The Jordan Harbinger Show

There are hundreds of businesses throughout the United States. Some of them are small mom and pop shops, while others are large global corporations. You may think you know the stories of these companies, but the truth behind them is stranger than you might think.

In Business Wars (from Wondery), host David Brown gives you behind-the-scenes access into the boardrooms and offices of some of the biggest companies in America. You'll hear about epic business battles like movie rental giant Blockbuster versus a little upstart called Netflix, the burger battle between McDonald's and Burger King, and the soda wars between Coke and Pepsi.

You're about to hear a preview of Business Wars, in which you'll meet host David Brown and hear about the battle for race car supremacy between Ferrari and Lamborghini. These two giants of speed would shape the luxury sports car market for years to come.

And while you're listening, subscribe to Business Wars here, on Apple Podcasts, or wherever you're listening now!

Past Episodes

Major life changes can be a mixed bag. On one hand, you're over the moon for landing your dream job. On the other hand, being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer and told by your doctor that you've got two years to live (at best) puts a bit of a damper on the celebration. You're determined to remain positive -- after all, you wouldn't be the first to beat fatalistic odds if this thing were somehow turned around, so there's no harm in being hopeful. You wouldn't say you're lost, but you do want to ensure that you make the most of whatever time you have left -- however long that may be. We can only imagine what you're going through, but on this Feedback Friday we'll do our best to offer how we might spend our time if confronted with the worst news possible -- but armed with your incredibly deep well of positivity.

And in case you didn’t already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let’s dive in!

On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? Reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details!
  • How do you make the most of the time you have left with positivity when doctors have given you two years to live?
  • People have preferences about looks, personalities, and religious backgrounds for their significant others. Is wishing they hadn’t slept with 100 people before you a valid preference?
  • What does it take for a successful and single 51-year-old woman who travels frequently to find someone with whom to build a family when the dating pool of quality candidates seems so microscopic?
  • While a policy to never pursue romance with a professional connection has served you well in the past, you’ve met someone who makes you want to reconsider this policy. How might you make your interest known while remaining professional?
  • You’d like to improve the relationship with your parents and the way you communicate. What can you do to make things better?
  • If you wanted to start a new business online without using the topics of your current or past expertise, how would you pick a niche and establish your credibility? (Thanks to Brian Clark from Copyblogger for fielding this one!)
  • While you’ll be laid off soon, you’re not worried because you have a generous severance and plenty of leads already. How do you network without people assuming you’re just trying to get a job through their connections?
  • Aside from buying decent mics and recording in a space that’s not echoey as hell, what advice do we have for someone just starting out with podcasting? (One: Join Jason’s free podcasting club!)
  • Life Pro Tip: If you are travelling with someone else and you’re both wearing backpacks, swap them around. When you need stuff from your bag, you’ll have both hands free and you’ll know where your own stuff is.
  • Recommendation of the Week: The Green Prince
  • A quick shout out to Reed!
  • Have any questions, comments, or stories you’d like to share with us? Drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com!
  • Connect with Jordan on Twitter at @JordanHarbinger and Instagram at @jordanharbinger.

Nir Eyal (@nireyal) is a behavioral designer who helps companies design products that move people, and helps people design their own behavior using the principles of consumer psychology. He is the author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. This is Nir's second appearance on the show (check out his first time here).

What We Discuss with Nir Eyal:

  • Why time management is quite literally pain management, and the time you plan to waste is not wasted time.
  • How the issues caused by technology today aren't dissimilar to the issues caused by technology that vexed Aristotle and Socrates thousands of years ago.
  • Why you'll probably find the popular advice to try digital detox as a way to rid yourself of technology's influence over your life about as effective as a fad diet.
  • The damage caused by accepting the media's spin on technology as a pervasive addiction over which we have no control, and what we can do to get the best of these tools without letting them get the best of us.
  • How to nurture your child's healthy relationship with technology by empowering them with an understanding of its opportunity costs.
  • And much more...

He now focuses his famous tenacity on running Granity Studios, an award-winning multimedia company devoted to creating new ways to tell stories around sports -- like Legacy and the Queen with Annie Matthew.

What We Discuss with Kobe Bryant:

  • What creativity and basketball have in common and what Kobe has carried from the court to his new business.
  • Lessons Kobe has learned from people who are the best at what they do ? from Taylor Swift to Jony Ive to Sean Penn to Kate Winslet to Larry Moss to Oprah to George R.R. Martin.
  • How Kobe manages pressure in high stakes situations on the court and at the head of a creative content studio.
  • The music that gets Kobe in the mindset he needs to excel at whatever he does.
  • The importance of learning how to negotiate with yourself in order to achieve greatness, and how parents might help their kids develop this crucial skill.
  • And much more...

You have a hostile coworker undermining you before management at every opportunity. How can you ensure facts will speak up for you instead of your coworker's toxic fabrications? Never fear! We'll show you how to navigate around a hostile coworker on this Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/248

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • A Detroit vagrant in his 40s probably has enough problems to deal with. Can any good come from pressing charges against him because he tried (and failed) to steal your laptop?
  • You have a hostile coworker undermining you before management at every opportunity. How can you ensure facts will speak up for you instead of your coworker's toxic fabrications?
  • You hear of coworkers getting a promotion because they're "smart." What does it mean to be smart? Is being smart related to IQ? Is it related to emotional intelligence? Is it related to street smarts? Or is it a combination of all of these?
  • As a business owner in a new country who's pioneered your own niche, how do you avoid a race to the bottom in pricing and remain high in quality as competition attempts to elbow into your turf?
  • Is it ever good to name drop when networking?
  • How can you continue to network and problem solve for your peers, but also start to lay the foundation of credibility with your accomplishments to build future -- and likely new leadership positions -- at your company?
  • You reached out to someone in your chosen field, and you were referred to two others who have agreed to meet with you. How can you use the FEW technique effectively when these meetings happen?
  • Is it worth the ROI to obtain expensive credentials (like an MBA) early in your career? Or is charging forward to gain experience more beneficial?
  • Life Pro Tip: When you get a scammy/spammy phone call, tell them: "I think you have the wrong number...this is a government office." Alternatively, you can play this sound into the phone to possibly get removed from the system's rotation.
  • Recommendation of the Week: Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee (Dave Chappelle Episode)
  • A quick shoutout to David Gray Lassiter!

Chris Bailey (@chris_bailey) is a productivity expert, host of the Becoming Better Podcast, and the bestselling author of two books about productivity: Hyperfocus, and The Productivity Project. In the time it's taken you to read this, he's probably written another.

What We Discuss with Chris Bailey:

  • The neurochemical reason our brains switch focus every 40 seconds (or less) and what we can do to recapture this hit to our overall productivity.
  • Why giving yourself the time to unfocus productively with what Chris calls scatterfocus is as crucial to your progress as hyperfocus.
  • How Chris harnesses scatterfocus to mull over and solve complicated problems without distraction.
  • What Chris learned by deliberately allowing himself to enter a state of boredom for an hour a day for an entire month (and how he did so creatively).
  • What the attention overload gap is, the problems it can cause, and why we're more susceptible to it than we probably suspect.
  • And much more...

Wendy Behary (@donsanddivas) has been training professionals and supervising psychotherapists for more than 20 years, and is the author of Disarming the Narcissist: Surviving and Thriving with the Self-Absorbed.

What We Discuss with Wendy Behary:

  • What's the difference between someone who comes off as somewhat self-absorbed and a full-blown, clinical narcissist?
  • Is clinical narcissism actually on the rise in the US? If so, what's causing it?
  • Does narcissism statistically affect men more than women, or is there just a difference in how they tend to express it?
  • When a little bit of narcissism can be a big advantage.
  • How to tell early on if you're dealing with a bona fide narcissist, what you can do to remain your best self in their presence, and how you might possibly help them become their better selves.
  • And much more...

When your significant other agreed to stop watching porn early in your relationship, you were relieved. But now that you've been dating for a few years and everything's otherwise great, you can't shake the feeling that they haven't quite given up porn and it feels like a betrayal. Is porn cheating? On this Feedback Friday, we do our best to get some perspective on this and much more!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/245.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Due to your own complicated history, your significant other's possible consumption of porn feels like betrayal. Is there a way to understand it from a different perspective?
  • You spent six years training for your dream job only to be disqualified on a technicality. How can you motivate yourself to endure a similar time sink for another career when you know you're not getting any younger?
  • As a business owner, how do you deal with the deadbeats who take advantage of your good nature and don't respect what you do enough to give you fair value for your services?
  • How do people transition from the period of time they need to get experience in their field to the time they get paid for making use of that experience?
  • Your significant other wants you to list the names of the people you've dated and slept with in the past, and then delete them all from your social media. Is this at all reasonable?
  • You assumed you were having an email conversation regarding a business proposition with a man you know named Sam, but it turns out it's been with a woman named Sam whom you don't remember meeting. Now what?
  • You're normally a great conversationalist, but when it comes to interacting with a superior, you find yourself worrying too much about accidentally saying the wrong thing and the conversation ends up stagnating. How might you overcome this?
  • Life Pro Tip: Looking to cut the cord but dreading the inevitable call to the cable company where they badger you into not leaving? Tell them you're moving out of state where they don't offer services. Your cancellation call will take a fraction of the time.
  • Recommendations of the Week: Happy Jail and Twelve Monkeys

What We Discuss with Rob Reid:

  • The potential for synthetic biology to be leveraged by nihilistic mass murderers to wipe out millions.
  • The potential for synthetic biology to be leveraged by altruistic medical pioneers to save millions.
  • What CRISPR is and how its eventual availability to hobbyists may ensure there's a mad scientist on every block.
  • Why the future of synthetic biology may be exponentially more dangerous to humanity than the nuclear proliferation of the Cold War.
  • What we can start doing now to prepare for this future and minimize its risks while reaping its rewards. 
  • And much more...

Frank Abagnale is a former con artist, bestselling author of Catch Me If You Can, and now one of the world's most respected authorities on the subjects of fraud, forgery, and cyber security, Frank Abagnale knows how scammers work. His latest book, Scam Me If You Can: Simple Strategies to Outsmart Today's Rip-off Artists, is out now.

What We Discuss with Frank Abagnale:

  • How the constant rush to get untested new technology on the market for the appeasement of investors makes us all vulnerable to security breaches.
  • Why Frank believes it's much easier to pull off scams these days than it was 50 years ago in his fraudulent heyday.
  • Why, according to Frank, there is no technology that can defeat social engineering, and there never will be -- not even AI.
  • Why Frank says that passwords are for treehouses, and what he envisions as a more foolproof way to protect our data from would-be scammers.
  • The three traits of a good con man, and the five simple steps you can take to scam-proof your life.
  • And much more...

You've made it to what some would consider middle age -- in spite of stumbling over every possible mistake along the way. But instead of enjoying your triumph over the odds, you can't shake the feeling that it's past time to get off the hamster wheel and make a difference.

Major life changes can be a mixed bag. On one hand, you're over the moon for landing your dream job. On the other hand, being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer and told by your doctor that you've got two years to live (at best) puts a bit of a damper on the celebration. You're determined to remain positive -- after all, you wouldn't be the first to beat fatalistic odds if this thing were somehow turned around, so there's no harm in being hopeful. You wouldn't say you're lost, but you do want to ensure that you make the most of whatever time you have left -- however long that may be. We can only imagine what you're going through, but on this Feedback Friday we'll do our best to offer how we might spend our time if confronted with the worst news possible -- but armed with your incredibly deep well of positivity.

And in case you didn’t already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let’s dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/251.

On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? Reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details!
  • How do you make the most of the time you have left with positivity when doctors have given you two years to live?
  • People have preferences about looks, personalities, and religious backgrounds for their significant others. Is wishing they hadn’t slept with 100 people before you a valid preference?
  • What does it take for a successful and single 51-year-old woman who travels frequently to find someone with whom to build a family when the dating pool of quality candidates seems so microscopic?
  • While a policy to never pursue romance with a professional connection has served you well in the past, you’ve met someone who makes you want to reconsider this policy. How might you make your interest known while remaining professional?
  • You’d like to improve the relationship with your parents and the way you communicate. What can you do to make things better?
  • If you wanted to start a new business online without using the topics of your current or past expertise, how would you pick a niche and establish your credibility? (Thanks to Brian Clark from Copyblogger for fielding this one!)
  • While you’ll be laid off soon, you’re not worried because you have a generous severance and plenty of leads already. How do you network without people assuming you’re just trying to get a job through their connections?
  • Aside from buying decent mics and recording in a space that’s not echoey as hell, what advice do we have for someone just starting out with podcasting? (One: Join Jason’s free podcasting club!)
  • Life Pro Tip: If you are travelling with someone else and you’re both wearing backpacks, swap them around. When you need stuff from your bag, you’ll have both hands free and you’ll know where your own stuff is.
  • Recommendation of the Week: The Green Prince
  • A quick shout out to Reed!
  • Have any questions, comments, or stories you’d like to share with us? Drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com!
  • Connect with Jordan on Twitter at @JordanHarbinger and Instagram at @jordanharbinger.
  • Connect with Jason on Twitter at @jpdef and Instagram at @JPD, and check out his other show: Grumpy Old Geeks.

Nir Eyal (@nireyal) is a behavioral designer who helps companies design products that move people, and helps people design their own behavior using the principles of consumer psychology. He is the author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. This is Nir's second appearance on the show (check out his first time here).

What We Discuss with Nir Eyal:

  • Why time management is quite literally pain management, and the time you plan to waste is not wasted time.
  • How the issues caused by technology today aren't dissimilar to the issues caused by technology that vexed Aristotle and Socrates thousands of years ago.
  • Why you'll probably find the popular advice to try digital detox as a way to rid yourself of technology's influence over your life about as effective as a fad diet.
  • The damage caused by accepting the media's spin on technology as a pervasive addiction over which we have no control, and what we can do to get the best of these tools without letting them get the best of us.
  • How to nurture your child's healthy relationship with technology by empowering them with an understanding of its opportunity costs.
  • And much more...

Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) is most known for his 20 years on the basketball court as one of the game's most iconic legends. He now focuses his famous tenacity on running Granity Studios, an award-winning multimedia company devoted to creating new ways to tell stories around sports -- like Legacy and the Queen with Annie Matthew.

What We Discuss with Kobe Bryant:

  • What creativity and basketball have in common and what Kobe has carried from the court to his new business.
  • Lessons Kobe has learned from people who are the best at what they do ? from Taylor Swift to Jony Ive to Sean Penn to Kate Winslet to Larry Moss to Oprah to George R.R. Martin.
  • How Kobe manages pressure in high stakes situations on the court and at the head of a creative content studio.
  • The music that gets Kobe in the mindset he needs to excel at whatever he does.
  • The importance of learning how to negotiate with yourself in order to achieve greatness, and how parents might help their kids develop this crucial skill.
  • And much more...

You have a hostile coworker undermining you before management at every opportunity. How can you ensure facts will speak up for you instead of your coworker's toxic fabrications? Never fear! We'll show you how to navigate around a hostile coworker on this Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/248

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • A Detroit vagrant in his 40s probably has enough problems to deal with. Can any good come from pressing charges against him because he tried (and failed) to steal your laptop?
  • You have a hostile coworker undermining you before management at every opportunity. How can you ensure facts will speak up for you instead of your coworker's toxic fabrications?
  • You hear of coworkers getting a promotion because they're "smart." What does it mean to be smart? Is being smart related to IQ? Is it related to emotional intelligence? Is it related to street smarts? Or is it a combination of all of these?
  • As a business owner in a new country who's pioneered your own niche, how do you avoid a race to the bottom in pricing and remain high in quality as competition attempts to elbow into your turf?
  • Is it ever good to name drop when networking?
  • How can you continue to network and problem solve for your peers, but also start to lay the foundation of credibility with your accomplishments to build future -- and likely new leadership positions -- at your company?
  • You reached out to someone in your chosen field, and you were referred to two others who have agreed to meet with you. How can you use the FEW technique effectively when these meetings happen?
  • Is it worth the ROI to obtain expensive credentials (like an MBA) early in your career? Or is charging forward to gain experience more beneficial?
  • Life Pro Tip: When you get a scammy/spammy phone call, tell them: "I think you have the wrong number...this is a government office." Alternatively, you can play this sound into the phone to possibly get removed from the system's rotation.
  • Recommendation of the Week: Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee (Dave Chappelle Episode)
  • A quick shoutout to David Gray Lassiter!
  • Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us? Drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com!
  • Connect with Jordan on Twitter at @JordanHarbinger and Instagram at @jordanharbinger.

Chris Bailey (@chris_bailey) is a productivity expert, host of the Becoming Better Podcast, and the bestselling author of two books about productivity: Hyperfocus, and The Productivity Project. In the time it's taken you to read this, he's probably written another.

What We Discuss with Chris Bailey:

  • The neurochemical reason our brains switch focus every 40 seconds (or less) and what we can do to recapture this hit to our overall productivity.
  • Why giving yourself the time to unfocus productively with what Chris calls scatterfocus is as crucial to your progress as hyperfocus.
  • How Chris harnesses scatterfocus to mull over and solve complicated problems without distraction.
  • What Chris learned by deliberately allowing himself to enter a state of boredom for an hour a day for an entire month (and how he did so creatively).
  • What the attention overload gap is, the problems it can cause, and why we're more susceptible to it than we probably suspect.
  • And much more...
