I listened to 3 hours of Tim Ferris so you wouldn't have to

On this episode of the Audience podcast, Matt talks about a 3-hour episode of Tim Ferriss’ podcast, where he and guest Chris Hutchins talk about how Tim grew The Tim Ferriss Show into what it is today. The episode is a powerful one but pretty long, so Matt highlights some of the most important bullet points for you. Using clips and commentary, Matt dives into the ten biggest lessons from that episode.

You might have heard of Tim Ferriss from his bestselling book, The 4-Hour Workweek. You might have heard his name when Fast Company listed him as the “Most Innovative Business People'' or when he was listed as one of Fortune’s “40 Under 40.” At his heart, he is an early-stage tech investor (some examples being Uber, Facebook, Shopify, Duoling, Alibaba and over fifty more), an author, and the host of The Tim Ferriss Show, which was the first interview-style business podcast to get over 100 million downloads. He knows his stuff.
