James Altucher interviews the world’s leading peak performers in every area of life. But instead of giving you the typical success story, James digs deeper to find the “Choose Yourself” story—these are the moments we relate to… when someone rises up from personal struggle to reinvent themselves. The James Altucher Show brings you into the lives of peak-performers: billionaires, best-selling authors, rappers, astronauts, athletes, comedians, actors, and the world champions in every field, all ...

Blake Mycoskie is the founder of TOMS shoes, known for its "buy a pair, give a pair" model. But when Blake started he knew nothing about shoes. Or building a company. “It was just a project,” he said. And yet it became a massively successful and has donated tens of millions of shoes to people in need. I asked Blake how he got the courage to start a…

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 And yesterday's information can become outdated tomorrow.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

Check out the full post and learn what I learned at jamesaltucher.com/podcast. Thanks so much for listening! If you like this episode, please subscribe to “The James …
 
The world economy is full of uncertainties. People are furloughed. Or scared of being furloughed. Or fired. Or scared of losing their job. Security isn’t real right now. So we need other plans. I called up Matthew Berry, the first-ever Fantasy Sports analyst. Matthew basically invented a new industry and career entirely back in 2005. I wanted to le…
 
Facts are only facts for a period of time. This is true in science, in history, in economics, everywhere. But sometimes we forget that information changes. We get stuck thinking it’s stagnant. And then WE become stagnant. But if you can look at facts and information from an alternate perspective (through the lens of a rocket science), you’ll know h…
 
Focus, passion, pivoting, astral projection, and why I MARRIED.... Robyn just 62 days after our first date. Plus, how I would make money if I was 22 again.

I promise this episode will make you smarter. I've wanted Matt Ridely on the podcast my whole life. He's a major influence on my brain. Every time I read his books, I physically feel my IQ increase. His new book is “How Innovation Works: And Why It Flourishes in Freedom." And I'm already on my third read of it. Here's a break down of what we talk a…
 
Yancey Strickler is hte founder and former CEO of Kickstarter. And he’s the author of a great new book, “This Could Be Our Future,” which gives a new values-driven way of looking at entrepreneurship. Which is particularly important in this day and age of lock-down when consumerism is beginning to change in a major way. In this episode, he spells ou…
 
Business is changing. And so is investing. Risk is higher these days. And people want predictions. But no one really knows. You can’t predict something that’s never happened before... You can only look at what’s possible. So I called up Sam Parr. He founded The Hustle, an 8-figure company that started with an email. And NOW The Hustle has a new arm…
 
Everyone remembers Ray J from the song "One Wish." His voice is beautiful. And he's well known. But at some point, he took a turn. Music stopped being his main focus. " I felt like there was something else out," he said. In this episode, he talks about what he found to fulfill his creative and entrepreneurial itch. AND we also sit with Matt Clayton…
 
Part of enjoying life is taking care of your brain. We're all starting to realize life is short. That's a side effect of this virus. So I wanted to invite Dr. Andrew Huberman (one of the world's leading neuroscientists) back on to tell us how to create happy chemicals in our brains (naturally) and feel good more often. Here's a list of what we talk…
 
John McAfee is a billionaire on the run from the government. He owes millions in taxes. And has strange and somewhat dangerous opinions on government, coronavirus, public safety, etc. (you’ll see what I'm talking about). But some of his insights are worth debating. You’ll hear what a totally insane person running from the government thinks about th…
 
The government doesn't innovate. But Coronavirus is forcing it too. A lot of things have to change. Right vs. left. Voting stations vs remote voting. School lunches that lead to high rates of diabetes and sickness. Healthcare costs, and more. Congressman Tim Ryan is one of the few names I see proposing bills progressively in this time. He's sharp. …
 
Joe De Sena worked for the mafia. He learned a lot from them. But then he realized you can make more money doing good. So he switched lives. Which is something a lot of people want to learn. I asked how he did it. (You’ll hear his process). And you’ll hear how he developed Spartan Race, the world's leading. obstacle race. He's also the author of "S…
 
The White House called up Mark Cuban. They want him to help figure out how to open the economy back up. And give people their jobs, their income and access to opportunity.

I wanted to know how people listening can look for new opportunities to make money in this evolving economy. I also wanted to ask Carl about coronavirus. Because he had it. And survived. AND i…
 
This is my networking hack: I dig through my inbox. Find an email chain from eight years ago (that I probably never responded to). Then I write back as if no time has passed at all. People love it. They forgive you for disappearing. And they're glad you got in touch. But that's my ONLY networking tip. Jordan Harbinger is the complete opposite netwo…
 
Everyone says, “Flatten the curve.” But there are two curves. We all know the main one: the spread of coronavirus. The other curve is the spread of psychological viruses; fear, anxiety, worry and panic. We’re all experiencing Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. We started out attacking each other for basic items like toilet paper, then we moved on to conn…
 
Right now, the Federal Reserve is pumping trillions of dollars of stimulus into the economy. So what does this mean? How are small businesses doing? When will people go back to work? And how does this impact the economy? I called up Jim Mckelvey. He's the co-founder of the multi-billion dollar business, Square. AND, more importantly, he’s the Deput…

So I'm posting this interview with Cal Fussman about reinvention. Because it's light-hearted. And helps you find your direction within. In this podcast, you'll hear creative ideas to learn and create …
 
AI used to be, what most people thought, was the biggest threat to our economic security. Now it’s coronavirus. BUT one of the side effects of coronavirus is an acceleration of our future. Meaning that what used to seem like a “potential” truth (like robots stocking shelves, factories being automated, remote work, and so on) is all here faster than…
 
I don’t want to regret how I spend this time. But I also don’t want to pressure myself to reinvent or write a book or create a business. I want to find the medium ground. How can I give to people who are struggling? Stay safe? And not get lost in fear? One way is to tackle the myths. Myths = fear and stupididity. So I sat down with my wife, Robyn, …
 
We're in lockdown. And we don't know how long it'll last. And we don't know what will come next. Mini lockdowns? Personal lockdowns? More social distancing? We don't know. So I wanted to put together a framework for how I should act during this lockdown... So I ask Jim Kwik, a brain coach with praise from Will Smith, Alex Rodriguez, Stan Lee, Quinc…
 
Dr. Andrew Huberman is one of the world's leading neuroscientists. He understands what causes anxiety, depression, stress, joy, freedom, love... And what we can do every day to reduce the chemical reactions that hurt us. And create more of the brain chemicals that help us. And you can trust his experience. Because his experience includes teaching N…
 
We all want to know what the future looks like. "What's the new normal?" I asked Professor Scott Galloway, who's insights and research have been known to prove markets and trends for years. He said, "I would argue that this doesn't change any trends. It just accelerates them." So we talked about the changes happening NOW. And how they'll evolve ove…
 
Other than eating and breathing, persuasion is the most important skill you could have. Because a pre-skill to persuasion is the ability to understand yourself and other enough to create a chain reaction of changes in life. Persuasion is what sets us up to have agency in the world. And there's a specific, 5-step framework that lets you understand h…
 
Dan Carlin hosts the #1 history podcast, “Hardcore History.” It has a cult following. For a lot of reasons: 1. Dan has an incredible voice. 2. his research is so weird and extensive and detailed. And 3. Dan is known for breaking rules. He went around the standard path. And decided that he didn’t need to have a history degree or some pre-approved "c…
 
People are starting to lose jobs. And gigs. And become uncertain. Uncertainty brings up fear. Which is a pandemic on its own. I keep saying, "Prepare. Don't Panic." And so do my guests. So today, I interview economist Tyler Cowen. I ask him about the stimulus package, the job market, inflation, deflation, supply and demand, what the world will look…
 
We could all use kindness all the time. But we need it now more than ever. I asked Lewis Howes for his advice. But we recorded this a few weeks back. Before the world's pandemic. I'm glad I'm releasing it now. Because it's the best time to remember how to love people. And then DO it. And if you like this episode, make sure to check out Lewis' podca…
 
Medicine is changing everyday. We're all seeing this unfold right now. In front of our eyes. Some of the changes seems unreal.

How is the current pandemic reshaping the future of med…
 
How do we know when something is wrong with us? I want to understand the testing process we have for COVID19. I want to understand "symptomatic" cases vs. "asymptomatic" cases. And who's data should we trust? So I called David Sinclair. He runs The Sinclair Lab at Harvard Medical School and is the New York Bestselling author of “Lifespan: Why We Ag…
 
I saw this line “How about some good news for a change.” It was the first line in an article by Peter Diamandis, Founder & Executive Chairman of XPRIZE. The article is on his website, diamandis.com and I highly recommend checking it out. I emailed him as soon as I saw it. “Come on my podcast.” And he did the next day. Because the world needs good n…
 
For better or for worse a lot of people are not working right now. And that’s going to be a serious issue in the economy. So, for anybody listening, I really stress this one thing: focus on making the right investments everyday in YOURSELF. Right now, with all this extra time, we get to learn who we are again. We get to learn new skills online. And…
 
Everyone believes their own opinion. Fact based. Or not. We're all (somehow) political "experts." But the truth no one really knows anything. It's all speculation. But you put your opinion to the test if you get skin in the game. Which is possible now thanks to John Phillips who co-founded the site PredictIt.org. I go on there to place bets on ever…
 
"Don't believe the numbers you're seeing." This is Dr. Marty Makary's big message. The number of cases and deaths are radically underreported because a) we don't have tests, b) some countries are hiding their data, c) some people aren't showing symptoms yet, but have coronavirus and more. But listen. This podcast is not about fear. It's about knowl…
 
Jim McKelvey is the co-founder of Square and the founder of Invisibly. I wanted to know HOW he got his direction. Because we all have ideas.

And how to …

In this chaotic time, we need a bizarre story. - Jeffrey Epstein went to dinner with some old school comedians. He told them a story about Trump. The story could be false. But if it’s real, it’ll be the more bizarre story you’ve heard about Trump. Period. - "Carl Allen has nine side hustles. He doesn’t work in any of them. They all just create cash…
 
The macro formula for building a business with meaning looks like this: real relationships + belief + combining experiences + fixing a problem + adaptability + (I could keep going). But these are just words. Bill Glaser, founder of Outstanding Foods and my new favorite vegan snack (pigless pork rinds) has stories. He’ll tell us how convinced a hand…
 
Any effective leader in the world has learned the art of frame control aka these two skills: perception & persuasion.

Learn…
 
There are new Coronavirus updates! I was sitting at home, and I am nervous just thinking about them.

Now he’s teaching people how they can do it without investing your own money or having any experience at all. Consider this an introduction to a new, richer life. And Carl has a …
 
I'm not political. But I'm interested in studying human behavior, history, marketing, what drives decision making, the power of money, perception, persuasion... that's what an election is. It's a soup. So I brought Phillip Stutts back on the show to dissect what's going to define the 2020 election. He's worked on 3 winning presidential campaigns, s…
 
Kamal went to Nepal to live with monks. But most people can't do this. So I had him come on to teach me what they taught him. I recorded this episode BEFORE Kamal's trip, though. So we can compare. Before and after. Here's the before. Later, we'll hear how the monks taught Kamal how to feel less anxious. And escape the mental pain that comes from o…
 
I get these emails all the time, "How do I find my passion? Is it too late? Am I a failure?" Every age asks this. Because we all want to know what's next for us. We all want a second act. Or third. Or fourth. And it's possible. So I sat down with my wife, Robyn, and talked about the exercises that each of us have tried. What works. What doesn't. An…
 
Nik Wallenda is a daredevil. He’s broken 11 Guinness World Records and should be dead from all of them. But he’s not. His skill is unexplainable. It’s part acrobat. Part circus. Part mastermind… You might’ve seen him on a highwire. BLINDFOLDED. While crossing the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, between buildings in Time Square or Chicago and more. I w…
