I. Love. This. Episode. It's wonderfully entertaining and at times, poignant. @tferriss continues to surprise us with rich and rare inside-looks into fascinating figures. Jamie Foxx is one hell of a storyteller.

Got through about 20 minutes on my drive in to work - can't wait to listen to the rest. Jamie is an incredible story teller. LOL at the pauses to kill flies.

Probably the best episode I've heard. Jamie's ability to tell a story is insane. I've listened to a lot of podcasts over the years but the biggest thing I took away from here was not just the messages surrounding fear, struggle and success - but also his delivery. The dude just kills it in every story and knows how to bring it all back even after going on a mini-rant. @iamjamiefoxx is a brilliant storyteller and Tim did a great job letting him share!

@thecoolestcool Ross I was also impressed that Jamie would always bring back his bunny trails by explaining the reason why the story was relevant to the question asked.

This episode is one of my favorite I've ever done.

Jamie Foxx (@iamjamiefoxx) is an Academy Award-winning actor, a Grammy Award-winning musician, and a famous standup and improv comedian. He is, without a doubt, the most consummate performer and entertainer I have ever met.  In the 2.5 hours we spent together in his home studio, he blew my mind.

We cover a TON in this wide-ranging episode, including many never-before-heard stories. Here's just a tiny sample of what you'll hear:

    • Jamie's workout routine
    • Jamie's origin story -- how he used $400 to match a $1,000,000 party thrown by Puff Daddy; building up his network with Kanye, Jay Z, and Pharrell; expanding his fan base; and bombing horribly at the beginning.
    • What he learned during the magic of In Living Color
    • Jamie playing live music throughout our interview.
    • Impersonations (and lessons learned from many of the following) -- Quincy Jones, Ed Sheeran, Ray Charles, Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Cosby, Doc Rivers, Kermit the Frog, Sammy Davis, Jr., LeBron James, Bill Clinton, Tamara Rawitt, Shawn Wayans, Jim Carrey, Oprah Winfrey, Norman Lear, Mike Tyson, and others.
    • The key skills Jamie learned from his grandmother.
    • Jamie's parenting style.
    • And much, much more...

Amazing even if you have no idea who Tim Ferriss or Jamie Foxx are.
