500 tabs and counting down (#499 “The Tim Ferriss Show” transcripts)

Author and podcaster Tim Ferriss has amazing guests, and he is always so super prepared as an interviewer that the conversations he has with guests are really substantial.

However, I don’t usually like listening to podcasts because doing so is such a time-consuming activity. Plus, I think reading is probably my most preferred way of consuming information. Viewing documentary film/video is second, and listening to audio recordings is a distant third. Unfortunately, I often find myself without headphones or earbuds, which then makes it difficult to listen to anything in the presence of other people.

Luckily, Ferriss has an archive of transcripts available for all his podcast interviews. At some point in the last few years I opened one of those transcripts and, while I was at it, saved the page that serves as the “home page” for transcripts. That is, I kept the tab open so I could easily find it again😂

But now that I’m trying to do better in the open tab department (i.e., eventually not having any old ones open at all), I’m bookmarking it and hitting the “X” to close it out for good.

Only 498 more to go!

Here’s that (just closed😀) link to “The Tim Ferriss Show” transcripts: https://tim.blog/category/the-tim-ferriss-show-transcripts/

And here’s a link to one of my favorite interviews. It’s from two years ago, with actor Matthew McConaughey when his book came out: https://tim.blog/2020/10/19/matthew-mcconaughey/

(UPDATE, a day later—I just found another open tab with a different Tim Ferriss episode, this one a Q+A session from August where Ferriss answered questions from fans who had won a contest in connection with the 15th anniversary of The 4-Hour Workweek. Here’s the link: https://tim.blog/2022/08/16/the-tim-ferriss-show-transcripts-qa-with-tim-on-wealth-and-money-book-recommendations-advice-on-taking-advice-c-s-lewis-relationships-behavior-change-and-self-awareness-why-we-are-all-mostly/

So now I guess I’m down to 497!😀)
