This week’s conversation is with Carissa Moore, one of the most prolific surfers on the world stage.

At age 18, Carissa became the youngest person – male or female – to win a surfing world title and was the first woman to compete in the Triple Crown of Surfing, Hawaii’s most prestigious contest series featuring the world’s best male surfers.

This year, Carissa became the first surfer in history to win a WSL world title and Olympic Gold Medal in the same year.

This was also the first time the Olympics included surfing as a competition so Carissa was the first woman to ever win Gold in this event.

I was fortunate enough to work with the U.S. Surfing Team in Tokyo – it was incredible – all of it.

The team dynamics, being able to play a part in representing the United States of America, and to support the four surfers in their competitive pursuits.

In this conversation, we discuss some of the ingredients for Carissa to win Gold in Tokyo: the support system she had growing up, her approach to preparing for high stakes competition, and why her ideal competitive mindset has evolved over the years.

    Cody Townsend: The Delicate Dance Between Risk, Reward, and Death

    1:52:59

    This week’s conversation is with a legend, Cody Townsend, one of the most awarded skiers in freeskiing history.Cody has evolved from a California beach kid obsessed with the mountains … to now stand atop the pinnacle of the sport.From a successful alpine ski racing career to stunt doubling for Hollywood films, or skiing the “Most Insane Line Ever”, Cody skis some of the most challenging and dangerous lines on the planet - all with an affable nature and a smile on his face.Cody’s latest project, called “The FIFTY,” is in his words, “simple” - it’s a goal he set to try to climb AND ski all fifty of the lines and mountains chronicled in the classic book, “The Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America.”From Alaska to Colorado, California to Baffin Island, these lines are among the most difficult in the world and all of them have at least one historical descent. But no one has skied them all.Cody’s goal is to change that. And in my opinion, there’s no one more suited to do so.He’s about halfway through this project, and you can follow his progress on his YouTube channel… he uses skiing as his medium for insight, mastery and expressionSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Corey Coopersmith: Maintaining a Fighter’s Mindset While Battling Disease

    2:27:56

    This week’s conversation is special. It’s heavy, it’s rich, and it will change you. It’s a two-parter, recorded on two separate occasions, about a year apart.It’s with Corey Coopersmith, known professionally as PunkTheBunny - he’s a singer/songwriter and producer.Born and raised in New York, Corey was a competitive grappler and MMA fighter prior to embarking on his journey with music.For some background, I worked professionally with Corey, over a decade ago, in his MMA days. And let me tell you, he may not be doing it professionally anymore, but he IS a fighter. That’s just who he is.In March of 2020, Corey was hit with COVID19 and it left him with chronic symptoms... for over a YEAR.Part 1 of this episode was recorded in January of 2021. At that point, he had been suffering symptoms from “long haul COVID” for 10 months already... or so we thought.Even after we recorded Part 1, Corey kept getting sicker and sicker, and no one could figure out why.We stayed in touch after our conversation and then I connected him with one of our Finding Mastery guests, Dr. Fajgenbaum, - a ground breaking immunologist out of the University of Pennsylvania.In Part 2, we catch up and dive into what Corey’s journey has been like over the past year. I don’t want to say too much and spoil his amazing story, but his fighter mindset and insights shine through.I’m so honored to introduce Corey to you. ----Support Corey's cancer GoFundMe page----Please support our partners!We're able to keep growing and creating content for YOU because of their support.

    David Farrier: The Truth About Conspiracy Theories

    1:21:54

    This week’s episode is with David Farrier.David has always been drawn to the stranger side of life, reporting and hosting across a range of news and entertainment programmes for TV3 New Zealand for nearly a decade.For many, David’s name conjures up images of grown men tickling each other in boxing rings. That’s not because it’s a hobby of his, but because his critically-acclaimed 2016 documentary Tickled, which is still cemented firmly in the minds of any who watched it, follows the largely unknown subculture of Competitive Endurance Tickling.Following its release, David was quickly approached by Netflix to create Dark Tourist, an eight-part docuseries about, you guessed it, dark tourism—those who forgo sandy beaches to instead visit places that are historically associated with death and tragedy. His stories from this show are… unbelievable.David now co-hosts Armchaired and Dangerous, a monthly podcast with Armchair Expert’s Dax Shepard and Monica Padman about conspiracy theories, and last year launched a newsletter named Webworm that is a joy to subscribe to.In this conversation, we discuss why he’s drawn to the stranger and more dangerous sides of life, how conspiracy theories are growing, how they’re changing the world we live in, and some strategies for dealing with that one whacky uncle over the holidays.----Please support our partners!We're able to keep growing and creating content for YOU because of their support.
