At more than 200 episodes and 5+MM downloads, Jake Sasseville’s long-running talk show is a catalyst to the heart and mind. It features inspirational interviews with masters, heart-searching conversations with presidents of fortune 500 companies and NBA teams and highlights the common thread of what makes us all profoundly human. Widely considered as one of the most influential interviewers of his generation (and the youngest TV host in late night TV history on ABC), Jake’s style is inquisitive, humorous and heartfelt. He’s open about weight issues, watching his brother die when he was 17, failing in dozens of business ventures during his 20s, his recovery in 12 step programs — and his most recent move to Maui, the launch of his Institute and his global real estate endeavors.

Esther Perel is one of my favorite people to interview. A psycho-therapist, with 30 years of experience in her New York clinic, is a provocateur, and specialist in areas of relating and relationships, infidelity and the psychology of love. 

This interview almost didn't happen -- the interview picks up as Esther enters our studio in New York, just off a plane from Mexico, where we had to helicopter her off a mountain. She and I met after I was cheated on many years ago. I have dreamed of this sit down since.

 

This is Esther like you've never heard her before.

LIVE EPISODE from Maui Tea Ceremony. 

Gabe Marihugh, Tea Master and Doctor of Divinity, Puerto Rican's own Laura Michelle, Reiki Master Jay Huitt are the tea regulars and me enjoy 2 hour tea ceremonies every Monday at the Sacred Garden on Maui. 

Sound crazy? It is. The tea is from the foothills of Asia, stronger than ever, and we talk about life, love and as is the case with tea, people show up throughout the two hours. Characters from around the world in a podcast. Rogan's 3+ hour podcast inspired me to try this and do it unedited.

Simon Crowe is one of these superhuman characters in the world -- not because of all that he has accomplished, but because of how he shows up in conversation and in the lives of those around him.

Although our conversation started out about Liberia, West Africa, its history, and his work there and around the world with coaches and peak performance specialists, it's Simon's detour into his relationship that is most revealing, and in the process, instructive, for the rest of us looking for, or being OK with being in, Love. 

Simon Crowe: “If we hold onto it, it means we don't actually think we can keep it in our lives. By letting go (of my relationship) there was so much more of it that instantly became available.”

Thank you Simon!

Razi Wilson is a photographer who cut her teeth at Vogue and Newsweek in New York City.

She's my neighbor on Maui and we're BFFs. She's half Persian, married to an Australian, a Baha'i, a mom of three and generally is one of the kindest, friendliest people I know. She's a riot and substantial, too. 

I love introducing my friends to others, so this episode is all about introducing you to my friend Razi!

Chinese American pioneer Amy Hall is head of Social Consciousness and Responsibility for Eileen Fisher and has been since the early 90s.

Freshly out of a career in her 20s as a fundraiser, a self-proclaimed introvert and newly divorced, Amy found her way to the Eileen Fisher clothing brand and started employing strategies around corporate consciousness, a foreign language in fashion and big business at the time.

I'll let Amy Hall tell you the rest.

When Beyonce's "Lemonade" came out, Yvette Noel-Schure, her 20+ year publicist, admitted that she saw an opportunity on a global level for a generational healing to begin happening.

In her first-sit-down conversation with the millennial (Elaine Welteroth, Editor in Chief of Teen Vogue) she paved the road for without even knowing it decades as Editor of Black Beat Magazine in 1986, Yvette shares intensely personal stories, while Elaine goes in-depth on her creative process, for Teen Vogue, and now her TV credits including Grown-Ish, the power of surrendering instead of hustling, and what this next generation of women leaders and thinkers need to understand about foundational values before pursuing dreams.

Love these women, and am so grateful for their time, energy and collective wisdom.

Elaine Welteroth, FMR Editor in Chief of Teen Vogue, was in diapers when Yvette Noel-Schure (publicist to Prince, Beyonce, Adele, etc.) was paving the way for her. 

Elaine, at 29, became the youngest editor in Conde Nast history. She grew up in California to what she calls a hippy dad and a soulful mom.

Yvette, born in Grenada, came to the United States in the 70s and went to City College of New York. 

This is an incredible moment where two women, of two generations, one who paved the way for the other, and both who have tapped into spirituality and kindness as their paths to success, meet and have a conversation for the very first time.

I am so excited for you to hear this!

Part II of my interview with Dave Kayani is all about the straw that often breaks the camel's back.

We don't always realize what it is, our role in it, or how to fix it -- but inevitably, when a friendship is ruined, there's two involved and there's usually only one way to fix it: step into it together.

OK, so Trump won. So to re-direct my energy, I pulled 3 of the best 10 minute stories I could to help re-direct all of us to what's really important. 

Gabe Marihugh is one of the best gurus I've met on Maui who has the ability to synthesize culture and what's going on on our inside. 

Leah Komaiko is the children's book author of 25 best-sellers and had a profound transcendent spiritual experience that she was wanting to share publicly, but never could. After 22 years, she shares it. 

And Douglas Rushkoff, the best-selling author of THROWING ROCKS AT THE GOOGLE BUS, came on to promote his book, but instead found himself talking about media, philosophy, our role in creating smaller and closer nit communities. 

Seemed like the perfect set of stories for the mood and what the world needs right now.

Roy Goble grew up in a junkyard. His parents came from Oklahama during the dustbowl over to Silicon Valley. His dad bought a junkyard. It just so happened those junkyards were located where Silicon Valley and the tech industry now are. Roy is the CEO of Goble Properties.

Roy is philanthropic (PathLight and Jaguar Creek in Belize, Central America) and now an author of "JUNKYARD WISDOM: Resisting the Whisper of Wealth in a World of Broken Parts." In his father's junkyard as a kid, Roy took apart everything to evaluate it for the value of its parts. Later, as he met success in real estate, Roy experienced complexity of creating wealth while still being a man of Faith. The book and interview both details these challenges and the wisdom in between. 

Fun interview, wealth of knowledge. Check out then book here: https://www.amazon.com/Junkyard-Wisdom-Resisting-Whisper-Wealth/dp/1940269970

Joy Gallina is Italian, but totally Hawaiian. Besides opening a school on Maui last year, she's also studying to be a psychotherapist. YUH. Cool.

In this episode of Sasseville Sundays, the show where we discuss our relationship with God, ourselves and our place in the universe, Joy and I talk about our mind's ability to impact our body, some tricky challenges in friendships and relationships, and banter about life. 

Her laugh, tho. Her laugh. Filled with light and love.

Enjoy JOY.

When Alexander Rossi, 24, won Indy 500, he could barely remember starting out in 33rd place. Dead last at the beginning of the five hundred mile race, Alex and strategist, racer and coach Bryan Herta planned and plotted a come back in real time --- and came out on top. 

A big year for the sport, it's 100th anniversary of the 500 -- and Alex, a rookie -- in his first podcast interview since winning, talks about the behind the scenes manuevers, the $2.5 million payout, the incredibly slight adjustments that are made throughout a race, the mind chatter and much more.

As you know, I've been thinking about leaving The Jake Sasseville Show podcast, but before I did, I had these series of private conversations on the walkie-talkie APP Voxer with my friend Bobby. 

It's instructive and weird and voyaristic.

In this episode of Jake & Bobby, what is the Reality Show Train Wreck, Bobby considers a letter to his unborn daughter and all the while I'm thinking of leaving The Jake Sasseville Show podcast. 

These are a series of Voxes (walkie talkie APP) between me and Bobby Bailey - because if you were thinking about making a big life change, you'd want to have this type of conversation with your best friend. 

Included in this one are ideas around social activism, running for political office, Osho and the idea of Misery and Happiness. 

We touch on addiction and Dan Carlin's Hardcore History podcast. I'm a sucker for authentic and I'm not sure you can get better than this.

This episode of Jake + Bobby takes place on the streets of DC and Honolulu. We cover fear, Krishnamurti and how to deal with ourselves in the midst of banter and creative conversation. 

I'm thinking of ending this podcast, but before I made any decisions, I wanted to talk to Bobby. It's a private conversation on the walkie-talkie APP Voxer that we decided to make into a few very powerful episodes. 

Speaking of, we talk about the creative and curative process of TED, Krishnamurti and fear as a great diamond, the development of a media project -- INNERVERSE: The Journey Within -- as it's being created. 

There is magic in storytelling that is raw and unfiltered. And there's a friendship beneath all of it. This is it.

Have you ever had to let something go, but scared of what may (or may not) come next? 

A weirdly inner-inside episode, voyeuristic conversation with Bobby Bailey (soon to be father, social activist, Global Poverty Project & Invisible Children) who's my friend about what it might be to leave The Jake Sasseville Show podcast. 

Two friends, talking about life, business, creativity and big decisions. 

It's uncomfortably transparent, but something I believe: we all have fear about letting go what we're attached to. Even though I've done 200 episodes, I find myself feeling attached to letting it go. Even if there's something better beyond... 

We use the brilliant APP Voxer to "walkie" each other back and forth, and share the conversations which were never meant to be public. Just enjoy the unfolding story of it all...

VOXER DOESN'T SPONSOR THIS EPISODE BUT WE LOVE VOXER!

Why can't Sci Fi be real? In this episode of ideating for my new book INQUIRY, we look at Science Fiction and Star Wars and wonder why those ideas can't be right here, right now. 

We discuss my one experience of time travel [I was reading "Parallel Universes of the Infinite Self] without a time machine, how healing relationships is a form of time travel and how each one of us is able to do it. 

What if you didn't need a time machine, just a change in perspective?

Kate Collinger is one of the 5+ million people who has bipolar 1 disorder. She was diagnosed at age 18, and she rose to being known as the "Cheerios Girl" after an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show, because of her mom's untimely death.

I found Kate's story of being diagnosed and institutionalized at age 18, and her rugged honesty inspiring and hopeful for all of us who suffer who know someone who is living with mental illness.

Thank you Kate. A beacon of light shining through the darkness for sure.

DeRay Mckesson [@DeRay] first came to fame for being the outspoken leader of the Black Lives Matter movement in Ferguson, Missouri. 

He quit his job in Minneapolis, making six-figures, to become what news outlets have called a "professional protestor." 

His message has made police violence -- and him -- famous. 

He is running for Mayor of Baltimore, the city of his birth and childhood and where he's initiated community programs throughout his life. And, although he's only at 1% in some polls, I've been inspired by DeRay, his focus and precision with activism, and was curious to have a heart-to-heart with him about where life is for him now. 

There were some uncomfortable moments in the interview, but on the whole, I think it's a wonderful time capsule of DeRay at age 30, where he's at in his life and his vision for a city that needs one. 

Thanks DeRay.

INQUIRY is a new book I'm working on based on the reflections of the last 5 years, and how anything I've experienced has been based on the quality of questions I ask myself. 

Using these short episodes as a way to tease out topics I'm working on for the book.

Including today's topic which is the rules that we get projected onto us, or choose to live by, and how it creates our reality. I gave an example of a pretty huge breakthrough I experienced this weekend. 

Open to feedback, I think you'll find it relevant. With rules ["get a 9-to-5," "go to college," "invest in real estate" etc], we put ourselves in a self-imposed box that we often can't remember putting ourselves in in the first place. Then it becomes double hard to get out of. 

Enjoy the show.

Gabe Marihugh (P2). Brilliant interview with a turbo meditator I found in a garden on Maui. He works as a designer for big firms in the US, and has been asking a lot of questions in his 42 years. He shares some of those questions and what he's discovered. 

We left off part 1 off at the second Dirty Little Secret of Culture. We talk about the rest as well as the solutions, caffeine withdrawals, Alan Watts, the silencing of the mind and the original meaning of the word "suffering." 

Thanks Gabe.

Sure, Gabe Marihugh lives in a cabin on Maui. And sure, I took a class with him and three other meditators in a garden a couple weeks back.

Truth is: this guy has been asking questions and sitting in inquiry for most of his teenage and adult life and his meditations and workshops are some of the best on the planet for discovering self and place in the universe. 

He opens his meditation session with a psuedo-monologue about the Dirty Little Secrets of Culture, how it separates us from our self, and offers solutions in this incredibly poignant episode. Beyond the non-spiritual stuff we banter about, Gabe is one of the best conversationalists I've met. [The best part is I don't think he even realizes it]

So today: Gabe talks being spiritual instead of searching for a spiritual life, what is the optimal way of living alongside cultural influences telling us we're "less than," the dirty secrets of culture, including how certainty is addictive and a mis-guided indicator for strong leadership. 

 

Delicious.

Nnamdi Ngwe [@NnamdiNgwe] is a world class improviser, raised in the South and trained in Chicago. 

Before performing in ensembles every night of the week, starting his own improv troupe (3Peat) and traveling around the country, Nnamdi (born to Nigerian parents) and his twin brother Amechi were soccer stars at the University of Alabama. 

We discuss an artists's deep dissatisfaction despite success, transitioning from soccer to improv, diversity (lack of) in the Chicago comedy scene, what makes a bad improviser and just generally catch up. After all, Nnamdi, along with other Chicago revolutionaries in comedy, starred in a sitcom I had created and developed for ABC Family back in 2012. 

It's a virtual homecoming. 

Thanks Nnamdi.

INQUIRY is a new book that I'm working on in response to life imitating art. 

What happens when goals aren't enough? As entrepreneurs, artists, change-makers and creators, we live in a world where Hustle is King and consciousness often takes a back seat to Ego. And yet, we're more disconnected and unsocialized as a result. What happens when you realize that goals are nothing more than ego and self-will trying to exert itself over trying to heal the past or control the future? What happens is you either push harder, create more goals and distractions, or, you let go. 

When I was 27, my life fell apart. I became homeless and had to move in with grandma in Maine after living a first class lifestyle in the entertainment business. Yet also - I had achieved almost all of the goals that I had set out to achieve when I was in my early 20s. 

So, my life didn't really fall apart -- it broke open to the real potential of life, not the fake potential that I was wrapped up in. What I learned over the next three years is the importance of the type of questions we ask ourselves. The quality of those questions becomes the DNA of our life experience. It's a process of on-going INQUIRY, and it's the nature of my next book. 

This episode shares with you the beginning of that journey.

You probably know TUCKER MAX [@TuckerMax] for being a self-described "asshole, not the biggest one, just the one who's just willing to write about it." 

In reality, the Kentucky born lawyer became famous for his "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" book (and subsequent movie, hear why Tucker thinks it tanked at the box office). What followed were two other best-sellers, making Tucker one of three (Malcolm Gladwell and Michael Lewis included) authors to have three books on the NY Times Best Sellers list at the same time.

Tucker is 40 now, and we caught up with him on his jog at his home in Austin, TX. Tucker is thoughtful, the author of "Mate: Become the Man Women Want," the founder of "Book in a Box" and the dad of 18-month old Bishop.

We explore therapy, what gives him fulfillment these days, what his early success taught him and how re-defining his personal brand meant letting go of 75% of his audience.

Thank you Tucker.

Ontology: studying the nature of Being. Frederick Dodson is an ontologist, and by all accounts, one of the most unique human beings to walk the planet in modern day. 

He's slightly self-effacing, incredibly to the point, deepened without being preachy, profound without asserting his rightness over anyone else's wrongness. He's the author of 26 books, including many that have changed the way that I view life, including "Parallel Universes of the Infinite Self." [Strongly recommended reading]

In our conversation today on the program, Frederick talks about energy levels of Presidential candidates, consciousness and creation, the importance of returning to the place of being a student even as a prominent teacher, why he doesn't meditate any longer and so much more.

He's also the founder of RealityCreation.org and this will make you look at your life in a new way.

Douglas Rushkoff's work is a compass for a new world. A recovering theater director who's first book "Cyberia" got side-lined in 1992 by the publisher because "the Internet wasn't going to be a 'thing' by 1993," is the author of "Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus: How Growth Became the Enemy of Prosperity" which articulates this new digital economy, shows us how we can both grow (and stop growing) and still be prosperous. 

He's part philosopher of economics, and part media historian.

"We think we need money to have an economy," is one of my favorite lines of the interview.

It spoke to me deeply, and I think will touch all of you entrepreneurs, financial folks, even artists and creators. It shows a new way of thought by understanding business and debt by going back to its roots in the 12th and 13th century. And, Douglas is a helluva entertaining guy to boot. 

 

Powerful for our times. Right now. It will ignite something deep within you. 

Thanks Douglas. Buy the book. Listen to it on Audible.com/Jake

The most powerful 15 minute episode with BFF Kristen Rae speaking directly to [Recovering] Hustlers and Sales folks who still want to build something big, but not from their ego --- from their higher and more authentic self.

The episode is a series of conversations with my BFF Kristen over the Voxer App. You'll be moved to tears when you hear her response to what was a mini-meltdown last week when I couldn't close a partnership with a major automobile manufacturer. 

Let me know if you like episodes like this -- uncomfortably raw and unintended for air, but so meaningful by doing so. @JakeSasseville & www.JakeRadio.org

When does pursuit of genius get in the way of Real Life?

Imagine my surprise when, out of nowhere on MTV, I see a promo for "TRUE LIFE" featuring Topher Keene. Topher, friend of the show and childhood classmate of mine from Maine, has always been in pursuit of being VERY intelligent and proving it to the rest of the world. 

This week MTV aired an episode of "True Life" where Topher uses brain-enhancing drugs -- Nootropics -- to ace a test that will prove that he's one of the most intelligent people on the globe. Girlfriend Amanda makes an appearance with him on MTV, and on the show today.

The episode got millions of viewers watching, and we asked Topher to stop by and do an interview with me and James Mccrae. Subjects covered include: Nootropics, Genius, Intelligence, When is Enough Enough and what's underneath it all.

Erin R. is a transgender man in the Pacific Northwest. Growing up as a girl, Erin first "came out" to her dad as a lesbian while she was in college. Then, in his mid-20s, Erin realized he had another coming out: as a Transgender Man.

This episode bravely explores Erin's experience as a Transgender man, the questions you don't often hear asked [or answered], how it has affected his relationships and relationship to the Baha'i Faith.

Consider this: Beyond all of us being human, the next level in our identity is whether we are male or female. Gender is beyond sexuality. It's beyond preference or biology. The issue of Gender goes to the core's core of who we are.

Former US Intelligence Officer, Novelist, Educator and Expert on Terrorism and Somali Piracy, Claude Berube sits in for a lively 2-part chat on the US Government, intelligence, growing up in small town Maine with a fierce mom [one of the first females elected to public office] and a dedicated dad [who fought in General Patton's Army in WWII].

We go deep inside his experience on missions, philosophies on war and war games, and how his upbringing shaped an identity of a life of service. His fascination with Andrew Jackson's Navy led him to pursue his doctorates degree on Militarism, which he receives this summer. 

Fascinating and such a poignant conversation at a crucial crossroads for the United States and for us as a human race.

Beyonce & Alistair: Alistair Williams, executive director of Broadway Bodies in NYC, made national headlines for being the first dance studio in the country to break down Beyonce's "Formation" for his classes which are sold out. 

But his story goes much deeper than the Bey-hive or Broadway Bodies.

A former administrator at Rutgers University, a once closeted Alistair grew up with a single mom who, for most of his childhood, was either in seminary or preaching Sunday service around Newark, New Jersey.

He came out of the closet (twice) and not only lives to tell about it, but shares insights and stories and anecdotes that are as hilarious as they are relevant to gay or straight people who are interested in growth, spirituality, personal development and being bold. 

Inspiring story.

Duncan Trussell and Joe Rogan saved my life when I was going through the darkest hours. Why? Because they podcasted together on The Joe Rogan Experience and I listened to it every day. Clung to it like a newborn clings to mother's milk.

Duncan is a legendary standup comedian (The "You Are God Tour" kicks off in April 2016) and his understanding and wisdom of life (Buddhism, Christianity) is far beyond where even practicing believers are. He's gone through testicular cancer, and talks about coming up in the comedy world (as Mitzi Shore's driver of all things). Mitzi is the godmother of comedy in Los Angeles, owner of the Comedy Store.

If you like comedy, philosophy and great stories, you'll love Parts 1 and 2 (second part out on Monday) of my interview with Duncan.

I started this show -- quite literally -- in a Dunkin Donuts parking lot in Lewiston, Maine. Down and out, broke, and living with grandma, life now is a bit different. I'm grateful for both experiences, but the show and my life is not in the same place that it was when it first started.

If there's anything I've learned in life, there is no same -- only change. 

In this episode of the show, I share about that change, the unexpected things along the way and what's next for the show and for me. Hint: It's not what you expect and you may end up in the Pacific before long.

Today on the show, my dad. 

After 160+ episodes, sometimes the greatest stories are the ones in your backyard. 

At 39, my dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. I was 13, and my brother Alex was 10. It was an early on-set diagnosis for sure. (Michael J. Fox and Muhammad Ali also have Parkinson's Disease). He's had it for nearly 20 years and it's progressing. 

When my dad was 41, Alex was diagnosed with AML Leukemia, requiring frequent trips one and three hours away from home respectively. It took a toll on everyone.

At 43, Alex died with my mom and dad by his side. 

At 57, he finally tells some of his story. 

I traveled to Maine recently to interview my dad in his life living room. Thought it was time to get the story on tape. 

As my dad tells the story -- his story -- there is a sense of gratitude I hear from him for Parkinson's, for my brother, and for the strange unfolding of life. It's a lesson of living life on life's terms. 

Enjoy the show. Thanks Dad.

Renee Warren is not only the founder and CEO of Onboardly.com, a PR firm focused on getting funded early stage tech startups the buzz they deserve, not only half of a successful marriage and co-parent with Silicon Valley investor + entrepreneur Dan Martell [she has tips for co-parenting like running a business that will blow your mind!], but she’s also a hard-working, kind human being who’s as smart as she seems to be gee-whiz funny.

 

She started her first business [a restaurant!] at age 17, lived in San Francisco and recently went through a difficult breakup with her business partner at Onboardly. How she got through it and how she designed her company and life is something we can all learn from. She talks openly about it and there are probably a few dozen lessons in her story for us all.

After the FBI found Sophia LaFleur and her children in India (she left for India during a custody battle in Salt Lake City, Utah), Sophia returned to the ashram for a one-year meditation. 

The secret police were searching for her and her children. Sophia had shaved her head bald. The people at the ashram she was staying at agreed to protect her. Despite this, she turned herself into the FBI and went to Utah to face felony abduction charges. She has spiritual breakthrough after spiritual breakthrough and you get to hear it in this interview. 

She was led to a twelve-month silent retreat in India. She discusses what she did, the food she ate and ultimately who she became (and a surprising awareness about the spiritual ego).

It is a remarkable look at a mother's love and a spiritual odyssey unlike any I've heard before. 

This story has riveted many of you, and I'm glad. Part 1 is available here:  https://soundcloud.com/the-jake-show/world-exclusive-sophia-lafleur-custody-battle-fleeing-to-india-spiritual-awakenings-the-fbi

[Part 1] World Exclusive: Sophia La Fleur, a former devout Mormon, brought her kids to India during a custody battle with her ex-husband, Michael, who married Sophia's younger sister.

Ten months later, the FBI showed up in India looking for her and her girls at the ashram she now called home. She faced felony charges for abduction. 

The story doesn't end -- or start -- there, though. It's a complicated, weird, heart-felt and important web of a tale about a mother's love, the Mormon Faith, the FBI, arranged marriages, India, Salt Lake City and a reminder that we're all profoundly human. You will be riveted listening to this.

You won't soon forget Sophia La Fleur, or the story she has to tell. 

[Part 2] out on Wednesday talks about Sophia's return to India after her custody battle and her choice to go on a twelve month silent meditation retreat.

A 22-year-old law student in 1996 at the time, Layli was assigned to a case involving a female fleeing the Western African nation of Togo to escape forced polygamy and female genital mutilation.

Layli lost the case initially, but then it went to the highest court in the land and at age 23, won the landmark case for recognizing for gender-based persecution as grounds for asylum seekers.

Kae Engel-Teta is a car saleswoman outside Annapolis, MD. I originally interviewed Kae for the #SassevilleSunday show -- a more spiritual look at the world. But, with Kae, after just one question, it was clear the interview was going to take a turn.

You have to listen to figure it out -- but at its core, it's a story of love between Kae and Sal. And, how it all went away. It's the most raw, humorous, authentic interview ever done on the show. And the story is sweet.  

Before meeting Sal, Kae was married to a US Diplomat and had four children. Still one of her best friends, her husband and her divorced. And Sal was a car salesman on the other side of town. 

I can't share any more with you without giving away the story. You simply have to listen. It'll leave you laughing, thinking, appreciating life and crying all at once. 

Thanks Kae Engel-Teta.

Dr. Arun Gandhi spent his teen years with his Grandfather, peace and nonviolent activist, Mahatma Gandhi. 

He was 12 when he moved to India to live with Grandfather, and his transition from his boyhood to adulthood was spent with the elder Gandhi, and receiving at least one hour per day of one-on-one attention from him, despite a schedule that would make world leaders today cringe. 

Arun is a masterful storyteller, weaving story with takeaway and shares laughter and reflection on today's world, political climate, the essence of human beings and his grandfather's lessons about life that we've still yet to grasp today. 

Empowering and important interview.

Sabin Lomac is co-founder of a company that is one of the top investments in Shark Tank history.

Cousins Maine Lobster, then a lobster truck business with a single truck in California, was co-founded by Cousins Sabin and Jim. 

After receiving an investment from Barbara Corcoran, Cousins Maine Lobster franchised across the country, and just opened up a restaurant in West Hollywood. 

Life wasn't always so grand for Sabin. A son of a single mom in Southern Maine with lots of energy and no outlet for it, Sabin was in jail (many) times and his Big Brother in the Big Brothers / Big Sisters organization saved his life. He now serves on the Board. 

A wicked episode with a wicked human being, Sabin talks business, love, mentorship, following your gut and is entertaining as hell.

Thanks Sabin.

Human Rights and the Middle East are both important topics right now, and Parivash Rohani, who escaped Iran just before the revolution in 1979, is no better person to speak with about it.

At age 18, after her family's home was burned to the ground due to religious persecution, Parivash's parents hid her in her cousin's dorm room at a local university. Before ending up in Orange County, CA and eventually settling in Maine, Parivash escaped to India, where she met her husband and had her first child.

Recently, because of ill parents, Parivash went back to Iran -- not once, but twice -- despite the dangers of doing so as a member of the Baha'i Faith. An incredible story that will humanize the situation in the Middle East for you.

Enjoy,

Jake

Andrena Hale was the youngest director's rep in the history of the music business under Puffy in the 90s. She worked at Bad Boy before transitioning into television as a successful producer and creator. 

The credits are exhaustive, but beyond the TV credits, there's a soulful hustle and giant heart that Andrena shares with the world. She tells how she's made in a business that's lethal for most human beings, let alone a black woman from Detroit. 

As she says at the end, "I'm 47 and I believe in finding soul a mate, and I don't believe God puts a desire in your heart without it being possible to achieve it." 

Thank you Andrena. Enjoy the show everybody.

Conceived by Japanese and American parents, Takashi grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, quickly learning about Buddhism, and applying its principles to a living non-attached life. 

He's just returned from an eight month rendezvous in Bali, modeling and traveling. An inspirational voice discussing culture, fashion, good-looks, people and what it means to him to be a global citizen.

Loved this interview.

Gabriel Charles Tyler, 24, is a native of the South Side of Chicago, he's an assistant editor of Scholastic in New York City and is just about to receive his masters degree in Journalism from Columbia University. 

The son of a military preacher and strong women in his life, Gabriel was clear early on about the life he wanted to live. I found this interview inspiring -- that even at his age, Gab's open, honest and has some clear views on race, religion, sexuality, spirituality, career and what it's like growing up on the South Side.

Acclaimed dancer, Joffrey Ballet graduate and NYU alum Jess Grippo has been dancing all her life. 

It was after her TED talk that she realized perhaps the most important piece of information that has impacted her creative process: knowing the Seasons of Creativity. 

Using winter, spring, summer and fall as metaphors, Jess explores seasons of creativity to decide when to be creating, sharing, displaying and reflecting on your work. It's a powerful set of tools for maximizing your output and reducing the amount of emotional burden creatives often feel.

She's been sharing this work with coaching clients and in seminars around the world. 

Thanks Jess Grippo.

If our 20s is for truly discovering what we're put on earth for, at least professionally, but also personally, Jonathan has a Ph.D. 

Starting out at Morehouse University, the only all male historically black institution of higher learning in the US, Jonathan went to Stanford, dropped out, starting becoming successful at Google and Shazam, opted out, and now is a full time musician. 

Beneath the titles and right turns, JS shares what's helped him make the unpopular yet fulfilling decisions, what he's learned along the way that can help you in making the leap to live a more daring and fulfilling life.

Recovering addict Christopher Bailey hadn't seen his twin bro and social activistBobby Bailey in years. 

After a severe head injury and deadly addiction to meth, opiates and alcohol, Christopher Bailey was homeless in a park outside San Diego. 

Bobby Bailey, co-founder of Invisible Children and Global Citizens Project, found his twin brother in the park quite by accident. 

Once and for all, Bobby committed to hold space and see his twin through detox and recovery. They rode out detox for 8 days in a Motel 6, and what happens next is nothing short of miraculous. 

Their first full interview together since Chris Bailey finished his 7-month journey walking across the United States, promoting his new project -- Hold Space -- and together, how they plan to change the game for addicts and those affected by them.

Brooklyn-based artist Kimia Kline is an incredibly successful painter. Her work is inspired by the execution of her grandfather in Iran for his religious beliefs. She and her family are on a secret list and if they return to Iran, they face capture and death themselves. 

So, Kimia makes art about what she imagines her homeland to be, since she'll never be able to return. 

Fresh off a fellowship in Detroit, Kimia's work is presented around the world. She's bucked the status quo ("that nipple is too pink" her art instructor once said. "I like it just like it is," Kimia responded) and earns a handsome living from her work. Her documentary about her grandfather was screen in several International Film Festivals. 

More than the art, the way Kimia lives her life, accepts challenges and opportunities with ease and grace is something we can learn from -- as artists, especially.

O-M-G. Persuasion engineer & billionaire minded biz coach Bryan Franklin does our show as one of the first shows to talk about his new book with co-author Michael Ellsberg: The Last Safe Investment: Spending Now to Increase Your True Wealth Forever.

For Gen Y who see their parents and grandparents as "f*cked" (FACD - Financial Advice Commonly Delivered - in Bryan's book), this is a step by step plan how to carve out wealth, live a bigger and much more fulfilling life and build an incredible community in the process. 

"This book could only be written after the crash of 2008. Because people wouldn't have been open to this radical new way of building wealth before then." - Bryan Franklin

This is Bryan at his best -- radically personal, incredibly insightful and the simple terms he speaks about money, wealth, finance and personal development in will activate you. Big time. 

Also, he surprised me at the end of the interview offering this: Pre-purchase 10 copies of Bryan's new book on Amazon, send him the receipt, and you'll get him one-on-one for an hour to discuss your own personal investment strategy. ($2000+ value)

Lewis Howes opens up about his new book -- The School of Greatness -- and his new outlook on life.

The former AFL football player and decathlete talked about a wide range of issues including family trips to see his brother who was in jail during his childhood, how his secrecy around being raped as a child caused him to lash out in other ways as an adult and what he's found is the common thread between all those who he's interviewed in his School of Greatness podcast.

I also thought it was refreshing for Lewis -- a man's man and pro athlete -- to talk about how men should be more vulnerable and emotionally available in life. 

Definitely rate this one as one of my favorites. Thank you Lewis. -- Jake

His new book -- The School of Greatness: A Real-World Guide to Living Bigger, Loving Deeper and Leaving a Legacy is available for order now.

Rainn talks about growing up in Nicaragua and Washington, what two things most break marriages apart (and how both happened for him and his wife at the same time), what he did during his 10 year break as a member of the Baha'i Faith and the wisdom he's found in learning about others' Religion rather than asserting his own. 

This episode is an honest portrait of a guy that played Dwight K. Schrute on "The Office" and who makes it his life's work to serve others.

Big Brother Executive and Creator Shed Simove prepared an interview of Jake. In this remarkably candid, honest interview, Jake shares insights on a road less traveled -- from starting out as a 14 year old magician first scouted by "The Tonight Show" to becoming the youngest host in late night TV history on ABC, to watching his brother die of cancer and his life falling apart around his 27th birthday, the interview is packed with ideas of how we all can create a world where empathy and compassion rule.

Before becoming the most famous substitute teacher in the country this week, Kondwani Fidel thought he'd be a lawyer. That's because his grandma said he liked to argue. 

Kondwani is 22 and earlier this week a student in one of his classes released a video of him spitting a poem he wrote about his childhood growing up in inner city Baltimore. His parents were crack addicts, his dad's in jail, his friends have been killed and his 75-year-old grandma believed in him so much she found a way to put him in private school.

This year, Kondwani graduated with a degree in English and returned to Baltimore to give back. 

The poem connected with the kids in the classroom, and has been shared 3+ million times all over the Internet. We asked Kondwani to do an interview -- but what we found was more than a man who's poem went viral -- Kondwani is an artist who's life experience has set him on a path of contributing massively to the world. 

At a time when the #BlackLivesMatter movement is filled with unrest and antagonism, hear from a guy who truthfully tells his story about what life is really like for millions of black lives and that all of them do matter. And why we should care. 

Very proud of this show -- Enjoy, and thanks Kondwani. - Jake

Sure, hiphop starlit Kayla Brianna's dad is NBA legend Kenny Smith, her grandma sang in Ray Charles' band and her step-grandmother was Carole King, but don't think for one second that Kayla doesn't stand on her own two feet. 

At 21, she's already produced and sang with Birdman and Meek Mill, her second season of "Meet the Smiths" for TBS begins taping shortly and her philosophy about life is important for young women to hear.

She describes herself as the overlap in her groups of friends between "those that like to turn up in the club" and "those that want to read Deepak Chopra."

Sean Patrick has a mission that is also a brand: "That Guy Who Loves the Universe." He's an Anti-Spiritual Guru, though. Part educated psychologist and part spiritual life coach, Sean is in his mid-20s, a likable fella from Liverpool, England. 

His take on spirituality and psychology and the new age folks is interesting and at times, rather hilarious. We talk sex, relationships, polyamory, the power of our dreams and how spiritual folks who always speak so damn positively can really get in the way of deep, profound, authentic human connection.

Shed Simove is an inventor of products that have sold 1+ million units, a TV executive that created Big Brother in the UK, a best-selling author (wait till you hear how!) and an entrepreneur that is pushing us all beyond the limits of what we think is possible, plausible or necessary. And that's where the magic happens. 

I first met Shed at a cafe where he proceeded to show me his inventions, including a flying helicopter with the word "F*CK" on it (a "Flying Fuck"). During our meeting in 2007 (I was 21!), he received a call from the equivalent of the NY Times in London. Before I knew it, we dashed to the lobby of the Telegraph only for Shed to fly his Flying F*CK around the lobby and get front page coverage next day. 

And so it goes. While Shed won't admit it, I will: Deep down, he's a philosopher at life, and through wacky inventions and TV shows and entrepreneurial activity, Shed reminds us all what we're here to do: explore, dream, use our minds and be kind. 

Thank you Shed.

Reza Salazar and I have been best friends since we were nearly teenagers in NYC. Until we weren't. 

This is an audio-essay capturing an email I wrote to Reza that he asked me to write after a particularly interesting chance encounter we had in an Upper West Side bookstore three days before Christmas, 2013. 

We met to make good on a loan he had taken out with me. But of course, as all friendships rich with history, layered with secrets and connected by love do, it ended up being about something else.

It was the first time Reza and I had really had a conversation in two years. He was upset that as his best friend, I couldn't tell him I was gay, until I told the world.

The Artist + The Mobster: The two black sheep of a Long Island Family both color outside the lines.

There is a saying -- "you're only as sick as your secrets." For USC professor of theater, award winning poet and filmmaker Eric Trules, his family secrets ran deep. 

After spending most of his childhood admiring his Uncle Harvey, it was revealed that Harvey was in the mob. A murderer and jewelery thief, Eric Trules became fascinated by Uncle Harvey's life of crime -- and started to think about how when you're a black sheep cast out from the "normaltons" of society, you often have two ways out: the life of an artist or a life of crime. 

Absolutely loved having Eric on the show. Enjoy it...

Jason Zook can sell anything -- and now he wants to sell his future, to you, starting today. 

After working with 2000 brands including professional sports organizations, ad agencies and startups, Jason has sold his last name (three times) to the highest bidder, he crowd-sourced -  through sponsorship - his self-published book to the tune of $75,000 before he wrote a single word and he has created nearly a dozen info-products and generated millions of dollars from all of this activity. 

Now he wants you to have his future -- he's selling anything his mind creates from now till the grave -- for $1,000. 

An alternative serial entrepreneur, Jason's philosophy is intriguing and can lend itself to the things you're creating, or wanting to create, in your life right now.

Thank you Jason. Buy My Future launched yesterday.

At 104, Connie Sawyer is the oldest AND longest working actress in Hollywood. She's also one of the first stand up comedians ever. With almost 200 credits to her name and a 80 year career, she started entertaining audiences in NY and LA during The Great Depression.

As you can imagine, talking to Connie is pure joy, and a trip down 100 years of memory lane.

Before stand up and Kevin Hart existed, Connie was one of the first stand up comedians ever -- and only one of three female comedians -- to work New York nightclubs in the 30s. 

In the 50s, she decided she wanted a family, so she moved to Hollywood and became a character actress, which she has done for nearly 60 years, in such films at Dumb and Dumber, Pineapple Express, Something's Gotta Give, When Harry Met Sally,and such TV shows as Ray Donovan, ER, Friends. 

She's a gem. You'll love what she says next...

Our 9-11 episode. When Jacob Kimchy was 24, his dad was blown up by a suicide bomber in Israel. 

Jacob said he had a choice in that moment -- to harden and fight terror with avengence, or learn to love and share understanding with others. He chose the latter.

His story is palpable and in honor of the September 11th anniversary -- and offering an alternative to how we harden when something bad happens to us, and instead open up. He's the author of: "A NEW SUNRISE: A TRUE STORY ABOUT SURVIVING THE UNIMAGINABLE."

Allen Iverson was Pat Croce's first draft pick in 1996 after Pat first bought the Philly &6ers. Pat gave himself, management and the team five years to get to a Championship. He did just that. 

One of the only self-made guys to go from the locker room (as a trainer) to the boardroom in NBA history, Pat is filled with insight, stories, intriguing obsessions with Pirates and Houdini. A true mensch.

Beyonce's publicist Yvette Noel-Schure sure has made a name for herself starting out in the small Caribbean island of Grenada, moving to NYC and attending City College, becoming a journalist and eventually a staff publicist at Sony in 1993.

Since then, Yvette has molded the careers of Mariah, Prince, Beyonce, John Legend, Wyclef, Adele and others.

It's her heart -- worn on her sleeve -- her values, way of being in the world and way of treating others that is most influential, though. 

Enjoy the interview.

James Murray ("Murr") is the star and creator of "Impractical Jokers" on TruTV, one of cable's highest rated shows. This week is the "live punishment" on Jokers, so we thought we'd have a listen to James. 

I loved my interview with him - he and his high school buddies (who co-star on Jokers) were a 13-year-overnight-success as the improvisational troupe: "The Tenderloins." 

Murr was my head writer on "The Edge with Jake Sasseville" a late night talk show on ABC after Jimmy Kimmel. It's been a joy to see James pack theaters with the guys and to do so well on Jokers. He talks about the business of show, creativity, hustle, hard work and letting go.

Rosie Von Lila is the Head of Relationships at the Burning Man Organization. She first went to Burning Man in 1999, and has been coming back -- and now working with the organization -- ever since. 

Rosie added “Von” to her name at the suggestion of her friend Tom. Tom and Rosie were riding bikes gleefully through the streets of Amsterdam. They were on their way to a surprise birthday party in Croatia. This seems to be how Rosie's life works out -- easily and effortlessly.

She talks online dating, 42 point data plans based on Amy Web's TED TALK, "Dating... a Love Story" and Rosie reveals what she feels like she's hiding in life.

Noel Biderman is the Founder and CEO of AshleyMadison.com. He's also my friend. 

There has been a tremendous amount of controversy surrounding Noel since the leaking of more than 37 million pieces of information related to users of the site for discreet affairs. 

Noel has always been kind to me, and when I've hung out in Toronto at the headquarters of AshleyMadison, what's remarkable is how much of a family business it appears to be.

Enjoy the encore interview with Noel.

Perez Hilton like you've never heard him before. Sensitive, reflective and dynamic, the former "Queen of Mean" and I finally set up a time to chat, after years of being mistaken physically for one another (although one of us is now a skinny bitch). 

Perez talks about his dad dying, the struggle of being known for how he was as a younger version of himself and not being able to shake off the perception despite his own spiritual evolution, doing Big Brother UK, going to therapy, Oprah and much more.

PerezHilton.com and affiliated sites do 3+ million visitors a day and his media empire has been bubbling up for almost a decade. Fascinating to have one of the first internet gossip pioneers on our show, and even more interesting that he's much more likable and sincere than I expected.

Thanks Perez, Jake
