Random Show Episode 29

A new episode of the Random Show with Kevin Rose (founder of Digg) and Tim Ferriss (author of The 4-Hour Workweek) is out! This is episode 29.


Lessons learned
  • Kevin Rose's new watch-blog-company, Hodinkee, has a "small" but engaged audience. They had 1.3 million user sessions in a month from users that have opened the app more than 200 times. By the way, the name is not Swedish for small watch, at least I've never heard of it and I've been speaking Swedish for more than thirty years. According to Google translate, the word "hodinke" is "watch" in Czech/Slovak. 

Recommendations
  • Kevin Rose recommended the book The Okinawa Program, even though he also said some parts of the book were rubbish, and he also recommended eating Germinated brown rice with seaweeds, sesame, and eggs. 
  • It was difficult to hear, but I think Tim Ferriss recommended The Age of Miracles Animal Rescue if you want to adopt a dog.
  • Tim Ferriss recommended the podcast player app Overcast and playing Tetris. Why Tetris you might ask? The reason is that he interviewed Jane McGonigal who argues that playing Tetris a short time after a traumatic event will minimize the risk of post-traumatic stress. He also recommended the book Anything you want
