Random Show Episode 13 – Kevin and Tim on Trampolines, Apps, and A**holes


12? 13? Our ability to remember episode numbers: negligible.

Kevin’s ability to kick my ass on trampolines: priceless. (Kevin left out the fact that he grew up with one. Trixy.)

Join us at House of Air, which features dozens of trampolines at different angles, including the “Matrix” room. There is a fair amount of cursing in the video. If you have sensitive ears: earmuffs…


Some viewers might have trouble viewing this with iPhones/iPads. Bonus points to anyone who figures out the reason(s). In the meantime, the Vimeo version is fine on iPhones. Sorry about the wonky audio. We decided to try boom vs. lav mics for a change of pace.

For the fellow Slaine fans out there, here’s a treat:


Odds and Ends: Sonos Winner!

The winner of the Sonos ZonePlayer and Klipsch speakers giveaway is Allen of Unfubared. This was a comment/tips competition on the post How to Travel 12 Countries with No Baggage Whatsoever. Congrats, Allen, and thanks for the great travel recommendations that cinched the deal. Keep an eye on your inbox.

There were dozens of fantastic comments, and it was very hard to choose just one, hence the delay in posting the winner. Honorable mentions also go to Mike Burngasser (survivalist approach), Heather Waibel (light-weight packing for women) or Craig Tobin (traveling light with kids in tow).

Thanks to all who commented!

  1. I’d pull back on the Tucker Max. I think a lot of people will be interested by what you’ve said about him, go read some of his stuff, and be left thinking this guy is making the world a worse place. Not just joking about it (which can be hilarious). Maybe you have an overlapping audience, but I’m not really seeing it. Anyway, another great episode. I’m looking forward to the book and more Random!


  2. ‘Peace is every step’ was like therapy for me. It is an immensely powerful book that I’ve bought for friends over and over again. In a world so obsessed with achievement it is so easy to get caught up in an internals storm of self criticism and anger at ourselves and other people. Being present in the moment frees us from all of our crap. It gives life back it’s possibilities.

    You might also like Pema Chodron’s book ‘Start where you are: a guide to compassionate living’.

    In my old flat I had ‘When washing dishes, just wash dishes’ stenciled above my kitchen sink. Some people thought it was silly but remembering to just ‘be there’ is incredibly relaxing!

    Your a constant source of inspiration. Thank you x


  3. Bummer. Seems that Vimeo has joined the ranks of youtube, twitter, facebook, and others, out of reach beyond the Great Firewall of China. Sadly, videos don’t seem to work through the proxies.

    Enjoyed the show while I could watch it. Hope your next book title is, “The Four Minute Free Country”, hah!


  4. “Posted on February 4th, 2010″ – is that right?

    know of any other meditation exercises to ‘live in the moment’, the only one i know of is the ‘rose’ from The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari


  5. what would be your first step/process if you wanted to ‘hack’ a different industry, one you are not experienced in? my guess from reading your previous posts, i.e. publishing, would be to contact people who have succeeded unconventionally, would that be it?…


  6. If you guys are ever in St. Louis check out a business called “Skyzone”. It is exactly like the place you visited….but you get to play dodge ball on the trampoline courts. I think Los Angeles has one as well.


    • It didn’t get a strong response, so I pulled it off the homepage by redating it. I do that pretty often. I want visitors’ first exposure to my content to be as positive as possible.



  7. Had to laugh when Kevin made the comment about “ice cream delivery”!

    I own a business in Madison,WI that specializes in doing just that for college students at UW-Madison. Kevin, would love to have you jump on board as an investor and help us bring our great service to other college campuses.


  8. Hi Tim,
    as always, I love the Random Show. I keep watching expecting that one day you guys will let me down but happily that has not yet been the case. :o)

    It would be cool if you posted the links to the books that you mentioned. -You usually do I think..

    I am with Kevin on the new Kindle, I love it. And as an author you should too because the impulse purchase potential is awesome. As I was watching The Random Show on the TV in my lounge I was searching for 4 hour body on the kindle… 1-click buy! -Unfortunately it is not in the kindle store yet.

    Take care guys and have fun!
