Every once in a while a podcast episode jumps out at me and grabs my attention.
This week I was so pleasantly surprised by Scooter Braun’s appearance on the the Bill Simmons podcast (Bill’s approach to interviews is unique and elite. His conversation with Hulk Hogan is an excellent example of his style).
Anyway, Scooter is most well-known for being the manager of Kanye West and Justin Bieber. He’s done so well that at the young age of 37, he never has to work another day in his life.
In this conversation they touch on a broad range of topics: sports, hustle, the importance of a ‘scene,’ how creative movements depend on many creators collaborating, befriending influential and powerful people, family, business strategy, getting to “your number,” why Michael Jackson’s “Off the Wall” is a more important record than “Thriller,” finding happiness in success, why so many successful people implode, and a whole lot more. A truly great episode.
Have a great weekend,
