“I’ve always had this kind of thread of entrepreneurship as well as trying to also push myself – always kind of use that idea of constant progression.” (10:33)

“Certainly, I’ve always had some kind of relationship with the [Olympic] athletes. And I think that’s reflected, ya know, in the people that are in the podcast too.” (26:51)

“I would say that the guys who actually excel as athletes are guys who are about the process of learning and less about the reward. They’re not about the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow; they’re about the rainbow.” (27:50)

“A print interview in a magazine is essentially a transcription of a twenty-minute conversation. And so, what I realized is even an hour interview that’s three times as long as a major interview in a magazine. So, it’s [podcasting] a different kind of format.” (39:11)

“Right now, I feel like we’re at a point, at least with podcasting, where you can literally just go in all different directions and see what works. And that, to me, is exciting.” (50:40)
