#8 — The Selfish Episode
This episode was all about the hosts. Folks, the conversation simply went down that road and we were 45 minutes into the podcast when we've noticed it. It sheds some background info on us and, more importantly, some future info (or at least what we intent to do). Don't expect any utilitarian value out of this episode, rather what can come out of it is inspiration.  Also discussed: Life goals and a direction Meaning and purpose What our goals are Voice and/or sound effects An intro for this podcast The structure of a podcast Picking a niche Starting a creative agency Starting a filmmaking agency Aiming at the most noble goal one can imagine

#7 — A New Way Of Thinking/Learning + AI Assisting People In The Creation Process
In this episode, Iacob and Daniel agreed upon one thing: if you're reading this and you don't know where to find opportunity or need, eavesdropping on Twitter is the way to go. That means, in practice, that you can go and search "hate Dropbox" if you're building Dropbox's competitor. See all the tweets and you will get a sense of it in a week — it would replace the month-long process of asking people yourself. They just put it out for you. Also discussed: A new way of thinking and learning Waking up at 5:30 AM Sleeping patterns This idea of AI taking over the world when Siri can’t even control YouTube Voice control AI assistance in the creation process Tesla's Model S, Model 3, Model X and Model Y Go to Twitter find what people hate opportunity lies there The youngest generation has got ADD by default Attention span What if your friends would skip your topic just like an ad Is everything boring now or more interesting?

#6 — The Daily Vlog Of The President Is Near + Restaurants Moving To Online-Only
 Without a doubt the best episode so far — and the longest. Went from politics marketing to new business ideas. Just to quickly add a bit more to the "restaurants moving to online-only" idea, I think it's the new side-hustle that's undervalued. Also discussed: The vlog of a president/prime minister Recording your daily activities Cameras following us — the next video revolution? Vlog/documentation is a hugely undervalued blue ocean. it’s out there for us all in endless niches The HQ of startups is Silicon Valley. For actors, it’s Hollywood) etc — what other HQs are there? Failing is okay in the gym. Why is it not the same in day-to-day life? An analogy between “I don’t give a fuck” and getting rich. You can increase earnings or decrease spending How is Black Mirror produced? The new food shop: available only on Uber Eats/Deliveroo. Just like brick and mortar shops moved online only. Bubble Tea

#5 — "We Have A Generation Of Writers: We All Write And Read Every Day"
In this episode, a lot of the focus is devoted towards books and writing. However, it's not the usual boring book topic. Indeed we're all writing and reading every day. You're doing it now. We're writing books of text messages and reading 10 books per week of text. Which "books" are we reading? That's where nuances start to appear. Also discussed in this episode: New York Times best sellers, Jack Dorsey and his Twitter, the process of writing, choosing your words, analog vs digital, social media identity, Vine, how to start writing daily, quantity vs quality, doing it one time perfectly versus doing it 100 times, a blessing in disguise, printed book vs eBook.
