I recently had the pleasure to sit down and do a couple of podcasts with Chris from Good Looking Loser, author of a great post called How to be Successful at Anything. Chris is one of the most authentic and transparent men that you will meet anywhere. He has a genuine desire to help men and I am proud to consider him a friend.
The second podcast will appear on Chris’ site when it’s ready. In that podcast we discuss online business, what it’s like showing your face in public, the Strangest Secret, whether college is a scam, making and saving money, and a few secret topics.
In this podcast we discussed TRT/HRT, empathy for women, insecurities, and our top life tips. Scroll down for the show notes with time/track listings. UPDATE: Part 2 is available here.
