#77: What Do Google X, Medicine, and Great Relationships Have In Common?

Released Wednesday, 20th May 2015
Good episode? Give it some love!
Dr. Astro Teller is a computer scientist and entrepreneur who currently oversees Google[x], Google's moonshot factory. Dr. Danielle Teller is a physician specializing in intensive care and lung medicine; she has trained doctors and run research programs at Harvard University and the University of Pittsburgh. In this conversation — my first podcast with a couple — we cover a lot of my usual questions (favorite books, routines, philosophies of living, etc.) but focus on something I haven’t personally figured out: relationships. It's important to note that the Tellers are not “for” marriage but, rather, “for” the freedom to decide how to live most honestly and happily, whether as part of a couple or as a single person. Combining the rigor that has established them as leaders in their respective fields, Astro and Danielle walk me through how they think about relationships, and how they survive and thrive as two driven people.  All show notes and links can be found at fourhourworkweek.com/podcast This podcast is sponsored by LSTN Headphones. LSTN Headphones are gorgeous headphones that I use.
