I promise no ads, ever: Most podcasts have frequent interruptions with filler music and ads that irremediably degrade the conversational flow—only to trick you into buying mediocre products. This show doesn't have any ads, and never will.

Just press play and instantly listen to inspiring chats that don't steal your attention to promote stamps, mattresses, or toothbrushes.

Over 40 hours are already available, with new talks released periodically. If you are a self-learner who likes new perspectives, this is the podcast for you.

Praise from Real Listeners

Sim's style is new. Reminiscent of programs that touch on some relatively profound issues, while his humor brings to mind the spirit of well-done late night shows. I am not aware of any other interview shows that could bring depth and humor together in this way.

These candid interviews demonstrate the beauty in the many failures that it takes to build up to success.
