I listen to this podcast every morning while I make my coffee. If you follow the ancient philosophy of Stoicism (or you're curious about it) this is a great way to ground yourself for a few minutes each day. Ryan produces longer episodes, too, featuring interviews with successful people who embody the philosophy. These are also well done, but I listen to them infrequently due to time constraints.

I used to really enjoy his stoic mornings but he has abandoned stoicism for political beliefs and virtue signaling. It's a shame that if he reads this, he will think this adds to his virtue but it does not. and it is not in line was stoicism nor is it helpful.

Description

For centuries, all sorts of people—generals and politicians, athletes and coaches, writers and leaders—have looked to the teachings of Stoicism to help guide their lives. Each day, author and speaker Ryan Holiday brings you a new lesson about life, inspired by the thoughts and writings of great Stoic thinkers like Marcus Aurelius and Seneca the Younger. Daily Stoic Podcast also features Q+As with listeners and interviews with notable figures from sports, academia, politics, and more. Learn more at DailyStoic.com.

You Need To Police Your Side of the Street | Silence Is Strength
00:08:08

“There’s no question that there are extremists on both sides of any meaningful divide. That there are liars and frauds on both sides. That there are abuses on both sides. That both sides are preposterously wrong about things that are glaringly obvious to you, and frustratingly right about things that are not. This is true wherever you live, whatever issues you’re talking about. ”

Ryan explains why you should worry about your own problems before you worry about others, and reads The Daily Stoic’s entry of the day, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Advice Without This is Worthless
00:02:36

“Why is stoicism worth listening to? Because it's battle tested. What good are theories about the world that are just that, theories. Philosophy from the ivory tower might be good for blowing minds, but as far as solving problems in the real world, much less. So even in Marcus Aurelius his day, there was a suspicion of pen and ink philosophers.”

Ryan explains why you must practice your philosophy not just talk about it.

Leaders Are Made Not Born | Keeping “The News” In Check

Ryan explains why Stillness is the key, and reads this week’s meditation from The Daily Stoic Journal, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

“You did the right thing. You said what you thought. You produced something valuable. Yet here you are, a day, a month, a decade later, somehow having it all flipped against you. You’re being criticized. You’re being attacked. You’re being made to look like something you’re not. It’s painful. It’s unfair.”

“As Caesar overwhelmed and destroyed the Roman Republic, the Romans had a choice. Neither choice was good, but it was all they had. They could allow it to happen or they could fight. They could ‘accept the bridle,’ as Plutarch put it, and with some humiliation, keep their estates and their status and their life...or they could fight, desperately, hopelessly, against overwhelming odds.”

Ryan explains why standing up for what matters is so important, and reads The Daily Stoic’s entry of the day, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Criticism is Loud, Respect is Quiet
00:02:59

“It can be easy to think you’re going down the wrong path, that you’re making a huge mistake, that nobody gets it, that you’re the only one. The reason for this is simple: We hear a lot more from the people who disagree with us than the people who agree with us.”

How To Think About Money
00:02:28

Here's How To Be Right
00:02:36

“It must have been hard to be as smart as someone like Marcus Aurelius or Seneca. They had the best tutors. They had quick minds. And then, as now, they were surrounded by people who were misinformed, often aggressively and arrogantly so. A feeling of condescension must have always been there. Their positions of power must have made it tempting to win arguments by force or authority as well.”

Ryan explains why you should do your job without any sense of superiority.

Freedom to Do What? | Protect Your Own Good
00:08:07

“Yesterday was July 4th, which as most of you know, is a day that marks the celebration of the declaration of independence for the newly formed United States. That idea of freedom is an important one and there’s no question that the founding of America was a step forward in the march for freedom across the world (though by no means a complete one).”

This Work Must Continue
00:23:34

“Today is the 4th of July. It’s the celebration of the American Declaration of independence, which was signed on this date in 1776. There’s no question that document—inspired as it was by ideas from the Stoics—was an essential one. As we have talked about before, it asserted man’s inalienable rights and began a great experiment in human liberty and equality under the law that was, and continues to be, unparalleled in history. 

But it is important that today, and on all days, we do not mistake July 4th or the Declaration’s signing as the accomplishment we should be celebrating.” 

Ryan discusses the meaning of the 4th of July, and the work we all must do to make sure that its promised freedom is one day fulfilled for all of us.

The Present Is All There Is | The Truly Educated Aren’t Quarrelsome
00:08:21

“There’s a constant internal tension within Meditations—between urgency and patience, contemplation and action, focusing in and zooming out. Marcus tells us to forget the future, on the one hand, then to contemplate infinite time on the other hand. At first glance, it can feel like there’s a dissonance there. A contradiction. But the purpose of these seemingly divergent exercises is the same: presence and the present.”

Ryan explains why you have to embrace this moment, and reads The Daily Stoic’s entry of the day, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Don't Complain, Respond!
00:03:05

“We live in a time when people who hear opinions they dislike think they can demand those opinions be unsaid or never repeated. How dare you criticize _______! Why did you have to go and get all political? You’ve offended me. You’re wrong! Shut up! Unfollow!”

You Can’t Let People Puff You Up | Take A Walk
00:08:15

“As it is today, so it was in Rome. People have always tried to tell other people what they want to hear. Yeah, you’re doing great. Have you lost weight? I love your new haircut, boss. As a species, humans are quite good at obsequious flattering. That’s one of the things social media has harnessed: Our endless capacity for receiving and giving. We can fish for compliments and easily catch them as well. I am doing something special. Look at how many people liked my post!”

Ryan reminds you why you must stay humble to get better, and reads this week’s meditation from The Daily Stoic Journal.

“There’s no question that the last year and a half has been tragic. Millions of people have perished in a merciless pandemic, millions more are still dealing with the consequences.

You Just Have To Accept It
00:02:39

“When the pandemic hit—as with all sudden or unexpected life events—people responded in myriad different ways. Some people denied it. Some people hoped to be exempted from it. Other people cowered in fear of it. As you likely saw among your own peer group, none of these responses were particularly effective.”

Ryan explains why you must always stare unflinchingly at reality, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

There Is Always Something Else Going On | You Can Do It
00:08:00

“One of the things you figure out quickly with kids, and as we’ve talked about a bunch over on our Daily Dad email and podcast, is that there is always a reason they’re behaving a certain way. Your kid is acting crazy because they’re tired. They’re having a meltdown because actually they’re starting to get sick. Bedtime isn’t happening because naptime got skipped. They’re biting because they’ve been ignored and they know this will get a reaction.”

Ryan explains how most people are trying their best, and reads The Daily Stoic’s entry of the day, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

These Things Don’t Care
00:02:24

“The virus doesn’t care. It doesn’t care that you were just about to open your first retail shop. It doesn’t care that you love visiting your grandmother. It doesn’t care that you recently finished chemotherapy. It doesn’t care about the collateral damage. It doesn’t care about your theories or your political beliefs. It doesn’t care about anything.”

Ryan discusses how indifferent external events are to our wants and needs, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

This Is What You Replace Anger With | It Is Well to Be Flexible
00:09:05

“The Stoics weren’t robots. It wasn’t that they stuffed things down, or that they didn’t feel anything. How could that have been true? They were husbands and fathers, wives and daughters. They wrote beautiful works of art. They took principled stands. They told jokes. They worked hard and they sacrificed.”

Ryan explains what you should replace anger with, and reads The Daily Stoic’s entry of the day, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Take The Interior Voyage
00:03:25

“Have you ever noticed that we often refer to Marcus Aurelius just as Marcus? You likely read those references without breaking stride. Because you, like us, feel connected to Marcus. So much so that there’s a vivid picture of him painted in your head. So much so that you could describe Marcus more thoroughly than you can most co-workers, or clients, or friends, even. Isn’t it incredible to feel like you’re on a first name basis with a Roman Emperor who lived more than two thousand years ago?”

Ryan explains the importance of journaling, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

To What Do You Pledge Your Honor? | The View from Above
00:10:00

“As the Founders signed the Declaration of Independence, they knew that this wasn’t some painless petition. This wasn’t some minor political stand. No, they knew, as they wrote, they were mutually pledging their “life, fortune, and sacred honor.” It was a cause they were willing to give everything for—even die for.”

Ryan challenges you to question where your honor lies, and reads this week’s meditation from The Daily Stoic Journal, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

This Is Why It's So Hard | Practice True Joy
00:10:03

“Everyone has trouble admitting they were wrong, including Marcus Aurelius. Yes, he writes glibly in Meditations about how he’s glad to be corrected, but why do you think he wrote that? Because it wasn’t natural. He was reminding himself...probably right after he caught himself failing to admit an error.”

Why You Should Never Borrow Unhappiness
00:03:00

“Some time around the year 64 AD, Seneca’s friend Lucilius sent him a letter. Lucilius was nervous about an ongoing lawsuit. We’re not sure what the suit was over, but we know that it was a serious case and that Lucilius had made himself anxious about the outcome and had written to Seneca for some advice.”

Ryan explains why you should always be prepared for what could go wrong, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

00:15:43

Try these strategies out if you're trying to spend less time on your phone. Some of them are easy. Others are tougher, and you’ll probably think some of them are nuts. Maybe they are. But they work.

“It’s not telling you anything new to point out that there will be obnoxious, flawed, annoying, awful idiots that you will come across today, and every day. There are selfish drivers and internet trolls. There is the contractor who you will catch trying to rip you off. There is that politician who just cannot seem to understand that this isn’t about them, that they work for us. These people exist, and that’s unfortunate.”

Ryan explains how to apply your training to an everyday problem, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Beware The Little Things
00:04:34

“It can be easy to make an excuse. Oh, it’s just a bad habit. Oh, it doesn’t matter. It’s also easy to think you’ve got this life thing handled—because you’ve survived some big adversity in your time. In truth, we are all vulnerable. To our habits. To unexpected weaknesses.”

Ryan explains why small steps are no small thing, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Ryan explains the powerful impact that books have on culture, and reads this week’s meditation from The Daily Stoic Journal, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

You Need to Arm Yourself With These Weapons
00:03:09

“In Greek mythology, characters go through katabasis—or “a going down.” Something forces them to retreat, to experience a breaking point, or in some cases literally descend into the underworld. When they emerge, it’s with heightened knowledge and understanding. These moments are painful but essential. “Although to be driven back upon oneself,” Joan Didion once wrote, “is an uneasy affair at best...it seems to me now the one condition necessary.” ”

Ryan discusses how to defend yourself from what life throws at you, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

“The people on your flight tomorrow will be slow and rude. They will recline their seats into you. They will clog the aisles. They will watch videos on their phone without earbuds in. They will fight you for the armrests, even though they obviously belong to the person in the middle seat. They will take too long in the bathroom. And they will do ungodly things in there while they’re at it. They will take forever to deplane; they will not care that half the plane have connections to make.”

00:02:36

“The thing about most things we label as “bad” is that they aren’t. They just are. A virus isn’t evil. An economic depression isn’t malicious. They are unfeeling, indifferent, inhuman events.

“Late in his reign, a friend stopped Marcus Aurelius as he was leaving the palace, carrying a stack of books. Finding this to be a surprising sight, the man asked where Marcus was going.

This Is How To Treat Your Brain | The Marks of a Rational Person
00:07:30

“On the one hand, the Stoics were big believers in the power of reason. They believed we were rational creatures, capable of thinking away through all the distractions and impulses and biases of the mind and body. On the other hand, they knew that people were crazy—that our mind, our thoughts were hardly infallible and didn’t always have our best interests at heart. ”

Ryan explains the difference between the brain and the mind, and reads The Daily Stoic’s entry of the day, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

You Don't Need Everyone, Just More
00:03:23

“It’d be wonderful if we could get everyone on board. If evidence and data and civic duty convinced people to do the right thing, the smart thing, the selfless thing. It feels like we’re living through a unique era for this kind of dissonance and denialism, but the reality is that since even before Marcus Aurelius' time, getting everyone on board for the right thing has been impossible.”

Ryan explains why you can’t expect everyone to do the right thing, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

This Is The Only Acceptable Form of Anger | Impulse Control
00:08:59

 “There is an expression popular amongst basketball coaches. A coach doesn’t “get” a technical foul, they take one. If you’ve ever watched Gregg Popovich coach, you’ve seen it. When his team isn’t playing with enough passion, when the refs are getting complacent, when the crowd needs to be fired up, or when he’s just plain tired of watching his team not do what they’re supposed to be, he’ll pick a call to get angry about and take a technical foul. Sometimes he’ll even say to his assistant coach right beforehand, “You’re going to have to coach the rest of this game,” and then he’ll keep yelling until he gets a second technical and has to head back into the locker room.”

Ryan discusses the practical use of an otherwise destructive emotion, and reads this week’s meditation from The Daily Stoic Journal, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Life Is About What We Can Do For Each Other
00:20:11

“Why are we here? It’s an impossible question to answer, I suppose. Of course, on a fundamental evolutionary level, we’re here to pass along our genes. This is why we strive for success. This is why we lust for sex. This is what keeps the species going. But equally encoded in that evolutionary software and in our culture is another purpose, another less selfish drive: The drive for meaning. Merely to subsist, to persist—what kind of existence is that?”

Ryan reads his recent article about the responsibility of service that life demands from us all.

It All Turns on Concentration
00:02:26

“We often think that greatness is a synonym for brilliance. That great leadership is all about magnetism and communication. For which we need vision and boldness, allies and luck. And of course, to be successful in any field, but particularly in leadership, all of those things are true. But we also need something far simpler that is yet even more rare.”

Ryan explains why everything hinges on your ability to do this one thing, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Not Who’s Right, What’s Right
00:02:21

“You have your views. You have your side of things. You have the team you’re on, the group you belong to. So instinctually, naturally, you default there. You started out making your argument, believing that things should go this way or that way, so what are you gonna do? Just give in? You’re going to let them win? How Stoic is that?”

Ryan discusses the important distinction between facts and feelings, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

“Imagine you are Seneca and tuberculosis has claimed ten years of your life in convalescence. Imagine you are Seneca and after climbing to the top of Roman life, you were cruelly exiled to some rock in the middle of nowhere.”

Ryan explains how Fortune behaves as she pleases–what she gives she takes away, and reads this week’s meditation from The Daily Stoic Journal, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

If You’re Not Feeling This, You’re Doing It Wrong

“You see them in the comments sections. You see them on social media. You hear it come out of the mouths of friends, family members. Sometimes it’s casual. Other times it’s uncouth. Sometimes it’s couched in intellectualization or an economic analysis.”

Ryan explains why we must always consider the whole, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

“There is something delightfully simple about Ulysses S. Grant. Napoleon seems like some sort of larger than life figure, a peerless genius like the freak athletes we see on television.

A Book Isn’t A Mirror. It’s A Door!
00:03:12

“A couple weeks ago, we talked about Fran Lebowitz’s secret to be immensely rich. They also happen to be a secret to empathy and understanding. There has been a big push lately for diversity and inclusion in books and television. This is important, obviously, because any system that does exclude voices is an unjust one. But we should also be careful in our pursuit—as readers or consumers—of art about people like me.

Ryan explains why gaining perspective through reading is so important, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

You Can’t Buy Fearlessness
00:03:11

“There’s no question that the super rich can afford better medical care than you. They have access to the best doctors, the most cutting-edge treatments. So, naturally, they are living longer—they are buying what scientists are calling “radical life extension.” In fact, some thinkers believe this will be a source of conflict in the future. Today, we have income inequality. Tomorrow, it will be longevity inequality.

Ryan explains why you need to conquer the fear of death, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

What Would Less Look Like? | Say No to the Need to Impress
00:09:27

“This has not been fun. It’s been brutal. But it has been, at least, an exercise in that question that the Stoic aficionado Tim Ferriss is a fan of: What would less look like? Less flights. Less dinners out. Less meetings. Less income. Less time with friends.”

Ryan explains why you must focus on what is essential, and reads this week’s meditation from The Daily Stoic Journal, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

These Simple Words Will Help You Through Life's Most Difficult Situations
00:16:10

On today's episode, Ryan introduces 3 core Stoic concepts that are sure to help you through whatever life puts in front of you. The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche would describe his formula for human greatness as amor fati—a love of fate. Memento Mori—the ancient practice of reflection on mortality that goes back to Socrates, who said that the proper practice of philosophy is “about nothing else but dying and being dead.” The single most important practice in Stoic philosophy is differentiating between what we can change and what we can’t.

Agnes Callard on Socrates and Wisdom

You Can Do This. You Can Do This.
00:03:50

“Marcus Aurelius didn’t believe he was suited to be emperor. In fact, when he received the news of Hadrian’s plans to have Antoninus Pius adopt him and place him next in line for the throne, he broke down in tears. There was no one he revered more than Antoninus. How could he possibly live up to the task of following in his footsteps?

Ryan explains why you have everything you need to live up to the moment that you are in, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

The Boy Who Would Be King is out now, written by Ryan Holiday in the depths of the pandemic (not unlike the one Marcus ruled through), this new beautifully crafted book is available now. Go to dailystoic.com/king to order now and you’ll automatically get the free audiobook.

We Can’t Let This Go On | The Portable Retreat
00:11:24

No man is an island. We’ve taken the line from the John Donne poem and turned it into a common expression, but we’ve missed the point. It’s not simply that we can’t exist by ourselves. It’s much deeper than that.”

7 Ways Marcus Aurelius Will Help You Journal Like A Pro
00:18:20

On today’s podcast, Ryan discusses 7 strategies that can help you develop a highly effective journaling habit. Almost 2000 years ago, Marcus Aurelius stole time away from his incredibly busy life full of obligations to write in his journal. By some incredible stroke of luck, that journal survives to us today. And though it is full of countless pieces of wisdom and important lessons to us, perhaps its greatest teaching is held in its very existence. The fact that this person who thought so deeply and was so highly effective took the time to regularly write out his thoughts is one of the most important things we can take away from "Meditations."

It’s Possible To Tune These Things Out
00:03:22

“We have so many strong opinions. Especially about things we don’t like. We don’t like it, and we want you to know that we don’t like it—that musician, that politician, that restaurant, the way that so-and-so talks.”

Ryan discusses the importance of having the ability to stick to your own path, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

“What is the point of reading? ’To me,’ Fran Lebowitz tells Martin Scorsese in the new ‘Pretend It's A City’ docuseries, ‘[reading] is just a way of being immensely rich. This may be the reason I never cared about money. Because as soon as you can read, you are incredibly rich.’”

Start Strong, Finish Strong. That Is The Way.
00:03:40

“It was on this day 1841 years ago that Marcus Aurelius came to the end. It had been an incredible life, as we’ve talked about. From an ordinary kid to the ruler of the world, this boy who would be king, had made the absolute best of the hand he had been dealt. He hadn’t been corrupted by power, but shared it. He hadn’t been made bitter by adversity but great because of it. Even the plague--which had dragged on for years--had brought out the best in Marcus Aurelius.”

Ryan explains why you must try to live up to Marcus Aurelius’s example, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

The Boy Who Would Be King is out now, written by Ryan Holiday in the depths of the pandemic (not unlike the one Marcus ruled through), this new beautifully crafted book is available now. Go to dailystoic.com/king to order now and you’ll automatically get the free audiobook.

So, How Did You Do?
00:03:53

“It’s been a year, as unbelievable as that is to write. Time has dragged. It has flown by. On March 14, 2020, almost exactly one year ago, we sent out an email about the rising threat of COVID-19 and its relation to the timeless dictum of Stoicism: We weren’t going to be able to control what had happened, but we could control how we responded.”

Ryan discusses the past year and asks you to reflect on how you handled it, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Always Consider the Unconsidered Consequences | Think About It from the Other Person’s Perspective
00:10:45

“A little while back we talked about the bold stroke—inspired by the Stoics—which struck down Julius Caesar and his reign on the Ides of March. This moment has always been judged ambiguously by historians. Yes, Caesar was a tyrant… but did the ends justify the means? And what were the ends? Were they successful? Were things better or worse?”

Ryan explains why you must think it all the way through before you act, and reads this week’s meditation from The Daily Stoic Journal, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

What Can You Give Up To Help Others?
00:03:50

“It’s impossible to overstate the terror and uncertainty that swarmed Marcus’ life. Just while writing Meditations, Rome fought a war against the Parthians that lasted five years. The River Tiber had one of the worst floods in history, destroying homes and livestock, and delivering a famine. Eventually victorious against the Parthians, celebrations were short-lived because returning soldiers brought home a deadly contagion, which became known as the Antonine Plague.”

Ryan challenges you to find some way to give back as Marcus Aurelius did, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

The Boy Who Would Be King is out today, written by Ryan Holiday in the depths of the pandemic (not unlike the one Marcus ruled through), this new beautifully crafted book is available now. Go to dailystoic.com/king to order now and you’ll automatically get the free audiobook.

You want them to know, to feel, the same thing that you’re feeling. The Stoics talk about justice, so that’s OK, right? They shouldn’t be able to get away with this!”

“So much happens in life. There is so much happening. Forget macro events—there are dogs that get sick in the middle of the night. There are trips that need to be made to the store. There are unpleasant conversations to have. Bills that somebody has to pay. Dishes to be done. Hard decisions to make.”

Ryan discusses why a Stoic leans into responsibility and adversity instead of avoiding it, and launches his new book The Boy Who Would Be King, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

If You Want To Be Great...
00:03:30

“You can’t find a single page in Meditations where you get the sense that Marcus was attuned to his extraordinariness. There’s nothing about a legendary moment of courage on the battlefield. Nothing about a remarkable imparting of wisdom to a young politician at the perfect time. Nothing about a spectacular display of patience in the courtroom.”

Ryan discusses the Stoic’s formula for greatness, and launches his new book The Boy Who Would Be King, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Success Can Make People Better... Or Worse
00:03:21

“Success made Marcus Aurelius better. It seems to have made Seneca worse. Marcus turned to philosophy in his twenties, was first selected for the throne as a teenager, and fully inherited the throne at age 40. Despite the truism that absolute power corrupts absolutely, he somehow managed to not only maintain his philosophical principles from the throne, but seems to have taken the opportunity to become kinder, more reflective, more generous, and more open-minded the longer he was in power. ”

Ryan discusses the impact that success has on character, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Respect the Man Who Stands Alone | Awareness Is Freedom
00:09:37

“It’s hard not to read about Cato’s life and not be struck by how often the man stood alone. He stood alone as Quaestor, as he reformed Rome’s treasury. He was the sole voice willing to say “No” when people wanted to spend money the empire didn’t have.”

Keep Doing This—You’ll Always Need It
00:02:34

“You’ve been reading for years now. You’ve been studying your Stoicism. You’ve been keeping up with your morning journals, doing your evening review. So when does this all culminate and coalesce into wisdom? When are you good? Never. The answer is never. “Until when is a person obligated to study Torah?” Maimonides once asked. “Until the day of one’s death.””

Ryan explains why the pursuit of wisdom is never ending, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Don’t Get Even, Get Justice | Cultivate Indifference
00:08:28

“These are angry times… with plenty to be angry about. From politicians that have failed us to systemic evils that have gone on for too long. Maybe you’re someone who was conned, pressured into spending money you didn’t have with the hope of promises someone didn’t keep. Maybe you were hurt in an accident. Maybe you were wrongly deprived of your liberties or fair share.”

Ryan explains why justice should always prevail over anger, and reads this week’s meditation from The Daily Stoic Journal, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

You Must Find Your Rules and Stick To Them
00:03:00

“It’d be wonderful if life never tempted you, if you could just go day-to-day, winging it and always do right. But that’s not how the world is. That’s not who you are. If left to our own devices, with enough opportunities, eventually we’ll mess up—we’ll drift, we’ll stray.”

Ryan explains the importance of abiding by your own set of rules, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

What It Means To Carry the Fire
00:02:28

“We’ve talked about this before—this idea of Carrying the Fire. It’s a concept that comes to us from the beautiful and haunting novel The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Set in an apocalyptic world, one that echoes Rome in the aftermath of the Antonine Plague or even our own days of pandemics and unprecedented unemployment, the novel follows a young boy and his father who are trying to survive in a world of darkness.”

Ryan uses a concept from Cormac McCarthy’s The Road to explain the importance of the four Stoic virtues, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

You Can’t Make People Feel What You Want
00:02:40

“It would be so nice if they could just come around. If they could get with the program. Don’t they see what we need? Don’t they see that we love them? Don’t they see that this approach is not working for them, that it’s hurting everyone, including themselves?”

Ryan discusses why you must let go of what other people feel, because it’s entirely out of your control, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Stoicism and the Art of Resilience

How does someone who was born into slavery, whose master broke their leg and crippled them for life, somehow escape all that and become one of the fathers of Stoicism and an amazing thinker?

There Are Going To Be These Kinds Of People In The World
00:03:02

“When Barbara Bush died, a college professor in California decided to go on a tweetstorm to insult the newly deceased. For years, the Westboro Baptist Church has outdone themselves with offensive protests, including, in some cases, at the funerals of veterans. Trump mocked a disabled reporter. Give your neighbors a few posts on Nextdoor.com and you’ll quickly find that they’ve been harboring some dark thoughts they’ve been apparently dying to share.”

Ryan explains that there will always be selfish, arrogant, and ignorant people around you, and why you must accept this to move forward, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Here’s Where You’ll Find True Beauty
00:03:40

“As we’ve discussed before, John Adams was one of those people whose racing mind gave them little rest. He was always doing, doing, doing and more dangerously, always thinking, thinking, thinking. His friends saw the pain this caused him and he saw it himself. As he said many times, all he wanted was “tranquility of mind”—stillness—but it was elusive.”

Ryan describes the beauty that surrounds us, and why it is the height of brilliance, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Ryan explains why a Stoic excels in everything that they do, and reads this week’s meditation from The Daily Stoic Journal, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Is This What You Spend Your Life For?
00:02:21

“Early on in Address Unknown, a haunting novel about the rise of fascism in Germany in the 1930s, two German entrepreneurs write to each other with much affection about their business success. One line, written from the entrepreneur Max to his friend Martin, stops us cold in the way that truth, rendered in fiction, occasionally can.”

Ryan discusses the cost of the things and experiences that we chase after, and why we must spend our time wisely, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

You Don’t Have To Do This Anymore | On Being Invincible
00:08:09

“In one of the most vulnerable scenes in the Taylor Swift documentary on Netflix, Swift talks about how she feels while looking at a paparazzi photo of herself. Her lifelong habit she says, is to see what’s wrong with her appearance, to instinctively see that she needs to lose weight, to start monitoring what she eats more closely, quite possibly to stop eating all together.”

Ryan discusses the process of identifying and rooting out problems in our lives, and reads The Daily Stoic’s entry of the day, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

“It doesn’t matter that you’re a safe driver. Or that you’ve always paid your taxes. It doesn’t matter how hard you’ve worked for this. Or that you volunteer with poor blind kids after school.”

Things Are Not That Different
00:02:36

“We live in the glorious future. Yet somehow it is exactly the same as the past. The scourge of the ancient world: Pirates. Pompey fought them in Cato’s time. Bandits and highwaymen. Countless Romans suffered their depretations. Epictetus had his house broken into by one. Plagues. Marcus Aurelius lived through a decade and a half of one, likely dying of it himself.”

Ryan explains why there is nothing new under the sun, and why we should be prepared for the same trials that have come before us, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Practice Makes You Prepared
00:03:10

“In 2017, the New England Patriots were down 28-3 to the Atlanta Falcons in the third quarter of the Super Bowl. It had not been a good game. Fans had already begun to write the Patriots off. Announcers had serious doubts as to whether a comeback was possible. But somehow, against all odds, the Patriots would come back to win that game in one of the greatest victories in all of sports.”

Ryan discusses the incredible feat accomplished by the Patriots in Super Bowl LI, and why we should be prepared for whatever fortune brings our way, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.

Can You Forgive Them? | Watching the Wise
00:06:59

“They hurt you, your parents. Everyone’s did. Some in big ways, some in small ways. It’s just a fact. As the poet Philip Larkin wrote, ‘They f**k you up, your mum and dad. They may not mean to, but they do. They fill you with the faults they had and add some extra, just for you.’”

It’s A Series Of High Water Marks
00:02:58

“There’s a beautiful scene in Hunter S. Thompson’s dark memoir, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. He talks about how just outside Las Vegas, in the shadow of the lights of the strip and the noise of the casinos, it’s possible to just barely discern the high water mark of the idealism of the 60s, which had by then, given way to the indulgences and selfishness of the 70s.”

Ryan discusses how we can look at history as a constancy of peaks and valleys, and how we can use this perspective to guide the present, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.
