotional agility? What’s wrong with trying to force ourselves to be happy all the time? Is our society misguided by a tyranny of positivity today?

310: Should I Fudge My Age in Dating Apps? | Feedback Friday

As an active 45-year-old woman who is usually mistaken for someone 10 years younger, you're throwing your hat back in the dating game after six years. You realize that if you put your actual age on your dating app profile, you'll probably get filtered out by the age range of men you're looking for. Friends have encouraged you to put down 37 or 38 as your dating profile age so you'll still fall within the desired search results, but you're uncomfortable about the deception. In a situation like this, should you fudge your age in dating apps? We'll break down this and much more on the latest Feedback Friday right here! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/310. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: When you're active and appear 10 years younger than you are, is fudging your age in dating apps acceptable if you're only trying to fool the search algorithm and not potential matches? You never really bonded with your mother and you'd like to change that now, but she considers you "selfish." How much responsibility do both parties have to create familial closeness? There's a family rift between your father and uncle thanks to inheritance drama. You'd like to invite your aunt to your wedding, but don't want to appear disloyal to your father. What's the right thing to do? You've noticed that people who are very successful seem to have mastered the skill of remembering people's names, but you're terrible at it. How can you get better at remembering the names of people you meet? You have an amazing new job opportunity, but you've been planning a gap year to travel abroad and the timing couldn't be worse. Should you trust your gut and travel even though this opportunity might never come your way again? What are your options? How do you strike a balance between being an entrepreneur and a family man without neglecting your spouse and new baby -- or the needs of the nascent company you've worked hard to build? Life Pro Tip: Google your kid's prospective name before they're born. This way, when their name is googled, people won’t see news of some a-hole criminal with the same name.

Why do fighters trash talk (and does Laila regret any trash talking she did during her fighting career)? How did Laila make the choice to pivot from an aspiring nail salon tycoon to a world-class boxer? What was it like growing up around fame, and how does Laila’s father’s legacy still affect her?

308: Kris Buckner | Who Does Counterfeiting Really Hurt?

Kris Buckner is the president of Investigative Consultants, with over 22 years of experience in investigations related to trademark counterfeiting, piracy, and other intellectual property matters. What We Discuss with Kris Buckner: Why the trillion-dollar counterfeiting industry should concern you -- even if you don't care that the "Gucci" bag you got for $12 can't be spotted as a knockoff by the snootiest in your circle of friends. What gets counterfeited? You name it: designer clothes, automobile parts, cancer medication, alcohol, makeup, vaping products, perfume, computer parts, and kids' cough syrup are just the tip of the iceberg. How buying or selling counterfeit goods -- knowingly or otherwise -- potentially benefits corrupt regimes, terrorists, and organized crime networks around the world. The real harm counterfeit goods pose to the end consumer, from health risks associated with contaminated products to loose parts that can become choking hazards for small children. The real harm counterfeit goods pose to the legitimate economy, from fewer jobs to less tax revenue that funds law enforcement and education. And much more...

Should a tip be optional unless service is above and beyond what's expected from your server -- instead of obligatory because the restaurant or business won't pay their staff enough? You've been at your job for a long time and you want to do something different. How do you let your employer know that you want to transition out of your current role while still keeping a positive relationship? You're the only child, and you've got an overly sensitive and selfish parent you need to take care of. What can you do to make sure they don't stress you out when you're expected to drop everything to attend to their needs? You're in a long-term relationship that seems to be on track for marriage. What do we suggest you talk about to make sure you're both on the same page before you make the biggest commitment of your life? You want to settle down in one place after moving to six different states and countries over the past 12 years, but your spouse can't seem to decide where to settle. What can you do to come to an agreeable compromise? You're a successful, moderately attractive person who seems to get attention from all the wrong people. Potential friends either want to date you or worry their partners want to date you. On top of all this, you're demisexual. How can you find someone compatible?

BJ Fogg (@bjfogg) is the founder and director of the Stanford Behavior Design Lab, and author of Tiny Habits: The Small Changes That Change Everything. [Featured photo by Nathaniel Gerdes] What We Discuss with BJ Fogg: The main reasons we fail at behavior change -- even when we rationally know the long-term benefits heavily outweigh any short-term discomforts. The B=MAP Fogg Behavior Model that can be applied universally to understanding (and correcting) every type of behavior there is. How starter steps and tiny habits work as effective ways to "trick" our change-resistant human brains into radical behavior change. Why BJ prefers the term "untangling" rather than "breaking" in reference to habits we want to discontinue.  Why repetition is often repeated as being the catalyst for creating habits, why this tidbit of popular misinformation is so wrong, and what really works as a better catalyst.

He is also the author of Writing My Wrongs: Life, Death, and Redemption in an American Prison. What We Discuss with Shaka Senghor: How Shaka's childhood neighborhood in Detroit quickly went from idyllic to nightmarish when the crack epidemic struck in the '80s (and what he spent his money on when he became a dealer). The assorted sources of trauma faced by kids who wind up in the drug-dealing lifestyle and why such a lifestyle is initially appealing to them -- in spite of exposing them to very adult consequences. Why the current opioid crisis may actually be instrumental in helping heal societal class and racial divides widened during the crack epidemic. Why removing the stigma of mental health treatment is crucial to breaking the cycles of recidivism in which young people often get trapped. The series of events that landed Shaka in prison for 19 years, how he made use of his time there, and what he's doing to help fix a very broken system. And much more...

304: How to Avoid Addiction to Study Drugs | Feedback Friday

You're in your thirties, and although you've had reasonable success running your own business, you've always believed that you were lazy and unmotivated. You recently got diagnosed with ADHD and prescribed Adderall, and everything changed for the better. You're finally a hard worker, don't get distracted easily, and finish things you start. It's been a huge lifesaver and a huge boost to your self-confidence. After hearing Jordan talk about his negative experiences with Adderall in high school on the Darren Prince episode, it got you concerned. Your brother has been using Adderall for years, and said something that worried you. While on vacation, he lost his prescription and felt the need to find a doctor who could write him an emergency prescription. He regularly has to restrict towards the end of the month to make sure he doesn't run out, which signals he's taking extra doses. Should you be concerned for your brother getting addicted? Are you at risk of becoming dependent if you stay on it for years? We'll talk about this and much more on this latest episode of Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

The trip is officially full, but if you really, really want to go, reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com and we'll do our best to squeeze you in! Adderall's been a godsend in helping you focus since you were diagnosed with ADHD, but you worry you might become dependent on it over time. How can you avoid becoming addicted to study drugs? As a police officer, you train recruits to communicate effectively by treating people like humans, building rapport, and displaying empathy. So what's the best way for an officer to build rapport quickly during, for example, the brief interaction of a traffic stop? You want to help your mom move closer to you and the rest of the family because you know it will help alleviate her depression, but you're not exactly rich. How can you raise a loan or borrow money to cover her move and a place to live in a short amount of time? You slacked in high school and now you're a 30-year-old custodian. You have the ambition to return to school and seek work in the infosec/cybersecurity industry, but your wife is unable to work and you make just enough to get by. How can you stay working full time and return to school without spending money you don't have? What are our thoughts on investing in cryptocurrency in 2020? What's...

303: Megan Phelps-Roper | Unfollowing Westboro Baptist Church Part Two

Megan Phelps-Roper (@meganphelps) grew up in the Westboro Baptist Church, an organization widely monitored as a hate group for its anti-gay, anti-Jewish, anti-American protests. She left WBC in 2012 and has since written about her experiences in Unfollow: A Memoir of Loving and Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church. This is part two of a two-part episode. Listen to part one here! What We Discuss with Megan Phelps-Roper: What catalyzed Megan and her sister's departure from the Westboro Baptist Church in 2012, and how do the family members left behind feel about their decision? The logistics Megan and her sister faced when they decided to leave the home and family they'd known their entire lives to start anew in the outside world. What Megan learned about the human capacity for empathy, generosity, forgiveness — and general goodness — by revisiting people she'd formerly picketed in WBC. What Megan's experiences have taught her about the cognitive biases we all have — about everything from religion to politics — no matter how smart we think we are. The four steps others used to break through to Megan and get her to have real conversations, and how we can use them to connect with people who disagree with us on a fundamental level.

She left WBC in 2012 and has since written about her experiences in Unfollow: A Memoir of Loving and Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church. This is part one of a two-part episode. Stay tuned for the second episode coming later this week! What We Discuss with Megan Phelps-Roper: What it was like to grow up in what documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux called "The Most Hated Family in America." Why the Westboro Baptist Church feels it's uniquely qualified to spread what it sees as the "true" word of God in a way that shocks and offends the rest of the world. How the Westboro Baptist Church interprets feelgood lessons from the Bible like "Love thy neighbor" and the tale of the good Samaritan. Why children who grow up in Westboro Baptist Church aren't educated at home, but encouraged to go to public schools. The complicated history of the church's founder (and Megan's grandfather), Fred Phelps, who championed civil rights for African-Americans as a lawyer while campaigning against homosexuals, Jewish people, dead soldiers, tsunami victims, Mr. Rogers, and others deemed "deviant" by his very specific interpretation of the Bible (e.g., everybody not belonging to Westboro Baptist Church).

301: How to Fight an Out-of-State Speeding Ticket | Feedback Friday

You're not sure if the speeding ticket you got driving across the country was given because you had out-of-state license plates, you were racially profiled, or there was an equipment failure of some kind, but you're pretty sure it wasn't for speeding. You want to fight it, but you're not sure what your legal options and obligations are.

But due to the nature of your job (which you love), you can't move back to your home state without having to give it up. How do you make an informed decision in this situation? Driving across the country, you were stopped in Texas and ticketed for speeding even though your speedometer says otherwise. You're not sure if you were flagged for out-of-state plates or racially profiled, but you'd like to fight it. What are your legal options?

299: Steve Elkins | Finding the Lost City of the Monkey God

Steve Elkins is a cinematographer and explorer whose discovery of and expedition to a legendary settlement in the rainforest of Honduras is chronicled in The Lost City of the Monkey God: A True Story by Douglas Preston. [Featured photo by Ryan Hartford of Ecliptic Media] What We Discuss with Steve Elkins: How did Steve and his team manage to only recently discover a legendary city in the Honduran rainforest that had been aggressively -- and fruitlessly -- sought out by disappointed locals and explorers for half a millennium? The countless natural and manmade dangers of exploring the mosquito-infested region of Honduras known locally as "The Gates of Hell" -- from venom-spitting snakes to quicksand to drug cartels. Why knowing an unhinged guy with a gun can come in handy when your producer needs to leave the expedition early and return to civilization for a family emergency. The logistics, legal considerations, and politics that go into being outsiders exploring the cultural heritage of another country. The details of what Steve and his team discovered, and what this discovery has brought to light beyond the mere satisfaction of archaeological curiosity. And much more...

298: My Dad Is a Pedophile | Feedback Friday

Your dad is a pedophile. He's taken naked pictures of kids, including one of your cousins on your mom's side, and posted them online. He's been caught by the police, but he's been let go on some kind of probation. You don't know how to handle the situation. For some context, You're a high functioning autistic person. You're able to live on your own, take care of yourself, and hold down a full time job, but you have a lot of problems making and maintaining friendships and you have enough sensory issues that you don't like to leave your house any more than you need to. On the one hand, it would be a great relief to you if you never had to see or hear from your parents again. On the other hand, the number of people in your support network is already quite small, and you wouldn't want to lose contact with your sister, who has very severe mental health problems and is still living at home. What should you do? This is pretty dark and heavy territory, but we'll do our best to offer some real advice on this and much more in this Feedback Friday. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/298. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan for his birthday this February? It'll be here sooner than you know it! Reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details if you want to go! Your significant other paid for you to attend college and supported you financially as you started out in your career. Now that you're on track financially, you're having relationship issues. How should money factor into a situation like this? Years ago, your mother and sister found out your father was having affairs with multiple women. It was devastating at the time, but you all eventually moved on when he agreed to stop. Today, you saw him with one of those women. How do you handle this? Your dad is a convicted pedophile on probation. You're a high-functioning autistic person living on your own who would love to never see your parents again, but you don't want to lose contact with your sister who still lives at home. What can you do? Do the potential networking, career, and social benefits of living in a big, expensive city outweigh the increased cost of living? Your girlfriend has been getting therapy to improve in academia from an unlicensed "life coach" who sells her expensive (and ultimately useless) gadgets, and now has the gall to tell her you're manipulative, controlling, and patronizing for not being supportive. How can you lovingly steer your girlfriend away from this shameless shyster? How you can communicate a barter proposal in an attractive...

How to deal with the woefully un-self-aware people in your life. How to use mindfulness to become more self-aware, and how to practice it without mantras.

294: Should I Expose a Sexually Abusive Nephew? | Feedback Friday

You have a nephew who has a history of undressing, touching genitals, and dry humping smaller, weaker humans than himself. These humans either do not consent or are unable to consent. It's well known in your family that he can't be left alone with children. There have been numerous incidents with different witnesses and victims spread out over the years. Today this nephew is 20 years old and expecting a baby with his live-in girlfriend. You were horrified and began asking if this girlfriend knew about his history. No one seems to know if she's aware, but are strongly agreed that it's not any of your places to tell her. But you fear that if you don't tell her, no one will. Taking it upon yourself, what's the best way to deliver the news? And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan this February? It's filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details! Your nephew has had a history of being sexually abusive, and now he has a kid of his own on the way. While the rest of your family wants to ignore the problem, how do you step up and tell the mother-to-be? As a frequent employee of the month, you recently negotiated a raise to your salary only to discover that you're making the same amount as someone who was recently hired and is already on probation for dropping the ball too many times. Should you say something? The Jordan Harbinger Show is banned in China, possibly for allowing guests to air anti-government opinions (and, to be fair, facts). Do Jordan and Jen ever worry about extended family who may still live there being in danger as a result? As your uncle's sole beneficiary, you were left with a house he wanted the family to enjoy after he passed. Your other family members feel they should be entitled to their fair share of what the house is worth, though they're happy enough to leave you holding the bag for the funeral, legal, bills, upkeep, and yard work. What should you do? Two months ago, you earned and accepted a job transfer within the company where you've worked for 14 years. Unfortunately, the department you're leaving is understaffed and overworked, and the status of your transfer has been postponed indefinitely. How can you continue to advocate for your transfer date without seeming like you have a bad attitude? Is it time to just find a new job? Life Pro Tip: Winter is in full force in many places, so be sure to keep a bag of cat litter (for traction under your tires if you get stuck in the snow), a shovel, a hat, gloves, a blanket or...

293: Zak Dychtwald | How Young China Will Change the World

Zak Dychtwald (@zakdychtwald) is the Founder of think tank and consultancy Young China Group and author of Young China: How the Restless Generation Will Change Their Country and the World. What We Discuss with Zak Dychtwald: At 417 million strong, China has more millennials than North America, the Middle East, and Europe combined. Chinese millennials and its younger generations are experiencing -- and influencing -- a society and culture changing at 10 times the speed of what Western millennials have experienced. What this breakneck rate of change means for the childhood of someone growing up in modern China and the effect it has on his or her resulting worldview. Whether we view it as a collaborator, competitor, or consumer, this "Young China" is the single most important rising actor on the world stage. How Zak became fluent in Mandarin -- considered by the CIA to be the hardest language to learn in the world -- at the highest level in two and a half years instead of the customary six.

Your sibling and their fiance have decided to get married on one of the few nights you can't get out of work. To whom do you owe your loyalty? Your mother stopped making payments on a parent loan taken out for your education, and now you're stuck with $28,000 in interest. What happens next? You accidentally fell asleep on the job, and if you don't adjust your time card, no one else would be the wiser. What should you do? Retiring from a professional athletic career, you wonder if your BA in economics will cut it for your next career move, or if you should go back to school? Your friend is publishing articles about his industry in order to raise his profile at work. But how do you tactfully suggest that his writing is sorely in need of editing?

291: Doug Williams | The Truth about Polygraphs and Lie Detection

Doug Williams (@DougWilliams_PG) is an ex-cop on a 40-year crusade against what he calls the "evil, insidious Orwellian polygraph industry" that landed him in federal prison for two years. What We Discuss with Doug Williams: How does the so-called "lie-detecting" polygraph test actually work, and how easy is it to fool? Why is private industry in the United States forbidden from using polygraph testing to screen job applicants, whereas the government relies on it? How dangerous is it to national security that this reliance hinges on trusting technology contemporary with (and arguably as complex as) the invention of the toaster? Why polygraph testing has more in common with pseudo-sciences like phrenology, conversion therapy, and dowsing than disciplines verifiable by the scientific method. How Doug wound up serving two years in a federal prison for teaching people how to beat polygraph tests with a method not dissimilar to body control taught to expectant mothers in Lamaze classes.

290: He's Wasting Inheritance on Pyramid Scheme | Feedback Friday

When a family inheritance is split between two siblings, only one of them is given control over how the money is spent due to the other's penchant for get-rich-quick scams and bad investments. What can the family do to close the rift this power dynamic is causing while ensuring half of the inheritance isn't wasted on a pyramid scheme? This and more on the latest Feedback Friday!

How can you renegotiate for a better salary when you gladly accepted an offer without negotiating in the first place? As a healthcare worker who sees death more often than most, how can you healthily deal with the spiritual void you feel thanks to a bad relationship with organized religion? When is it okay to stop banging your head against the system and just relax? What should you make of it when your wife of almost a decade out of the blue suggests that she wants you to get a girlfriend?

289: Akshay Nanavati | Fearvana: Finding Bliss from Suffering

Akshay Nanavati (@fearvanalife) is a former Marine who has survived PTSD, depression, alcoholism, and suicidal ideation to build a global business, run ultramarathons, and explore the world's most hostile environments. He is also the author of Fearvana: The Revolutionary Science of How to Turn Fear into Health, Wealth and Happiness. What We Discuss with Akshay Nanavati: What going on a seven-day retreat in total darkness and isolation taught Akshay about himself that transcended rationality and the reality of his senses. Why Akshay believes that the single greatest barrier standing in the way of our well-being is our negative relationship to suffering -- such as the way we demonize fear, stress, and anxiety. What does Akshay mean when he recommends finding "the worthy struggle" that will make our suffering meaningful? Stillness accompanied by consciousness and intention versus doing nothing, and what we risk by being afraid to confront what lurks in the space of our deepest darkness. Why Akshay considers the prevailing idea in the self-help world of "I am enough" to be nonsense, why we are not enough, and -- most important -- why that's not a bad thing. And much more...

What We Discuss with Erik Weihenmayer: How challenges unite us as human beings -- no matter our hardships or handicaps.

How Erik embraces a "no barriers" philosophy to guide and lift others -- even when their own cultures seek to keep them down.

As a business owner, how should you respond to competition fishing for pricing? How do you find hangout buddies? What can you do to help your boss step up as the leader you need him or her to be?

How should you stop taking feedback so personally -- especially when it's given by the people you love?

285: Jack Barsky | Deep Undercover with a KGB Spy in America Part One

Jack Barsky (@DeepCoverBarsky) joins us to discuss his book Deep Undercover: My Secret Life and Tangled Allegiances as a KGB Spy in America. This is part one of a two-part episode; part two airs later this week! What We Discuss with Jack Barsky: What Jack Barsky's childhood was like in postwar East Germany. The stickiness of Soviet-style communist ideology and how it appealed to young people on Jack's side of the Iron Curtain. How spies were recruited and trained during the Cold War. What skills Jack used to assimilate seamlessly into American culture. Why caution is a spy's best friend; paranoia is his enemy. And so much more...

284: Should I Secretly Test My Kid's Paternity? | Feedback Friday

While doing a little Facebook stalking recently, you noticed that photos of your wife's ex-boyfriend's youngest look suspiciously like your own youngest. You're thinking about discreetly having your kid take a paternity test, but you're honestly not sure what you'd do if the results confirmed your suspicions. So what should you do? We'll try to help you with this and more on the latest Feedback Friday!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/284. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Should you secretly undertake a paternity test on your 11-year old? You're a cybersecurity student stuck in a career ditch. How do you dig yourself out? You struggle with stammering. What can you do to find your way through? How do you sell ideas without getting them stolen? What does "I'm here if you need anything" actually mean, and how far can you take it? Threatened by hackers, you wonder: where do old passwords go to die? Should you report your ex for a visa breach that could get them deported? How can you get out of spending Thanksgiving with your fiance's family for for much needed "me" time? Life Pro Tip: Next commute, take time to listen to your car without the radio on. Your ears may pick up on sounds you wouldn't otherwise notice that indicate it's time to take it to the shop.

Brian Koppelman (@BrianKoppelman) is a writer, filmmaker, producer, and director. He's currently the showrunner, co-creator, and executive producer of Billions on Showtime and the host of The Moment podcast. What We Discuss with Brian Koppelman: Law school is an expensive (but not completely useless) place to learn life lessons. How do you know when you've done work of "undeniable" quality -- in the absolute sense? The line between being an artist and being delusional is very thin.

282: Ken Perenyi | The Secret Life of an American Art Forger

Ken Perenyi is a former art forger who spent 34 years creating fake paintings that passed muster among the experts in the world's major auction houses and galleries. He comes clean to tell us how he got away with it in his book Caveat Emptor: The Secret Life of an American Art Forger. What We Discuss with Ken Perenyi: How Ken, as an academically disinclined New Jersey teenager with no artistic background and zero plans for the future, fell headfirst into the New York art scene of the '60s and '70s. What a fortuitous trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art awakened in Ken and how it led from technical curiosity to natural talent to outright forgery. How Ken prematurely aged his work to appear hundreds of years old, the materials he used, and how long it took him to create forgeries that would fool even lifelong, devoted experts. The first nervous deal Ken ever made and how it fed an ambition to take his talents as far as they would go. How Ken survived scrutiny by the mafia and FBI, changed his ways, and now works on the level selling "high-class fakes" rather than "forgeries." And much more...

281: My Wife Thinks I'm Hiding Money | Feedback Friday

Your shopaholic wife spends like there's no tomorrow, and is irked that you won't add her to the account for the business you've been running since before you were married. In fact, she loves to gain sympathy from others by telling them you're hiding money away from her -- which irks you. But one practical question did recently come up: What happens to the money in that account if anything should ever happen to you and she doesn't have access to it? On this Feedback Friday, we delve into this and much more! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It's filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details! It's been a long day. Are you a jerk for not letting someone cut in front of you in the grocery store checkout line just because they say their child is waiting for them in their car and everyone behind you already let them through? You were able to use the tips you learned about negotiation in our episodes with Alex Kouts and Ramit Sethi to get a raise from your old boss. But now that it's time to ask for an increase, you've got a new boss with whom you haven't yet established rapport. Should you wait? In another nod to the Alex Kouts episodes, you've negotiated the raises to elevate you into a higher tax bracket -- but you're clueless about how to behave in the associated culture. How do you fit in with your new peers without feeling like you just landed on another planet? Even though your parents don't let your 10-year-old sister use Instagram because they don't want her interacting with creepy DMs from predators, she's allowed to use TikTok because of the "funny videos" even though you know the creeps are there, too. How can you keep her safe? Three years ago, you married a widow whose husband died three years before that. You don't really have a problem talking about him with her, but you no longer want to visit his grave with her where she breaks down and makes you feel like a consolation prize. Is this wrong of you? Your shop-happy wife is irked that she doesn't have access to the business account you've had since before you got married, and...

280: Sarah Hill | This Is Your Brain on Birth Control

Dr. Sarah Hill (@sarahehillphd) is a leading researcher in the dynamic and rapidly expanding field of evolutionary psychology, and the author of This Is Your Brain on Birth Control: The Surprising Science of Women, Hormones, and the Law of Unintended Consequences. What We Discuss with Dr. Sarah Hill: How hormonal birth control affects women -- and the world around them -- in ways we are just now beginning to understand. Why a woman will be attracted to a certain partner while taking hormonal birth control -- and the problems this could cause for a relationship when she stops taking it. On a hormonal contraceptive, a woman is twice as likely to have attempted suicide as a woman who was not on a hormonal contraceptive. Why, in spite of its drawbacks, Sarah credits the pill to her own ability to achieve a doctorate and career success. Why these new findings should be a rallying cry for women to demand more information from science about how their bodies and brains work and to advocate for better research. And much more...

279: Dennis Quaid | Sharks, a Bear, and a Banjo

Dennis Quaid has been a Hollywood leading man for decades, fronts a band called The Sharks, and now stars in a new scripted musical podcast called Bear and a Banjo. What We Discuss with Dennis Quaid: Whether or not getting rejected for a coveted job in Hollywood ever gets easier -- even when you've been getting cast for decades. Why Dennis considers fear his greatest motivator -- and what this indicates to him when he feels it upon being offered a role. The hardest place to get respect, the greatest things our kids teach us, and where dad jokes go to die. Listening versus improvising, and how Dennis brings his characters to life without strictly memorizing his lines before arriving on set. Accents, biographical misinformation, and how learning to play a real-life astronaut led to Dennis learning how to fly real-life planes. And much more...

278: My Mother Lied about Our Father's Death | Feedback Friday

When you were kids, you and your brother moved to the other side of the country with your mother and stepfather not long after your parents divorced. You never saw your father again, and believed your mother when she said that he and his mother -- your grandmother -- had died. Fast forward to now. You and your brother are adults, and he's got a bombshell to drop: your grandmother is still alive, and your father only recently passed away. Feeling betrayed, you've pieced together your mother and stepfather's systematic strategy to estrange you from your dad's side of the family (who, by the way, tried to find you over that time without success) -- and you're angry. You feel robbed of the time you could have spent with them, and you're wondering how you should raise the issue with your mother -- or if you should. This is obviously a sensitive situation, but we'll do our best to help you with this and more on the latest Feedback Friday. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It's filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details! When you have to cover for your kid's friend's expenses on a movie and pizza night because his mom neglected to provide him with any cash, is it wrong for you to expect his mother to recompensate you for those expenses even though she works two jobs and says you look like you can afford it? Your 80-year-old grandmother insists on bringing your bedridden and nonverbal father home instead of putting him in a place where he can get the constant care he needs. Putting your grandmother's strong will aside, what's the most responsible call to make here? As kids, you and your brother moved across the country with your mom when your parents divorced. Until recently, you never saw your dad's side of the family again because, your brother recently discovered, your mom lied about your father and your grandmother's deaths. How do you confront your mother -- or should you? You have a serious case of wanderlust. You have no debt, no children, and above average savings. But your friends and family look at you like you're insane whenever you mention leaving a job you love in order to travel. You know that the amazing experiences will be worth it, but can't help but wonder: are you crazy? You work in an incredibly cutthroat sales company where only 10%-15% of employees hired retain their employment, and you're in that top 15%. But you don't love your job and only stick around because you've got the "golden handcuffs" to keep you tethered. You're an underperforming...

What We Discuss with Neil Pasricha: Why anxiety is at an all-time high when we live in an age of relative ease compared to what our ancestors (and even recent generations) endured. Why you need to be prepared — and willing — to lose more if you want to win more from what life has to offer.

How to use the Saturday morning test to brainstorm new skills, adventures, and personal improvements you'd like to implement.

James Stavridis (@stavridisj) is a retired United States Navy admiral, operating executive with The Carlyle Group, and author. His latest book, Sailing True North: Ten Admirals and the Voyage of Character, is out now. What We Discuss with James Stavridis: What Admiral Stavridis means when he says we're "overweight in thinking about leadership and underweight in thinking about character." Why creativity and innovation are important for leaders -- and the roadblocks that tend to smother these qualities as we achieve in our lives and careers. Principles followed when top brass make decisions that put people in harm's way. The winners and losers in the recent decision to pull US troops from Syria and what this means for our former allies in the region. Meditations on single malt scotch whisky and the dangers of bringing alcohol to sea on a US Navy ship. And much more...

Your fiance travels and stays in hotels at different locations every week for work. The other day, you found black Victoria's Secret panties in your laundry. The thing it, you don't wear Victoria's Secret. So you approached him and said, "I need help understanding how this is in our belongings." He said this is a truly unfortunate situation because he doesn't know how it got there. You closely watched him for any signs that would alarm you as hints of lying. You found none. Is there any surefire way to know if a significant other is cheating beyond what amounts to circumstantial evidence? We'll try to unlock this and more on the latest Feedback Friday!

A mysterious pair of panties that don't belong to you showed up in your laundry after your fiance returned from a business trip. He says he has no idea how they got there. Is there a surefire way to tell if he's been cheating and lying? You're a single dad who shares equal custody of a five-year-old son. His mom and new husband have offered the option to stay in a trailer on their property. You all get along great and this would be convenient for everyone, but is it an appropriate arrangement? As a leader in the workplace, you helped someone you thought was an amazing employee get promoted. Now you find that this person is mocking you behind your back and taking sick days once a month. You went to bat for this person and you feel betrayed. What now? You've been using techniques in Six-Minute Networking for talking to strangers, but what can you do when people aggressively try to shut down a conversation? Should you just call it a loss, cut bait, and move on, or try to break the dam a different way? You broke up with your girlfriend of four years because she started having feelings for another woman. Neither of you want this, but you're not able to continue loving her and only her knowing that she doesn't love you and only you back. Where do you go from here? You're worried that your significant other's negativity is rubbing off on you; your social life is suffering and you haven't felt like yourself lately. Even though you still care about them, you feel breaking up is the best way to give them the time and space they need. But how? You just started a new career. You want to start off strongly, but you already feel intimidated and think perhaps you have a little imposter syndrome. What can...

Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) is the creator of comic strip Dilbert, a talent stacker extraordinaire, and bestselling author. His latest book, Loserthink: How Untrained Brains Are Ruining America, is out now. What We Discuss with Scott Adams: Why the term “loserthink” isn't about being uninformed — it's about unproductive thinking. Mental models we use that sometimes fail us, and thinking traps that we fall into when we're looking to interpret communication, evaluate facts or evidence, and form opinions.

Bonus: Evan Goldberg | What Oracle NetSuite Knew about the Future That Even Steve Jobs Didn't

Evan Goldberg (@NetSuite) is the cofounder and Executive Vice President of Oracle NetSuite, which has grown from a small office above a hair salon into a global organization that now works with more than 18,000 customers in 200+ countries and dependent territories. What We Discuss with Evan Goldberg: Why Evan made the move from his cozy, vice presidential office at Oracle to helm his own startup in early cloud technologies. The important lessons Evan learned on the smaller scale of a startup that address the needs of a much larger business like Oracle NetSuite. What Larry Ellison and Evan understood about the potential for cloud technologies in '99 that even the visionary Steve Jobs had trouble seeing at first. Why you might want to pay attention to the enthusiasm the guy in the Lexus LFA has for your product idea and implementation when you have trouble seeing over the dashboard of your Honda minivan. Why a small business owner who researched NetSuite Oracle a decade or so ago and dismissed it as too expensive might be able to reconsider it as an option today. And much more...

272: How to Sue Your Parents for Identity Theft | Feedback Friday

Last week you texted your parents to let them know you'd be able to make it home for Christmas this year. They called back to tell you how they decided several years ago to buy a boat. The only problem was that they didn't have the $20,000 to buy it. Their solution? Take out a student loan in your name, of course! Now they've missed several payments and it's about to default, and your father had the nerve to say, "If you're going to make a big deal about this, it's best if you don't come home this year." In shock and 'about' $25,000' in debt, you're wondering if you should sue your parents for identity theft. On this Feedback Friday, we'll do our best to help you figure out not only if, but how to sue your parents for identity theft if you decide it's the right thing to do. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/272. On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Your parents are about to default on a $20,000 student loan they took out in your name without permission so they could buy a boat. So now the question is not only if, but how to sue your parents for identity theft and make sure you’re not on the hook for their mistake. This year, your sister bought plentiful gifts for your oldest and youngest kids, but shorted the middle one considerably. You don’t want to appear ungrateful, but what can you do to make it clear how this is going to play out for Jan Brady on Christmas morning? You have trouble connecting and communicating with people and cultures outside your own. You’re a science-y, city type struggling with social skills, and your work brings you into contact with a more rural demographic. How can you bridge the gap? Because you compete in beauty pageants, some make incorrect assumptions about your intelligence. How can you build your professional identity and network as a future physician without having to hide your personal interests and accomplishments? You’re in a small market and want to get noticed by potential mentors or hiring managers outside of your geographic location. What thoughts or strategies do we have for moving up the corporate ladder? Your recent college graduate son is an introvert with Asperger-like qualities when it comes to interpersonal skills. When you bring up networking as a way to get ahead in his new career, he shuts down and exits the conversation. How can you best support his progress? You’re starting to plan your work travel for next year. How do we decide what conferences and events are worth our time when we’re making our travel plans? You hate winter so much because of the cold, the dark, and the holidays. You get depressed and stressed, and basically hibernate. What do we recommend for people with past abuse for whom the holidays turn into a deep, dark, angry depression? Life Pro Tip: If you have aging parents, go through their bills with them and make...

271: Ryan Holiday | Stillness Is the Key

Ryan Holiday (@ryanholiday) is the bestselling author of Trust Me, I'm Lying; The Obstacle Is the Way; Ego Is the Enemy; Conspiracy, and other books about marketing, culture, and the human condition. His latest offering is Stillness Is the Key. What We Discuss with Ryan Holiday: How successful people learn to process feedback -- and consider its source in order to improve and move forward. Why self-awareness is the secret weapon of some of the highest-performing people you'll meet. What can keep us striving and moving upward in a world where it's way too easy to compare ourselves to one another and beat ourselves up in the process. How Ryan found the purpose and motivation to write eight books and ghost write another six by the time he was 30. The eerie, intuitive, borderline magical superpowers of Mr. Rogers, Cesar Millan, and the two daycare miracle workers who can put 15 toddlers down for a nap (including Ryan's son) simultaneously every day.

What We Discuss with Ben Horowitz: What the Haitian slave revolt can teach us about creating a thriving, resilient company culture from chaos. Why a company's culture -- for better or worse -- will endure in the memory of the people who work there far longer than the consequences of a bad quarter. The disasters that strike when a company's core values and culture reveal their dark side. How prison culture influences the way some billion dollar tech companies are managed.

269: My Stepdaughter's Mom Is A Sex Worker | Feedback Friday

Your stepdaughter is 14 and has been living full time with you and your husband for about eight years. Every other weekend she spends with her mom, who you know is a sex worker. The stepdaughter just says her mom works away, but doesn't know what she does. Recently you were sent a screenshot of a Facebook post from another mom in your stepdaughter's class asking if it was real. The post had an ad for your stepdaughter's Mom's "services." You haven't answered yet because you don't know what to say. Since it's out on Facebook, should you give the stepdaughter a heads up that her mom takes money for sex, or do you let her get blindsided by the kids in school? On this Feedback Friday, we'll try to help you do the right thing here. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Unknown to her, your stepdaughter's biological mother is a sex worker. Now that busybodies in your town have found out, should you tell her before she finds out from her bullying classmates? You're forced to interact often with someone who doesn't respect your time and keeps you locked in long, boring conversations for what adds up to about three hours a week. What's your best escape plan? Your fiance's sister moved to a new city and hasn't had much success with networking. As far as you know, she hasn't made any friends, isn't dating, and doesn't have any hobbies. You want to help her, but you're not sure how. What do we suggest? When you have new coworkers who seem to go out of their way to exclude you from their conversations, it's hard not to take it personally. What can you do, if anything, to cope with cliques in the workplace? You've found a job for which you'd love to apply, but the company is requiring a cover letter with pay requirements. Is there a comfortable middle ground you can ask for that doesn't make you seem overzealous? You're analytical, and your spouse is emotional. You usually play off of each other's strengths, but you're currently in a conversational stalemate in which you feel like your spouse is treating you like a jerk for just trying to help. What's really going on here? You recently graduated from a great school, but you've only managed to get a handful of interviews and no offers over the last several months. Your confidence and resources are dwindling and you don't know what else to do. How can you keep your spirits up while finding your bearings? What does cultivating...

Robert Spalding (@robert_spalding) is a national security strategist and a globally recognized expert on Chinese economic competition and influence. He retired from the US Air Force as a brigadier general, and is the author of Stealth War: How China Took Over While America's Elite Slept. What We Discuss with Robert Spalding: The consequences the United States faces as a result of its economic connections to a totalitarian state that openly opposes its core values. How electronics and sensors are being created for American consumers that send data to China to feed the government's artificial intelligence systems. Why there can't be a global free market system when the second biggest economy in the world isn't participating. How US manufacturing suffers as a result of consumer demand for "cheap stuff" that China is more than happy to fulfill. China's fraudulent accounting methods, akin to a ponzi scheme, that actively erode the US economy with assistance from the very people this hurts. And much more...

He is the author of Face to Face: The Art of Human Connection. What We Discuss with Brian Grazer: What imposter syndrome looks like when you're at the top of the Hollywood game. How Brian turned a childhood learning disability into a superpower. Why being called a loser by Harvey Weinstein at the 1996 Academy Awards doesn't Brian hurt so much these days.

266: Should I Tell My Friend He's a Horrible Person? | Feedback Friday

Recently you stopped all contact with a childhood friend due to his toxic behavior. He went through a pretty bad breakup due to his behavior and you had enough. He thinks that by being a horrible dick to people, he's being really honest and helping them. Your other friends tell you that you should talk to him about why you cut him off, but you feel you've told him one too many times why he's a dick and what he could do to change. Do you owe him a conversation just because you were childhood friends? On this Feedback Friday, we'll try to help you decide whether to continue ghosting this ex-friend or actually take the time to tell him he's a horrible person. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Recently you stopped all contact with a childhood friend due to his toxic behavior. Do you owe him a conversation just because you were childhood friends -- even if it's just to tell him he's a horrible person? You've grown distant from your once-close sibling, who has become increasingly anxious and self-isolated to the point where family visits never happen anymore. Is there a way you can help draw them out? Your boyfriend enjoys porn, so you're wondering -- from a guy's perspective -- why is it necessary to have an “escape” from a relationship with a partner who is perfectly willing to do it all? Is he just scared to be vulnerable enough to ask you? After six potential relationships got nipped in the bud because the other person says you're "too good" for them, your suspicions are aroused. What's the most likely story, and what can you do to change this all-too-familiar outcome? When you work in politics and it's election season, how do you wrangle your campaign volunteers to do the work that's proven effective (phone calls and knocking on doors) instead of the work they want to do (strategy meetings and social media)? You're constantly told you need to meet with mentors, but you've gotten a lot of terrible advice from them. Is there any value to just going through the motions with bad mentors who may be great connections if not the soundest strategists? You're a shoe-in for a job opportunity opening near you soon, but it would mean pulling out of a job you're not that excited about that requires a lengthy commute. How can you let go of the latter job without leaving anyone in the lurch? Life Pro Tip: Feeling a gag reflex? Squeeze your fist really...

What We Discuss with Moran Cerf: What would a future in which we could connect our brains to the cloud and outsource parts of our thinking look like? Can we — or will we ever be able to — record and share our dreams like home movies of the most intimate kind? How teachers might use virtual reality attuned to our specific brain engagement patterns to ensure we're learning at an optimal rate.

He is also now an author, and his first book, The Way I Heard It, is out now. What We Discuss with Mike Rowe: The kind of cognitive dissonance Mike believes our country needs right now, and the tropes we could afford to grasp more loosely. How the prevailing desire among correction culture commandos to prove others wrong on the Internet stifles our ability to exchange ideas freely. Why Mike eschews second takes in favor of presenting his audience with the authentic moments they trust him to share. How Mike's thrifty (and crafty) parents suckered him into feeling sorry for rich people when he was growing up. Why we shouldn't view a blue collar career pursuit as a cautionary tale in comparison to the lifelong debt likely incurred by chasing a four-year degree these days.

263: How Can I Win Back My Spouse's Respect? | Feedback Friday

You recently had a revelation that your spouse has zero respect for you. On a daily basis, you're reminded how to do basic tasks and criticized for every minor mistake you make. You've also noticed that they never value your advice, and if they have a question about something — no matter how confident your answer is — they'll always ask someone else afterward as if they don't value or believe your answer. You work hard, have a good job that supports your family on your income alone, you help out around the house probably more than most in your position, and you're going to school to further your education and job opportunities even more. The big question is: If they really do have zero respect for you, how can you win back your spouse's respect? We'll try to answer this and much more on the latest Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

From the way you're treated in public and private, you recently had a revelation that your spouse of several years has zero respect for you. Even if you can figure out why, can respect ever be regained after it's lost? If so, how? You're trying to get through college as an introvert, but your challenges are going as expected. Once people have an impression of you as an unfriendly person fixed in their minds, is it possible to change it? You're trying to move into another role at your current company; you had a great interview and thought it was a sure thing. But they chose someone else and you wonder what went wrong. What can you do to improve your chances next time? Your significant other isn't pulling their weight financially. How can you tactfully approach the matter without making them feel completely worthless, and what can you do to ensure they understand the concept of “adulting?” You're from a developing nation and, thanks to the Internet, you relate more to Western culture than the one in which you were raised. Unfortunately, any potential significant other isn't on board with your “radical” views. Should you seek love in another land even though you don't have a lot of money to travel? You're young, and so are most of your network connections. Should you still work on this younger network, or should you try to build an older network while maintaining the one you currently have?

261: Mubin Shaikh | Up Close with an Undercover Jihadi

Mubin Shaikh (@MrMubinShaikh) is a former Islamic extremist who became an undercover counter-terrorism operative instrumental in exposing a plot to hold Canada's Parliament hostage and behead the Prime Minister. He is the co-author of Undercover Jihadi: Inside the Toronto 18 -- Al Qaeda Inspired, Homegrown Terrorism in the West. What We Discuss with Mubin Shaikh: What does "radicalization" mean to someone who's experienced it firsthand, and how can it convert a teenaged Canadian metalhead into a true believer of a cause that uses terrorism to accomplish its goals? What did it take for this true believer to change course and start working for his government's counter-terrorist agency? The differences between Sufi and Wahhabi Islam, and what makes the latter a more suitable creed for extremists. Why "terrorism is the atom bomb of the poor man." How Mubin's undercover work exposed a massive terrorist plot, and what the aftermath of this operation looked like. And much more...

260: How to Quit Your Prostitute Problem | Feedback Friday

You're in your 30s, single, and you have a problem with prostitutes. You don't even really enjoy the experience and you know it's not worth your time, money, or the legal or health risks, but you still have an irresistible compulsion to continue meeting with them. Even more troubling is that you've noticed it's slowly changing how you see money and women. You know you'd like to settle down with the right woman some day, but you worry that the temptation to cheat on her with a prostitute could ruin everything. It's out of control. So what can you do? On this Feedback Friday, we'll try to help you figure out how to quit your prostitute problem (and determine why you have one in the first place). And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It's filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details! Your proclivity for prostitutes is a problem. Perhaps there's a process to properly put this pricey, precarious, and pointless pursuit out to pasture? As a first time juror, how do you balance your desire for justice with impartiality in a difficult-to-prove case? [Thanks to Corbin Payne, Esq. for helping with this one!] When everyone has to work harder to make up for the boss' brother (who pulls full salary but only shows up half the time), can company culture be called to task, or is it just time to move on? You wound up on Hertz's do not rent list as the result of a fraudster stealing cars under your identity. The company refuses to take you off the list in spite of proof you weren't at fault. Is there any recourse for you? You believe you have solid ideas, but no capital or time to develop and market them. Is it possible to sell these ideas to someone with these resources without getting taken advantage of? You've just turned 18, but feel directionless. While you don't want to live a "normal" life that's been played out millions of times, becoming a therapist or trying your hand at standup comedy have crossed your mind. What's our advice? If you're the average of the five people you spend the most time with, what happens when you can't relate to anyone in your immediate circle since moving to be closer to your spouse's family in another country and settling for a miserable, underpaying job? Your coworker would be more articulate (and effective at his job) if he could only eliminate that Beaky Buzzard-like "duhhhhh" he uses as conversation filler. How can you tactfully suggest ways for him to hone his presentation skills? Life Pro Tip: Set a nearby shop as your home address in your vehicle's navigation...

259: Jolene Brighten | Finding Balance Beyond the Pill

Dr. Jolene Brighten (@drbrighten) is a nutritional biochemist, a pioneer in women's medicine, and the author of Beyond the Pill: A 30-Day Program to Balance Your Hormones, Reclaim Your Body, and Reverse the Dangerous Side Effects of the Birth Control Pill. What We Discuss with Dr. Jolene Brighten: The pros and cons of using hormonal birth control. How the birth control pill can change who you're attracted to and why there are higher instances of divorce when women go off the pill after getting married while on it. The problems that arise for all of us when scientifically accurate sex education isn't mandated in every school. How the pill can mask symptoms of serious health problems -- even infertility. What you can do to alleviate potential problems from using the pill, and when to know it's time to switch doctors who don't take your concerns seriously. And much more...

258: Dennis Rodman | The Worm Is Back

Dennis Rodman (@dennisrodman) (aka The Worm) is one of the greatest rebounders ever to play professional basketball, with five NBA championships under his belt. He's arguably just as well-known for his off-court antics, and his resume includes stints as an author, an actor, a reality star, a wrestler, and an unofficial diplomat to North Korea. What We Discuss with Dennis Rodman: How Dennis went from being a shy, neglected kid to a people-pleasing watch thief to a man who values independence and naysayer-defying personal expression above all else. Why the hustle of living as a homeless 19-year-old was more appealing than eating mustard sandwiches in the projects with his family. The volatile relationship Dennis has had with the media over the years, and how he decides who's worthy of his trust (and who's not) these days. Why, given his passing interest in basketball until a late growth spurt made him a contender, Dennis' self-taught and unique approach to world-class rebounding is particularly surprising. Marrying himself, being an early ally to the LBGTQ community, the pros and cons of fame, and risky birthday toasts to Kim Jong-un in North Korea. And much more...

257: Overcoming Accidental Accomplice to Fraud | Feedback Friday

You were recently and unknowingly an accomplice to fraud and credit card theft. You're a freelancer with a client who frequently used your services; you built trust, and then he asked you to transfer some money for him as a paid favor. Your poor judgment, kindness, and greed led to where you are now. Now the real credit card owners are issuing chargebacks, which are draining your account, and you don't have their money because you sent the money to someone else. What do you do? We'll try to answer this and more on this Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/257. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It’s filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details! You were unknowingly an accomplice to credit card fraud. Now the real credit card owners are issuing chargebacks, which is draining your account and you don't have their money because you sent the money to someone else. What do you do? Because you're in the entertainment industry, you've been getting nipped and tucked for years and you look much younger than your time on earth would indicate. Is it imperative that you tell your new significant other about your cosmetic procedures? Your future in-laws seem to be in a financially abusive relationship — with one taking more than their fair share from the other — to the point that you hope they divorce. Are you out of line by wishing for this? What do you do when a friend, colleague, family member, or loved one seems to be losing their marbles before your very eyes? You've been growing your network with great success over the past few years, which is awesome. What's not so awesome is worrying about how to balance the time you spend with these connections as your network grows. How can you keep quality job one in this case? Even when you know a recent breakup was for the right reasons, it's hard not to ruminate over where they are, who they could be with, what they're thinking, if they are thinking of you, and whether they'll ever return one day. How can you move on? You've legally adopted your wife's 16-year-old, but he's troubled. How do you get him to see the errors of his ways? How do you look at him without wanting to snap at him? How do you lead him to want to better himself, grow, and not just do the minimum? You're a 16-year-old, and your parents have strange beliefs. They make you eat weird things, they don't let you have social media or watch TV, and they don't let you go anywhere. It's hard...

256: Malcolm Gladwell | What We Should Know about Talking to Strangers

Malcolm Gladwell (@gladwell) has written bestsellers that are probably on your shelf right now, including The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, and What the Dog Saw. His latest book is Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know. What We Discuss with Malcolm Gladwell: Why, if we don't know how to talk to strangers, we invite conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world. Why the information we gather from face-to-face human interaction isn't as uniquely valuable as we think it is. Why television makes us worse at reading other people. Why we think we can tell if someone is lying, guilty, or deceptive -- and why we're almost always wrong. What determines the direction of Malcolm's projects, and how he researches and organizes the massive amount of information that goes into them. And much more...

255: Tommy Caldwell | The Push for the Path Upwards

Tommy Caldwell (@tommycaldwell1) has been called "arguably the best all-around rock climber on the planet" by National Geographic, and is the author of The Push: A Climber's Search for the Path. What We Discuss with Tommy Caldwell: How the confidence Tommy gained from climbing since age three transformed him from a shy, scrawny kid into a world-class athlete, author, and someone who can be interviewed on podcasts without fear. Tommy's tried-and-true formula for getting better at coping with scary, potentially life-threatening situations. How climbing is part endurance, part puzzle, and part chess strategy. The differences between sport climbing, free climbing, and free soloing. What it's like to get kidnapped by rebel extremists in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan when you're just trying to do a little climbing with your friends. And much more...

254: Is Exposing a Cheater the Right Thing to Do? | Feedback Friday

You recently discovered evidence that your friend of 12 years has a significant other who's nothing but a no-good two-timer. Is it your place to call this out? Is exposing a cheater the right thing to do even if it may ruin your friendship? We'll dig into this and more right here on Feedback Friday!

You recently uncovered dirt on your friend's significant other as a faithless, two-timing snake. Is exposing this cheater the right thing to do?

What should you do? New to your field, you'll be attending a networking event with other young professionals and industry veterans soon. What can you do to stand out and be remembered in a good way? You recently angered a friend by unknowingly poking fun at him for being single, but you're so embarrassed and upset with yourself for hurting him that you don't have the courage to apologize bravely and sincerely. How can you make things right? Someone you once considered close has in recent years become cold and judgmental, though you can't point to any event that would constitute a falling out. Others in your circle have noticed, so you're pretty sure it's not just you. What can you do to get to the bottom of this? What's the best way to cope with the psychological toll of starting and running your own business? (Thanks to Brian Clark from Copyblogger for fielding this one!) You consider yourself pretty genuine, so should you even be attempting to network with people you don't like just because they're decent connections within your industry?

253: Jamie Metzl | Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity

Jamie Metzl (@JamieMetzl) is a technology futurist and geopolitical expert, entrepreneur, media commentator, Senior Fellow of the Atlantic Council, and author of Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity. What We Discuss with Jamie Metzl: Why the speed at which genetic engineering is progressing is akin to Neil Armstrong stepping foot on the moon just six years after the first flight of the Wright brothers. Why the genetic traits that seem universally beneficial to us today may turn out to be as ephemeral (and useful to humanity) as powdered wigs and skinny jeans. The danger our species faces when we're able to selectively edit out genes that cause disorders without fully understanding their potential benefits or evolutionary purpose (e.g., recessive sickle cell disease carriers' resistance to malaria). Why China — run by a government that values the good of the country over the rights and privacy of its citizens — is better poised than the US and other Western countries to excel in the application of genetic science. Why addressing the values of equity and diversity today is important for avoiding genetic stagnation and greater friction between the haves and have-nots of tomorrow.

He is also an author, and his latest book, Creative Calling: Establish a Daily Practice, Infuse Your World with Meaning, and Succeed in Work + Life, is out this week. What We Discuss with Chase Jarvis: Some of the most common barriers to creativity and our pursuit of creative outlets or careers and how to work past these barriers. Why creativity is a habit, not a skill, and what we can do to cultivate this creativity with practice. How even Chase has experienced creative slumps, and what he did to dig himself out of them.

251: Help! I Have Two Years Left to Live. | Feedback Friday

Major life changes can be a mixed bag. On one hand, you're over the moon for landing your dream job. On the other hand, being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer and told by your doctor that you've got two years to live (at best) puts a bit of a damper on the celebration. You're determined to remain positive -- after all, you wouldn't be the first to beat fatalistic odds if this thing were somehow turned around, so there's no harm in being hopeful. You wouldn't say you're lost, but you do want to ensure that you make the most of whatever time you have left -- however long that may be. We can only imagine what you're going through, but on this Feedback Friday we'll do our best to offer how we might spend our time if confronted with the worst news possible -- but armed with your incredibly deep well of positivity.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? Reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details! How do you make the most of the time you have left with positivity when doctors have given you two years to live? People have preferences about looks, personalities, and religious backgrounds for their significant others. Is wishing they hadn't slept with 100 people before you a valid preference? What does it take for a successful and single 51-year-old woman who travels frequently to find someone with whom to build a family when the dating pool of quality candidates seems so microscopic? While a policy to never pursue romance with a professional connection has served you well in the past, you've met someone who makes you want to reconsider this policy. How might you make your interest known while remaining professional? You'd like to improve the relationship with your parents and the way you communicate. What can you do to make things better? If you wanted to start a new business online without using the topics of your current or past expertise, how would you pick a niche and establish your credibility? (Thanks to Brian Clark from Copyblogger for fielding this one!) While you'll be laid off soon, you're not worried because you have a generous severance and plenty of leads already. How do you network without people assuming you're just trying to get a job through their connections?

He is the author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. This is Nir's second appearance on the show (check out his first time here). What We Discuss with Nir Eyal: Why time management is quite literally pain management, and the time you plan to waste is not wasted time. How the issues caused by technology today aren't dissimilar to the issues caused by technology that vexed Aristotle and Socrates thousands of years ago. Why you'll probably find the popular advice to try digital detox as a way to rid yourself of technology's influence over your life about as effective as a fad diet. The damage caused by accepting the media's spin on technology as a pervasive addiction over which we have no control, and what we can do to get the best of these tools without letting them get the best of us.

249: Kobe Bryant | Dissecting the Mamba Mentality

Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) is most known for his 20 years on the basketball court as one of the game's most iconic legends. He now focuses his famous tenacity on running Granity Studios, an award-winning multimedia company devoted to creating new ways to tell stories around sports -- like Legacy and the Queen with Annie Matthew. What We Discuss with Kobe Bryant: What creativity and basketball have in common and what Kobe has carried from the court to his new business. Lessons Kobe has learned from people who are the best at what they do — from Taylor Swift to Jony Ive to Sean Penn to Kate Winslet to Larry Moss to Oprah to George R.R. Martin. How Kobe manages pressure in high stakes situations on the court and at the head of a creative content studio. The music that gets Kobe in the mindset he needs to excel at whatever he does. The importance of learning how to negotiate with yourself in order to achieve greatness, and how parents might help their kids develop this crucial skill.

You have a hostile coworker undermining you before management at every opportunity. How can you ensure facts will speak up for you instead of your coworker's toxic fabrications? Never fear! We'll show you how to navigate around a hostile coworker on this Feedback Friday!

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/248 On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: A Detroit vagrant in his 40s probably has enough problems to deal with. Can any good come from pressing charges against him because he tried (and failed) to steal your laptop? You have a hostile coworker undermining you before management at every opportunity. How can you ensure facts will speak up for you instead of your coworker's toxic fabrications? You hear of coworkers getting a promotion because they're "smart." What does it mean to be smart? Is being smart related to IQ? Is it related to emotional intelligence? Is it related to street smarts? Or is it a combination of all of these? As a business owner in a new country who's pioneered your own niche, how do you avoid a race to the bottom in pricing and remain high in quality as competition attempts to elbow into your turf? Is it ever good to name drop when networking? How can you continue to network and problem solve for your peers, but also start to lay the foundation of credibility with your accomplishments to build future -- and likely new leadership positions -- at your company? You reached out to someone in your chosen field, and you were referred to two others who have agreed to meet with you. How can you use the FEW technique effectively when these meetings happen? Is it worth the ROI to obtain expensive credentials (like an MBA) early in your career? Or is charging forward to gain experience more beneficial? Life Pro Tip: When you get a scammy/spammy phone call, tell them: "I think you have the wrong number...this is a government office." Alternatively, you can play this sound into the phone to possibly get removed from the system's rotation.

247: Chris Bailey | Hyperfocus Secrets for Better Productivity

Chris Bailey (@chris_bailey) is a productivity expert, host of the Becoming Better Podcast, and the bestselling author of two books about productivity: Hyperfocus, and The Productivity Project. In the time it's taken you to read this, he's probably written another. What We Discuss with Chris Bailey: The neurochemical reason our brains switch focus every 40 seconds (or less) and what we can do to recapture this hit to our overall productivity. Why giving yourself the time to unfocus productively with what Chris calls scatterfocus is as crucial to your progress as hyperfocus. How Chris harnesses scatterfocus to mull over and solve complicated problems without distraction. What Chris learned by deliberately allowing himself to enter a state of boredom for an hour a day for an entire month (and how he did so creatively). What the attention overload gap is, the problems it can cause, and why we're more susceptible to it than we probably suspect. And much more...

Wendy Behary (@donsanddivas) has been training professionals and supervising psychotherapists for more than 20 years, and is the author of Disarming the Narcissist: Surviving and Thriving with the Self-Absorbed. What We Discuss with Wendy Behary: What's the difference between someone who comes off as somewhat self-absorbed and a full-blown, clinical narcissist? Is clinical narcissism actually on the rise in the US? If so, what’s causing it? Does narcissism statistically affect men more than women, or is there just a difference in how they tend to express it? When a little bit of narcissism can be a big advantage. How to tell early on if you’re dealing with a bona fide narcissist, what you can do to remain your best self in their presence, and how you might possibly help them become their better selves.

245: Is Your Boyfriend Cheating on You with Porn? | Feedback Friday

When your significant other agreed to stop watching porn early in your relationship, you were relieved. But now that you've been dating for a few years and everything's otherwise great, you can't shake the feeling that they haven't quite given up porn and it feels like a betrayal. Is porn cheating? On this Feedback Friday, we do our best to get some perspective on this and much more! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/245. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Due to your own complicated history, your significant other's possible consumption of porn feels like betrayal. Is there a way to understand it from a different perspective? You spent six years training for your dream job only to be disqualified on a technicality. How can you motivate yourself to endure a similar time sink for another career when you know you're not getting any younger? As a business owner, how do you deal with the deadbeats who take advantage of your good nature and don't respect what you do enough to give you fair value for your services? How do people transition from the period of time they need to get experience in their field to the time they get paid for making use of that experience? Your significant other wants you to list the names of the people you've dated and slept with in the past, and then delete them all from your social media. Is this at all reasonable? You assumed you were having an email conversation regarding a business proposition with a man you know named Sam, but it turns out it's been with a woman named Sam whom you don't remember meeting. Now what? You're normally a great conversationalist, but when it comes to interacting with a superior, you find yourself worrying too much about accidentally saying the wrong thing and the conversation ends up stagnating. How might you overcome this? Life Pro Tip: Looking to cut the cord but dreading the inevitable call to the cable company where they badger you into not leaving? Tell them you're moving out of state where they don't offer services. Your cancellation call will take a fraction of the time.

What CRISPR is and how its eventual availability to hobbyists may ensure there's a mad scientist on every block.

How nonverbal communication and body language are used effectively in the courtroom. The court of public opinion and why it matters today more than ever.

Richard Clarke (@richardclarke) served for 30 years in national security policy roles in the US government and worked directly for three presidents. He is the host of the Future State Podcast and co-author of The Fifth Domain: Defending Our Country, Our Companies, and Ourselves in the Age of Cyber Threats. What We Discuss with Richard Clarke: How we're in constant low-grade cyber conflict with Russia, China, Iran, and other adversarial nation states -- and the forms this can take. Cyber crime was a $600 billion industry (one percent of global GDP) in 2018, much of it perpetrated by rogue nations like North Korea. How cyberattacks can be (and have been) used to wreak physical damage on infrastructure, and why we should take them as seriously as traditional weaponry. Is it the government's job to protect private companies against cyberattacks from foreign powers, or is it up to private companies to be responsible for their own safety? Why there's a crisis-level shortage of cybersecurity expertise coming out of our country's most serious tech schools, and where it's being found instead. And much more...

239: How to Ensure Your Authority Is Respected | Feedback Friday

At work, you're the youngest person on the team -- but you've also been there longer than anyone else. Your boss (who lives in another state) refers to you as his site lead, but you don't have an official title to reflect this. Your group needs the organization you know you can offer, but you don't want to come off as a power-hungry usurper. How do you get your boss to clarify your role -- to you and the team?

Is there a moral and/or legal obligation for Airbnb hosts to inform their guests when there are security cameras present -- whether or not they're recording anything? Are there any online courses or coaches specialized in social skills we would recommend for making conversation and connection easier? You're worried you don't come across as friendly. How can you improve your outer emotional reaction to people without feeling like you're overacting and being fake? Your boss communicates with you as if you're in a leadership position, but you feel like you have no authority. Do you need to ask him to clarify your role -- to you and your team? Is sharing photos useful when you're reconnecting with someone you haven't seen in a while, and is there networking value in alumni associations? You tend to forget the lessons you learn from audiobooks after a couple of months. What is the best way to memorize and apply the key takeaways of these books? What are the logistics of carrying on a successful long-distance relationship with a significant other whose sister doesn't like you and will probably undermine you from afar? You want to start a family, but your spouse's fertility issues may prevent this. Additionally, they're averse to therapy that might help lessen the impact or present options if you receive bad news. How can you be as supportive as possible? Life Pro Tip: Buy daily necessities in bulk when they're on sale, and pay close attention to unit prices!

This is part one of a two-part episode (part two coming soon). What We Discuss with Steven Hassan: How to use Steven's BITE model to tell if you or someone you love is involved in a destructive cult through control of behavior, information, thought, and emotion. The four types of destructive cults most prevalent today: commercial, religious, political, and self-help. How cults have weaponized the Internet and social media to fill their ranks and thrive as never before possible. Why it's the people who believe themselves immune to (i.e., too smart for) cult indoctrination who are most at risk of being targeted and recruited. How Steven has refined Ted Patrick's invasive cult deprogramming tactics of the '70s into a more effective strategic interactive approach.

236: How to Quit Your Dream Job Gracefully | Feedback Friday

You and your spouse recently decided to move back to your small hometown after giving the big city a try and deciding it's just not for you. But the problem is: you're going to have to give up the job you love, with benefits and more of a salary than you've ever made elsewhere. On top of that, the company is currently paying for you to finish school, so there may be legal consequences if you ditch them on graduation day. So in this Feedback Friday, we'll try to show you how to quit your dream job gracefully. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/236. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Is it unreasonable for you to tell friends and family that you don't support MLM companies, won't host their parties, and won't buy their products? Or is there a softer, more effective approach? You recently broke up with your significant other of 15 months, but feel guilty because they gave up their chance to start their MBA in anther city to be with you. Are you a terrible person who made a selfish decision? Your spouse wants to move the family out of the big city and back to your hometown, but it means leaving a job you love that has invested in your education. How do you gracefully part ways while causing the least impact and without burning any bridges? You did a digital detox after listening to our episode with Cal Newport, and want to limit your seven-year-old's exposure to devices after hearing our episode with Jonathan Haidt. How do you ensure you're not just making the wrong thing more appealing? You moved to another country five years ago and have been working menial jobs, learning the language, and taking classes for fun. Now you're ready to take your career seriously, but your resume might be hard to explain. How to proceed? You've lost your motivation, confidence, and self-esteem after quitting a job under a manipulative boss, and your dreams of landing a better job are stalled after submitting hundreds of applications with no calls back. How do you give yourself the kick-in-the-ass, tough self-love pep talk you drastically need? After a few years of accepting sponsored links and posts for your blog, you ended up owning your own link placement agency. This is now what you do full time and you earn more than you ever have before, but you know it's just a matter of time before Google smacks you down. How can you find time to start a more legit business before this happens? You would love to start your own podcast and YouTube channel. You have a great topic, lots of ideas, and contacts for people you could have on the show. Should you work on both the podcast and YouTube or just focus on one? What's the most interesting experience you've ever had? Safari? helicopter tour of a waterfall in venezuela? I'd love to know. Looking at a bucket list. The books on this are all lame because...

David Roeske (@roeske) is a plant-powered portfolio manager, pilot, runner, and the fourth person in the world to summit Mount Everest and another 8,000-meter peak in one trip without supplemental oxygen.

Why do people often die trying to ascend Everest -- even while surrounded by dozens of fellow climbers -- and what are the risks of trying to rescue someone in peril on the slopes of the world's tallest mountain?

His latest is This Is Marketing: You Can't Be Seen Until You Learn to See. What We Discuss with Seth Godin: Why it's possible to suffer from imposter syndrome simultaneously with entitlement. Why the market for media is so fragmented today, and what it means for content creators, advertisers, and consumers. Why you can trade for attention, but you can't trade for trust. The simple sentence you can use to remind yourself that you're not going to do better work by heeding your one-star reviewers. Why Seth considers the idea of hustling selfish and akin to bullying.

233: How to Keep an Abusive Ex out of Your Life | Feedback Friday

So your abusive ex has basically invaded your home and claimed squatter's rights when the police showed up to escort them away. What can you do to get them out -- and keep them out -- of your life forever? Listen to this Feedback Friday to hear our take on the matter! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/233 On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Should you be searching for a new job when you're in extended treatment for a serious medical issue? Is it fair to your current or potential future employer? After time off from your relationship to finish grad school, you're back with your significant other. But how can you get over the retroactive jealousy you feel? When you're the parent of a junior high schooler, how can you create opportunities for your kid to build social skills with adults? When your mentally ill mother gave your estranged sister her house -- from which she was then kicked out -- do you have a legal claim to at least part of that house? How do you retain clients -- without bashing your old employer -- when it's time to move on to a job that will be a better fit in your small, gossipy industry? Do you take on a higher paying, riskier job with a long commute to boost your debt repayments, or stay where you are where the growth is slow but more secure? You fired one contractor for shoddy remodeling work and had to hire others to fix it. What are your legal obligations regarding unfinished payment and equipment left behind? What can you do to keep an intrusive, abusive ex out of your life forever -- especially when they move into your house and claim squatter's rights when you try to kick them out? Life Pro Tip: If you're a student planning your career, look up postings for your entry-level dream job, find the skills and qualifications you'll need, then work backwards from there. Recommendation of the Week: I Am Mother Quick shoutouts to Corbin Payne, Esq. for helping with some of the legal stuff here, and Manny Dhillon!

What We Discuss with Daniel Goleman: The pros and cons of technology's influence on the way human beings connect in the 21st century.

230: How to Small Talk with Big Results | Feedback Friday

People rarely admit to enjoying small talk, but that's because so few of us are actually very good at it. Luckily, FEW is also a convenient-to-remember acronym for Facts, Emotions, Why -- a foolproof formula for leading small talk that can yield big results. Find out how in this Feedback Friday!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: When your friend repeatedly sends five-minute voice messages that a 10-second text would convey, how do you drive home the point that ain't nobody got time for that? Congrats on quitting social media! But now what do you do with your spare two- to five-minute intervals you used to spend tweeting or reading Facebook? Glad you asked! How can somebody in a quaint but underdeveloped town find improv and behavioral classes to improve their skills and up their game on personal and professional fronts? Is it opportunistic to leverage interest other companies have shown in recruiting you when it's time to negotiate for a raise -- even when you planned to stick around anyway? Even though you consider yourself social and find your spouse's friends a delight, they seem to think you don't like them. How can you dispel their concerns and let your real feelings shine through? You've broken up with your significant other of four years for once again lying to you, but you feel guilty because they've been in therapy for the past six months trying to be better. What next? Your usually calm and cool significant other will be taking the bar exam soon, and a lot of things are up in the air until it's passed. How can you express support without getting in the way? When you've lost trust in your business partner, what steps can you take to ensure you're not on the hook for 100 percent of the company's debt if things go even further south? Life Pro Tip: Drowning in debt from that unexpected hospital visit? Medical billing departments will often accept a fraction of what you "owe."

Oliver Bullough (@OliverBullough) is a journalist, a regular contributor to The Guardian, and author of Moneyland: Why Thieves And Crooks Now Rule The World And How To Take It Back. What We Discuss with Oliver Bullough: How corrupt leaders pilfer everything from wildlife reserves, banks, and even national healthcare systems. How this type of graft corrupts society and leads to other crime and unrest -- such as terrorism and flawed elections. How corruption filters down the economic food chain, harming children and those who can't defend themselves. How dark money can be used for a host of unsavory purposes, and why it's nearly impossible to uncover it because of shell corporations, passports for sale, and the fact that dark money knows no borders. What we might do to begin reeling in this lopsided power structure from its offshore roots in a way that benefits the fair-playing majority. And much more...

227: How to Communicate with Stinkers and Deadbeats | Feedback Friday

When you've got coworkers who literally stink enough to make your olfactory system protest with tears of sadness and deadbeat roommates who won't pay rent and try to convince you to let their online romantic interests move into your very real space, you need to listen to this Feedback Friday!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: You try to be positive, but when your longtime coworker is negative, pessimistic, petty, and literally stinky, how obligated are you to put up with it? You try to be positive, but when your longtime roommate is a deadbeat trying to move their online romantic interest in, how obligated are you to put up with it? You're an effortless jack of all trades, but a master of none. Should you be more motivated to excel, or just grateful for what you have and enjoy life? How do you get your extended family to understand that you and your spouse's busy entrepreneurial lifestyle makes free time a valuable resource? As a freelancer, how do you manage (mentally and financially) the slow growth periods of the year? You literally have OCD and can't stand being touched by strangers. How do you handle the would-be huggers and handshakers you meet without being rude? As a young worker in a relatively low-paying position, how do you request a raise if one isn't given or negotiate a slightly higher one if offered? Thanks to DNA testing, you've discovered your mother's been lying to you about the identity of your father for 40 years. How do you cope with this bombshell? Life Pro Tip: Before giving a previous job as reference, have a friend pretending to be a potential employer call them asking about you — this way you avoid derailing your job hunt.

Why otherwise good people might find themselves on the wrong end of the justice system. How someone prepares to do time inside a federal prison -- and what they can expect once they leave. How easy it can be for people to rationalize criminal behavior and lose control of their moral compass. Why Justin counts his 18 months behind bars as one of the best experiences of his life.

You've been considering deleting your Facebook account for quite some time, but a close relative seemed shocked you would consider such a thing -- as if deleting Facebook would somehow delete you from the face of the earth.

You have a severe fear of public speaking and hate yourself for performing poorly when you've given it a try. How can you overcome this? You'd like to keep two ex-flames in your network, but they can't seem to stay in contact without trying to rekindle a relationship you don't want. Should these connections be salvaged? What do you do when you feel like you must choose between a life you want to live or the less desirable life that could help your parents financially? Do you ever have to choose between taking some magical leap or playing it safe when it comes to entrepreneurship? How do you ensure the people you befriend on LinkedIn are quality connections rather than opportunistic junk mailers? Are you obligated to endure the presence of an aggressively transactional networker in your community? How can you delete your Facebook account without falling off the face of the planet?

What We Discuss with Bryan Johnson: Why humanity needs to co-evolve with artificial intelligence if we are to survive as a species. What future literacy is and why it's crucial for understanding the role humanity will play in the decades to come. The steps being taken to comprehend what makes biological systems fail in order to improve their capabilities.

Matt McCarthy (@drmattmccarthy) is an assistant professor of medicine at Weill Cornell, a staff physician at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and the author of Superbugs: The Race to Stop an Epidemic. What We Discuss with Matt McCarthy: How antibiotics are abused on a large scale by industrial agriculture, prescription-happy doctors, and mysophobic hand washers. Why antibiotic abuse is resulting in the fast-track evolution of once easily vanquished bacteria into superbugs from which we have no known protection. How herd immunity works, and why you may be at risk for contracting a once-eradicated disease thanks to anti-vaccination propaganda. Why the FDA approval process takes so long for new drugs to safely come to market, and how this hinders innovation in a profit-driven pharmaceutical market. How genetic editing through new CRISPR technology may be our best hope for quickly reacting to rapidly adapting superbugs.

221: How to Meet the Parents Without a Meltdown | Feedback Friday

You and your significant other of six months planned on using your parents' vacation home for a romantic weekend getaway together, but now your parents have decided to join you. The problem: your parents and significant other haven't met yet. You're confident they'll get along great, but you want to make sure you set up the occasion for the best chance of success. Here's our take on how your significant other can meet the parents without a meltdown. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/221. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: What's the right way to introduce your significant other to the parents when you'll unexpectedly be vacationing together soon? After basically being raised by wolves, how can you build a healthy cleaning schedule or routine? Is it just about learning how to establish new habits? Your best friend's ex-girl didn't used to be yours, but you'd like it if she could be. What are the pros and cons of exploring the possibility? You have no interest in having kids, so when is the right time to bring it up in the dating cycle so you're not wasting anyone's time or being presumptuous? How might Jordan calculate the way he asks a guest questions during an interview to prompt answers that haven't been given on a dozen other podcasts?

220: Deep Dive | The Right Way to Cultivate Abundance

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive into what it takes to cultivate the mindset of abundance that seemingly makes generosity possible, and how to overcome the evolutionary blips in our programming that make it so counterintuitive. "And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi: Why the mindset of scarcity is your survival mode default that urges you to see the world as a zero sum game and hoard your resources accordingly. What you can do to reconcile this scarcity mindset with one of abundance that seemingly permits you to give generously without remorse. How you can begin practicing the behavior of generosity even before you've fully sold yourself on the belief of abundance. The many ways that tiny repetitions of generosity act to strengthen the muscles of abundance with giant gains. A smattering of good advice for cultivating abundance, and (we hope) an abundance of even better advice for making generosity second nature. And much more...

218: How to Renegotiate with a Bait-and-Switch Employer | Feedback Friday

When a longstanding policy — whether official or not — was a serious tipping point in the decision to accept your current job, are you right to feel like you've gotten the old bait-and-switch treatment when it's axed nine months after you started? If so, how do you engage leadership to renegotiate terms? We'll tackle this and more on this Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/218. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: If your not-so-close family members are unapologetically crummy to you and your fiance, is it time to cut them out of your life? When you don't click with people your own age, what are the pros and cons of dating someone 17 years older than you? Nine months ago, you chose your job over other offers because it had flexible perks that are now being axed. How do you engage leadership to renegotiate terms? While networking in your field, you meet the same people at different events. The problem: you remember them, but they don't remember you. How can you stand out? You want to leave factory life behind and relocate closer to your kids, but you're 40 and don't have the skills for a different job. What's your best next step? Even though you're curious about your own genetics, are you right to be wary of the potential privacy concerns that arise from taking a home DNA test? You're speaking at a conference on behalf of your company where many industry leaders will be attending. How can you best network during your time offstage? You've lost respect for a friend who would rather waste their money than repay an old debt. Is this resolvable, or is it time for the friendship to move on? Life Pro Tip: Don't just thank someone when they do something for you. Tell them what it means to you. Example: Rather than saying “Thanks for the ride,” say “Thanks for the ride! You saved me a bunch of time. You saved me a bunch of phone calls. You saved me a bunch of effort. I really appreciate it!” A quick shoutout to Tomas Conefrey for his kind donation!

217: Matthew Schrier | How to Survive in a Secret Syrian Terrorist Prison

Matt Schrier is an American photographer who survived seven months as an Al-Qaeda captive in Syria before escaping, and the author of The Dawn Prayer: A Memoir. What We Discuss with Matt Schrier: How Matt Schrier was captured by Al-Qaeda just 45 minutes away from the border on his way out of Syria in 2012. How making his captors laugh on day one of his captivity got him special treatment from a usually unforgiving crowd. What Matt did to survive and plan an escape in spite of an unhelpful, self-sabotaging cellmate. Why Matthew feels betrayed by the FBI and the US government for putting intelligence gathering over the safety of Americans imprisoned by terrorists. Why, even after becoming the first American to escape from Al-Qaeda and his feelings of betrayal from his own government, he has no regrets about going to Syria in the first place. And much more...

Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) is a writer, comedian, producer, TV host, activist, and the author of five consecutive New York Times bestsellers -- her latest is Life Will Be the Death of Me...And You Too! What We Discuss with Chelsea Handler: Finding the line between mood enhancement and paranoia-generating abuse when it comes to cannabis. How a DUI at age 21 led to Chelsea's entry into the world of standup comedy, and what she was really trying to get from her search for attention. As someone who's never been afraid to quit a job she's grown tired of doing, what really matters to Chelsea? What's the difference between authentic generosity and generosity that just feeds the giver's ego? Why is Chelsea writing books, doing standup comedy, and working on television projects when she was sure she'd burned out on doing all of these things not long ago? And much more...

215: How to Invest Wisely and Crush Student Debt | Feedback Friday

There's lots of stuff in this one about investing wisely and eradicating debt -- especially student debt -- thanks to some professional help from our all-star, money-ninja accountant Matt Rzepka, along with the usual questions about everything else we get here on Feedback Friday. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/215. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: You judge people quickly, won't suck up to authority, and have a reputation as being unapproachable. What's really going on, and are you stuck this way? You're a frugally living 37-year-old doctor swimming in med school debt. Should you put all your money into saving and investments or toward extra loan repayment? For someone with student loan debt just starting out in their career, what is the best move for financial freedom? Should you pay off debt, invest, build savings, or acquire assets? Early in med school with many years of debt ahead, is it still worth it to be locking your money up and committing to your monthly index fund? Your network connection is great at opening doors, but lackluster in work ethic. Is there a way to inoffensively compensate them for opening those doors without involving them in the actual job that results? Are you really offended when an entertainer (say, a podcaster) openly expresses their political views, or are you just offended when their political views seem to differ from yours? How can you stop giving in to your need for instant gratification and become a productive member of society when you lack discipline and think the world's ending anyway? Life Pro Tip: If you volunteer to give up your seat on an overbooked flight, don't just take the first offer. Tell the gate agent, "Toss in another $200+/- and I'll go for it." They'll almost always agree, because a willing volunteer is worth it. And if they offer you a meal voucher, ask for a day pass to their first class club instead. It will have food plus other amenities! Recommendation of the Week: The Dawn Wall A quick shoutout to Malak Firaas from (the nation of) Jordan!

214: Gabriel Weinberg | How Mental Models Boost Super Thinking

Gabriel Weinberg (@yegg) is a serial entrepreneur, angel investor, founder of privacy-protecting search engine DuckDuckGo, and coauthor of Super Thinking: The Big Book of Mental Models. What We Discuss with Gabriel Weinberg: What are mental models, and how can they be applied to make your life run more efficiently and effectively? How mental models used primarily in physics, economics, biology, and math can be easily adjusted for everyday decisions. What a South American tribe that can only count to three and our own grade school experiences with multiplication tables can teach us about the power of math as a mental model. Why you should be second-guessing your natural intuition during the decision-making process, and how you can use mental models to do it. First principles versus conventional wisdom for approaching familiar situations in an innovative way. And much more...

213: LeVar Burton | Storytelling the Enemies of Education Off

LeVar Burton (@levarburton) is an award-winning actor famous for iconic roles from Kunta Kinte in Roots to Geordi La Forge on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the host of long-running PBS series Reading Rainbow and the LeVar Burton Reads podcast. What We Discuss with LeVar Burton: How LeVar went from pursuing a vocation in the priesthood to acting in a miniseries that changed the national dialogue about slavery forever. What LeVar's Roots experience taught him about the power of television for education and engagement and how it paved the way for his involvement with Reading Rainbow. The questions LeVar asks parents who want their kids to read more. What it was like to act in Star Trek with the most expressive parts of his face covered and a head full of technobabble vocabulary. How LeVar avoided melting down in spite of international attention from an early age and what he's done to stay relevant over 40 years in show business. And much more...

212: How to Live with Unwashed Loved Ones | Feedback Friday

Are you a germaphobe if it creeps you out when your spouse and in-laws don't wash their hands after using the bathroom, or is your disgust actually reasonable and justified? If getting divorced and burning down the house aren't options, we'll tell you how to live with unwashed loved ones on this Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/212. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Thanks to an accidental glance at their phone, you suspect one of your parents might be cheating on your other parent. What do you do now? You've noticed your significant other and in-laws don't wash their hands after using the bathroom. As a germaphobe, how do you reconcile love with the disgust you're feeling? Though your trustworthy significant other insists the condoms you found in their car were bought before you agreed to stop using them, it's bothering you. Should you let the issue go? How can you deal with the anxiety of starting your own business and accepting the risks and potential setbacks while giving it your all? How do you intentionally work your way toward connecting with super influential people like Reid Hoffman when you're just getting started in your networking efforts? Your stay-home spouse admitted recently that they are lonely. How do you foster friendships as an adult -- especially when you have infants to take care of? The VP of your company wants to advance you, yet worries you may be too young or inexperienced for a higher-up position. What can you do to convince them you're ready for the position? You have a somewhat manipulative boss who is taking a new job and wants to bring you along. Should you take this as an opportunity to continue your professional relationship, or is it just time to move on from his erratic reign? Life Pro Tip: If you can't decide between two items of clothing (like two different jackets), have someone take photos of you with them on (front and back), and then look at the photos.

211: Arthur Brooks | How Loving Your Enemies Can Save America

Arthur Brooks (@arthurbrooks) is a social scientist, Washington Post columnist, president of the American Enterprise Institute, and author of Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt. What We Discuss with Arthur Brooks: Why happiness relies on being mindful of what you have right now instead of comparing yourself to others who have what you want. A disheartening statistic: One in six Americans has stopped talking to a family member or close friend entirely because of politics. How gratitude can be used as an anesthetic for contempt. Why a healthy society elevates authoritative leaders in search of cooperation for the greater good over coercive leaders who bully their way toward short-term results.

What We Discuss with Howie Mandel: Why Howie believes it's important for us to be open about our struggles no matter what they are. How being impulsive helped Howie understand the power of "now" and set him on his current career path. Why Howie believes more of us would be ahead and happier if we learned to live in the moment instead of fretting over consequences.

209: How to Trick Your Teenager into Following Good Advice | Feedback Friday

You'd love for your teenager to listen to this show and learn some life advice by proxy instead of having to endure it in real time like you did, but it seems unlikely. Why are teenagers so stubbornly opposed to parental wisdom? We can't say for sure, but we do have some tricks for making them follow good advice against their own bratty proclivities.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: When your main squeeze is giving you the turd degree for having one crappy day, perhaps something else stinks about your relationship. Should you dump them? Your professor drops your final grade if you don't bring a doctor's note for absences, but doesn't suffer consequences when they miss a class. Should you bring up this double standard? Your significant other failed classes early in school thanks to social anxiety, but has since improved. Is it dishonest to prop up a low GPA on a resume by specifying the higher GPA of their major? How do you impart what you've learned from this show to your teenager, who is unlikely to listen to the show directly? Is it worth cultivating one-sided friendship with people who seem only interested in talking about themselves and their problems? Life Pro Tip: It might seem common knowledge, but make proper backups of all your data — not once a year but at least once a month.

What We Discuss with Reid Hoffman: Why surviving a horrible childhood isn't a prerequisite for developing grit -- and what you can do to learn resilience. What it takes to gather the data points necessary for unpacking the secret subtext of indirect feedback. How we can steer into good crises to strengthen relationships and better our circumstances. What running Dungeons & Dragons and RuneQuest campaigns taught Reid about complex human motivations and the power of heroic collaboration.

Reid Hoffman (@reidhoffman) is a cofounder of LinkedIn, investor at Greylock Partners, host of the podcast Masters of Scale, and coauthor of Blitzscaling: The Lightning-Fast Path to Building Massively Valuable Companies. What We Discuss with Reid Hoffman: Why creating the best products and services on the market won't mean squat if you don't have the network to get the word out about them. Reid's flexible planning framework that adjusts navigation to suit the unexpected path rather than the imagined destination. How to know when you're informing your intuition with the best available data or just procrastinating to avoid making important decisions.

Getting a stalker to drop their obsession with you is seldom as simple as just telling them to go away -- if anything, that might just make the problem worse. So what can you do? In this Feedback Friday, we'll try to show you how to disappear from an unstoppable stalker without escalating an already bad situation.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: How do you get a mentally ill stalker -- who seems to track you down no matter how many precautions you take -- to leave you alone for good? What should you do when your long-term significant other is an alcoholic in denial who regularly drinks themselves into becoming someone you don't like? You had a breakup because you couldn't commit to marriage after 2.5 years. You want to wait until you're 100 percent ready, but when will that happen? With Jordan in Silicon Valley and Jason in Los Angeles, how do we seamlessly make it sound like we're in the same room for Feedback Friday episodes? After multiple attempts to make it work with your Narcissistic Personality Disorder diagnosed ex, how do you truly move on and work on yourself?

205: Deep Dive | What to Do When Your Purpose Starts to Suck

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive into how even the most driving purpose can wear you down, why meaning doesn't always align with happiness, and what you can do to recalibrate your purpose when you're discouraged by the obstacles you face in its pursuit. Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/205 What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi: Why meaning doesn't automatically create happiness, and happiness isn't required to create meaning. Why, if you're doing it right, pursuing your purpose should make you miserable from time to time. The key upsides to embracing the difficulty of your purpose and how it drives you toward your best work. How to focus on the micro over the macro in order to keep you connected to your purpose when you're having your doubts. Understanding that discipline is knowing when to think about certain issues; denial is refusing to think about them at all. And much more... Does your business have an Internet presence?

204: Scott Galloway | Solving the Algebra of Happiness

Scott Galloway (@profgalloway) cohosts Pivot with Kara Swisher, publishes the No Mercy/No Malice newsletter, is a professor at NYU Stern School of Business, and is the author of The Algebra of Happiness: Notes on the Pursuit of Success, Love, and Meaning. What We Discuss with Scott Galloway: How American priorities have shifted from a society that creates millions of millionaires to one that idolizes individuals worth the GDP of Norway. Why the opportunities Scott and earlier generations enjoyed are no longer available to the majority of the population today. How Scott can predict if a young person will be successful by the time he or she is 30 (and what you can do to give yourself an edge if you're not on the path). Why striving for work/life balance and following your passion aren't ideal strategies if you aspire toward great wealth. The good news: why you don't have to have great wealth in order to live a rich and happy life. And much more...

Shane Snow (@shanesnow) is an award-winning entrepreneur and journalist, author of Dream Teams and Smartcuts, and the blogger who wrote How to Debate and Make Progress by Curbing Intellectual Dishonesty. What We Discuss with Shane Snow: What is intellectual dishonesty, how does it undermine meaningful debate, and what can we do to recognize it in ourselves and others? Why the cognitive diversity of differing perspectives and open-mindedness of intellectual humility make for healthy discourse. The six recurring problems in discourse: dodging, logical fallacies, deception, dirty debate, little accountability, and false endings. What we have to gain by rooting out intellectual dishonesty when it appears in ourselves and others.

200: How to Deal with Retroactive Jealousy | Feedback Friday

You're having issues with retroactive jealousy regarding your significant other's past. You've tried to find resources to help you cope with this, but most of what's you've found feels gimmicky with little to no real information or exercises aimed at helping you overcome these feelings. In this Feedback Friday, we'll try to lend a helping hand. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Your parents are first cousins, and it's a secret not many know -- including your significant other with whom you're building a life. Are you obligated to share this? Creeps offering to rub your realtor girlfriend's feet for $500 isn't the side hustle she was hoping for; how do you ensure she's safe when meeting clients in empty houses? You love your job, but you don't love the corporate culture and lengthy commute. When is the right time or the wrong time to trade one company for another? How do you go about asking for the raise you know you deserve (especially as more tasks are being assigned your way) without jeopardizing your current position? You've been using our free Six-Minute Networking course, but have a few questions about some of the details. We're here to help! Is Better Help cheaper than in-office therapists, and is it covered by traditional work health options? How do you evaluate it from a budget priority standpoint? You're trying to prove your value during your company's review period, but one of your overseers seems closed-minded to your process. What's your best move forward? Even though you don't consider yourself possessive, you have intense bouts of retroactive jealousy regarding your partner's not-that-sordid past. How do you move past it? Pro Tip of the Week: Instead of saying 'my ex,' say 'a guy/girl I dated.' 'My ex' insinuates that person is still a part of your life. Recommendation of the Week: Chernobyl on HBO A quick shoutout to Liam from the UK! Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us? Drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com!

Ramit Sethi (@ramit) is the author of I Will Teach You to Be Rich, now in its second edition with over 80 pages of new material, new insights, and new tools for mastering money and living your rich life. What We Discuss with Ramit Sethi: What has changed between the first edition of I Will Teach You to Be Rich and the recently published, heavier-by-80-pages second edition. How the idea of a "rich" life differs from person to person. Thinking critically about bank accounts, investing, engagement rings, marginal tax rates, interest rates, budgets, real estate, and prenups. Using the concept of money dials to maximize spending in the areas of your life that count. Why you have a huge advantage if you're able to change your mind quickly in the face of new evidence.

Mark Manson (@iammarkmanson) is a blogger, entrepreneur, and author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life and his latest, Everything Is F*cked: A Book About Hope. What We Discuss with Mark Manson: How acknowledging the uncomfortable truth of human existence's meaninglessness can ultimately serve as an argument against nihilism. What the paradox of purpose tells us about the stress that accompanies an overwhelming abundance of choice. How the feeling brain and the thinking brain might seem at odds, but they actually conspire to guide our values (for better or worse). Why your identity will stay your identity until a new experience acts against it, and how you can change your values to fit your current narrative instead of one that's outdated. What the God value is and how it aligns your hierarchy of values by way of the feeling brain. And much more...

Moby (@thelittleidiot) is a musician, singer, songwriter, producer, animal rights activist, and author of Then It Fell Apart. What We Discuss with Moby: How Moby's illustrious heritage made it imperative for him to write his own memoirs instead of passing the job off to a ghostwriter. Why, in his early fifties, Moby has not one but two memoirs under his belt. What it was like to grow up as a latchkey kid, impoverished and on food stamps, in the wealthiest city in the United States. Why Moby "was so happy" during the time he lived in an abandoned factory on the crack-infested side of Stamford, Connecticut. How Moby felt at the realization that he was making more for an hour-long performance than his New York City executive grandfather had made in a year. And much more...

194: How to Be the Best Podcast Guest in the West | Feedback Friday

Being a podcast host has its own set of dos and don'ts, but what does it take to be the best podcast guest in the west -- and east and all points in between? What will ensure that you're the podcast guest who gets invited back time and time again rather than thrown onto the booking agent's "do not call" pile? We've recruited our friend Bobbi Rebell of The Financial Grownup Podcast to give us the skinny. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/194. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Is undergoing cosmetic surgery to correct a physical trait that makes you insecure 24/7 a worthwhile investment or submission to excessive vanity? As a manager, you love your company, salary, and benefits, but your passion isn't developing others to do their best. Without a college degree, what are your options? One parent died from being in a medicine-shunning cult, and the other has a history of being abusive toward you. Should the loss of one automatically mend your issues with the other? Is it reasonable to put your therapy visits on hold during a new job's six-month probationary period for better chance of retention? You're facing prison and losing your job for being pulled over with less than a fifth of a gram of weed in your car (even though you weren't under the influence). How can you find the motivation to move on? You left a part-time job you loved for a full-time job that pays more but doesn't enchant you in the same way. How do you know if you made the right decision? When you're a guest on someone's podcast, how do you ensure they love you and invite you back -- and maybe make you a regular? Our friend Bobbi Rebell of The Financial Grownup Podcast has answers! You're friendly and nice on the inside, but your face and body don't translate that message. How can you come across as less chilly when trying to network? You got a no-strings-attached monetary gift from a kind person in your wind ensemble to repair your instrument, and you have $50 left over. What's the protocol for gracefully returning it? Life Pro Tip: When your power goes out, pop your phone open and search for Wi-Fi in the area. If the list is empty or shorter than usual, then it's not just you that lost power. Another tip is to get a cheap UPS on Amazon to power your cable modem and Wi-Fi router. That way if the power does go out in your neighborhood, you can get online and figure out...

Mimi Ikonn is a serial entrepreneur best known for Luxy Hair and Intelligent Change, a YouTube influencer with 2.8+ million subscribers, and the author of The Bingo Theory: A Revolutionary Guide to Love, Life, and Relationships. What We Discuss with Mimi Ikonn: How Mimi and her husband Alex keep themselves and their relationship real and grounded under the daily scrutiny of millions of people.

The two stages by which you develop mental resources: experience and conversion to lasting change. How you can build resilience by focusing on experiences rather than conditions.

191: How to Out a Psycho Ex for Public Safety | Feedback Friday

Outing a psycho ex who once violently assaulted you might seem like a mission of personal vindication that you'd like to feel is beneath you. But what if you've recently encountered them working in close proximity with people you care about? Is it your responsibility to out that psycho ex for the sake of public safety? If so, how do you do it safely? We'll discuss this and much more in this episode. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/191. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Should you tell your uncle that one of his employees tried to strangle you seven years ago because the wife he was hiding found out about your fling? You want to be as open and honest as possible, but you often can't make sense of your own thoughts, let alone explain them to others. How can you better express yourself? Has Los Angeles turned your once-favorite sibling into a monster, or are there other factors at play dictating why you can't get along anymore during family visits? How can you learn to be more understanding and less stubborn? How do you deal with a friend who dominates conversations, lacks self-awareness, and is overly sensitive? Since you often have to travel for work, how do you negotiate with your boss on staying a few extra days for vacation? You make excellent money and live a lavish lifestyle, but your work is unfulfilling and most days are miserable. You can't take time off to “find” yourself, so what can you do? What's the right way to tell your religiously devout family that you are no longer a true believer and won't be getting married in a church? Life Pro Tip: Make a great impression at a brand new job by documenting the whole training process in detail — this is often invaluable to small companies and startups.

188: How to Get out of Credit Card Debt | Feedback Friday

If you've gotten yourself into credit card debt, it's hard to see a way out. Minimum payments can be as much as rent and won't always whittle down the debt because your interest rates are probably too high. With thanks again to Ramit Sethi (@ramit) of I Will Teach You to Be Rich, we'll show you how get out of credit card debt more easily than you probably think possible. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/188. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: You're in more credit card debt than you'd like. Should you tell your family about it so you don't feel like you're hiding something from them? While we're on the topic of credit card debt, we share some tips from Ramit Sethi for getting that debt under control (Script found here). After surgery, monitoring, and an almost clean bill of health, how can you encourage your spouse that every pain experienced now isn't cancer? How do you deal with blame and taking responsibility after the breakup of a long-term relationship and the fallout of shared property? When visiting another country, we've advised hiring a local to hang out with and guide you around. But where can you find such a guide? How can you find a suitable, non-nuclear solution for you and your long-time partner to travel together, given different work circumstances? Going from employee to entrepreneur in an industry where name equals credibility, how do you keep your name safe if your business fails? So you want to get involved in politics or some other high-profile career? You might want to scrub those old social media posts; here's how. Your timing for knowing when to interject in a conversation could be better. How do you improve it? Life Pro Tip: Keep a $100 bill folded in a side compartment of your wallet in a doggie poop bag.

David Smalley (@davidcsmalley) is an actor, comedian, and host of the Dogma Debate podcast, in which he -- as an atheist -- regularly discusses religion and politics with preachers, pastors, comedians, and people who hold different world views. What We Discuss with David Smalley: How David Smalley went from spiritual believer to secular atheist. Why regularly challenging your own beliefs helps inoculate you against manipulation by others. The tactics car dealers and clergy use to corral people into compliance. What happens when atheists cling to faulty beliefs with the same fervor once reserved for their disavowed religions. How to debate in a way that might actually change someone's mind rather than angering them to the point of doubling down on their initial position. And much more...

185: How to Get Hired Like a Boss | Feedback Friday

Ever wondered how to get hired like a boss? Ramit Sethi (@ramit) of I Will Teach You to Be Rich joins us for this Feedback Friday to illustrate something called The Briefcase Technique, which you can use to powerfully demonstrate value to connections in your network and potential employers. As Ramit says, "The way to stand out is to not just tell people what you would do, but show them." And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/185. On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: How do you keep your mother from bringing her awful date -- who also happens to be your father -- to your best friend's wedding? You could retire early and enjoy time off, but you don't want to get stuck finding a new job if you get bored in a couple of years. What to do? You have questions and concerns while building a new house. How do you avoid ticking off the contractors to the point of sabotage? How do successful people balance between work they're passionate about, families they adore, and outlets they need to function at an optimal level? The dream job you landed at Harvard would be even dreamier if it paid well enough now to make a dent in your student loans. Should you stay or go? When the real nature of your job doesn't reflect what you thought you signed on for, how do you approach a contract renegotiation gracefully? How do you distinguish yourself from the competition and get hired like a boss or make new network connections stick? Ramit Sethi joins us to illustrate an almost magical tactic called The Briefcase Technique. What are the pros and cons of starting a new relationship when you describe yourself as being in an "awkward" stage in life? Life Pro Tip: Save your money on clothes, but find a fantastic tailor. A well-fitting wardrobe of thrift store finds looks way better in person than most high-end clothing. Recommendation of the Week: The Kindness Diaries (Something to ponder: How long does Leon Logothetis get stuck at gas stations waiting for people he can ask for a few drops in the tank?)

What We Discuss with Naveen Jain: How Naveen and his siblings all became wildly successful professionals in spite of growing up financially and educationally underprivileged. How to know when a billionaire really becomes successful. Why it's the thought processes -- not the habits -- of highly successful people you should be emulating if you want to succeed. Why Naveen believes sustainability is not sustainable, and why we have to create more of what we need rather than consume less of what we have.

You're still young, but your mindless six-figure job is wearing on you. Would it be irresponsible to drop everything and do something else?

181: Deep Dive | How to Stop Blaming Other People

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive into why the impulse for blaming other people is a phenomenon familiar to most of us, and how we can curb it in ourselves without defaulting to always taking the fall when it’s undeserved. What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi: Why the externalization of blaming other people when you're at fault robs you of being truly in control of your own life. Why the internalization of blaming yourself when you're not at fault is just as toxic as externalization. How you can use the Accountability Spectrum to find an appropriate balance between externalization and internalization. What true accountability requires of you and what it gives you in return.

Now, let's dive in! On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: What can you do when your parents are hoarders with health issues who get enraged when you try to help them? Your calmness under stress seems like a positive trait in a medical professional. But are your peers right to call you disinterested? When you dislike idle chit chat, how do you respond to the small talk question "How's business?" without being uncivil? Is becoming a police officer because you want to help people a good idea for someone who's never really dealt with trauma, or could you be throwing yourself in the deep end? How might an over-55 sales professional re-entering the job market go about starting a consulting career? Jake from Intuit stops by to help us cope with financial crises around tax time. How do you beat feeling envious of others who maintain the discipline to see their self-improvements through? When you're serious about networking, should you regularly cull connections on LinkedIn with people you don't really know?

Beau Lotto (@beaulotto) is a world-renowned neuroscientist who specializes in the biology and psychology of perception. He is the author of Deviate: The Science of Seeing Differently. What We Discuss with Beau Lotto: Why our brains evolved to experience the world differently from reality.

176: Feedback Friday | How to Cope with the Burden of Being the Ugly Friend

Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in! On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Is it wrong to be mad at your recently widowed parent for proposing to a rebound fling just six months after the funeral? You're sick of picking up the slack for your 70-year-old coworker who chooses not to retire. What should you do? How do you rebuild your business when your last 10 years has suddenly pulled out from under you? We might have some advice. As a job seeker, when is the right time to disclose that you have regular medical needs that require creative scheduling? We've talked about the wrong reasons to move, but what are some of the right reasons? When do the pros outweigh the cons? How do you shake the feeling of playing second fiddle when you're pretty sure you're the ugly friend in a two-person dynamic? You seem to be the only one in your neighborhood concerned about environmental apocalypse. How do you lead by example without blowing a gasket? What meaningful gifts can you get for mentors -- or anyone else for that matter -- who already seem to have everything they need? Life Pro Tip: When responding to advice, say "You're right" instead of "I know." It shows that you're actually listening to someone, that you care about what they say, and give them credit for trying to help.

175: Brian Scudamore | How Failure Can Be Your Key to Success

Brian Scudamore (@BrianScudamore) pioneered the industry of professional junk removal with 1-800-GOT-JUNK? at age 18, scaled that success into three more home-service brands, and is the author of WTF?! (Willing to Fail): How Failure Can Be Your Key to Success. What We Discuss with Brian Scudamore: How Brian turned a trash removal business that began with a $700 investment into an international, multimillion dollar service franchise. The $29 gimmick Brian used to prove to his franchise partners they didn't need to spend big bucks on traditional marketing tactics to get their small business known. Why high school dropout Brian didn't sell his business and retire in his 20s -- even when competitors offered him millions of dollars. Brian's WTF (willing to fail) philosophy that has allowed him to harness the smaller failures along the way to avoid ultimate catastrophe in the long run (with examples). Practical exercises you can use -- for entrepreneurship as well as personal enrichment -- to similarly WTF your way forward. And much more...

A.J. Jacobs (@ajjacobs) is a journalist, lecturer, human guinea pig, and best-selling author; his latest book is Thanks a Thousand: A Gratitude Journey. What We Discuss with A.J. Jacobs: What's the difference between true gratitude and positive thinking? How acknowledging the role of luck in our lives allows us to have compassion for and empathize with others. The lifelong lessons that stick with A.J. long after the conclusion of his unique experiments. Why gratitude leads to happiness -- not the other way around. If possible, why you might consider thanking your parents on your birthday. And much more...

173: Feedback Friday | How to Make Life Purposeful for the Terminally Ill

Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in! On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Recently, your daughter's 15-year-old friend got pregnant. Should you keep your daughter away from her? With inoperable stage four pancreatic cancer, your father may not have long to live. How can you fill his remaining time with purpose? How can you be comfortable around someone who seemingly reads your mind by body language, microexpressions, and tonality? While you want to open up around others, social events have you in the corner hiding inside your shell. How can you coax yourself out to mingle? You're in your 30s and you can keep working locally at a safe, consistent job that pays well, but you're really yearning for a chance to live and work abroad. A few years from now, which choice are you most likely to regret not making? The company where you've worked for 15 years has expanded and you'd like to keep working for it -- but on the other side of the country. Should you keep this to yourself until your plans are more concrete, or should you tell your local office boss as soon as possible? You're moving from California to the UK on a plane and you're wisely taking your cat with you in the cabin. But she can be loud when she's nervous; what happens if you wind up sitting next to someone who hates cats? What's the protocol? You knew someone who could have helped you redirect your career momentum, but you've let the connection lapse and now you feel awkward about reconnecting. Is it too late to reach out? Life Pro Tip: Whenever you recall a painfully embarrassing memory, imagine the Seinfeld theme playing over it. Recommendation of the Week: Bohemian Rhapsody A quick shoutout to Jamie Sparks!
