All this, started by a guy whose good looks and good heart earned him the title of Cosmo Magazine’s Bachelor of the Year back in 2008. True story.

33. Actor Matthew McConaughey | Fight and Flow
2890

I’m sure you know Matthew McConaughey. He’s an Academy Award-Winning actor, a proud Texan, a Philanthropist, a new owner of Austin’s MLS team and most recently, a NYT bestselling author for his memoir, Greenlights.

What Matthew and I talked about in our conversation hit deep. We talked about my current cancer situation and how I’m doing what I can to make the most of it. We debated over how much fight to bring to life vs how much flow and how to know what’s needed when. And we agreed that the only certainty in life is death so you’d better be out living it.

In this week’s AKTIV Against Cancer Spotlight, host Ethan Zohn interviews XC Ski Star Kikkan Randall who three months after achieving a lifelong goal of winning an Olympic gold medal, got diagnosed with Stage 2 triple positive breast cancer. Learn how this amazing 5-Time Olympian and World Champion’s “dive” or “thrive” attitude and commitment to exercise helped her stay positive throughout her cancer journey.

32. Death Doula Oceana Sawyer | What Dying is Like
2983

Oceana Sawyer is a former corporate trainer at companies like HP and Levi Strauss now turned death doula. Just like birth doulas who help bring babies into this world at the beginning of life, a death doula helps actualize the emotional and spiritual wishes of the dying at the end of life.

For anyone who’s ever wanted to know what dying’s like, in this conversation Oceana details every single step of her father’s passing and the experience was far more beautiful than I ever would have expected. The more I learn about what happens at the end of life, the more comforted I feel. Let’s get these conversations out into the light.

31. Media Mogul Katie Couric | Going There
2952

There’s so much behind the 10,000 kilowatt smile of media mogul Katie Couric. More than just sunshine, Katie’s known tragedy and loss in her personal life and gained wisdom in hindsight from those experiences. After her first husband passed away from colorectal cancer, Katie founded Stand Up to Cancer which has since raised over $600M for cancer research. We talked about the need for us to bring honest conversation about mortality into the light, and the comfort it could bring to people if we did.

The episode wraps with our first AKTIV Against Cancer Spotlight featuring No Time To Waste Founder Alison Hadden as she talks with host Ethan Zohn about the role of exercise in her own cancer treatment and how she applies her athlete's mindset through its ups and downs.

We’re going to take a little hiatus from the weekly podcast production machine which has been churning and burning for 6 months now. I don’t imagine it will be too long because #notimetowaste but follow @notimetowasteproject on IG for updates.

I shared a personal update and then announced an exciting new partnership with AKTIV Against Cancer led by previous pod guest Ethan Zohn! After we return from the break, at the end of select No Time to Waste episodes, Ethan will share stories of cancer survivors - professional athletes, Olympians and everyday people - who’ve benefited from integrating physical activity into their treatment.

Hang tight. We’ll be back soon!

30. Poet Maggie Smith | Keep Moving
2015

I only recently got introduced to Maggie Smith - the poet, not the actress - when I stumbled upon her book Keep Moving that I really loved. Whereas most books about navigating grief and loss have a somber, self-reflective tone, hers included short motivational quotes with more of a Ted Lasso vibe.

Maggie was not the tortured creative soul I expected from a poet. Thanks to her big energy, high wattage smile and sense of humor, we had a blast in our convo and now I’m thinking about getting into poetry.

29. My Dad Frank Hadden | It Runs in the Family
2207

I genuinely believe my dad embodies much of what No Time to Waste is all about. I’ve witnessed first-hand his zest for life, his sense of adventure, his desire to help people and his evolution as a self-aware human. And I’ve realized only in recent years how proud I am to be my father’s daughter.

We talk about his non-linear career path from flower delivery truck driver to park ranger to attorney to therapist, how for a few short years we became a horse family (but not in the traditional sense), and why my dad sees heartbreak as the price to pay for big love.

27. Rabbi Steve Leder | The Beauty of What Remains
2464

Rabbi Steve Leder heads up one of the largest Jewish congregations in the country at the Wilshire Blvd Temple in LA. In his most recent book “The Beauty of What Remains”, he shares his thoughts on navigating grief and loss through the lens of not only a Rabbi who’s shepherded thousands of families through loss of their loved ones, but also as a son who recently lost his father after a 10 yr battle with Alzheimer’s.

We had a really intimate conversation in which he answered a lot of my burning questions on death, dying and religion’s place in it, and he’s now my personal Rabbi.

26. King of Transformation Rich Roll | Fueled by Curiosity
2269

Rich was once an overweight, hard-drinking corporate attorney who lost touch with the star swimmer he was at Stanford. Fast forward 20 years and now he’s a sober, plant-powered ultra endurance legend, a devoted family man who lives on a farm and meditates, and the host of one of the most popular podcasts in the world.

Hear us talk about how this transformation came about, what fills up his cup today, and how curiosity - about himself, his podcast guests, the world around us, and the world beyond - powers his sense of purpose now.

25. Advertising Boss Thas Naseemuddeen | More Than Muppets
2027

Thas is the CEO of Omelet, an LA-based advertising agency, after working her way up the ranks as a brilliant strategist. We met years ago when I was her client and we both recognized quickly that we were each others’ people.

Thas was forced to confront mortality when her dad was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer a few years back. And since losing a close friend to cancer last year, she’s developed a healthier relationship to death and dying than most, along with a deep-rooted appreciation for all the right things - including the Muppets.

24. Accidental Philanthropist Erin Foster | Some Real Talk
2121

Erin Foster might have been born into a famous family (her dad is music mogul David Foster) but she didn’t have the charmed upbringing you might expect. Far from the shallow, superficial Hollywood celeb focused on all the wrong things, Erin’s got a hell of a work ethic and a desire to give back. Comedian, writer, actress, entrepreneur, and investor with a Midas touch, she and her sister Sara hitched their ponies to both Mirror and Bumble and started the Favorite Daughter clothing brand during the pandemic.

I thought we’d talk about how she uses her platform and power for good but instead, we spent most of our conversation just getting right into death anxiety, mortality, what happens after we die, and why Judaism is pretty chill.

23. Global DJ Megan Taylor | Our Spiritual Quests
1948

Megan Taylor is a kickass DJ who gets that music is the soundtrack to our lives. In fact, we met when she was hired to play the afterparty for my company’s event years ago. Her beats were solid, her sneaker game on point, and once we got to talking, I realized I was talking to someone who knew they were a spiritual being having a human experience.

We got to talk about what we think is really going on here, finding our purpose, death and dying, the spiritual world, crystals, mediums - you name it. A welcomed perspective that reminded me that this is just one chapter for us, and that brings me comfort.

Adrian is a Peloton tread instructor with a fanatical following called the Thunder Squad that I am personally proud to be a part of. Intensely fit with a beaming smile and a heart of gold, he has the ability to motivate and inspire those who take his classes.

But it was Adrian’s strength in vulnerability that was on display during our conversation as we talked about an experience that changed the course of his life forever and explored how regret can serve as a transformative teacher.

1474

Tope Awotona is the founder of tech unicorn Calendly which makes scheduling calls + meetings so delightfully simple. I’ll never waste any more of my precious time with the old-school back and forth!

To get the company off the ground, Tope maxed out credit cards and high interest loans in lieu of taking outside funding, essentially pushing in all his chips on the bet.

Hear us talk about how his mom’s cancer battle and her innate sense of urgency compelled Tope to take the risk and go all in on the business idea that just got a $3B valuation.

20. Reality TV Star Ethan Zohn | The Survivor on Surviving
1938

Ethan Zohn won Survivor: Africa back in 2002 but he’s also survived cancer - twice.

We talked about his life before Survivor (playing pro soccer in Africa), life after (living the dream at 27), and then the impacts - mental, physical, emotional - of getting diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma (pretty terrible), beating it, only to have it come back years later to fend it off again.

Later in the episode, we both share exactly what WE do to tackle the fear and anxiety that comes with uncertainty - that I think could benefit anyone as we all navigate the challenges of the pandemic.

2272

In 2017, prominent ultrarunner and North Face athlete Hillary Allen fell 150ft off a ridgeline during a skyrace in Norway. She was presumed dead, broke 14 bones in the fall, and had to relearn how to walk again.

Shockingly, Hillary was back to winning races less than a year later. But more recently, she learned the hard way that recovering from that kind of near-death trauma requires a lot more than just the physical rehab. Hear her share her journey of mental and emotional health in her evolution as an athlete - and a human.

18. Proud Widow Amy Elisa Jackson | Advice From the Griever
2753

Amy Elisa Jackson lost her husband when his 34 yr old heart stopped suddenly while on an annual friends’ trip to Sundance in Park City back in 2016. Just weeks away from the five year anniversary of his death, we talk about how she trudged through the muck and messiness of that grief, and the pride she takes in now guarding and growing Jeremiah’s personal legacy.

Then on the lighter side, if you’ve ever found yourself at a loss for words when dealing with someone who recently experienced a tragic or terrible life event, Amy Elisa and I want to help. We share our spicy opinions on what’s NOT helpful from the perspective of the griever, along with suggestions on what you can say or do when the unthinkable happens to a friend.

16. Author Nora McInerny | Part 2: The Harder Convo
2300

The modern voice of all hard things ,Nora McInerny, is back for the conversation I originally envisioned - the harder one - that I wasn’t forced to have the first time around. Remember, Nora knows what it's like to get dealt a crappy hand. At 31, her unborn baby, father, and husband all died within the course of six weeks, and her work has since focused on helping others navigate the terrible things of life.

Unlike our first exchange, this time Nora and I were in person together and I got to ask about what it was like from the partner’s perspective to be there for her first husband Aaron through his terminal diagnosis and a few years later, watch him die from brain cancer. But our convo wasn't all tears and sadness. It was just real and full of emotion as Nora shared her experience and I got honest about some of my biggest fears - that maybe those without a terminal diagnosis might share, too. Will let you decide.

15. Feminist CEO Jen Gurecki | Making Her Own Rules
1629

Entrepreneur Jen Gurecki is a mover, a shaker, a hustler, and above all else, a modern day feminist who lives a purpose-driven life where SHE makes the rules - not society - and she’s been marching to the beat of her own drum since birth.

At 26 years old while doing her masters’ research work in Africa, Jen founded nonprofit Zawadisha which provides microloans, solar-powered equipment and education to rural Kenyan women to empower them to become financially self-sufficient. Years later, she started women’s ski and snowboard company Coalition Snow to see how the male-dominated industry would react. Within just a few years, she turned down a $1M offer for the business from ski legend Bode Miller on the CNBC TV Show Adventure Capitalists.  Then she created Sisu Magazine, and now she also co-hosts the Juicy Bits podcast.

The common tie to all of her entrepreneurial endeavors? Jen’s challenging the patriarchy and fighting for gender equality through innovative businesses and content mediums - all while unapologetically pursuing a life full of freedom, adventure, and impact.

14. Lance Armstrong | But It’s Not About The Bike
2199

We all know who Lance Armstrong is - what he’s known for, and what he’s not. I just wanted to talk to him about the cancer that almost took his life 20+ years ago.

When I got diagnosed back in September 2018 one of the first things I did was go buy his book, “It’s Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life.” I needed to know how Lance beat the advanced testicular cancer that had already spread to his lungs and brain by the time they discovered it, when he was just 25 years old and at his physical prime.

So that’s what Lance and I talked about. Lucky me, I got to spend an hour with the guy who unknowingly helped me warrior up and bring my A-Game to my own cancer battle.

Like Lance said in his book, “What other choice is there but to hope? We have two options - medically and emotionally: Give Up...or Fight Like Hell.”

I’ll opt for the latter, just like Lance.

13. Brave Like Gabe's Justin Grunewald | New Beginnings
2147
Justin Grunewald is the Chairman of the Brave Like Gabe Foundation, part of the legacy of his late wife, runner Gabe Grunewald, who passed away last year in 2019 at the age of 32 after a long and very public battle with a rare cancer. Justin is also a lifelong runner himself, recently transitioning his talents from the track to the trails, and a doctor literally fighting COVID on the front lines right now in Minnesota. I share in the episode what Gabe meant to me and how her story inspired me to bring my grit and resilience as an athlete to my cancer battle. But this is not a story of Gabe dying. It’s a story of Justin living. Of not moving on from her death, but moving forward, to a chapter where he is now that’s full of joy and love and new beginnings. Because isn’t that what we all deserve? @justingrunewald1 @bravelikegabe  www.bravelikegabe.org More at www.notimetowasteproject.com or follow @notimetowasteproject

12. The Pink Fund Founder Molly MacDonald | Becoming The Helper
2408

Molly MacDonald is the Founder + CEO of The Pink Fund, a scrappy non-profit that provides “Real Help Now” to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients by directly paying bills like housing, utilities and insurance to take the tasks off their plates and not have to worry about paying taxes on the financial donations - totaling $4.5 MILLION to date in direct support.

But it’s Molly’s personal story that really got me because this is not your average Boomer.

After living much of her life in affluent wealth, thanks to her ex-husband, Molly experienced catastrophic financial loss (think $15M in debt), left with sole custody of five children under the age of 13, alone, jobless, leaning on a church basement food pantry to help provide - when she gets diagnosed with breast cancer.

Her story is one of a feisty maverick with grit and grace who can empathize with people from all walks of life and for the last 15 yrs while she’s been in remission from her cancer, Molly has made it her purpose to become a helper focused on serving others.

Now for a limited time through Black Friday, you can purchase $35 No Time to Waste Engraved Cuff Bracelets (Gold, Silver, Rose Gold) on our swag site that will directly support The Pink Fund this holiday season.

Nothing but love and #LFG energy for The Pink Fund!

11. Author Nora McInerny | Bringing My “Me” To This Journey
3017

Think you’ve had a rough month? At 31, Nora McInerny aka @noraborealis miscarried her second baby and lost her father and then her husband to aggressive brain cancer - all within a few weeks. As soon as I heard her 2018 TED Talk about the experience of moving fwd (vs moving on) through this grief with wit and realness and truth, I realized I’d stumbled upon the refreshing and relatable voice I’d been searching for. I fell into a welcomed rabbit hole of her content which brings “heart and levity to the difficult and uncomfortable conversations most of us try to avoid”.

Thankfully, the convo I originally planned didn’t have to happen yet because I caught a break in the storm and got myself some time to breathe - so this convo was a lot more fun. Nora weighed in on everything from our resistance as a society to talk candidly about life’s harshest experiences, why the sick need to feel empowered to be direct, and the genuinely harmful effects of toxic positivity.

And most relevant to me personally, she helped me start this journey - as myself.

10. Runner Chris Heuisler | From Actors to Athletes
2265

It all started at musical theater camp in Upper Darby, PA with Tina Fey (yep, dead serious). Chris Heuisler and I spent our middle school summers surrounded by fellow theater nerds basking in the glow of all day rehearsals, absolute freedom, and Dairy Queen, just feelin’ so cool.

Life took us down different roads but over time, our identities as athletes emerged as the ones that fueled our souls. Chris scored a dream job as the Westin Global Run Concierge while I sat in my corporate office wishing I was more than just a Weekend Warrior. Both hard driving, high achievers, we learned what can happen to self-centered people like us when that energy is channeled in the wrong direction, as we both ran into substance abuse challenges as adults.

But now, like a perfectly-timed tv drama crossover starring two washed up 40 yr olds, we find our storylines intertwined again, both sober, both on new paths, both still pining for those sweet, simple summers when we thought we had it all.

9. Ski Mountaineer Caroline Gleich | Staring Down Death
1793

Caroline’s one of the most accomplished ski mountaineers in the world and a passionate activist for the environment and gender equality. But we didn’t hit on any of that in this interview. Instead, we talked about her experience being forced to confront mortality - first when she was 15 and her half-brother died in an avalanche, later when she lost her best friend to the same fate in 2014, and as recently as 2019 when she summited Everest and encountered something rarely talked about.

It was an honor to bear witness to Caroline’s openness around these topics and hear her share how these experiences have impacted her life now. Couldn’t have asked for a better kickoff to Season 2.

The inaugural episode of the No Time to Waste podcast kicks off with 5X Olympian and one of the most decorated XC skiers in the sport, Kikkan Randall. Hear her story of getting diagnosed with breast cancer just three months after winning Gold in 2018 and after completing a year of grueling treatments, finishing sub-3 hr at the NYC Marathon.

NOTE: This episode was originally recorded on IG LIve (never meant to become a podcast) so the audio might not be ideal - but hey, I don't have time to waste. Check out Season 2!
