    Podcast Summary

    • Revolutionizing industries with convenience and affordabilityHIMS offers affordable ED treatments online and Audible brings personalized audio entertainment, both empowering individuals to express themselves and live authentically, as encouraged by Stoic philosopher Agrippinus.

      Both HIMS and Audible are revolutionizing their respective industries by providing convenient and affordable solutions for men's health and entertainment. HIMS offers affordable ED treatments through a simple and discreet online process, while Audible brings thrilling audio entertainment to listeners with personalized recommendations and the ability to keep one title a month. Agrippinus, a lesser-known Stoic philosopher, adds to this theme of individuality and self-expression. He believed in standing out and being true to oneself, even if it meant going against the norms. Whether it's through accessing affordable healthcare or immersing oneself in captivating audio stories, these modern and ancient perspectives encourage us to embrace our unique identities and live authentically.

    • Living authentically despite adversityAgrippinus' story inspires us to stay true to ourselves and live individually, even in a corrupt society

      Agrippinus, a little-known stoic from ancient Rome, stood out from the crowd by living authentically according to his beliefs, even in the face of adversity and a corrupt society. Despite the unknowns about his life, we know that he refused to conform to the norms of his time and instead chose to live individually and autonomously. He believed that each person is unique and valuable, and he refused to blend in and be just another thread in the fabric of society. This message resonates with us today, as we strive to be true to ourselves and live according to our values, even when it may be easier to conform to the expectations of others. Agrippinus' story serves as a reminder that individuality and authenticity are worth fighting for, no matter the cost.

    • Agrippinus: A Governor of PrincipleAgrippinus, a man of great principle, stood out against convention and prioritized fairness and justice, inspiring Thorne's commitment to providing personalized, scientific nutritional supplements with integrity and excellence.

      Agrippinus, a man of great principle, stood out against convention even at the risk of his own life, not for ego or attention, but because it was the right thing to do. His fame came from his unwavering dedication to his principles as a governor, despite an empire where avarice was rewarded. Agrippinus' commitment to fairness and justice was so strong that he even tried to persuade those he sentenced to accept their punishments. Thorne, a sponsor of this episode, shares Agrippinus' dedication to providing the best nutritional supplements with a personalized, scientific approach. Like Agrippinus, Thorne values integrity and commitment to excellence, even in the face of adversity.

    • Trusting in Character to Guide DecisionsAgrippinus' unwavering character allowed him to accept and move on from hardships with dignity and composure, reminding us that our character is our fate and trusting in ourselves and our values can help navigate challenges.

      According to the ancient philosopher Epictetus, as told through the story of Agrippinus, the only thing that truly matters in life is one's character. Agrippinus believed that when faced with difficult decisions, there should be no hesitation or calculation. Instead, one should trust in their character to guide them towards the right path. This was evident in Agrippinus' response to being accused of conspiracy against Nero and subsequently being exiled. Despite the injustice, he remained calm and composed, focusing on practical concerns rather than bemoaning his fate. His unwavering character allowed him to accept and move on from hardships, including exile, with dignity and composure. Agrippinus' story serves as a reminder that our character is our fate, and that trusting in ourselves and our values can help us navigate even the most challenging circumstances.

    • Embracing uniqueness despite adversityStanding out from the crowd can lead to criticism or harm, but those who refuse to be intimidated can find success and distinction.

      Standing out from the crowd, even if it means facing adversity, is a cost worth paying for those who refuse to be intimidated. This idea was exemplified by the character Agrippinus in the daily stoic podcast, who chose to be distinct in an empire where Nero believed he was the only one deserving of attention. The beauty of a garment lies in the threads that stand out, but the reality is that these threads can also be targets for criticism or even harm. However, for individuals like Agrippinus and his father before him, this was a risk they were willing to take. The podcast also reminded listeners to check out their signed books, listen to their daily podcast "The Best One Yet," and mentioned various business news stories. Ultimately, the message resonated with the idea of embracing challenges and finding success despite obstacles.

    You Don’t Get To Do This Anymore | Don’t Look For The Third Thing

    Marcus Aurelius wrote Meditations to himself, yet he only speaks positively of people he knows in those pages. 

    This is the price of success, of a platform, of power—that is, responsibility.

    Ryan talks to journalist David Wallace-Wells about his new book The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming, seeking out information, challenging assumptions, and becoming empowered through better understanding.

    During his 11 years at New York magazine, David has emerged as one of the nation’s most formidable thinkers about science and society, writing agenda-setting essays on the dangers and complexities of global warming. His 2019 book, “The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming,” was a number one Times bestseller, and reviewers called it both “brilliant” and “the most terrifying book I have ever read”; The Washington Post aptly called it “the ‘Silent Spring’ of our time,” and it has become a touchstone for the younger generation of climate activists who have helped redraw the landscape of global climate politics in just the last few years.

    It’s All A Gift | Ask Ds

    It’s All A Gift | Ask Ds

    It doesn’t seem that way of course. The economy is a mess, the government is dysfunctional, the virus is still there, screwing up plans and making us sick. People are annoying. People are frustrating. Your co-worker is a jerk. Your kid just broke his arm. Everything is expensive, so expensive.

    This isn’t how things are supposed to be is it? Well, it’s pretty much how things have always been. Look at Marcus Aurelius, in his reign and life, he knew all those things intimately, plus many other tragedies. A few years ago, a Daily Stoic reader wrote in to make an interesting observation. In Meditations, Marcus is vague about some things and very specific about others. As a general rule, Marcus does not talk much about the plague he lived through or the grief he felt. Nowhere does he bemoan the disasters which happened with such frequency that one ancient historian described Marcus Aurelius’ reign as an unending series of troubles. Marcus skips over all this, but you know what he spends a full 10% of Meditations talking about in very clear detail? The gratitude he felt to the people who had helped him, who had inspired him, who had taught him.

    A New You For a New Year

    A New You For a New Year

    It’s kind of crazy to think how recent December 2019 feels. Not that long ago, it seems, we were getting ready for what a new decade might bring us. It’s even crazier when the truth settles in: 2019 was FOUR years ago. We are almost half way into that “new” decade.

    So much has changed. So much has happened. But at the same time, so little has changed. We’re still struggling with the same things. The aspirations we had back in 2019—this was the year we were going to turn a new leaf, lose weight, start that big project, learn a new language, work on our temper—are still there, that potential still waiting to be realized.

    Our New Year New You Challenge is all-new content, guided by thousands of responses and reactions to our previous challenges, courses, videos, and emails. It’s a whole new challenge based on painstaking research and timeless science, for an all-new, life changing experience.

    It’s Only After You’ve Lost Everything That You’re Free to Do Anything

    It’s Only After You’ve Lost Everything That You’re Free to Do Anything

    "One day late in the fourth century BC, the Phoenician merchant Zeno set sail on the Mediterranean Sea with a cargo full of Tyrian purple dye. Prized by the wealthy and by royalty, who dressed themselves in clothes colored with it, the rare dye was painstakingly extracted by slaves from the blood of sea snails and dried in the sun until it was, as one ancient historian said, “worth its weight in silver.” This was Zeno’s family trade. They trafficked in one of the most valuable goods in the ancient world, and as it has always been for entrepreneurs, their business was on the line seemingly every day.

    On that fateful day, a day not unlike one you may have experienced, Zeno lost everything."

    Find out the rest of Zeno's story in today's Daily Stoic Podcast.
