Living A Life In Full

Living A Life In Full

“Living a Life in Full” is the conversation you always wanted to have with that person who gave an amazing TED talk, or the author of one your favorite books, or that inspirational Olympian you always wanted to know more about. This show is for the intellectually curious. You want to not just know more about the interesting and the innovative, but also what makes them tick, and maybe even what makes them laugh. It’s graduate-level conversations with those making a difference in the world and the lives of others. This show brings you new ideas and approaches so you can live a life in full. The show is equal parts information and inspiration, but without the aphorisms and pablum. We cover a wide range of topics in an engaging way—from Burning Man to The Renaissance Weekend, from the United Nations to top universities, Nobel Laureates to astronauts—we have an amazing Rolodex. Interviewees are a who’s who of high performance athletes, bestselling authors, high-caliber leaders, world changing humanitarians, innovative researchers, amazing start-up founders, clever life-hackers, paradigm busting thought-leaders and global innovators. Cheers, and thanks, Chris http://www.alifeinfull.org/... Show More

Well maybe there is another way…

Daniel Rintz and Josephine Flohr are quite the dynamic duo. If you are a longtime listener to th...

Have you ever questioned your “limits?” Maybe it was doing something athletic, or perhaps in your work or even personal life. I think no matter who you are, where you are, or what you do, pushing up against some type of limit is part of what makes a human a human. Some limits may be external or situational. But what about those that we self-impose? What about those we learned or believe to be true—but what if they were not?

Well th...
