The Science of Adventure with Jon Levy


Click here to download this episode.

Nothing good happens after 2 am – except the most epic experiences of your life!

Jon Levy explains how, by using science (yes, SCIENCE!) he went from being a nerd – before nerds were cool – to spending Thanksgiving at Kiefer Sutherland’s house, hosting dinner parties for some of the world’s most interesting people, and narrowly escaping death while running with the bulls.

His new book, The 2 AM Principle: Discover the Science of Adventure changed my mindset about adventure after about 10 minutes of reading! It’s a must-read for those of us in love with travel and adventure!
