My guest today is holistic health and happiness coach and extremely advanced soul, Sah D’Simone.
You’ll be hard pressed to find a more genuine and authentic spiritual seeker than Sah.
Also, if you’re interested in nutrition and health for the mind/body/soul Sah is available for consults and sessions. Sah is incredibly awesome and I encourage you to learn more about him on his website - http://sahdsimone.com.
This is a short episode post today because I just had a baby (well, technically my wife Alexis did) so my life is insane right now.
That said, enjoy the episode!

My guest today is the one and only Duncan Trussell.
I sat down with Duncan on his tres fancy tour bus after the Washington, D.C. stop of his “You Are God” tour.
Some podcasts need explanations. This one does not.
Also, rest in peace, Prince. Godspeed on your sweet magical journey.

Shout out to Mikey Kampmann and Johnny Pemberton for being hilarious and Cora Keegan for being a most gracious tour bus host.
My guest today is meditation teacher, musician and all around creatrix, Biet Simkin who’s based out of NYC.
Biet is a wonderful example of someone who’s let her inner life guide her external life (is there really a difference?) which is working out pretty pretty great for her. As you’ll hear in the episode Biet is also an incredibly genuine and love-filled person. Coincidentally, my favorite type of person!
Biet is also leading guided sound meditations at Further Future a music and lifestyle festival taking place April 29 through Sunday May 1, 2016 at the Moapa River Indian Reservation near Las Vegas, Nevada. More details inside the episode but Further Future is going to be an amazing time and experience and if I didn’t have a baby due right when it was taking place I’d be attending.
Find out more about Further Future here: http://www.furtherfuture.com/
Topics Discussed in This Episode
- The blessing of Biet’s tragic upbringing
- Biet’s father, Grigori Simkin
- Overcoming depression and addiction
- Biet’s musical career
- Changing your mind to change your life

My guest today is friend, business owner and marijuana lifestyle advocate slash activist, Davis Clayton Kiyo.
Davis and I went to the same high school but didn’t really know each other too well back then. Since ye olden days he’s embarked on a career centered around one of my favorite things in life: marijuana.
You may remember my last guest, Ben Kovacs, is a co-founder of a company called Myster. Well, Davis is the other co-founder.
You’ll hear it in the episode but Davis has a creative and energetic spirit that is palpable and contagious. Davis also relays a very interesting story about a near death experience someone he knows had and how that altered his view of reality and death.
We talk about a whole host of topics including:
- Davis’ parents being Donald Trump supporters
- Bringing more awareness into your life
- The pros and cons of marijuana use (mostly the pros)
- Normalization of marijuana in culture and society
- An interesting legal situation Davis is in right now
- Hacking the voter system
- The knowability of the universe
- Science vs Spirit
- The dogma of religion
- Changing reality with your thoughts

My guest today is artist, photographer, awesome person and host of the Artist Decoded podcast, Yoshino.
I got tuned into Yoshino and his podcast by Michael Donovan (who is an inter-dimensional networker and knows pretty much the coolest people you can know) and I’m very happy I did.
Yoshino and I only spoke a couple of times before the podcast but you’ll hear we hit it off immediately.
Not only is Yoshino a creative powerhouse but his focus on intention, service and bringing value to people’s lives is infectious.
- Breaking down limiting beliefs and mental barriers
- Being of service and creating value
- The intersection of art and consciousness
- Starting Artist Decoded
- His work as a photographer
- Creating your own world in the midst of many other cultural worlds
- Alan Watts
- Bruce Lee
My guest today is Lama Tsomo who happens to be one of the most direct, down to earth, yet extremely wise and fun people I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with.
She’s also a bonafide Lama (ordained by Tulku Sangak Rinpoche) in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. She’s also an author and co-founder of the Namchak Foundation and Namchak Retreat Ranch in Missoula, Montana.
Her new book, “Why Is The Dalai Lama Always Smiling?” is absolutely incredible and I highly recommend picking up a copy. It’s one of the best books on Buddhism for westerners that I’ve come across( and I’ve read a lot of books on Buddhism for westerners.)
My guest today is holistic center pioneer and all around Dharma good guy, Ralph White.
Ralph was the first program director for the Omega Center up in Rhinebeck NY as well as one of the founding members of The Open Center in NYC.
We discuss a whole bunch of topics in this episode so here are some bullet points to make it easy for you:
Topics Discussed in This Episode
- The rise of holistic centers in the U.S. and beyond
- Holistic Hustlers
- The Importance of Discernment
- Journeying to Tibet as a Westerner
- Science of the Spirit
- Rudolf Steiner
Ralph turned me onto Rudolf Steiner at the end of this episode and for that I’m eternally grateful.
Ralph just wrote a memoir, “The Jeweled Highway: On The Quest for A Life of Meaning” which is fantastic and I finished it in four days so maybe check that out why dontcha? Also, I’m giving away a copy of Ralph’s book for this week’s Synchronicity book giveaway contest.

My guest today is creative professional extraordinaire, Paul Jarvis.
Paul is founder and launcher of a plethora of online products for creative professionals including Creative Class, Chimp Essentials, Project Prescription, 4 WordPress Themes and his weekly emails The Sunday Dispatches.
Paul also has his own podcast called, The Freelancer, which you 100% should check out because he drops wisdom bombs like they’re going out of style on a regular basis.
Paul currently resides in the woods of Canada, on an island with his wife Lisa and their gang of pet rats. He rocks cheap beer toques and meditation beads (typically at the same time). He also has way more tattoos than you. (I ripped this little about part from his site so that’s how I know he has more tattoos than you.)
I stumbled across Paul when a friend of mine recommended I check out his Chimp Essentials MailChimp course which was hands down one of the best courses I’ve ever taken. The course is on hiatus right now but will be back soon. I’ll let you know when it’s back because it is great.
Just from taking that course I got the sense that:
a) Paul really knew what he was talking about
b) he genuinely seemed to care about the people he was speaking to
c) he seemed like a really awesome person I’d like to talk with.
So, I hit him up and he responded and we set up a time to chat and this podcast is the fruit of that (very easy to do) labor.
Topics Discussed This Episode
- Being Honest and Authentics
- The Value of Introspection
- The Similarities Between Being a Musician and a Freelancer

In addition to being a creator par excellence Paul is also a musician and I asked him for a couple of music recommendations. At the time he was enjoying Side Data (a Canadian band) and the Kruder and Dorfmeister Sessions Volume 1 (which is one of my favorite mix compilations of all time).
Paul also recommended Oliver Burkeman’s, “The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking”.
Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with Ben Kovacs who I’m gonna call an actualizer-extraordinaire.
Ben is a good old-fashioned renaissance man. In addition to working his day job at Twitter, Ben just founded Guardian Gym which aims to help urban populations and at-risk youth via martial arts. Ben also is co-founder of a marijuana accessory and lifestyle company called Myster. How’s that for diversity?
In addition to practical tips about how he’s been able to cultivate success in his life, Ben has an especially refreshing perspective on work, life, helping others and synthesizing all of those thing together.
