    I usually check it but shouldn’t be a problem!

  • Kim Turner says:

    Please, just one Rich only podcast please… Not the Julie dominated podcast. Let her ramble on her own podcast please or just have her on every other. This isnt the Richroll podcast at all.

    great show ! figured you were into a guy like Tolle. Very interesting and helpful stuff. Don’t know if you are taking ” requests” , but I’d love to hear you interview Jason Lester from your Epic 5 race. I don’t think you need a co host either. Best podcast yet!!

    Loving it… In the middle of your New Years podcast and appreciate the depth of your exploration. Wow.. some folks are really offensive and it feels like jealousy. The two of you together bring an awesome dynamic. It is a continued stance against sexism.. don’t be fooled 🙂 I dig the give n’ take… it never feels dominated by one of you. Loved the Gabby interview as well. Listened to that at Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel on Pescadero Beach. You guys, the wild ocean, sweet smells of the sea. Hey… I would love to hear your thoughts on raw, living foods vs cooked foods and how you “roll” with that. Peace.

    i skipped the beginning of the podcast and just heard the opening comments and I apologize for my comments below. I apologize if I offended Rich or Julie. Thanks for your work. I was just my opinion and was being selfish on what I wanted the content to be.

  • Edward says:

    A stance vs sexism ? Reaching a bit for your agenda ????

  • Edward says:

    Great show. Thanks for the explanation on where the podcast was going. I think calling it the Rich Roll podcast combined with the artwork of Rich running threw people off. Rich, did you watch the Rose Bowl?

  • Monique says:

    Hi guys – again loved the podcast. I am a huge fan of Eckhart. I would also encourage you to read Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche´s ¨Running with the Mind of Meditation¨. Looking forward to the next podcast. Blessings, Monique

    Another awesome podcast. I really love the direction that the shows are going.

    First, it’s interesting to get a behind the scenes look at what makes what’s working work in the triathlon of life. Sounds hokey, but it’s true. Rich and Julie have great chemistry. Their differences make the casts interesting to listen to . . . and I’d be interested to hear Julie go off the rails because she’s got a different point of view, and it really seems like she has a lot to teach people.

    Second, it’s comforting to hear what other people are going through . . . and what they are doing to get on the other side. Even the stuff that’s a little out there makes sense. There really isn’t a community out there that supports some of the topics you guys cover. For the audience, it’s kind of like anything else — take what works and leave the rest.

    I haven’t listened to one yet that I didn’t learn something in. I’ve even taken notes!

    Keep it coming. They rock!

    Don’t listen to the haters you to are great together and make an awesome team great podcast.

  • Chris says:

    You made a great call in this one Rich. It was “everyday can be New Year’s Day when inspiration strikes”. That’s a real keeper mate and a great source of inspiration for when the best intentioned resolutions start to unravel.

  • Another great episode! As for the opening discussion on Julie’s participation on the podcast, if you don’t like it, don’t listen! To be honest I was skeptical at first, but after listening to all of the first 9 episodes, I believe that Julie does at a lot of value / Rich + Julie together is a great combo. Keep up the great work / safe travels back to Los Angeles…

  • Hi Rich – Enjoying all of the podcasts – Julie brings a great perpective into them. Looking forward to the next one…Thanks for doing them
