This is a huge episode! Its going on the “did we really just get to talk to him?” shelf.
If you have never heard of Mark Manson before then get ready.
For decades we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. But those days are over. “Fuck positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest; sometimes things are fucked up and we have to live with it.” For the past few years, Manson—via his wildly popular blog—has been working on correcting our delusional expectations for ourselves and for the world. He now brings his hard-fought wisdom to this groundbreaking book and we talk all about it (plus dig into Mark’s life) on today’s episode.
