I love talking with ultra athlete, author, and plant-powered podcaster Rich Roll because he’s a genuinely curious person, someone who seeks to raise other people up and become a better, more informed person with every conversation. I have had the rare privilege of appearing on the wildly popular Rich Roll podcast twice, once to talk about my first book, The Gift of Failure
, and once to talk about The Addiction Inoculation
Rich is in recovery, something he talks about both on the podcast and in his book, Finding Ultra
, and he loves to chat to other people about the nature of addiction and what it takes to achieve sobriety and long-term recovery. To that end, he’s interviewed so many cool people in the addiction and recovery world, including Dr. Gabor Maté, Charlie Engle, Dr. Anna Lembke, Dan Peres, David Choe, Dr. Jud Brewer, Amy Dresner, Jeff Grant, and Mishka Shubaly.
In Rich’s words, “My hope is that these stories bring you greater understanding, empathy, and perhaps a modicum of peace—and for those currently suffering, tools and encouragement to finally arrest the beast and embrace help.”
I’m so grateful to be a part of this masterclass, and I hope you find it both inspiring and useful.
