What is the Success Series Podcast?

The success series podcast is all about the secrets, recipes and philosophies of some of the world’s most famous and successful people—musicians, athletes, actors, actresses, entrepreneurs, authors, painters, investors, philosophers, journalists, scientists, you name it. Each episode is focused on one person, and the several best words of advice they’ve ever spoken, along with a few words of elucidation and commentary from yours truly. Important it is to know, that these podcasts are not interviews done by us; what we do instead is comb the internet platforms for any recordings and audio clips that already exist, review them, and then separate the great from the good, the good from the bad, and then, whatever is left of the wheat, we separate from the chaff.
