At more than 300 episodes and 5+MM downloads, Jake Sasseville’s long-running talk show at the intersection of culture and consciousness. From presidents of fortune 500 companies to owners of NBA teams, Jake weaves a world of conversation that brings us from our minds into our hearts. 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 — all while being the president and co-founder of Imiloa Institute, a center for the education and advancement of human beings in Costa Rica.

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 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

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 &

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.
