Erik Huberman

These aren’t the dreams most kids have. And yet, fascinating people have done them. How? Why? HawkeTalk is a podcast all about the origin stories of the most interesting people in the world. Today, you know our guests as famous athletes, authors, and entrepreneurs . . . but there’s so much more to the story. How did they navigate upbringings that seem so far from what they eventually became? What were those pivotal moments that steered them in a new and fascinating direction forever? Buckle up: Everyone loves a good origin story.

    51. Marty Callner - Legendary Director

    30:08

    Sometimes you go searching for a career.  Other times, the career seems to find you. Which is exactly what happened for Marty Callner. Marty is a world renowned television director who has directed some of the biggest names on the planet (Jerry Seinfeld, Cher, and Garth Brooks to name a few) and learned a ton along the way.  Oh, and he also started at HBO when there were 7 employees, and directed nearly every major music video from the 1980’s.  But he didn’t grow up wanting a career in Hollywood. How did that happen then? It involved a three month bender, Nietzsche, and a chance interview at a television station as an out of work 22 year old.  What we talked about How his parent’s divorce tuned his eye towards the artistic. Why a three month bender on psychedelics opened his creative side. Joining HBO in the early stages. How he ended up directing the world’s biggest stars.
