Even the best podcasts have shitty episodes. Have any favorite, cream-of-the-cop, memorable ones?

Here’s one with comic-book creator Todd McFarlane. He distills comic books down to three main skills: artistic ability, storytelling ability, and ability to meet deadlines. Also goes into being rejected 350 times (and learning from what they criticized him about).

Johann Hari on the modern struggle with focus:

An example I liked:

A mask might help, but it isn’t a solution to air pollution. Likewise, things like meditation or a better diet help focus, but aren’t solutions for the pollution of attention-media like Instagram, TikTok, porn, YouTube, shock news, etc.

Interview is about personal and systemic steps.

Any Ward Carroll ep with Justin Bronk. If you're into Ukraine or military stuff in general, they're fascinating. with specific facts and analysis. He also sticks to what he knows, and Ward doesn't interrupt his explanations. They're on YT.

Rick Beato's talk with Pat Metheny. I'm not into PM at all, in fact I'm not really into music theory or history, but this one was gold. Pat shares insights about the creative process and some of the influences that have shaped him. On YT.

Hidden Brain, Episodes 1 and 2 on Reframing Your Reality.

The guest, psychologist Alia Crum, focuses on the power of mindsets. Specifically, in the first episode, on the power of reframing stress as a performance booster. After listening to this podcast, I tried this out in big, scary waves and found it to work exceptionally well.

Neil Pasricha on simple, practical tips to increase happiness and decrease stress.

One tip is to start each day, before checking your phone, by writing:

I will let go of…
I will be grateful for…
I will focus on…

I’ve done that daily for over a week and it’s been a good change. Integrated some other ideas from this podcast as well.

Chess Grandmaster Maurice Ashley (interview starts at 4:35).

Ashley is an engaging story-teller and I pre-ordered his new book which comes out next week. This podcast is a few years old, and includes how genuine trash-talk can put you in flow and the importance of loving what you teach:
