The James Altucher Show

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 who forged their own paths, found financial freedom and harnessed the power to create more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

Secrets Unveiled: The Power of Hidden Truths with Andrew Gold

Secrets Unveiled: The Power of Hidden Truths with Andrew Gold

A Note from James:

 Today, we've got Andrew Gold back on the podcast. He's an investigative journalist and the author of "The Psychology of Secrets: My Adventures with Murderers, Cults, and Influencers" This book is riveting—every page dives into the intriguing world of secrets. What are secrets? What are the big secrets we know of? How do you tell someone’s secrets? From murderers to cults to influencers, Andrew’s insights are fascinating. He also runs the YouTube channel Heretics, which I highly recommend. But for now, let’s get into our conversation about the nature of secret...

Hippie to Heavy Hitter: John Mackey’s Journey of Love, Life, and Capitalism

Hippie to Heavy Hitter: John Mackey’s Journey of Love, Life, and Capitalism

A Note from James:

Today, we have a remarkable guest, John Mackey, the founder of Whole Foods. Whole Foods is my go-to place for groceries, whether I'm shopping in-store or ordering via Instacart. John’s story is fascinating. He started as a young, hippie-ish guy living in a commune and working in a food co-op. One day, he thought, "Hey, I could do this," and opened his first store, Saferway, humorously named to poke fun at Safeway. Over time, this venture grew into the massive empire we now know as Whole Foods, which was eventually acquired by Am...

Scaramucci's Survival: Peak Performance and Resilience from Wall Street to the White House

Scaramucci's Survival: Peak Performance and Resilience from Wall Street to the White House

A Note from James:

"I've known Anthony Scaramucci for about 15 years. We had breakfast 15 years ago after his first book came out, and I had written a review of it in the Financial Times. At different times, we even thought about working together, about 10 or 15 years ago. He's always been a very interesting guy.

Of course, I know him from the hedge fund world, but much later, he got involved in the political world. He became the Communications Director of the White House under Donald Trump for 11 days before he got fired. He later came...

Quantum Quandaries and Cosmic Contemplations with Sean Carroll

Quantum Quandaries and Cosmic Contemplations with Sean Carroll

A Note from James:

This may be the smartest guy in terms of raw intelligence that I've ever had on the podcast. Sean Carroll is a great physicist and a great writer of physics. He attempts to explain quantum mechanics and the difference between quantum mechanics and classical physics. I make some analogies about how this applies to my personal life and pitch an idea that I think could win the Nobel Prize. If you listen to this podcast, you will know more about quantum mechanics than before.

Sean Carroll is a professor living in...

Revolutionizing Education with AI | Khan Academy founder Salman Khan

Revolutionizing Education with AI | Khan Academy founder Salman Khan

A Note from James:

Oh my gosh, I've been wanting to have this guy on my podcast for literally ten years, ever since I started. I am so impressed with him, and he speaks about a subject near and dear to my heart. Salman Khan, Sal Khan, is the creator of Khan Academy, which was really the first big online academy. It focused on teaching math, coding, and other subjects, effectively reaching people who went through years of school without truly mastering these topics. Khan Academy has had a profound understanding of education and has become a...

Mastering Mastery: Unraveling Learning with Scott Young

Mastering Mastery: Unraveling Learning with Scott Young

A Note from James:

"Get Better at Anything: 12 Maxims for Mastery." I first met Scott Young nearly ten years ago when he completed all the requirements for a four-year MIT degree in computer science in just 12 months. He's an expert at learning things quickly and recently authored the book "Get Better at Anything: 12 Maxims for Mastery."

I had the opportunity to sit down and talk with him, as I'm always interested in learning and mastering new skills. Scott Young excels in this area, and we discuss it thoroughly in this episode.

Mastering the Constitution with AJ Jacobs!

Mastering the Constitution with AJ Jacobs!

A Note from James:
"The Year of Living Constitutionally." I mentioned this episode last week during our discussion with AJ Jacobs, but here we delve into his book, "The Year of Living Constitutionally." AJ not only researched and wrote about the Constitution, but he also spent a year living as if it were 1790, adhering to the U.S. Constitution literally. He even carried a musket and applied to be a pirate in Congress, referencing Article One, which grants Congress the power to commission pirates.

The book is filled with facts, debates, and information about the newfound...

Living By the Books | AJ Jacobs on Writing Methods

Living By the Books | AJ Jacobs on Writing Methods

A Note from James:

 AJ Jacobs, who has an upcoming book, "The Year of Living Constitutionally", he's a fascinating writer. He basically, instead of just doing research on a topic "Oh, I'm going to do research on the Constitution, I'm going to do research on living healthy, I'm going to do research on the Bible," instead of just researching something and writing a book, which I consider to be boring, he has a completely different way of exploring a topic, and it turns out,and not by accident, it turns out that this is the formula for wr...

Mastering the Art of the Interview | Polina Pompliano Returns!

A Note from James:

Learning how to be a good interviewer is crucial in life, not just for reporters or podcasters, but because many life situations resemble interviews. Whether you're applying for a job, hiring someone, or meeting someone new at a party, it's beneficial to gather as much information about them as quickly as possible. Additionally, it's important to leave a good impression if that's your goal. Being a skilled interviewer is therefore essential. I'm grateful for my podcast, which has allowed me to study the techniques of some of the best interviewers. 

Recently, o...

Tim Ferriss: 10 Years Later...

A Note from James:

 I want to congratulate my friend Tim Ferriss on the 10th anniversary of his podcast. It is such an excellent podcast. It's one of the few podcasts I regularly listen to and I highly recommend it if you don't already listen to it. He's been a great guy, and a great friend over the years. We don't always keep in touch, but I always count him among my long-distance friends, and congratulations to him on having the 10th anniversary of his podcast.

I remember when he was first considering the podcast, h...
