HawkeTalk

By Erik Huberman

No one decides to wake up one day and walk across Antarctica. Or leave their bohemian parents and join the Navy Seals. Or any number of crazy, amazing things that people do. These aren’t the dreams most kids have. And yet, fascinating people have done them. How? Why? HawkeTalk is a podcast all about the origin stories of the most interesting people in the world. Today, you know our guests as famous athletes, authors, and entrepreneurs . . . but there’s so much more to the story. How did they navigate upbringings that seem so far from what they eventually became? What were those pivotal moments that steered them in a new and fascinating direction forever? Buckle up: Everyone loves a good origin story.
