John Lee Dumas is the Founder and Host of EOFire, an award winning Podcast where he interviews today's most inspiring Entrepreneurs 7-days a week. With over 1400 episodes and banking around 1 million $ a year in revenue, JLD has shown the world the power of Podcasting. What is interesting about John is that after interviewing so many entrepreneurs he has picked up a lot of tools that he is applied to his own world in performance and productivity. In this show we go behind the scenes of EOFire to understand what makes John, and the show so successful. Here's what we chat to JLD about in this show: Did JLD have a fascination with radio, announcers, interviewers as a kid? A moment during an interview with a guest where something had a profound influence on his personal thinking? Which Ep would he send to Mars to best represent EOFire and why is it so important to John personally? What is a Mindset of Abundance? As a business owners what’s JLD worst ever moment and how did he deal with it?  We discuss a time when the darkness closed in on JLD and dealing with self doubt. How do we batch our energy? Focus is the new IQ, how does JLD focus to get stuff done? What do people not know about EO Fire? Where is the future of podcasts going to be? The Gateway Bug is a pioneering documentary feature film on the booming edible insect industry in America.  New York-based filmmakers Johanna B Kelly and Cameron Marshad just premiered The Gateway Bug and we discuss the funding of the film through Kickstarter, the film making industry, putting it all on the line to follow a dream, and of course, our attitude to bugs and their potential as a future commonly accepted food source. Here's the direction of our chat with the guys behind the film: Whats the film about? Has the direction of the film changed during production? Why is this message so important to both filmmakers? Have we always eaten insects, how far back does this go? What have they discovered to be the health benefits of eating insects? Why do we have this "yuck" factor associated with insects? What was the most tasty bug they enjoyed and remember fondly? What is the take of a vegan or vegetarian to bugs? What’s it going to take to switch peoples perceptions so we become comfortable with the idea of being Insectavores? Why is the cricket considered to be the Gateway Bug? Are we starting to see any legislation introduced regarding the production of insects for food consumption? Film making is a tough business…. What has this cost them both? Where can we see the film?   LINKS   EO Fire   The Gateway Bug screenings   Grilo Protien   Dos Equis on Youtube - The Most Interesting Men in Podcasting   The Mojo Radio Show   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

What a Ride!” ― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967
