Random Episode 10: Kevin Rose and Tim Ferriss on Food, Top Picks, and More


In this episode of Random — lucky #10 — Kevin and I hit the streets of San Francisco to discuss food, recent learnings, and a few feature: favorite books, people, and websites since the last episode.

Show notes and links are included below, but one new order of business: we are thinking of having sponsors for the Random show!

Here’s the idea: we have room for just three (3) sponsors at $1,000 an episode each, and you get both screenshots during the episode with your website/logo, and we also give you a shout out at the beginning of the episode. The sponsorship will allow us to treat Glenn to some fancy new shoes and support his video habit, as well as open up uber-cool options for topics and experiments.

Interested? First come, first served, so let us know at earliest via email: amyatfourhourworkweekdotcom with “RANDOM SPONSOR” in the subject line.

That all said, here are the show notes and a bonus safari video…

  1. Nearly finished watching it since seeing Kevin post it on his blog. Always enjoyable to watch and I’ve downloaded a sample of Nowhere to my Kindle – been craving some new fiction to devour. :-)


  2. Love this show… and half an hour seems to be a good time frame too!

    p.s. Is this not show #9? it is listed as so on Mr Rose’s blog ;)


  3. That farmer’s market has got to be one of the best ways to spend a Saturday in this city. The samples from the Greek stand are to die for and have you managed to catch to hot chocolate being sold out side the bakery on cold Sat mornings for about $5/oz. To die for. Looking very forward to using Tripit a bit. I’ve been seeing it on LinkedIn like crazy.

    Your camp in South Africa reminds me of one I stopped by with my family when down that way called Singita. Amazing people down there.

    Just added Delivering Happiness to the top of the list of books to read and review for our side. Stumbling on Happiness and What Happy People Know are valuable reads too.

    Good to see you enjoying SF Tim!



  4. Just looking out my window to another beautiful Christchurch day. Glad you enjoyed your time in NZ Kevin…hopefully you can come back and spend some more time here soon


  5. Tim – EVERY entrepreneur (well maybe not every…but most) looking to build a brand and make it personal via video like you and Kevin are doing. It is something I preach about on my show. The barrier of entry vs. benefits of doing these kinds of videos is amazing.

    A camera. An idea. A little lighting and light editing. Export. Upload.

    I think most people will feel a better connection with you and Kevin as well as laughing and learning.


  6. Dude, I’m with others on more of this stuff. You’re a thought leader and we love hearing what you gotta share with us. I think having a sponsor for a show like this is a great idea! It’ll also make you do more of them. Now we need to figure out how to get the video to work on an iPhone.


  7. I love these random episodes you do! Just like David said, there really isn’t much barrier to entry for Entrepreneurs anymore and its awesome! Keep doing what you do, you’re a true inspiration for me!
