Art of Manliness Podcast #53: Experimenting with Your Life with A.J. Jacobs

Posted By Brett On November 8, 2013 @ 5:43 pm In Podcast | 8 Comments

In today’s episode I talk to A.J. Jacobs, editor-at-large at Esquire Magazine [1], writer of several bestsellers (including The Year of Living Biblically [2] and Drop Dead Healthy [3]), and a self-proclaimed human guinea pig [4]. He’s now a contributor to Upwave [5]. A.J. and I discuss some of the crazy experiments he’s done with his life, the comic hijinks that ensued with them, and how they made him a better man.

Show highlights:
  • How A.J. started with experimenting with his life
  • The secret to changing your mindset that he learned from following every single one of the 700+ rules in the Bible for an entire year
  • How trying to be the world’s best husband made him miserable but how it improved his relationship with his wife at the same time
  • Why every man should experiment with his life
  • And much more!
