I have been listening to this megasode for 3 months over 20x now. Check the mix by Akira the Don at youtube. I also listen to that during workouts. Thanks Naval! Let's see how this goes..

This is an amazing person. The content is great and worth your time. The guy doesn't take up your time, he is on point with every bit of information and presents it in a concise but complete manner. I Highly recommend this podcast to anyone interested in business, investing, finance, science and even philosophy.

and super pleased to hear you are Indian. I remember Charles Koch who everyone demonizes saying once "What keeps me up at night is the thought of how many secrets of the universe have gone undiscovered because the child in India couldn't go to school."

REALLY GOOD. And so important for the 2nd world, the people that are trying to break through but don't have this knowledge. Stop making excuses. I have no idea if he explains Rene Girard's mimetics but that is another issue in resentment politics.
