Today, James sits down with longtime friend and best-selling author Ryan Holiday to discuss his latest book, The Daily Dad: 366 Meditations on Parenting, Love, and Raising Great Kids.
Ryan’s side of the conversation takes place in his charming bookshop - The Painted Porch in Bastrop, Texas - where he only sells books that he personally enjoys reading. Before diving into the heart of their conversation, James and Ryan spend the first 15 minutes discussing ex-President Jimmy Carter. They explore Carter's relationship with Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, who famously asked Carter, "Why Not the Best?" during a job interview and ended up as the title of Carter's 1975 presidential campaign memoir. The conversation provides a fascinating insight into the character of one of America's most beloved presidents.
From there, James and Ryan move onto discussing "The Daily Dad," Ryan's latest book, which offers 366 meditations on parenting and family life. Ryan shares his personal experiences as a father and offers practical advice for navigating the joys and challenges of raising kids. His wisdom is both inspiring and thought-provoking, providing a fresh perspective on the importance of being present and engaged in our children's lives.
Throughout the interview, James and Ryan's chemistry is palpable, as they engage in a lively and insightful conversation about what it means to be a parent and a partner. Their discussion is sure to resonate with parents and non-parents alike, as they explore the complexities of love, family, and the human experience.
