Needles from the Haystack #10 – 8/2018

Needles from the Haystack #10 – August 2018

Dang…I listened to some great podcasts on my daily commute last month!

I wanted to share 7 or even 8, but this is a 5-item-newsletter. No exceptions. I’ll save the missing pieces for a later issue, I guess.

Here’s what I settled on for this month.

I really loved the interview with Brian Wansink. Made me buy 2 of his books immediately. Now I’m chewing on those instead of candy. At least for the most part. Ice cream is tough to avoid these days. No matter what Dr. Pence (see below) says.

And the Tim Ferriss Radio Hour on success contains plenty of seeds that might grow big for you. Check it out, too.

If you think I did a good job in selecting the content, why don’t you make a big banner with the link to this site on it, rent a plane and fly it over your city for a day or two?

Or…you know…go one of the traditional routes for sharing what you enjoyed…that’ll be just as awesome.

Have a great month of August and keep rocking!
