My Conversation with Tyler

Last week, I pre -recorded several of these interviews, one of which was with Tyler Cowen—one of the greatest public intellectuals of our day and also someone who is among my favorite people. Tyler is an economist, a NYT bestselling author, and—I don’t think he’d mind me saying this—also someone who is a bit eccentric.

It’s part of his charm.

(Tyler reviewed my book for his famous blog Marginal Revolution, a few months ago: “A sane and healthy book!”)

The interview started off tame enough.

And then, after only one question, something surprising happened.

Tyler completely took the reins of the conversation—and began asking me questions!

Tyler is a famous —and infamous!—interviewer.

His podcast, Conversations with Tyler, is one of the best known and most influential podcasts in the world.

And I got a small flavor for why that is! His rapid fire questioning puts you on the spot, getting past one’s filter and persona and laying bare the essence of one’s soul.

I’ll be honest.

I finished the interview with Tyler and thought, “What on earth just happened? What did I even say?!”

And I haven’t even listened to it before sharing it with you now. I just can’t bring myself to!

But I do know he got to some interesting insights about the book—and I can’t wait to learn what you think.

A request

I wanted to give you a sneak peek into the summit by sharing this conversation I had with Tyler, and to encourage you to:

  2. Claim your spot at the Civility Summit—and invite your friends to join us for this essential dialogue, too! (Use the “share” link below)


Exciting news!

Exciting news: I recently found out that my book, The Soul of Civility, was chosen as a “must read” for Malcom Gladwell’s book club!

I’m beyond honored—and also thankful for the support of each of you on this journey. Don’t forget to get your copy (or second one!) HERE.
