Steve Magness: Do Hard Things — The Science of Resilience

A cornerstone of this podcast is exploring why we should all Do Hard Things—which just so happens to be the title of today’s guest’s latest book. Meet Steve Magness.


Making his third (but first solo) appearance on the show, Steve is a former elite track and field athlete (4:01 miler), elite coach turned author, and world-renowned expert on all things high performance.


In addition, Steve consults on mental skills development for professional sports teams—including some of the top teams in the NBA—and has coached numerous professional athletes to the Olympics and world championship level.


Today Steve walks us through a new approach to unlocking true toughness and physical and mental resilience—and how to best lead others to optimal performance.

Welcome to another edition of ‘Roll On’, wherein Rich Roll and journalist & author Adam Skolnick riff on matters of interest across sports, culture, entertainment, and self-betterment. 


Given the heartbreaking number of mass and school shootings this year—punctuated by the horrific events in Uvalde—today’s discussion centers on gun violence in America, culminating with a conversation with Senator Cory Booker, who joins via Zoom to help us understand why this problem is so intractable, and what we can do about it.


Specific topics discussed in today’s episode include:

  • Kristian Blummenfelt’s stunning Sub7 Project performance;
  • the downfall of legendary UC Berkeley swimming coach Teri McKeever;
  • the release of Robbie Balenger’s movie The Colorado Crush: 63 Days of Endurance;
  • American gun culture, alarming statistics behind mass shootings, and the political barriers that make it difficult to enact stricter gun laws; and

Irish Gangster Richie Stephens’ Guide to Sobriety‎ (and Second Chances)
JUN 6, 2022
Irish Gangster Richie Stephens’ Guide to Sobriety‎ (and Second Chances)

Drug trafficker. Kidnapper. Alcoholic. Addict. Gang member. International criminal turned sober screen star.


Richie’s story is also the subject of his new book, The Gangster’s Guide to Sobriety—a chronicle of his descent into the abyss and the redemptive slog that followed. It’s a tale so absurd and darkly comic, that it’s currently being developed for television by the creators of the hit show Silicon Valley.
