Would you record 400 hours of podcasts?

The Crazy Wisdom host Stewart Alsop shares it all.

Stewart Alsop III is not just the host of The Crazy Wisdom podcast; he’s a friend and a fellow adventurer in the wild world of podcasting. Our paths first crossed when Stewart invited me onto his show to dive into the magic behind Since then, he’s embarked on an epic journey, recording nearly 400 episodes, quenching his insatiable curiosity, and even discovering a unique way to monetize his passion.

Today, I had the absolute pleasure of welcoming Stewart to The Novice. Our plan was to explore the nuts and bolts of producing countless episodes, staying motivated, and all things podcasting. But, as often happens with Stewart, the conversation took a thrilling detour. We plunged into the depths of San Francisco’s underground culture, reminisced about his wild farm life with goats, and the vibrant mix of truck-driving Trump supporters and perpetually-high, earth-loving hippies.
