Why Tim Ferriss Does Not Own a Car 

Recently, Tim Ferriss visited our podcast studio to record The Upgrade. We told him that was all he wanted from him, but then we got out the camera and locked the door. (Oh, we’re kidding.

Use This Website as Your Antidote to the Mind-Numbing Kids' Videos on the Internet   Use This Website as Your Antidote to the Mind-Numbing Kids' Videos on the Internet

You Should Definitely Watch Japanese Game Shows With Your Kids   You Should Definitely Watch Japanese Game Shows With Your Kids  

The television lineup at our house is usually strictly divided: there are shows for my kid (80%), shows that my husband and I watch (19.5%), and shows we all enjoy as a family (basically School of Rock). I can now enthusiastically add something to that neglected third category: Japanese game shows.

But every time I’m in one of these high-stakes moments, I inevitably navigate away…
