What I Like About The Podcast:

  • If you need a healthy dose of positivity or motivation to do the thing, this is a good podcast to listen to

  • Aubrey Marcus seems like he genuinely wants to help people get their shit together

  • Aubrey is a true psychonaught and is open and honest about his experiances

  • The only ads that are run on the podcast are for Aubrey’s own company Onnit

  • Some of the episodes are extremely profound and have resonated with me personally on a deep level

  • Very willing to explore the topics of alternative lifestyles in regards to sex, relationships, and health

  • Very unique guests from the psychedelic community and the “counter culture” make appearances on the show

  • Aubrey is a strong advocate for the legalization of psychedelics and supports organizations such as MAPS who are working towards that

Things That Aren’t So Great About the Podcast:

  • Aubrey can let his ego get in the way while he is interviewing people

  • The podcast can be very Bro-y at times an the bro science can get a little annoying

  • Aubrey tries to be funny sometimes and he really shouldn’t because hes not that funny and it derails the conversation

  • Guests are all very unique and interesting but they all tend to hold very similar opinions

  • The conversation often drifts towards psychedelics no matter who the guest is and what they may be discussing, Aubrey sees them as the end all be all medicine

  • Aubrey isn’t the best interviewer and tends to talk over and interrupt his guests
